Before Williams ruptured his patella tendon in 2011, he was a gifted runner with excellent change of direction, patience, receiving skill, and toughness to finish runs strong. If he shows enough of the burst that he once had at Virginia Tech, this late-round long shot could win the starting job.

Summary

Ryan Williams may be the most naturally gifted runner on the Cowboys roster. Considered a long shot by most, it's notable that he has more guaranteed money in his contract than Darren McFadden. Williams was a 2nd round pick in 2011 and slated to be the Cardinals starter before tearing up his knee. Knee and shoulder woes have limited Williams to just 54 career carries (in four seasons), but the talent remains. Fantasy owners shouldn't bet on Williams, but if he gets a heavy workload in the preseason and looks good in the process, Williams is the very definition of a high upside sleeper. (May 16)
