Oakland Raiders WR Tyrell Williams has impressed with his speed and route-running so far in OTAs.
Fantasy Spin: Williams' season-high for targets (119) came in 2016 with the Chargers, and he'll be doing good if he can come close to that this season playing opposite Antonio Brown. Value Williams as a WR5.
Free-agent WR Tyrell Williams (Chargers) officially signed with the Oakland Raiders Wednesday, March 13.
The Oakland Raiders signed free-agent wide receiver Tyrell Williams to a four-year deal worth $44 million on Wednesday, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The deal also includes $22 million in guarantees. He'll provide good speed opposite new receiver Antonio Brown as the Raiders significantly upgrade their receiver corps. Williams boasts 16.3 yards per catch in his career and had one 1,000-yard season (2016) with the Chargers. Jordy Nelson should see most of the slot duties. Williams' ability to stretch the field will be key, but it's fair to wonder if quarterback Derek Carr will hook up with him often. Still, Williams has a higher fantasy ceiling in his new digs.
Los Angeles Chargers impending free-agent WR Tyrell Williams agreed to an undisclosed deal with the Oakland Raiders Wednesday, March 13, according to a source.

Fantasy Spin: It's not the strongest free-agent wide receiver class and Williams is one of the best receivers available. He's now three years removed from a 1,000-yard campaign and has averaged 5.3 touchdowns over the last three years. If he lands with the Colts he'll have a WR2 ceiling but would be better drafted as a WR3.

Los Angeles Chargers impending free-agent WR Tyrell Williams would provide a much-needed deep threat for QB Josh Allen, according to Bill Barnwell of ESPN.com, and Barnwell believes the Bills should pursue Williams 'even if it means paying an exorbitant price' to sign him.
Fantasy Spin: Williams has been a big-play dependent player for the Chargers, and it remains to be seen how he can perform as a go-to option in a passing attack. Buffalo isn't likely to boast one of the league's best passing offenses any time soon, but Allen's big arm could take advantage of Williams' speed. He'd a be a WR3 candidate if he lands with the Bills.

Impending free-agent WR Tyrell Williams may be too expensive for the Los Angeles Chargers to re-sign this offseason, according to Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com.
Los Angeles Chargers impending free-agent wide receiver Tyrell Williams believes he's a No. 1 wideout in the NFL. The undrafted receiver exceeded expectations in his four years with the team, but he had just 41 catches for 653 yards and five touchdowns in 2018. Williams had 155 catches for 2,530 yards and 17 total touchdowns in four years with the Bolts. His best season came in 2016 when Keenan Allen missed the season due to a torn ACL, as he led the team in receptions (69) and receiving yards (1,059) and was tied for the team lead with seven TDs. He has never missed a game in his career. Williams could get too expensive for LA in free agency, and they already have Mike Williams ready to replace him as the No. 2. The Chargers have $22.8 million in salary cap space, which puts them in the bottom half of the league. While Williams' fantasy stock is down, he could be a sleeper in 2019 depending on where he lands in free agency.
