WR3 potential?

Allen and Williams will be the only LA Chargers’ receivers drafted in every fantasy format. There’s some interesting possibilities when looking towards the future in keeper or dynasty leagues though. Jalen Guyton, K.J. Hill, and Joe Reed could have streaming potential if there is another injury of some kind to the receiving group.

Guyton could be an interesting week to week proposition if Williams misses extended time. Still, even that feels like somewhat of a stretch given that the Chargers have Austin Ekeler and Hunter Henry getting a chunk of receiving targets.

Hill is an interesting option from the standpoint of the future, but it’s hard to see many fantasy players rostering him for that purpose this season. If he makes some plays this year, perhaps he becomes a guy you look at in next year’s draft, but I’m not seeing 2020 potential in any format.

Reed would be the guy to look at if you’re in a deep league in my opinion. He’s been practicing at both receiver and running back. The Chargers envision him as an offensive wildcard, plus he had 4.4 speed. His route running ability is certainly a level above Guyton’s and he has better speed than Hill.

The kick return game could be a huge asset for a fantasy team. If he could get two kick return TD’s this year, his ownership rate in leagues might really start to go up for the future.
