Losing ground for WR3

Second-year wide receiver Josh Palmer had worked with the starting unit for most of the offseason OTAs, something that has clearly carried over into the early stages of training camp. Popper did note Guyton has put together a solid camp and likely could be used in specific sub packages whenever the team needs additional speed on the field, but it's hardly a ringing endorsement for the 25-year-old after two consecutive seasons as a starter. It doesn't seem as if Guyton is on the roster bubble yet, but special teams standouts such as DeAndre Carter, Joe Reed and Trevon Bradford could provide extra roster utility which might make the decision a bit more complicated as the preseason progresses.

Clear frontrunner for No. 3 WR

It's still relatively early in the preseason, but Palmer has seemingly wrestled away the No. 3 wide receiver duties from Jalen Guyton. The second-year wideout was already playing with the first-stringers during offseason OTAs and has only solidified the rationale with a strong performance during training camp to date. While Guyton has reportedly also had a strong camp, it seems more likely the two-year starter might be relegated to sub packages within the offense whenever the Chargers need additional speed on the field, and that's not even a guarantee given DeAndre Carter has emerged as an intriguing pass catcher in his own right. The team neglected to outright name a starting slot receiver in the first "unofficial" depth chart release, but at this point, the job is clearly Palmer's to lose.
