Ravens' Brandon Williams: Lands on reserve/COVID-19 list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

Williams had close contact with a person infected with the illness and did not actually test positive himself according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network. Still, the NFL's protocol rules dictate that he will have to be isolated for at least five days. As a result, the starting nose tackle's absence Sunday should result in more snaps for Justin Ellis in the middle.

Ravens' Brandon Williams: Restructures contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams and Baltimore have agreed to terms on a restructured contract with a base value of $8.25 million over the next two years, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Williams' restructured deal includes $8.25 million guaranteed. He previously carried a $19 million salary over the next two seasons, without any guarantees, so this move frees up $3 million in cap space for the Ravens. The 31-year-old defensive tackle is locked in for his usual starting role Sunday against the Browns.

Ravens' Brandon Williams: Another 34-tackle season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams notched 34 tackles (13 solo), one sack and one recovered fumble across 14 regular-season games in 2019.

Williams tied his 2018 totals for tackles and sacks, despite appearing in two fewer contests this season. The defensive tackle remains under contract with the Ravens through 2021, but he doesn't carry much IDP value due to a lack of upside as a pass rusher.

Ravens' Brandon Williams: Set to rest in Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (coach's decision) won't play in Sunday's game against the Steelers, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.

Williams is having a solid season, recording 35 tackles and a sack over 14 games. The Ravens have clinched the No. 1 playoff spot in the AFC, so Williams will take a week of rest. Patrick Ricard and Justin Ellis should both enjoy upticks in usage in Williams' stead.

Ravens' Brandon Williams: Notches first sack of season in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams recorded a sack and a solo tackle in Sunday's win over the Texans.

It was the first sack of the year for the 30-year-old, who has never recorded more than two in a single campaign. He's up to 19 tackles (seven solo) on the year.

Ravens' Brandon Williams: Suiting up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (knee) is active for Sunday's game versus the Steelers.

Williams will start at defensive end, and he'll play a pivotal role in slowing down Pittsburgh's backfield duo of James Conner and Jaylen Samuels. When the Ravens were without him last week, Nick Chubb ran all over them, so Williams' presence should shore up their defensive front.

Ravens' Brandon Williams: Questionable tag for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game versus the Steelers, Jonas Shaffer of The Baltimore Sun reports.

Williams was able to elevate to full practice participation Friday, so he has a good shot to play Sunday. That should help the Ravens defense, since when he sat out last week, Nick Chubb ran wild for 165 yards, three touchdowns and 8.3 YPC.

Ravens' Brandon Williams: Not practicing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (knee) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Jonas Shaffer of The Baltimore Sun reports.

Williams was a late addition to the injury report Saturday and didn't play in this past Sunday's game versus the Browns. His initial absence from practice this week puts him on track for another missed game, but he still has two more days to get back onto the field. If Williams is unable to play Week 5 versus the Steelers, Patrick Ricard and Daylon Mack are expected to rotate in at defensive end.

Ravens' Brandon Williams: Surprise inactive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (knee) won't play in Sunday's divisional game against the Browns.

This news comes as quite a surprise, considering Williams was expected to suit up coming into the contest. He was a late addition to the injury report Saturday, but as evidenced by this news, the injury seems to be serious enough to keep him sidelined. In his stead, look for Patrick Ricard to see an increase in snaps on the defensive line for Week 4.

Ravens' Brandon Williams: Expected to suit up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (knee) is expected to play in Sunday's contest against the Browns, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Williams was a late addition to the team's injury report prior to the game but, as evidenced by this news, it could've been nothing more than a precaution. If Williams does indeed go, he's expected to resume his role as one of the starting defensive ends for the Baltimore front.

Ravens' Brandon Williams: Added to injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Ravens have added Williams to the injury report ahead of Sunday's game against the Browns due to a knee injury.

It is unclear how Williams picked up the injury, but it presumably occurred at practice. If he is ultimately unable to suit up, look for Patrick Ricard to fill in for him at defensive end. More information will be made available closer to kickoff.

Ravens' Brandon Williams: Excelling in run defense
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams recorded 30 tackles, two pass breakups, one fumble recovery and one touchdown in 12 games during the 2017 season.

Williams was a nightmare for opposing ball carriers in 2017 and ultimately graded out as Pro Football Focus' third-highest-graded 3-4 defensive end against the run. In fact, the Ravens' run defense fell off a cliff when he wasn't available to play, evidenced by the fact Baltimore surrendered just 82.2 rushing yards per game on a 2.5-yards-per-carry clip with Williams in the lineup compared to 169.5 yards per game and 4.3 yards per carry without him. However, his fantasy utility pales in comparison to his real-life value given his meager statistical production, leaving Williams off the IDP radar in most formats ahead of the 2018 campaign.

Ravens' Brandon Williams: Questionable for Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals with a back injury.

Williams was a limited participant at practice Friday to earn the questionable tag. Willie Henry and Bronson Kaufusi would see increased snap counts if Williams is unable to play Week 17.

Ravens' Brandon Williams: Five tackles in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams racked up five tackles, including one tackle for loss, in Sunday's 24-16 loss to the Vikings.

After a four-game absence due to a foot injury, Williams returned to the fold and held up his end of the bargain along the Ravens' front. However, Baltimore was still gashed for 169 yards on the ground while giving up 5.1 yards per carry. His 45 snaps were a season high, as were his five tackles. It seems that Williams is now fully healthy ahead of Thursday's game against the Dolphins.

Ravens' Brandon Williams: Active Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (foot) is active for the Ravens' Week 7 tilt against Minnesota.

Williams was expected to play after being a full participant in practice throughout the week. Expect him to see his typical role along the starting defensive line.

Ravens' Brandon Williams: Questionable for Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (foot) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings.

Since Williams was a full participant in practice all week, we assume he'll ultimately be given the thumbs up to play prior to Sunday's 1:00 PM ET kickoff. If not, the Ravens could be susceptible against the run, considering they've surrendered 169.5 rushing yard per games without him in the lineup this year -- compared to 85.0 yards per game in Week 1 and Week 2 before Williams injured his foot.

Ravens' Brandon Williams: Logs full practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (foot) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

The fact Williams wasn't limited in any capacity suggests his foot injury is behind him. His availability for Sunday's tilt with the Vikings would be a huge boost for a Ravens run defense that's bled 169.5 rushing yards per game during Williams' four-week absence.

Ravens' Brandon Williams: Out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (foot) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Bears.

Williams will be missing his fourth game in a row due to his foot injury. Look for Willie Henry to draw another start at defensive end as Williams seeks to return for next week's matchup with the Vikings.

October 13, 2017 03:56 PM
Ravens' Brandon Williams: Receives doubtful designation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (foot) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Bears.

Williams will likely miss his fourth consecutive game Sunday, affording rookie fourth-round pick Willie Henry another start at defensive end. If he sits out Sunday, his next opportunity to play will be Week 7 against the Vikings.

October 6, 2017 04:08 PM
Ravens' Brandon Williams: Ruled out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (foot) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Raiders.

Williams didn't practice at all this week and has been sidelined since Week 2 with the injury. He's tasked mostly with sealing the edge rather than rushing the passer in the Ravens' 3-4 scheme, so Williams won't carry much value in IDP formats once he heals up.
