Game day Update: Williams is officially active for Week 11, and the Chargers are also getting Keenan Allen back so the top receivers are in for LA.
Game day Update: Williams will play on Sunday night for the first time since Week 7. Despite missing the last two games, Williams is still the leading receiver on the team. He is expected to have a full workload and should find his way back to your fantasy football lineups.
Keenan Allen and Mike Williams will both play for the #Chargers tonight, with Williams expected to get a full workload and Allen likely on a pitch count, per source. Could be in the range of 30-to-35-snaps for Allen, but he will be a factor for a pivotal game.— Jeremy Fowler (@JFowlerESPN) November 20, 2022
Game day Update: Williams is expected to play on Sunday night. He has been sidelined for the last four weeks but should bring a much-needed spark to the Chargers' offense. Williams is expected to return alongside Keenan Allen, giving an instant boost to the outlook for quarterback Justin Herbert.
#Chargers WRs Keenan Allen (hamstring) and WR Mike Williams (ankle) are both hopeful of playing, sources say, and that is the expectation. At long last.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) November 20, 2022
The Los Angeles Chargers got a pleasant surprise at Friday’s practice — wide receiver Mike Williams was a full participant. Out since Week 7 with an ankle injury, Williams will be a welcome addition to the lineup, assuming he plays, when the Chargers take on the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday night.
Williams said Friday that he was good to go, but you’ll want to double check the news Sunday to confirm that he’s playing.
Fantasy football implications
The Chargers have been without Williams and Keenan Allen for the last two games, leaving Josh Palmer and DeAndre Carter to handle most of the receiving duties. This week, both Allen, who’s been out for all but two games this season, and Williams are on track to play.
This game has the potential to be a high-scoring affair, giving a healthy Williams a nice ceiling for fantasy. However, Williams has played three games this season where he finished with fewer than 20 yards, so that’s something to factor into your decisions, assuming he plays.
