LA Chargers offensive weapons that deserve a Pro Bowl nod in 2021:

RB Austin Ekeler

Austin Ekeler has been able to stay healthy this season (knocks on wood) and is proving that he is one of the best all-around running backs in the entire league. While he might not rack up the rushing yards like Derrick Henry or Jonathan Taylor, he is the best dual-threat back in the league right now, especially with Christian McCaffrey and Alvin Kamara hurt.

Ekeler has been the motor to drive the Chargers' offense at times and the team really should look to get him involved more. Every game that the Chargers have won Ekeler has played a big role in and he absolutely should be one of the AFC running backs that gets a Pro Bowl nod.

WR Keenan Allen

Keenan Allen had a slow start to the 2021 season that included some drops but since then he has looked like the Keenan Allen of old and has been Justin Herbert's main target. At the time of writing this, Allen ranks seventh in the NFL in receiving yards (third in the AFC) and third in receptions (second in AFC). Allen hasn't found the endzone much with only two touchdowns but he is still Pro Bowl-worthy regardless.

You probably noticed that Mike Williams is not on this list and unless he finishes the season like how he started he will not get his second Pro Bowl nod. Williams is on pace for a great year but is not one of the best receivers in the league. While he does have seven touchdowns, he ranks 19th in total receiving yards.

Next, let's dive into the Chargers offensive linemen who deserve a Pro Bowl nod.
