To cap off the season the Los Angeles Chargers will head to Arrowhead Stadium to take on a Kansas City Chiefs team full of backups as they rest for the playoffs.

Fantasy Football analysis: Chargers WRs Mike Williams, Jalen Guyton, Tyron Johnson

LA’s leading receiver Keenan Allen was placed on the COVID-19 list earlier this week, so they’ll be without him on Sunday.

Williams is the team’s second-leading pass-catcher but has over 300 yards less and four fewer touchdowns than Allen. He hasn’t had a game with more than 55 receiving yards or scored a touchdown since November 22. Without Allen, he’ll be looked at frequently. He might have the chance to have the best game of his season while potentially going up against backups.

Guyton has had over 50 yards just one time since Week 8 and hasn’t scored a touchdown since Week 7. Even up against backups, don’t look for him to get you a ton of points.

Johnson has had an even more underwhelming season than Guyton. He has just 18 catches all year for 363 yards. He has zero games with more than 65 yards receiving. Though he doesn't have two scores in the last three weeks, which is better than any other receiving threat the Chargers have.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Start Williams; he should see a ton of targets with Allen out.

Sit Guyton and Johnson.
