Summary

Mario Williams has mostly provided the type of production the Bills were hoping for when they signed him to a record contract in 2012. During his three year with the Bills, he has posted 38 sacks for an average of almost 13 per year. Having other quality players on the line with him like Marcell Dareus and Jerry Hughes helps prevent opponents from stacking the line against him. His tackle numbers, however, have been somewhat underwhelming when you consider how favorable the Bills stats crew tends to be for IDPs. The move to more of a 3-4 front under new coach Rex Ryan shouldn't impact his value much, unless league hosting sites change him to a LB. As long as he keeps his DE status though, he should remain a top-10 option. (May 21)
