2022 Outlook
Depth Chart
Entering the final year of his rookie deal, Williams picked a good time to have his best season, posting 76 receptions (well above his previous high of 49), 1,146 yards, and 9 TDs. That was enough to earn the former seventh overall pick a three-year, $60 million deal to stay in Los Angeles. It wasn't always smooth sailing for Williams in 2021, though, as after topping 80 yards four times in his first five games while scoring six times the Clemson product would score just once in his next nine with only two outings of more than 65 yards receiving.

While the team will doubtless be hoping for better consistency this year, Williams is bound to be more volatile than Allen just based on his role as more of a downfield threat. At 6-foot-4, 218 pounds, the sixth-year pro has the size to outfight defensive backs for the ball in contested catch situations along with the speed to get behind them. He feels slightly overvalued if you're counting on him a low-end WR2, but if you can grab Williams as your third receiver there's certainly enough upside there for him to produce as a No.2.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Mike Williams downgraded to Out
Won't travel with the team
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Jan 13, 12:09 pm

#Chargers WR Mike Williams, who was previously listed as questionable with a back injury, will remain in Los Angeles to continue receiving treatment and has been downgraded to out for Saturday night's game in Jacksonville. (Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Playing Williams in a meaningless Week 18 game against the Broncos has come back to bite HC Brandon Staley. Williams injured his back and will now miss the Chargers Wildcard game against Jacksonville. In his absence, we should see an increase in opportunity for Josh Palmer who had four games of double-digit targets during the regular season while Williams and Keenan Allen battled injuries.


Injury Mike Williams misses practice Thursday, Questionable
Back injury
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Jan 12, 4:16 pm

#Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) did not practice today and is questionable for Saturday. The team will give him up to game-time to be able to go vs. the #Jaguars. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Williams injured his back (spasms) in a meaningless Week 18 game against the Broncos and is now in danger of missing the team's Wildcard game against Jacksonville. If he sits, that will move Josh Palmer into a more prominent role and be a viable DFS and playoff league option this week.


Injury Mike Williams dealing with back bruise
Left early in team's Week 18 loss to the Broncos
By: Doug Orth | Mon Jan 9, 5:00 pm

Brandon Staley said Mike Williams' MRI showed no fracture or muscle injury in his back. He has a contusion, Staley said. And Staley expects Williams to return to practice at some point this week. (The Athletic - Daniel Popper)

FFToday's Take: While this news bodes well for Williams' 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. Expect Justin Herbert to rely heavily on Austin Ekeler and Keenan Allen yet again versus the Jaguars since it appears Williams won't be close to 100 percent. Josh Palmer may see a few snaps as a result.


Injury Mike Williams back in action for Week 14
Off the injury report
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Dec 9, 4:39 pm

WR Mike Williams (ankle) is off the injury report and expected to play Sunday vs. Dolphins. (Daniel Popper on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Williams has been battling a high ankle sprain ever since Week 8. He returned in Week 11 but only played one quarter before aggravating the injury. He'll give it a go again here in Week 14 against the Dolphins in the highest total (53.5) game of the week. Him being back in the lineup makes downgrades Josh Palmer to a Flex option.


Injury Mike Williams suffers another ankle injury
Aggravation of earlier high-ankle sprain
By: Doug Orth | Tue Nov 22, 1:30 am

WR Mike Williams had a "re-aggravation" of his high ankle sprain last night, per Brandon Staley. Staley said team will "find out a lot more in the next couple days" but it is not considered "a significant re-injury." (The Athletic - Daniel Popper)

FFToday's Take: Williams lasted all of six snaps in Week 11 after sitting out three weeks (missing two games) with his Week 7 high-ankle sprain. He won't have the benefit of a bye week this time around, so there is a good chance Williams does not return until the fantasy playoffs if the Chargers learn their lesson and are more cautious with him this time. Josh Palmer had a huge game in his stead and should remain a viable WR3 option in most 12-team leagues.


Injury Mike Williams, Keenan Allen listed as Questionable
Both practiced in full on Friday
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 18, 4:18 pm

Mike Williams (ankle) and Keenan Allen (hamstring) are both QUESTIONABLE for Sunday night vs. Chiefs. Both receivers practiced fully today. (Daniel Popper on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It sounds like both Chargers' receivers are trending towards playing Sunday night against the Chiefs. Perhaps we'll get further confirmation on Sunday morning. Allen has been out since Week 1 while Williams last saw the field in Week 7 against Seattle.


Injury Chargers could get top two WRs back in Week 11
Keenan Allen, Mike Williams to practice soon
By: Doug Orth | Tue Nov 15, 1:00 am

WR Mike Williams (ankle) and WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) will be back in practice this week, Brandon Staley said. (The Athletic - Daniel Popper)

FFToday's Take: It will come as no surprise to fantasy managers that Allen has played only two games, one of which was an early exit in Week 4 - the last time he was in action. Williams has been sidelined since Week 7 with a high-ankle sprain. The Chargers have been wise to take it easy with their receivers and should see the payoff over the remainder of the favorable receiver schedule.


Injury Keenan Allen still battling hamstring issue
Got worse during the bye week
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Nov 2, 3:55 pm

Keenan Allen says his hamstring got worse during the bye week when training. He says next time he goes in a game it won’t be on a snap count, that it will be all or nothing, with his hamstring absolutely ready to go. He said he felt great going into Week 7, but not 100%. (Lindsey Thiry on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Allen injured his hamstring in Week 1 and still can't get over the injury. The Chargers wide receiver missed practice on Wednesday and it looks like he's going to miss Week 9. Already down Mike Williams, Joshua Palmer, DeAndre Carter, Michael Bandy and Jason Moore and next up on the depth chart.
