#11 Stevie Johnson
Aug 30: Johnson caught four passes (six targets) for 63 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Seahawks. Though he's still No. 3 on the depth chart, Johnson should benefit significantly from his improved team context, after spending a year with the run-heavy 49ers. Not only do the Chargers make heavy use of three-wide formations, but also TE Antonio Gates is suspended for the first four games, likely freeing up some extra snaps and targets for Johnson out of the slot. Eddie Royal, the Chargers' slot receiver last season, put up a 62-778-7 receiving line on 91 targets, even with Gates playing a full 16 games.
