Scouting report

LV WR Tyrell Williams - 2020 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside

Tyrell Williams has shown significant upside at times throughout his five-year career, including 1,059 yards for the Chargers back in 2016. Since then, he’s had inconsistent targets and inconsistent results until signing with the Raiders for a big-money deal last offseason. Williams had six touchdowns last season and is a true outside threat, so it’s possible he’ll enter the season as the starter, which should yield at least a high enough floor to be fantasy relevant.

Fantasy Downside

Williams signed that big money deal a year ago – four years, 44.4 million dollars – but Over the Cap shows he can be released as soon as next off-season with zero dead money. That means Williams will very likely be fighting for his roster spot as he tries to recover from a lost season where he was on and off the injury report, missed two games, and wound up with just 651 yards on 42 receptions. He’ll have a lot of competition this year with Nelson Agholor and rookies Henry Ruggs and Bryan Edwards vying for snaps.

2020 Bottom Line

Keep an eye on the depth chart as the season draws closer. If Williams can hold off the youngsters, he will have value at his current, undrafted ADP in most league formats. He’s risky to count on, but he’s one of the few players you can get in the last round of drafts that at least has a shot at the top spot on the depth chart.

OAK WR Tyrell Williams - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 at Denver Broncos
In Week 16, Williams finished with four receptions on four targets, 82 yards, 46 air yards, 13% of the team targets, 34% of the team air yards, and finished as the half PPR WR35.

The Raiders are motivated to win because they still have a slim chance of making the playoffs. A lot of pieces would have to fall into place but it is still mathematically possible.

Williams practiced on Wednesday but missed Thursday’s practice due to ongoing issues with plantar fasciitis. On Friday, the Raiders announced Williams will play this week. He will matchup against the Broncos defense that is ranked tenth worst against wide receivers, per our schedule adjust fantasy points metric. 4for4 rankings expert, John Paulsen, has Williams ranked as a fringe half PPR WR3.

OAK WR Tyrell Williams - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 at Los Angeles Chargers
In Week 15, Williams played 96% of snaps, had two receptions on three targets, 45 yards, one touchdown, 22 air yards, 8% of the team targets, 9% of the team air yards, and finished as the half PPR WR33. Williams was able to find the end zone but only finished as a WR3 with a score. He hasn’t had 7 or more targets since Week 4. His low floor and low ceiling combination make him a risky start in championship matchups.

OAK WR Tyrell Williams - Week 15 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 15 vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
In Week 14, Williams played 76% of snaps, had three receptions on four targets, 35 yards, 49 air yards, zero touchdowns, 12% of the team targets, 20% of the team air yards, and finished as the half PPR WR64. Williams started the season with a touchdown in five straight games played but has not found the end zone in his last five games. On Thursday, Offensive Coordinator, Greg Olson, said William’s plantar fasciitis is, “a pretty significant injury, but he’s battling through it.”

The blueprint for beating Jacksonville is attacking them on the ground. They are eight best against wide receivers, per our schedule adjust fantasy points metric, but they are second to last against running backs. 4for4 rankings expert, John Paulsen, has Williams ranked as a mid-range half PPR WR4 this week. Given Williams’ plantar fasciitis, his low floor makes him a risky start in the fantasy semifinals.

OAK WR Tyrell Williams - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 12 at New York Jets
In Week 11, Williams had four receptions on four targets, 82 yards, 62 air yards, zero touchdowns, 14% of the team targets, 33% of the team air yards, and finished as the half PPR WR26. Williams has only topped 90 yards twice this season but has scored a touchdown in five out of five games played.

The blueprint to beating the Jets is through the passing game. The Jets are second to last against wide receivers, per our signature schedule-adjusted fantasy points allowed metric. With the assumption of rational coaching, Jon Gruden should get his receivers involved early and often. 4for4 rankings expert, John Paulsen, has Williams ranked as a mid-range half PPR WR2. He is always a threat to catch a deep ball for a touchdown.
