2018 Fantasy Outlook
After two injury-plagued season, Williams was finally able to stay healthy in his third pro season, notching 47 tackles (34 solo), nine passes defensed and two interceptions across 16 games in 2017. Williams, however, is expected to start the year behind Marshawn Lattimore and Ken Crawley on the cornerback depth chart and will need to beat out fellow Florida State product Patrick Robinson for the nickel cornerback job in order to make an meaningful impact in most IDP leagues.

Arrested for potential DUI
CBNew Orleans Saints
January 23, 2019
Williams was arrested Wednesday in New Orleans on counts of drunken and careless driving, Ramon Antonio Vargas of The New Orleans Advocate reports.
ANALYSIS
Williams had a couple incidents involving suspicion of drunken/reckless driving during his time at Florida State, but he never faced any criminal charges. The 2015 third-round pick filled in as the Saints' nickelback in 2018 after Patrick Robinson suffered a season-ending ankle injury Sept. 23. He finished the 2018 campaign with 53 tackles (44 solo), nine pass breakups, two forced fumbles and an interception in 15 games.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2016
2015
Williams was selected in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft, but he missed all of last season with a torn hamstring injury he suffered during training camp. After what amounted to a redshirt season, Williams, now healthy, has drawn rave reviews this offseason and during the early portions of training camp. Delvin Breaux and Keenan Lewis will presumably be the Saints' starting cornerbacks to begin the season, but with the modern NFL offense frequently deploying three-wide receiver sets, Williams should still see plenty of playing time from the nickel cornerback position.
Drafted in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft, Williams will compete to be a backup cornerback.
