The Chargers parted ways with Roscoe Parrish in the first wave of roster cuts. We break down the fantasy implications.
Roscoe Parrish was released from the San Diego Chargers on Monday after a poor preseason showing. The 30-year-old receiver missed nearly the entire 2011 season after suffering an ankle injury with the Buffalo Bills, and now he will be searching for another new team for 2012.
Analysis: Parrish was expected to make the final 53-man roster for the Chargers this season, but the franchise chose to go another route. San Diego has a decent amount of receivers on the roster, and several players vying for the return game responsibilities. Parrish saw action returning kicks throughout the preseason, but he didn't do anything to separate himself from the group. Eddie Royal's stock now goes up with Parrish's departure. He will backup Robert Meachem and Malcom Floyd heading into the regular season. Philip Rivers still hasn't found a favorite receiver, so keep an eye on this group for now.
