Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Jalen Guyton could have a key role on the Chargers offense in a Week 13 game against the New England Patriots. Guyton hasn't done much in his three games so far this season, totaling just 13 fantasy points, with 12 of them coming in Week 10. But with Keenan Allen (quadricep) questionable after missing practice on Wednesday, Guyton would slide into the WR1 spot for the Chargers mostly by default. Guyton is the fastest pass catcher on the roster, so he's always a threat for a big play, but consistency has always been an issue. He's a decent fit in a best ball lineup, but hard to trust in standard leagues.

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Jalen Guyton made just one catch in a Week 12 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Guyton was targeted a healthy five times, but came up with just one catch, gaining four yards. It was a tough game for the Chargers offense in general, but Guyton definitely had a few passes thrown his way where he could have made a play to come down with the catch. Next week against the New England Patriots should be a better matchup, but Guyton generally remains off the fantasy radar in all but the deepest formats.

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Jalen Guyton (groin) will play on Sunday night against the Baltimore Ravens. Guyton has played in only two games this season, totaling four grabs for 41 yards and a touchdown. Of course, that type of production won't make him an attractive fantasy asset. However, with the Chargers looking for answers outside of Keenan Allen and Austin Ekeler, Guyton could be streamed in deep fantasy setups.

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Jalen Guyton (groin) could have a significant role in the passing game in a Week 12 game against the Baltimore Ravens. Guyton missed Week 11 with a groin injury but was able to get in an early-week limited practice and is trending toward playing on Sunday. Assuming he's active and healthy, he could be the second option behind an also-injured Keenan Allen (shoulder). The Chargers receiving corps is in rough shape, but someone will need to step off and the speedy Guyton could be the one with the deep ball role, a pass that quarterback Justin Herbert excels at. Even if he's fully healthy, there's a ton of variance in Guyton's game, making him an even riskier choice this week. There's certainly upside for those willing to take a near-zero floor risk though.

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Jalen Guyton (groin) was limited in Wednesday's practice ahead of his team's Week 12 matchup against the Baltimore Ravens. Guyton caught four passes for 41 yards and a touchdown back in Week 10 but he missed Week 11's loss with a groin injury. His ability to get in a limited session on Wednesday is a step in the right direction heading into Week 12. Fantasy manager will want to check in on Thursday and Friday's practice reports before plugging Guyton into their lineups as a flex option. He could have a big role in Week 12 with several LA pass-catchers banged up.

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Jalen Guyton (groin) will be inactive for Sunday's game against the Green Bay Packers, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Guyton was added to the injury report Friday and evidently wasn't able to recover in time for kickoff. This is brutal news for Los Angeles. Already weakened at wide receiver, the Chargers will be without two additional pass-catchers on Sunday in Guyton and Gerald Everett (chest) out. Look for Quentin Johnston and tight end Donald Parham Jr. to see increased volume behind Keenan Allen.

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Jalen Guyton (groin) and running back Isaiah Spiller (illness) were added to the injury report on Friday and are questionable to play against the Green Bay Packers in Week 11. Guyton was a limited participant, putting his status for Sunday's game up in the air. He seemed to operate as the Chargers' No. 2 receiver last week, catching four passes for 41 yards and a touchdown while playing 79 percent of snaps. If active this week, he should remain quite involved, ranking as a high-end WR4 in most fantasy leagues. Meanwhile, Spiller was unable to practice. Even if he gets healthy in time for kickoff Sunday, his role as the No. 3 running back behind Austin Ekeler and Joshua Kelley renders him a non-factor for fantasy purposes.

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Jalen Guyton could end up with a bigger role in a Week 11 game against the Green Bay Packers. Guyton played his first game of the season in Week 9, and then scored his first touchdown in Week 10, finishing up as a solid WR2 in most fantasy formats. With Keenan Allen (shoulder) questionable and possibly limited if he plays, Guyton could take on a bigger role on the road in Green Bay. He's a solid speculative add in deeper leagues and could have some FLEX value if Allen ultimately sits.

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Jalen Guyton caught a touchdown in a Week 10 loss to the Detroit Lions. Guyton, who made his season debut in Week 9 after coming off injured reserve, was targeted six times, making four catches for 41 yards. His touchdown came on a seed from quarterback Justin Herbert from 18 yards out in the third quarter. With Mike Williams (knee) and Joshua Palmer (knee) both on IR, Guyton could continue to see his role grow and is worth grabbing off the waiver wire in deeper leagues.

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Jalen Guyton (knee) made his return to the field in a Week 9 win over the New York Jets. He ended up seeing two targets but was unable to come down with a catch. He did appear to make it through the game without suffering any further injury, however. Guyton, one of the fastest players on the Chargers roster, tore his ACL in Week 3 last season and had not been on an NFL field since. With Mike Williams (knee) and Joshua Palmer (knee) both on IR, Guyton could be worth at least a short-term add for the next few weeks, beginning in Week 10 against the Detroit Lions.

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Jalen Guyton (knee) is active for the Monday night game against the New York Jets to close out Week 9 action. Guyton came in questionable to play but will be active for the Chargers for the first time since tearing his ACL in Week 3 of last season. The 26-year-old was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list when the Chargers placed Joshua Palmer (knee) on Injured Reserve over the weekend. Guyton will probably be eased back in by the Bolts, but he'll have a chance to carve out some playing time behind Keenan Allen and rookie first-rounder Quentin Johnston while Palmer is sidelined for the next four games. Fantasy managers don't need to run out and add Guyton off the waiver wire, but he's a name to watch in deeper leagues.

The Los Angeles Chargers placed wide receiver Joshua Palmer (knee) on Injured Reserve on Sunday and activated receiver Jalen Guyton (knee) from IR in a corresponding move. Palmer was injured in last Sunday night's win over the Chicago Bears and will now be forced to miss the next four games. Keenan Allen will remain a target hog in LA's offense with Palmer out, but rookie first-rounder Quentin Johnston will now have a sizable role boost moving forward, beginning on Monday night against the New York Jets. The 24-year-old Palmer won't be eligible to return from IR until Week 13 against the New England Patriots on Dec. 3. The 22-year-old Johnston becomes an urgent waiver-wire pickup if you are in need of some receiver help in fantasy leagues. Johnston had season-highs in catches (five), targets (six) and receiving yards (50) in Week 8.

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Jalen Guyton (knee) won't come off the PUP list ahead of the Week 7 matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs. Guyton continues to work his way back from an ACL injury that he suffered during Week 3 of last season. The good news is, Guyton was able to log in limited practice sessions this week. However, he's not quite ready to return to the field. The hope is that he'll be ready in time for next week's matchup versus the Chicago Bears. Once healthy, Guyton will likely serve as depth, which probably won't result in weekly fantasy value.

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Jalen Guyton (knee), who tore his ACL last September in Week 3, will begin the 2023 regular season on the Physically Unable to Perform list, according to a source. As such, he will miss at least the first four games and can begin practicing with the team again after two games. Entering Week 1, the Chargers are set to open the year with Keenan Allen, Mike Williams, Joshua Palmer and rookie first-rounder Quentin Johnston as their four top receivers. Guyton, 26, has caught 61 of his 109 targets for 1,023 yards and six touchdowns in 38 games (11 starts) over his four NFL seasons with the Bolts. All six of his TDSs came in 2020 and 2021.
