Fantasy Impact:

The speedy Williams has shown glimmers or excellence in his three years as a pro after being selected seventh overall in 2017. While his targets, receptions, and yards have gone up in each of his three seasons, he struggled to find the end zone last year, scoring just twice after catching 10 touchdowns in his sophomore campaign. His 6.0 targets per game in 2019 were good for 36th among wide receivers and his air yards were 38th. There are a lot of weapons on the Chargers roster, but Williams should sit comfortably behind Keenan Allen as the team's number two wide receiver. Our experts have Williams as the 40th ranked wide receiver, but if the Chargers can find some consistent quarterback play between Tyrod Taylor and Justin Herbert, and Williams is able to find the end zone he can definitely outperform his ADP.
