The Oakland Raiders are facing the Chicago Bears in London in Week 5, and they have a question about one of their top playmakers after their first day of practice. Wide receiver Tyrell Williams sat out practice on Wednesday, according to Raiders reporter Anthony Galaviz.

Williams has been the Raiders leading wide receiver, with 17 receptions for 216 yards and four touchdowns. He was on the Week 2 and Week 3 injury reports with a hip injury, but that was removed from the report for Week 4. The foot injury is a new one that did not appear to cost him snaps this past weekend, but will be something to track.

Fantasy analysis of Oakland Raiders wide receiver Tyrell Williams

Darren Waller has been the Raiders leading pass catcher, while Williams has emerged as Derek Carr’s second favorite target. Williams has found the end zone every week, offering value in both standard and PPR leagues.

The Raiders face a stout Bears defense in Week 5, so his value takes a hit even if he is completely healthy. Chicago gives up the 12th fewest points to opposing wide receivers and 13th fewest to opposing tight ends. Waller seems like he remains a consistently good start, but Williams is more flex or WR3 option at this point.
