Saints' Marcus Williams: Fails to take leap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams made two tackles (zero solo) in Sunday's divisional-round playoff win over the Eagles. He finished the 2018 regular season with 60 tackles (49 solo), one sack, two interceptions, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery.

Williams played a substantial role for the Saints as a rookie last year -- racking up 73 tackles and four interceptions in his first NFL season -- which led many to peg him as a 2018 breakout candidate. In his second season, however, Williams failed to make the leap many projected, as he managed just modest production despite starting all 16 games at free safety in New Orleans. Still, Williams should remain the frontrunner to start again in 2019. While he is unlikely to be a significant difference-maker in the run game, he can still be a quality fantasy option, particularly if he returns to his ball-hawking ways.

Saints' Marcus Williams: Tallies first sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams recorded five tackles (all solo), including a sack, a forced fumble, and a fumble recovery in Thursday's win over Atlanta.

Williams made a huge play Thursday, knifing up the middle to strip the ball from Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan in the red zone. It was the first sack of Williams' career and a game-altering play for New Orleans. His five solo tackles tied his season high as well. Looking ahead, Williams and the Saints will face off against the Cowboys in Week 13.

Saints' Marcus Williams: Second interception of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams had four tackles (three solo) and an interception in Sunday's win against the Bengals.

Williams intercepted an ill-advised deep ball at the Saints five-yard line and returned the pick, his second of the season, for 78 yards. With only 33 total tackles through nine games, Williams has not had the breakout season many had hoped, but the second-year free safety continues to play nearly every defensive snap for New Orleans and still ranks fourth on the team in tackles. With the Saints scheduled to face a number of pass-happy offenses in the second half, Williams could still be a quality defensive-back option in deeper IDP leagues.

Saints' Marcus Williams: Practices in full
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Williams suffered a groin injury during New Orleans' win over the Ravens in Week 7 which caused him miss the contest's conclusion, but the issue does not appears severe given his participation in practice to begin the week. Barring any setbacks, Williams seems on track to suit up for Sunday's game against the Vikings.

Saints' Marcus Williams: Suffers injury in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams suffered an undisclosed injury during New Orleans' 24-23 victory over the Ravens on Sunday, Mike Triplett of ESPN.com reports.

Williams was absent during the end of the Week 7 contest due to the undisclosed injury. Coach Sean Payton reportedly expects Williams to get healthy in a reasonable amount of time, so the injury does not appear exceedingly serious. Expect an update on the starting safety's health in the coming days.
