Summary

Williams continues to tantalize fantasy folks with his playmaking abilities, but has yet to truly deliver. His efficiency has been top-notch: over the past 3 years, his 10.0 yards per target bests the likes of Tyreek Hill, Julio Jones, and DK Metcalf. Williams is big-framed and quick-footed, and he's great on contested throws down the field. A big fantasy week always seems on the horizon for Williams - particularly with an exciting young quarterback throwing the ball. But Williams just isn't a dependable part of the Chargers' pass game on any consistent basis. He's yet to post a 50-catch season in the NFL, and he's cleared 800 yards only once. He's always one of the top speculative picks in the middle of a draft, but with so many high-ceiling options out there, his range has slipped into WR4 territory. (May 17)

Chargers | Mike Williams in a good spot? (Sun Jun 13, 08:25 PM) - Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams will be playing the X position in offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi's system. 'As much as this offense will resemble New Orleans, he plays the 'X' and the ball has always kind of found the 'X' receiver in this offense,' Lombardi said of Williams. 'I think that there will be some natural production that comes his way because of the nature of the offense.'

Chargers | Big year for Mike Williams? (Wed Jun 2, 10:11 PM) - Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams should have 'nice numbers' this season, according to offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi.

Our View: Williams has always had the talent but he's yet to put it all together in the NFL. Perhaps that happens this season, and working with QB Justin Herbert all offseason should help. Williams is a WR4 with upside for Fantasy GMs in 2021.

Chargers | Mike Williams poised to have big year? (Wed Jun 2, 12:36 AM) - Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams should post 'nice numbers this year,' according to new offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi.

Our View: Williams should have a better season in 2021 as QB Justin Herbert continues to grow as a passer. He's got the size to box out smaller defenders and can win contested catches regularly. Projecting Williams for around 50-55 catches and perhaps a 1,000 yards with 5-7 touchdowns seems logical. Williams has the potential to do more but has yet to put it all together in the pros. He's more of a WR4 with upside for Fantasy GMs.
