Isaiah Sirois
FantasyPros
I absolutely love Mike Williams with Justin Herbert under center. Williams has the size and speed to get open deep, and Herbert has a cannon for an arm. The rookie quarterback has already said that the ball is going to Williams whenever the receiver is in single coverage. While there's a chance that Wiliams gets game-scripted out if the Chargers pull too far ahead, he's a fantastic high-upside play at WR3 or flex. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Williams carries a ton of question marks heading into this contest because we simply don't know what his involvement in the offense is going to be with Herbert behind center and Allen on the field. Williams' skillset matches up with Herbert's perfectly, so I'm optimistic that these two can hook up on some big plays deep downfield, but it's far from a sure thing. For this game, Williams should be viewed as a low-end WR3 with incredible upside.Gage wasn't heavily targeted last week, but with the Falcons offense back to being a dynamic unit, Gage is an intriguing deep league FLEX option this week. The Lions are surrendering plenty of fantasy points to opposing slot wideouts and Gage could be a sneaky play.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He stepped up big in their last game after Allen went down, compiling eight targets and turning them into 5/109/2. It seems that Herbert can support fantasy options, and maybe multiple receivers, though Allen appears to be the favorite when both are on the field. The Jaguars have oddly been ranked as the No. 3 defense in DVOA against No. 1 receivers but rank 23rd against No. 2 receivers. It's subjective to say which receiver is the No. 1 option in this offense because it comes down to Keenan Allen playing most of his snaps in the slot, which removes him from the No. 1 receiver territory. Due to the lack of targets they've faced to wide receivers (18.8 per game), we haven't seen a lot of big performances against the Jaguars, though the 9.0 yards per target suggests it's an above-average matchup. Williams plays on both sides of the field, so he won't see one cornerback more than another, so we have to rely on the overall numbers. Williams is moving up the rest of season rankings but we need to see him produce with Allen on the field before we trust him as anything more than a somewhat touchdown-dependent WR3.I mentioned last week that if/when Jones came back to the lineup, it would help everyone involved in the Falcons offense. While Gage finished with just four targets last week, they amounted to four catches for 65 yards. He hasn't seen more than five targets since back in Week 2, which is worrisome when you're playing him for a floor and not necessarily a ceiling. It certainly helps that the Lions opponents have targeted their wide receivers 65.3 percent of the time, which is the second-highest mark in the league. It also helps to know that the Lions have been crushed by slot-heavy receivers. Here are the ones they've played through five games: Keelan Cole 6/143/0, Emmanuel Sanders 6/93/0, Andy Isabella/Larry Fitzgerald 5/47/2, Allen Lazard 3/45/0, and Anthony Miller 4/76/1. It's clearly a weakness between Darryl Roberts and Justin Coleman. Gage should be able to offer a WR4/5-type floor in this game.
