WR Jalen Guyton

The return of Jalen Guyton this season was hyped beyond belief. Many fans thought that once Guyton returned to action Justin Herbert would have his favorite deep threat again and it would unlock new dimensions of the offense.

In reality, Guyton looked like a speed receiver that was coming off of a torn ACL that took longer to recover from than expected. He wasn't nearly as dynamic and now he feels like a complete afterthought. Entering Week 18, Guyton has 10 catches for 89 yards on the season.

RB Joshua Kelley

Taken in the fourth round of the 2020 NFL Draft, Joshua Kelley never meshed with the Chargers. Despite becoming only the second Chargers running back to score a touchdown in his first career game (joining LaDainian Tomlinson), Kelley just never got over the hump despite several chances.

The Chargers need to fix the running back room on a fly this offseason and Kelley is not going to be part of that solution.

C Will Clapp

Will Clapp did an admirable job filling in for Corey Linsley after he was put on the non-football illness list with a heart issue but it simply wasn't the same. Unfortunately, Clapp was injured against the Buffalo Bills and was subsequently placed on the IR, so he will not be playing in Week 18.

WR Alex Erickson

Alex Erickson started on the team merely as a practice squad option that was only called upon when injuries got drastic. However, over the course of the season, Erickson seemed to step up whenever his number was called by the Chargers. It wouldn't be totally surprising if the Chargers brought the veteran wide receiver back as a depth option.
