Buccaneers Mike Williams is questionable for Thursday, fantasy owners will have to wait

Mike Williams is questionable for Thursday Night Football. We break down the fantasy implications.

Buccaneers Mike Williams (knee) is listed as questionable for Thursday Night Football against the Panthers. He returned Week 7 against the Falcons with only four receptions for 32 yards. after suffering the injury back in September.

Williams was off to a nice start, but he still hasn't quite got the ball rolling with 19 catches for 196 yards and two scores on the year.

The Bucs haven't had much success at moving the ball through the air outside of Vincent Jackson, plus tight end Tim Wright has become more involved in the offense. Quarterback Mike Glennon has yet to throw for more than 275 yards in a game or cleared 6.4 yards per attempt, which is below average among most starting NFL quarterbacks.

Fantasy impact: The Panthers have shut down their fair share of receivers and Williams isn't at 100 percent, so things aren't shaping up for him to have a nice game. Outside of Jackson, there isn't a whole lot to like about Tampa's current passing attack. Williams should remain owned in 12-team leagues.
