  Patriots | DJ Williams expects to be ready for camp    Sat Jun 14, 11:26 AM

New England Patriots TE DJ Williams (calf) has not been participating during organized team activities because of a strained calf, but he expects to be ready for the start of training camp.

Footballguys view: Williams did not play up to expectations during his time with the Packers. We're not expecting him to do much with the Patriots even though the athletic ability is there to be a decent move tight end.

  Patriots | Week 15 Inactives    Sun Dec 15, 11:31 AM

The New England Patriots have declared WR Aaron Dobson, OG Chris Barker, TE DJ Williams, DL Jake Bequette, WR Kenbrell Thompkins, DL Michael Buchanan, LB Steve Beauharnais inactive for Week 15.

Footballguys view: Josh Boyce will get more work as a receiver with Dobson and Thompkins out. He is a deep desperation play with a little bump if your league gives distance TD bonuses.

  Patriots | Rob Gronkowski placed on IR    Mon Dec 9, 04:47 PM

The New England Patriots have placed TE Rob Gronkowski (concussion, knee) on Injured Reserve, ending his 2013 season. The team also re-signed free-agent TE DJ Williams. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Crushing to fantasy owners who held onto him but it's time to get his replacement back in the lineup. At least you got a ton of nice games from Gronk....he was a good fantasy player....sorry, I promised myself I wouldn't cry....

  Patriots | DJ Williams re-signs    Mon Dec 9, 10:19 AM

The New England Patriots re-signed TE DJ Williams to the active roster.

Footballguys view: Williams will be part of a rotation that tries to take the place of Rob Gronkowski. We're not recommending fantasy owners rush out and go get him. The team is likely to de-emphasize the position without Gronk on the field. They'll use a rotation of Williams and Michael Hoomanawanui.

  Jaguars | Four claimed    Sun Sep 1, 03:21 PM

The Jacksonville Jaguars claimed TE DJ Williams (Packers), TE Clay Harbor (Eagles), LB J.T. Thomas (Bears) and WR Stephen Burton (Vikings) off waivers.

Footballguys view: The Jags obviously envision a role for a H-back/move tight end type of player as both Harbor and Williams fit the bill. It makes sense for a team with a new head coach be mining the cuts of other teams while he is cleaning house on the roster he inherited.

  Packers | Three cut    Sat Aug 31, 03:10 PM

The Green Bay Packers waived RB Alex Green, TE Matthew Mulligan and TE DJ Williams.

Footballguys view: Green had a shot to impress last year and failed to make a positive impact despite getting 134 carries. The Packers move forward with Johnathan Franklin and James Starks behind Eddie Lacy.

  Patriots | Two TEs could be trade targets    Sun Jun 30, 11:46 AM

The New England Patriots could show interest in Green Bay Packers TE DJ Williams and Philadelphia Eagles TE Clay Harbor if they look to acquire another tight end in a trade.

Footballguys view: Williams is a talented move TE with good run after the catch ability. He's buried on the depth chart in Green Bay behind Jermichael Finley and hasn't received much playing time during his pro career. Harbor is expenable because the team selected Zach Ertz in the 2013 NFL draft and added James Casey in free agency.
