    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams caught one pass for 55 yards and one touchdown against the Tennessee Titans in Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Williams has been held to one catch in three of his last four games but helped his fantasy value this week with the touchdown. He has received four targets or less in five of the last six games and will not be a strong option for owners in Week 9.

  • Posted: 10/14/2018 1:46pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams caught one pass for four yards against the Cleveland Browns in Week 6. He also rushed for 10 yards on one carry during the game.

    Huddle Up: Williams has slowed down a bit after a strong start to the season and has been held to under 50 yards in four of the last five games. He could be a flex option in some leagues next week but can also be benched if owners have better options.

  • Posted: 9/23/2018 11:15pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams had four receptions for 81 yards and two touchdowns against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: After basically red-shirting his rookie campaign, Williams is starting to emerge as a weapon for Rivers. He has three touchdowns in the last two games and should be owned in most setups. If he's still available in your league, go get him.

  • Posted: 9/16/2018 2:36pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams caught two passes for 27 yards and one touchdown against the Buffalo Bills in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Williams has caught seven of his eight targets this season and could be in line for a bigger role as the season goes on. He probably can be avoided in most leagues next week because of the tough matchup.

  • Posted: 9/9/2018 8:05pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams finished with five receptions for 81 yards on six targets in the Week 1 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: It was a solid showing for Williams, and the yardage total was a career high. His previous best for catches and yardage came when he had five receptions for 38 yards on Nov. 19, 2017 in a game against the Buffalo Bills. That's the Week 2 opponent for the Chargers next week.

  • Posted: 9/4/2018 1:06am ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams said it's 'totally different' now that he's fully healthy from a herniated disc he sustained at the beginning of training camp last season. 'I'm able to go out there and make those plays I couldn't make last year, make the contested catches,' he said. 'The confidence just comes from being out there. I'm back out there having fun.' For the preseason, Williams hauled in four receptions for 56 yards and a touchdown.

    Huddle Up: Of all the under-the-radar wide-outs entering the 2018 campaign, Williams arguably has as much of a ceiling as anyone, playing in a high-powered offense that isn't afraid to throw often. While it's true that Keenan Allen will gobble up most of the targets, someone has to step up as the club's No. 2 receiver and that could easily be Williams, who is also a solid red-zone target with his plus size.

  • Posted: 9/2/2018 7:39pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams said his back and body feel better since he began a yoga and stretching routine, and he plans on dominating in 2018. '1,000 yards, 10 touchdowns, Pro Bowl,' Williams said.

    Huddle Up: Williams' rookie season was ruined by injuries, but the former top-10 pick is healthy and has the size to be a matchup nightmare in the red zone. He is an excellent addition in the later rounds of drafts.

  • Posted: 8/18/2018 10:44pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams posted a 25-yard touchdown in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 18 against the Seattle Seahawks.

    Huddle Up: Williams had the highlight of the game, going up high to snag a pass in the right corner of the end zone from Geno Smith on his only target. He might be the team's primary red-zone threat, and he showed why in his one. He is worth a look as a WR4 in most fantasy leagues, as someone needs to step up near the end zone with Hunter Henry done for the season.

  • Posted: 8/9/2018 9:34am ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams said he's been given a sizable red-zone role this offseason.

    Huddle Up: Williams could be the Chargers' primary threat near the end zone with Hunter Henry out for the season. The big question will be how much can Williams produce in between the twenties? Becoming too dependent on touchdowns is dangerous, but Williams merits WR4 attention at worst.

  • Posted: 5/26/2018 9:17am ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams has looked more confident and explosive during offseason workouts, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Eric D. Williams.

    Huddle Up: Williams was limited to only 11 receptions and 95 yards last season because of injury, but he should have a solid role in 2018 if he can stay healthy. Williams has a chance to be a late-round option in deeper leagues but probably will not be a weekly starting option.

  • Posted: 4/24/2018 9:16am ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams told the team's website he feels '100 percent' after dealing with a back issue for the majority of his rookie season in 2017.

    Huddle Up: The Chargers' depth chart is still pretty stacked at receiver and Keenan Allen is still Philip Rivers' top option, but Los Angeles can find a sizable role for Williams if he can stay on the field this season. While he may not to produce enough to be a regular fantasy starter as a NFL sophomore, he should be able to begin displaying the talent that made him the No. 7 overall selection in last year's draft.

  • Posted: 1/8/2018 9:53pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams is expected to produce more next year after a full offseason of working with QB Philip Rivers, according to general manager Tom Telesco. Rivers also feels that way and is excited to be working with Williams, citing that he feels he can 'add another dimension' to the offense.

    Huddle Up: Williams had a highly disappointing rookie campaign, logging just 11 catches for 95 yards across 10 ballgames, but in his defense, the former No. 7 overall draft pick had a tough time overcoming injuries. First, he sustained a lower back disc herniation that cost him all of his offseason work and training camp, then a knee injury later on during the season that also cost him time. Williams will be worth a late selection next year in deep formats as a stash.

  • Posted: 12/10/2017 12:13pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) is officially active for the team's Week 14 game.

