Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Artavis Scott continues to shine as he works to land a spot in the team's receiving corps. Scott hauled in the longest pass of the game when he snagged a throw from Cardale Jones late in the second quarter. A juke around the first defender to reach him gave him some space and let him stretch it out to a total of 31 yards. Scott would end up grabbing all four passes sent his way, totaling up 66 yards in the process. Scott's battle to be the team's fourth receiver hit a speed bump this week when they re-signed former Charger Dontrelle Inman, but he's still been the most impressive new wideout in camp. He looks destined to make the roster, and if he does, he could see serious opportunities early in the season due to injuries and a holdout.
Though he didn't get a touchdown, Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Artavis Scott led the team in receiving yards on Sunday when facing the Saints. Scott also had the longest gain of the day when he hauled in a 31-yard pass from backup quarterback Easton Stick in the final minute of the game. Scott is one of a few wide receivers battling to be the team's fourth or fifth option on the outside, and he looks to be in the thick of the fight. It's not clear yet who will take the spots, but Scott should be considered one of the strongest competitors for the position. If he can make the squad, he could find himself getting a lot of looks with a set of injury-prone receivers in front of him.
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Artavis Scott has been getting a lot of talk at training camp so far as he competes to be the No. 4 wide receiver on the squad. Scott was an undrafted free agent out of Clemson in 2017, and he won a spot on the practice squad his first year. After a nasty ankle injury in the final preseason game cost him the entire 2018 season, Scott is back again. He's already gotten a specific mention from head coach Anthony Lynn, and reporters have made mention of meticulous route-running, one of the weak points of his game according to scouts in 2017. With injury-prone receivers populating the top three spots in LA's pecking order, Scott could find himself on the field on Sundays quite often this year.
