Summary

After three seasons as a backup Shawn Williams finally broke into the starting lineup in 2016. The team signed him to a four year extension heading into last year when they let previous starter Reggie Nelson walk, so it seems they are comfortable with Williams as their long term answer at strong safety. He is the most physical presence Cincinnati has fielded at strong safety since Darryl Williams nearly two decades ago, and brings big play ability as well. Fantasy owners would like to see better tackle production than the 59 solo stops Williams made over his fifteen games last season. There is plenty of potential for that to happen. Even if he continues at the same pace, 60-65 solo stops with 25 or so assists, 4-5 turnovers and half a dozen broken up passes will be enough to make Williams a quality third starter in most leagues.
