Time is now for Chargers’ Mike Williams ‘to step up’
At a seminal victory for the Chargers in 2018, it was Mike Williams who came up clutch and also made in prime time.
Since the 2019 season inches nearer, it is Williams who will need to come up clutch and also produce no matter what period as his role will no doubt increase with the Los Angeles crime.
Quite simply, as one Williams has departed, yet another Williams will arrive at his place.
“We lost a big weapon in Tyrell [Williams into the Raiders, so] a lot of people in the area have to step up,” Mike Williams told reporters via the team site. “I feel like me being the player that I am, I feel like I could do that… I feel as the function will change. I believe I’m going to find far more chances than I did this past year. A good deal more chunks coming my way. I am looking forward to it”
Within the statistics, there is plenty of evidence this Williams came up clutch lots of times this past year.
He was tops among all receivers with 83.7 percent of receptions going for first downs and his nose to the end zone has been exhibited to the song of 11 total touchdowns.
His consistency wavered, though, as he had one catch or fewer in six matches. Then there was the above big game in prime time, as he hauled in a season-high seven catches for 76 yards and two touchdowns in the Chargers’ 29-28 triumph over the Chiefs in Week 14. So he flashed , but also came up empty.
That will have to change since he probably joins Keenan Allen and Travis Benjamin at L.A.’s starting receiver group.
At 6-foot-4 and 220 pounds, Williams is your prototypical NFL wideout. He’s been on the depth chart behind the likes of Allen and another Williams. His figures improved greatly out of his rookie year into his sophomore season, rising from 11 catches for 95 yards in 10 games with one start to 43 grabs for 664 yards and 10 receiving scores in 16 games with five starts. All the signs are there to get a large leap for Williams in 2019, including what he’s saying.
“Well, this is my third season going into the crime,” he said. “I am a lot more positive coming out here and playing. My role will expand with Tyrell leaving. I’m looking forward to that. I am ready to make some plays this forthcoming season.”
