Chargers WR Mike Williams caught only 2 of 6 targets for 17 yards in Week 6. CB Patrick Surtain shadowed Williams for most of the night, and that matchup proved difficult for the veteran WR. This dud followed 2 straight outings of 120+ yards, but of course, it’s not totally out of character. Williams posted games of 10 and 15 yards over the first 3 weeks. Keenan Allen (hamstring) should return over the next week or so, helping keep Williams’ boom-or-bust profile intact. Sunday turns up a bounce-back spot vs. Seattle.
Chargers WR Mike Williams has been diagnosed with a torn left ACL and will miss the rest of the 2023 season, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The timing of the injury at least gives Williams a good chance to be ready for the start of the 2024 campaign. He turns 29 in about a week and is officially signed with the Chargers for next season. But his contract currently carries a $32.5 million cap hit. Williams will need to restructure that deal to remain with the team. His absence for the rest of this season leaves behind big opportunity. Williams averaged 8.7 targets on a 21.3% share through three games. WR Josh Palmer is the better immediate bet for production with Williams out. But first-round rookie WR Quentin Johnston is the higher-upside longer-term bet. WR Keenan Allen, RB Austin Ekeler (once healthy), and TE Gerald Everett should also see a bit more volume without Williams.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the Chargers fear WR Mike Williams may have suffered a "potentially" season-ending left knee injury in Sunday's win over the Vikings. He'll have an MRI today to confirm the diagnosis. Losing Williams would present opportunity to rookie WR Quentin Johnston and third-year WR Josh Palmer. Each will be worth a look on the waiver wire this week, with Johnston carrying more upside.
Chargers WR Mike Williams rode a cart to the bus with his left leg in a brace after Sunday's win over the Vikings, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Williams is scheduled for a Monday MRI, but this obviously looks like a serious injury. We should learn more tomorrow.
Chargers WR Mike Williams suffered an apparent left knee injury in the third quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Vikings. He needed a couple of trainers to help him off the field. Stay tuned for an update.
Chargers WR Mike Williams is kicking inside to the slot more often in OC Kellen Moore's offense, according to The Athletic's Daniel Popper. “People are going to have game plans and matchups associated with where he lines up,” Moore said of Williams. “The more you can line him up in different spots, it just makes it more challenging for other teams to focus on him.” Popper writes that, "the results have been impressive thus far." Consider this a reminder that, despite the addition of first-round rookie WR Quentin Johnston, Williams will remain a big part of this high-scoring Chargers offense. He's a value at his WR26 ADP.
