A QB Away From Fantasy Gold
Mike Williams was a disappointment this season for fantasy football, unless you had the balls to start him in the fantasy playoffs. Mike Williams was the result of bad quarterback play from an aging Philip Rivers. He is a quarterback away from being the monster we all want him to be.
Between 2018 and 2019, Williams went from:
66 targets to 90 targets
64% snap share to 88%
28th in catchable targets to 74th in catchable targets
11 total TDs to 2 TDs
With the above information we can prove clearly see Williams himself didn’t get worse. He is a freak athlete who can win the one on one ball and is a massive TD machine with competent QB play. In weeks 13, 14 and 15 Williams recorded no less than 14.7 fantasy points, and from weeks 9 through 16 he averaged 12 PPR points for game, with a ceiling of 17 points in that span.
Before the draft and free agency come around, Williams is a must buy. With the potential of Tom Brady, Ryan Tannehill, or even (yes I’m going to say it) Andy Dalton are all upgrades from what Rivers was last season. Even if the Chargers draft a rookie QB, competent play is all Williams needs to be the explosive wide receiver we all want him to be.
