2. Mike Williams/Hunter Henry

Let’s not forget about the other targets that Justin Herbert threw to in Week 11, although we are still going to make them share a slide.

It is easy to overlook what Mike Williams did in this game because of the stellar game that Keenan Allen had but he still made some really tough catches in typical Mike Williams fashion and was a reliable outlet for Herbert.

Williams had four receptions on seven targets for 72 yards and a touchdown. His touchdown had shades of Allen as well as Herbert delivered a dart on a deep in route to Williams, who turned on the jets (pun intended) after catching the ball to outrun the defense into the endzone.

Henry was just as efficient as a passing target and found the endzone as well. His touchdown was a short two-yard laser from Herbert that would have put a hole through my chest if I tried catching it.

On the day, Henry was targeted six times, making four receptions for 48 yards. This is his third game in a row with a touchdown.

It is important to bring up that the Chargers are going to have to make some financial decisions with these two players. Henry is on the franchise tag this season and Williams has his fifth-year option next season before becoming a free agent. Games like this make it hard to justify not signing both men.
