Fantasy Outlook 2010

The Bucs spent a lot, and we mean a lot, of time with this guy before they chose him in the 4th round of the 2010 NFL Draft.  They came away with the impression that he can contribute to the organization right away, or else they wouldn’t have drafted him after already drafting a receiver (Arrelious Benn) in the 2nd round.  They will most likely start him alongside Benn, using him as a guy who can stretch the field.  However, he can only do as much as his quarterback allows him to do, and last year, Freeman was one of the most inaccurate downfield passers in the league.  When all’s said and done, Williams probably will be a mediocre WR3 guy this year unless Freeman really matures.

Williams on the field

When Williams has actually played (for information on why that hasn’t usually been the case see below), he is a big threat.  The 6’2”, 204-pound receiver scored a touchdown in 10 of 12 games he played in during the 2007 season despite the fact that his team only won two of those games.  In the seven games which he has played in 2009, he registered an 11-catch 209-yard performance and 13-catch 186-yard game and in both games he scored two touchdowns.  He has big play written all over him and he succeeds in almost every facet of the game…if only that were the case off the field.

The Saga of Williams

The sad part about Mike Williams is that he is known for his headline making off the field than on it, and unlike in Tim Tebow’s case, that’s not a good thing.  Williams spent four years at Syracuse University- whose football team has been in irrelevance since the Donovan McNabb era- yet only played one full season, in 2007.  He was suspended for the entire 2008 season for cheating on a test and that’s not even the most interesting tidbit of his stint as an Orange.  The next season, he was off to a great start, but then one night was involved in an auto accident (alcohol wasn’t involved) after coming home from a casino past curfew with a few teammates.

Now, Williams had already violated one team rule earlier in the season, to go along with his cheating scandal the year before.  Coach Doug Marrone tried to call Williams the next day, but his cell phone was lost in the accident and he wasn’t staying in his room because his roommate had the swine flu.  So when Marrone couldn’t get a hold of Williams, he assumed he quit and told the whole world that fact the next day (this after holding a vote with the entire team asking them if they wanted him to stay- the majority said yes).  Williams in fact had no quit and quickly met with the AD and Marrone, but Marrone continued in his stubborn ways and wouldn’t let Williams back on the team.

In a nutshell, that is probably why you have heard very little about Williams on the field, because there hasn’t been much to report on.

Marrone Irritated

Mike Williams request for trade from Buffalo has head coach Doug Marrone irritated given team-first philosophy. "Yeah, I'm not gonna lie," he says.

Sammy Watkins stated about the situation:"He’s the one to keep us together, movies, out to eat, anything... he’s there. Picking us up during practice, meetings. Anything that has to do with leading, he’s our leader and I think it would hurt all of us," Watkins said. "I won’t even lie to you, it would hurt everybody that’s in our room."

Fred Jackson added about the situation: "It's just part of the game. We can't focus on that. It's part of the game, it's part of the business. What we got to do is continue to come in here and do our jobs and focus on what it is that us, as individuals, need to do," running back Fred Jackson said.

Pyro's take: Well it looks like some will miss him others not so much, if indeed he is traded. Williams has four years left on a six-year, $40.25 million deal that the Bills are wishing they hadn't dealt for in the offseason.

Williams wants to prove Bucs made a mistake

Saying he wants to prove the Bucs made a mistake by trading him to the Buffalo Bills, receiver Mike Williams admitted he has to ‘grow up a little bit more.’’

Despite that acknowledgement at his introductory press conference with the Bills Monday, Williams insisted that he was guilty mostly of having a big heart and said two stories about his off-field problems weren’t factual. He refused to specify but claimed some of the charges against him were unfounded.

The spate of trouble surrounding Williams prompted the Bucs to trade their No. 2 receiver to the Bills Friday for a sixth-round pick in the NFL draft next month.

“I’m going to go out and prove they made a mistake and this is a great decision for the Buffalo Bills,’’ Williams said.

Pyro's take: Lovie Smith has quickly put his stamp on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers by sending their second best receiver packing. Instead of trying to work with Williams, Smith figured it was better to send him to Buffalo for a sixth round draft pick.

This is a nice score for the Bills, as it cost them nothing for a player with a chip on his shoulder. Williams will definitely help E.J. Manuel in his second season. As for the Bucs, I am not sure what they are going to look like on offense, but it will most likely look bad.

Bills trade for Buc's Williams

The Buffalo Bills have worked out a trade with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for wide receiver Mike Williams, it was announced Friday.

The Bills will send a sixth-round pick in next month's draft to Tampa Bay in exchange for the four-year veteran, pending a physical.

"Mike Williams is a competitive, tough wide receiver who has the size and athleticism to add competition to our receiver position group," Bills coach Doug Marrone said in a release.

Pyro's take: Williams fantasy prospects have took a dive since a good year in 2012. Williams burst unto the scene as a rookie in 2010 posting double digit touchdowns and also scored 9 in 2012. Williams will now be finding a new home after a tumultuous offseason which ultimately led to his trade out of Tampa.

Depending on how his leg heals up from his stab wound, Williams could be a good buy low option for the Bills at just the price of a sixth round pick. The Bills now have what seems like a well balanced receiving corps with the 6'2" Stevie Johnson and 6'2" Mike Williams on the outside, the polished Robert Woods in one slot, and the speedster Marquise Goodwin as a situational deep threat.

Williams' fantasy prospects for next season are a bit murkier as of now with an inconsistent quarterback at the helm, and numerous other weapons around him. Keep an eye out to see if the Bills make any other moves with their wide receiving corps to see if anyone will be worth owning for your starting lineup.

Williams stabbed by his brother

Troubled Tampa Bay Buccaneers receiver Mike Williams had another 911 call to yet another lavish home he is renting Sunday evening. This time, he was the one who needed help.

Williams, 26, was hospitalized briefly after witnesses said his brother stabbed him in the thigh while roughhousing, according to the Hillsborough Sheriff's Office.

He was transported to St. Joseph's Hospital and released after what was described as a relatively minor laceration.

Before Sunday's stabbing, Williams' future with the Bucs was in question, eight months after he signed a six-year, $40 million extension.

"There's a pattern here and it's disturbing," Lovie Smith said at the NFL combine in Indianapolis last month. "No one is bigger than this football team. He has to understand that.

"Have I been disappointed in Mike Williams? Of course," said Smith, who acknowledged that the team had worked to help resolve the situation. "There's a standard. We're just not going to put up with it, no matter who it is. You have to be good on the field and off the field. Simple as that. And if you're not doing what you need to do, one or the other, you have problems and that's where Mike has to take care of a few things."

Pyro's take: HA HA HA HA HA HA HA

Mike Williams questionable for Sunday

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Williams has a hamstring injury that limited him in practice on Friday and makes him questionable for Sunday's Week 4 clash against the Arizona Cardinals.

NFL.com's Gregg Rosenthal reported on the matter, noting that fellow Bucs wideout Vincent Jackson is also questionable

Pyro's take: Both Williams and Vincent Jackson have not been able to practice all week with their new rookie starting quarterback. It would appear that we will not know the fate of these wide receivers until Sunday morning. If only one of them is able to play, you can bet he will see a hefty amount of targets from Mike Glennon.
