2019 Fantasy Outlook
An underwhelming pro day and a 2017 off-field incident led to Williams being passed on in the 2018 NFL Draft despite having compiled a 96-1345-14 receiving line during his sole season at CSU. The Dolphins' wideout room remains nebulous at best behind DeVante Parker, Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson, giving Williams a chance to make the 53-man roster. While he could require time to develop at the NFL level, Williams has made a strong push for snaps throughout training camp and appears on track to surpass the likes of Brice Butler, Jakeem Grant and Isaiah Ford on the depth chart.

Leads pass catchers in loss
WRMiami Dolphins
October 20, 2019
Williams secured six of eight targets for 82 yards and returned one punt for 19 yards in the Dolphins' 31-21 loss to the Bills on Sunday. He also lost a fumble.
ANALYSIS
Williams led the Dolphins in receptions and receiving yardage while checking in second in targets to DeVante Parker. The rookie's one miscue was costly, however, as he gave up the ball at Miami's 28-yard line with the Bills clinging to a 17-14 lead. The loose ball was recovered by Buffalo's Jerry Hughes and returned to the Dolphins' 11-yard line, and Cole Beasley crossed the goal line three plays later on a three-yard scoring grab. On the brighter side, both Williams' reception and receiving yardage tallies were career highs, and he'll look to build on those numbers against the Steelers in a Week 8 Monday night showdown.
