Williams caught four of six passing attempts for 46 yards in Sunday's 20-6 win over the Raiders. Williams was unable to find the end zone in his fourth consecutive game but was still the second most involved wide receiver after Keenan Allen, though Melvin Gordon also saw six targets. The 26-year-old has only seen three targets in the red zone all season and therefore continues to depend on the big play to produce fantasy value. He'll try to break another at home Week 11 against Denver.
Williams caught two of his three targets for 23 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 25-17 win over the Seahawks. After a dismal start to the season in which Williams caught 10 passes for 126 yards across the first four weeks of the season, the fourth-year wide receiver has tallied 12 catches for 325 yards to go along with four touchdowns in the subsequent four weeks. Much of that has production has come from big plays, but it's worth noting Williams has caught at least two passes in every game so he's at least somewhat involved in the offensive plans on a week-to-week basis. Williams and the Chargers will travel to face the Raiders next week.
Williams caught all four of his targets, compiling 118 receiving yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 20-19 win against Tennessee. On the Chargers' very first play from scrimmage, Philip Rivers connected with a streaking Williams down the left sideline for a 75-yard touchdown, to provide an immediate response to Tennessee's opening-drive field goal. Williams has enjoyed explosive production over the past two weeks, compiling 236 receiving yards and three touchdowns in wins over Tennessee and Cleveland, after putting up 192 yards and one touchdown over his first five outings of the year. The fourth-year man is averaging just 3.9 targets per game; thus, his value is contingent on success stretching the field (catches of 20-plus yards in five of seven games, with three of his four scores coming from 29 or more yards). Following a bye, Los Angeles will take on a Seahawks secondary Nov. 4 that ranks among the NFL's top five teams against the pass (206.0 yards allowed per game entering Week 7).
Williams caught three of four targets for 118 yards and two touchdowns while adding a one-yard run in Sunday's 38-14 win over the Browns. Williams did most of his damage on a two-play scoring drive in the second quarter. He caught a 44-yard deep ball on the first play of that drive, then added a 45-yard touchdown in triple coverage on the very next play. Williams added a 29-yard score later in the quarter. It's tough to predict which Chargers receiver will pop on any given week, but Williams will be in the mix against the Titans in Week 7.
Williams caught all three of his targets for 66 yards in the 26-10 win over the Raiders on Sunday. It only took five weeks, but Williams finally crossed the 50-yard receiving threshold Sunday, thanks almost exclusively to a 48-yard bomb from Philip Rivers that started at the team's own two-yard line. Despite trailing just Keenan Allen in terms of yardage, Williams' three targets were less than that of Allen, Melvin Gordon and Mike Williams , and tied with Austin Ekeler. In other words, Williams' position on the receiving hierarchy is the same as it has been throughout the opening portion of the 2018 season.
