Lions Waive Tyrell Williams

The Detroit Lions waived wide receiver Tyrell Williams (concussion) on Friday with an injury settlement. Williams suffered a concussion in the team's Week 1 game and has yet to play since. The 29-year-old was expected to replace Kenny Golladay and serve as quarterback Jared Goff's top receiver in 2021, but that obviously never came to fruition. Even if Williams were to land with another team, it seems unlikely that he'd become a fantasy asset elsewhere since he still hasn't cleared the league's concussion protocol. Rookie Amon-Ra St. Brown and Kaylif Raymond have been Detroit's two most consistent pass-catchers this year outside of running back D'Andre Swift and tight end T.J. Hockenson, but both receivers have been very boom-or-bust in fantasy for the winless Lions.

Tyrell Williams Lands On Injured Reserve

The Detroit Lions placed wide receiver Tyrell Williams (concussion) on Injured Reserve on Thursday and placed kicker Austin Seibert on the COVID-19 list. They also officially signed inside linebacker Josh Woods from the Chicago Bears practice squad. Williams suffered a head injury in the season-opener and did not play in the Week 2 loss to the Green Bay Packers. The 29-year-old will now miss at least the next three weeks as he looks to gain clearance from the NFL's concussion protocol in the meantime. Quintez Cephus, Kalif Raymond and rookie Amon-Ra St. Brown figure to start in three-wide sets in his absence, but tight end T.J. Hockenson and the Lions running backs figure to continue leading the team in targets. Cephus, who led the receivers with 89.5 percent of the offensive snaps and seven targets in Week 2, is the best deep-league flier.

Tyrell Williams Ruled Out For Week 3

Detroit Lions wide receiver Tyrell Williams (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 3 against the Baltimore Ravens. Williams suffered a head injury in the season opener and was held out of the Week 2 loss to the Green Bay Packers. It's a bad sign that the 29-year-old is being ruled out so early in the week, and fantasy managers should consider him questionable for Week 4. With Williams out on Monday night, Quintez Cephus led the Detroit receiving corps with 89.5 percent of the offensive snaps, with Kalif Raymond and rookie Amon-Ra St. Brown following him. The Ravens defense has uncharacteristically allowed 421 receiving yards and three scores to wideouts in the first two weeks, but it'll still be hard to trust Cephus or the others outside of deeper leagues. Tight end T.J. Hockenson and running backs D'Andre Swift and Jamaal Williams should continue seeing most of the targets.

Tyrell Williams Not Expected To Play Against Ravens

Detroit Lions wide receiver Tyrell Williams (concussion) is not expected to play against the Ravens in Week 3. Williams was unable to suit up last week against the Packers and NFL players must pass through certain protocols before being allowed to return to the team from a head injury. Williams was signed in the offseason to lead a very thin wide receivers room and playing without him certainly hampers the passing game. Teammates Amon-Ra St. Brown and Quintez Cephus will be tasked, once again, with picking up the slack.

Sep 18th · 03:35 PM
Tyrell Williams Ruled Out For Monday Night

Detroit Lions head coach Dan Campbell said that wide receiver Tyrell Williams (concussion) has been ruled out for the Monday night meeting with the Green Bay Packers. Williams, the Lions top receiver, had just two catches for 14 yards before he had to leave the Week 1 loss to the San Francisco 49ers with a head injury. After not practicing all week, consider him questionable for Week 3. The Lions have one of the thinnest wide receiver corps in the league, with rookie Amon-Ra St. Brown, Quintez Cephus and Kalif Raymond likely to start in three-receiver sets against Green Bay. Raymond (75 percent) and St. Brown (64.1) saw the biggest snap percentages in the season opener, so they figure to be used the most with Williams out. Trinity Benson should have a bigger role as well, but tight end T.J. Hockenson is the only real fantasy asset that you can trust with any confidence going into Monday night.

Sep 16th · 04:04 PM
Lions Not Optimistic About Tyrell Williams

Detroit Lions head coach Dan Campbell didn't sound optimistic about wide receiver Tyrell Williams (concussion) and his availability for Monday night's game against the Green Bay Packers. Williams remains in the concussion protocol after suffering a head injury in the Week 1 loss to the San Francisco 49ers, and he's not in the building on Thursday. Kalif Raymond and rookie Amon-Ra St. Brown saw the most work alongside Williams in the season opener. Quintez Cephus would likely start in three-receiver sets if Williams is unable to get cleared by Monday. The Lions figure to be in comeback mode against the Packers on the road, but it will still be hard to trust any of their receivers as more than deep-league sleeper options in a flex spot. Tight end T.J. Hockenson will likely remain the team's top receiving threat throughout the season.

