Player Notes
Jan 14 9:20pm ET

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams (back) has an "outside chance" to play in the Divisional Round, assuming the team advances that far, according to a report from NFL.com's Ian Rapoport. Williams appeared in 13 games this year, which was the lowest mark since his rookie season. The 28-year-old totaled 63 catches, 895 yards, and four touchdowns. He'll be a strong DFS option once he returns in the playoffs, but until then, look for Joshua Palmer and DeAndre Carter to see more snaps alongside Keenan Allen.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) is inactive for the Wild-Card game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Fantasy Spin: Williams was already ruled out and could be out for the rest of the season if the Chargers don't make it to the Super Bowl.

The Los Angeles Chargers have declared TE Stone Smartt, OT Storm Norton, DT Tyeler Davison, WR Mike Williams, QB Easton Stick, S JT Woods and RB Isaiah Spiller inactive for Wild Card Weekend.

Dynasty | Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams is reportedly out 2-3 weeks with a back fracture. Dynasty Analysis: Yikes. The Chargers played the oft-injured Williams in what amounted to be a meaningless game against the Broncos last week. As he so often does, Head Coach Brandon Staley played with fire and this time got burned. A year after posting a solid 76/1,146/9 in 2021, Williams was in and out of the lineup all season and could only post 63 catches for 895 yards and four scores in parts of 13 games this season. This development is yet another reminder that Williams has undeniable talent and injury concerns at the same time. He comes in as our WR35 and that seems about right for the time being.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) suffered a small non-surgical fracture in his back and is expected to be out for 2-3 weeks, according to a source Friday, Jan. 13.

Fantasy Spin: Williams' season could have come to an end if the Chargers don't make it to the Super Bowl, and he shouldn't be played in any fantasy lineups.

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams (back) suffered a small non-surgical fracture in his back in the Week 18 regular season finale that is expected to keep him out for the next two to three weeks, according to sources. It means that barring a Chargers Super Bowl run, Williams' season is likely over. Head coach Brandon Staley is probably wishing he didn't play his starters so deep into a meaningless game last Sunday. With Williams out for the foreseeable future, it makes quarterback Justin Herbert slightly less attractive in playoff leagues, while Keenan Allen should be a target hog in this offense. Joshua Palmer and DeAndre Carter will also have bigger roles and are absolutely worth a look as low-cost DFS sleeper selections.

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams (back) has been ruled out for the wild-card game on Saturday against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Williams didn't practice at all this week and was listed as questionable on the final injury report on Thursday, but he has since been downgraded to out. Head coach Brandon Staley curiously played the starters late into a meaningless Week 18 contest last week, and he paid the price with Williams getting hurt. If the Bolts get past the Jags this weekend, it's unclear if Williams would be able to make it back for the Divisional Round. With Williams out, it puts a damper on quarterback Justin Herbert's fantasy appeal, while top wideout Keenan Allen should be a target hog. Joshua Palmer and DeAndre Carter also become interesting DFS sleeper plays.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) was downgraded from questionable Friday, Jan. 13, and has been ruled out for the wild-card game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Fantasy Spin: Williams suffered his injury in the meaningless Week 18 game so Brandon Staley could come under some fire. In dynasty, Williams is still a boom/bust WR2 while Josh Palmer should see some extra targets in the playoff game.

From TheHuddle

Jan 12 8:53pm ET

Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) will participate in pregame warmups before the team decides on his status for the Wild Card playoff game, according to head coach Brandon Staley.

Fantasy Spin: Williams missed all three practices leading up to the game and may be limited even if he is active for the game. He is a risky fantasy option, and fantasy players will need other options ready in case he sits out.

From TheHuddle

Jan 12 6:30pm ET

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams (back) did not participate in Thursday's practice and is officially questionable for the wild-card game this Saturday against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Head coach Brandon Staley says there's a genuine chance that Williams plays despite not practicing this week, and Staley confirmed that Williams will travel with the squad. The team will likely wait until closer to game-time before making a final decision. The 28-year-old appears to be risky DFS option considering he's not 100 percent healthy heading into this game. Fantasy managers should check back for another update on Williams.

From RotoBaller

Jan 12 4:23pm ET

Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) did not practice all week and was listed as questionable for the wild card game against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday, Jan. 12.

Fantasy Spin: Williams will be a true game-time decision for Saturday. If he suits up and is healthy, he'll be a good DFS option in a game against the Jaguars that could see a lot of points.

