DALTON DEL DON: Well, everyone's excited to see what Justin Herbert has in store for year number two. And Austin Ekeler is getting drafted aggressively. Let's look for a sleeper in LA, and that's Mike Williams.

The former top 10 pick is something of a health risk. He puts his body in harm's way going up for jump balls. But he had 10 touchdowns on just 66 targets as a sophomore. And the off-season saw the Chargers lose Hunter Henry only to replace him with 34-year-old Jared Cook.

Keenan Allen was once considered one of the more injury-prone wideouts in football. And new offensive coordinator Joel Lombardi envisions using Williams like he did Mike Thomas in New Orleans in that exposition. Williams actually had more air yards than AJ Brown, [INAUDIBLE] Johnson, and Amari Cooper last season.

And he has a young superstar now throwing to him at quarterback. There's top 20 fantasy wideout upside here. And Williams' ADP is nowhere close to that.
