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

Williams scores 1st TD

Lions rookie WR Jameson Williams scored his 1st NFL TD from 41 yards out in Sunday's win over the Vikings. It was his only catch among 2 targets, so we wouldn't go adding Williams to fantasy football rosters off this performance. WR Josh Reynolds and WR D.J. Chark claimed the team's other 2 TD receptions. Reynolds totaled 5 catches for 51 yards among 6 targets.

Lions WR Jameson Williams (knee) is active for today’s game vs. the Jaguars. The rookie is expected to play limited snaps in his NFL debut, leaving him as an option only as a DFS tournament flier. But Williams does add some upside to QB Jared Goff’s fantasy profile.

Lions WR Jameson Williams will be on a "very limited snap count" in his NFL debut against the Jaguars today, according to NFL Network. That's not a surprise considering Detroit has been cautious with Williams' return from a torn ACL all along. The rookie is capable of taking any touch to the house, but he can't be trusted in Week 13 fantasy lineups.

Lions WR Jameson Williams (knee) has been activated from the Reserve/NFI list, putting him on track to make his NFL debut vs. the Jaguars on Sunday. Williams is nearly 11 months removed from tearing his ACL in last year's National Championship. The Lions have seemingly played it safe with Williams' return, so he should be close to 100%. A healthy Williams will add rare, field-tilting speed to Detroit's offense. We're expecting him to be on some type of snap count in his debut, so he'd be a flier in fantasy lineups this week. But Williams certainly has a chance to be a fantasy factor down the stretch.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that "there is a good chance" the Lions will activate WR Jameson Williams for Week 13 if he makes it through that practice week "unscathed." The rookie reportedly didn't take on "full-speed" practices this week but will next and has been at "top speed" in his drills for rehab. Williams is OK to stash, but he's not going to be startable in Week 13 fantasy football lineups. We'll see how quickly he can ramp up playing time and target share beyond that.

Dynasty Write-up
Williams barely played this past season as he rehabbed an ACL tear. When on the field, though, he showed some of the speed that made him a special college prospect. A resurgent Jared Goff is encouraging, although it remains to be seen if he’s Detroit’s long-term QB.
