LA Chargers: Three bold predictions for the receiving corps in 2020
By Jason Reed
The LA Chargers have always seemingly had marquee receivers on the roster, as least as far as the last 15-20 years are concerned. Right now, Keenan Allen is the face of the receiving corps in Los Angeles and has been elite while being the Chargers number one.
Early in his career, there were concerns around Allen being injury-prone, but he has thankfully shaken those narratives off his back and has produced three consecutive seasons with over 1,100 yards with six touchdowns in each of the three seasons.
Alongside him is Mike Williams, the seventh overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft who similarly dealt with injury concerns in his rookie season but has since overcome them and posted his first 1,000-yard season last year while leading the league in yards per reception.
Joining Allen and Williams is Joe Reed and K.J Hill, who were selected in the fifth and seventh rounds of the 2020 NFL Draft, respectively. Reed and Hill both bring different skill sets and make the Chargers’ receiving corps much deeper than it was, as Andre Patton was the team’s third receiver.
The weapons are plentiful in LA and the Chargers have been touted as being the perfect team to succeed with Tyrod Taylor, at least by the fans, because of the vast depth in the secondary.
A change of scheming, as well as a chance under center, are both variables in how the receiver corps is going to perform in 2020. Luckily, we think we can bring you a decent idea of what to expect from the Chargers’ receivers in 2020.
