Battling for job

June 28, 2019
Williams is hoping to impress a new coaching staff, but he'll have competition from free-agent signee Kevin White and rookies Andy Isabella, Hakeem Butler and KeeSean Johnson, Kevin Zimmerman of 98.7 FM Arizona Sports reports.
A 2017 third-round pick, Williams has caught just 20 of 52 targets for 202 yards and a touchdown in 16 career games. Coach Kliff Kingsbury is known for an offense that places a heavy burden on the wide receivers, but even so, it isn't clear where Williams fits in. The 24-year-old needs to make a strong impression during training camp and preseason just to keep his spot on the roster.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
The Cardinals probably were hoping for more out of Williams after tabbing him in the third round of last year's draft, but he kicked off his initial training camp with less-than-ideal conditioning and couldn't recover. His performance was even more disappointing because the situation was ripe for the picking. After premier pass-catching back David Johnson was knocked out for the season Week 1, the four leading receivers behind Larry Fitzgerald's 109 catches and six touchdowns ranged from 29-33 grabs and 2-4 TDs. Williams was not one of them, finishing with a dismal line of 3-31-0 on seven targets in six appearances, all coinciding with DNPs from John Brown. Brown and Jaron Brown left via free agency, but Williams must vie with J.J. Nelson, 2018 second-round pick Christian Kirk and Brice Butler for positioning on the depth chart.
With the post-Larry Fitzgerald era in mind, the Cardinals selected a wide receiver in the middle rounds for the third time in four years, tabbing Williams in the third round of April's draft. Williams joins a receiving corps with a number of burners, namely John Brown and J.J. Nelson, both of whom are expected to block the rookie from regular reps off the bat. As a developmental player, Williams may only strike on occasion this season as head coach Bruce Arians attempts to keep opposing defenses honest.
