Preston Williams
22-Year-Old Wide ReceiverWR
2019 Fantasy Outlook
An underwhelming pro day and a 2017 off-field incident led to Williams being passed on in the 2018 NFL Draft despite having compiled a 96-1345-14 receiving line during his sole season at CSU. The Dolphins' wideout room remains nebulous at best behind DeVante Parker, Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson, giving Williams a chance to make the 53-man roster. While he could require time to develop at the NFL level, Williams has made a strong push for snaps throughout training camp and appears on track to surpass the likes of Brice Butler, Jakeem Grant and Isaiah Ford on the depth chart.

Held without a catch

August 23, 2019
Williams failed to bring in either of his two targets during Thursday's 22-7 win over Jacksonville.
ANALYSIS
Williams' net stats aren't impressive, but it's worth keeping in mind that each of his targets came in the form of poorly-thrown balls by Ryan Fitzpatrick. On one target Williams beat Jalen Ramsey on a go-route but was unable to adjust to the overthrown pass. The undrafted wideout lined up with Miami's starting offense Thursday with both Albert Wilson (hip) and DeVante Parker (undisclosed) sidelined, and is making a case for a weekly role in the regular season.
