2. Jameson Williams catches two touchdowns
Williams’ lack of playing time and production in his first four NFL games has started to become a bit of a thing, so Dan Campbell had to make an attempt to appease those masses earlier this week by suggesting the Lions’ rookie receiver will see more action.
Williams will not be fully unleashed until next season, which has always been the reality as he worked his way back from a torn ACL that happened almost exactly a year ago now. But he could certainly be used a little more in some situations, and if Jared Goff had made a better throw against the New York Jets back in Week 15 he’d have two touchdowns on as many career catches right now.
The Lions wide receivers will find talent mismatches all over the field on Sunday, as the Bears will be down some key pieces of their secondary.
Even if Williams only goes up to something like 15 snaps against Chicago, those snaps should be keenly focused on critical down/distances and red zone for maximum potential impact whether he touches the ball or not.
Via a couple deep shots or a couple chances from closer in, or maybe one of both, Williams getting the requisite opportunities and scoring twice this week would be a nice launch point looking toward 2023.
