News: 2 days agoPalmer failed to catch his only target in Sunday's 41-22 win over the Bengals.

Spin: Palmer saw a slip in snap time as Mike Williams and Jalen Guyton took charge. The rookie's lone target was simply a dropped deep pass which slipped off his hands and somehow landed in the cornerback's arm for Justin Herbert's lone interception. In the previous five games, the fourth-string wide receiver had at least one catch with 17-plus yards, but with a significant lead for most of the afternoon Palmer wasn't needed. Facing the Giants in the upcoming week, the rookie might have an impact with Keenan Allen placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday.

ESPN Fantasy Projection: The Chargers selected Palmer in the third round of April's draft. The Tennessee product is a 6-foot-2, 210-pound receiver who lived on hook and vert routes (55% of his tree) and saw a lot of deep targets (16.0 aDOT) during his past three seasons at Tennessee. Palmer had to deal with shaky QB play (31% of targets were uncatchable), but did well to overcome that with reliable hands (four drops on 163 targets). He's not a threat to Keenan Allen or Mike Williams in the short term, but could overtake Jalen Guyton for No. 3 duties very quickly. That would make him a fantasy sleeper considering how good Justin Herbert looked as a rookie. Palmer makes for a fine later flier in deeper leagues.
