Phillips is used primarily as blocking tight end in San Diego. He has a total of five receptions in two seasons with the Chargers, and that does not figure to change anytime soon with Antonio Gates and Ladarius Green on the team.
Phillips injured his knee in December of 2013, so his availability for the upcoming system is very much in doubt. When healthy, he is only the third-string tight end and is generally only utilized as a blocker when he is called upon.
Phillips is expected to compete with Ladarius Green for the all-important role of backup to Antonio Gates in San Diego.
Jason Witten's primary backup came back from a torn ACL to record 15 catches for 101 yards and his first NFL touchdown last season. With Martellus Bennett now out of the picture there should be more snaps, and targets, for Phillips but he won't be much of a fantasy factor unless Witten goes down.
Backup TE lost all of 2010 to injury, and while he's solid in every facet of the game he won't have a big role in the offense even if he stays healthy.
Phillips outplayed Martellus Bennett last season, and while he doesn't have Bennett's athleticism or pass-catching upside he would fit in comfortably behind Jason Witten as the Cowboys' #2 tight end if called upon.
