2018 Fantasy Outlook
Someone besides Allen Hurns has to fill the 219-target void from the departures of Jason Witten and Dez Bryant, and at press time Williams is the leading candidate. Aside from 2017 when the Dallas passing game collapsed, Williams has been an efficient per-play receiver and a capable deep threat. At 6-2, 210, he has good size, and he's typically played a bit faster than his 4.52 combine speed. The Cowboys will still be a run-first team, but Dak Prescott is a capable quarterback, and Williams should see his share of targets, though third-round pick Michael Gallup could also push for a role. Williams had surgery on a broken foot this offseason and missed OTAs, but he returned to practice during the second week of training camp, albeit while still dealing with some pain. Perhaps even more concerning, Williams was arrested for public intoxication and leaving the scene of an accident after he allegedly crashed his car into a light pole. The legal situation was resolved quickly, but he could still face discipline from the league. Read Past Outlooks

Williams (foot) has been cut loose by the Cowboys, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
ANALYSIS
Williams made it through two seasons of a four-year, $17 million contract, receiving a $5 million signing bonus and $4.5 million in guaranteed base salaries, per overthecap.com. The Cowboys didn't get much of a return, with Williams posting a 53-568-0 receiving line on 78 targets (7.3 YPT) in 2017, then playing just three games in 2018 while dealing with a suspension and foot injury. The 29-year-old should regain his health at some point this offseason, but his days as an NFL starter may be numbered. The Cowboys will move forward with Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup locked in as the starting wide receivers outside.

2013
Williams had his least productive season in 2016 but still re-signed with the Cowboys on an affordable four-year deal rather than try his luck elsewhere. Primarily a downfield threat, he didn't see as many targets with Dak Prescott under center as he was used to from Tony Romo, as the rookie emphasized ball control and moving the chains instead of stretching the field. Although an offseason together could help Williams' output rebound, he'll remain a secondary option in an offense built around Ezekiel Elliott and Dez Bryant.
Williams had a surprisingly good year given his team's level of quarterback play, averaging 9.0 YPT and 16.2 YPC. The efficient performance was nothing new for him, but usually his strong per-play numbers come courtesy of a healthy Tony Romo, and Dez Bryant occupying opposing safeties. That said, Williams saw only 93 targets, just 11 of which were in the red zone, and scored onlythree times on an offense that didn't move the ball. At 6-2, 208, with 4.48 speed, Williams is a solid complementary target, but Bryant has the athleticism and frame to dominate the red-zone looks. That relegates Williams to a low-upside No. 2, especially given the team's run-heavy tendencies and use of veteran tight end Jason Witten. Romo's return should give the offense a boost, however, so expect a few more scores from Williams this year.
After an explosive rookie year, Williams again delivered on a per-play basis (16.8 YPC, 9.6 YPT) in Year 2, but saw nine fewer targets. At 6-2, 208, and running a 4.48 40, Williams has good size and decent speed, and playing opposite Dez Bryant affords him plenty of single coverage downfield. But between Bryant, tight end Jason Witten and the team's all-world running game, the volume simply wasn't there. This year, with DeMarco Murray and his 392 carries out of the picture, the Cowboys could wind up throwing the ball more; Murray's replacements are last year's backups, Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar, Cardinal-reject Ryan Williams and the past-his-prime Darren McFadden. Even so, much of Murray's success last year was due to the team's first-rate offensive line, and the team went 12-4 and won a playoff game with a run-first philosophy, so it's unlikely big changes are in the offing. Slot man Cole Beasley also signed a modest four-year deal this offseason, and he'll see at least 50-odd targets too.
Williams was the Cowboys’ big-play receiver as a rookie, averaging 16.7 YPC and 9.9 YPT (7th among the league’s 69 70-target WR). At 6-2, 200 and running a 4.52 40, Williams has good speed for his height and the skills to make plays once the ball’s in the air. With Miles Austin gone, Williams should start opposite Dez Bryant as the team’s unquestioned No. 2 receiver. While Williams saw a healthy 12 red-zone looks on only 74 targets, Bryant led the NFL with 16 targets from inside the 10 and likely puts a ceiling on Williams’ end zone opportunities. The Cowboys don’t have much depth at the position beyond Williams, however, so he’s likely to see a more targets overall, many of which will be in single coverage.
With Kevin Ogletree in Tampa, and neither Miles Austin nor Dez Bryant known for his durability, the Cowboys drafted Williams in the third round this spring. At 6-2, 201 and with good straight ahead speed, Williams projects as a field-stretcher with decent size. He'll need to work on his ball skills, however, and he’s never going to be more than the fourth option in the team's passing game, should Austin, Bryant and Jason Witten stay healthy. But there's upside here, especially long term.
