Fantasy Football: Terrance Williams Becoming a Must-Play at Flex

In fantasy football, there are two things that managers want to see. First, they want to see consistent play from their players from week to week. Second, they want to see the most important part of fantasy football which is touchdowns.

Considering both of these factors, then Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Terrance Williams is becoming a must play in almost all fantasy football leagues.

Williams was put into the lineup for the Cowboys when Miles Austin went down with an injury. Many people felt that Austin would have a very good season, especially being healthy from his injuries for the first time in a long while. Well, this did not last long for Austin. When Williams heard opportunity knocking, he answered in a huge way.

After Williams scored in his Week 8 game against the Detroit Lions, he set a Cowboys record in touchdowns scored in consecutive games. This means that Williams will be in the lineup every weekend. Forget about Miles Austin overtaking Williams; it’s just not going to happen anytime soon.

Because of this, Williams should be starting regularly on your fantasy football team as a WR2 or as a flex play. Look, the guy is scoring touchdowns. What more can you ask from a guy who is not your top receiving option? With the bye weeks coming up, especially if you own Justin Blackmon or Calvin Johnson, he will be a huge asset to your team in Week 9.

If you do not own Williams and you have any intent of trying to obtain him on your team, I suggest do it now and do it quickly. The owner who has Williams on their team already knows how valuable he is, and if you want him you will have to give up a decent player to get him.

Not bad for a player who was barely even owned in leagues before Week 5.
