Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 4 vs IND (7 / 3 / 36 / 1 rec)
Williams caught a back shoulder fade for a 19-yard touchdown, showing nice body control to twist around and made the grab while falling down. Colts rookie cornerback Rock Ya-Sin had a good day against Williams. Ya-Sin was stride for stride with Williams as Carr targeted him on back-to-back deep balls, knocking both passes down. Williams should have had a second touchdown but dropped a pass in the center of the end zone. He ran a slant and was wide open for what should have been an 8-yard touchdown. The pass was thrown slightly behind him but it was still a catch Williams should have made.
2019 Week 3 vs MIN (3 / 3 / 29 / 1 rec)
Williams was often covered by Xavier Rhodes, who mostly took him out of the game. Williams made a nice diving grab in traffic for a 15-yard pickup on his first target of the game, which came in the two-minute offense before halftime. His other two grabs were both in garbage time in the fourth quarter, including his 11-yard touchdown with just over a minute left. He ran a simple slant route and there wasn't a defender with three yards of him, making for an easy completion in the center of the end zone.
2019 Week 2 vs KC (7 / 5 / 46 / 1 rec)
On the opening drive, Williams was targeted deep down the right sideline but the ball drifted out of bounds. Carr came back to him the next play on the other side of the field and Williams made a spectacular leaping grab over the cornerback for a 16-yard gain. Williams scored a 4-yard touchdown on a sweet stutter and go move. He faked like he was going to cut to the outside and broke the cornerbacks ankles with his cut back to the inside, getting wide open in the back of the end zone for the easy catch. Williams had one-on-one coverage down near the goal line in the second half and Carr again looked his way. This time, the cornerback was able to cut Williams off along the sideline to cut off the fade route and then make a play on the ball for the interception. It was hard to tell whether Carr or Williams was more at fault but the inability for the duo to hook up was extremely costly.
2019 Week 1 vs DEN (7 / 6 / 105 / 1 rec)
Williams almost never left the field, playing 52-of-55 snaps on the day. He looked good in his first chance as a true No. 1 receiver. Williams showed great extension to reach out and pluck the ball in front of him for an 8-yard touchdown on a crossing route on the game's opening drive. He was wide open for an easy 15-yard catch over the middle off of play action. Williams beat single coverage on a 3rd-and-1 and got behind the defense for a 43-yard catch. Carr took another deep shot to Williams on a deep post but it was well-covered by the Broncos. Williams grabbed a 24-yard completion on a skinny post near the end zone, leaping up and snatching the ball above Chris Harris. Williams made one of the key plays of the game late, picking up 10 yards on a 3rd-and-8 screen pass at the two minute warning with the Raiders nursing a one-score lead. His Raiders debut couldn't have gone much better and Williams looks like a potential impact fantasy option moving forward.
