2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
Rookie Mike Williams (6'4", 218) has a frame perfect for a quaerterback like Philip Rivers who loves to give his players a shot in one-on-one coverage. Williams joins the team with a similar athletic makeup to former Chargers receivers Malcom Floyd and Vincent Jackson, but with seemingly more upside. He scored 11 touchdowns in Clemson's National Championship season this past year, proving that he is one of the most dominant red zone threats to come into the league in quite some time.

Williams does need to work on his route running which could cause him to be more volatile and thus less valuable especially in PPR formats, but the big concern about him at the moment is his health. He's already dealing with a herniated disc in his back which has not allowed him time to acclimate himself with the offense, and particularly with Rivers. Be careful if he is still missing significant practice time in late-July or August. The talent is here, but the injuries are worrisome as he also suffered a neck injury in college that caused him to miss most of the 2015 season. He's arguably the top option among dynasty wide receivers this season, but Williams enters into a crowded offense with quite a few mouths to feed. He's likely the most physically skilled pass catcher in the offense, but he may struggle to show that early in his career until other players in this offense move on.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Chargers WR Mike Williams may play Week 6
Rookie could see the field against Raiders
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Oct 12, 11:45 am

Nearly six months after the Chargers drafted him No. 7 overall, Mike Williams is finally going to make his NFL debut. Maybe. Probably. “I think he’s very close,” Coach Anthony Lynn said Wednesday. “We’ll see at the end of the week where he’s at.” “I’m expecting to play,” Williams said. “I’m gonna practice hard, go through all the plays. Whatever decision the coaches make, I’m going to be ready for it.” (Orange County Register)

FFToday's Take: Williams remains off the fantasy radar given his back injury and the plethora of weapons in the Chargers offense. Still, it would be nice to see the rookie get some playing time. He's a player to keep your eye on in the coming weeks.

Injury Mike Williams eyeing October debut?
First-round WR making progress from back injury
By: Doug Orth | Mon Aug 14, 7:45 pm

The Chargers are eyeing an October debut for first-round pick WR Mike Williams. The Clemson product, who is recovering from a herniated disc in his back from the spring, has been sprinting on the treadmill and on the practice field. By all accounts, he's making solid progress as the team has used rest and rehab, rather than a surgical option. Los Angeles is also being cautious. That's why, according to several sources with direct knowledge of the situation, the plan is for Williams to play in October. How it happens will depend on what unfolds over the next three weeks until it's time to make a roster decision on Sept. 2. ( - Ian Rapoport)

FFToday's Take: Williams suffered the injury in the team's first spring practice and has been sidelined ever since, so there is little chance he is going to be able to make a rookie-year impact. With that said, his size (6-4, 218) will make for an inviting red zone target on an offense that should be among the best in the league. He can go undrafted in most leagues, but he is one to keep an eye on if he can start playing by October.
