I know, this guy is the big tease. Supremely talented, oft-injured however. He does seem to have good rapport with J. Herbert though. (Who I consider a beast in the making based on my limited eye test of him through 3 games).

I know Williams did some of his damage when K. Allen went out with back spasms, but if Herbert is seemingly going to go off for 300+ yds, each game, I would think the opportunities have to be there for Williams too. Tough one for me as I would have to drop C. Kupp in a non-PPR league.
I’m sure someone here has better knowledge of M. Williams than me, so would appreciate your take on this mercurial man.

Post-Hype sleeper.

Everything (Herbert's insanely high TD %, much more nuanced route runner + elite redzone skillset) is coming together for him to enter that WR2 tier. I don't see elite upside with him, but at his current price there's still a lot of room to return value.

I've always liked him as a player.

I'm not sure if I'd give up Kupp to get him though.

I hear you. But I've only got to start 2 WR's and I start Ridley with DJ Moore (increasingly)...because Kupp has been having some real duds. I'm just thinking (unbelievably) that M-Will. could help win a league of Hebert stays on fire.

Perhaps if there was no Keenan Allen.

I think he’ll be very inconsistent. Have a couple blow up games but do nothing in most.

as long as keenan allen is hogging over 35% of the targets,mike williams will never emerge as the talent he is between allen and henry that close to 65% of the targets,add in the rbs and that leaves very little for mike willaims

That's what I'm expecting.
I don't think he's a reliable starter, but a decent dart to throw if you have to cover byes or injuries.

If Keenan is out, I'm all in.

I'm a keenan owner and hoping he's not out. I also don't own MW.
