John Ross. 14. player. 13. . WR. Washington

Philip Rivers and the San Diego Chargers are having quite an interesting season, as they have literally been in every game they have played in 2016. A couple of late-game collapses have them at the bottom of the AFC West, though they have proven they can play with anybody. Rivers continues to be one of the better signal-callers in the AFC, and the Chargers should look to get him some help next April.

Starting wide receiver Keenan Allen blew out his knee in Week 1 against the Kansas City Chiefs, and will be out the entire year. With an injury like he sustained, there is no telling how he will come back next season. He has dealt with injuries his entire career, and though extremely talented, the Chargers cannot go into another season with him as their top option on the outside.

Tyrell Williams and Travis Benjamin have filled in nicely in Allen’s absence, but they could certainly use another playmaker at the position. Washington wideout John Ross is a can’t-miss prospect, and would fit nicely into the Chargers run-first offense. Running back Melvin Gordon is rounding into a solid back, and if the Bolts can add another weapon on the outside, they should once again be one of the top offensive units in the AFC.
