NFL: Los Angeles Chargers at Arizona Cardinals Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

NFL receiving corps rankings: All 32 teams entering 2018 - Michael Renner
Los Angeles would have been much higher prior to the injury of Hunter Henry, but their top-10 ranking still reflects the talent they’ve accrued at receiver. When healthy, Keenan Allen is one of the most unguardable receivers one-on-one. His 89.1 overall grade last year was the fifth best at the position. This unit will need Mike Williams to live up to his draft status in Year 2 though. Williams played all of 234 snaps last year due to injury.

Chargers’ Preseason Week 1 player of the game: Geremy Davis - Travis Wakeman
In addition to Davis, Artavis Scott also had a nice night, catching five passes for 44 yards. But it was Davis and his circus catch that helped earn him our player of the game honors.

2018 Projected Three-Down Linebackers - Mike Woellert
The Chargers are another defense with a muddled LB group. As of now, I'd project Denzel Perryman and Jatavis Brown as the linebackers who'll get the majorty of the snaps. Initial charts showing Perryman manning the middle and Brown at weak-side.

ReFocused, NFL Preseason Week 1: Los Angeles Chargers , Arizona Cardinals - PFF Analysis Team
It was largely a stagnant performance from the Chargers offense, but wide receiver Geremy Davis was one standout, as he showed on his spectacular 47-yard touchdown grab in the third quarter. That type of athleticism and concentration to go up and make a play on the ball with a defensive back draped all over you is quite impressive.

Chargers Notes: Gates, Jones, Smith, Nwosu - Andrew Ortenberg
Gates isn’t interested in playing for any other team, and the two sides had talks right after Henry went down. Despite there still being no deal in place with the preseason already underway, Chargers coach Anthony Lynn said “we’re still talking with him” after the Chargers’ game against the Cardinals, according to Eric D. Williams of ESPN. Williams points out that the Chargers tight ends accounted for five drops in the preseason opener, and Lynn said “we need to make more plays at the tight end position.” It all sounds like eventually something will get done with Gates.
