View WR Fantasy Rankings »

What You Need to Know:

  • Williams (6'2, 179) posted a breakout 2021 season at Alabama (79-1,572-15).
  • Prior to ’21, he totaled only 15 catches in 2 seasons at Ohio State.
  • With ‘Bama, Williams ranked 5th in the nation in receiving yards; T-3rd in TDs.
  • He displayed elite speed, finishing ’21 with ~20 YPC and 4 scores of 70+ yards.
  • Williams’ market shares were solid at a premier program: 20.8% of the catches, 31.0% of the receiving yards and 31.3% of the receiving scores.
  • Come December, Williams suffered a left ACL tear. Of course, he wasn’t able to test at the Combine. Team surgeon Dr. Lyle Cain said he expected Williams to be fine for training camp, but admitted that “each team has their own process.”
  • Despite the injury, the Lions moved up 20 spots to land him in Round 1.
  • In early June, HC Dan Campbell said the following on Williams' training camp status: “I don’t see him being ready for training camp.I’m very hopeful, but I don’t see it.”
  • The possibility remains that Williams misses regular season games. A trip to the PUP list would cost him 4 games, and it’s possible Detroit plays it slow with their 1st rounder.
  • Detroit signed speedster DJ Chark in free agency. He barely played last year due to an ankle fracture, but he’s back to 100%.
  • Jared Goff returns for year 2 with the Lions. His suspect arm strength and conservative approach is a questionable fit for Williams, especially following an offseason that'll turn up minimal practice time.
  • According to Nick Baumgardner of The Athletic: "That rehab schedule might stretch on for a while. Not just through training camp but, perhaps, into a chunk of the season."

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

We love Williams’ long-term prospects. He dominated last year in the SEC, and his tape turns up some truly special speed and acceleration.

He doesn’t have the same bulk, but the athletic comparisons to Tyreek Hill are legit.

For 2022, though, he’s just an end-of-roster stash until his ACL fully heals.

Jameson Williams, WR DET

1:43pm EDT 8/28/22

Williams running, changing direction

Lions WR Jameson Williams (knee) posted video of himself running and changing direction at about three-quarters speed on Sunday. The rookie has already been placed on the Reserve Non-Football Injury list, which knocks him out for at least the first 4 games of the season. He doesn't seem particularly close to being full-go, so we're not expecting to see him even when first eligible in Week 5. But at least he's making tangible progress. Williams is just a bench stash in dynasty leagues and deep redraft leagues.

The Lions have moved WR Jameson Williams (knee) to the Reserve Non-Football-Injury list. That knocks the rookie out for at least the first 4 games of the season -- but it'll likely be longer than that before he makes his NFL debut. "The hope is he’ll be ready to play around midseason," NFL Network's Tom Pelissero tweeted. We currently project Williams to play 11 games this season.

Lions GM Brad Holmes says WR Jameson Williams will miss Week 1, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. He declined to give a public timetable beyond that, though. "We're going to be very smart with him," Holmes added. We don't know yet whether Williams will start the regular season on the PUP list, but Detroit has clearly indicated they'll be patient in activating him.

The Lions have declined to give a public timeline for WR Jameson Williams' return to the field, but it doesn't seem like it's coming soon. According to Nick Baumgardner of The Athletic: "That rehab schedule might stretch on for a while. Not just through training camp but, perhaps, into a chunk of the season." Williams looks like a strong candidate to open the regular season on the PUP list. Consider him no more than a late-round flyer for 2022 redraft leagues.

Lions WR Jameson Williams (knee) has been placed on the non-football injury list. He gets that designation, rather than PUP, because his injury happened before he was drafted. Recovering from a January ACL tear, Williams isn't expected to be ready for Week 1 and probably won't be a real factor before the 2nd half of the season.

Dynasty Write-up
Don’t look now, but this could be an explosive Lions offense with Williams joining D.J. Chark, Amon-Ra St. Brown, T.J. Hockenson and D’Andre Swift. That’s a lot of target competition for Williams. But the Lions clearly expect him to emerge as a #1 WR considering they traded up 20 spots in Round 1 to nab him. (Chark, by the way, is only signed for 2022.) Williams’ deep speed isn’t a great fit with QB Jared Goff. But Goff is cuttable next offseason if he doesn’t deliver in 2022. Williams, of course, is more of a long-term play as he rehabs his January 10 ACL tear.
