News you need to know
General News (Sat Sep 23): partially participated in Saturday's practice and is officially questionable to play this week. According to the Dallas Morning News' Jon Machota, there is a "good chance" Williams plays Monday night.
Week 3: at Arizona Cardinals
FBG says: Bad matchup. Dak Prescott and company received the benefit of an unnaturally pass-heavy game script last week as Prescott attempted a career-high 50 passes, completing 60% of them for 238 yards and two touchdowns. Prescott also made a few costly mistakes though, coughing up two interceptions--one of which went to Aqib Talib in the end zone, who ran it back 102 yards for a touchdown. Prescott really forced the ball to his primary weapons on offense, targeting Dez Bryant a staggering 16 times and Jason Witten 13 times. Bryant was well covered for most of the game, hauling in only seven receptions for 59 yards with a touchdown. Witten led the offense with 10 receptions for 97 yards and a touchdown as well. It is worth noting that Dak Prescott seemingly sustained an ankle injury during the second half last week, but he finished the game and did not appear on Monday's injury report. Keep an eye out by Thursday for any significant updates on Prescott's status for the weekend. The Cardinals secondary started with a rough showing in Week 1 against the Lions, but they bounced back with a much better outing against a struggling Colts offense last week. Patrick Peterson did an excellent job shutting down T.Y. Hilton, while Tyrann Mathieu held Kamar Aiken to only a 33% catch rate (3 of 9 targets) out of the slot. Both Tyvon Branch and Antoine Bethea have played well over the top so far this season also, limiting the Colts to only one play of 20 or more yards last week. Cole Beasley will have a tough time out of the slot, while Dez Bryant will likely draw shadow coverage from Patrick Peterson. Cardinals Linebacker Haason Reddick struggled in pass coverage last week allowing a number of catches to tight end Jack Doyle, so look for some upside from Jason Witten if he can find space in the middle of the field as the Cardinals linebackers have not played well in their first two games this season.

Recent Game Summaries
2017 Week 2 vs DEN (5 / 4 / 17 / 0 rec)
Williams had a muted game, limited to short routes and tight coverage. Most of Williams' yardage came on a third down out route in the second half, one of Dallas' few attempts at an extended drive and momentum. Williams is a 'fair weather' option - when Dallas' offense is humming along, Williams is typically above his baseline. In this game, Dallas struggled and Williams mired right along with the rest of Dallas' skill position players.
2017 Week 1 vs NYG (7 / 6 / 68 / 0 rec)
Williams thrived against secondary coverage of the Giants en route to leading the team in receiving yards (68) in Week 1. Williams converted three key third downs, including two wide open receptions. One was a well-blocked wide receiver screen while the other was a clear-out slant for 20+ where yards-after-the-catch was easily attainable. Brice Butler may prove to be a challenger to Williams' snaps this season, but Williams excelled in his role opposite Dez Bryant to open the season.
Latest NewsCowboys | Questionable tag for Terrance Williams (Sat Sep 23, 06:10 PM) - Dallas Cowboys WR Terrance Williams (ankle) is listed as questionable for the team's Week 3 game. Our View: Williams has been limited during the week of practice, but it looks like he'll play on Monday night against the Cardinals. Fantasy owners aren't lined up to start him anyway, and you likely have much better options as Williams is merely a desperation 'what the heck' flex.

Our View: Williams did not practice Friday, and that put his status for Week 3 in question. He's out there on Saturday and is likely to give it a go against the Cardinals on Monday night. Fantasy owners shouldn't be looking to Williams as anything more than a desperation 'what the heck' flex.
