Mike Williams, Chargers reach deal before deadline

Mike Williams will be tagged if not deal is reached by 4 PM

According to Jordan Schultz, the Chargers and star WR Mike Williams are motivated to get a long-term extension done. If nothing gets done, the wide expectation is for Williams to get tagged - at $18.5M for the 2022 season.

Fantasy Impact

Williams will be the second WR this offseason to continue to play on the franchise tag if no deal is reached by the 4 PM deadline on Tuesday. Buccaneers Chris Godwin is the other one. If the team does decide to tag the veteran wideout, it'll cost them $18.5 million this season. During the 2021-2022 season, Williams had 76 catches for 1,146 yards and scored 9 touchdowns in 16 games.

Mike Williams could get WR1 money, per beat writer

Jeff Howe of The Athletic believes that free agent wide receiver Mike Williams "will get paid like a No. 1 because that’s what top-of-the-market receivers get."

Fantasy Impact

Williams recently wrapped up a career year with the Chargers in which he caught 76 passes for 1,146 yards and nine touchdowns. He managed to post strong stat lines despite playing behind alpha receiver Keenan Allen and also losing touches to dual-threat back Austin Ekeler. The Chargers will certainly try to re-sign Williams this offseason, but he is expected to have a vast market. As Howe hinted at, it would not be surprising to see a bidding war break out, leaving Williams as the recipient of a big paycheck. Depending on his landing spot, he could head into 2022 as a high-end WR2 for fantasy purposes.

Mike Williams racks up 119 yards, one score in Chargers loss

WR Mike Williams caught nine of his 17 targets for 119 yards and one touchdown in the Chargers 35-32 loss against the Raiders on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Williams ended his 2021 campaign on a high-note after an up-and-down year. He caught the game-tying touchdown in the 4th-quarter as time expired. His 17 targets were five more than the next highest player (15). Williams has always produced when he gets peppered with targets, as proven by this outing. It was a contract year for Williams, and it's unclear if the Chargers will offer his a new deal. If not, he will draw interest from many team.

Mike Williams catches 45-yard touchdown in Chargers win

WR Mike Williams caught three of his four targets for 63 yards and a touchdown in the Chargers 34-13 win against the Broncos on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

The 45-yard touchdown saved Williams day as he didn't do much with his other targets. He did lead the team in receiving yards on the afternoon and showcased his talent on the deep touchdown pass. Williams will look to build on the momentum next week against the Raiders.
