Mike Williams Placed On PUP List

New York Jets wide receiver Mike Williams (knee) has been placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list on Thursday. This should not come as a shock considering Williams is still rehabbing from an ACL tear from last season. The organization is hopeful that Williams will be ready to play by Week 1. There is still plenty of time between now and the beginning of the football season. The missed reps are going to hurt considering Williams has joined a new team this offseason. Despite that, Williams should almost certainly be a viable option once he's cleared to play.

Mike Williams On Track For August Activation

New York Jets wide receiver Mike Williams (knee) will likely be placed on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list when teams are required to do so in late July, but head coach Robert Saleh said Williams is on a similar recovery timeframe as Breece Hall from last season, who was activated off the PUP list in mid-August. This is good news for the New York offense that desperately needs wide receiver help behind Garrett Wilson. Williams suffered a torn ACL in Week 3 of last season, meaning he could realistically be ready for Week 1. That said, it could take a few weeks for the former Chargers first-round pick to get into game shape. The 29-year-old has been an up-and-down fantasy option for most of his career, and it'll likely be more of the same in his first season with Gang Green. He's an attractive asset in best ball formats, but fantasy managers should expect down weeks in "start 'em, sit 'em" leagues.

No Timeline For Mike Williams

New York Jets wide receiver Mike Williams (knee) has been rehabbing, and head coach Robert Saleh said he is progressing and looks good. However, Saleh told reporters on Wednesday at organized team activities that he doesn't have a timeline on Williams' return to practice. Williams suffered a torn left ACL in Week 3 last year in his final season with the Los Angeles Chargers and then signed a one-year, $10 million deal with the Jets in free agency this offseason. The 29-year-old big-bodied wideout could be ready to go for the Week 1 regular season opener, but he's currently missing valuable offseason repetitions with the Jets' first-team offense and quarterback Aaron Rodgers. When he's healthy, he figures to be the team's No. 2 wideout behind Garrett Wilson, which will give him plenty of touchdown appeal as long as both he and Rodgers can stay healthy.

Mike Williams Not Cleared For Football Activities

New York Jets wide receiver Mike Williams (knee) is not cleared yet for football activities and was seen working off to the side during organized team activities on Tuesday. It shouldn't be much of a surprise after Williams suffered a season-ending torn left ACL while playing for the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 3 in 2023. The 29-year-old is missing valuable repetitions as he tries to learn a new offense in New York, but barring setbacks in his rehab, he should be ready for on-field work for the start of training camp at the end of July. When healthy, he'll give quarterback Aaron Rodgers a big-bodied target down the field and in the red zone across from young stud receiver Garrett Wilson. Fantasy managers aren't going to spend much to roster Williams because of his lengthy injury history, and he's likely to be a boom-or-bust, touchdown-dependent wideout in an offense with a lot of mouths to feed.

Mike Williams Not Expected To Be Ready For Training Camp

New York Jets wide receiver Mike Williams (knee) is unlikely to take part in training camp, according to general manager Joe Douglas. "Mike's rehabbing the knee injury. I would say he's not gonna be ready for the start of training camp, but again, there's a lot of time, so we'll see how the rehab progresses, Douglas said. "There's a lot of checkpoints to hit, but we do feel confident that he's gonna be ready for the year." The 29-year-old is coming off an ACL tear he suffered in Week 3 of last season, so the injury update is not much of a surprise. The longtime Los Angeles Charger is expected to fill the WR2 role behind Garrett Wilson this season. Although he has durability concerns, the contested-catch specialist could do serious damage with Aaron Rodgers at the helm, making him an intriguing best ball target in 2024.

Mike Williams Says He'll Be Ready For Week 1

New York Jets wide receiver Mike Williams (knee), who is four-plus months removed from surgery to fix a torn ACL, said that he will be ready for Week 1 this fall. Williams tore his ACL in Week 3 with the Los Angeles Chargers last year and missed the rest of the season. The 29-year-old was cut by the Bolts for salary cap purposes this offseason and quickly signed a one-year deal with the Jets worth up to $15 million in 2024. The 6-foot-4, 218-pound former first-rounder will give quarterback Aaron Rodgers a big target across from Garrett Wilson, which should allow him to put up some spike weeks for fantasy managers. However, it remains to be seen how effective the oft-injured wideout will coming off his significant knee injury. Most likely, Williams will be a boom-or-bust fantasy receiver in 2024 with plenty of injury risk.

Mike Williams Signing With Jets

Former Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams (knee) is signing with the New York Jets, according to NFL insider Adam Schefter. The 29-year-old will ink a one-year deal worth up to $15 million. Williams was recently released by the Chargers after seven seasons with the organization. He totaled 309 receptions for 4,806 yards and 31 touchdowns with the Bolts. He'll now join an offense with Aaron Rodgers, Breece Hall, and Garrett Wilson, so assuming he has a successful recovery from a torn ACL suffered in Week 3 of last season, he could be due for spike weeks in 2024 fantasy football. That said, he has struggled to stay on the field over the last two years after a 1,146-yard season in 2021, so fantasy managers should proceed with caution when considering him in drafts this year.

Mike Williams Has Multiple Suitors

Free-agent wide receiver Mike Williams reportedly has scheduled visits with multiple teams this upcoming week. The Los Angeles Chargers made Williams a cap-casualty late last week. Since then, the Chargers have traded fellow wideout Keenan Allen and expressed interest in bringing back Williams. Despite that, Williams is scheduled to visit with the New York Jets, Carolina Panthers, and Pittsburgh Steelers this week. All three teams have a need for Williams, so he'd likely be a legitimate threat on any of them. Williams does have a lengthy injury history but has proven to be reliable when healthy.

Panthers To Host Mike Williams On A Visit

The Carolina Panthers plan to host former Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams (knee) for a visit next week, according to a league source. Williams, who suffered a season-ending torn ACL in Week 3 of last year, was released earlier this week due to salary cap purposes. The 29-year-old they call Big Mike was set to make $20 million in the final year of his three-year extension in 2024. Now that most of the big free agents have already chosen new teams, Williams is one of the biggest names available on the open market and would give young quarterback Bryce Young a big new target in the passing game after Carolina already traded for wideout Diontae Johnson. The former seventh overall pick in 2017 by the Bolts out of Clemson has two 1,000-yard seasons in his seven NFL campaigns and scored nine touchdowns in 2021, but his lengthy injury history outweighs his upside at this point.

Mike Williams Being Released By Chargers

Veteran wide receiver Mike Williams (knee) is being released by the Los Angeles Chargers after seven seasons with the organization, as reported by NFL insider Ian Rapoport. The move clears $20 million in cap space for L.A. Originally the No. 7 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft by the Chargers, Williams has racked up 309 receptions for 4,806 yards and 31 touchdowns in 88 games. He's flashed plenty of upside in his career, but injuries have been an issue. The 29-year-old has not played a full season since 2018 and was limited to just three games last year before suffering a torn ACL. Either way, there should be plenty of interest from other teams for the contested catch specialist given the premium that is placed on wide receivers in today's game.
