The Dallas Cowboys continue to heap praise on WR Terrance Williams, who has reportedly continued to build a strong rapport with QB Tony Romo. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: Williams is certainly no Bryant, but last year he proved to be a home run threat, scoring eight TDs on only 37 receptions last season. This made him fantasy-relevant, but owners would like to see more targets and consistency from Williams in 2015, especially in PPR leagues.

He should be fine but he got tangled up with rookie Byron Jones and landed awkwardly on his elbow. X-Rays came back negative and coach Derek Dooley didn't seem too concerned, saying "Hopefully he is ok and we'll see him in five weeks." (Source: Fort Worth Star-Telegram)

Fantasy Impact: With Dez Bryant holding out, Williams has been Tony Romo's go-to guy during OTAs. Dez came back today, maybe he didn't want Williams getting too comfortable in the lead role. Williams looks to have a solid year.

Terrance Williams finishes the 2014 season in a loss to the Packers in the NFC Divisional Round by chipping in with a 38 yard touchdown catch.

Fantasy Impact: Williams finished the season with 11 touchdown catches, including three in the playoffs, and made some huge progress this season. Williams now has 15 touchdown catches over his first two seasons, making him the leader in touchdown receptions from any player drafted in 2013. He also had an 18.3 yard per catch average between the regular season and the playoffs, good for second in the NFL behind DeSean Jackson's 20.3. Williams' inconsistency makes him a volitile player but his breakway speed and good route running could make him a WR2 for next season. He would benefit from Dez Bryant returning in free agency, so Bryant's decision needs to be monitored.

Terrance Williams needs to focus on consistent play for the Cowboys to succeed against the Packers. (Source: Dallas-Forth Worth Star-Telegram)

Fantasy Impact: Terrance Williams has been up and down all year and the Packers defense could give him opportunities. He had a huge game against the Lions, with two touchdown catches, his third game this season with multiple touchdown catches. The Packers have had trouble guarding slot receivers and Williams' explosiveness could yield another 15+ point performance. On the other hand, Williams has had seven games where he scored single digit points and was a non-factor. The risk may be worth the reward with Williams, but the risk needs to be assessed before picking Williams.

Fantasy Impact: Williams has been up and down all season, mainly stemming from the impact of long catches. From Week 7 to Week 15, Williams caught one pass of more than 20 yards and scored one touchdown. On the other hand, he had seven receptions of 20 yards or more and five touchdowns in the first six games. Williams has had statistics more like the former than the latter in the past three games, averaging 71 yards and hauling in four touchdowns. Between the regular season and the playoffs, Williams now has 10 receiving touchdowns, but should be seen as a highly risky player, even going against a Packers secondary that ranks 23rd against fantasy WR.

Terrance Williams had two catches for 52 yards, both touchdowns, against the Colts.

Fantasy Impact: Williams had gone six weeks without any fantasy relevance and seven weeks without a touchdown, so this was a pleasant surprise for those that had faith in Williams. He has eight touchdowns on the season, ranking in the top 20 in the NFL, but his 34 receptions and 553 yards made him not worthy of a fantasy position. For those that utilized him in daily fantasy sports or took the extreme risk of playing him in a fantasy championship matchup, Williams' 17 fantasy points likely led to fantasy success.

With the Cowboys using more 3 WR sets if DeMarco Murray sits, Williams may be able to find his way in the passing game with isolation routes. (Source: Dallas Morning News)

Fantasy Impact: Williams has not had more than two catches in a game since Week 8 and has been displaced by Cole Beasley as the second option at WR; he needs to find a way to be a part of the offense in Week 16 and Murray's injury could help. If Murray is out, Tony Romo may throw in excess of 30 times, something he has only done four times this year, and that may give Williams a chance to make an impact. Williams has averaged five targets, 2.5 catches, 52.5 receiving yards and scored two touchdowns in games where Romo has thrown more than 30 times in 2014; each of these statistics are better than his seasonal averages and Williams has been very good in isolated coverage this year. He will not be worth a look for fantasy purposes but could have his best game in a couple months.

Fantasy Impact: If you haven't already, you can now safely drop Terrance Williams. In his last 4 games, Williams has 3 receptions for 56 yards. There is no way you are using him in your fantasy playoffs.

Terrance Williams (finger) was a full participant in practice all week and is listed as probable for Thursday night in Chicago. (Source: Dallascowboys.com)

Fantasy Impact: Williams has a broken bone in his left index finger, which he injured in the first quarter against the Giants. You weren't starting him healthy, now playing through a broken finger, you'd have to be very desperate to put Williams in your lineup.