Sep 16th · 12:14 AM
Tyrell Williams Not At Practice Wednesday

Detroit Lions wide receiver Tyrell Williams (head) was not seen during the 20 minutes of practice open to the media on Wednesday. Williams took a helmet-to-helmet shot from San Francisco 49ers safety Jaquiski Tartt in the Week 1 loss, and he has since been put in the league's concussion protocol. It's bad news for a team with one of the thinnest receiving corps in the league after losing Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones Jr., Danny Amendola, Marvin Hall, Jamal Agnew and Mohamed Sanu in the offseason. If Williams cannot play on Monday night against the Green Bay Packers, the Lions will likely replace him with some combination of Quintez Cephus and Trinity Benson. Kalif Raymond and rookie Amon-Ra St. Brown would be starters in three-wide sets. Detroit will likely be forced to throw the ball often, but Raymond and St. Brown would be merely dart throws in DFS and deeper leagues. Tight end T.J. Hockenson should continue to eat.

Sep 15th · 02:35 AM
Tyrell Williams Is In Concussion Protocol

Detroit Lions head coach Dan Campbell announced that wide receiver Tyrell Williams (concussion) is in the concussion protocol. In the third quarter of Week 1, Williams got hit in the head by 49ers safety Jaquiski Tartt and was removed from the game. Prior to being taken out, Williams caught two of his three targets for 14 yards. The Lions have one of the weakest receiving corps in the league, but Williams is expected to be the No. 1 option this season. If Williams misses Week 2, Kalif Raymond, Amon-Ra St. Brown and Quintez Cephus could all see an uptick in snaps. St. Brown and Cephus offer the most intrigue, but the Lions No. 1 and No. 2 options on the offense remain tight end T.J. Hockenson and running back D'Andre Swift. It's best to avoid any wide receiver on the Lions at the moment and more should be known on the status of Williams as the week goes on.

Sep 7th · 08:22 PM
Tyrell Williams Hopes To Lead Charge In Week 1

Detroit Lions wide receiver Tyrell Williams will try and establish himself as the WR1 in the Lions offense Week 1 against the 49ers. Williams has had a solid, if uneventful, training camp and will be entrusted to make plays in the passing game right off the bat. He will go up against a 49ers defense that allowed the 15th fewest fantasy points to opposing receivers last season. Obviously, it's a new year but the 49ers struggled covering tall, physical and fast receivers last season. Pass-catchers like D.K. Metcalf and Devante Adams punished the 49ers secondary last season and San Francisco allowed 18 total touchdowns to receivers last season. Williams is not on the talent level of the former players mentioned but the Lions best chance at winning in Week 1 may be based on the success of Williams and tight end T.J. Hockenson. Williams will have WR5 with a low floor heading into Week 1.

Aug 26th · 08:46 PM
Tyrell Williams Battling Through Groin Injury

Detroit Lions wide receiver Tyrell Williams is battling a groin injury but head coach Dan Campbell believes he will practice in full next week. Williams is set to head into Week 1 as the team's unquestioned WR1 on a team that is very thin at wide receiver. Williams has battled injuries his whole career and missed all of last season with a shoulder injury. The 29-year-old posted 42 receptions for 651 yards with six touchdowns for the Raiders in 2019 and will have plenty of opportunity to eclipse those numbers this season. Williams is by no means an ideal WR1 but should benefit from a high volume of targets early on.

Aug 20th · 07:18 PM
Tyrell Williams Sits Atop Lions WR Depth Chart

Detroit Lions wide receiver Tyrell Williams has done enough to sit atop the Lions depth chart at wide receiver. Williams has the size and speed to be a playmaker in a revamped Lions offense and should be their WR1 when Week 1 kicks off. Williams has shaken off a dislocated finger early in camp to become one of the more preferred options for starting quarterback Jared Goff. Williams saw four targets and racked up 30 yards in the team's preseason opener but is not expected to see a lot of action this Saturday in the Lions second exhibition game against the Steelers.

Aug 14th · 02:20 AM
Tyrell Williams Racks Up 30 Yards In Debut

Detroit Lions wide receiver Tyrell Williams caught two passes for 30 yards in the teams first preseason game of the year against the Bills. Williams played the first couple of series with the first-team offense and made an impact on their first scoring drive. Quarterback Jared Goff connected with Williams for a 20-yard gain to set up a field goal and a hint of what the Lions are hoping will be a fruitful pairing between the two. Williams has every chance to step up and become the team's WR1 this season and should see a healthy amount of targets, if healthy, when the season kicks off.

