Some players on the LA Chargers get more love than they probably deserve.

The LA Chargers are always one of the most interesting teams to watch in the NFL. Every season it seems like the Chargers have the talent to make a run at the NFL Playoffs and more times than not they find ways to lose games either from bad coaching or pure bad luck.

This season has been no different. The Chargers have showcased the talent to be a playoff team, headlined by rookie quarterback Justin Herbert, but have beaten themselves in big games. The Chargers had two-possession leads over the Kansas City Chiefs, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New Orleans Saints.

Realistically, the Chargers should have won two of those three games and should be at least 4-2, not 2-4.

All of this to say that Charger players usually get underrated by the mainstream media because of how unfortunate the team is. Players like Keenan Allen, Hunter Henry and even Austin Ekeler do not get the widespread love that they deserve.

However, Charger fans are also guilty of the contrary — overrating players on the Chargers roster and legitimately thinking that they are far more talented than they really are.

We hate to be the bearer of bad news, but here are the three most overrated players on the LA Chargers roster, starting with no. 3.
