From ballyhooed prospects to established veterans, several San Diego Chargers have been anything but predictable this offseason.
Each of their performances in Week 3 of the preseason versus the San Francisco 49ers could be a glimpse into their NFL futures—either making the leap to stardom or being ousted from San Diego’s roster before the regular season begins.
Four Chargers’ stocks are up. Playing well is the most obvious indicator of a rising stock—Corey Liuget can attest to this. Improved health or an increase in snaps also gives players the opportunity to showcase their skills, and consequently an improved stock.
On the other hand, four Chargers’ stocks are down. We’ll limit the criteria of a falling stock to on-field performance. Backups and bubble players are especially vulnerable to declining stocks—guys like Tevin Reese need to turn around their preseasons before it’s too late.
With the most important week of the preseason in the books, let’s look at the stock reports of eight Chargers players.