By Jacob Harpel, Cowboys Correspondent, Mon, Dec 1st 7:12pm EST

Cowboys' WR Terrance Williams has seen a rapid decline in production following the second half of the season. After totaling 18 catches for 320 yards and five touchdowns in his first five games, Williams has just 12 catches for 162 yards and one touchdown in his last six games. Coach Jason Garrett commented saying "that some of that has to do with opportunity...the biggest thing for those guys is to stay ready and take advantage of the opportunities when you get them." (Source: CBS)

Fantasy Impact: As if Williams' situation could get any worse. The number of chances that he is receiving are shrinking by the game. After a pathetic showing of four catches for 38 yards last Thursday, Williams continues his streak of non-production on the field. Even though the Cowboys are facing a failing Chicago defense, fantasy owners should consider Terrance Williams a lost cause for the remainder of the season.

Terrance Williams says that quarterback Tony Romo will carve up the Eagles if given another chance, but Williams was part of the problem in the Cowboys loss on Thursday. (Source: Dallas Morning News)

Fantasy Impact: Williams has 5 receptions and 75 receiving yards in his past four games and was held to two catches and 38 yards yesterday against the Eagles. More of an issue for the Cowboys was that Williams quit on a route leading to a Tony Romo interception in the third quarter. WIlliams has been targeted eight times in the past three games, showing that the Cowboys are moving away from Williams. There is potential for Williams, though, as the Cowboys face the Bears on Thursday, who rank 30th in pass defense. If there is any reason to play Williams for the remainder of the season, this would be the opportunity.

Terrance Williams has seen his targets decrease, his confidence drop, and now has a fractured index finger to deal with. (Source: Dallas Cowboys)

Fantasy Impact: Williams has had two targets in each of the past two games and, in Week 9 against the Arizona, had seven targets, but only two catches. Williams only has 28 catches this year and, after a torrid start, has not had a double digit fantasy output since Week 5. He has a splint on his injured index finger and is questionable for the Eagles game and may not be worth a start this week. The Eagles have a questionable secondary, but the Cowboys have been spreading the ball out and have seen a rise in production from Jason Witten. Williams may be a dynamic threat on the outside, but he is more of a target when the play is designed to go to him; the Cowboys have not looked to him as frequently and Williams' numbers have fallen off.

Dallas Cowboys' WR Terrance Williams practiced on Tuesday after suffering a broken finger in Sunday night’s 31-28 win over the New York Giants, and expects to play through the injury when the Eagles come to town on Thanksgiving. (Source: NBC)

Fantasy Impact: If Terrance Williams' recent production hasn't turned fantasy owners away, then the broken finger news should. Even with Williams practicing through the injury, the unfortunate truth is that the wide receiver's usage has severely plummeted this season with just three catches in the last three games and only one grab against the Giants. Fantasy owners may hope for the best against the Eagles, but should look elsewhere for productivity.

Terrance Williams was held to just 1 catch for 18 yards in the Cowboys' week 12 win over the Giants. (Source: CBS Sports)

Fantasy Impact: Terrance Williams now has a total of 37 yards in his last 3 games. What's even worse is Williams has just 2 targets in his last 2 games. Going into the fantasy playoffs, he simply cannot be started in any leagues. Williams can be dropped if you need the roster spot, a low end WR4/5 going forward.


By Ryan Olinyk, Cowboys Correspondent, Fri, Nov 21st 3:47pm EST

Terrance Williams had 7 catches of 20 plus yards in his first 6 games, and none in his last 4. Williams was also held without a catch for the first time in 22 games. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: What saved Terrance Williams early on in the season, was the touchdowns. Catching 5 in the first 5 games. In his last 5 games, Williams has 11 total catches for 173 yards and just 1 touchdown. Williams is on pace for 43/682/9 and is a WR4 with a bit of upside, but this late in the season, you can't start him with any confidence.

Terrance Williams is shut out against the Jaguars and with only two targets, fantasy owners may be best to look elsewhere than Williams. (Source: CBS Sports)

Fantasy Impact: Terrance Williams' value has been derived from his touchdown catches and, even though Williams looked good earlier in the season, he has lost a lot of his value without scoring touchdowns. Williams has only caught for more than 70 yards in three different games and, for that reason, he has only been a double digit producer two times in his career when not scoring a touchdown. Even in both of those cases, he would have only been a double digit performer in a PPR league; he has been worthless without scoring touchdowns. With an average of less than five targets per game, sell Williams for the remainder of the season; he had a similar run in 2013 where he was a fantasy stud for a couple weeks before ending up as a fantasy liability.


By Jonathan Ebanks, Cowboys Correspondent, Mon, Nov 3rd 3:51pm EST

Cowboys' WR Terrance Williams caught two passes on seven targets for 19 yards during the team's 28-17 loss to Arizona.

Fantasy Impact: It was Williams' sixth game this season with a maximum of two receptions. He should fare better against JAX in Week 10 in London, especially since QB Tony Romo will likely be the starter next week. Williams projects as a borderline WR3/4 moving forward.

