Few wideouts in the NFL are capable of having the dominant performances that Mike Williams is. With his massive 6’4″ and 218-pound frame, there are not many defensive backs who are capable of matching up with him one on one. This match-up advantage helped him rack up 295 yards and four touchdowns across his first four games on 2021.
However, the reason Williams ranks low on this list, he has not been able to string these performances together across a full season. So while he recorded 76 receptions for 1,146 yards and nine touchdowns last season, he left some meat on the bone by disappearing for stretches of games.
Even still, Williams’s high-end performances and WR1 capabilities make him one of the most dangerous weapons in the division, especially with quarterback Justin Herbert throwing him the ball.
Part of one of the league’s best receiver duos, Williams will once again be a force to be reckoned with as he looks to justify his new contract extension and build off what was a successful fifth season in 2021.
