According to a team source, Dolphins WR Preston Williams, who is recovering from a torn ACL he suffered in November last year, is on track to return in time for the regular season opener against New England. (Adam Beasley on Twitter)
Williams tore his ACL on a punt return in week 9 last season against the Jets. The undrafted receiver out of Colorado State was having an impressive rookie campaign in eight games prior to the injury, hauling in 32 catches for 428 yards and three touchdowns. He’ll come into the 2020 season as a starter on the outside opposite DaVante Parker, with Albert Wilson likely operating from the slot. Whether it’s veteran QB Ryan Fitzpatrick or rookie QB Tua Tagovailoa throwing the football for the Dolphins, look for Williams to take a step up in his second year in the NFL. He’s currently ranked #51 in FantasyPros expert consensus rankings, but could outperform that ranking if he can remain healthy and become a reliable #2 WR for what should be a much improved Miami team.
