Injury Knee - ACL
2019 Fantasy Outlook
An underwhelming pro day and a 2017 off-field incident led to Williams being passed on in the 2018 NFL Draft despite having compiled a 96-1345-14 receiving line during his sole season at CSU. The Dolphins' wideout room remains nebulous at best behind DeVante Parker, Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson, giving Williams a chance to make the 53-man roster. While he could require time to develop at the NFL level, Williams has made a strong push for snaps throughout training camp and appears on track to surpass the likes of Brice Butler, Jakeem Grant and Isaiah Ford on the depth chart.

Knee - ACL
January 29, 2020
Williams (knee) doesn't yet have a timeline to return to the field, but he expects to play at some point in 2020, The Palm Beach Post reports.
ANALYSIS
Williams suffered an ACL tear Nov. 3, giving him 10 months to recover from surgery and complete his rehab program before Week 1 of 2020. It could be a close call, but he'll at least have youth on his side as he prepares for his age-23 season. The Colorado State product was an instant contributor as an undrafted rookie, with his stats from eight games prorating to a 64-856-5 receiving line on 120 targets over a 16-game campaign. Williams led the Dolphins in receiving yards at the time of his knee injury, which then paved the way for DeVante Parker to compile a league-high 802 yards over the final eight weeks of the season. Parker should enter 2020 as the team's No. 1 receiver, but it's worth remembering that he and Williams were essentially equals before the rookie tore his ACL.