Aug 6th · 09:48 PM
Tyrell Williams Back At Practice Friday

Detroit Lions wide receiver Tyrell Williams (dislocated finger) returned to practice on a limited basis on Friday. The injury doesn't appear to be serious but clearly an injured finger can affect a receiver's production. The Lions are banking on Williams becoming the WR1 in their offense and the talented receiver has dealt with leg and shoulder injuries the past few seasons. Williams' availability will also be important moving forward as new quarterback Jared Goff works to build chemistry with his new offensive weapons.

Aug 2nd · 10:08 PM
Tyrell Williams Looking For Big Plays In Camp

Detroit Lions wide receiver Tyrell Williams has been quiet, thus far, through the first few days of training camp. Williams simply hasn't made a lot of plays, per reports, but this could be attributed to several factors. The talented receiver is in a new offense, is trying to rebound from previous injuries and his new quarterback, Jared Goff, has repeatedly passed on throws downfield for accurate, check-down completions. The Lions are banking on Williams to step up and be the WR1 on the team but it may take some time.

Jul 14th · 12:33 AM
Tyrell Williams Looking At Huge Opportunity

Detroit Lions wide receiver Tyrell Williams will have every chance to lock down the No. 1 receiver spot in Detroit. Williams missed all of the 2020 season due to a shoulder injury and is looking to rebuild his value. When healthy, Williams has the size and speed to blow the top off of defenses while also using his physicality to win in the red zone. In 2019, the 28-year-old caught 42 passes for 651 yards and six touchdowns for the Raiders. The Lions currently are fairly thin and inexperienced at the receiver position, and Williams will have every opportunity to become a player that quarterback Jared Goff can trust in any down and distance.

Mar 3rd · 09:03 PM
Tyrell Williams Agrees With Lions

Former Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Tyrell Williams agreed to a one-year deal worth up to $6.2 million with the Detroit Lions on Wednesday, according to a source. With both Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones set to hit free agency -- Golladay is a candidate to receive the franchise tag -- Williams gives Detroit some insurance at the position heading into free agency in a few weeks. The 29-year-old pass-catcher didn't play at all during the 2020 season due to injury, but he found the end zone six times in 14 games for the Raiders in 2019. He's also had a 1,000-yard season back with the Chargers, so he could rebound if he can stay on the field in 2021. However, being paired up with new quarterback Jared Goff won't give him a ton of fantasy upside, especially if Golladay returns.

Feb 12th · 03:04 AM
Raiders To Release Tyrell Williams

The Las Vegas Raiders plan to release wide receiver Tyrell Williams at the start of the new league year next month, according to a source. Williams missed all of the 2020 season with a shoulder injury that required surgery. But he's turning just 29 years old on Friday and should be fully healthy in two to three weeks. He caught 42 passes for 651 yards and six touchdowns in 14 games for Oakland back in 2019. Williams currently accounts for the fifth-highest salary cap number on the team's roster for 2021 at $11.6 million, and Las Vegas can save around $1 million by releasing him. He could face a cold market with the salary cap lowered around the league, but Williams could be a WR4/5 if he's healthy in 2021 and lands in the right situation.

Tyrell Williams Placed On Injured Reserve

Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Tyrell Williams (torn labrum) has been placed on the injured reserve, ending his 2020 season before it began. Williams was a popular sleeper pick in 2019 but faded as the sent went along, but he was still poised to have a solid role this year. Now, expect rookie Bryan Edwards to step in as one of the team's main receivers. This Vegas team isn't where you should be looking for fantasy starters, but Edwards, Henry Ruggs III, and Hunter Renfrow all have value as late round picks. Someone will be fantasy relevant here.

Aug 24th · 10:59 PM
Tyrell Williams Has Torn Shoulder Labrum

Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Tyrell Williams (shoulder) has a torn labrum in his shoulder, but he's going to try and play through it after rehabbing for a few weeks, according to sources. You shouldn't count on Williams being ready to go for Week 1, but he'll do his best to try. The 28-year-old big-play wideout should be dropped down fantasy draft boards with his news, obviously, and rookies Henry Ruggs III and Bryan Edwards should have roles to kick off the season, regardless of whether Williams is on the field for the regular season opener. Williams had 42 catches for 651 yards and six touchdowns in 2019 for the Raiders. Both Hunter Renfrow and tight end Darren Waller will also benefit from more targets if Williams can't go for Week 1.

Feb 21st · 07:30 PM
Tyrell Williams Making Good Progress

Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Tyrell Williams (foot) is making good progress from the plantar fasciitis issues he dealt with last season. In his first year with the Raiders, Williams caught 42 passes for 651 yards and six touchdowns. He only missed two games but was slowed by his foot issues, mostly in the second half. Williams started off with five touchdowns in his first five games, but he predictably fell off from there with just one more touchdown on the season. He gives the Raiders a downfield threat, but the problem is that quarterback Derek Carr doesn't often challenge defenses deep. If Las Vegas addresses the receiver position in free agency or the draft, Williams could have even more trouble being a consistent performer. As of now, he's a touchdown-dependent flex option.

