This is one guy I have been following closely for a while; since his days back at Clemson. It was not a secret that Mike Williams had superior talent going into the draft. He reminds me a lot of Julio Jones and lengthy receivers that can make nearly impossible catches. The Chargers drafted him in this first round, which was upsetting to me because I felt as if he had the talent to be the cornerstone receiver on a team ready to rebuild. But, with an aging Philip Rivers and a three-way target share between Hunter Henry, Keenan Allen, and Williams, it was hard for him to come close to reaching his potential. This year the narrative seems to be shifting in Los Angeles due to their phenom gunslinger Justin Herbert. Herbert has targeted Williams 22 times and his 15 receptions rank top-five in the NFL. Herbert even came out and said they need to give Williams the ball more and in an offense like this, we can expect big things to come with Mike Williams.
Three Investments to Consider
Listen, he has had a slow start, but last week the Dolphins were playing from way behind and had to start throwing the ball. Tua also went down with a rib injury, which ultimately shifted the Dolphins game plan. Listen, Gaskin was still targeted five times and hauled in four of those targets for 21 yards. Not much on the side of numbers, but it seems as if he is still the primary back in Miami. Anytime you have a primary back that can catch and run the ball, you want to invest some stock in them, especially with how thin the position is right now.
