P.J. Williams arrested for drunk driving

Saints cornerback P.J. Williams was arrested in New Orleans early Wednesday morning for drunk driving. Williams was clocked driving at 80 miles per hour in a 50-mph zone. He also used a traffic lane improperly and failed to signal a turn, New Orleans police said, via the New Orleans Advocate. He was booked into the jail on counts of drunken and careless driving. He was released after about three hours.

Fantasy Impact

It’s not Williams’ first incident behind the wheel. In 2014, then a starter at Florida State, he fled the scene of an accident while driving with a suspended license. During the pre-draft process in 2015, he was arrested for driving under the influence in Tallahassee. The charges were later dropped even though Williams admitted he “had a few drinks.” The 25-year-old could be facing league discipline after this latest incident. He is set to be a free agent in March.

Fantasy Impact

Cornerback P.J. Williams officially started six of the possible sixteen contests last season, according to He was used as the third cornerback in games and played a total of 633 snaps overall on the year, coming in third among those designated cornerbacks. Williams did earn his way onto the list as an unheralded player when the New Orlean Saints endure injuries in the secondary. He will likely have the same role in 2018 as the third cornerback, but IDP owners may want to find other options unless the secondary again is hit with injuries and he sees an extended role.
