WR - LV - OUT
Week 3 Outlook
The Raiders have placed WR Tyrell Williams on the injured reserve, officially ending his season.
Williams suffered a torn labrum in his right shoulder and was placed on the IR Tuesday. His season is officially over. Look for Bryan Edwards to replace Williams and be involved in three-receiver sets along with Henry Ruggs and Hunter Renfrow. Williams will undergo surgery and look to be a 100 percent for 2021.
Raiders WR Tyrell Williams has suffered a torn labrum in his shoulder and is being considered week-to-week.
It’ll be a big task ahead for Williams to be ready for Week 1 of the regular season, but he’ll give it a try, per sources. Bryan Edwards and Henry Ruggs III will benefit the most from Williams’ absence in practice, and both should present solid value at your upcoming fantasy draft.
Tyrell Williams may not be the featured wide receiver in Las Vegas, per Kyle Martin of Raiders.com.
Williams is revitalized and "over the hump" with his plantar facscitis issues from last season. He "might not be the featured receiver on offense, but he's a vital piece of Gruden's unit and his absence last season was felt," Martin added. Williams will compete with Hunter Renfrow, Bryan Edwards and Henry Ruggs for targets. The 28-year-old may be over his plantar fasciitis injury, but his role in the Raiders' offense is unclear. Williams is currently 75th among all wideouts in the latest expert consensus rankings.
Tyrell Williams says he's "over the hump" with his plantar fasciitis issues from last season.
Williams got off to a hot start last year before his feet problems popped up. His plan is to do daily maintenance to keep the soreness away. Opportunity might be a bigger issue for Williams' fantasy value than his health, however. The Raiders drafted Henry Ruggs and Bryan Edwards back in April, which will limit Williams' target share in this offense.
Tyrell Williams was not targeted in the Raiders' 16-15 loss to the Broncos Sunday.
Williams was not targeted Sunday and heads into the 2020 season with an uncertain fantasy future after an uneven 2019 campaign.
