WR - MIA
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.
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.
The Miami Dolphins have announced that wide receiver Preston Williams will miss the remainder of the season after suffering an injury Week 9 against the Jets.
Williams had to be carted off following the injury late in the game against the Jets. He had really come on of late and was turning into a fantasy-relevant player. He's someone to keep in mind for dynasty leagues, but his 2019 season is now over. His loss is likely DeVante Parker's gain, as long as he Ryan Fitzpatrick throwing him the ball.
Miami Dolphins star rookie receiver Preston Williams will undergo an MRI on his right knee suffering an injury in Week 9 against the New York Jets.
Preston Williams was in the midst of his long-awaited breakout game before falling victim to the injury on a punt return. His loss would be a big blow to an otherwise talent deficient Miami Dolphins wide receiver corps. Any extended absence would also be a big blow to Ryan Fitzpatrick superflex owners. This is a situation to monitor closely.
Preston Williams caught five of his nine targets for 72 yards and two touchdowns in the Dolphins' Week 9 win over the Jets.
Williams has put on a show a few times this season, and made the most of his opportunities in a nice matchup. It's likely to be tougher sledding next week against the Colts, but Williams is on the right side of the Dolphins' WR1 battle, so he can be started with the expectation of a nice target share.
Preston Williams caught four of his seven targets for 42 yards in the Dolphins' Week 8 loss to the Steelers.
Williams trailed DeVante Parker by one target in this game, though is normally the team's WR1. As little value as that role has, it still makes him startable if needed. Next week's matchup with the Jets should be a fine spot for Williams.
