Summary

Tyrell Williams has seen his fantasy numbers decrease each year since his breakout 2016 season with the Chargers. He missed the entirety of the 2020 season with the Raiders and was cut, making it just halfway through the four-year, $44M contract he signed in 2019. While he has proven to be miscast as a WR1, he may again be forced into that role with the Lions given the team's utter lack of proven talent at the position. It is questionable whether any Lions wide receiver will have fantasy value in 2021 but Williams is as good a bet as any, making him worth considering in the final rounds of deeper leagues. (May 18)

Lions | Tyrell Williams the go-to guy? (Thu Jun 10, 09:56 PM) - Detroit Lions WR Tyrell Williams 'appears to be' the No. 1 receiver for QB Jared Goff during practices, according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press.

Our View: Williams isn't going to run the whole route tree, but he can make a difference downfield and after the catch on crossing routes. He could have some spot start viability if he's completely over his foot problems.
