Fantasy football start/sit advice: Week 10: Terrance Williams

Tom Pennington

Sunday's game was the Cowboys' wide receiver's first without a touchdown in his last five. Can he get back on the scoreboard? We break down the fantasy implications.

Dallas Cowboys rookie wide receiver Terrance Williams didn't score a touchdown in Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings. It was the first time Williams had been held scoreless since September, as he had reached the end zone in four consecutive games. Sunday, he looks to get back on that streak against the New Orleans Saints.

Williams took over the Cowboys No. 2 receiver slot from the injured Miles Austin in Week 4, and went for 222 yards and a touchdown in his first two games. On the season, he has 477 yards on 28 catches, and four touchdowns.

Fantasy impact: Williams' touchdown streak disguised the fact that he has only had one truly big-yardage game all season, and that came in the Week 5 shootout against the Denver Broncos, when everyone on the field had high yardage totals. The receiver is averaging less than 50 yards a game in the four games since, and had only two receptions apiece in three of the four games.

Sunday, against a Saints team that is the tenth most difficult for opposing wide receivers in the NFL, Williams is far from a sure thing. Many experts have Williams slotted in the mid-20s among wide receivers this week, but that ranking is really relying on him to score again. That's a fool's gamble; Williams is a low-end flex at absolute best.
