Donald Parham Jr. Leads The Chargers In Receiving In Week 18

Monday, January 8, 12:15 AM

Los Angeles Chargers tight end Donald Parham Jr. led the team in receiving yards in a Week 18 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs backups. Parham was targeted six times, making five catches for 83 yards. Parham has always had tantalizing upside thanks to his size and athleticism, but injuries and inconsistency have left him as a fantasy afterthought despite all of that. The Chargers roster is sure to look quite different come Week 1 of next season, but Parham is unlikely to carve out a key role outside of his usual red zone involvement.

Sam LaPorta News

Sam LaPorta Hauls In Nine Passes In Victory Over Buccaneers

Sunday, January 21, 6:44 PM

Detroit Lions tight end Sam LaPorta caught nine of his 11 targets for 65 yards in the win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the NFC Divisional Round game. LaPorta entered Sunday's contest with a "questionable" tag due to a knee injury he suffered in Week 18, but he ultimately suited up and was clearly good to go. Barring any setbacks with his knee, the rookie from Iowa will remain on the fantasy radar against the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship Game. The 49ers allowed the 11th-fewest fantasy points per game to tight ends during the regular season, but he's proven to be virtually matchup-proof.
