Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2015
Williams had his first season with the 49ers in 2017 and looked like a solid cornerback, making 54 tackles, one sack, five pass breakups and one interception. His opportunities may take a hit this season, however, as the Niners picked up Richard Sherman and Jimmie Ward is healthy. Fantasy owners shouldn't touch Williams, but they should be quick on the trigger of there are injuries ahead of him.
Williams is highly unlikely to beat out Joe Haden or Tramon Williams for a starting cornerback role, but should retain his current job as the extra defensive back in nickel packages. He was more impressive than the highly-touted rookie Justin Gilbert in 2014, and will look to carry that momentum into the upcoming season.
