Chargers working out WR Austin Pettis to bolster banged up depth chart

After losing Keenan Allen to a season-ending kidney injury, the Chargers' wide receiver group was beginning to look a lot weaker. That devastating blow was followed up by a torn labrum for Malcom Floyd, Dontrelle Inman being carted off on a back-board, and Stevie Johnson tweaking his groin. The desperate Chargers will work out Austin Pettis to potentially bolster their receiving corps.

Fantasy Impact

Pettis, who spent the off-season with the Chargers, will be far from the fantasy radar even if signed. For a guy who didn't crack the final 53, this is a real life desperation move by the Bolts.

Austin Pettis waived by the Chargers

The San Diego Chargers have released WR Austin Pettis. A free agent signing from early this spring, Pettis just couldn't edge his way into a crowded position group.

Fantasy Impact

He could very well latch on with a receiver needy team, but likely won't be a fantasy factor anywhere in the near future.

Austin Pettis has a quiet night versus Seattle

Despite being targeted four times, Austin Pettis had a relatively quiet night against the Seahawks as he caught just one pass for two yards. Pettis has been consistently making plays throughout camp and should have a place on this team.

Fantasy Impact

Pettis should settle in on the depth chart as the team's fifth receiver behind Keenan Allen, Malcom Floyd, Stevie Johnson, and Jacoby Jones. However, there simply will not be enough targets to go around. He is off the fantasy radar.

Austin Pettis creeping up the San Diego depth chart

Austin Pettis has apparently took a leap in the Chargers depth chart as he is now listed as the team's second slot receiver behind Stevie Johnson. He has made impressive catches throughout camp and has been efficient in redzone targets. When asked about Pettis, here's what quarterback Philip Rivers had to say. "Austin’s done a nice job. I haven’t been in there with him much, but I think what stands out to me from him is you can tell he’s played in this league, and made plays in this league.He shows up on the tape when you’re going back through the film on one-on-ones and things. He’s a guy that’s physical and really has picked up the offense well."

Fantasy Impact

The Chargers are going to throw the ball often. However, despite the total team targets being high, it is going to be tough trying to steal reps away from Malcom Floyd, Keenan Allen, and Stevie Johnson. At this point, the receiving group is just too crowded for him to make a fantasy impact.

Austin Pettis has a productive night versus Arizona

Running with the third-string offense, Austin Pettis hauled in all 4 of his targets for 30 yards against the Cardinals. He helped move the chains late in the game as the Chargers fought their way into scoring position.

Fantasy Impact

Pettis is still not a lock to make the Chargers final roster, but is surely making use of his opportunities. If he doesn't serve a role on this offense, a receiver needy team like Carolina could benefit from his veteran presence.
