Dynasty Rankings in The Shark Pool (NFL Talk) Posted February 12, 2013 I'm hoping to get a few opinions on Mike Williams. He came into the league in 2010, and fell to the 4th round because of some pretty sketchy behavior at Syracuse. Yet he tore up the Tampa Bay training camp, won the #1 WR position and finished as WR11 with 65/964/11. At that point, he was dismissed by many as a one trick pony. The character concerns came to the forefront in 2011, as the pretty much the whole Tampa team quit about half way through the season. Williams was reportedly one of the problems, and finished 65/771/3 or WR50. Written off by most, he entered 2012 as Tampa's #2 guy behind newly signed VJAX. Reports were that VJAX took Williams under his wings a bit and showed him how to be a pro. Williams finished with 63/996/9 or WR18. Yet at this point, I consistently see him going somewhere between WR36-47 in startups. He's got plenty of speed (4.53) for his size 6'2" 212. He's proven to be a very good red zone threat. (that's good in fantasy football right?) There doesn't seem to be concerns about his route running, or his ability to get off press coverage. Athletically, he tests out as a top notch prospect. My linkSo we've got a 25 year old WR that has seemingly overcome his biggest question mark coming into the NFL. (character). He's got a low end WR1 finish, and a mid WR2 finish in the two years he tried. Yet he's somehow falling into WR4 territory in drafts. What am I missing here?I discount him a lot based on my (justified or not) concern that a lot of his value is tied to his high TD totals. I think next year you could very easily be looking at a 60-925-5 year.This. I agree Williams is undervalued. I'll admit that every time I look at WR rankings for the past season I'm surprised by just how well he did- he generated practically no buzz. Still, his career high in receptions is 65. His career high in yards is under 1,000 (albeit barely). He's the clear-cut #2 on a passing offense I don't have tons of faith in. I'd rank him close to another perpetually underrated but consistent performer- Lance Moore.Thanks for the input guys. A few more thoughts.The Bucs have opened up contract extension talks with Williams a year early. Local speculation has the deal around 5 years 36 million. That should settle any job security issues for a while. Its also confirmation about his abilities and turnaround in character from the team that knows him best. (incidently, its almost double the deal Lance Moore signed in 2011) With his job being relatively secure, lets go with the aforementioned 60-925-5 as his healthy floor going forward. Those are the numbers of your typical low end WR2 or high end WR3.His two good years have averaged 64/980/10. Now lets say you were optimistic about his future, and added 12 catches to that. (using his pace from the two good years) His numbers would be 76/1165/12. That's borderline top 5 any year. How could he get 12 more catches in a season? How about Freeman just becoming more accurate, or Williams actually improving his game, or both....I guess what I'm saying is he doesn't necessarily need a bunch more targets in this offense to put up big numbers.Williams will get paid more than Lance Moore because Williams is a better receiver than Lance Moore. Unfortunately for Mike Williams owners, Drew Brees is a better QB than Josh Freeman.
