Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
2016
2015
The 2015 second-rounder finds himself firmly on the roster bubble after the Ravens spent first- and third-round picks on tight ends Hayden Hurst and Mark Andrews. Williams was billed as an athletic pass catcher in the same vein as Hurst and Andrews coming out of Minnesota, but a serious knee injury washed out his 2016 season and he hardly saw the field in 2018. Nick Boyle is a near lock to make the roster thanks to his standout blocking ability, and the draft picks will both be getting their shots as well, which leaves Williams at the mercy of the Ravens' numbers game in terms of roster spots. If the Ravens do keep Williams, that will mean four tight ends on the 53-man roster. And in that scenario, Williams would be the No. 4 tight end. With that, it's tough to envision Williams carving out much of a role this season, even after Hurst suffered a foot injury in late August.
The former second-round pick has been something of a disappointment to this point in his career, with 32 catches over 18 games. That said, a knee injury cost him 12 games last season, so it'd be unfair to write off Williams after two incomplete campaigns. He probably won't be an option for run-first situations, but the Ravens could use him as a part-time weapon in the passing game, with Ben Watson and/or Nick Boyle handling most of the blocking work. Baltimore's tight end depth chart thinned out considerably when Dennis Pitta and Crockett Gillmore suffered season-ending injuries this summer. Watson and Boyle represent the main competition for snaps.
Williams entered last season with a bit of optimism, as the team's lack of quality receivers seemed to open the door for the first tight end selected in the draft. Alas, he lost the starting job in training camp to Crockett Gillmore and never factored into the offense much, even in the six games Gillmore missed to injury. At 6-4, 250, Williams might have at least grabbed some goal-line looks, but even there he rarely had his number called – just four red-zone targets, three inside the 10, no TDs. Even if Gillmore is used more as blocker this season, Williams still has to fend off free-agent signee Ben Watson, who had 74 receptions last year for the Saints. The Ravens also added Mike Wallace to the wideout mix, and WR Breshad Perriman, who missed all of his rookie season with a knee injury, should be healthy.
The first tight end selected in the 2015 NFL Draft, Williams surprisingly slipped to late in the second round, probably because of his 4.78 40-yard dash time. His other combine numbers were good, and he's the most polished receiver among rookie tight ends. While he profiles as an eventual starter and serious pass-catching threat, Williams did land with a team that has some other options at this position. However, 2014 third-rounder Crockett Gillmore is more of a blocker, while Dennis Pitta (hip) may be forced into retirement by a second serious hip injury in the last two years. Also working in Williams' favor is the fact that the Ravens have some serious uncertainty at wide receiver, potentially opening up more target opportunities during his rookie campaign. Gillmore locked down the starting job with a strong training camp, but Williams is still expected to have a role in two-tight end formations and on passing downs.
