Mike Williams Has A Torn ACL

Monday, September 25, 1:17 PM

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams (knee) suffered a torn ACL in the Week 3 win over the Minnesota Vikings and is out for the rest of the season, an MRI exam confirmed, according to a source. It didn't look good when Williams needed help getting off the field in Minnesota on Sunday and then was carted to the locker room with a towel over his head. The team's and fantasy managers' worst fears have been realized, and now they'll be without him for the rest of 2023. The biggest beneficiary will be Joshua Palmer, who caught four of seven targets for 66 yards and his first touchdown of the year in Week 3. Fantasy managers that have Williams or are looking for a wideout should make Palmer a high waiver priority this week. Rookie first-rounder Quentin Johnston will also be thrust into a bigger role immediately.

Christian Kirk a Shaky Flex Option at Texans

Wednesday, September 20, 10:14 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Christian Kirk takes on the Houston Texans in a divisional Week 3 matchup. After logging one catch in Week 1, Kirk came back to lead the Jaguars in targets (14) against the Chiefs, hauling in 11 passes for 110 yards. However, Kirk still remains a shaky play, especially against the surprisingly decent pass defense of Houston. Predicting the Jags receivers' boom games might be one of the more difficult things to do in fantasy this year. Calvin Ridley remains a must-start, but Kirk fits into the boom-or-bust WR3 category, especially against a team that held him to three receptions for 32 yards over two games last season.
