Draft note
by John Paulsen
Williams was the No. 45 receiver last season. He had the eighth-highest average depth of target (15.7) on targets from Justin Herbert, which was actually down from the 18.3 that he posted the year before. New OC Joe Lombardi said that Williams will play the “X” receiver spot in his offense, which is where Michael Thomas played while Lombardi was in New Orleans. Lombardi said that he would “bet on nice numbers” from Williams in 2021. Keenan Allen is a superior receiver–and Williams is no Michael Thomas–so it’s hard to believe that Lombardi would force targets to the less efficient Williams, though that seems to be what Lombardi is saying. Williams ADP is creeping into the seventh round, which seems a little pricey given his recent track record. His positional ADP (WR40) is reasonable.

LAC WR Mike Williams - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 vs. Cowboys
The workload that Mike Williams saw in Week 1 will make for encouraging reading if this trend continues. Williams saw the same number of targets as Keenan Allen, with Williams catching eight of his 12 looks for 82 yards and a touchdown. Williams has just a single game in his career in which he commanded more targets than he did last week. The Cowboys leaked 226 receiving yards to the Buccaneers' secondary wide receivers last week, and this is a massive reason why Williams and the Chargers WRs have our the best matchup in the entire league this week.
