Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (hamstring) suffered a hamstring injury in Week 3 against the Carolina Panthers and he was unable to return.
Fantasy Spin: That explains his lack of usage in the home loss to the Panthers. He managed just one catch for 17 yards on one target We'll know more about his status for Week 4 once practice resumes on Wednesday.
Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams finished with one reception for 17 yards on his only target in Week 3 against the Carolina Panthers.
Fantasy Spin: That's two eggs laid in the past two games. It appears he jelled more with Tyrod Taylor, the Week 1 quarterback, as he has barely made an impact in the previous two with rookie Justin Herbert at the helm. Reserve Williams in all fantasy leagues until he starts to show a little more consistency. The Chargers meet the Buccaneers in Week 4.
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams (hamstring) is questionable to return to his team's Week 3 contest against the Carolina Panthers. If Williams doesn't return -- or if he misses time with this hamstring injury -- we'll see a lot more of Jalen Guyton on the field. He'd become a deep-league flex option is out in Week 4 against Tampa Bay, though it's too early to start planning for that possibility.
Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams caught two of four targeted passes for 14 yards in Week 2 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Fantasy Spin: Coming on the heels of a solid opener, Williams was a distant third in the pecking order Sunday behind Keenan Allen and Hunter Henry. He's still worth owning, but Williams isn't a weekly lock at this stage.
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams struggled in Week 2 against the Kansas City Chiefs. Williams was a popular waiver wire add after a strong Week 1, but was only targeted four times by rookie quarterback Justin Herbert. Williams only caught two balls and those went for 14 yards. Despite the rough performance, Williams should see brighter days ahead as Justin Herbert is likely to remain the starter at quarterback. Williams should be treated as a WR4/WR5 in deeper leagues for now, but has strong upside if he reaches his potential.
Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 18, and is not on the injury report for Week 2.
Fantasy Spin: Williams is coming off a solid Week 1 performance and may be targeted a lot this week if the team is losing in the second half. He can be a No. 3 receiver or flex option in fantasy leagues.
Los Angeles Chargers RB Justin Jackson (quad) did not practice all week and is listed as doubtful for Week 2 versus the Kansas City Chiefs. TE Donald Parham (illness) returned to a full practice Friday, Sept. 18, and has been removed from the injury report. DE Joey Bosa (triceps), CB Casey Hayward (knee), OG Trai Turner (knee), WR Mike Williams (shoulder) and QB Tyrod Taylor (ribs) also practiced in full Friday and no longer appear on the injury report.
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams will look to build off of a solid Week 1 performance with a matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. Williams was dealing with a shoulder injury last week, but was still able to grab four catches for 69 yards on nine targets. The most important part of that line is that quarterback Tyrod Taylor was looking for his big target a bunch. Taylor isnt the most accurate quarterback, but Williams has shown flashes of being able to make spectacular catches in his young career. With the Chargers likely to be playing behind on Sunday, they may have no choice but to pass and Williams could be a part of that attack. Williams will be going up against a young secondary and could be considered a for the flex position in deeper leagues.
Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (shoulder) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 17.
Fantasy Spin: Williams was targeted a team-high nine times in the season opener and finished with 69 yards. He should continue to be one of the main options in the passing game and can be a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.
Los Angeles Chargers RB Justin Jackson (quad) and TE Donald Parham (illness) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 17. DE Joey Bosa (triceps) was limited. CB Casey Hayward (knee), OG Trai Turner (knee) and WR Mike Williams (shoulder) practiced in full.
Los Angeles WR Mike Williams (shoulder) practiced in full Wednesday, Sept. 16.
Fantasy Spin: Williams caught four of nine targets for 69 yards in Week 1. He should be a viable WR3 in most matchups with a large target share.
Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (shoulder) had four catches for 69 yards in Week 1 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Fantasy Spin: Williams was a game-time decision due to a shoulder injury he suffered in camp. He looked healthy, though, finishing second on the team in both receptions and receiving yards. He rates as a solid WR3, even with a seemingly fluid situation under center.
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams (shoulder) finished with four catches (nine targets) for 69 yards during the win over the Bengals on Sunday. Williams' status heading into Week 1 was uncertain, and although he was able to suit up, questions remained regarding his workload against Cincinnati. Fantasy managers will want to monitor his health heading into the Week 2 outing against the Chiefs as it is likely he will make an appearance on the practice reports once again. He should remain a starter in deeper formats if he does play against Kansas City, despite a relatively challenging defensive matchup.
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams (shoulder) is active for his team's Week 1 meeting with the Bengals. It's unclear how much workload Williams will get in this one as he's likely not at 100 percent, so fantasy managers with other options might want to avoid Williams. If he is on a snap count, Jalen Guyton is the next guy up and could be considered an interesting DFS value, though Guyton's lack of NFL experience is worrisome. Maybe it's best to ignore everyone out of these receivers except for Keenan Allen.
Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (shoulder) is officially active for the team's Week 1 game.
Fantasy Spin: Williams will see plenty of targets in the passing game and should have a favorable matchup. He can be a No. 3 receiver or flex option in fantasy leagues.
Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (shoulder) is not expected to play in Week 1's game against the Cincinnati Bengals, according to a source.
Fantasy Spin: Williams had been listed as questionable on the injury report after being a limited practice participant throughout the week. WRs Keenan Allen and Jalen Guyton, RB Austin Ekeler and TE Hunter Henry should see additional targets during Sunday's afternoon's game.
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams (shoulder) may be available for the opener against the Bengals. Williams injured his AC Joint a few weeks back, and though it's not guaranteed he will be in uniform against Cincinnati, he has a decent shot at playing. The team will monitor things during pre-game warmups and take things from there, but if the 25-year-old doesn't see action in Week 1, look for Keenan Allen, Hunter Henry, and Austin Ekeler to get some extra attention from Tyrod Taylor.
Los Angeles Charger wide receiver Mike Williams (shoulder) will indeed suit up in Week 1 versus the Bengals. His status has shifted back and forth leading up to Sunday, but he is ready to roll. Williams is coming off of a 1001 yard season, but will no longer have Philip Rivers to get him the ball. The Chargers new quarterback Tyrod Taylor figures to run a bit more, but Williams should still have WR4/WR5 value. He will be competing with fellow receiver Keenan Allen, tight end Hunter Henry and running back Austin Ekeler for touches this season.
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams (shoulder) is not expected to suit upon Sunday against the Bengals in Week 1. Williams hurt his shoulder early in camp and was limited in practice throughout the week. Williams is coming off of a strong season with 89 catches and 1001 yards, but has downgraded at quarterback with the departure of Philip Rivers. The Chargers will open the season with Tyrod Taylor behind center, but also have first-round pick Justin Herbert. Williams will also be competing with Austin Ekeler, Hunter Henry and Keenan Allen for touches. Williams should be treated at a wide receiver four or five entering the season. Look for Joe Reed and Jalen Guyton to receive more snaps if Williams is indeed out. Both are best suited as dart throws in DFS.
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams (shoulder) is questionable for Week 1 against the Bengals. Williams put in limited practices all week, giving him a chance to suit up in the regular season opener. However, he likely won't be 100 percent, and Philip Rivers was a much better fit for him than Tyrod Taylor at quarterback. But the Bengals secondary shouldn't really scare anyone, and Williams is an excellent red-zone target and deep-play threat. There's much more bust potential than boom potential this week if he plays, but the 25-year-old would be in consideration as a flex option in DFS and non-PPR leagues if he winds up playing.
