2016

2014

Williams started playing more toward the end of last season and will likely start on the interior of the defensive line again. However, he isn't a big tackle-accumulator and doesn't get to the quarterback that much, which leaves him as a fairly limited fantasy IDP.

2013

First round draft pick will compete with Kevin Vickerson for a starting defensive tackle. However, he's got limited fantasy upside due to his low tackle-accumulating position.
