Donald Parham Jr.
TE - LAC
Week 3 Outlook
Donald Parham is set for a bigger role in the Los Angeles Chargers' offense, according to the Orange County Register's Gilbert Manzano.
Manzano wrote: Parham’s role will likely expand this season because the 6-foot-8 tight end has done a lot of running with the ball in his hands through the first seven practices of training camp. He’s gone from just seeing jump balls in the end zone as a mismatch nightmare to a yards-after-catch playmaker for quarterback Justin Herbert. Manzano added: Parham said he didn’t like the way he finished his first season with the Chargers last year and focused this offseason on building lower body strength and improving his knee movements. That has led to Parham improving as a route runner and getting open in space. Parham also credited his improvements to the chemistry he built with Herbert in the offseason. Parham Jr. totaled 10 receptions on 20 targets for 159 yards and three touchdowns last season. Manzano noted that fellow TE Jared Cook is a favorite target of Herbert thus far in training camp as well.
Chargers TE Donald Parham Jr. caught three passes for 37 yards and a touchdown in the Chargers' 38-21 win over the Chiefs.
Parham was a recommended DFS play with Hunter Henry out of commission and he came through for fantasy managers. He'll end his second season with 10 receptions for 159 yards and three touchdowns in 13 games.
XFL TE Donald Parham is signing a deal with the Chargers.
Sources say that Parham had offers from five other teams, but ultimately decided to sign with the Chargers. He played last year for the Dallas Renegades, catching 24 balls on 43 targets for 307 yards and four TDs. The 6’8” TE will look to provide depth at the position behind Hunter Henry, and could be used in red zone packages with his elite size.
