  Lions | Jameson Williams activated    Sat Dec 3, 03:55 PM

Detroit Lions WR Jameson Williams (knee) was activated from the Non-Football Injury list, according to a source Saturday, Dec. 3.

Footballguys view: The rookie is available to make his debut in Week 13 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Williams has a skill set based on speed, explosiveness, and precision as a route runner. We'll see how the Lions mix him into their passing game. Williams has the upside to be at least a 'what the heck' flex in his debut.

  Lions | Jameson Williams feeling confident    Fri Dec 2, 11:23 PM

Detroit Lions WR Jameson Williams (knee) said he feels prepared to play in Week 13 but won't push the coaching staff to put him on the field. 'I'm feeling good, feeling back to myself,' Williams said. 'I got a chance to get out there and get some routes, run some plays with the team, do a little bit, so I'm feeling really good right now.'

Footballguys view: Lions fans and Fantasy GMs should be excited about Williams getting out there this season. His game is all about speed, explosion, and precision as a route runner. Williams may be eased into action, but he's got the type of skill to make an immediate impact for the Lions and your fantasy team.

  Lions | Outside chance Jameson Williams debuts in Week 13    Mon Nov 28, 02:19 PM

Detroit Lions WR Jameson Williams (knee) seems unlikely to play in Week 13 versus the Jacksonville Jaguars, as head coach Dan Campbell told reporters that it would be 'a tall order but anything's open.'

Footballguys view: It sounds like there's an outside chance we'll see Williams in Week 13. He was designated to return last week, but the Lions have some time before they activate him. We imagine Williams will get out to practice and then ramp up before his season debut. If Week 13 is a stretch, then perhaps Williams will be out there for Week 14...right in time for the fantasy playoffs. The rookie receiver has plenty of flex appeal with upside when he's out there on the football field.

Detroit Lions WR Amon-Ra St. Brown caught nine of his 10 targets for 122 yards and a touchdown in Week 12 against the Buffalo Bills. St. Brown also added seven yards on an end-around.

Footballguys view: St. Brown came through for his team and for Fantasy GMs. We're excited to see how defenses play the Lions differently when 2022 first-round WR Jameson Williams gets out there in Week 13.

  Lions | Jamaal Williams reaches pay dirt yet again    Thu Nov 24, 04:31 PM

Detroit Lions RB Jamaal Williams rushed for 66 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries in Week 12 versus the Buffalo Bills. Williams also lost a fumble.

Footballguys view: Williams' fumble led to a score by the Bills. He's a touchdown hog this year, scoring as many TDs this season as the entire Broncos offense. Fantasy GMs know what to expect from Williams on a weekly basis.

  Lions | Jameson Williams out for Week 12    Thu Nov 24, 08:19 AM

Detroit Lions WR Jameson Williams (knee) won't play in Week 12, but next week is a real possibility.

Footballguys view: It's a short week with the Lions playing on Thanksgiving. Getting Williams out there in Week 13 will boost their passing game. Williams was a tremendous playmaker in college, and he's got plenty of speed to burn when at full strength. It will be fun to see how quickly he acclimates to the pro game.

Footballguys view: Chark can be a deep threat for the Lions once again now that he's fully participating. From a fantasy perspective, there's not a ton of value with his role.

  Lions | Jameson Williams begins practicing    Mon Nov 21, 10:40 AM

Detroit Lions WR Jameson Williams (knee) was designated to return from the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Nov. 21.

Footballguys view: We're super excited to see what Williams can do in the NFL. The 2022 first-round pick has been working back from the knee injury he suffered in the National Championship Game with Alabama. Now that he's been designated to return, Williams has a 21-day window to officially be activated. The Lions play on Thanksgiving against the Bills, and Williams is unlikely to be ready so quickly. Instead, Fantasy GMs should look at a return for the fantasy playoffs. Get Wiliiams on the waiver wire now if you can stash him on your bench.
