2. Mike Williams OVER 59.5 receiving yards (-115)

You know what they say about history? It repeats itself and if that adage proves to be true on Thursday night then Mike Williams is going to have a big game. Williams has had a tendency to disappear in certain games this season as he struggles to get open against man coverage. This could be worrisome as it has become more and more clear that getting Williams going is the key to the offense succeeding.

Williams had a remarkable game against the Chiefs in Week 3 this season that would have been his best game of the season if it was not for an insane game against the Cleveland Browns. Last time he saw the Chiefs, Williams made seven catches for 122 yards and two touchdowns.

Williams has always succeeded against the Chiefs and we can expect him to succeed in this game for one key reason: Mike Hughes. Hughes is going to be responsible for lining up on Mike Williams with L'Jarius Sneed inactive and that was a disaster for the Chiefs last time it happened.

Week 3 was one of the few weeks where Hughes got big playing time this season and he was exposed by Williams and the Chargers. Even if the Chiefs try and give Hughes more help, Williams is going to have more confidence just based on the fact that he is lining up against the same guy that he torched earlier in the season.

I doubt there will be many deep shots because of the tackle situation but we could see Williams targeted a lot on quick routes over the middle of the field. Picking up 60 yards seems like an easy thing to do.
