2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
At 6'4" and nearly 220 lbs, Los Angeles' Mike Williams has the body type to be the NFL's next top-level physical beast at the wide receiver. Health has been a concern, as he broke his neck while scoring a touchdown on Clemson's first offensive drive in 2015, then injured his back in training camp as a rookie for the Chargers in 2017 which kept him off the field until Week 6.

Once he was on the field, Williams really didn't do much to live up to the No.7 overall pick. He made just 11 total receptions on the season and didn't even catch half of the passes that came his way. He dropped four passes despite being targeted just 23 times - a horrendous number that simply has to go down if he hopes to be even a contributor at the NFL level.

Williams' 2017 is now in the past, however, and he's had a full offseason to prepare his body physically and get ready for his second professional season. There's optimism around camp that Williams will take a big step forward and potentially become the team's primary red zone weapon. Williams' big body does make him difficult to defend for most cornerbacks but his lack of explosiveness and shockingly low vertical jump also don't exactly scream "jump ball monster" at the NFL level.

Still, there's value to be had for Williams, particularly in dynasty leagues. Williams was one of the top draft picks in dynasty leagues in 2017 and his value has sunk dramatically after his ugly rookie season. Physically, though, not much has changed. He's fully recovered from his back injury and his opportunity might actually be better now, at least for 2018, with Hunter Henry vacating red zone targets. If the Chargers do commit to giving him opportunities in the red zone, there's a real chance that Williams could be one of the top touchdown scorers in the league at the position. Unfortunately, with Allen and other more established pass catchers still on the roster, Williams' realistic upside for targets is not high, so he's going to be a touchdown-or-bust type player in most weeks. That works for best ball formats but it's not exactly great for standard seasonal redraft formats.

Injury Keenan Allen misses second straight practice
Knee injury
By: Doug Orth | Thu Sep 27, 8:10 pm

WR Keenan Allen (knee) was not on the field today for the part of practice open to the media. (LA Times - Jeff Miller)

FFToday's Take: Although HC Anthony Lynn said the team is just being cautious with Allen, back-to-back missed practices are not a good sign, although Friday's participation should give owners some clue as to whether or not they need to consider other options. Mike Williams and Tyrell Williams would see their value increase in a big way if Allen has to sit, while Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler would probably see even more work out of the backfield.
