Williams finally got a few looks at wide receiver in his third season in the league, and he played admirably in limited work. He found the end zone for the first time in his career, but he failed to catch a pass in the final three games of the season. He has one year left on his contract entering the 2016 season.
Nick Williams caught four balls for 40 yards in Sunday's loss to the Panthers.
Although he only had 40 receiving yards, that was good enough for Williams to be the second leading receiver on the Atlanta Falcons . He caught all four targets thrown his way, and could earn a few more looks from Matt Ryan if the Falcons try to learn more about their young players in the final few games of 2015.
He was the only Falcon to find the end zone on the day, but he still trailed Julio Jones, Roddy White and Jacob Tamme in targets. He's better suited for deeper leagues.
Nick Williams (hamstring) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the 49ers.
Williams - who has nine catches for 98 yards in seven games to date -- is in uniform Sunday, but with the likes of fellow wideouts Julio Jones, Roddy White and Justin Hardy also on hand, he's not a high-percentage fantasy play in Week 9.
Nick Williams (hamstring) is listed as probable for Sunday's game in San Francisco.
Williams will likely serve as the No. 5 wide receiver, providing depth behind Julio Jones, Roddy White, Justin Hardy and Eric Weems. Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) has been ruled out.
