The Athletic's Daniel Popper suggests that Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams (knee) could be the odd man out among fellow receiver Keenan Allen and pass-rushers Joey Bosa and Khalil Mack this offseason. Williams and the other three players have huge salary cap hits this year after they were all restructured last offseason. Together, they are projected to account for close to 60% of the team's cap in 2024, according to Over the Cap. It's highly unlikely all four players will be on the roster this fall. Williams is coming off a torn ACL and has the second-highest receiver cap hit in the league at $32.46 million (Allen has the highest). If Williams is cut, the Chargers would save $20 million. And if Williams is gone, former first-rounder Quentin Johnston should have a much bigger role in his sophomore season after he was a big disappointment his rookie year.

Tennessee Titans wide receiver Treylon Burks has hauled in just 16 of his 30 targets for 221 yards and no touchdowns in 10 games this season. He has continued to disappoint throughout his sophomore season, keeping him firmly off the fantasy radar against the Jacksonville Jaguars -- even in deep leagues. The Titans are in rebuild mode, so look for the team to add target competition behind DeAndre Hopkins next season. Burks has a bleak future outlook, but since he was a former first-round pick, he'll have at least a minuscule amount of fantasy intrigue next year.
