Mike Williams start or sit: Week 12 fantasy football advice

We go over the fantasy football outlook of Mike Williams ahead of the LA Chargers Week 12 matchup against the Denver Broncos.

Chargers wideout Mike Williams played the hero in Week 11 as his 53-yard touchdown proved to be the game-winner against the Steelers. Can he make more big plays this week in Denver?

Fantasy Football analysis: Chargers WR Mike Williams

Although everyone will remember how he finished, Williams’ Week 11 developed rather oddly. It looked initially as if he was going to have a huge target game after he saw three looks on the first drive, catching them all for a total of 41 yards. And then he just largely disappeared for three quarters before finding himself all alone on a busted coverage for the winning TD. He has the size and speed to make those long gains; he just hasn’t done it much recently. Prior to that 97-yard outing, Williams had not eclipsed 60 yards since Week 5. He still hasn’t seen more than six targets since that date as well. He will probably see a lot of the Broncos’ 6-foot-2 rookie corner Patrick Surtain II this week, which won’t be an easy matchup. But the possibility of another long score is always lurking with Williams.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Even if you are in just a 10-team league, Williams is still a viable WR3 for Week 12.
