RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Williams is coming off of a career 2015 campaign, but will reprise his role as the primary backup to Lawrence Timmons and Ryan Shazier.

2015

2014 was another solid season for Williams, but he remains behind Lawrence Timmons and Ryan Shazier on the depth chart, limiting his fantasy value.

2014

Williams had a solid rookie season, but the addition of first-round pick Ryan Shazier will likely relegate his role to that of a reserve in 2014.

2013

Pittsburgh's 2013 sixth round draft pick looks to land a spot on the 53-man roster behind Lawrence Timmons and Larry Foote.
