Los Angeles Chargers WR Quentin Johnston is a "great worker" and a player that the team believes is "going to launch" in 2024, according to general manager Joe Hortiz on The Up & Adams podcast on Wednesday, May 15. "Quentin was a player we liked in Baltimore as well last year - a player that I liked. When you look at him, when he was coming out of college, he was an elite size/speed athlete. And you saw some rawness to his game, but you also saw the ability, for as big as he is, (6-foot-3), I think, and 220 pounds, you watch him drop his weight, getting in and out of breaks, come to balance at the top of the route, get out quickly. He can do some rare things for a player his size. (Coach) Jim (Harbaugh) was on the other sideline in one of his better games (in college), and so we've all seen it. We believe in it. He's a great kid, he's a great worker. Everyone here has a high opinion of him. I believe he's really going to launch. I really do. His skill set is great. We're (going to) work with him, make him better and better," Hortiz told Adams.
Huddle Up: While Johnston may end up being a bust, it is important to remember that he was easily the most raw receiver of the four first-round picks at the position last season. With Keenan Allen and Mike Williams no longer on the roster, Johnston and rookie Ladd McConkey will be given every chance to push for 80 to 100 targets apiece. It is much too early to completely bail on Johnston, who has more than enough talent to be a great value in the later rounds if the new coaching staff is able to work their magic with him.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Joshua Palmer and Quentin Johnston should both be able to make jumps in their play next season, according to general manager Joe Hortiz.
Huddle Up: Palmer and Johnston should both be top three receivers for the Chargers next season and likely will have big roles in the passing game. Palmer has been productive in the past and could be a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver in fantasy leagues, while Johnston may be a No. 4 or No. 5 receiver.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Quentin Johnston believes he's "due for a breakout" in 2024, he told reporters on Wednesday, Jan. 31.
Huddle Up: The No. 21 overall pick in 2023, Johnston had a quiet rookie season and failed to do much, even when both Keenan Allen and Mike Williams were out of the lineup. However, he was forced to catch passes from Easton Stick down the stretch, which certainly didn't help matters. His ability to have a breakout year in 2024 will depend on what happens with Allen and Williams, both of whom are cut candidates. If both stay, their presence will almost certainly hinder his production, assuming they can stay healthy, something Williams has been incapable of doing. If one or both leave, Johnston could become the No. 2 option, at worst, for star quarterback Justin Herbert. As things stand now, Johnston should be held in dynasty formats but he's nothing more than a late-round dart throw in re-draft leagues until one of the aforementioned veterans are cut loose.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Quentin Johnston caught two passes for 23 yards and a touchdown in LA's 63-21 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders on Thursday, Dec. 14. He was targeted three times.
Huddle Up: The rookie has seen a bit of an uptick in his production recently, including a career-high 91 yards in Week 14, and he scored his second touchdown of the season Thursday night. While his numbers still aren't great, Johnston at least looks like someone that might produce in the right situation over the final three games.
