Mike Williams Could Be Odd Man Out In 2024

Thursday, February 29, 2:51 PM

The Athletic's Daniel Popper suggests that Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams (knee) could be the odd man out among fellow receiver Keenan Allen and pass-rushers Joey Bosa and Khalil Mack this offseason. Williams and the other three players have huge salary cap hits this year after they were all restructured last offseason. Together, they are projected to account for close to 60% of the team's cap in 2024, according to Over the Cap. It's highly unlikely all four players will be on the roster this fall. Williams is coming off a torn ACL and has the second-highest receiver cap hit in the league at $32.46 million (Allen has the highest). If Williams is cut, the Chargers would save $20 million. And if Williams is gone, former first-rounder Quentin Johnston should have a much bigger role in his sophomore season after he was a big disappointment his rookie year.

Jameson Williams To Push To Be Full-Time Starter

Tuesday, February 27, 3:26 PM

Detroit Lions head coach Dan Campbell said that wide receiver Jameson Williams is going to push to be a full-time starter in 2024. "By the end of the year, we really felt like he was coming into his own," Campbell said of Williams. The 22-year-old former first-round pick was suspended for the first month of his sophomore season in 2023 due to gambling and ended up finishing the regular season with 24 catches on 42 targets for 354 yards and two touchdowns in 12 games (10 starts). He added a TD on three rushing attempts. Williams steadily saw more time on the field as the season progressed, but he wasn't much of a factor as a deep threat with quarterback Jared Goff preferring underneath routes. As long as Goff is Detroit's starting QB, Williams will likely be a boom/bust fantasy receiver.
