Draft note
by John Paulsen
Williams finished his second season with 43-664-10, which made him the No. 24 fantasy receiver in half-PPR formats thanks in large part to the 10 touchdowns. He managed that production on just 4.1 targets per game, and his usage is bound to rise with the departure of Tyrell Williams, who posted 41-653-5 on 4.0 targets per game. Even if Williams’ FP/T regresses to the average of both players, and he sees half of Tyrell’s targets, he’s looking at a fantasy finish in the teens.

LAC WR Mike Williams - 2019 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
After an injury-plagued rookie year, Mike Williams broke through in a major way in 2018. His 11 total touchdowns were the fourth most by an NFL wideout and he authored a performance for the ages in Week 15 against division rival Kansas City, hauling in a career-high seven catches for 76 yards and two touchdowns along with a touchdown run and the game-winning two-point conversion. Overall, he caught 43 passes for 664 yards (in addition to his 10 receiving TDs) and the Chargers were thrilled with their young wideout's progress. "His route running, his speed, his quickness and his awareness -- his toughness to go across the middle and make tough catches on third down," GM Tom Telesco said in highlighting the growth. "But we're also in an offense where we have a lot of guys to get the football to, so he didn't have 80, 90 or 100 catches, but he has that type of ability. With the other guys we have, the opportunities he had, he really took advantage of it. It's great to see."

Fantasy Downside
Lack of consistent opportunities in an offense in which Keenan Allen got more than double Williams' targets last season is an issue that must change.

2019 Bottom Line
The good news? We expect the workload to increase as the departure of Tyrell Williams should give Mike the boost in targets that will allow him to be more than a touchdown-dependent spot play for fantasy owners this season. Playing with a consistently high-end QB in Philip Rivers also works in Williams’ favor.
