Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams snagged both of the first two passes lobbed his way on Sunday to mark his first 1,000-yard season in the pros. Williams performed the feat while catching just 49 passes on the season, the first time anyone has done that in nine years. Unfortunately, Williams disappeared in the game after his two catches and LA went on to lose the matchup. It's unclear who will be throwing to Williams next season, but it is clear that the tandem of Williams and Keenan Allen is a serious force to be reckoned with. Expect to see Williams top 1,000 receiving yards again real soon.
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams is on the edge of history for Sunday's game. First, if Williams (963 receiving yards) and Austin Ekeler (950 receiving yards) can both top 1,000 yards receiving, they'll be the first Chargers trio of 1,000-yard receivers since 1980. Second, Williams only has 47 catches this season. Only one player (DeSean Jackson) in the last eight years has topped 1,000 receiving yards with less than 60 catches, and no one has done it with less than 56 catches. While the 25-year-old's touchdown total of just two is disappointing, he's shown what he's capable of at the highest level. Expect him to be a name to know in the future, and expect him to be gunning for his 1,000 yards on Sunday.
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams took 14 weeks to get his first touchdown this year, and after hauling one in last week as well, Williams was held scoreless by the Raiders. He came close to getting it anyway, but a beaten Oakland defender interfered to keep him from snagging it. Williams has had a breakout season in yardage, but his touchdowns dropped precipitously from 10 to two this year. That said, Williams has shown that he can compete successfully in this league, and he should be a strong receiver moving forward. If he can post one more big day against the Chiefs next week, he might even be able to notch the first 1,000-yard season of his career.
Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams caught three of his four targets for 51 yards in a 24-17 loss to the Oakland Raiders in Week 16.
Fantasy Spin: Williams was unable to extend his touchdown streak to three games, but he topped 50 receiving yards for the eighth straight game. He's closing in on 1,000 yards for the year, and if not for the unusually low amount of touchdowns, he'd be a borderline WR2.
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams has honed his craft this season and finally come into his own. Even though he's embedded in an offense that includes playmakers at every turn, Williams has found a way to stand out and become a regular on all the highlight shows. Riding a streak of seven-straight games with a catch of 39 or more yards, Williams has shown that he's an absolute force to be reckoned with across the field from Keenan Allen. The one-two punch have put up a phenomenal amount of yards this year, though their touchdowns have suffered due to interception issues by Philip Rivers. Hopefully, this is just a taste of more to come. This weekend should give Williams one more chance to really show out as he faces a weak Oakland secondary.
Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 20, and is not on the injury report for Week 16.
Fantasy Spin: Williams has posted at least 70 yards in four of the last six games and has caught a touchdown in each of the last two games. He can be considered at least a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 18.
Fantasy Spin: Williams has caught a touchdown pass in each of the last two games and has at least 60 yards in six of the last seven games. He can be considered at least a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.
The Los Angeles Chargers aren't a great football team this season, but it's hardly the fault of wide receiver Mike Williams. Williams put up another strong day with 71 receiving yards and a touchdown on Sunday, but LA got blasted by the Minnesota Vikings. Williams' score was the only touchdown of the day for the Chargers, who committed seven turnovers in the loss. Williams is now at 912 receiving yards on the season, and he'll likely eclipse the 1,000-yard notch before the season is out, joining teammate Keenan Allen in the club. The third-year wideout has proven this season that he can be a superstar in this league, though he's also reinforced that superstar wide receivers don't necessarily translate to team success at the same time.
Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams had four receptions, 71 yards and a touchdown against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, Dec. 15.
Fantasy Spin: Williams continues to put together a strong third season, topping 60 yards receiving for the ninth time in his last 12 games. The Clemson product also scored for the second straight week and should be a major part of the game plan against a porous Raiders secondary next Sunday.
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams is carrying quite the streak, and he'll be looking to add to it with another deep pass on Sunday. Williams has a reception of 40 or more yards in six straight games, though amazingly, only one of those bombs has turned into a touchdown. The third-year wideout is at 841 yards receiving, but it wasn't until last week's blowout against Jacksonville that he recorded his first score of the season. Facing off against a stingy Minnesota secondary, Williams will be hard-pressed to find an opening for another big play, but owners can bet he'll be trying and Rivers will give him a chance.
Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 13, and is not on the injury report for Week 15.
Fantasy Spin: Williams has posted at least 55 yards in each of the last six games despite being targeted only three times in three of those games. He can be considered a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues this week.
Los Angeles Chargers LB Uchenna Nwosu (ankle) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Week 15 versus the Minnesota Vikings. WR Mike Williams (knee), LB Drue Tranquill (elbow) and LB Thomas Davis (non-injury) practiced fully Friday, Dec. 13, and no longer appear on the injury report.
Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) remained limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 12.
Fantasy Spin: Williams has strung together a good stretch, where he as at least provided fantasy managers with a high floor. He has caught only two passes in three of his last four games, but he topped 50 yards each time and scored his first touchdown of the season last week. He's a flex option against the Minnesota Vikings this week, if active.
Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 11.
Fantasy Spin: Williams reached the end zone for the first time last week and has posted at least 60 yards in five of the last six games. He can be a No. 3 receiver or flex option in fantasy leagues this week.
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams didn't see a lot of chances on Sunday, but he fought to make his couple of opportunities count. With the team already up by 21 points late in the third quarter, Williams' number got pulled when Philip Rivers lofted a deep ball to the end zone on a long third down. Williams snatched at the ball and tumbled to the ground with both arms securely hanging on to it. Only problem was that the Jacksonville defender had both his arms around it too. The officials ruled that the catch was good, and Williams had officially broken his touchdown drought with his first of the season. Williams' only complication is the assortment of weapons available to Rivers on his offense. Otherwise, Williams is everything a team could want in a star receiver.
Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams caught two of his three targets for 63 yards and a touchdown, his first of the year, in a 45-10 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 14.
Fantasy Spin: The lack of touchdowns has curbed his fantasy value, but Williams has still be generating big plays and has already set a new career high in receiving yards. He's a flex option with enormous upside.
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams went huge last week against the Denver Broncos, and he'll be looking to continue building on his progress. Williams racked up 117 yards as he was the go-to receiver for deep passes, giving him a new career-high. He'll now turn his sights on the Jaguars, a less dominant secondary than that of the Broncos. However, in this case, them being less dominant may actually cut into Williams' production instead of helping it. One of the natural ways Denver's stingy secondary helped Williams is that Philip Rivers wanted to avoid Chris Harris Jr, who shadowed Keenan Allen all day. Jacksonville's secondary isn't so top-heavy, so Williams may not see as much work and Allen may see more. Williams has shown he can be a superstar though, so Rivers should still find him for a big play or two no matter what,
Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 6, and is not on the injury report for Week 14.
Fantasy Spin: Williams has been targeted at least six times in seven of the last nine games and has two 100-yard games in the last four weeks. He should be a starting option in all fantasy leagues.
