Mike Williams (knee) misses practice, officially listed as questionable

Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams was absent from practice for a third consecutive day due to a knee injury. He’s officially questionable for this weekend’s contest against the Ravens.

Fantasy Impact:

Williams has not been ruled out, but the fact that he was unable to practice at all this week is not very promising. If he does play, fantasy managers can fire him up as a low-end WR1.

What the Experts are Saying

Ladies and gentlemen, the WR1 in all of fantasy football through five weeks, Mike Williams! The off-season buzz surrounding Williams and the talk that targets find the X-receiver in this offense proved to be 100% true and Williams has been the unquestioned steal of fantasy drafts. Even with a dud performance in week four, Williams is averaging 20.1 fantasy points per game and he’s helping carry fantasy rosters to victories each and every week. Based on pre-snap alignment, Williams is expected to draw coverage from Anthony Averett this week and that’s a massive advantage for Williams and the Chargers passing game. Expect another big performance here from Williams this week and he can be viewed as a low-end WR1 with massive upside.
