2019 Outlook
Depth Chart
After a horrible, borderline embarrassing rookie season where he was barely even able to get on the field, former top 10 NFL Draft pick Mike Williams broke out in 2018 and is set to see a significant playing time increase in his third season. Williams caught 43 passes for 664 yards and a whopping 10 touchdowns, giving him one of the highest touchdown-to-reception totals that we've ever seen. He scored a touchdown on 15.2% of his targets, which was better than any other player in the entire league.

Obviously fantasy owners should not be expecting or even hoping for Williams to sustain his ridiculous pace of a touchdown every 4.4 receptions, but that doesn't necessarily mean that his touchdown totals will see a significant drop off - or even a drop off at all. The way that Williams can make up for this almost certain regression in efficiency would be additional targets coming his way. With Tyrell Williams now out of the picture, Mike Williams should be on the field substantially more this season which should translate to a serious uptick in targets. Sure, he won't compete with Keenan Allen to lead the team in targets, but an 85-to-100 target season is certainly not out of the question, given that he saw 66 targets in 2018 despite only starting in five games.

With the Chargers pass catching depth chart behind Allen, Williams and Henry being as thin as it is, Williams has a real chance to produce big numbers for fantasy owners this season in what should be an important role in this Los Angeles offense.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Mike Williams expected to be limited
Red-zone situations
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Sep 15, 7:00 am

Chargers’ WR Mike Williams, listed as questionable for Sunday due to a knee injury, showed improvement later in the week in practice and is likely to be used Sunday in red-zone situations, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Ian Rapoport's report on Williams suggested he is a gametime decision. If he does avoid the inactive list, it sounds he will be limited in the game. Travis Benjamin could see a few extra targets in a game expected to be on the slower side between the Chargers and Lions.


Injury Mike Williams a gametime decision
Listed as questionable
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Sep 13, 2:22 pm

Chargers HC Anthony Lynn said Mike Williams (knee) will be a game-time decision. "I just need to see that he can go out and play, and not hurt himself," Lynn said. "He has a couple more days, so we'll go day by day." (Eric Williams on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Williams injured his knee in Week 1 and missed practice Wednesday and Thursday this week. Even if he plays, it will be hard to trust Williams in fantasy lineups as he could be limited. The Chargers will be leaning on Keenan Allen and Austin Ekeler on offense this week with Travis Benjamin an Dontrelle Inman seeing increased roles.

Knee injury

Anthony Lynn was asked if he's concerned about Mike Williams' availability for Sunday: “Absolutely. We signed a wide receiver (Anthony Johnson). Just in case. Just don’t know.” (Gilbert Manzano on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Williams has did not practice Wednesday or Thursday this week and the Chargers went out and added a receiver, so their fear is real. If Williams sits, expect a heavy dose of Keenan Allen and Austin Ekeler in the passing game. Travis Benjamin may also be worth a look as a high-upside play in deeper leagues.
