Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams caught three passes for 83 yards against the Detroit Lions in Week 2. He was targeted five times during the game.
Huddle Up: Williams was expected to have a limited role in the game because of his knee injury but was able to have a solid outing this week. He should be more involved in the passing game in Week 3 and can be a No. 3 fantasy receiver.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) showed improvement in practice later in the week and is likely to be used in red-zone situations for Week 2's game against the Detroit Lions, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Williams had been listed as questionable on the injury report after taking part in only one of three practice sessions during the week on a limited basis. He is a risky fantasy option due to the likelihood that he will see fewer offensive snaps than normal, so owners may want to look for safer alternatives.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) will be a game-time decision for the Week 2 game, according to head coach Anthony Lynn.
Huddle Up: The Chargers play in one of the early games, so fantasy players will have plenty of options in case Williams is ruled out. Williams could be limited if he plays, which would make him a risky fantasy option. Fantasy players may just want to keep Williams on the bench this week.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) did not participate in practice for a second straight day Thursday, Sept. 12.
Huddle Up: It's not looking good for Williams, who went down late in Week 1. With Williams and Hunter Henry both likely to be out for Week 2 against the Detroit Lions, expect a heavy dose of Keenan Allen and Austin Ekeler in the passing game. Travis Benjamin may also be worth a look as a high-upside play in deeper leagues.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) suffered a knee injury in Week 1 against the Indianapolis Colts and he is questionable to return. He had two grabs for 29 yards on three targets before departing.
Huddle Up: It will be a disappointing fantasy line for Williams even if he is able to return. He'll look for much better results in Week 2 on the road against the Detroit Lions if he isn't injured too badly.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams says he is preparing to take on an expanded role in 2019. 'We lost a big weapon in Tyrell (Williams), (so) a lot of people in the room have to step up,' Williams said Friday, June 14, on the the final day of the team's minicamp. 'I feel like me being the player that I am, I feel like I can do that... I feel like the role is going to change. I feel I'm going to get a lot more opportunities than I did last year. A lot more balls coming my way. I'm looking forward to it.'
Huddle Up: Williams was uber-productive last season as an NFL sophomore with 10 of his 43 receptions resulting in touchdowns and a league-best 83.7 percent of his catches going for first downs. Expect more targets and receptions for Williams this season but do expect a TD rate regression. He's a solid WR3.
