Steelers' Vince Williams: No tackles in loss
Williams failed to record a tackle against Denver on Sunday, and finished the regular season with 46 tackles (34 solo), including a half sack and two fumble recoveries. Primarily a special teams' player, Williams has seen a steady decline in playing time on defensive during his three seasons in the NFL. After playing 37.2 percent of Pittsburgh's defensive snaps in his rookie season, Williams was on the field only 25.1 percent of the time in 2014, with that number dropping to just 17.3 percent this season. That is not a trend fantasy owners look for when drafting IDP players.
