Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Josh Palmer was a complete non-factor in the team’s 41-22 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals last Sunday. The rookie only commanded a single target in the contest, catching zero passes for zero yards on the afternoon.
Palmer has made minimal impact within the offense this season, averaging only a few catches a game. With Keenan Allen ruled out of Sunday’s home matchup against the New York Giants, will Palmer see an uptick in targets?
Fantasy Football analysis: Chargers WR Josh Palmer
Through 12 games this season, Palmer has caught just 15 of 21 targets for 168 yards and a touchdown. He has struggled to be a consistent target, even with quarterback Justin Herbert putting up big numbers most weeks. It’s hard to find a footing when the aforementioned Allen and Mike Williams are the top two receiving weapons on the team.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Even with Allen out, there is no indication that Palmer will suddenly break out with a surprise performance. Sit him.