Terrance Williams continues to be the receiver that the quaterback looks to when he feels that he is out of options. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: Terrance Williams had two potentially game changing catches against Seattle in Week 6 and while he only had one catch in Week 7 it was a huge play. Tony Romo thought that the play was broken and scrambled to find Williams open in the endzone for a 18 yard touchdown that tied the game at 14 right before halftime. This marked the sixth touchdown for Williams on the season, tied for fourth in the NFL. Most importantly for fantasy purposes, only Julius Thomas and Daniel Fells have a greater touchdown to reception ratio than Williams' 31.5%; this information, as well as a nearly 18 yard per catch average, is clear evidence that quarterback Tony Romo looks to him for impact plays. A big worry for a player like Williams is that he does not catch a lot of balls, only has caught five or more passes three times in his career, and he has only caught 60% of targeted passes over his two year career. A lot of the low target rate comes from the fact that Williams runs a lot of fly and go routes that are either caught or overthrown, but a lack of consistent catches is still alarming. With Williams, you have to accept that his value comes from catching touchdown passes and if he does not catch touchdowns he will be a single digit fantasy performer. The best way to have a player like Williams in your weekly starting lineup is if you have a stable option at wide receiver to pair him with.

Terrance Williams may have only had two catches against the Seahawks but the two catches were instrumental in the Cowboys' 30-23 win. (Source: Fort Worth Star-Telegram)

Fantasy Impact: As the season has progressed, Terrance Williams' impact has been much greater. Tony Romo has looked to Williams in critical times and that was never more apparently than on a third and 20 play on Sunday. Romo needed a big play and Williams delivered with a sideline straddling 23 yard reception. Fantasy owners may not love that Williams only had 2 catches but the 70 yards that Williams had shows that Romo will look to Williams for the big play. Williams' first catch was a 47 yard catch down the right sideline after the Seahawks took a 20-17, again showing that when the Cowboys needed to gain momentium they looked to Williams. As long as Romo looks to Williams for game changing plays, starting him at WR2/Flex would still be a wise decision.

Fantasy Impact: Terrance Williams, in his second year, has found a true niche in the Cowboys offense as a deep threat. This makes him valuable to both the Cowboys and fantasy owners alike. As the Cowboys move to a more run based offense, they need a player that will stretch the defense as teams load up the box to stop DeMarco Murray and the league leading rushing attack. Williams, who averages 15.6 yards per catch, is the perfect player to fit that need for the Cowboys. Fantasy owners also like Williams because he is tied for third in the NFL with five touchdown receptions. As noted in the article, though, Williams is still raw and makes critical mistakes like the drop at the 2 yard line yesterday that would have been an easy touchdown. As he continues to develop, fantasy owners will look to add Williams as a flex/WR2 option. For those that look at WIlliams as a must add player, remember that he had a very strong five week run last year within a strong yet unspectacular rookie season.

Terrance Williams led the Cowboys with six catches, two for touchdowns, and 77 yards in a 38-17 win over the Saints. (Source: Dallas Morning News)

Fantasy Impact: Williams, who only had eight catches for 102 yards and two touchdowns in the first three weeks, was a pleasant surprise for the Cowboys in a well earned victory. Williams is very explosive, as evident by nearly 16 yards per catch in his 20 game NFL career, but he needs to be more consistant to be a solid part of the Cowboys offense. Dez Bryant and Jason Witten are the top two options for Tony Romo in the passing game and the Cowboys are trying to move moreso to their running game so Williams needs to make the most out of his opportunities like last night's. In standard leagues, Williams was in double digit fantasy points for three of four weeks in the middle of the 2013 season (Weeks 5, 7, and 8) and this is his first double digit fantasy week of the 2014 season. The six catches for Williams last night are tied for the second most he has had in his career thus far and this was his first game with multiple touchdown catches. A telling statement for Williams as a receiver, and the Cowboys as a team, is that his longest reception over four games was a 23 yard reception last night after he had 3 catches of over 50 yards last year. His average yards per catch is 12.8 this year after posting a 16.7 average last year; most of his value came from this explosiveness so Williams' owners need to adapt to the changes for the Cowboys. As the Cowboys move to a more possession based offense, Williams needs to prove that he has sure hands to maintain his fantasy value.

Williams managed 4 catches for 50 yards on 7 targets in week 1. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: Williams was limited by Romo's inability to make the right decisions. On one of Romo's three interceptions, Williams got behind the defender and could have scored a long TD with an accurate throw, but Romo opted to throw a jump ball to Bryant who happened to be in triple coverage. Williams benefits from an expected high volume passing attack, but Romo has to get it together before fantasy owners can feel comfortable with Williams in the starting lineup on a weekly basis.

The NY Times | Aug 3rd
Typically touchdown dependent, but he could see an increase in targets as Dallas leans more on the pass.
Breaking Football | Aug 2nd
Speedy received who is best in the slot but is improving. Could be in for a bigger role in 2015 but still don't love him as anything more than a WR3.
RotoBaller | Jul 31st
The loss of Murray will make the passing game more relied on, and that will benefit Williams the most.
WalterFootball | Jul 29th
I'm not in love with Williams ability, but he will be in a good situation if the Cowboys running game stalls without DeMarco Murray. He needs targets to have value and last year there weren't many to be had.