Dec 27th · 07:24 PM
Tyrell Williams Will Play In Week 17

Oakland Raiders head coach Jon Gruden said that wide receiver Tyrell Williams (foot) will play in Week 17 against the Broncos. The Raiders will likely be without rookie running back Josh Jacobs (shoulder) in this must-win divisional tilt, but Williams will be on the field. He opened the season with touchdowns in five straight games, but the first-year Raider predictably fell off after that and has been playing through a foot injury of late. He's yet to be targeted more than seven times in a game in 2019 and will remain a touchdown-dependent WR4 for fantasy owners. Williams had six catches for 105 yards and a touchdown in the season opener against Denver, but it'd be a surprise if he bested that this weekend.

Dec 20th · 12:46 AM
Tyrell Williams A WR4 Versus Chargers

Oakland Raiders wide receiver Tyrell Williams ended his touchdown slump last weekend with a 40-yard score, but it's hard to trust the veteran for championship weekend. He's seen his overall production significantly drop off over the last four weeks, averaging just two catches and 27 yards a game in this span. It won't help his cause either that his LA Chargers opponent this weekend has seen key pieces of their defense return to action, allowing just two TD passes to the position since Week 7. Williams remains a boom-or-bust player this Sunday whose fantasy production depends on finding the end zone.

Dec 16th · 12:02 AM
Tyrell Williams Hits Paydirt In Week 15

Oakland Raiders wide receiver Tyrell Williams broke his six-game scoreless drought by hitting a 40-yard score on the first drive of the game in the team's 20-16 loss to the Jaguars. He broke a sure-tackle about ten yards down the field and ran for the rest untouched for the touchdown. Williams failed to do much the rest of the way, adding just one catch for five yards the rest of the way as the offense as a whole sputtered in the second half. The veteran hasn't shown any consistency this season and is a risky play for the fantasy championship next week. Williams will be a TD-dependant WR4 in a road date with the Chargers who held him to 25 yards back in Week 10.

Dec 13th · 04:55 AM
Tyrell Williams Still Bothered By Foot

Oakland Raiders offensive coordinator Greg Olson said that wide receiver Tyrell Williams (foot) is still bothered by his plantar fasciitis. "Plantar fasciitis, its a pretty significant injury, but hes battling through it. Hes taking medication before every game trying to manage the pain," Olson said. The first-year Raider opened the year like gangbusters with five straight games finding the end zone. He predictably fell off from there and has just six catches for 62 scoreless yards the last three games against the Jets, Chiefs and Titans. He hasn't gone over 100 yards in a single game this year and also doesn't have more than seven targets in a game in 2019. Williams is a low-upside, low-volume, touchdown-dependent WR3/4 for fantasy owners. Throw in his lingering foot injury and you have a player to avoid.

Dec 13th · 12:57 AM
Tyrell Williams A Touchdown-Dependant WR4

Oakland Raiders wide receiver Tyrell Williams has disappointed fantasy owners so far in the second half of the season. He's been held to under 50 receiving yards in five of his last six games, and hasn't eclipsed triple-digits since Week 1. Williams has also gone six straight games without a touchdown, making him hard to trust versus the Jaguars this week. The Jacksonville defense has allowed the 13th fewest points to the position this season and has notably been burned on the ground in recent weeks. The Raiders will undoubtedly keep their run-first mentality, creating even less volume for the team's pass-catchers. Williams is a TD-dependant WR4 for Week 15, and shouldn't be trusted for the fantasy playoffs.

Are NFL Trade Rumor Covered in the Player News?

“The Atlanta Falcons are not expected to trade quarterback Matt Ryan this offseason, according to sources. “The Falcons have not had any trade conversations about Ryan or their star wide receiver Julio Jones. And every expectation is both players are going to be on the roster in 2021,” NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero said. New head coach Arthur Smith plans to run a similar offense to the one Kyle Shanahan used when Ryan won MVP in 2016. Atlanta would be on the hook for more than $44 million in dead money in 2021 if they traded Ryan before June 1. Atlanta may decide to take Ryan’s heir-apparent at No. 4 overall in the draft, but the 35-year-old signal-caller is expected to stay put for at least another season. Ryan and Jones got it going to end the regular season and could be in line for bounce-back campaigns under Smith in 2021. Consider Ryan a midrange QB1 heading into next season.”
