Cardinals' Maxx Williams: Another injury-plagued season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Cardinals' Maxx Williams: Available Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Cardinals' Maxx Williams: Questionable for Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Cardinals' Maxx Williams: Upgraded to limited in practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Cardinals' Maxx Williams: Non-participant Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Cardinals' Maxx Williams: Unavailable Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (ankle) is listed as inactive Saturday against the 49ers.

Williams' absence isn't much of a surprise after he failed to practice in any capacity this week, the result of an ankle injury. In Williams' stead, Dan Arnold (back) is poised to be the Cardinals' primary tight end, with Darrell Daniels and Seth DeValve available as well.

Cardinals' Maxx Williams: Tagged questionable for Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (ankle) is considered questionable for Saturday's matchup against the 49ers, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

The 26-year-old was unable to contribute even a limited practice session this week, but he still seemingly has a chance to suit up Saturday afternoon. Williams was forced to exit last Sunday's win over the Eagles after 23 offensive snaps, but not before he collected a season-high receiving total of 42 yards on his one catch.

Cardinals' Maxx Williams: Doesn't practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (ankle) was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice.

As was fellow tight end Darrell Daniels (hamstring). With the duo unable to practice so far this week, Dan Arnold is the sole healthy TE on the Cardinals' active roster. The team will determine the availability for both Williams and Daniels upon the release of its final Week 16 injury report Thursday.

Cardinals' Maxx Williams: Not practicing Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (ankle) was not spotted at the portion of Wednesday's practice open to the media, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Coach Kliff Kingsbury called Williams "day-to-day" after he was forced out of last weekend's win over the Eagles, but it doesn't seem like the tight end is ready to resume handling reps yet. With Darrell Daniels (hamstring) also working through an injury, Dan Arnold is Arizona's only fully healthy tight end to begin Week 16.

Cardinals' Maxx Williams: Deemed day-to-day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Kliff Kingsbury said Tuesday that Williams (ankle) is considered day-to-day, Katherine Fitzgerald of The Arizona Republic reports.

Williams left last week's win over the Eagles with an ankle injury, and Kingsbury called it "nothing too significant." The 26-year-old was listed as DNP on Tuesday's practice estimate, and his status will become clearer when the team actually takes the field Wednesday.

Cardinals' Maxx Williams: Leaves with ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (ankle) will not return to Sunday's game against the Eagles, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Williams exited Sunday's contest in the first half, but the Cardinals didn't rule him out until the third quarter. Dan Arnold could see an uptick in opportunities as long as Williams remains sidelined.

Cardinals' Maxx Williams: Gets back on box score
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams recorded two receptions (on two targets) for 17 yards during Sunday's 26-7 road victory against the Giants.

The return of Larry Fitzgerald from the reserve/COVID-19 list resulted in more two-TE sets, with Williams earning 65 percent of the snaps on offense. Meanwhile, Dan Arnold had a 2-27-1 line on 30 percent of those plays, while Seth DeValve was held without a catch on a 34-percent snap share. Despite bringing up the rear in terms of usage, Arnold is the clear pass-catching member of the unit, as Williams spends most of his time as a blocker.

Cardinals' Maxx Williams: Gets blanked Week 13
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams wasn't targeted during Sunday's 38-28 loss to the Rams.

The Cardinals mostly ditched use of tight ends in this contest, with Williams leading the way with 18 of 64 snaps on offense. Meanwhile, Dan Arnold (nine) and Seth DeValve (two) were further down the list. Arnold took full advantage of his few opportunities -- two catches, 61 yards and two TDs on three targets -- but Williams and DeValve were blanked entirely. With a 5-43-1 line on seven targets in his six appearances this season, Williams doesn't hold much sway in the fantasy realm.

Cardinals' Maxx Williams: Makes two catches Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams hauled in both targets for 10 yards during Sunday's 20-17 loss in New England.

Williams logged a season-high share of the snaps on offense (72 percent), which was well ahead of Dan Arnold (36) and practice squad callup Evan Baylis (30). Still, aside from a TD in Week 9 and a 25-yard catch Week 11, Williams has contributed almost nothing (3-14-0 on five targets) in his five appearances this season. Instead, Arnold is slightly more reliable for production (18-225-1 on 25 targets in 11 contests) than Williams on a game-to-game basis.

Cardinals' Maxx Williams: Logs full practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (illness) was listed as a full participant on Thursday's practice estimate, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Williams took Wednesday off to tend to an illness, but with his elevation to full one day later he's set to serve as the Cardinals' top tight end yet again. Meanwhile, Darrell Daniels (ankle) hasn't practiced at all this week, which could set up a scenario in which Williams and Dan Arnold are the only TEs available to the offense Sunday at New England.

Cardinals' Maxx Williams: Comes down with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams didn't take part in practice Wednesday due to an illness, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Williams has logged far more time off the field than on it this season, the result of an ankle issue that forced a lengthy stint on injured reserve. He's now come down with an illness, which at the moment isn't believed to be connected to COVID-19. Fellow tight end Darrell Daniels (ankle) also was held out Wednesday, so Dan Arnold is the only healthy Cardinals tight end at the moment.

Cardinals' Maxx Williams: Nabs two catches Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams reeled in both of his targets for 29 yards during Thursday's 28-21 loss in Seattle.

Williams accounted for the Cardinals' longest play of the game, a 25-yard catch to help set up the team's first touchdown at the start of the second quarter. Otherwise, he was relatively quiet, despite pacing Arizona tight ends in offensive snap share (57 percent). Meanwhile, Dan Arnold (a four-yard TD catch on two targets, 39 percent) and practice squad callup Evan Baylis (no targets, nine percent) scooped up the remaining work given to the position group. Williams has been tending to an ankle issue for most of the season, but since his return Week 9 he's continued to lead Cards TEs in snaps on offense.

Cardinals' Maxx Williams: Available Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (ankle) is listed as active Thursday at Seattle.

Despite logging just one limited practice this week, Williams will be available for a third straight game. He paced Cardinals tight ends with an offensive snap share of 53 percent this past Sunday, with Dan Arnold (48) and Darrell Daniels (19) behind him. However, Daniels (ankle) isn't suiting up Thursday, which could give Williams and Arnold a bit more opportunity to produce.

November 19, 2020 03:28 PM
Cardinals' Maxx Williams: Status in question for Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (ankle) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game at Seattle.

After concluding last week with back-to-back limited sessions before suiting up in Sunday's win over the Bills, Williams didn't get in any practice reps until Wednesday this week. Still, he at least took part in a practice, which can't be said for fellow tight end Darrell Daniels (ankle). If Daniels ends up sitting out Week 11, Williams -- if active -- and Dan Arnold would split all the reps at the position.

Cardinals' Maxx Williams: DNP on Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (ankle) was listed as a non-participant on Monday's practice estimate.

Williams kicked off last week with no practice reps before ending it with back-to-back limited sessions and a questionable designation for Week 10. He proceeded to lead Cardinals tight ends in offensive snap share (53 percent) during Sunday's 32-30 victory against the Bills, ahead of Dan Arnold (48) and Darrell Daniels (19). Williams wasn't targeted, while Arnold reeled in all four passes for 34 yards and Daniels left the game with an ankle injury. If Daniels needs some time off, Williams and Arnold are the only other tight ends on the active roster as Arizona prepares for Thursday's contest at Seattle.
