K'Waun Williams
27-Year-Old CornerbackCB
San Francisco 49ers
2018 Fantasy Outlook
Williams had his first season with the 49ers in 2017 and looked like a solid cornerback, making 54 tackles, one sack, five pass breakups and one interception. His opportunities may take a hit this season, however, as the Niners picked up Richard Sherman and Jimmie Ward is healthy. Fantasy owners shouldn't touch Williams, but they should be quick on the trigger of there are injuries ahead of him. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a three-year, $8.85 million contract with the 49ers in September of 2017.
Solid in slot role

January 24, 2019
Williams finished with 45 tackles (40 solo) and two passes defended in 14 games this past season.
ANALYSIS
Williams began the campaign as the 49ers' slot corner and hung onto that role through the end of the season. The case could be made that the 28-year-old outperformed fellow corner Akhello Witherspoon in coverage, but the latter's superior size (6-foot-2) and athleticism is better suited to line up on the outside opposite Richard Sherman. Williams will likely have to re-earn his slot role in camp -- especially if the team brings in more corners via the draft -- but the veteran should be the frontrunner for the job based on his solid performance over the last two years in San Francisco.

2015 Fantasy Outlook
Williams is highly unlikely to beat out Joe Haden or Tramon Williams for a starting cornerback role, but should retain his current job as the extra defensive back in nickel packages. He was more impressive than the highly-touted rookie Justin Gilbert in 2014, and will look to carry that momentum into the upcoming season.
