As seen above, Williams had 19 receptions for 20 yards or more giving him the sixth best ranking in the league.
This comes after only having two receptions his rookie season.
Nonetheless, he turned in an incredible sophomore campaign hauling in 69 receptions for 1,059 yards and seven touchdowns along with the explosive plays.
It is great to see the improvement of talent surrounding Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers.
The team is adding two guards to protect him and now have a great rookie wideout in Mike Williams, receiver Keenan Allen returning from injury and the young standout, Tyrell Williams.
It should be exciting to see what that trio of receivers will be able to do on the field this season. Without a doubt, the Chargers will have an elite offense of their own.
