WR - FA
Week 13 Outlook
The Lions have waived WR Tyrell Williams from Reserve/Injured with an Injury Settlement.
Williams' career with the Lions comes to an end after just two receptions and 14 yards. He has been recovering from a concussion since Week 1.
Per the Detroit Lions, WR Tyrell Williams (concussion) will be placed on IR for the time being and will miss at least three games.
Williams suffered a concussion for the Lions back in Week 1 and has since not been available for the team. With Detroit placing Williams on IR this means he will at least miss the next three games and then be re-evaluated to see how he is progressing. During Williams' absence fellow WR Quintez Cephus has stepped up for Detroit and is expected to continue to be a focal point in the offense in addition to TE T.J. Hockenson and RB's D'Andre Swift and Jamaal Williams. It is worth monitoring if the Lions add another WR in the next few days which could be telling of how they see William's long term availability.
Detroit Lions wide receiver Tyrell Williams has been ruled out for Week 3 against the Baltimore Ravens.
Williams is still in concussion protocol, and the early rule out suggests that he is not close to being cleared. Every concussion is a unique situation, so there is no timetable for his return to the team. Quintez Cephus, Kalif Raymond, and Amon-Ra St. Brown will continue to operate as the Lions top three receivers.
Lions WR Tyrell Williams (concussion) has been ruled out for Monday's Week 2 matchup against the Packers.
As expected. Detroit will turn to the trio of Kalif Raymond, Amon-Ra St. Brown, and Quintez Cephus to play in three-wide sets against Green Bay. None of them are recommended fantasy plays.
Per Lions' senior writer Tim Twentyman, WR Tyrell Williams continues to remain in the concussion protocol and his availability for Monday's game vs the Packers is up in the air as reported by HC Dan Campbell.
Williams remains in the concussion protocol for the Lions after taking a helmet-to-helmet shot in the team's Week 1 loss to the 49ers. If Williams is unavailable as alluded to by Campbell then that should mean more opportunities for younger WR's Quintez Cephus and Amon-Ra St. Brown. However, it's also very possible that the Lions continue to rely on the passing attack via TE T.J. Hockenson and RB's D'Andre Swift and Jamaal Williams as seen in Week 1. More likely the latter trio will receive a small bump in volume for fantasy football purposes as the WR group for Detroit remains a question mark.
