2020 Fantasy Outlook
Williams got off to a strong start in his first eight games in the league with numbers that prorate to 64 catches for 856 yards and six TDs over 16 games. Unfortunately, he tore his ACL in Week 9, ending his rookie campaign. At 6-5, 218, and running a 4.53 40 at his pro day last spring, Williams has the build, route-running skills, catch radius and athleticism to be the Dolphins' No. 1 receiver. Unfortunately, while he was hurt, 2015 first-round pick DeVante Parker went crazy in the season's second half and firmly established himself as the top dog. Williams expects to be healthy for the start of the year, but he might not return to 100 percent strength until midseason and likely will have to battle for targets behind Parker. Read Past Outlooks

Williams (foot) isn't participating in Wednesday's practice, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
ANALYSIS
Dolphins head coach Brian Flores has said that Williams isn't shut down for the season, but at this point, the second-year wideout doesn't seem to have a realistic shot to play Week 17 against the Bills. Williams could have a better shot at returning to the field in the postseason, should the Dolphins earn a playoff berth. Through eight games before landing on injured reserve, Williams secured 18 of 35 targets for 288 yards and four touchdowns.

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.
