Who Will Lead the Los Angeles Chargers in Receiving in 2024? With Keenan Allen traded to the Chicago Bears and Mike Williams to the Jets, the Los Angeles Chargers are entering the 2024 NFL season with a significantly restructured receiving corps. This opens up opportunities for new and existing players to step up and become Justin Herbert‘s top target. That being said who will lead the team as the WR1?

Los Angeles Chargers WR Contenders

Quentin Johnston

Drafted in the first round in 2023, Quentin Johnston has the potential to become a primary receiver for the Chargers. His speed and ability to make plays downfield make him a strong candidate to lead the team in receiving yards. Although he didn’t have the rookie year many had hoped, another full offseason with the team combined with all the targets up for grabs could lead to a breakout year this upcoming season.

Ladd McConkey

The rookie from Georgia, drafted in 2024, brings agility and versatility to the Chargers. McConkey’s route-running abilities and great hands highlight his potential to become a key offensive weapon. Many analysts and pundits have deemed McConkey as one of the steals of the NFL Draft and a potential offensive rookie of the year candidate.

Josh Palmer

With Allen and Williams gone, Palmer is poised to take on a larger role in the offense. Palmer is the “veteran” despite being drafted in 2021. He’s shown promise when given action which could lead to even more improvement next season.

Will Dissly and Hayden Hurst:

As the new tight ends for the Chargers, both Dissly and Hurst bring experience and reliability. While traditionally tight ends might not lead a team in receiving yards (Travis Kelce cough cough), their roles in the offense could be significant, especially in the red zone, but possibly in receiving yards as well.

Who do you think will lead the Chargers in receiving yards this season?

The Chargers’ new-look receiving group promises an exciting and competitive season. These players have the potential to step up and fill the void left by Allen and Williams, making this an interesting season to watch for Chargers fans.
