LA Chargers fantasy football draft or pass, Mike Williams: Pass
After a breakout season in which he recorded 1,000 receiving yards for the first time in his career and led the entire league in yards per reception, Mike Williams is absolutely one of those fringe wide receiver options that are going to go way too high in some leagues and way too low in others.
As much as I love Mike Williams as a second receiver on the LA Chargers, I would consider passing on Williams altogether as there are too many variables around him this season and he very well could regress.
Our own Faustino Felix did a great job in breaking down why Williams might be set for a regression this season and it absolutely hits the nail on the head. Chances are that we are not going to see another 1,000-yard season out of Williams, and the results might look more like his second season.
There is some intrigue in him as a flex option if he is able to haul in double-digit touchdowns again despite the reduction in passing yards but I do not think that is going to be the case, either. The team is going to be running the ball a lot in the red zone and because of Allen, I think Williams will have fewer trips to the endzone.
The number of targets for each pass-catcher is going to go down and I do think that Mike Williams is going to be hurt the most by it. He no longer has his gunslinging quarterback to bomb him down-field passes and that could result in some disappointed fantasy owners.
