Bills | Mike Williams starts

Fri, 08 Aug 2014 20:05:42 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Mike Williams started ahead of WR Robert Woods in the preseason game against the Carolina Panthers Friday, Aug. 8. Williams had one grab for 28 yards, while Woods led the team with four grabs and he posted 31 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Williams and Woods are battling for a starting job, and it appears Williams has a leg up after starting the first two exhibition games. However, there is plenty of time remaining in training camp and the preseason. The winner of the battle will be best used as a WR4 in most fantasy formats.

Bills | Mike Williams feeling good at start of camp

Sat, 19 Jul 2014 12:29:03 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Mike Williams said he felt good after participating in conditioning workouts on the first day of training camp Saturday, July 19. "I'm fully ready to go," Williams said. "I trained this whole offseason. There was really no offseason for me. I kinda had to get my leg better. I had to get back to feeling like Mike again, like my mom always tells me. Today running that conditioning test made me feel like I was Mike again." Williams had missed several spring practices to rest a surgically-repaired hamstring.

Bills | Mike Williams could be big factor in red zone

Mon, 14 Jul 2014 17:59:56 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Mike Williams could become one of the main weapons in the red zone for the team this season because of his physical style of play, according to ESPN.com's Mike Rodak. Last year, the Bills were one of just four teams to finish with a red zone touchdown efficiency of less than 50 percent.

Fantasy Tip: Williams will likely be the No. 3 receiver behind Sammy Watkins and Robert Woods, but if he can carve out a role as EJ Manuel's primary red zone target, he could be worth a look as a WR3 when the Bills have friendly matchups.

Bills | Mike Williams not a lock to make team

Mon, 16 Jun 2014 10:50:57 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Mike Williams was a disappointment at organized team activities and may be on the bubble if he doesn't improve, according to a source. Buffalo will keep WRs Marquise Goodwin and Marcus Easley on the roster, so Williams will have to beat out WRs T.J. Graham and Chris Hogan to earn a spot.

Bills | Mike Williams enters intervention program

Thu, 29 May 2014 14:21:32 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Mike Williams will re-enter a pre-trial intervention program that will allow him to avoid two misdemeanor charges. Williams took part in organized team activities for a second straight day Thursday, May 29, as he's facing misdemeanor charges of trespassing and criminal mischief after he reportedly caused $200 in damage to his girlfriend's front door last year.

Bills | Sammy Watkins to contribute immediately

Fri, 09 May 2014 14:01:55 -0700

The Buffalo Bills believe WR Sammy Watkins will contribute to their offense "immediately," and they view him among the likes of Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones and Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green. Watkins is expected to be the team's No. 1 wideout, followed by WR Robert Woods. After that, the team will find a way to fit WRs Mike Williams, Marquise Goodwin and T.J. Graham into the picture.

Fantasy Tip: It's always risky to expect too much out of a wideout in his first season, especially as he grows with young QB EJ Manuel. Still, Watkins has the tools to be great, even in his first year. For now, consider him a WR3 until we see more.

Bills | T.J. Graham on roster bubble

Fri, 04 Apr 2014 10:21:11 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR T.J. Graham is firmly on the roster bubble after the team traded for WR Mike Williams. Graham started in only six games last year and is more of a one-dimensional player due to his speed. Buffalo is now unlikely to target Clemson WR Sammy Watkins or Texas A&M WR Mike Evans in the NFL Draft.

Buccaneers | Mike Williams traded

Fri, 04 Apr 2014 08:57:30 -0700

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers traded WR Mike Williams to the Buffalo Bills Friday, April 4, in exchange for a sixth-round draft pick in this year's draft.

Fantasy Tip: The trade leaves a gaping whole at the wide receiver position opposite Vincent Jackson. You can bet the Bucs will look to the draft to rectify that, possibly with their first-round pick (seventh overall). Even if they land a stud wide receiver in the draft to take over for Williams, a learning curve will be there, and opposing defenses will likely pay plenty of attention to Jackson. This trade could hurt his value in 2014.

Bills | Trade for Mike Williams

Fri, 04 Apr 2014 08:51:12 -0700

The Buffalo Bills acquired WR Mike Williams from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Friday, April 4, in exchange for a sixth-round draft pick, according to a league source. Williams suffered injuries last year that left him with only 22 catches (a career low) for 216 yards in six games.

Fantasy Tip: A lot will depend on the development of EJ Manuel, but Buffalo's offense just became that much more explosive, giving them a proven wideout opposite Stevie Johnson. If Williams can remain healthy, he should be a solid WR3.

Mon, 28 Oct 2013 08:40:14 -0700

Buccaneers | Mike Williams has torn hamstring

Fri, 25 Oct 2013 16:14:05 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Williams (hamstring) said he is dealing with a torn hamstring.

Fantasy Tip: Williams likely will miss some playing time but owners should wait until a timetable is given until they consider dropping him. If he does miss a significant amount of time, Tiquan Underwood and Timothy Wright likely will gain more fantasy value and could be targets if available in leagues.

Buccaneers | Mike Williams questionable

Wed, 23 Oct 2013 15:22:01 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Williams (hamstring) practiced in full Wednesday, Oct. 23, but is questionable for Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: The good news is that he practiced in full, which likely means he'll play on Thursday night. However, he probably won't be 100 percent healthy, and Vincent Jackson has become Mike Glennon's go-to wideout. Williams is a weak flex play right now.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Williams (hamstring) was limited in practice Friday, Oct. 11, and is questionable in Week 6 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fantasy Tip: Even with a rookie throwing his way, Williams could have success against the Philadelphia Eagles secondary if he plays. Vincent Jackson is back to full health, too, so Williams won't be double teamed, either.
