Until Maxx Williams finds meaningful playing time, Fantasy managers shouldn't bother adding him to rosters.
Williams gathered in eight of 10 targets for 102 yards and one touchdown in nine games during the 2020 season. An ankle injury plagued Williams along the way, resulting in a stint on IR and seven games missed. When on the field, he shared TE reps with Dan Arnold -- who broke out with a 31-438-4 line on 45 targets -- and Darrell Daniels (8-92-1 on 11 targets). Williams has one year left on his current contract, while Arnold is an unrestricted free agent, so it'll be interesting to see if the latter is retained, and what the overall breakdown of the tight end room is, heading into 2021.
Williams (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Rams. The 26-year-old received the questionable tag after sitting out Week 16 with the ankle injury, but he's ready to go Sunday. Williams and Darrell Daniels (hamstring) should work behind starter Dan Arnold.
Williams (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams, Katherine Fitzgerald of The Arizona Republic reports. Williams closed out the practice week with back-to-back limited sessions, but he's still uncertain for the season finale. Darrell Daniels (hamstring) is also questionable for Sunday. Dan Arnold is expected to lead the position group regardless, and Seth DeValve will see more work against the Rams if Williams and Daniels are unavailable.
Williams (ankle) was listed as a limited participant for the Cardinals' practice session Thursday. Williams' ankle issue kept him out during Arizona's Week 16 loss to the 49ers, resulting in the 26-year-old's first absence since he overcame the ankle injury that kept him on IR between Sept. 21 and Nov. 7. He appears to be trending in a positive direction for the Cardinals' regular-season finale at the Rams, but the fact that Dan Arnold (back) has a positive outlook for Week 17 reduces the likelihood of increased passing-game involvement for Williams.
Williams (ankle) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. Williams and Darrell Daniels (hamstring) both sat out of Wednesday's session, while Dan Arnold (back) was a limited participant. Seth DeValve was the only tight end without an injury tag to start the practice week. Williams missed last week's loss to the 49ers, so he'll need to get back on the practice field by Friday to have a shot at playing in Week 17.
