2. Cameron Bynum
Cameron Bynum has shown some potential in the NFL thus far and any Vikings fan that stumbles across this article might have already commented under the article after seeing his name on this article. Yes, he had an interception last week. Congrats.
In reality, the Minnesota Vikings have to start a rookie at safety as veteran Harrison Smith is missing the game with a knee injury. This is a huge loss for the Vikings as Smith was probably the team's biggest weapon against the Chargers.
We have seen other teams have success against Justin Herbert and the offense by disguising defensive schemes and making changes from the pre-snap read. Smith is someone who can play literally anywhere on the field and could have given Herbert some fits with the adjustments he would make at the line of scrimmage.
Regardless of his interception and his perceived potential, Bynum is no Smith and he is a fourth-round-pick rookie who is starting just his second game. While he got some reps under his belt last week against Baltimore, Lamar Jackson is not the kind of vertical quarterback that Justin Herbert.
The Chargers should attack the deep portion of the field with their two WR1s, Keenan Allen and Mike Williams.
