  Chargers | Tyrell Williams has solid outing    Sat Aug 20, 08:25 AM

San Diego Chargers WR Tyrell Williams caught four passes for 47 yards in the preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals Friday, Aug. 19. He was targeted six times during the game.

Footballguys view: Williams is staking his claim to the #3 job vacated by Stevie Johnson. This pass offense is a strong one with a great quarterback, so Williams is worth a late pick if he wins that role, and he has lots of upside if any of the core pieces of the pass offense go down.
