Top 10 Best Los Angeles Chargers Players Going Into the 2020 Season

This season will mark a transition for the Chargers in more ways than one. They’re moving into their new stadium with the Rams and they will have a changing of the guard at quarterback. The Phillip Rivers era is no more. I don’t expect this team to contend for playoffs but there’s still a lot of likable talent on this team
The Top Ten
1 Joey Bosa

Bosa is the best player on the Chargers. He improved further last year with a PFF grade of 89.6. Last year, he had very similar numbers to his 2017 season, and if he can stay healthy, the sky is really the limit for him in 2020.

Keeping him on the team should be a top priority for the Chargers.

2 Keenan Allen Keenan Alexander Allen is an American football wide receiver for the Los Angeles Chargers of the National Football League.

To me, he's their best weapon on offense, yet he still feels underrated compared to others around the league. He's been a beast the past few years, earning three straight Pro Bowl bids.

He's had over 1,190 receiving yards and six touchdowns. I'm sure he'll become to Taylor just like Sammy Watkins was in Buffalo.

3 Derwin James

Derwin James had a solid rookie season with 105 tackles, 3.5 sacks, and three interceptions. Then he missed almost all of last year with a stress fracture and wasn't ever 100 percent.

Now in his third year, I expect to see similar numbers to his 2018 season. He'll once again have a huge presence on that defense.

4 Austin Ekeler

With Melvin Gordon gone, Ekeler is now the top running back on the depth chart. He had 557 yards rushing and 993 yards receiving. He's a double-edged sword of sorts.

He can rush and receive, making him all the more dangerous.

5 Chris Harris Jr. Christopher Harris Jr. is an American football cornerback for the Los Angeles Chargers of the National Football League.

Chris Harris is a huge addition for LA. He's been a monster ever since his rookie season and has been named to The Hall of Fame's 2010's all-decade team. While he is near the end of his prime, this is a guy who will have an immediate impact.

6 Melvin Ingram Melvin Ingram is an American football linebacker for the San Diego Chargers of the National Football League.

Ingram, like Bosa, is capable of making big plays. He's a bit overshadowed by Bosa, but he's dangerous in his own way. He missed a few games last year but still had 48 tackles and seven sacks.

Definitely a disruptive force, he's made three consecutive Pro Bowls, so there's a lot to like about him. If he's healthy, he can dominate.

7 Bryan Bulaga

I have no idea why Green Bay chose to let Bulaga walk, but the LA Chargers certainly got a steal. Ten million dollars a year for arguably the best tackle on the market is a relatively small price to pay. Match-ups against the quality defensive lines of the Chiefs or Broncos will be made at least a little more manageable with Bulaga.

There's also his O line coach, James Campen, who was in Green Bay from 2007 to 2018. He can develop O lines, and he's familiar with Bulaga, which helps a lot.

When healthy, he is an elite right tackle.

8 Casey Hayward

Hayward has been one of the more reliable Chargers players. Last year he managed to still be productive. Losing guys like Derwin James and Adrian Phillips stings.

He had a bit of a down year on paper, but to be fair, he had to go up against guys like Deandre Hopkins and Sammy Watkins.

9 Tyrod Taylor

To me, he's a solid QB. I expect him to start over Justin Herbert unless an injury decimates his season. It's been a few years, but he was a serviceable QB in Buffalo.

He might be a little rusty, but once he gets back into the swing of the starting gig, he's got some talent around him to thrive.

10 Hunter Henry

He missed the entire 2018 season, but last year he made up for it with 652 yards and five touchdowns. He was one of Phillip Rivers' favorite weapons and for good reason.

He's almost underrated in a sense. If he can stay healthy, he could be higher on the list.
