$Signed a four-year, $2.68 million contract with the Chargers in May of 2017.
Notches 2.5 sacks
CBLos Angeles Chargers
September 29, 2019
King posted four tackles (three solo) and 2.5 sacks in Sunday's 30-10 win over the Dolphins.
ANALYSIS
The Chargers sent King on multiple blitzes in this contest, and he capitalized with a career-high 2.5 sacks. King didn't record a sack over 16 games last year, so it's definitely bonus points for him. The 24-year-old's IDP value is still low considering he only has 11 tackles through four games.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
The do-it-all secondary player was a certifiable weapon for the Chargers' defense last season, tallying 76 tackles, four sacks and an interception in his rookie campaign. While the selection of 2018 first-round-pick Derwin James likely ends any hope of King earning a starting spot at safety, the 23-year-old is expected to reprise his role as a multi-faceted cornerback capable of blitzing from the box or covering receivers in nickel and dime sets.
