Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Jalen Guyton is set to make his return to the field this week as the team plays host to the Denver Broncos in a critical Week 17 showdown in the AFC West.

The third-year wideout was activated off the Reserve/COVID-19 list this week, a designation that forced him to miss last Sunday’s 41-29 loss at the Houston Texans, a game that fellow receiver Mike Williams also missed due to COVID.

With Guyton good to go for Sunday, what are his fantasy prospects this week?

Fantasy Football analysis: Chargers WR Jalen Guyton

Guyton generally only receives a handful of targets each game but makes the most of them. Prior to his absence last week, he caught nine passes for 187 yards and three touchdowns in three games. A definite all or nothing player in fantasy.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Guyton’s streak of games with a touchdown is encouraging. With Williams also back however, it’d be wise to play it safe and sit him.
