Chad Williams
24-Year-Old Wide ReceiverWR
2018 Fantasy Outlook
The Cardinals probably were hoping for more out of Williams after tabbing him in the third round of last year's draft, but he kicked off his initial training camp with less-than-ideal conditioning and couldn't recover. His performance was even more disappointing because the situation was ripe for the picking. After premier pass-catching back David Johnson was knocked out for the season Week 1, the four leading receivers behind Larry Fitzgerald's 109 catches and six touchdowns ranged from 29-33 grabs and 2-4 TDs. Williams was not one of them, finishing with a dismal line of 3-31-0 on seven targets in six appearances, all coinciding with DNPs from John Brown. Brown and Jaron Brown left via free agency, but Williams must vie with J.J. Nelson, 2018 second-round pick Christian Kirk and Brice Butler for positioning on the depth chart. Read Past Outlooks

Notches 17 catches in 10 games

January 2, 2019
Williams compiled 17 catches (on 46 targets) for 171 yards and one touchdown in 10 games during the 2018 campaign. He also added one carry for nine yards.
ANALYSIS
Since he was plucked by the Cardinals in the third round of the 2017 draft, Williams hasn't exactly had an ideal quarterback situation, but a horrid career catch rate of 37.7 percent (20 receptions on 53 targets) is more indicative of his own play than the four signal-callers (Carson Palmer, Blaine Gabbert, Sam Bradford and Josh Rosen) that have directed passes his way. Overall, Williams has been held to one or fewer catches in 16 appearances with the Cardinals, leaving him on the periphery of Arizona's receiving corps. Assuming Larry Fitzgerald returns in 2019, Williams also will have to contend with rookie sensation Christian Kirk (foot), Trent Sherfield and any other wideouts added in the offseason.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
With the post-Larry Fitzgerald era in mind, the Cardinals selected a wide receiver in the middle rounds for the third time in four years, tabbing Williams in the third round of April's draft. Williams joins a receiving corps with a number of burners, namely John Brown and J.J. Nelson, both of whom are expected to block the rookie from regular reps off the bat. As a developmental player, Williams may only strike on occasion this season as head coach Bruce Arians attempts to keep opposing defenses honest.
