Chargers WR Mike Williams departs with knee injury

Field Level Media

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams was carted off the sideline in the fourth quarter of Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings with a left knee injury.

Williams caught a pass over the middle when he took a hit from Minnesota's defensive tackle Harrison Phillips and grabbed for his knee. He was helped off the field before being taken to the locker room.

The Chargers' big-play threat had seven catches before his injury for 121 yards and a touchdown. He entered with 12 receptions for 128 yards over the first two games of the season.

Williams, 28, missed four games last season with a high ankle sprain.

In addition, Chargers safety Derwin James was ruled questionable to return with a left hamstring injury.

Pick'em Plays: Week 3

Player Notes
Brian Robinson Jr. Sep 24 5:20pm ET
Brian Robinson Jr.

Washington Commanders running back Brian Robinson Jr. had 10 carries for 70 yards in Sunday's loss to the Buffalo Bills. Even with such a demoralizing loss, Robinson managed to have a productive day for himself. The game quickly got away from the Commanders, so the run game was not leaned on as much as it was in their previous two games. However, with just 10 touches, the former Alabama back looked solid with multiple strong gains. Robinson will hopefully see more opportunities against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 4.

Justin Herbert Sep 24 5:20pm ET
Justin Herbert

Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert was outstanding in a Week 3 win over the Minnesota Vikings. Herbert completed 40 of his 47 pass attempts for 405 yards and three touchdowns. He also added 11 yards on two carries and only took one sack despite the Vikings defense blitzing on 41 of 50 dropbacks. Herbert became just the second player in NFL history to pass for over 400 yards with three touchdowns, no turnovers, and an 85%or higher completion percentage. It was a great performance that led the Bolts to their first win of the season. A home matchup against the Raiders is next up in Week 4.

Amon-Ra St. Brown Sep 24 5:20pm ET
Amon-Ra St. Brown

Detroit Lions wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown caught nine of his 12 targets for 102 yards in the 20-6 victory over the Atlanta Falcons. It was the ninth time St. Brown has seen at least 10 targets since the start of last season. Needless to say, he continues to be a must-start fantasy asset and has one of the highest weekly floors in all of fantasy football. He'll look to continue his dominance against the Green Bay Packers on Thursday Night Football in Week 4.

Mike Williams Sep 24 5:20pm ET
Mike Williams

According to NFL Media's Tom Pelissero, Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams (knee) will undergo an MRI on Monday. The 28-year-old had his best game of the season in the narrow win over the Vikings, pulling in seven of his eight targets for 121 yards and a touchdown. However, he suffered a nasty knee injury late in the contest and left the field on a cart. While fantasy managers hope for the best, considering how bad Williams' injury appeared, there's not much reason to remain optimistic. If he misses time, Kennan Allen should see even more attention from Justin Herbert. At the same time, Joshua Palmer and Donald Parham Jr., who combined for three touchdowns in Week 3, might rise on the depth chart.

Joshua Kelley Sep 24 5:20pm ET
Joshua Kelley

Los Angeles Chargers running back Joshua Kelley was disappointing again in a Week 3 win over the Minnesota Vikings. Kelley got the start over Austin Ekeler (ankle) who was forced to miss another game with the injury he suffered at the end of Week 1. Kelley ran the ball 11 times, gaining a total of just 12 yards. He caught one pass for five yards on his only target. Kelley's longest run was a four yard gain, and he averaged just over one yard per carry. Luckily for the Chargers, they were able to throw the ball at will against the Vikings zone defense. Kelley's best contribution to the Chargers offense has been showing just how valuable Ekeler is when he's on the field.

Jahmyr Gibbs

Detroit Lions running back Jahmyr Gibbs rushed 17 times for 80 yards and caught one of his two targets for two yards in the Week 3 win over the Atlanta Falcons. It was nice to see the rookie get a healthy workload, but it was ultimately a disappointing fantasy outing in the absence of David Montgomery (thigh). If Montgomery doesn't play on Thursday night against the Green Bay Packers, Gibbs will have plenty of upside. Hopefully, he'll get more involved in the team's passing game.

Treylon Burks Sep 24 5:10pm ET
Treylon Burks

Tennessee Titans wide receiver Treylon Burks caught just one of his six targets for five yards in the blowout loss to the Cleveland Browns. He has failed to make a real fantasy impact this season after an up-and-down rookie campaign last year, so he's starting to look more and more like a bust. There is still time for the Arkansas product to turn things around, but he is off the fantasy radar until further notice. Ryan Tannehill is playing the worst football of his career so far to begin the 2023 season. That does not bode well for Burks' rest-of-season outlook.

Sam LaPorta Sep 24 5:10pm ET
Sam LaPorta

Detroit Lions tight end Sam LaPorta caught eight of his 11 targets for 84 yards and a touchdown in the Week 3 win over the Atlanta Falcons. The talented Iowa product already has 18 catches for 186 yards through his first three NFL games and looks poised for a TE1 season as a rookie. That would put him in rare company, but he's well on his way. The 22-year-old is now a must-start option at the scarce fantasy tight end position. The Lions face the Green Bay Packers on Thursday Night Football in Week 4.

Kendrick Bourne Sep 24 5:00pm ET
Kendrick Bourne

New England Patriots wide receiver Kendrick Bourne hauled in four of five targets for 46 receiving yards during Sunday's win over the New York Jets. He and DeVante Parker continue to co-exist as the team's top wide receivers, clearly earning more volume than offseason addition JuJu Smith-Schuster. Bourne will rank as a WR4 in fantasy leagues going forward and can be left on your benches versus the Cowboys in Week 4.

