Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 13: Terrance Williams

Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY

The Cowboys rookie wide receiver had one of his worst games Sunday. Can he bounce back on Thanksgiving? We break down the fantasy implications.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Terrance Williams' rookie season has been on something of a bell curve trajectory; he was barely fantasy-relevant his first few weeks, but receiver Miles Austin's injury brought Williams into the Cowboys' gameplan, and he blossomed in the middle of the season, with touchdowns in four straight games and five of six. It fell off after that, though, culminating in his worst game since Week 3 Sunday, when Williams caught only one pass for 10 yards. Thanksgiving afternoon, Williams hopes to get back on the right path as the Cowboys host the Oakland Raiders.

For the season, Williams has 30 catches for 508 yards and five touchdowns. It was a saving effort for the Cowboys with Austin sidelined with injury, as it looked like the Cowboys didn't have much in the way of wide receiver talent behind Dez Bryant. Austin returned to action Sunday, though, cutting into Williams' targets; Tony Romo threw the ball Williams' way only twice all game.

Fantasy impact: With the exception of his huge Week 5 game against the Denver Broncos, when Williams caught four passes for 151 yards, his value all season has been very touchdown-dependent. While Austin was out, that worked, but the veteran's return stands to cut into the rookie's touchdown potential.

Basically, it's all working against Williams of late, and that makes him a fairly obvious Sit for Thursday. His owners should look elsewhere.
