News: 1 day agoWilliams (non injury-related) practiced fully Thursday, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.
Spin: Williams missed practice Wednesday for a non-injury reason, but his return to a full session Thursday indicates that he's good to go for Sunday's game against the Patriots. Williams, who caught three of his five targets for 26 yards in this past Sunday's loss to the Bills, has been a hit-or-miss fantasy option over his last few games, but overall his floor is decent, as the wideout has averaged 3.2 catches and 52.9 yards to go along with four TDs in 10 games to date.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Slowly but surely, Williams' pro career continues to progress. The 2017 first-round pick barely played as a rookie, posting a 43-664-10 receiving line in a situational role in 2018. He followed that up with a 49-1,001-2 line as a full-time player in 2019. Last season, Williams paced the NFL in aDOT (17.3) and YPR (20.4) and ranked fourth in YPT (11.0), but dealt with the worst luck in the league in the touchdown department. Williams posted a 6.9 OTD thanks to 11 end-zone targets (tied for eighth most), but scored only twice. The 25-year-old is a strong bet for more touchdowns, but the departure of Philip Rivers hurts his stock. Williams is a more appealing flex choice in non-PPR leagues.