    Huddle Up: Williams has seen limited targets since returning from his injury and does not have a big role on offense. He can be avoided in most fantasy leagues this week.

  • Posted: 12/9/2017 9:12pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) is listed as questionable to face the Washington Redskins in Week 14, but he is expected to play, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Injuries have plagued Williams all year, and when he has been healthy, the rookie has done little on the field. Avoid him Sunday.

  • Posted: 12/8/2017 12:47pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 8, but is listed as questionable for Week 14.

    Huddle Up: Williams appears to have a decent chance to play in Week 14, but owners should check the inactive list to make sure. He has not done much in the passing game this season and probably can be avoided in most leagues.

  • Posted: 12/7/2017 2:41pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: Williams has missed the last few games because of the injury may appears to have a chance to play against the Washington Redskins. He has been limited to nine catches and 84 yards this season and probably can be avoided in all leagues.

  • Posted: 12/1/2017 5:03pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 1, and has been ruled out for Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Williams is considered week-to-week because of his injury, so owners will need to check his practice participation next week. Travis Benjamin could receive a few more targets and may be a flex option for some owners.

  • Posted: 11/30/2017 4:16pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 30.

    Huddle Up: Williams probably will not be able to play this week and should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 11/29/2017 3:09pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 29.

    Huddle Up: Williams is considered week-to-week at this point, so owners should check on his status later in the week. Owners probably should look for other options to use in their lineups even if Williams is able to play.

  • Posted: 11/27/2017 7:04pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) did not participate in practice Monday, Nov. 27, and was wearing a sleeve on his right knee.

    Huddle Up: Williams is considered day-to-day because of the injury, so owners will need to keep an eye on his practice participation. He has caught nine passes for 84 yards this season and probably can be avoided in most fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 11/26/2017 5:41am ET

    Updating previous reports, Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) is considered week-to-week because of a bone bruise suffered during Week 12's game versus the Dallas Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: Fortunately for Williams, he did not sustain an ACL injury, which means that he is likely to return to action before the end of the season. He is only worthy of being stashed in dynasty leagues at this point. WRs Travis Benjamin and Tyrell Williams should see increased fantasy value in his absence.

  • Posted: 11/25/2017 7:29am ET

    Updating a previous report, an MRI exam for Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) revealed that he does not have an injury to his anterior cruciate ligament, according to head coach Anthony Lynn. However, he is still being evaluated by doctors and trainers.

    Huddle Up: Williams was carted off the field into the locker room and left the stadium on crutches with his right knee in a brace following Week 12's game against the Dallas Cowboys. There is no timetable for his return but he is only worth stashing in dynasty leagues if he is held out of action for multiple weeks. WRs Tyrell Williams and Travis Benjamin will have increased fantasy value in his absence.

  • Posted: 11/24/2017 8:31am ET

    Updating previous reports, Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) will have an MRI on his knee Friday, Nov. 24, but he's expected to miss time. The team has real concern, but they believe the anterior cruciate ligament isn't compromised.

    Huddle Up: If Williams misses multiple weeks, he's only a stash option in dynasty formats. Tyrell Williams could be worth the waiver claim after hitting the end zone in Week 12.

  • Posted: 11/23/2017 3:39pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) will not be able to return to the team's Week 12 game because of the knee injury he suffered during the game.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to look for an update on Williams' status in the next day or two. He has not posted great numbers this season and can be avoided in most fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 11/23/2017 1:57pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (leg) was carted to the locker room Thursday, Nov. 23.

    Huddle Up: It's unclear how serious the injury is, but it's never good when a player is carted off and Williams has dealt with injuries all season. Expect him to be out for the game. If he's out longer, Travis Benjamin and Tyrell Williams will have increased value.

  • Posted: 11/23/2017 7:16am ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) is expected to play Thursday, Nov. 23, against the Dallas Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: Williams had five catches for 38 yards last week in what was his best game as a pro. The Dallas Cowboys are a midrange matchup, but Williams is more of a DFS bargain option.

  • Posted: 11/21/2017 3:26pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) was limited in practice Tuesday, Nov. 21.

    Huddle Up: Williams saw a season-high eight targets last week and could be on his way to the Chargers' No. 2 receiving option behind Keenan Allen if he can stay healthy. Williams has the size and talent to achieve that, but he still can't be viewed as more than a flex right now.

  • Posted: 11/19/2017 8:03pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams posted five receptions for 38 yards on eight targets in Week 11 against the Buffalo Bills.

    Huddle Up: Williams is slowly working his way more into the offensive play. He had two grabs last week after managing just two catches total in his first three games, and now this five-catch performance. Still, he is more of a wait-and-see player for fantasy owners, and he might not be able to help most in 2017.

  • Posted: 10/28/2017 7:19pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams should see more snaps against the New England Patriots in Week 8, according to head coach Anthony Lynn. 'We're going to put more on his plate,' Lynn said. 'But we're not going to feed him more than he can eat. Hopefully he'll get, 20, 25 reps this week.'

    Huddle Up: Williams' long-term upside remains intriguing, but even with 25 reps, he is going to have a tough time making a significant impact. Leave him on the bench against the Patriots.
