Jets' Leonard Williams: Has fifth-year option exercised
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jets are expected to exercise Williams' fifth-year team option before the May 3 deadline, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

Williams, now entering his fourth season, hasn't produced to the degree some expected of the 2015 first-round pick. However, Williams' meager sack total -- he has only 12 in 48 career games -- isn't entirely reflective of his pass-rushing impact; Williams has recorded 65 quarterback hits to date, including 25 in 2017, when he played through a preseason wrist injury. The Jets' decision to pick up his team option for 2019 is thus not surprising, especially since Williams' salary for that fifth year won't become guaranteed until the start of the new league year next spring.

Jets' Leonard Williams: Struggles to duplicate 2016 returns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams finished the 2017 season with 47 tackles and two sacks.

The drop in sacks from seven to two was certainly a concern for the Jets, but Williams is still easily the best defensive lineman on the team. He is likely to be asked to do even more in 2018, as the team is expected to move on from Muhammad Wilkerson, who has been incredibly poor the past two years. If that's the case, it's possible the Jets move Williams outside more, which could help his sack total move back up.

Jets' Leonard Williams: Avoids injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (back) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Patriots.

Williams' only practice of the week was a full session Friday, but apparently it was enough to avoid the questionable tag. The 23-year-old will aim to finish a quiet season on a high note against the Patriots on Sunday.

Jets' Leonard Williams: Doesn't practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (back) sat out Wednesday's practice, Connor Hughes of reports.

Williams has missed parts of his last two contests with a concussion and now a back injury. The injuries have been additional black marks on what has been a mediocre season for Williams, who has recorded 45 tackles (21 solo), two sacks and an interception through 15 games. He'll likely need some sort of practice participation over the next two days to avoid missing his first game since entering the league in 2015.

Jets' Leonard Williams: Injures back in losing effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams suffered a back injury during Sunday's game against the Chargers, Connor Hughes of reports.

The severity of Williams' injury is not yet known. The timing of the injury is a little rough given Williams was recently able to overcome a concussion that had been plaguing his availability. With Williams out, the Jets relied heavily on Kony Ealy.
