Chargers WR Mike Williams puts Cowboys defense on blast ahead of Week 2 showdown
After a fantastic performance in the Los Angeles Chargers’ 20-16 win on the road over the Washington Football Team, Bolts wide receiver Mike Williams is feeling confident over his chances of torching the Dallas Cowboys’ pass defense in Week 2.
Williams spoke about what he thinks of the Cowboys’ stop unit and if you are a fantasy football owner of the former Clemson Tigers wideout, this could make you feel giddy.

“Tampa Bay receivers looked like they was having some fun out there,” said Williams.
There’s a lot to like for Williams about the prospect of the Chargers’ passing attack opposite Dallas’ D. In Week 1, the Cowboys let Tom Brady pass for 379 yards and four touchdowns on 32-of-50 completions. The Cowboys were able to pick off Brady twice, but they were not able to take him down to the ground all game long.
Aging stars Antonio Brown and Rob Gronkowski had a field day earning a ton of yards, as they repeatedly embarrassed the Cowboys’ secondary. Brown finished the game with 121 receiving yards and a touchdown in five catches, while Gronk ended up with 90 receiving yards and two touchdowns on eight receptions and eight targets. That’s not to mention Chris Godwin, who went off for 105 receiving yards and a touchdown on nine touches.
As for Williams, he had 82 receiving yards and a TD on eight catches against Washington.
Williams can expect the Cowboys to hear about this, so he should expect a more intense focus on him from Dallas. Then again, the Cowboys also have to worry about Keenan Allen.
