Terrance Williams injury update: WR questionable, expected to play for fantasy owners

The Cowboys wide receiver is listed as questionable but is fully expected to suit up in the season opener. We break down the fantasy implications.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Terrance Williams (back) is listed is questionable but is not expected to miss any time in Week 1 against the San Francisco 49ers. He missed Thursday's practice but returned on Friday. The minor injury is only considered a bruise.

Fantasy Impact: With Dallas moving on from injury-prone wide receiver Miles Austin, Williams now finds himself as the team's starter opposite Dez Bryant. He finished his rookie season with 44 catches for 736 yards and five touchdowns. He flashed some legitimate play-making ability with his impressive 16.7 YPC, and dropped a 4/151/1 line in Week 5. His role is set to expand in his second year and he should see a healthy number of targets from quarterback Tony Romo. If WIlliams can find a way to take advantage of the double coverage that defenses will likely give to stud receiver Dez Bryant, he could be in for a breakout sophomore campaign.

Fantasy Rankings: QB RB WR TE D/ST

Williams will take on a 49ers defense that is missing some major play-makers in Aldon Smith, NaVorro Bowman, and Glenn Dorsey. With an average secondary in his way, Williams will start the year as a high-ceiling WR3.
