Fantasy Football Profile: Roy Williams

Roy Williams changed his number hoping for a reversal of fortunes for the talented WR.  He has a full offseason to work with Tony Romo to establish a rapport that never got on track last year.  Aside from the midseason trade, he battled through a foot injury, had to live in the shadow of T.O. and the pressure of a huge contract for his hometown team, and had to play without Tony Romo because of his injury for three weeks.  Not exactly a smooth arrival to one of the biggest stages in the NFL.

With all that he went through I’m going to give his 36 catch, 430 yards, 2 TD season a mulligan.  The key will be if he can play more like the WR we saw in 2006 when he had 82 catches for 1310 yards and 7 TDs, or the WR who hasn’t had 900 yards receiving in any other year.  My guess is it’s somewhere in the middle.  I love Roy as a WR3, and could tolerate him as a WR2 if I was loaded elsewhere.  I would take him in the 5th round.  Any sooner I rather go RB, QB, or elite TE.  A healthy Roy Williams should bring 80 receptions for 1100 yard, and 8 TDs.
