WR - FA
After being forced into action due to a slew of injuries suffered by the Chargers pass-catchers, Javontee Herndon showed glimpses of promise. He looked comfortable in the offense and ran great routes in addition to serving as a return specialist for the Bolts.
In limited action, Javontee Herndon closed out the 2015 season with a 24/195/0 line. However, with Keenan Allen and Stevie Johnson returning to full health, his role will be minimal to start his 2016 campaign.
Midway through the game, Chargers return specialist and wide receiver Javontee Herndon was shaken up and left the game with an apparent chest injury. He did not return and finished with three receptions for 16 total yards.
As the Chargers injury-plagued roster continues to take hits, so does their fantasy value. However, Javontee Herndon hasn't yet hit the fantasy radar and doesn't look to anytime soon.
Forced into action by surmounting injuries, Javontee Herndon saw a healthy six total targets in a Week 15 victory over the Dolphins. Working as the third receiver, he finished the day with five catches for 35 yards.
Javontee Herndon is establishing himself as a valuable depth player in the Chargers' offense. However, his value is much less in fantasy terms. He is currently off the fantasy radar.
There weren't many bright spots that came in the Chargers' Week 14 loss to Kansas City. But if there was one on offense, it would have been Javontee Herndon. As a young, developmental talent, Herndon flashed great hands and continually made contested catches to move the chains. He totaled five receptions on seven targets for 47 yards and no touchdowns.
Despite Javontee Herndon showing promise as a developmental talent, he simply doesn't see the volume or red zone work that would boost him into fantasy relevance.
Javontee Herndon was held to just two targets, but caught both for 30 total yards. Filling in for Stevie Johnson after he departed with a groin injury, he couldn't find an ability to separate from a tenacious Denver defense.
Despite being pressed into a starting role due to injuries, Javontee Herndon is far from the fantasy radar currently. Until he shows a consistent rapport with Philip Rivers, he should be left on the waiver wire.
