Week 3: vs Kansas City Chiefs

All WR vs KC

FBG says: Neutral matchup. The Chargers passing offense responded in a big way against Miami last week after a slow week one to the season in a tough matchup against Denver. Keenan Allen continues to show that when he is healthy he is one of the best receivers in football as he had 9 receptions for 100 yards last week. The one thing that continues to be encouraging about the Chargers offense is the volume that they're throwing the ball as they threw for 39 Last week, the Chiefs played solid defensively in the first half before allowing Carson Wentz and the Eagles to have a big second half offensively. The Chiefs have struggled so far this year against the pass as Phillip Gaines out of the slot and Terrance Mitchell have both struggled so far this season. The Chiefs on the season have allowed the sixth most passing yards on the year, so this should setup well for Keenan Allen who is a primary slot receiver and Tyrell Williams who will likely see the most coverage from Mitchell on the right side of the field.

2017 Week 2 vs MIA (4 / 4 / 54 / 0 rec)

Williams was still involved in the gameplan, but he took a definite back seat to Keenan Allen and Hunter Henry (and for that matter, Melvin Gordon) in the passing game. And near the red zone, Philip Rivers seemed intent on almost forcing the ball to Antonio Gates so he could break Tony Gonzalez's tight end touchdown record. Williams' longest play of the game was a 23-yarder to put the ball deep into Miami territory in the first half that featured a long run after the catch. He added a nice diving grab on the very next play on a comeback route to put the ball in the red zone. But his usage was a bit sporadic from that point forward.

2017 Week 1 vs DEN (7 / 5 / 54 / 0 rec)

Williams is expected to fill the role as the number two wide receiver for the Chargers this season. And with the return of Keenan Allen from injury it was expected that Williams' target share will greatly decrease from last year. But at least in this game, Williams tied for the team lead in receptions and actually led the team in receiving yardage. He was targeted on the first play of the game, but didn't record his first reception until late in the first half. With the offense largely running through both Allen and Melvin Gordon, it was difficult for Williams to get in a rhythm. But in the second half, his targets were more reminiscent of 2016. The quick inside slants and crossing routes were how he did most of his work - and he nearly added another somewhat long reception on the last drive, but a great play by the Denver defender was the only reason it was stripped away for an incompletion at the last moment.
