Week 5 vs. San Francisco 49ers
Maxx Williams has been on an every-other-week cycle so far this season, with double-digit fantasy points in Week 2 and last week against the Rams, and terrible games in between. It’s good to see him rack up 15 targets over his past three games, however, and fantasy managers should consider rostering him if they need help at the position, given the potential in this high-powered offense. Hopefully, he’ll even out his production a bit.
This week, Williams faces a 49ers defense that ranks sixth in aFPA to opposing tight ends, so it’s not the best time to gamble on him. Plus, he produced last week, so it looks like an off-week for him – I’m mostly joking. Still, take a wait-and-see approach with him. Eyes perked in his direction, but not setting him in lineups just yet.
