WR - LAC
Mike Williams had the opportunity to take his talents elsewhere this offseason in free agency, but decided to stay in Los Angeles with quarterback Justin Herbert. Hard to argue with the choice to sign a three-year deal worth $60M attached to a young superstar quarterback, especially when that quarterback fueled a career-year.
He stormed out the gate in 2021 as the WR2 in fantasy through the first five weeks of the season, averaging 94.2 receiving yards and 1.2 receiving touchdowns per game.
Big Mike finished the season as the WR23 in fantasy points per game despite cooling off considerably in the later weeks in addition to leaving a boatload of touchdown production on the table.
He finished sixth in end-zone targets (16) but caught only five for touchdowns.
With positive TD regression on his side, Williams looks like a sneaky candidate to repeat his WR12 overall finish in the half-point scoring format.
It seems like many analysts are high on Williams this year after setting career-highs in targets (129), receptions (76), and yardage (1,146) to go along with nine touchdowns, but I can't find any sharp players that will buy him in dynasty leagues. He finally made it through a season relatively healthy, playing 16 of 17 games, but there was a dramatic drop in production after week 5. He was the PPR WR2 through the first five weeks, but the WR28 in weeks 6 through 18.
Elite big-play threat tied to one of top arm talents in the NFL - 7 games with 80+ receiving yards was 5th-most in 2021
Return to LAC on a HUGE deal is big for MWilly - prob will never regain that early 2021 magic (top-5 WR in fantasy), but being No.2 option for one of the game's best young QBs is still a good place to be
