Description: Bills wide receiver Mike Williams will not play Sunday.
Insight: Robert Woods will continue to start opposite Sammy Watkins. Williams had just one catch for eight yards last week and fantasy owners can ignore him.
 
Cold9/16/2014 3:32:00 PM
Description: Bills wide receiver Mike Williams caught one ball for three yards in Week 2.
Insight: Robert Woods has started opposite Sammy Watkins the first two weekends, but neither receiver is seeing enough action to get fantasy owners excited.
 
8/23/2014 8:58:00 PM
Description: Bills wide receiver Mike Williams made three catches for 46 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's preseason game against his former team, the Buccaneers.
Insight: Williams caught three out of four passes thrown in his direction, including a 14-yard touchdown. He will play opposite Sammy Watkins to start the season and has the potential to be a valuable WR plug-in during the bye weeks.
 
4/4/2014 12:38:00 PM
Description: The Buccaneers have traded wideout Mike Williams to Buffalo for a sixth-round pick.
Insight: Williams will join a receiving corps that features Stevie Johnson, Robert Woods, T.J. Graham and Marquise Goodwin. The trade reunites Williams with his college coach, Doug Marrone.

Description: Buccaneers wideout Mike Williams was released from the hospital late Sunday night. SOURCE: Tampa Tribune
Insight: He was allegedly stabbed by his brother and the police are looking into the incident. As talented as Williams is, he's been nothing but trouble off the field and this strange incident could be the last straw for the Bucs. Don't be surprised if Tampa Bay decides to release the troubled wide receiver.

Insight: This is a developing story and we'll have more information as soon as it's available. Right now, all we know is that Williams is in the hospital being treated for a thigh wound. Stay tuned.
 
10/28/2013 11:46:00 AM
Description: Buccaneers wideout Mike Williams has been placed on the injured reserve with a torn hamstring.
Insight: Williams' season is now over. He'll finish with 22 catches for 216 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Tiquan Underwood should be the primary beneficiary.
 
10/25/2013 7:29:00 PM
Description: According to Ira Kaufman of the Tampa Tribune, Buccaneers wideout Mike Williams says he has a torn hamstring.
Insight: The Tampa Bay Times reported earlier Friday that the team was "concerned" about the injury and whether he would be able to continue playing. It could be season-ending for Williams, which would leave receivers Tiquan Underwood and Chris Owusu and tight end Tim Wright as the team's secondary receiving options behind Vincent Jackson. None of those players need to be added in fantasy leagues.
 
10/25/2013 5:19:00 PM
Description: According to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times, the Buccaneers are "concerned" about Mike Williams' hamstring injury.
Insight: Per Stroud, the team doesn't know if Williams will be able to continue playing. Williams has been playing on the injury for several weeks and has just 52 yards on seven catches over the last two games after missing Week 6. Tiquan Underwood, Chris Owusu and Tim Wright would be in line for an expanded role in Williams' absence, but none of them need to be added in fantasy leagues.
 
10/24/2013 7:19:00 PM
Description: Bucs wideout Mike Williams is in the lineup Thursday against the Panthers.
Insight: Williams was questionable with a hamstring injury. So far, he's been a disappointment with just 19 catches and 196 receiving yards in five games.
 
10/23/2013 6:12:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers receiver Mike Williams (hamstring) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Panthers.
Insight: Williams played Sunday against the Falcons and had four catches for 32 yards after missing Week 6, but the short week isn't doing him any favors. QB Mike Glennon has targeted Vincent Jackson 47 times in three games as the starter, so Williams can be benched even if he plays Thursday.
 
10/18/2013 1:37:00 AM
Description: Tampa Bay receiver Mike Williams (hamstring) practiced Friday and is expected to play Sunday against Atlanta.
Insight: Williams owners missed out on a big opportunity against the Eagles last week, but should be a low end WR3 this week.
 
10/13/2013 11:42:00 AM
Description: Tampa Bay receiver Mike Williams (hamstring) missed practice Friday and is inactive for Sunday's matchup with Philadelphia.
Insight: Williams owners were salivating about getting him on the field against a porous Eagles defense, but that won't happen. Vincent Jackson should see a huge number of targets.
 
10/11/2013 1:56:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay receiver Mike Williams (hamstring) missed another day of practice, according to beat reporter Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times.
Insight: Williams owners are salivating about getting him on the field against a porous Eagles defense. We still expect him to play, but its worth checking back before kickoff to verify that he's in the lineup.
 
9/29/2013 11:46:00 AM
Description: Tampa Bay receiver Mike Williams (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.
Insight: Both Williams and Vincent Jackson (rib) were questionable but will play, so rookie QB Mike Glennon will have all his weapons available in his first NFL start. Williams is a WR3.
 
9/26/2013 2:29:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay receiver Mike Williams (hamstring) missed a second straight practice Thursday, according to PewterReport.com.
Insight: Both Williams and Vincent Jackson (rib) are questionable for Week 4 against the Cardinals. If both receivers miss the game, Arizona's defense will be a viable fantasy option with rookie Mike Glennon making his first NFL start.
 
9/8/2013 6:18:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay receiver Mike Williams had 52 yards and a touchdown on four catches Sunday against the Jets.
Insight: It's a familiar stat line for fantasy owners. Williams averaged 62.3 yards and 3.9 catches per game last season while hauling in nine touchdowns.
 
8/2/2013 9:48:00 PM
Description: Bucs receiver Mike Williams strained his hamstring in practice on Friday. SOURCE: Tampa Bay Times
Insight: Head coach Greg Schiano dismissed the injury as minor and it's possible Williams could return to practice later this weekend.
 
7/24/2013 6:34:00 PM
Description: The Buccaneers have signed star wideout Mike Williams to a six-year, $40.25 million contract extension.
Insight: Williams reeled in nine touchdown grabs last season and finished four yards shy of 1,000 yards. In three seasons, he's never missed a game. We're expecting a breakout year for Williams in 2013.
 
12/30/2012 7:08:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay wideout Mike Williams came within four yards of his first 1,000 yard receiving season.
Insight: He needed 69 yards on Sunday and only came up with 65. If Williams had reached the mark, he and Vincent Jackson would have become the first teammates in Buccaneers history to both go for 1,000 yards in the same season.
