2019 Fantasy Outlook
A torn labrum in Tillery's shoulder isn't expected to keep the 28th overall selection in the 2019 NFL Draft off the field for long. Out of the gate, Tillery is expected to serve as an interior pass rusher for the Chargers, likely splitting time with Justin Jones, Brandon Mebane and Isaac Rochell. Down the road, however, it's possible the 22-year-old could be used more as an edge rusher if Melvin Ingram becomes a cap causality in 2020. Read Past Outlooks
