2020 RTSports Outlook

Williams started his season strong with the Raiders, scoring touchdowns each of his first four games. He also had a 100-yard game Week 1. He didn't have another 100-yard game the rest of the year, though, and scored just two more touchdowns after Week 4. Williams had very similar numbers to his last few seasons with the Chargers, catching 42 passes for 651 yards and six touchdowns. Williams should start again for the Raiders this year. He is a former 1,000-yard receiver, so the potential is there for Williams to improve on his first season with the Raiders. Williams is a tall receiver with good speed. He has a knack for making the big play. He does lack a little strength but it has not been a big detriment to his career.

FANTASY OUTLOOK: Williams has some potential in a starting role but likely will be hit or miss. He might be worth grabbing as a low-end No. 3 or 4 fantasy receiver. He will have some big games. Williams can get around 50 receptions for 800 yards and five or so scores.

RotoBaller's Outlook

When Williams is the No. 1 or No. 2 WR in his offense, he has proven he can put up above-average fantasy numbers. His 2016 season attests to that when he was with the then San Diego Chargers (69 receptions, 1,059 yards, seven TD). But when Williams is a secondary option like last year when he fell behind Keenan Allen and Mike Williams on the target total totem pole with the Chargers, he is not much of a fantasy option (41-653-5). Oakland is the perfect landing spot for Williams. While he will not get the looks or have the stats Antonio Brown will, Williams is clearly quarterback David Carrs No. 2 option without a doubt. Oaklands other receivers (J.J. Nelson and Ryan Grant) pose no threat, and the Raiders have a gaping hole at tight end since Jared Cook signed with New Orleans. Do not assume Browns presence is a hindrance to Williams fantasy value. Brown will allow Williams to be single-covered and give him ample opportunities to make plays. Just look to how JuJu Schuster thrived alongside Brown the past two years in Pittsburgh. Williams combination of size, speed and hands should make him a key cog in Jon Grudens 2019 offense. Do not be surprised if Williams has the best year of his career.

Player Notes
Apr 14 9:33pm ET

Las Vegas Raiders WRs Tyrell Williams, Nelson Agholor and Hunter Renfrow are currently expected to be the team's top three receivers on the depth chart, but general manager Mike Mayock recently acknowledged during a pre-draft interview with ESPN's Dan Graziano that 'we need to get better at wideout.'

Feb 27 1:23pm ET

Oakland Raiders WR Tyrell Williams (foot) recently told head coach Jon Gruden that he was close to 100 percent recovered from the plantar fasciitis he dealt with last season, Gruden said Thursday, Feb. 27.

Fantasy Spin: Williams started 2019 on fire with a touchdown catch and at least 11.9 PPR points in each of his first five games played but only reached those standards once in his final nine contests as his foot issues really began to take their toll. Don't be surprised if the Raiders add another wideout this offseason and Williams becomes more of a WR3/4 fantasy option.

Oakland Raiders WR Tyrell Williams (foot) is making good progress in his recovery from the plantar fasciitis he dealt with in both of his feet, according to sources.

Fantasy Spin: Williams had a great start to the 2019 season but had some problems during the final month of the season. He should be one of the starting receivers for the Raiders next season and could be a No. 3 receiver in some fantasy leagues.

Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Tyrell Williams (foot) is making good progress from the plantar fasciitis issues he dealt with last season. In his first year with the Raiders, Williams caught 42 passes for 651 yards and six touchdowns. He only missed two games but was slowed by his foot issues, mostly in the second half. Williams started off with five touchdowns in his first five games, but he predictably fell off from there with just one more touchdown on the season. He gives the Raiders a downfield threat, but the problem is that quarterback Derek Carr doesn't often challenge defenses deep. If Las Vegas addresses the receiver position in free agency or the draft, Williams could have even more trouble being a consistent performer. As of now, he's a touchdown-dependent flex option.

From RotoBaller

Feb 6 11:13pm ET

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr had a 112.6 quarterback rating when targeting WR Tyrell Williams in 2019, the highest rating to any receiver in his career.

Fantasy Spin: Williams slowed dramatically after a hot start to the year, but he was still the most dangerous deep threat for the passing attack. His big-play ability gives him WR3 potential in standard leagues, but Williams' style is a better fit for best-ball formats.

From TheHuddle

Feb 5 6:43pm ET

Oakland Raiders WR Tyrell Williams' $11 million base salary for 2020 became full guaranteed Wednesday, Feb. 5.

Fantasy Spin: Williams posted 651 yards and six touchdowns in 14 regular season games and likely will be one of the starting receivers again next season. He has a chance to be a No. 3 in fantasy leagues.
