Mario Williams: Released by Dolphins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams was released by the Dolphins on Thursday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Considering Williams' poor 2016 season, during which he recorded only 1.5 sacks and was eventually replaced as a starter by Andre Branch, it is not surprising to see him get the axe. He would have been owed $10.5 million against the cap in 2017, of which the Dolphins save $8.5 million by releasing him. With Williams gone, Branch could yet again be called upon to start on the Dolphins' defensive line.

Dolphins' Mario Williams: Disappointing first season with Dolphins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams is a potential salary-cap cut this offseason, ESPN reports.

The Dolphins signed Williams to a two-year, $17 million contract last spring in order to replace the pass-rushing prowess Olivier Vernon (Giants) provided. However, Williams logged a career-low 1.5 sacks during his first season in Miami, a disappointing total considering he averaged 10.7 sacks per season over the last four years. Now due $8.5 million in 2017, Williams is a candidate to be cut this offseason in order to free up cap space.

Dolphins' Mario Williams: Absent from injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (ankle) wasn't listed on the Dolphins' injury report Wednesday.

Williams has been dealing with an ankle injury for weeks, playing through the injury often before sitting out Week 17. The time off likely gave the struggling veteran time to heal. Fully healthy in time for the playoffs, he'll look to play better than he did in the regular season, where he registered just 13 tackles and 1.5 sacks.

Dolphins' Mario Williams: Expected to be waived
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (ankle) is expected to be waived by the Dolphins this offseason, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

The Williams experiment didn't work out as planned for the Dolphins this season, as the veteran defensive lineman lost his starting job midway through the season due to a lack of production. In 13 games, he has only registered 13 tackles, 1.5 sacks, and one pass deflection. Furthermore, Williams is the sixth-highest paid player on the team and would make over $8.4 million next season. He is expected to be waived before the fifth day of the 2017 season, because if he remains on the roster any longer he will be guaranteed $3.5 million for next year.

Dolphins' Mario Williams: Inactive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Patriots.

Williams' health won't be tested in Week 17 with the playoffs looming, so Jason Jones and Andre Branch figure to see expanded roles at defensive end.

Dolphins' Mario Williams: Questionable to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (ankle) is questionable to play Sunday versus the Patriots.

Williams was a full participant in practice all week, so he'll likely be cleared to play prior to kick off.

Dolphins' Mario Williams: Active Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (ankle) is active for Saturday's game against the Bills.

Williams has played through his ankle injury for weeks, though it has prevented him from being the pass rusher he's been in years past, as he has just 1.5 sacks on the season. He'll likely be a situational pass rusher on Saturday.

Dolphins' Mario Williams: Questionable for Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams is questionable to play Saturday due to an ankle injury, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

Williams has actually been dealing with this injury for months. It has impacted his play as he hasn't been the pass rusher the Dolphins were hoping for. Even if he were to suit up versus Buffalo it would likely only be as a situational pass rusher.

Dolphins' Mario Williams: In uniform Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (ankle) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Jets.

Williams is out there if you need him Saturday, but with just 13 tackles and 1.5 sacks in 11 games to date, he's off the radar in most fantasy formats.

December 14, 2016 04:20 PM
Dolphins' Mario Williams: Limited Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (ankle) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

Williams was unable to suit up in Week 14 due to the ankle issue, but he may be able to return for Saturday's tilt against the Jets. He'll look to avoid any setbacks during Thursday's practice before traveling to New York.

Dolphins' Mario Williams: Out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (ankle) is inactive for the game Sunday versus Arizona, Alain Poupart of Dolphins.com reports.

Williams originally suffered the injury Week 10 in San Diego and still hasn't progressed well enough to play. He has been a disappointment in his first season with Miami as he hasn't provided the pass rush expected of him.

Dolphins' Mario Williams: Doubtful to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Cardinals due to an ankle injury.

Williams was limited in practice Wednesday and then sat out Thursday and Friday's sessions. Look for Jason Jones to see some added time if Williams is sidelined.

Dolphins' Mario Williams: Clear of illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (illness) has been a full participant in practice this week.

Williams was bothered with an illness Sunday against the 49ers but has since recovered, making him fully available for Week 13's tilt with the Ravens.

Dolphins' Mario Williams: Deals with illness Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams was sidelined during Sunday's game against the 49ers due to an illness, James Walker of ESPN.com reports.

Williams' illness likely isn't something that will keep him sidelined for Week 13 against the Ravens, but he was unable to remain on the field Sunday. Williams' disappointing season thus far in Miami continues.

Dolphins' Mario Williams: Active Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (ankle) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the 49ers.

Williams is set to return to game action after missing last week's contest against the Rams due to an ankle issue. He has surpassed two tackles in just one contest so far this season, keeping his IDP fantasy value relatively low.

Dolphins' Mario Williams: Expected back Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (ankle) is expected to play Sunday against the 49ers, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Williams was unable to play last weekend due to the injury, and with 1.5 sacks on the season, he remains a fairly weak fantasy option.

Dolphins' Mario Williams: Iffy to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (ankle) is questionable to play Sunday against the 49ers, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

Williams was questionable to play last Sunday as well and ultimately watched the game from the sideline. He wasn't able to log a complete practice this week, so, with Jason Jones (suspension) out for the next two games, Nick Williams could end up starting at defensive end.

Dolphins' Mario Williams: Inactive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (ankle) is inactive Sunday against the Rams.

After sustaining an ankle injury last week against the Chargers, the veteran defensive end will spend Week 11 on the sidelines. Look for Jason Jones and Andre Branch to see the majority of Williams' usual reps.

Dolphins' Mario Williams: Questionable to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (ankle) is questionable to play Sunday against the Rams, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

Williams sustained an ankle injury last week against the Chargers and wasn't able to practice Wednesday nor Thursday. He was back on Friday, though. If he doesn't play, look for Andre Branch or Jason Jones (knee) to move into the starting lineup.

Dolphins' Mario Williams: Considered day-to-day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Adam Gase stated Monday that Williams (ankle) is day-to-day, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Williams injured the ankle during the game Sunday and will likely be listed as questionable heading into Week 11 in Los Angeles. Williams has been a disappointment for Miami this season. He was brought along to improve the pass rush but only has one sack in nine games.
