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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
