Will Los Angeles Chargers Donald Parham Jr. Be A TE1 By The End of the 2022 NFL Season
Until he tweaked his hamstring reports were that Donald Parham Jr. was having a great camp.
Somewhat of a physical phenom Parham is entering his 3rd year with the Bolts. He was a product of a small school that lacked competition. So he went to the XFL… and dominated.
In 2021, Parham had 20 receptions on 27 targets for 190 yards and 3 TDs.
Depending on your leagues scoring it may be different but in my dynasty league our TE12 was Hunter Henry. He logged 50 receptions on 75 targets for 603 yards and 9 TDs.
In 2021, Justin Herbert attempted 672 passes for 5014 yards and 38 TDs.
In 2022, Herbert will have a very nice selection of weapons in Keenan Allen, Mike Williams, Joshua Palmer, Austin Ekeler, Donald Parham Jr., and Gerald Everett.
Yahoo currently projects Herbert to target his tight ends 124 times in 2022, with 70 of those going to Gerald Everett and 51 going to Parham. If everything reported from camp is true I’d expect those numbers to be the other way around when all is said and done.
I own Parham in my dynasty league and if he’s available in yours definitely pick him up and stash him right now. In redraft leagues I think he’s worth a back of roster stash if you want to buy the option on him. I also have Kelce and Waller as my TE1 and TE2, so I like buying into the tight ends in this division.
While it might not be the most likely outcome due to so many good targets in LA, Parham is loaded with potential and if he can become Herbert’s ‘Kelce’ he will definitely flirt with TE1 numbers this year.
I’m not so sure he gets there in 2022, though.
Tell me what you think. Where will Donald Parham Jr. finish in 2022?
