  • Lions' Jameson Williams: Scores on double reverse

    Williams secured his only target for 11 yards while rushing once for 19 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's win over the Saints.

    Williams again logged around 60 percent of the offensive snaps, but an increased workload in the passing game has yet to follow the jump in playing time he is seeing. At least Williams made the most of the touches he had, with one of the game's highlights being a double reverse that saw Willams display his high-end speed for a 19-yard rushing touchdown. The Alabama product will next take aim at a Chicago defense allowing the sixth-most points per game (24.7) in 2023.

  • Lions' Jameson Williams: Role expanding

    Offensive coordinator Ben Johnson indicated that Williams could see increased usage moving forward. "[Williams'] reps are going up. He continues to get out there and the ball is just going to keep gravitating to him a little bit more than it already has."

    After seeing no more than a quarter of the offensive snaps in any game as a rookie and no more than 50 percent in any game before Detroit's Week 9 bye week, Williams logged between 52 and 68 percent of the offensive snaps in each of the three games since the bye. While the Alabama product didn't see more than three targets in any of them, there is legitimate hope that his workload could increase since nothing correlates stronger with statistical production than playing time.

  • Lions' Jameson Williams: Totals 51 yards

    Williams caught two of three targets for 51 yards during Thursday's loss to the Packers.

    While Williams' 58 percent snap share is a downturn from the career-high 68 percent he saw last week, he set a new career high with 49 offensive snaps on a day the Lions ran 84 offensive plays. That figure matched No. 2 wide receiver Josh Reynolds, who had consistently been seeing around three quarters of the offensive snaps when healthy this year, though Kalif Raymond and Donovan Peoples-Jones saw added snaps as well. However, even though the recent increase in playing time has been a positive development for Williams, he'll likely need to evolve into the clear No. 2 wide receiver behind Amon-Ra St. Brown in order to gain fantasy relevance in a passing game otherwise headed by tight end Sam LaPorta and running back Jahmyr Gibbs.

  • Lions' Jameson Williams: Two catches in Week 11 win

    Williams caught two of three targets for 44 yards and one touchdown in Sunday's 31-26 win over the Bears.

    Most of Williams' yardage came on a 32-yard touchdown catch, which is his second-longest play of the season after a 45-yard touchdown reception against the Buccaneers in Week 6. The big-play threat has drawn more than three targets only once in six 2023 appearances heading into Thursday's home game against the Packers on Thanksgiving.

  • Lions' Jameson Williams: Takes step in right direction

    Williams secured both of his targets for 18 yards during Sunday's 41-38 win over the Chargers.

    While Williams has yet to put together a breakout performance, he seemingly took a step in the right direction while logging a career-high 52 percent of the offensive snaps coming out of Detroit's bye week. In addition to not dropping any of his passes, Williams made a key block during David Montgomery's 75-yard touchdown scamper that contributed heavily to the Lions' three-point win. Given that offensive coordinator Ben Johnson reportedly told Williams that his involvement in the offense won't grow unless he first improves as a blocker, per John Maakaron of Sports Illustrated, this performance should lead to a bigger role. However, one complicating factor is the presence of the recently acquired Donovan Peoples-Jones (ribs), who has yet to play a snap for the Lions as he gets healthy and learns the playbook.
