2022 Fantasy Outlook
Williams might've been the first WR selected in the 2022 Draft if not for his ACL tear in the national title game last season. It was a disappointing end to a phenomenal year, with Williams averaging 104.8 yards and a TD per game in his lone season at Alabama after transferring from OSU. The Lions took him 12th overall, despite the knee injury and his lack of production at OSU pre-transfer. Naturally, two of the guys who played ahead of Williams at OSU were drafted right ahead of him - Chris Olave (Saints) and Garrett Wilson (Jets). None has an ideal situation for rookie-year production, but it'll be especially difficult for Williams given the timing of his injury. It's possible he's eased into action once he returns from his stint (at least four games) on the NFL list and he may fall behind Amon-Ra St. Brown and DJ Chark when it comes to building chemistry with QB Jared Goff. On the other hand, Williams is blazing fast, young for his draft class and coming off a dominant campaign in the SEC, making it unwise to bet against him long term. Read Past Outlooks

Big play wiped out by penalty

January 12, 2023
Williams played 14 of the Lions' 60 snaps on offense and failed to reel in his lone target in Sunday's 20-16 win over the Packers.
ANALYSIS
Though he went without any official receptions in the Lions' regular-season finale, Williams provided a glimpse of his vast potential on what would have been a 66-yard touchdown reception in the second quarter that was ultimately wiped out by a holding penalty. On the play in question, Williams found an opening in the defense behind Packers safety Darnell Savage, then jetted past Green Bay safety Adrian Amos on his way to what would have been his second career touchdown and third 40-plus-yard play. After the rookie first-round pick was cleared to make his season debut Week 13 upon completing his recovery from an ACL tear suffered this past January, Williams played less than a quarter of the snaps on offense in each of his six appearances while hauling in just one of his nine targets. Despite Williams' light use coming off the knee injury, general manager Brad Holmes said Tuesday that he maintains high expectations for the No. 12 overall pick of the 2022 NFL Draft heading into Year 2, per John Maakaron of SI.com. However, with Amon-Ra St. Brown, Josh Reynolds and Kalif Raymond all under contract for 2023 and with DJ Chark expected to work toward a new deal with Detroit, Williams will likely have to work his way up the depth chart in OTAs and training camp in order to claim a top-three role at receiver entering his second season.
