Week 1 vs. GB
Receiving: 1 / 3 / 1 on 1 targets
Mike Williams did not get involved until the second quarter, as he was the intended recipient on pass in the second quarter that was overthrown by QB Harrington. The two players connected later in the fourth quarter for a three yard touchdown strike to finish the scoring for the game.
Week 2 vs. CHI
Receiving: 0 / 0 / 0 on 1 targets
Williams was only targeted three times and did not record a reception for the game. He did catch a 44 yard pass down the right sideline, but the play was called back due to his own pass interference penalty. He also was targeted on a third down play over the middle that he tipped in the air and was caught by teammate Kevin Johnson for a first down.
Week 4 vs. TB
Receiving: 3 / 22 / 0 on 4 targets
Williams made his first reception for two yards in the second quarter. He made his second reception of 11 yards in the fourth quarter to gain a third down conversion. At the end of the quarter, Williams was targeted in the end zone, but was out of bounds when he came down with the reception. It would have been a great catch, but there are lots of receivers in the league who would have shown better footwork and come down with a completion and touchdown there.
Week 5 vs. BAL

Williams didn't show much, only catching one of the seven balls thrown his way.
Week 6 vs. CAR
Receiving: 2 / 27 / 0 on 2 targets

Week 7 vs. CLE
Receiving: 5 / 95 / 0 on 7 targets
With the absence of Roy Williams and Charles Rogers, Mike Williams has been asked to become the playmaker in the receiving corps, and responded in this game, nearly reaching the 100 yard mark, including a 49 yard catch at the end of the first quarter. Williams did, however, have a critical fumble in a game tied at 10-10, though the error did not cost his team the game on this day.
Week 8 vs. CHI
Receiving: 3 / 27 / 0 on 7 targets
Garcia targeted Williams during the first quarter, but the pass was thrown too high. Williams dropped his second target.

He made a ten yard reception two plays later. He made a seven yard catch in overtime, but was the target of Jeff Garcia's interception that won the game for the Bears.
