Terrance Williams nabs touchdown, salvaging fantasy value

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

The Cowboys wide receiver had 71 yards and a score Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Terrance Williams had the lone receiving touchdown of the team's game against the Philadelphia Eagles, a 9-yard fourth quarter score that brought the game to its final score of 17-3.

In a game that was expected to be a shootout, offense ended up being at a premium, as Williams caught six passes for 71 yards in the game. It equaled his second-highest yardage output of the season, and was his third straight game with a touchdown.

Fantasy impact: Williams has seen his playing time increase as the team's normal No. 2 receiver, Miles Austin, has battled hamstring issues. At this point, he has to be considered the team's No. 2, with Austin catching zero passes on three targets Sunday.

The low scoring in Sunday's game was likely an aberration for a Cowboys team that was averaging more than 30 points a game entering Sunday. Assuming that's true, and the Cowboys return to their high-scoring ways, it's reasonable to expect that Williams' strong production could continue.
