He has a knee issue right now, which has nothing to do with a herniated disc. Are you congratulating yourself here?

no. just pointing out it's not his first go around with injuries. hes not a very reliable fantasy asset 

 

You may actually have been right about an injury in this forum (though missing 1 of 4 games so far might be a bit early to call it). But I know that is a rarity. So... congratulations?

Mike Williams caught 5-of-9 targets for 72 yards in the Chargers' Week 6 loss to the Steelers.

Williams could’ve had an even bigger day had he come down with a diving catch roughly 40 yards downfield, but he made up for the borderline drop with more than a few impressive plays. His finest featured a pancake on pass rusher Bud Dupree on a chip block before breaking two tackles on a quick pass and ultimately picking up a first down. The return of Hunter Henry won’t help Williams’ red zone target share, and Keenan Allen (six targets) will be more involved in future weeks. Still, Williams did rack up an absurd 235 air yards (per Josh Hermsmeyer) and remains capable of putting up splash performances. Note that Williams was helped off the field with what appeared to be a lower body injury after an unsuccessful diving attempt late in the game. Treat him as a boom-or-bust WR3 in Week 7 against the Titans.

Mike Williams caught 4-of-6 targets for 47 yards in the Chargers' Week 7 loss to the Titans.

Williams had a couple of awesome grabs, including an over the shoulder grab that required him to get his toes down before heading into the sideline. Unfortunately, his efforts went to waste in the Chargers' epic late-second loss. With Keenan Allen, Hunter Henry, Melvin Gordon, and Austin Ekeler all getting volume, Williams may have inconsistent usage moving forward, but he has upside every week. Williams will be a boom-or-bust WR3 in Chicago next week.

Mike Williams caught 3-of-4 targets for 111 yards in the Chargers' Week 9 win over the Packers.

Williams added a two-yard rush. Surprisingly, the 100-yard game was the first of his career. Williams had never before even reached 90, settling for a trio of 80-yard performances. He was buoyed by 56- and 46-yard receptions, doing major YAC damage on the 56-yarder. It was a nice day but hardly a guarantor of bigger days to come considering the limited looks. Week 10 Thursday night opponent Oakland does boast one of the league's worst pass defenses. Williams should find himself in the WR20-28 range in a week with six teams on bye.

Mike Williams caught 2-of-3 targets for 55 yards in the Chargers' Week 10 loss to the Raiders.

Coming off the first 100-yard game of his career — on four targets — Williams could muster only three looks as continued Raiders pressure prevented the Chargers from getting their deep passing game going. Williams did manage a YAC-less 45-yard grab but was otherwise an afterthought on a discombobulated night for the Bolts. He will be a low-floor WR3 for the Chargers' Week 11 "hosting" of the Chiefs in Mexico City.

Was a big Williams fan in his Clemson days, and thought he'd be the perfect fit for Rivers. Looked like he broke out last year, but not sure what to make of this years performance and it has me questioning his value as a cornerstone dynasty hold. I can't tell if he's having trouble separating or running wrong routes, but the fact that he was out targeted by a guy I never heard of in Jason Moore, who looked like he was wearing concrete shoes, has me wondering what is up with Mike? I mean, he did catch 2 of 3 for 55, but only averaging 3 targets a game? What is his future with the Chargers? Just a guy?

Guy's on pace for 1000 yards. Had ten tds on 66 targets last year... The over correction this year is the complete opposite.

I think from what I've seen from Williams this year, he's been able to show some improvement from last year where it seemed like he was more of solely a downfield or redzone threat. This year, he's shown that he can generate some run after the catch yards (last week he had that massive run after the catch play) and work in intermediate zones. 

The issues to me seem two fold. First in terms of the TDs, Henry being out last year did inflate last year's TD number a little although I do think Williams is still a good redzone threat (and opposing teams do understand that). Last night, he was wide open for a TD on the Chargers first TD drive, but Rivers chose to go to Allen for a 3 yard gain instead. A couple plays later, Williams drew 2 Raiders defenders which left Henry wide open for his TD. He was also the target of a Rivers INT in the redzone (that got nullified due to penalty on the Raiders) on the next Chargers scoring drive. I don't think he's lost any red-zone prowess and is probably still due for some positive regression the rest of the year, but not to the level of last year when Henry was out. 

The bigger issue however is that the Chargers O-line sucks. The Chargers have better short or intermediate pass catching weapons in Allen, Henry and the RBs. Williams is still mainly used for deeper routes which helps create the space underneath for those other weapons. Because the O-Line is terrible, Rivers has no time to take the deep shots as often as they would like and has to get rid of the ball quickly to the other options. 

Still think Williams has a bright future, but the rest of this year might be tough as it doesn't look like the Chargers O-line is getting better any time soon. Hopefully the Week 12 bye does them some good.

Mike Williams caught 2-of-5 targets for 76 yards in the Chargers' Week 11 loss to the Chiefs.

Williams caught a 26-yarder early in the first half but went catch-less the rest of the way until the final drive when he made a sensational 50-yard grab on a third down to keep the Chargers alive and out them in the red zone down one touchdown with less than a minute to play. Philip Rivers tossed his fourth interception a couple plays later, however. Williams still hasn't scored this season after catching 10 touchdowns last year. He'll be a WR3/4 in Week 13 against Denver after the bye.

Mike Williams caught 5-of-7 targets for 117 yards in the Chargers' Week 13 loss to the Broncos.

Williams got loose for a monster 52 yard gain before halftime after two defenders ran into each other and fell down. Later he converted a 4th and 11 with fewer than three minutes remaining with a circus contested-catch deep down the sideline. The former No. 7 overall pick of the 2017 draft continues to make a truly amazing catch or two per week, but he’s now seen an absurd 69 targets this season without finding the end zone. Williams is too good to go much longer without a touchdown, but that’s pretty much been the case all season. Treat him as an upside WR4 in Week 14 against the Jaguars.

Mike Williams caught 2-of-3 targets for 63 yards and a touchdown in the Chargers’ Week 14 win over the Jaguars.

It took 71 targets, but Williams found the end zone. Williams’ touchdown was a ridiculous 44-yard diving catch over the top of Tre Herndon with the Chargers already leading 31-10. He scored 10 touchdowns on just 66 targets in 2018. The former No. 7 overall pick of the 2017 draft has now balled out in consecutive games after posting a 5-117-0 line in Week 13. Williams has more than seven targets in just two games this season, but he's routinely managed to come down with circus downfield receptions to at least provide a decent yardage floor. Treat him as a boom-or-bust WR3 in Week 15 against the Vikings’ mediocre group of corners.

Mike Williams caught 4-of-9 targets for 71 yards and one touchdown in the Chargers' Week 15 loss to the Vikings.

After not scoring Weeks 1-13, Williams has found the end zone in back-to-back weeks. He was targeted on a couple of Philip Rivers' interceptions in this one, but they were lazily-thrown ducks down the middle where Williams didn't really have chances to make plays on the ball. He's the only semblance of a downfield threat in this offense. Williams will be a TD-dependent WR2/3 for Week 16 against the lowly Raiders.
