Another offensive player who needs to show a lot more to warrant a roster spot is wide receiver Simi Fehoko. After being signed by the Bolts during the 2023 campaign after being released by the Dallas Cowboys, Fehoko saw some action late in the season following Mike Williams' season-ending injury.

The former Stanford man appeared in six games for the Chargers, catching a nine-yard touchdown. This was only enough to get him a reserve/future contract this offseason and he will look to compete for a roster spot during training camp.

However, Fehoko has an uphill battle for a spot in the rotation. The Chargers drafted Ladd McConkey in the second round, and Brenden Rice in the seventh round. They also signed talented pass-catcher DJ Chark in free agency.

The Chargers' receiver corps may be bereft of elite playmaking talent but it has significant depth. Josh Palmer, Quentin Johnston, Chark, and McConkey will get the majority of the snaps next season with Derius Davis, Brenden Rice, and Cornelius Johnson rounding out the rotation. It is hard to see how Fehoko makes the final roster, let alone crack the rotation.
