Chargers WR Mike Williams earning time in offense

Eagles.com - [Full Article]

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.

Scouting Report

Week 14 at Kansas City Chiefs (Thursday)

In a huge divisional showdown on Thursday night, the Chargers and Chiefs have the second highest over/under on the Week 15 slate, with Los Angeles still with an above average 24.75 implied total despite being road underdogs. Philip Rivers streak of multiple touchdowns in every game this season came to an end last week, surprisingly against Cincinnati. Nevertheless, the Chiefs rank just 31st in aFPA to QBs. Rivers had his best fantasy day of the season in Week 1 against this defense and should return to QB1 numbers in Week 15.
