The Los Angeles Chargers have had a lot to be disappointed about since moving cities in 2017. They've made the playoffs just once in four seasons since relocating and have a combined 33-31 record during that span. Los Angeles will look to put its playoff woes in the rearview mirror in 2021 and their core of wide receivers can help them accomplish that goal.

Here's a look at the Chargers' updated WR depth chart for 2021.

Chargers WR Depth Chart 2021

1. Keenan Allen

Nobody needs to be convinced that Keenan Allen is the Chargers' No. 1 wide receiver once again. The four-time Pro-Bowler has been a stud since joining the organization as a third-round pick in 2013. Allen suited up in 14 games for Los Angeles last season, leading the team in receptions (100), receiving yards (992) and touchdowns (8). Unless someone else really breaks out, expect more of the same from him in 2021.

2. Mike Williams

Mike Williams will enter the 2021 NFL season looking to bounce back following last year's disappointing performance. While having 756 receiving yards is respectable, it's a bit of a decrease from the 1,001 he had in 2019. Considering how the Chargers lack an abundance of receiving options, Williams will have the opportunity to re-assert himself as their No. 2 wideout.

3. Jalen Guyton

An undrafted wide receiver in 2019, Jalen Guyton surprised a lot of people last season in his first full year of NFL action. Guyton played in each of the Chargers' games, finishing the campaign with 511 receiving yards and 3 TDs.

4. Tyron Johnson

Tyron Johnson will enter his sophomore season with the Chargers looking to improve on his 398-yard, 3-touchdown rookie season performance. He also returned six kickoffs for Los Angeles in 2020, which means he could continue finding himself a role both on offense and special teams.

5. Josh Palmer

A third-round pick in 2021, Josh Palmer has a chance to make a name for himself in the Chargers' relatively weak group of pass-catchers. He suited up in 42 games for the Tennessee Volunteers over four seasons, catching 99 of his targets for 1,514 yards and 7 touchdowns.

6. Joe Reed

7. KJ Hill Jr.

8. Jason Moore

9. Austin Proehl

10. John Hurst
