Los Angeles Chargers All-Decade wide receivers:

WR1: Keenan Allen

Keenan Allen is the best draft pick that the Los Angeles Chargers made from this past decade. The Chargers selected him in the third round of the 2013 NFL Draft and he has blossomed into one of the best receivers in the league and is undoubtedly the best receiver of the decade.

If Allen signs an extension after this season and can give the Chargers another 3-4 1,000 yard seasons, on top of 2020, then he will arguably go down as the greatest wide receiver in team history over Lance Alworth.

Keenan has a total of 6,405 receiving yards on 524 receptions with 34 touchdowns. He has nine mroe touchdowns than the next best, 300 more receptions and over 2,000 more yards.

WR2: Malcolm Floyd

Malcolm Floyd was a solid deep-threat option for the Chargers during the turn of the century and even if we included his 2008 and 2009 season it would not come close to Allen.

However, Floyd is second in all of those categories mentioned and while he was never an elite number one like Allen, he was one of the best deep-target receivers in the entire league during his prime in the early 2000s.

WR3: Tyrell Williams

The Los Angeles Chargers were really hurt by losing a legitimate third receiver in Tyrell Williams last season as the team’s production outside of Mike Williams and Allen was virtually nothing.

That is because Williams was one of Philip Rivers’ favorite targets and was one of the most dangerous deep threats in all of football, and the numbers show. Despite never being the best receiver on the team, Williams had 2,530 yards and 17 touchdowns in only 52 games.
