Chargers re-signed WR Dontrelle Inman to a one-year, $2.746 million contract.
It's his second-round restricted tender. Forced into an expanded role due to Keenan Allen's 2016 ACL tear, Inman responded with a career-best 58-810-4 (14.0 YPR) receiving line. While Inman's role is unlikely to be nearly as voluminous this season, he is a versatile wideout capable of playing all three receiver spots and should be assured of a top-four spot in the rotation.

Chargers tendered restricted free agent Dontrelle Inman at the second-round level.

Inman nabbed 58 catches for 810 yards and four touchdowns last season while leading all Chargers receivers with 958 snaps. His role should be scaled back this year with Keenan Allen and Travis Benjamin expected to be at full health.
Mar 9 - 1:19 PM

Dontrelle Inman caught 4-of-5 targets for 51 yards Week 17 against the Chiefs.

Inman briefly left to be evaluated for a concussion, but he returned to finish out the game. Inman slowed down a bit over the final three weeks, but he still easily posted career-highs in targets (97), catches (58), yards (810), and touchdowns (4). Inman should be retained with an RFA tender this offseason, but he could return to a much smaller role with Keenan Allen and Travis Benjamin returning healthy and Tyrell Williams emerging as a great No. 2 option. Despite the breakout season, Inman will likely open 2017 in the same low-volume role he occupied early this season.
Jan 1 - 9:48 PM

Dontrelle Inman caught 3-of-10 targets for 44 yards in the Chargers' Week 16 loss to the Browns.

There were several missed connections between Philip Rivers and Inman on Sunday, a surprise for a duo that has been very efficient to this point. The Chargers will need more from Inman in Week 17 against Kansas City, which has been vulnerable to slot receivers for most of the year.

Dontrelle Inman caught 5-of-7 targets for 68 yards in the Chargers' Week 15 loss to the Raiders.

Inman's touchdown streak ended at three games, but he led the Chargers in catches and receiving yards and has emerged as San Diego's most reliable possession receiver. Inman primarily runs slot routes, where Week 16 opponent Cleveland has struggled all season. With a secure role, Inman will continue to be a good bet for five-plus-catch games for the rest of the season.

Dontrelle Inman caught 6-of-7 targets for 71 yards and a touchdown in the Chargers' Week 14 loss to the Panthers.

Inman was one of the only Bolts to show up in this one. The slot threat now has at least 40 yards in each of his past seven games, and made himself a weekly top-40 option. He'll be a legit WR3 against the Raiders' porous defense in Week 15.
Sun, Dec 11, 2016 06:28:00 PM

Dontrelle Inman caught 2-of-5 targets for 49 yards and touchdown in the Chargers' Week 13 loss to the Bucs.

Now playing ahead of Travis Benjamin, Inman starred early in this game with both of his catches coming in the first quarter, including a 35-yard touchdown where Bucs CB Alterraun Verner fell down on the play. Inman has moved past Travis Benjamin on the depth chart and is now San Diego's No. 2 wideout behind Tyrell Williams. Inman will be a fringe WR3/4 in Week 14 at Carolina.

Dontrelle Inman was cleared of a concussion after leaving late in the fourth quarter Week 12 against the Texans.

Inman was not placed in the protocol. It is a break for the Chargers, who also saw Tyrell Williams leave late with a shoulder injury. If Williams' injury turns out to be serious, Inman could end up serving as the No. 1 receiver over Travis Benjamin after exploding for 119 yards and a touchdown against the Texans. He should be a hot name on the wire this week.

Dontrelle Inman exited Week 12 against the Texans late in the fourth quarter with a possible concussion.

Inman had a great game before exiting, hauling in all six of his targets for 119 yards and a touchdown. He broke open what had been a limited passing game with a great double-move to shed Quintin Demps on a 52-yard touchdown in the second quarter. Inman stayed involved after the break, catching a perfectly thrown ball by Philip Rivers in the third quarter and converting a big third down in the fourth. With Tyrell Williams also leaving the game late with an arm injury, the Chargers could be in trouble at receiver next week against the Bucs.
Sun, Nov 27, 2016 04:08:00 PM

Dontrelle Inman caught 5-of-9 targets for 43 yards Week 10 against the Dolphins.

Inman had a solid if not spectacular day. He came up with several big grabs late in the game to keep drives alive, and he drew three penalties. Two of those converted third downs, and the other set San Diego up with first-and-goal at the one. Inman's fantasy value will depend on Travis Benjamin's (knee) health coming out of the bye. Even in a tough matchup, he will have WR3 appeal if Benjamin sits.
Sun, Nov 13, 2016 08:02:00 PM

Dontrelle Inman caught 6-of-9 targets for 56 yards in the Chargers' Week 9 win over the Titans.

The Chargers' slot man was forced to play a bigger role due to Travis Benjamin's recurring knee injury, which sidelined Benjamin in the second half. Inman isn't necessarily a big-play receiver, but he is a trusted target for Philip Rivers and will be worth WR3/flex consideration if Benjamin can't play against Miami in Week 10. Inman now has 55-plus yards in three straight games.
Sun, Nov 6, 2016 08:08:00 PM

Dontrelle Inman caught 4-of-7 targets for 72 yards in the Chargers' Week 8 loss to the Broncos.

Inman's highlight-reel catch went for 37 yards down the right sideline in a critical second-half moment. Inman hasn't put much in the box score on a consistent basis, but he logs a ton of snaps at slot receiver in San Diego's offense and can pop off at a moment's notice. Still, he will be a shaky WR3/flex option when the Chargers take on the Titans next.
Sun, Oct 30, 2016 08:08:00 PM

Dontrelle Inman caught 3-of-6 targets for 58 yards in the Chargers' Week 7 win over the Falcons.

The yards were Inman's second most of the season. Inman is a full-time member of the Chargers' pass catcher rotation, but it isn't translating to fantasy value. Even in PPR, he can't be trusted as a WR5.
Sun, Oct 23, 2016 08:15:00 PM

Dontrelle Inman caught his lone target for 11 yards in San Diego's Week 6 win over the Broncos.

The Chargers' slot man has two catches for 14 yards over his past two games. There will be the occasional blowup, but owners won't see them coming in standard leagues, where he's best left on the waiver wire.
Fri, Oct 14, 2016 12:48:00 AM

Dontrelle Inman caught 1-of-3 targets for three yards in the Chargers' Week 5 loss to the Raiders.

With Antonio Gates (hamstring) back in the lineup, Inman was a non-factor after his Week 4 explosion (7-120-1) against the pathetic Saints. It'll surely go down as Inman's best game of the season. Inman doesn't need to be rostered outside of 14-team PPR leagues. He's more of a WR5/6.
