The afternoon got off to a bad start for Williams, who fumbled the opening kickoff. The Raiders' Greg Jenkins recovered the fumble and returned it 23 yards for a touchdown.
Williams finished with just one catch for 5 yards in the first half, despite four targets. One of those targets came on a 4-yard pass in the end zone, but Williams really had no chance at the touchdown since it was more of a throwaway play by Tony Romo to avoid an interception.
Williams was targeted six times, which trailed only Dez Bryant's nine targets. Williams has had three or fewer catches in his last five games. The Cowboys are back in action Week 14 at Chicago.
It's been a rough stretch of games for
Williams is obviously a big-play threat for Dallas, as he is averaging 16.9 yards per reception. Unfortunately, Williams is a boom-or-bust player for Fantasy owners, so is Week 13 vs. Oakland (Thursday) the time to put Williams back into Fantasy lineups?
Wide receivers are averaging 25.7 Fantasy points per week against Oakland, which is the fifth-highest average. Wide receivers are also averaging 196.1 receiving yards and have totaled 13 touchdowns in 11 games against Oakland.
No. 2/No. 3 receivers have done well against the Raiders. Players like Eric Decker, Vincent Brown, Emmanuel Sanders, Riley Cooper, Rueben Randle and Justin Hunter have all had big games against Oakland, so maybe Williams will be the next secondary receiver to have a big outing against the Raiders.
Perhaps Williams could be used in deep Fantasy formats Week 13, but he's definitely a low-end option given his boom-or-bust status.
