LAC WR Mike Williams - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 at Kansas City Chiefs
In Week 16, Williams finished with three receptions on four targets for 51 scoreless yards, 52 air yards, 10% of the team targets, and 25% of the team air yards.

The Chargers have been out of the playoff picture for quite some time. However, at the time of writing this, the Chargers are likely to play their starters because this could be Rivers’ last game as a Charger.

Williams is in a difficult matchup on the road and the Chargers are only implied for 18.25 points. Kansas City is the third-best defense against wide receivers, as shown by our signature schedule-adjusted fantasy points allowed metric. 4for4 rankings expert, John Paulsen, has Williams ranked as a mid half PPR WR3. Williams was the beneficiary of a two-yard touchdown pass in Week 15 but Melvin Gordon stole the short-yardage usage in the red zone with two 1-yard touchdown runs in Week 16.

LAC WR Mike Williams - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 vs. Oakland Raiders
Mike Williams didn't score a touchdown in his first 11 games but has scored in back-to-back weeks. In Week 15, he played 84% of snaps, finished with four receptions on nine targets for 71 yards, one touchdown, 175 air yards, 23% of the team targets, and 52% of the team air yards.

Oakland’s defense is eleventh worst against wide receivers, per our signature schedule-adjusted fantasy points allowed metric. 4for4 rankings expert, John Paulsen, has Williams ranked as a high-end half PPR WR3. Williams is a huge target in the red zone and it was encouraging to see the Chargers finally utilize his size and athletic ability with a two-yard touchdown pass against a smaller defender. Williams is always a threat to catch deep ballers but his floor would receive a boost if the Chargers stick to their game plan from last week to create mismatches with Williams inside the five-yard line.

LAC WR Mike Williams - Week 15 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 15 vs. Minnesota Vikings
The streak is finally over! Mike Williams scored his first touchdown of the season. In Week 14, he played 71% of snaps, finished with two receptions on three targets for 63 yards, one touchdown, 71 air yards, 11% of the team targets, and 27% of the team air yards.

The blueprint to beating the Vikings defense is through the passing game. They are the fourth-worst defense against wide receivers but eighteenth best against running backs, as shown by our signature schedule-adjusted fantasy points allowed metric. 4for4’s rankings expert, John Paulsen, has Allen ranked as a low-end half PPR WR3. Williams continues to be a boom or bust WR3 but should benefit from a narrow passing attack alongside Keenan Allen and Hunter Henry. These three receiving threats accounted for 93% of the team targets in Week 14.

LAC WR Mike Williams - Week 14 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 at Jacksonville Jaguars
It seems impossible but Mike Williams still hasn’t scored a touchdown. Per Adam Levitan, Williams scored 10 TDs on 66 targets last year but hasn’t scored on 69 targets this year.

The Jaguars are the 12-best defense against wide receivers, as shown by our signature schedule-adjusted fantasy points allowed metric. 4for4’s rankings expert, John Paulsen, has Williams ranked as a mid-range half PPR WR4.

LAC WR Mike Williams - Week 13 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 13 at Denver Broncos
The Chargers had a bye in Week 12.

Williams hasn’t scored a touchdown all season and it looks like the streak might continue against a stingy Broncos secondary. They are 10th against wide receivers, as shown by our signature schedule-adjusted fantasy points allowed metric. Points might be limited in this game because it has the second-lowest over/under (38.5) of the week. 4for4 rankings expert, John Paulsen, has Williams ranked as a low-end half PPR WR4.

LAC WR Mike Williams - Week 11 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 11 vs. Kansas City Chiefs (Mexico City)
Another game completed, another scoreless week for Mike Williams. In Week 10, he finished with two receptions on three targets, for 55 yards, 81 air yards, 10% of the team targets, 20% of the team air yards, and finished as the half PPR WR40.

The Chiefs defense is seventh-best against wide receivers, as shown by our signature schedule-adjusted fantasy points allowed metric. With the assumption of rational coaching, the Chargers will try to beat the Chiefs with the running game. However, if the Chargers are down multiple touchdowns early, they might be forced to abandon their game plan and turn Philip Rivers loose in the passing game. This game has the highest over/under (52.5) of the week. 4for4 rankings expert, John Paulsen, has Williams ranked as a low-end half PPR WR3.

LAC WR Mike Williams - Week 10 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10 at Oakland Raiders
Mike Williams still hasn’t scored a touchdown but he finished with over 100 yards for the first time this season. In Week 9, he appeared on Josh Hermsmeyer’s buy low air yards model for the fourth consecutive week and finished with three receptions on four targets, for 111 yards, 47 air yards, 14% of the team targets, 21% of the team air yards, and finished as the half PPR WR21.

Oakland is the third-worst defense against wide receivers, as shown by our signature schedule-adjusted fantasy points allowed metric. As mentioned before, Williams has been a staple on Hermsmeyer’s buy low air yards model but he is not on the list this week. Positive touchdown regression should hit at some point so cross your fingers it is this week against a poor secondary. 4for4 rankings expert John Paulsen has Williams ranked as a low-end half PPR WR2.
