  • Jameson Williams A Long Shot To Face Jaguars

    Detroit Lions wide receiver Jameson Williams (knee) is reportedly a long shot to play in Week 13 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The No. 12 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft hasn't played football since tearing his ACL in the College Football Playoff National Championship game in mid-January of 2021. With the Lions sitting at 4-7, the team is in no rush to get him on the field and risk re-injury. There is some hope he will play this season, but head coach Dan Campbell said "it would take a lot" for him to suit up on Sunday.

  • Jameson Williams Could Debut In Week 13

    The Detroit Lions won't have first-round rookie wide receiver Jameson Williams (knee) on Thanksgiving against the Buffalo Bills, but his return from a torn ACL in college is coming soon. He's expected to practice at full speed next week, and barring any setbacks, there's a good chance he's activated to play in Week 13 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Williams did everything with the team this week has been going full speed in his rehab drills. He's been attending all meetings and is mentally ready. The 21-year-old should make his NFL debut next week and should be scooped up in all fantasy leagues if he's available. Still, we should be tempering expectations initially for the speedy deep threat, and the Lions are also getting D.J. Chark and Josh Reynolds back from injuries this week.

  • Jameson Williams Returns To Practice

    Detroit Lions wide receiver Jameson Williams (knee) has been on the Physically Unable To Perform list since the season began. However, the team designated him to return, resulting in his first practice on Monday. As the 12th overall pick, the Lions see a bright future for the young wideout, who put together an impressive final season at Alabama with 79 receptions for 1,572 yards and 15 touchdowns before suffering a torn ACL. The 21-year-old is expected to suit up in the coming weeks, adding another weapon for Jared Goff and company, who are on a three-game winning streak. He could make an immediate impact, making him an intriguing player to add and stash in fantasy football while we wait for him to be active.

  • Lions Designate WR Jameson Williams For Return

    Fresh off a victory which extended their winning streak to three games, the Lions could have a significant addition coming soon. The team announced on Monday that they have opened rookie wideout Jameson Williams‘ practice window. That gives him three weeks to be activated from the NFI list. If he does not return within that timeframe, […]

  • Lions Designate Romeo Okwara, DJ Chark For Return, Aiming For Late-Season Jameson Williams Look

    Coming off their second straight win, the Lions made some notable transactions Wednesday. They designated Romeo Okwara and DJ Chark for return. In his third season with Detroit, Okwara has been on the team’s reserve/PUP list all season. He has been recovering from a torn Achilles for more than 13 months. Chark has been out […]

  • Jameson Williams Hopes To Return To Practice After Thanksgiving

    Detroit Lions rookie wide receiver Jameson Williams (knee) is hoping to return to practice after Thanksgiving next week. Head coach Dan Campbell expects the team to designate Williams to return from Injured Reserve after Thanksgiving, with a Week 13 debut against the Jacksonville Jaguars a possibility. The Lions are being very cautious with the 21-year-old first-rounder after he tore his left ACL in January, so fantasy managers probably shouldn't expect much from him once he returns later this season. In the long term, though, Williams has star potential and should remain stashed in all dynasty/keeper leagues. The Lions are getting healthier at the receiver position, with DJ Chark (ankle) a possibility to return this weekend against the New York Giants.

  • Jameson Williams At Least A Month Away

    Detroit Lions rookie first-rounder Jameson Williams' (knee) return remains at least a month away, according to head coach Dan Campbell. Williams remains stash-worthy in the majority of fantasy leagues, but you'll have to remain patient, and he'll likely be eased into the fold when he does make his NFL debut. The 21-year-old suffered a torn ACL in college in January and continues to rehab. DJ Chark (ankle) is also on Injured Reserve, so the Lions will head into their Week 8 matchup against the Miami Dolphins with Amon-Ra St. Brown, Josh Reynolds and Kalif Raymond as their top three pass-catchers. It may not be until December until we see Williams in an actual game.

  • Lions Believe Jameson Williams Will Play This Year

    Detroit Lions head coach Dan Campbell said "we feel like he's coming on" when discussing rookie first-round wide receiver Jameson Williams (knee). The Lions believe that he will play this season. "When he's ready, we'll get him up and ready to go," Campbell said. The 21-year-old is still recovering from a torn ACL he suffered in college in January, and he's not ready to come off the Non-Football Injury list just yet. But given his upside in a Detroit offense that has looked pretty strong so far in 2022, Williams is worth stashing in the majority of fantasy leagues if you have the extra roster space. His biggest hurdle will be securing enough playing time and targets down the stretch alongside a strong receiving corps that includes Amon-Ra St. Brown, DJ Chark and Josh Reynolds.

  • No Timetable On Jameson Williams' Return

    Detroit Lions wide receiver Jameson Williams (knee) hasn't played this season. The first-round pick suffered a torn ACL in his final college game and started his NFL career on the reserve/non-football injury list. While the rookie is eligible to come off the list starting this week, head coach Dan Campbell said there is no firm timetable for his return. However, Campbell did say Williams won't return before Detroit's bye in Week 6. Fantasy players with an available IR spot on their roster should add Williams. The former Alabama star was considered one of the top prospects in the 2022 NFL Draft. Furthermore, Jared Goff has the 11th-most pass attempts this season and could turn Williams into a valuable fantasy starter once he returns.

  • No Timetable For Jameson Williams' Return

    The Detroit Lions haven't offered a timetable for the return of rookie wide receiver Jameson Williams (knee), but general manager Brad Holmes said the team will take it slow with Williams' recovery from an ACL injury in January. Williams will open the year on the Non-Football Injury list, meaning he'll miss at least the first four games. The Lions have Amon-Ra St. Brown, DJ Chark, Josh Reynolds, Kalif Raymond and Quintez Cephus, so they don't need to rush Williams back. Williams is very intriguing in dynasty/keeper leagues -- he had 79 catches for 1,572 yards and 15 touchdowns at Alabama in 2021 -- but with a delayed start to his rookie season, he might struggle for consistency one he does return in his first NFL season.

  • Jameson Williams Is Ahead Of Schedule

    Detroit Lions wide receiver Jameson Williams (knee) appears to be doing quite well in his recovery process. General manager Brad Holmes believes that Williams is making great progress and could accelerate his return date. The 21-year-old will miss at least the first four games of the season after being placed on the injured reserve. The organization hasn't given a strong timetable for Williams, so fantasy managers shouldn't expect him to return anytime soon. It sounds like Williams is making solid progress, but he'll likely still miss a decent amount of the regular season. He's worth holding in dynasty/keepers formats, but isn't attractive outside of that.