From TheHuddle

Jan 12 4:23pm ET

Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) did not practice once again on Thursday, Jan. 12, and is listed as questionable for Saturday's game. Also, LB Joey Bosa (groin), CB Bryce Callahan (groin), RB Zander Horvath (ankle), LB Kenneth Murray (neck), LB Amen Ogbongbemiga (biceps), OT Trey Pipkins (knee) and S Raheem Layne (thumb) practiced in full and were removed from the injury report.

From TheHuddle

Jan 11 6:30pm ET

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams (back) did not participate in the team's practice on Wednesday. Williams suffered a back injury during the Chargers' Week 18 contest and should be considered questionable to suit up against the Jacksonville Jaguars in the Wild Card round of the playoffs. Head coach Brandon Staley expressed on Monday that he expects the 28-year-old to practice at some point ahead of Saturday's matchup, so Williams' activity will be worth monitoring throughout the rest of the week.

From RotoBaller

Jan 11 5:33pm ET

Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Jan. 11.

Fantasy Spin: Williams has missed the first two practices of the week after suffering the injury last week. There is a good chance that he will be a game-time decision this week and will be a risky fantasy option if active.

From TheHuddle

Jan 10 11:00pm ET

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams (back) was listed as a non-participant in Tuesday's walkthrough practice. Williams suffered a back injury in the Week 18 regular season finale and had to be carted to the locker room. However, X-rays came back negative and the 28-year-old is believed to be dealing with nothing more than a back contusion. Head coach Brandon Staley said on Monday that he thinks Williams will be able to practice at some point this week. Still, it casts some doubt about how healthy he'll actually be in the wild-card game this Saturday against the Jacksonville Jaguars if he's active. As long as Williams practices on Wednesday or Thursday, he should be active, but then the question becomes: Should fantasy managers trust him?

From RotoBaller

Jan 10 8:33pm ET

Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) did not practice on Tuesday, Jan. 10. Also, LB Joey Bosa (groin), CB Bryce Callahan (groin), FB Zander Horvath (ankle), LB Kenneth Murray (neck), LB Amen Ogbongbemiga (biceps) and OT Trey Pipkins III (knee) practiced in full. The injury report is an estimation because the Chargers only held a walk-through.

From TheHuddle

Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) did not practice on Tuesday, Jan. 10. The injury report was an estimation because Los Angeles held a walk-through.

Fantasy Spin: Williams avoided a serious injury in a meaningless game in Week 18, with an MRI confirming he didn't suffer a fracture or muscle injury. He is expected to be available for the playoff contest against the Jacksonville Jaguars and is a good DFS option in a game that could see a good amount of points.

From TheHuddle

Jan 10 4:03pm ET

Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) continues to receive treatment on his back contusion and is considered day-to-day.

Fantasy Spin: It appears Williams will be able to suit up this weekend against the Jacksonville Jaguars, but there is a strong possibility he may not be able to play a full complement of snaps. For fantasy purposes, there should be enough concern with his status that Keenan Allen gets a bit of a bump for DFS purposes. Josh Palmer could also emerge as a low-cost punt play as well.

From TheHuddle

Jan 9 4:10pm ET

Los Angeles Chargers head coach Brandon Staley said that wide receiver Mike Williams' (back) MRI exam showed no fractures or muscle injuries in his back. Williams is dealing with a contusion, and Staley expects him to return to practice at some point this week. It's great news for the 28-year-old after he was injured in a meaningless Week 18 regular season finale against the Denver Broncos on Sunday. Williams finished the regular season with 63 catches on 93 targets for 895 yards and four touchdowns in 13 games played, and he'll be a critical part of the Bolts offense on wild-card weekend against the Jacksonville Jaguars if he's able to play. If he's limited at all or inactive, Joshua Palmer and DeAndre Carter would handle bigger roles behind Keenan Allen.

From RotoBaller

Jan 9 3:53pm ET

Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) was diagnosed with a back contusion Monday, Jan. 9, after he made an early exit during the team's Week 18 game against the Denver Broncos.

Fantasy Spin: According to head coach Brandon Staley, Williams is expected to return to practice at some point this week. While it bodes well for his ability to play in the Wild-Card Round, it also begs the question of why Staley had so many of his key players playing so long into what was essentially a meaningless game on Sunday. As of now, expect Williams to play against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