DeAndre Hopkins Sep 24 5:00pm ET
DeAndre Hopkins

Tennessee Titans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins caught just three passes for 48 yards on seven targets in the Week 3 blowout loss to the Cleveland Browns. The former Pro Bowler continues to be Ryan Tannehill's favorite target, but that doesn't mean it'll add up to a ton of fantasy points in the putrid Titans' offense. The 31-year-old is the only pass-catcher on the fantasy radar for Tennessee, but his floor is low, and his ceiling is limited. It'll likely stay that way for the majority of 2023.

Hunter Henry Sep 24 5:00pm ET
Hunter Henry

New England Patriots tight end Hunter Henry turned five targets into just two catches for 17 yards against the New York Jets in Week 3. After ranking as the No. 2 tight end in fantasy football through the first two weeks, Henry's production took a step backward at a rainy MetLife Stadium on Sunday. With that said, the 28-year-old should still be started in most leagues going forward, even against the Cowboys next week.

Derrick Henry Sep 24 4:50pm ET
Derrick Henry

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry rushed 11 times for just 20 yards in the 27-3 loss to the Cleveland Browns. He did not catch a pass, so the 29-year-old obviously posted one of the worst games of his career. The Titans' offensive line was pushed around by the Browns' fierce defensive line and Henry never had any room to make something happen. After a game this disastrous, Henry has a floor even lower than expected. That said, it's far too early to take him out of "must-start" territory moving forward. He'll draw a matchup with the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 4.

Mac Jones Sep 24 4:50pm ET
Mac Jones

New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones completed 15 of 29 passes for 201 yards, one touchdown, and zero interceptions against the New York Jets in Week 3. He also rushed for 13 yards. His biggest play was undoubtedly a 58-yard touchdown strike to Pharaoh Brown. Jones will remain a low-end fantasy QB2 heading into a difficult matchup versus the Cowboys next Sunday.

Ezekiel Elliott Sep 24 4:50pm ET
Ezekiel Elliott

New England Patriots running back Ezekiel Elliott rushed 16 times for 80 yards against the New York Jets on Sunday afternoon. He also delivered a seven-yard reception. When all was said and done, Elliott had three fewer carries than Rhamondre Stevenson but led the team in rushing yards. It's still hard to trust the veteran as a steady fantasy option going forward, but he could have occasional RB3/FLEX appeal based on matchup. The Patriots face a stout Cowboys defense in Week 4.

Ryan Tannehill Sep 24 4:50pm ET
Ryan Tannehill

Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill completed 13 of his 25 passing attempts for 104 yards, no touchdowns, and no interceptions in the blowout loss to the Cleveland Browns. The 35-year-old was sacked five times and was under constant pressure from Myles Garrett all game long. Tennessee's offensive line is a major issue and will make the floors of Tannehill and all the Titans' fantasy options low in 2023. Tannehill had plenty of fantasy success in 2020 and 2021, but he looks beyond his prime and is not on the fantasy radar in single-QB formats.

Sam Howell Sep 24 4:50pm ET
Sam Howell

Washington Commanders quarterback Sam Howell completed 19-of-29 passes for 170 yards and four interceptions along with one carry for 18 yards in Sunday's loss to the Buffalo Bills. After a solid performance in Week 2, things couldn't have gone much worse for the former Tar Heel in Week 3. In addition to his woeful passing performance, Howell took nine sacks from the Bills' defense, upping his season total to 19 sacks in just three games. Although the Commanders are 2-1 heading into Week 4, it's going to be hard to consider them and Howell legitimate threats after this miserable outing. The second-year quarterback will hope to bounce back in Week 4 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Rhamondre Stevenson

New England Patriots running back Rhamondre Stevenson totaled 59 rushing yards on 19 carries against the New York Jets in Week 3. He also turned four targets into just one three-yard reception. Stevenson led the team with 20 opportunities but was out-produced by Ezekiel Elliott (87 scrimmage yards). The 25-year-old should continue to be viewed as a fantasy RB2 going forward, though next week's clash with the talented Cowboys could weaken his production.

Amari Cooper Sep 24 4:40pm ET
Amari Cooper

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Amari Cooper caught seven of his eight targets for 116 yards and a touchdown in a 27-3 win over the Tennessee Titans in Week 3. Cooper put the game out of reach with a 43-yard touchdown catch in the fourth quarter on a play where he got wide open behind the defense and easily hauled in the deep pass for the score. The touchdown goes down as Cooper's first of the year. Through three games he has 17 catches on 25 targets for 243 yards. Cooper will be locked in as a top-20 wide receiver heading into Week 4's divisional matchup against the Baltimore Ravens.

Zach Wilson

New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson will remain the starter versus the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 4, head coach Robert Saleh confirmed on Sunday. The comment came after Wilson went 18-for-36 with 157 yards, zero touchdowns, zero touchdowns, and three sacks in a 15-10 loss versus the Patriots. Wilson has twice as many interceptions as touchdowns this season and has struggled drastically, though it's worth noting that his two starts have come against incredibly strong defenses (Cowboys and Patriots). His job won't get any easier against an all-around strong Chiefs team on Sunday Night Football in Week 4.

Elijah Moore Sep 24 4:40pm ET
Elijah Moore

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Elijah Moore caught all nine of his targets for 49 yards in a 27-3 win over the Tennessee Titans in Week 3. Moore also lost a fumble and lost one yard on three carries in the blowout win. The veteran wideout has been heavily involved in the Cleveland offense through the first three games of the season as he has finished first or second in targets in each of Cleveland's contests, totaling 25 targets overall. Moore has yet to have a breakout game in 2023 but that could come in the near future if he continues to see heavy targets. He will face off against the Baltimore Ravens at home in Week 4.
