Mike Williams restructures contract Thursday

Mike Williams and the Chargers have agreed to a restructured contract that will free $5.46 million in cap space.

Fantasy Impact

With the contract restructures of Williams and Keenan Allen, the Chargers have cleared over $14 million in cap space. Williams registered 895 yards and four touchdowns on 63 receptions in 13 games last season and should factor in heavily to the Chargers’ offense.

Mike Williams (back) suffers fracture, expected to miss several weeks

Mike Williams (back) suffered a small non-surgical fracture that was not found in his initial X-ray and MRI, according to Lindsey Thiry of The Athletic. He will likely miss two to three weeks.

Fantasy Impact

Williams injured his back while playing in the Chargers' Week 18 game. Notably, Los Angeles had already secured a playoff start, so head coach Brandon Staley's decision to play his starters has drawn criticism in the aftermath of Williams' injury. For the time being, the Chargers will head into the playoffs with Keenan Allen, Joshua Palmer, and DeAndre Carter leading the wide receiver position.

Mike Williams (back) ruled out Saturday

Mike Williams (back) has been ruled out ahead of Saturday’s AFC Wild Card matchup between the Los Angeles Chargers and Jacksonville Jaguars.

Fantasy Impact

Mike Williams doesn’t practice, listed questionable

According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, WR Mike Williams (back), who did not practice all week, is listed as questionable for Saturday’s playoff game. A game-time decision.

Fantasy Impact

Williams’ results on his back injury came back negative and he was diagnosed with a contusion, but even though he was expected to practice, he did not. If Williams plays, he adds a wrinkle to the Chargers’ passing attack they don’t have without him. It’s impossible to tell if he will play or not, but if he misses time, WR Josh Palmer will be the team’s WR2 and DeAndre Carter will see more action.

Mike Williams expected to return to practice

According to The Athletic’s Daniel Popper, WR Mike Williams’ MRI came back negative. He has a back contusion and is expected to return to practice soon.

Fantasy Impact

Williams’ return is big news for the Chargers offense as his big-play ability keeps defenses honest. Facing the Jaguars, the Chargers should have their full array of weapons available for QB Justin Herbert. However, which day Williams returns to practice should be monitored to ensure his availability.
