Williams hauled in four passes (on four targets) for 132 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 30-13 win over the Redskins.
Williams was the beneficiary of a 75-yard touchdown bomb from Philip Rivers in the second quarter while also bringing in catches of 34 and 20 yards. The big-play receiver hasn't caught more than four balls since Week 4, but days like today are always possible for him with gunslinger Philip Rivers at the helm. The downside to Williams' game, of course, is that he has a tendency to disappear, with eight games of two or fewer receptions this season. Despite the strong performance Sunday, standard-format fantasy owners would likely be better off looking for a more consistent option going forward.
Williams turned three targets into one catch for eight yards in the 19-10 win over the Browns on Sunday.
Williams was used mainly as a blocking asset Sunday, once again seeing the second-most snaps of any Chargers wide receiver while seeing a limited amount of receiving opportunities. With the fantasy playoffs nearing for many players, Williams is far too inconsistent to warrant much use except in the deepest of leagues.
Thursday's touchdown was only the second score for Williams this season, as the third-year receiver has struggled to generate much offense despite seeing the second most snaps of any Chargers' wide receiver. That could change depending on the status of 2017 first-round pick Mike Williams, who exited Thursday's game with a knee injury. If the rookie were to miss any time, Tyrell Williams figures to step in as the team's obvious No. 2 wide receiver - a juicy proposition given the Chargers face the Browns next Sunday.
Williams caught his only target for 11 yards in the 54-24 win over the Bills on Sunday.
Williams' abysmal stat line doesn't reflect his usage rate, as he was on the field for 61 of the Chargers' 74 snaps. That was the best mark of any Chargers skill-position player, with Keenan Allen and Philip Rivers held out for the majority of the fourth quarter after the Bolts all but locked up the win before the start of the second half. It's quickly shaping up to be a disappointing season for Williams given the fact he has caught no more than two passes in each of the last four games.
Williams snagged two of his five targets for 49 receiving yards in the 20-17 overtime loss to the Jaguars on Sunday.
Williams actually led all Chargers receivers in total yardage, as the offense mainly revolved around dump-off passes to running backs Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler. A 30-yard reception by the second-year pro did equal the Chargers' most explosive play of the afternoon, but given Williams' mediocre 59 percent catch rate, he's essentially a boom-or-bust player. While 2017 first-round pick, Mike Williams, hasn't seen much of an increase in snaps, it feels like only a matter of time until the Clemson product wiggles his way into a more prominent role, likely at the expense of the elder Williams.
