Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 7: Terrance Williams

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

The Cowboys wide receiver is stealing looks from Miles Austin and could possibly put up a ton of fantasy points against a porous Eagles secondary. We break down the fantasy implications.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Terrance Williams has been one of the hottest pickups on the waiver wire over the last two weeks after he caught a touchdown pass and went over the 100-yard receiving mark in an all-out shootout against the Denver Broncos in Week 5. Williams caught all four of the passes thrown to him in that game and probably scared Miles Austin into coming back into the lineup a little bit too early in Week 6.

Fantasy impact: Owners of Miles Austin may want to jump ship on the guy. Yes he has made his living over the last few years as the Cowboys go-to possession receiver, but there always seems to be an injury plaguing him of late.

Just when fantasy owners were rooting for Austin to come back, Williams came into the fold and changed things. It wasn't realistic for Williams to come into a Sunday night game against the rival Washington Redskins and repeat what he did in Week 5 against the Denver Broncos, but you just knew that quarterback Tony Romo would have to show Williams some love after that performance.

Though the Cowboys third-round draft pick in 2013 has only been thrown the ball six times in the past two weeks, he's caught every single one of them and has a touchdown in both games. Although Williams may not reach the 100-yard mark consistently, he's got to have the edge over Austin at this point In terms of where Romo is going to look to throw the ball.
