2018 Fantasy Outlook
Inman began the 2017 season with the Chargers but ended it with the Bears after being traded midseason. The change of scenery led to increased production for the receiver, as Inman went from not having a clear role in Los Angeles to averaging a career-high 14.5 yards per catch with Chicago. This didn't come out of nowhere, however, as Inman was similarly efficient in 2016 with the Chargers when he caught 56 passes for 810 yards (14.0 YPC) and four scores. With known visits to both Dallas and Indianapolis this offseason, it's somewhat surprising the 29-year-old remains a free agent at press time, though there remains plenty of time for him to land another contract in advance of Week 1.

Visiting Detroit

Inman will visit with the Lions on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Inman failed to latch on with a team last offseason but eventually made an impact after he signed with the Colts in mid-October. He caught 28 of 39 targets for 304 yards and three touchdowns in nine regular-season games, later adding eight catches for 108 yards and another score in two playoff appearances. The 30-year-old had an 800-yard season for the Chargers in 2016 and owns a career mark of 8.1 yards per target, but most teams seem to view him as a No. 4-quality receiver rather than a consistent contributor. He likely would land fourth on the depth chart in Detroit, where Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones (knee) and Danny Amendola project as the regular three-wide alignment.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Inman has had an increased role on offense each of his first three seasons with the Chargers, with the biggest leap coming last season, as he recorded a career-high 58 receptions for 810 yards and four touchdowns. However, 2017 will be Inman's biggest challenge yet, as the 28-year-old underwent core muscle surgery in the offseason. He'll face competition from rookie Mike Williams, who is expected to leapfrog Inman on the depth chart, thus leaving the veteran in the No. 5 spot. Williams is tending to a back injury, though, which could delay Inman's likely fall down the depth chart.
Pressed into action after injuries plagued the Chargers' wide receiving corps, Inman responded well, tallying 35 catches for 486 yards and three touchdowns. However, with starting wideouts Keenan Allen (spleen) and Stevie Johnson (groin) healthy and free-agent addition Travis Benjamin likely manning the slot, Inman's path to the field seems clogged. Much like his previous two seasons, Inman's playing time this season will likely depend on the health of the people above him on the depth chart.
Inman was pressed into service for the final two games of the 2014 season when Keenan Allen went down with a broken collarbone, and he responded with 12 receptions and 158 yards in those two games. With a crowded group of receivers ahead of him on the depth chart, it will be tough for him to get many looks this season unless a few guys get injured, but he proved that he can be productive when needed and actually showed tremendous hands and athleticism during his limited window of opportunity.
Inman will have a hard time making the final roster in San Diego.
