The Facts: It’s fair to ask, what does Williams have in store for 2019? Speaking with reporters on the last day of minicamp, Williams made it clear that he’s set to have an expanded role in year three. “Well, this is my third year going into the offense,” he explained. “I’m a lot more confident coming out here and playing. My role is going to expand with Tyrell (Williams) leaving (to the Raiders). I’m looking forward to that. I’m ready to make some plays this upcoming season.”
Diehards Line: Williams took a massive step forward between his first and second years in the NFL. After all, the wide receiver hauled in 43 passes for 664 yards (15.4 yards per catch) and 10 touchdowns while also carrying the rock seven times for 28 yards (4.0 yards per carry) and another TD. In the process, he became the first Chargers wideout since Tony Martin way back in 1996 to have 10 scrimmage touchdowns in a single season. Those 11 total TDs were also the fourth most among any wideout in the league. If that wasn’t enough, a whopping 83.7-percent of his catches went for a first down, which was the best mark in the NFL. So, what exactly does an “expanded” role mean? Basically, more balls thrown his way as well as increased ways the Bolts will use him.
