LAC WR Mike Williams - Week 11 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 11 vs New York Jets

Williams had a dud of a game last week against Miami, as he caught two balls for 38 yards. After consecutive games of five receptions and at least 80 yards, Williams was stifled against the elite Miami secondary. The good thing, however, is that Williams still had five targets, something to keep in mind as he has a much easier matchup this week in the New York Jets.

New York is ranked 22nd in aFPA to WRs this season and has been prone to giving up big plays. With improved chemistry with Justin Herbert as the season has progressed, Williams is shaping up to be a boom-or-bust WR3 this week with the upside seeing him have a huge game.

LAC WR Mike Williams - Week 10 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10 at Miami

Williams caught five receptions for 81 yards last week against the Raiders in yet another strong game for the young WR. Williams almost had the game-winning touchdown on a spectacular play that saw him hit the found very hard and left him visibly shaken up. What’s important about Williams’ performance was his seven targets after seeing eight targets the week prior. While Keenan Allen has been hogging most of the targets, Williams hadn’t seen more than two a game with Justin Herbert under center, but that seems to be changing now as the Charger offense continues to grow under its rookie signal-caller.

In a good matchup against the Dolphins, Williams should be viewed as WR3 as he and Herbert’s chemistry continue to grow.

LAC WR Mike Williams - Week 9 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 9 vs Las Vegas

Williams finally had a productive game with Herbert under center and a healthy Keenan Allen, as it was the second time this season he’s had more than two targets with Herbert. Williams was targeted eight times last week, which he turned into five receptions for 99 yards and one touchdown. The bulk of Williams’ production came in the second half, as the team went away from Allen and ultimately blew a 24-3 lead against Denver. This performance is encouraging for Williams as we now know he’s capable of having a big game in the current offense. Heading into a winnable matchup against the Raiders, Williams is the ultimate boom-or-bust WR3 in this one.

LAC WR Mike Williams - Week 8 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 8 at Denver

Williams had his worst game this season, as he only caught one of his three targets for four yards last week against Jacksonville. In a game in which Justin Herbert threw for a career-high 347 yards, for Williams to do next to nothing is very disappointing. It is becoming increasingly clear that Williams is an afterthought in this offense when Keenan Allen is healthy. In games in which Herbert has started, Williams has never had more than two receptions except for Week 5 when Allen was ruled out in the first quarter. Even in the deepest leagues, Williams is not a recommended start.

LAC WR Mike Williams - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 vs Jacksonville

Mike Williams had one of the best games of his career in Week 5 before the bye week, as he caught five of his eight targets for 109 yards and two touchdowns. With Keenan Allen missing most of the game with a minor back injury, Williams dominated the targets as he repeatedly made soaring acrobatic catches. Prior to this game, it appeared Williams did not have much chemistry will Justin Herbert, however that appears to be false now.

Even with the return of Keenan Allen, Williams will retain his role as Chargers’ deep and red-zone threat, which will garner him plenty of looks in this potent offense. Against this poor Jacksonville secondary, fire up Williams as an upside WR3 in this one.

LAC WR Mike Williams - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 vs. Carolina

For as much of an improvement as the offense made with Justin Herbert at QB, Williams seems to be the only one who has suffered because of it. Already Tyrod Taylor’s primary down field target in Week 1, Williams was only able to catch two of his four targets for 14 yards in Week 2. Williams might be the fourth receiving option in this offense and his chemistry with Herbert will be revealed as the season winds down. Williams should be viewed a WR4 in Week 3, however his big play potential always gives upside for a big game.

LAC WR Mike Williams - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 vs. Kansas City

By all accounts late last week, Williams’ shoulder injury was either going to keep him out of Week 1 or make him a decoy. He was neither as he led the team in targets with nine and finished the game with four catches for 69 yards. Williams flashed his big-play ability repeatedly being targeted downfield, and he looked as explosive as ever. It appears Tyrod Taylor might prefer Williams, but only time will tell if this connection is real. Williams’ big-play ability will keep him as an upside FLEX against Kansas City with serious WR3 appeal.
