Mike Williams injury update: Buccaneers WR questionable, but should play

Mark L. Baer-USA TODAY Sports

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Williams is questionable, but should be able to play on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Williams is officially questionable for Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals. Williams is dealing with a hamstring injury that he sustained against the New England Patriots in Week 3. He did return to the game after sustaining the injury.

Williams has been so-so for the Bucs this season. He has just 126 receiving yards off of 11 receptions through three games. The Buccaneers have also had terrible quarterback play and are winless at 0-3, so it's not all on Williams. In the loss to New England, he had five receptions for 65 yards, his best game thus far.

He joins fellow receiver Vincent Jackson on the questionable list. Jackson also suffered his injury against New England, but his rib injury seemed much more serious. It seems likely that Williams could more accurately be described as probable, though it's worth noting that he officially did not participate in practice on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Williams is not one of the top fantasy receivers, but he has potential and is owned in a high percentage of leagues. It sounds very likely that he plays on Sunday, and should be involved plenty in the offense, given Jackson's more serious injury. On top of that, Williams could get a boost from a change at the quarterback position, as the Buccaneers will start rookie third-round pick Mike Glennon in place of Josh Freeman.
