Fantasy Football Waiver Wire: Dallas Cowboys’ Terrance Williams
If you caught the Week 5 game between the Denver Broncos and the Dallas Cowboys you saw a jaw-dropping offensive explosion. Watching both offenses rip through the opposing defenses left an ache in my loins and a pit in my stomach wishing I could have a piece of those points.
The Cowboys are a team well known for their offensive firepower and as a result, their ranks are usually picked clean before the dust even has a chance to settle on draft day. There is, however, one glimmer of talent left out there for you to consider in the form of one Terrance Williams.
I know a quick look of his stat line before last week reveals some pretty pedestrian numbers. Williams is admittedly a rookie and has a lot to learn about the pro game. Williams is 6-foot2 and runs a slippery 4.5-second 40 time. Probably his most important skill though is his ability to come back to the quarterback.
This buys him looks and additional targets from quarterback Tony Romo. When often-injured Miles Austin missed the Week 5 game against the Broncos, Williams filled in and produced 151 yards on four catches and his first touchdown.
The production is enough to garner him even more playing time while Austin is out. Once Austin comes back, Williams could quite possibly find himself locked in as the Cowboys newest third receiver, a job previously held by flash in the pan talents Kevin Ogletree and Laurent Robinson.
Williams isn’t going to save your season and but with the weak defenses ahead on the Cowboys schedule, he could be a nice Bye week filler for you. If you play in a keeper league, he’s exactly the kind of stash player you competition will covet next summer.
