Free-agent WR Tyrell Williams (Raiders) agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Detroit Lions Wednesday, March 3, worth as much as $6.2 million, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Williams has struggled with injuries over the last few seasons but likely will have a solid role in the Lions passing game. He has the chance to be a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver in most fantasy leagues.

Updating a previous story, Las Vegas Raiders WR Tyrell Williams was released Wednesday, Feb. 24.
Huddle Up: Williams didn't play last season due to injury so there's no production to be redistributed. WR Nelson Agholor is set for unrestricted free agency, so Henry Ruggs III, Hunter Renfrow and Bryan Edwards are in line to be the top options in the Raiders' passing game next season.

Las Vegas Raiders WR Tyrell Williams will be released at the start of the new league year, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Williams missed the entire 2020 season because of an injury and did not live up to the big contract he signed two years ago. He is a solid receiver when healthy and should receive interest from multiple teams. Williams likely will have some fantasy value in 2021.

Las Vegas Raiders WR Tyrell Williams may be a cap casualty this season because the team would save $11.6 million in salary cap space if they release him.
Huddle Up: Williams has struggled with injuries since joining the Raiders and may be looking for a new team this offseason. He can be a decent No. 3 receiver for a team and has a chance to be a late-round fantasy option depending on his situation.

Las Vegas Raiders WR Tyrell Williams (shoulder) was placed on season-ending injured reserve Tuesday, Sept. 1.
Huddle Up: The absence of Williams could open up a big role for WR Nelson Agholor, who has been impressing in training camp. Rookies Henry Ruggs III and Bryan Edwards could also enjoy larger roles.

Las Vegas Raiders WR Tyrell Williams (shoulder) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Aug. 26.
Huddle Up: Williams is going to try to play with a torn labrum in his shoulder but may not be able to finish the season. Fantasy players can keep an eye on his recovery to see if he will be able to play, but they should not count on him this season.

Las Vegas Raiders WR Tyrell Williams (shoulder) has a torn labrum in his shoulder but will try to play through the injury after a few weeks of rehab, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to keep an eye on the situation because Williams may not be able to play long with the injury. He will be a risky option in fantasy leagues and could be passed over if other receivers are available.

Las Vegas Raiders WR Tyrell Williams (feet) is 'over the hump' with his plantar fasciitis issue but is continuing to do daily maintenance.
Huddle Up: Luckily, Williams hasn't missed any meaningful offseason work due to the issue. He's projected as the starter opposite rookie Henry Ruggs III, but there are plenty of bodies competing for targets with Hunter Renfrow, Nelson Agholor and Bryan Edwards also in the mix. Williams shouldn't be taken higher than a WR4.

Oakland Raiders WR Tyrell Williams (foot) recently told head coach Jon Gruden that he was close to 100 percent recovered from the plantar fasciitis he dealt with last season, Gruden said Thursday, Feb. 27.
Huddle Up: Williams started 2019 on fire with a touchdown catch and at least 11.9 PPR points in each of his first five games played but only reached those standards once in his final nine contests as his foot issues really began to take their toll. Don't be surprised if the Raiders add another wideout this offseason and Williams becomes more of a WR3/4 fantasy option.
