|A perennial fantasy disappointment since his absurd touchdown rate in 2018, Mike Williams again struggled to find consistency in 2020, catching just 48 passes on the season. He is still one of the best yards per reception producers in the league, but the fact that he's averaging just three catches per game makes it very difficult to trust him for fantasy, especially when he's only provided seven total touchdowns over his past two seasons despite playing in 30 games.
Still, Williams finds himself in a good spot to see plenty of targets again this season. The Chargers' wide receiver group lacks proven contributors aside from Keenan Allen and they even moved on from tight end Hunter Henry this offseason. Williams should be on the field in most situations and he remains one of the league's most spectacular jump ball receivers. Assuming the Chargers will continue to be an offense on the rise, Williams will have opportunities to score this season. Beyond that, he'd potentially see a huge increase in targets in the scenario that Allen were to go down with an injury, as he has a few times throughout his career.
He's not much more than a lottery ticket player to look at deep in your draft, but Williams does have some potential if things break his way.

FFToday's Take: With Williams missing practice all week this is a tough call for fantasy owners if he is active. Williams leads all receivers with 6 touchdowns.

FFToday's Take: Head coach Brandon Staley said Williams has some swelling in his knee earlier in the week and that he will be a gametime decision. With a bye coming up in Week 7, the Chargers may take some caution and sit Williams this week. Josh Palmer and Jalen Guyton could see some increased work.
