Los Angeles Chargers Team Stats 2019 Los Angeles Chargers Stats

5-11, 4th AFC West

@ KC

6:00 pm GMT, 12/29

The 2018 Los Angeles Chargers were one of the better all around teams in the NFL. The team ranked 8th in both offense and defense but a miserable 31st in special teams. The offense should continue to look as explosive as it was last year. Philip Rivers projects to have another great year at the QB position and will look for similarly productive seasons from Keenan Allen, Mike Williams, and Travis Benjamin. He’ll also get back Hunter Henry who missed all of last season with injury. However, there is some concern with Melvin Gordon who’s threatening the team with no showing up to training camp without a new contract. That’s definitely a situation to keep an eye on as it could have major implications on their 2019 season.

Likewise, the Chargers’ defense was stellar in 2018. They were 6th in defending the running game and were a great unit in defending the oposition’s passing game. They ranked 8th in points allowed and 9th in yards allowed to opponents last season. In 2019, their defense looks to have some more holes though I don’t doubt they’ll rank in the top half of the league again. They addressed a weak linebacking spot in the offseason and will retain a pair of great defensive ends. Casey Hayward wasn’t able to go to a third straight Pro Bowl though the defensive back had a great year.

Backing Up Philip Rivers?

After backing up Phillip Rivers for one year, Geno Smith has departed and is now on the Seattle Seahawks. That left Cardale Jones as the Rivers’ backup and that front office quickly addressed that issue. Once Buffalo Bills starter Tyrod Taylor was brought in to shore up the backup spot with a two year, $11 million dollar contract.

Though backup quarterbacks are usually nothing to be heralded about, Taylor brings an expereienced QB that should be able to help out the team should anything happen to Rivers. In 3 starts with the Browns last season, Taylor was good for 473 passing yards and 2 TDs. However, he’s also a dual threat option and rushed for 125 yards and a TD in 2018. While Chargers fans likely won’t see much action from Taylor and probably won’t want to, he’ll be an experienced vet who the Chargers can depend on.

How did the Chargers reshape their linebacking core?

One of the Chargers biggest free agency concerns surrounded beefing up their linebacking core and that’s exactly what GM Tom Telesco did at the start of free agency. He brought in Thomas Davis from Carolina and resigned Denzel Perryman to two year contracts of $10.5 and $12 million, respectively. While Davis wasn’t the biggest name out there or a huge difference maker, he’ll bring an impact player and flexibility to the linebacking position. Even at the age of 35, he was ranked the 19th LB in 2018 by Pro Football Focus.

Meanwhile, Denzel Perryman will return for the middle linebacker position where he’s been a dominant force for LA. He’s been a great clog in the running game and has seen consistent stats in his games. However, the risk with signing Perryman is his injury risk. In his first 4 pro seasons, he’s yet to play a full year and only logged 16 games played over the past two years. While he’s a high ceiling player, Perryman needs to stay healthy and put up the same type of stats to make this a steal for the Chargers. Otherwise, you’re paying $6 million a year for a player who’s only going to suit up for your team for half a season.

A new punter?

Kickers and punters are some of the most underrated positions in the NFL but they’re always important. Just ask fellow LA punter Johnny Hekker who’s in with the “Punters are people too” movement. After less than a year after bringing in Donnie Jones, the Chargers decided they needed another change at the position. He simply wasn’t the solution as he only averaged 42.3 yards per punt and was non tendered a contract after the season ended.

This offseason, the Chargers went out and acquired two punters to compete for the starting job. Tyler Newsom was brought in as an undrafted rookie and Ty Long came via the CFL. While both neither player has much of a track record, they’ll get to battle it out at training camp and compete for the starting job. Newsome comes from Notre Dame and set the school record for single game average punting while Long averaged roughly 48-49 yards per punt in his two years.
