  Raiders | Tyrell Williams could be let go    Sat Jan 16, 10:17 PM

Las Vegas Raiders WR Tyrell Williams may be a cap casualty this season because the team would save $11.6 million in salary cap space if they release him.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. Things haven't gone the way the Raiders planned since they picked Williams up. Injury or ineffectiveness (miscast as their no.1 receiver a year ago) have plagued his time with the Raiders. They have a nice collection of young WR talent like Henry Ruggs, Hunter Renfrow and Bryan Edwards to move forward with.

  Raiders | Tyrell Williams update    Tue Sep 1, 05:04 PM

Updating a previous story, Las Vegas Raiders WR Tyrell Williams (shoulder) will undergo surgery for a torn labrum later this month and will be sidelined for six months, according to a source Tuesday, Sept. 1.

Footballguys view: Williams has been banged up each of the last two years with the Raiders. He'll miss the 2020 season even though he wanted to try and play through this injury. The Raiders move forward with a young trio of wide receivers at the top of the depth chart including Henry Ruggs, Hunter Renfrow and Bryan Edwards.

  Raiders | Tyrell Williams done for season    Tue Sep 1, 04:55 PM

Las Vegas Raiders WR Tyrell Williams (shoulder) was placed on season-ending injured reserve Tuesday, Sept. 1.

Footballguys view: Williams was going to try and play through this shoulder injury. That's not going to be the case now as he's set to undergo surgery to repair the damage.

  Raiders | Tyrell Williams sidelined again    Wed Aug 26, 02:33 PM

Las Vegas Raiders WR Tyrell Williams (shoulder) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Aug. 26.

Footballguys view: Williams is going to try and play through this shoulder injury. He may not have to play that much with the three young receivers the Raiders have in Henry Ruggs, Bryan Edwards and Hunter Renfrow.

  Raiders | Tyrell Williams has torn labrum    Mon Aug 24, 04:39 PM

Las Vegas Raiders WR Tyrell Williams (shoulder) has a torn labrum in his shoulder but will try to play through the injury after a few weeks of rehab, according to sources.

Footballguys view: That's not a recipe for success. Williams struggled with a foot injury last year and will try to do the same this year but with a different injury. We should see the Raiders get more out of Henry Ruggs, Bryan Edwards and Hunter Renfrow with Williams banged up and not at 100 percent.

  Raiders | Tyrell Williams improving    Wed Aug 12, 04:18 PM

Las Vegas Raiders WR Tyrell Williams (feet) is 'over the hump' with his plantar fasciitis issue but is continuing to do daily maintenance.

Footballguys view: Williams is not a no.1 receiver and he's got to be healthy. Last year, Williams saw top coverage as the no.1 receiver for the Raiders and he was banged up. Now healthy and the no.2 receiver, Williams should be a more consistent performer...but not terribly exciting for Fantasy GMs.

  Raiders | WRs a sore subject for Las Vegas GM    Tue Apr 14, 09:26 PM

Las Vegas Raiders WRs Tyrell Williams, Nelson Agholor and Hunter Renfrow are currently expected to be the team's top three receivers on the depth chart, but general manager Mike Mayock recently acknowledged during a pre-draft interview with ESPN's Dan Graziano that 'we need to get better at wideout.'

Footballguys view: The Raiders were supposed to have Antonio Brown as their No.1 receiver last year...and we all know how that ended up. Expect them to add a wide receiver at some point in the 2020 NFL draft, perhaps even in the first round. This is the best WR class in NFL history, so there will be plenty of talent available if the Raiders want to wait.

  Raiders | Tyrell Williams close to 100 percent    Thu Feb 27, 01:04 PM

Oakland Raiders WR Tyrell Williams (foot) recently told head coach Jon Gruden that he was close to 100 percent recovered from the plantar fasciitis he dealt with last season, Gruden said Thursday, Feb. 27.

Footballguys view: Williams 11 million dollar salary for 2020 was guaranteed earlier in the offseason and the team seems happy with him despite what the injuries took from Williams last year. He could be a bounce back candidate next season after a strong start in 2019 indicates a bigger season coming than what Williams finished with.

  Raiders | Tyrell Williams a popular target    Thu Feb 6, 11:04 PM

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr had a 112.6 quarterback rating when targeting WR Tyrell Williams in 2019, the highest rating to any receiver in his career.

Footballguys view: Williams was a popular target but he was supposed to be the Raiders No.2 receiver in 2019. Instead, after the Antonio Brown fiasco, Williams was thrust into the No.1 role and didn't post massive numbers in 13 games. We should see the Raiders emphasize finding a true No.1 receiver either through free agency or the draft.

  Raiders | Tyrell Williams has salary guaranteed    Wed Feb 5, 06:33 PM

Oakland Raiders WR Tyrell Williams' $11 million base salary for 2020 became full guaranteed Wednesday, Feb. 5.

Footballguys view: Williams wasn't supposed to be their No.1 receiver in 2019...as they thought they had something with Antonio Brown. When Brown was released, the Raiders thrust Williams into a role that doesn't fit him. Expect the team to add WR talent this offseason through the draft or free agency.

Oakland Raiders WR Tyrell Williams (foot) didn't participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 26. He wasn't on the injury report for Wednesday, Dec. 25.

Footballguys view: Williams had a plantar fasciitis problem earlier this year and it's possible that it popped up again. Check the practice reports tomorrow before playing him in Week 17. Hunter Renfrow is the best Raiders wide receiver play this week even if Williams foot is fine for Sunday.

  Raiders | Week 8 injury report for Oakland    Fri Oct 25, 04:04 PM

Oakland Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (shoulder) was upgraded to a limited practice while WR Tyrell Williams (foot) remained a limited participant Friday, Oct. 25; both players are listed as questionable for Week 8 against the Houston Texans.

WR Dwayne Harris (ankle), C Rodney Hudson (ankle), OG Gabe Jackson (knee), DE Arden Key (knee) and RB Jalen Richard (ankle) practiced in full Friday and no longer appear on the injury report.

Footballguys view: A limited practice might be enough to get back on the field for the rookie, but he's a game time decision. DeAndre Washington would be the best back to turn to if Jacobs is out and you need a desperation play.

Footballguys view: We shouldn't expect much from Williams when he does return, and it doesn't sound like that will be this week. He's droppable in short bench leagues.
