Saints' Marcus Williams: Memorable mistake contributes to playoff defeat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams had five tackles (three solo) and an interception in Sunday's 29-24 NFC divisional-round loss to the Vikings.

Despite another solid statistical performance -- including nabbing a momentum-shifting interception in the second half -- all anyone will remember from the Saints' playoff defeat is Williams' incredible misplay on the game's final play, in which the rookie safety whiffed on a simple tackle that almost certainly would have clinched the game for New Orleans. Notwithstanding Williams' memorable mistake, the former Utah product started all 15 regular-season games he played in after being picked by the Saints in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft. A ball-hawking free safety in college, Williams was critical to the Saints' remarkable defensive turnaround, recording 73 total tackles and four interceptions in his first NFL season. Williams should again start at free safety in New Orleans next season and his playmaking potential and dependable tackle production should make him a quality option in many IDP leagues.

Saints' Marcus Williams: Eight tackles as strong rookie season continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams had eight tackles (six solo) in Sunday's 31-26 NFC wild-card victory over the Panthers.

Williams played every defensive snap for New Orleans and has been performing at a high level for weeks. The Saints' rookie starting free safety has recorded at least six total tackles in each of the team's last seven games while also recording three interceptions. Williams' rookie season has been a tremendous success and the safety should be a quality IDP option in next week's divisional-round contest against the Vikings.

Saints' Marcus Williams: Two interceptions in finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams had eight tackles (seven solo) and two interceptions in Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers.

Williams was all over the field in the Saints' regular-season finale. The Saints' starting free safety had two picks, which doubled his season total, and his 73 total tackles rank third on the team. Williams will look to continue his stellar rookie season in next Sunday's playoff game against the Panthers.

Saints' Marcus Williams: Records second interception
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams had six tackles (five solo) and an interception in Thursday night's 20-17 loss to the Falcons.

The pick was Williams' second of the season. The rookie out of Utah continues to start at free safety for New Orleans and played nearly every defensive snap Thursday after missing last week's contest with a groin injury. Williams is now up to 53 total tackles -- paired with two interceptions -- which makes him worthy of roster consideration in deeper IDP leagues.

Saints' Marcus Williams: Active Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (groin) is active for Thursday's showdown with the Falcons, Josh Katzenstein of The Times-Picayune reports.

Williams was limited throughout practice during the shortened week but will suit up for the contest after failing to do so last Sunday. Look for the 21-year-old to resume his role as starter, but expect Vonn Bell to continue to see more reps in the game at free safety.
