    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.

  • Posted: 10/15/2017 8:43pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) made his season debut Sunday, Oct. 15, catching his only target for 15 yards in a 17-16 win over the Oakland Raiders.

    Huddle Up: The rookie is going to need some time to develop, but he has the size to make an impact in the red zone sooner rather than later. He is an upside WR5 worth stashing.

  • Posted: 10/15/2017 7:07am ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) will make his NFL debut in Week 6's game against the Oakland Raiders, although he will be on a snap count.

    Huddle Up: Williams is too much of a risk to start in any fantasy format this week, although he is worth rostering in keeper and dynasty leagues, with his role in the offense expected to grow as the season progresses.

  • Posted: 10/14/2017 8:52pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) is expected to make his NFL debut in Week 6 against the Oakland Raiders, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: It is way too risky to start Williams in his debut, but the rookie is worth owning in most formats. His role in the offense should only grow as the season goes on.

  • Posted: 10/13/2017 3:15pm ET

    San Diego Chargers LB Mike Williams (back) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 13, and is listed as questionable for Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to check the inactive list to see if Williams will be able to play this week. He could receive limited playing time if he is active since he has missed the first five games of the season. Owners may want to avoid him this week but he could have value during the second half of the season.

  • Posted: 10/12/2017 4:08pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) was a limited participant at practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 12.

    Huddle Up: All signs point to Williams making his NFL debut on Sunday but it's really tough to trust him out of the gate in any league. While there are no doubts about his talent, the rookie's role and number of snaps will absolutely be up in the air in his very first game. And aside from that, there are so many mouths to feed in this offense that it would be tough to gauge how many looks Williams will get. Thus, he should be left on the bench for now, but he certainly has potential to break out at some point.

  • Posted: 10/11/2017 6:31pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) is 'very close' to making his NFL debut, according to head coach Anthony Lynn. They're going to see at the end of the week where he's at, but in the meantime, Williams has 'been in the playbook the whole time.'

    Huddle Up: It's looking like the No. 7 overall draft pick in this past April's draft will be ready to make his debut in Week 6, though it's tough to gauge what role he'll be used in and how many snaps he'll get in his first contest as a pro. There's no denying Williams' immense talent, but with Keenan Allen and Tyrell Williams ahead of him, not to mention having to play alongside two talented tight ends, there may not be many looks to Williams out of the gate.

  • Posted: 10/11/2017 3:58pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 11.

    Huddle Up: Williams is expected to make his NFL debut in Week 6, but owners should check on his status later in the week. He probably will be eased into the lineup, so owners can avoid him this week but he should have value during the second half of the season.

  • Posted: 10/8/2017 6:24am ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) is expected to make his NFL debut in Week 6 against the Oakland Raiders, provided that he doesn't suffer any setbacks during the practice sessions leading up to the game, according to multiple league sources.

    Huddle Up: Williams was a limited practice participant this week but has already been ruled out for Week 5's game against the New York Giants. He's worth stashing in the majority of seasonal fantasy leagues although it's uncertain if he will see a limited number of snaps in his first game.

  • Posted: 10/6/2017 2:49pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 6, but has been ruled out for Week 5.

  • Posted: 10/4/2017 5:17pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 4.

    Huddle Up: Williams has been a limited participant for the past few weeks but is not ready for a full practice yet. He probably will be able to play in the near future but does not have much fantasy value at this point.

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 29, and has been ruled out for Week 4.

  • Posted: 9/28/2017 3:52pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Williams has been working his way back from a back injury and may have a chance to play this week. He probably would receive limited snaps if he is active and can be avoided in leagues this week.

  • Posted: 9/27/2017 3:57pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 27.

    Huddle Up: Williams may have a chance to play in Week 4, so owners should check on his status later in the week. He may be eased back into the offense and probably can be avoided in all fantasy leagues if he is active.

  • Posted: 9/22/2017 6:49pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) is improving every practice but not yet facing contact, head coach Anthony Lynn said Friday, Sept. 22. 'Mike's getting better every single day,' Lynn said. 'He's running full speed, changing direction.'

    Huddle Up: Williams has the size to make an immediate impact in the red zone, so continue to stash him if you can afford to give up the roster spot. If he's available in your league, your window to grab him could close in the next week or two.

  • Posted: 9/22/2017 1:48pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 22, but has been ruled out for Week 3.

  • Posted: 9/21/2017 4:29pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: Williams is close to being active but may sit out one more game before he is cleared to play. He can be on fantasy rosters, but owners should not expect a big contribution from him until the second half of the season.

  • Posted: 9/15/2017 1:22pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 15, but has been ruled out for Week 2.

  • Posted: 9/7/2017 6:53pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) is currently 'catching balls, but he's not running routes full speed,' according to head coach Anthony Lynn.

    Huddle Up: Williams is slated to sit out at least the first few games of the new season, but it looks like he may beat his original timetable by a week or two. It is unknown how he'll fit into the fold right away, considering how much depth the Chargers have at wide receiver, but being the No. 7 overall pick from this past April's draft, he should have a sizable role at some point for the duration of the campaign.

  • Posted: 9/7/2017 5:31pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 7.

    Huddle Up: Williams is expected to miss the first few weeks of the season and should be avoided in all fantasy leagues for now.

  • Posted: 9/3/2017 9:01pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) is still 'maybe a couple weeks away' from returning to practice, general manager Tom Telesco said Sunday, Sept. 3.

    Huddle Up: The injury will likely make it tough for Williams to make much of an impact early in the season, and you can leave him on the waiver wire in standard formats. He needs to be owned in keeper formats because of his long-term potential.

  • Posted: 9/2/2017 11:43am ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list Saturday, Sept. 2, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Williams is still recovering from a back injury, so it is not known when he will be able to play. He may be eased into the offense since he missed training camp, which will hurt his fantasy value. He could be an option in the late rounds as a possible No. 5 receiver for owners.

  • Posted: 8/23/2017 7:23pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) can run full sprints and is ahead of schedule, according to head coach Anthony Lynn.

    Huddle Up: Williams probably will miss at least the first few games of the regular season but could return at some point in October. He will be behind several receivers on the depth chart when he returns but could have a bigger role in the second half of the season. Owners could consider selecting Williams in the late rounds of drafts if they have the roster space to stash him until he plays.
