Chargers WR Mike Williams earning time in offense

Philip Rivers isn't picky -- he just throws to the guy who's open.

But more often this season that guy is second-year pro Mike Williams, who continued his bounce-back year by finishing with four catches for 81 yards and two touchdowns in the Los Angeles Chargers' 35-23 loss to the Los Angeles Rams.

With speedster Travis Benjamin missing his second straight game due to a foot injury, Williams was targeted a team-high seven times, as Rivers looked to get the ball to his big-bodied target in the middle of the field.

According to NFL Next Gen stats, all three of Williams' scores this season have been on tight window throws (a yard or less of separation). A.J. Green (2) is the only other player with multiple tight window receiving touchdowns.

Fantasy Impact:

Rivers commented in the story he feels Williams is going to continue to trend up. "He's going to continue to be more of a factor for us," Rivers was quoted as saying.

Cardinals think WR Larry Fitzgerald will play Week 3

USA Today - [Full Article]

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald left Sunday’s 34-0 loss against the Los Angeles Rams with a hamstring injury. It was a decision made by coach Steve Wilks.

He said in his Monday meeting with the media that he has to “help Larry help himself,” and holding him out of part of the game against the Rams was doing that.

He anticipates, though, that Fitzgerald will play on Sunday against the Chicago Bears. “We all now that it’s going to be tough to keep Larry off the field.”

Fantasy Impact:

Fitz may be limited this week in practice but it sounds like he'll be good to go for Week 3.

After scoring three touchdowns in the first three quarters, Todd Gurley exited the game against the Arizona Cardinals. He was seen jogging to the locker room, and it was later determined that he was dealing with some cramping.

Fantasy Impact:

Gurley never returned but the Rams had a big lead and the game was never in doubt. He should be good to go for Week 3.
