Graded Ranking

When using these rankings and trying to put a score on it, the LA Chargers average ranking on all positions was 2.5. This feels pretty accurate to me. Generally speaking, the Chargers are set with their wide receiver, running back, and tight end units.

The offensive line will be a big key in figuring out the ceiling for the offense. If Campen can improve the interior and left tackle positions, the offense would be much closer to elite in Los Angeles.

Another variable that will of course be important is quarterback. Specifically, who will be the quarterback throughout the years? It’s definitely Taylor as of now, but that could change if he doesn’t play up to expectations.

Taylor has what he needs in an offensive scheme that fits him with a stacked roster. If he gets off to a poor start though, the Chargers could throw in first-round pick Justin Herbert earlier than expected.

When it comes to offensive units, it’s the Chiefs and then everyone else. That’s true for the whole league, and even more true in the AFC West. The ammunition they have with Mahomes and the insanely skilled weapons they can throw at any team is something the league will have to deal with for at least a decade.

Who will be the Chargers' QB by Week 1?. Next

The LA Chargers are on pace to have the number two offense in the division as of now. The Raiders and Broncos generally have bigger question marks, despite improving their talent throughout the offseason. A lot of it will come down to the quarterback position for both squads. Is Carr still the guy in *checks notes* Las Vegas? Can Lock be as efficient through 16 games as he was in the last month of the season?
