Williams caught six of his 12 targets for 71 yards in the 29-28 win over the Chiefs on Thursday.
Williams was forced into the No. 2 role behind Mike Williams after Keenan Allen went down with a hip injury in the second quarter, and the 26-year-old promptly record his most catches and third-most receiving yards of the 2018 campaign. It's unclear how serious Allen's injury may be, but should the star receiver be forced to miss any time, Williams immediately becomes a viable fantasy option in nearly all formats, even with a difficult matchup against the Ravens defense on tap next Saturday.
Williams caught all three of his targets for 14 yards in the 26-21 win over the Bengals on Sunday.
At this point, it's clear that Williams' run through Week 6 and 7, where he totaled 236 receiving yards and three touchdowns, was just an aberration. From Week 9 through Week 14, the fourth-year receiver has caught just 11 passes for 119 yards and one touchdown, remaining at best a longshot to post even adequate fantasy numbers.
Williams (quadriceps) caught one of his two targets for 14 yards in Sunday's 33-30 win over the Steelers.
Williams played in 50 snaps Sunday, so it's clear the quadriceps injury that essentially forced him to miss last week's contest against the Cardinals is no longer an issue. The 26-year-old has seen his fantasy value fluctuate throughout the season, but next week's matchup against the 31st-ranked Bengals' pass defense could wind up being a lucrative one for Williams and the rest of the Chargers' offense.
Williams (quadriceps) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Steelers.
Williams will give it a go Sunday night after logging a season-low nine snaps in Week 12, en route to going without a target. We'll have to see if he's up for much more work versus Pittsburgh, but Williams is a risky fantasy roll until he gets a full and productive game in.
Williams (quadriceps) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers, Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com reports.
Williams will carry an injury designation into gameday for the second week in a row after the lingering quad injury limited his involvement in practices Wednesday through Friday. Though the questionable tag didn't prevent Williams from suiting up in last week's win over the Cardinals, he played a season-low nine snaps in the contest and wasn't targeted. Similar restrictions could be in place of Williams again this weekend even if he's active, making him a dicey option in fantasy lineups.
