Chargers’ best and worst PFF grades entering Week 9

Is losing a starter all that bad when he’s been one of the worst defenders in the NFL this season?

NFL: Seattle Seahawks at Los Angeles Chargers Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

With the Chargers coming off of the bye week, we don’t have new grades to show you all but it’s not a bad time to check in on who the best and worst-graded players have been through the first seven games of the regular season.

For the most part, the stars you’d expect to shine all season long have been doing just that. On the other hand, a couple starting defenders — including one that is already done of the season — make up some of the worst-graded players on the entire team.

That’s a very tough look, especially given the plethora of injuries on top of it.

Let’s go ahead and take a look at who has been meeting expectations and which players have fallen dreadfully short.
