How often can you find a wide receiver being drafted outside the top 40 who's capable of posting WR1-type numbers? Williams fits that bill. He already has a 1,000-yard season on his resume. He also has a 10-touchdown season on it. He also happens to have one of the brightest young stars as his quarterback with little else on the depth chart outside of Keenan Allen. Health has been the biggest question mark for Williams, but once you're outside the top-40 wide receivers, there's hardly guaranteed production on the board, so take the upside.

Mike Williams will be manning the X receiver position in Chargers' offense

Daniel Popper of the Athletic reports that Chargers offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi is excited about Mike Williams' skill set and will be featured as the team's X receiver.

Fantasy Impact

Williams has consistently been inconsistent over his first three seasons in the league. Fantasy managers have experienced him scoring 10 touchdowns on just 43 catches as a sophomore. In his third year, he broke the 1,000-yard barrier on only 49 catches. The former Tiger is a big play waiting to happen, evidenced by his career 16.7 yard per reception average. Unfortunately, former Chargers quarterback, Philip Rivers didn't have the arm strength to take those big play shots down the field consistently and Williams has been unable to stay healthy. However, with the big-arm of the reigning Offensive Rookie of the Year, Justin Herbert, the four-year pro finally has a quarterback who can take advantage of his "go up and get it" skill set. With Hunter Henry leaving in free agency, there is even less target competition in Los Angeles, increasing the likelihood the former top-10 draft pick will get more opportunity then he's seen thus far in his career. He's never had as much incentive to have a productive season as he does in 2021. With the Chargers declining to pick-up his fifth year option, he'll become a free agent at season's end. A great season could lead to a big, new contract. Currently ranked as the WR50, Williams has a great chance to solidly outplay his ADP and provide significant value to his drafters. He has WR3 upside in what should be an explosive offense.
