News: 5 days agoWilliams caught four of his eight targets for 39 yards in Sunday's 28-13 loss to the Broncos.
Spin: Justin Herbert repeatedly tried to connect with Williams on a number of deep throws, but the end result saw the big-bodied target held under 50 yards for the fourth time in the last six games. After a blazing start to the season which appeared to highlight a rejuvenated Williams, the Chargers have essentially transitioned away from the 27-year-old as a top target, instead turning to Keenan Allen as the main focal point.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Williams is entering his fifth NFL season but has yet to deliver a top-30 fantasy campaign. The seventh-overall pick back in 2017, Williams has been a mainstay opposite Keenan Allen the past three seasons but has struggled for target volume (he has yet to clear 91 in a season) and consistent TD production (10 TDs in 2018, but seven total the past two seasons). Williams has settled in as a de facto situational deep threat, having ranked no lower than ninth in aDOT and 11th in YPR each of the past three seasons. The 26-year-old was limited to four top-35 fantasy weeks last season. Perhaps Williams will get rolling in Los Angeles' new scheme and in Justin Herbert's second season, but he's best drafted for your bench in the late rounds.
