News: 4 days agoWilliams (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.
Spin: After suffering a setback with his ankle in his return to action Week 11, Williams will sit out this weekend and target a potential return to the lineup Week 13 against the Raiders. In Williams' absence this weekend, look for Keenan Allen and Joshua Palmer to headline the Chargers' wideout corps, with DeAndre Carter also in line to see added opportunities in the team's passing attack.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Williams enters 2022 fresh off a breakout campaign in which he posted his first-career top-30 fantasy campaign (12th), which landed him a pricey offseason contract extension. Williams saw more high-percentage targets last season, but still ranked among the top 15 receivers in yards per reception and end zone targets for the fourth consecutive season. One concern is that, after a hot start, Williams reverted to his pre-2021 usage and production. During Weeks 1-5, he had a 26% target share and was the No. 2 fantasy WR. After that, he saw a 19% share and was WR25. In total, he had eight top-20 fantasy outings, but was 40th or worse in his other eight games. Of course, Williams is one of standout QB Justin Herbert's top two targets in one of the league's best offenses. That keeps him in the WR2 discussion.
