2. Michael Bandy

Michael Bandy became a fan favorite in the preseason by putting up the most impressive numbers in games that did not matter. It was shocking when the Bolts cut him after his preseason performance but due to the litany of injuries, Bandy eventually got a shot on the active roster.

There were games in which Bandy had to play a big role with so many injuries to the receiving room and in those games the Chargers were justified in their decision. Bandy made some nice plays as a receiver but overall, the talent gap was more than obvious when he was on the field.

Unlike Michel, Bandy is going to be active for the Chargers down the stretch as a depth option in the receiver room — at least he should be. It would be roster malpractice to only have four active receivers on the roster but it would not be the first time the Chargers have done this.

While he should be active for most of the games, he is not going to get much playing time (if any) with the Chargers completely healthy. With Mike Williams back in the fold in Week 14 Bandy played just two offensive snaps.

That is probably the ceiling of the playing time that Bandy is going to get this season barring injury. He is not part of the offensive game plan and as things really get down to the wire, it would not be shocking if the team does use his roster spot for someone else who is getting healthy.
