Jalen Guyton
24-Year-Old Wide ReceiverWR
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Despite no formal preseason, Guyton emerged toward the end of training camp to claim a hold on the team's No. 3 wideout job, which he'd never relinquish on his way to playing the 12th-most snaps of any wide receiver in 2020. That level of playing time never really translated into steady volume, however, as the 23-year-old was primarily used as a speedy decoy in order to open up underneath routes for Keenan Allen, Hunter Henry and Austin Ekeler. The end result was Guyton catching three or more passes just three times all season, with most of his 511 receiving yards coming toward the latter half of the 2020 campaign when a number of Chargers' pass catchers were injured. It remains to be seen if that speed role will still be a priority under new offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi, but any loss of playing time could easily be buoyed by seeing more consequential targets. The Chargers waived fellow wideout Tyron Johnson at the end of the preseason, but it now appears rookie third-round pick Josh Palmer is ahead of Guyton for the No. 3 spot at wide receiver.

ANALYSIS
It was a disappointing outing for Guyton after emerging as the team's third wideout in the Week 1 win. Keenan Allen, Mike Williams and Austin Ekeler combined for 260 of the 338 total receiving yards, so the lack of opportunities could easily be attributed to the trio's brilliance. It might be difficult for Guyton to break out against a Chiefs defense that has done a good job limiting big plays from the passing game this season.
