9. Mike Williams

  • Highest ranking: Eighth
  • Lowest ranking: Not ranked

Mike Williams and Trai Turner actually had the same collective score but since Mike Williams appeared at eighth in two different rankings, while Turner only appeared at eighth in one, he gets the nod as the ninth-best player on the LA Chargers.

Williams is one of the most interesting players on the Chargers and for many reasons this is a really important season for him. Williams got off to a slow start because of injuries but put together a 1,000-yard season for the Bolts in 2019.

However, that was mainly because of Philip Rivers’ love with throwing the ball deep. Don’t get me wrong, Williams bailed Rivers out quite a lot, but it will be interesting to see how much he is utilized in this newfound offense and if he can be more than a one-trick pony for the Chargers.

The Chargers could be without Williams to start the season as he did suffer a shoulder strain in training camp but there is optimism that he will be on the field for the Chargers in Week 1. At most, he will miss one or two games.

The Chargers need him to return sooner rather than later as the receiving corps behind Williams is really inexperienced and not having Williams in the beginning of the season could cause a slow start.
