  • Saints' P.J. Williams: Makes most of depth role

    Williams had one pass deflection and one interception during the Saints' win over Washington in Week 5.

    Williams only played 24 percent of defensive snaps versus the Football Team, but he made an impact when on the field. Of course, as a result of his low weekly tackling floor, Williams doesn't possess much fantasy utility in IDP formats.

  • Saints' P.J. Williams: Suiting up Week 2

    Williams is listed as active ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Panthers, Luke Johnson of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Williams played 21 defensive snaps during Week 1 and registered one tackle and one pass defense. The 28-year-old may see an increased role in Week 2 with Marshon Lattimore (hand) inactive.

  • Saints' P.J. Williams: Back in action

    Williams (undisclosed) has been removed from the non-football injury list and is participating in training camp, John DeShazier of the Saints' official site reports.

    Williams spent the first two days of training camp on the NFI list due to an unspecified soft-tissue injury. Now cleared to play, the versatile 28-year-old will look to carve out a role in a secondary that has little at cornerback behind Marshon Lattimore.

  • Saints' P.J. Williams: Moves to NFI list

    The Saints placed Williams on the non-football injury list Wednesday due to an unspecified "soft-tissue" injury, Larry Holder of The Athletic reports.

    General manager Mickey Loomis indicated that Williams isn't expected to face a lengthy absence. The 28-year-old will have a couple weeks to get healthy for the Saints' preseason opener Aug. 14 against the Ravens.

  • Saints' P.J. Williams: Staying in Big Easy

    Williams re-signed with the Saints on a one-year contract Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Williams will return to New Orleans on a deal worth $2.3 million guaranteed. He was a quality rotational player for the Saints last season, and when asked to step into a larger role he performed adequately. As long as he's stuck in a depth role, however, Williams won't be a strong candidate for fantasy relevance in IDP formats.

  • Saints' P.J. Williams: Respectable 2020 campaign

    Williams recorded 40 tackles (31 solo), two passes defended, two fumble recoveries and an interception across 15 regular-season games in 2020.

    The fifth-year man provided quality play for the Saints despite playing his fewest snaps since his rookie season. Williams is set to become an unrestricted free agent in 2021, making his future with New Orleans unclear.

  • Saints' P.J. Williams: Practices without limitations

    Williams (hamstring) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

    Williams' hamstring injury kept him from suiting up Week 1 against the Buccaneers, but he now looks fully healthy. He's on track to play a key role in New Orleans' secondary against the Raiders on Monday, both as the primary backup to Janoris Jenkins and as a regular coverage option out of the slot.

  • Saints' P.J. Williams: Inactive Week 1

    Williams (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's Week 1 tilt against the Buccaneers.

    The fifth-year pro will therefore be unavailable to help the Saints secondary defend the Tom Brady-helmed Buccaneers offense. When healthy, Williams is expected to play an important role as a third corner and as Janoris Jenkins' primary backup at left cornerback.

  • Saints' P.J. Williams: Questionable to face Bucs

    Williams (hamstring) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's tilt against Tampa Bay.

    Williams wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report, but he's now been limited in back-to-back practices due to a hamstring injury. If Williams does manage to suit up Week 1, he stands to primarily handle snaps out of the slot.

  • Saints' P.J. Williams: Shines in training camp

    Williams was the Saints' standout on Day 1 of training camp, Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Williams picked off Jameis Winston and forced a Dwayne Washington fumble, making him the star of New Orleans' first day of training camp. Coach Sean Payton echoed that sentiment by saying, "He's one of those players that I think has good football IQ. It's good to give him some additional work." Williams re-signed with the Saints in April and is playing on a one-year contract. He'll look to improve on a disappointing 2019 season in which he only forced one turnover.

  • Saints' P.J. Williams: Re-ups in Big Easy

    Williams signed a one-year, $2 million contract with the Saints on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Williams' deal is reportedly fully guaranteed. The versatile cornerback appeared in 14 regular-season tilts in 2019 (eight starts), during which he played primarily out of the slot. Due to his lack of big-play upside and tackle consistency, Williams doesn't carry much fantasy value in IDP formats.

  • Saints' P.J. Williams: Underwhelming 2019 campaign

    Williams finished 2019 with 44 tackles (34 solo), 1.0 sacks and an interception.

    Williams finished 2019 with a three-year low in tackles while forcing just one turnover in the campaign. He started just eight of 14 regular-season games in which he appeared, and he'll be a free agent in 2020 after playing out the last year of his rookie contract.

  • Saints' P.J. Williams: Grabs interception in win

    Williams managed three tackles (all solo) and an interception in the Saints' 34-17 blowout victory over the Buccaneers on Sunday.

    Williams was one of four Saints who picked off Jameis Winston in the blowout victory, and it was the former's first of the season. Williams has been solid for New Orleans, but -- with just one sack and one interception to his name -- he's not a reliable IDP play.

  • Saints' P.J. Williams: Handed two-game ban

    Williams will miss the next two games after receiving a two-game suspension, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    Williams was arrested back in January on counts of drunken and careless driving, and will now sit out Weeks 7 and 8. The 26-year-old has 18 tackles (13 solo) with one sack, and started five of six games this season. Patrick Robinson figures to see increased work in the secondary during Williams' absence.
