Injury Knee - ACL
2019 Fantasy Outlook
An underwhelming pro day and a 2017 off-field incident led to Williams being passed on in the 2018 NFL Draft despite having compiled a 96-1345-14 receiving line during his sole season at CSU. The Dolphins' wideout room remains nebulous at best behind DeVante Parker, Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson, giving Williams a chance to make the 53-man roster. While he could require time to develop at the NFL level, Williams has made a strong push for snaps throughout training camp and appears on track to surpass the likes of Brice Butler, Jakeem Grant and Isaiah Ford on the depth chart.

Knee - ACL
March 9, 2020
Williams (knee) said Monday that he will "definitely" be ready for the start of the 2020 regular season, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.
ANALYSIS
Williams continues to work back from an ACL tear that he suffered Nov. 3, as the team is hopeful that he'll be ready by training camp. A return by Week 1 would give the Colorado State product 10 months to complete his rehab program. Williams had a solid rookie season before getting hurt, posting 32 catches for 428 yards and three touchdowns through eight games. The team could be cautious with Williams, especially considering he'll turn 23 years old in late March, but he has a good chance to be a starter in time when he returns to full strength.
