2021 Fantasy Outlook
At 6-8, 237 pounds, Parham is a massive tight end. The former XFLer surprisingly earned one of the final spots on the Chargers' active roster to end training camp last season and played in 13 games. The 23-year-old showed some promise over the final two games of the 2020 campaign, filling in for the injured Hunter Henry, recording five catches for 84 yards and a touchdown despite limited targets. Henry's now gone, but the team opted to sign veteran Jared Cook in his stead, meaning Parham will once again be forced to claw for additional opportunities as a run-blocking option, this time while facing competition from 2021 third-round pick Tre' McKitty.

Returns for preseason finale
TELos Angeles Chargers
August 30, 2021
Parham (tailbone) returned for Saturday's preseason game against Seattle, catching his lone target for five yards.
ANALYSIS
Parham missed the previous game with a tailbone injury, slowing down his momentum after reports from training camp named him as one of the early standouts. He should have a depth role this season, but fantasy utility will be a long shot unless veteran tight end Jared Cook misses time.
