S - NO - OUT
Week 17 Outlook
Marcus Williams finished Sunday’s 34-17 win over the Buccaneers with three solo tackles and a pick-six.
Williams now has four interceptions, one touchdown, 35 total tackles, and one forced fumble through Week 11. He should be added to rosters because in Week 12 the Saints get Kyle Allen, someone that just tossed four picks in his last game on Sunday.
Marcus Williams finished Sunday’s loss to the Falcons with seven total tackles and a interception.
Williams has three interceptions, 32 total tackles, and one forced fumble through Week 10. He can be kept on waivers in most leagues but is worth rostering in Week 11 as the Saints battle the Buccaneers.
Marcus Williams ends Monday’s win over the Texans with two tackles and an interception.
The second-year safety had four interceptions during his rookie campaign in 2018. Williams is off to a great start and is worth keeping on IDP radars this season, especially in dynasty formats.
In the win Week 12 on Thanksgiving night there were five New Orleans Saints defenders who recorded a forced fumble. The group included free safety Marcus Williams, middle linebacker Demario Davis, cornerback P.J. Williams, cornerback Marshon Lattimore, and weakside linebacker Alex Anzalone.
The defensive effort on the entire unit was felt for New Orleans IDP owners. The unit has hit its stride just in time for most fantasy football leagues starting their playoffs soon. Any one of these players has their own upside for the rest of the season in any contest. The Dallas Cowboys are slated next and they have to be focusing on the turnovers that the New Orleans unit has managed to produce and the momentum they'll be facing. IDP owners have to ride the wave and hope they can keep the pace going.
New Orleans free safety Marcus Williams may have only recorded a secondary leading four combined tackles. But he did have an interception with a 78-yard return in the win Sunday over the Bengals. Also credited for a pass defended he enjoyed a productive day.
Williams hasn't been an upper tier play overall for IDP owners this season as expected that he would be. But for anyone taking advantage of this matchup this past Sunday and likely looking for a bye-week play, he showed his chops and rewarded those that had him slotted in their lineups. As for the rest of the season, IDP owners may want to keep him as a depth player or a possible DB2 type play pending the matchups.
