Mike Williams finds end zone for solid fantasy outing in Week 8

Adam Bettcher

Mike Williams led the Buccaneers in receptions against the Vikings. We break down the fantasy implications.

Mike Williams caught six passes for 68 yards and a touchdown on Thursday night against the Vikings. He led the team with 11 targets from Josh Freemen, and easily outperformed Vincent Jackson in the receiving game.

Williams tiptoed his way to an impressive score in the back of the end zone in the second quarter. He has now scored in four of seven games in 2012.

Fantasy Impact: We've only seen two weeks where Williams completely let down fantasy owners. He's built a nice rapport with Freeman in their short tenure together, and he's now benefiting from single coverage with defenses honing in on Jackson.

You can feel confident about starting Williams next week against a poor Raiders secondary.
