  • Mike Williams Ruled Out Against Cardinals

    Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams (ankle) has officially been ruled out for the Week 12 game against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. Williams returned in the Week 11 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs but suffered a setback with his high-ankle sprain and will miss another game this weekend. It remains to be seen if he'll be able to make it back in Week 13 to face the Las Vegas Raiders. With Big Mike out, Keenan Allen, Joshua Palmer and DeAndre Carter will be the Bolts' top three receivers for quarterback Justin Herbert. Williams has 38 catches on 60 targets for 510 yards and three touchdowns in eight games so far in 2022, but his ankle injury could slow him down the rest of the way.

  • Mike Williams Doesn't Practice Thursday

    Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams (ankle) didn't suit up for practice on Thursday. The 28-year-old re-aggravated his ankle sprain that he suffered in Week 11. Head coach Brandon Staley mentioned that the team is taking things day-to-day with Williams. Fantasy managers will have to wait and see if Williams practices on Friday. He'd be a low-end WR2 for the upcoming matchup with the Arizona Cardinals.

  • Mike Williams Limited In Practice Wednesday

    Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams (ankle) was a limited participant in practice on Wednesday after re-aggravating his high ankle sprain in Week 11. Head coach Brandon Staley stated that the team would take things "day by day" with Williams as he is likely to be limited in practice all week. This gives him a chance to suit up in what would be an enticing matchup against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. Fantasy managers should monitor Williams' status throughout the week and should view him as a risky WR2 with great upside if active.

  • Mike Williams Re-Aggravated High-Ankle Sprain

    Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams (ankle) re-aggravated his high-ankle sprain during Sunday's loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, head coach Brandon Staley told the media. "We are going to find out a lot more in the next couple of days about his possibilities for Wednesday's practice," Staley said. "But not a significant re-injury." As of now, Williams' status for Week 12 is up in the air. If active, he should be viewed as a low-end WR2 in fantasy football.

  • Mike Williams Downgraded To Out Sunday

    Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams (ankle) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday Night Football against the Kansas City Chiefs. He caught one pass for 15 yards before exiting. This development is concerning since Williams missed the last two games with a high-ankle sprain, so it makes sense that the Chargers are holding him out for the remainder of the contest. As long as Williams is sidelined, Keenan Allen, Joshua Palmer, and DeAndre Carter will operate as Los Angeles' lead receivers.

  • Mike Williams Questionable To Return Sunday

    Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams (ankle) is officially questionable to return against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 11. He caught one pass for 15 yards before exiting. This development is concerning since Williams missed the last two games with a high-ankle sprain. Because of this, it would not be surprising to see the Chargers exercise caution and hold Williams out for the remainder of the contest. As long as Williams is sidelined, Keenan Allen, Joshua Palmer, and DeAndre Carter will operate as the Chargers' lead receivers.

  • Keenan Allen, Mike Williams Officially Active For Week 11

    Los Angeles Chargers wide receivers Keenan Allen (hamstring) and Mike Williams (ankle) are active for Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs despite being listed as questionable. Allen has played in just two games this season, catching six passes for 77 yards. He is a solid WR2 when healthy, but at the age of 30, he is no longer a guaranteed commodity in fantasy football. On the other hand, Williams has quickly asserted himself as a flashy, high-upside option. The 28-year-old has totaled 495 yards and three touchdowns this season, and while he has a relatively low floor, he should still be viewed as a high-end WR2 on a weekly basis.

  • Mike Williams Expected To Play In Week 11

    Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams (ankle) is expected to be active for Sunday's divisional clash with the Kansas City Chiefs, according to Jordan Schultz of The Score. The 28-year-old had been listed as questionable despite practicing in full on Friday. Williams is the Chargers' leading receiver this season, having caught 37 passes for 495 yards and three touchdowns through seven games. He ranks as a WR2 ahead of what should be a high-scoring affair versus Kansas City. On the topic of Chargers receivers, it's worth noting that Williams' teammate, Keenan Allen (hamstring), is also trending towards being active for just the third time this season.

  • Keenan Allen, Mike Williams Officially Questionable

    Los Angeles Chargers wide receivers Keenan Allen (hamstring) and Mike Williams (ankle) both practiced in full on Friday and are officially listed as questionable for a Week 11 matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs. Allen expressed confidence in his availability for Sunday night but added that it will ultimately be up to the coaching staff, while Williams stated that he "should be out there". This is excellent news for fantasy managers of the two wideouts as well as those rostering quarterback Justin Herbert. If active, both Allen and Williams will immediately have WR2 value in a potential divisional shootout.

  • Keenan Allen, Mike Williams Practice Again Thursday

    Los Angeles Chargers wide receivers Keenan Allen (hamstring) and Mike Williams (ankle) both practiced on Thursday for the second straight day this week. Allen and Williams were limited on Wednesday and will likely be listed as limited again on Thursday. It's great news, though, as they both have a shot at playing in the Sunday night showdown against the Kansas City Chiefs. However, fantasy managers may have some tough decisions to make this weekend if Allen and Williams are game-time decisions on Sunday night. And even if they're active, you'll run the risk of both of them having their snaps limited in their first game back. Joshua Palmer and DeAndre Carter have been adequate as quarterback Justin Herbert's top two wideouts with Allen and Williams sidelined, but they'll be risky flex options if Allen and Williams are back against KC.

  • Keenan Allen, Mike Williams Return To Individual Drills

    Los Angeles Chargers wide receivers Keenan Allen (hamstring) and Mike Williams (ankle) returned to individual drills at practice on Wednesday, according to head coach Brandon Staley. The Chargers expected both Allen and Williams to return to practice this week, but it remains to be seen if they'll be able to play on Sunday night against the Kansas City Chiefs. Both wideouts were officially limited, but they'll be extra risky starting options in fantasy if they're questionable on the final injury report for Sunday night's game. Allen has been an absolute bust for fantasy managers this year while playing in only parts of two games. If both Allen and Williams return, it will be a massive boost for quarterback Justin Herbert. Joshua Palmer and DeAndre Carter have seen expanded roles with both Allen and Williams sidelined.

  • Keenan Allen, Mike Williams Should Practice This Week

    Los Angeles Chargers head coach Brandon Staley said that wide receivers Keenan Allen (hamstring) and Mike Williams (ankle) should return to practice this week. Allen injured his hamstring in the season opener, returned in Week 7 to play 23 offensive snaps and hasn't played since. Meanwhile, Williams sustained a high-ankle sprain in Week 7 and hasn't played since. Getting his top two receivers back on the field would be huge for quarterback Justin Herbert and his fantasy upside, while Joshua Palmer and DeAndre Carter would go back to complementary roles in the passing game. Allen's fantasy managers want to see it before they believe it, and Allen has previously stated he won't return until he's 100 percent healthy. Keep a close eye on both wideouts' practice statuses this week.

  • Mike Williams Could Return To Practice Next Week

    Los Angeles Chargers head coach Brandon Staley said that there's a "good chance" that wide receiver Mike Williams (ankle) will return to practice in some capacity next week. Williams is officially out for the Sunday night game in Week 10 against the San Francisco 49ers, and he's been out since suffering a high-ankle sprain in Week 7. Williams and Keenan Allen (hamstring) will both miss another game this weekend, leaving Joshua Palmer and DeAndre Carter in significant starting roles yet again. Williams should be stashed in all fantasy formats, as he has 37 catches on 59 targets for 495 yards and three touchdowns in his seven games played for LA so far this season. A return to practice next week won't necessarily mean he'll return in Week 11 against the division-rival Kansas City Chiefs.
