Blog Picks (6-6-1)
As Monday night football approaches, the stage is set for a potentially electrifying moment in the Chargers’ passing game. With the unfortunate news of star wide receiver Mike Williams being sidelined for the remainder of the season and Josh Palmer nursing a nagging groin injury, it’s time for another player to step up and shine. That player could very well be Quentin Johnston, who seems poised for a breakout season.
In Week 4, during the game when Williams was sidelined just before the team’s bye week, Johnston’s route participation saw a significant spike. It skyrocketed from a mere 26% in the previous week to nearly 70%. This substantial increase in his role within the offense is a clear indication that the Chargers’ coaching staff sees something special in Johnston, and they are keen on unleashing his potential.
Now, let’s take a look at their upcoming opponent, the Dallas Cowboys. The Cowboys’ defense has shown a vulnerability in their pass coverage, having allowed at least two wide receivers to exceed this particular receiving total in each of their last three games. This presents an enticing opportunity for the Chargers’ passing game, with both Keenan Allen and Quentin Johnston being excellent candidates to capitalize on this weakness.
Johnston might just be the spark that ignites the Chargers to new heights. I’ll Take My Chances with the OVER 31.5 Yards
