Williams was one of the few starters who played the majority of the game, and he produced the team's only touchdown when he connected with Tony Romo on a three-yard play in the second quarter. He will finish the regular season with four touchdowns to his name, and he should continue to serve as one of the team's complementary offensive options as the postseason begins.
Williams does not have an injury designation ahead of Sunday's game against the Eagles after fully practicing Friday.
Williams was absent from Thursday's session while attending to a personal matter, but he returned in a full capacity Friday to remove any concern over his Week 17 status. Although Williams will play Sunday, his involvement could be limited by the fact the Cowboys have already clinched the NFC's top seed. If that results in a somewhat-shortened workday for Williams, Brice Butler could see more snaps at an outside receiver position.
Williams didn't practice Thursday due to a personal concern, Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
It's unclear when Williams will be able to return to the team, but there's been no indication that he's slated to miss Sunday's season finale in Philadelphia. Expect the Cowboys to touch on his status as game day approaches.
Williams nabbed four of four targets for 61 yards in Monday's win over the Lions.
Williams fell off after the Cowboys' Week 7 bye, catching just nine passes in six games as Dez Bryan returned to form. He's caught 12 passes in the last three games, however, as rookie signal caller Dak Prescott has settled in. Dallas is still a run-first team and Williams, with Bryant, tight end Jason Witten and slotman Cole Beasley all flashing prominence this season, might be pretty low on the totem pole some games, but his stock in this offense is certainly on the rise.
Williams caught three of four targets for 30 yards in Sunday's 26-20 win over the Buccaneers.
Dak Prescott made little effort to stretch the field Sunday night, a strategy that didn't exactly play into Williams' skill set. Dallas has too many passing options, and too much incentive to play a ball possession game, for the fourth-year receiver to be a consistent fantasy play.
