Mike Williams gives fantasy owners a touchdown

Bob Donnan-US PRESSWIRE

Williams added 52 receiving yards in the Buccaneers' loss Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Williams hauled in a first-quarter touchdown as part of his 52 yards Sunday. He had one of the Bucs' two touchdowns in an 18-17 loss to the Jets.

Williams had four catches on eight targets. He and teammate Vincent Jackson were nearly all of the team's passing attack; the team totaled only four receiving yards outside of those two.

Fantasy impact: Williams has the chance to be one heck of a second fiddle in Tampa, as he and Jackson force defenses to split their attention. With quarterback Josh Freeman struggling, the Buccaneers need those two -- plus running back Doug Martin -- to excel if they want to bounce back from the crushing loss in the opener.

As such, it seems like head coach Greg Schiano will continue to lean on his three studs rather than experiment with new guys and backups, so it seems likely Williams will get just as much attention going forward, if not more.
