Williams is still dealing with the aftereffects of a lateral ankle sprain from Week 1. However, he remains a regular part of the offense, which should translate to a handful of targets but not much production, as he has just two 100-yard performances in 66 career contests.
Williams (ankle) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Cardinals, Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Williams was limited at practice the last two days after not showing up on Thursday's report, but his participation Saturday puts him on pace to take the field in Week 3. A final call on Williams' status may not be made until Monday night, however, so those considering using him in fantasy lineups will want another option available if awaiting the final decision.
Williams was added to Friday's injury report as a non-participant due to an ankle injury.
Williams suffered the injury Week 1 and only came out for a few plays, then fought through it last week while catching four of five targets for 17 yards in a 42-17 loss to the Broncos. While it seemed he was the past issue when the Cowboys left him off Thursday's injury report, Williams apparently is still at less than full strength. It's unclear if he suffered a substantial setback or was primarily held out of Friday's practice for maintenance. The Cowboys face the Cardinals on Monday.
Williams caught four of five targets for only 17 yards in Sunday's loss to the Broncos.
Between the ankle injury he's playing through and the stifling Denver secondary, Williams wasn't able to get open down the field at all, having to settle for quick passes on short routes from a beleaguered Dak Prescott. Next week's game against the Cardinals may not improve Williams' fantasy outlook much, and he could well continue to produce disappointing numbers until he gets a chance to heal up over the Cowboys' Week 6 bye.
