Recent Game Summaries
2016 Week 19 vs GB (6 / 4 / 68 / 0 rec)
Williams played the secondary role to Dez Bryant as usual against Green Bay. Williams' route tree featured more intermediate and deep routes than short-range opportunities. Williams dug out a low throw on a slant route for his most notable catch. He did log a horrible drop on a deep out route in the second half of note. Williams now enters free agency coming off his worst statistical season of his four-year career on a low-water-mark 61 targets. Williams will be fortunate to find a number two role like he has in Dallas if he changes teams.
2016 Week 17 vs PHI (5 / 3 / 33 / 1 rec)
Williams was the featured receiver against the Eagles as Dez Bryant and Jason Witten were not key elements with nothing on the line for Dallas. Williams showed instant chemistry with Tony Romo in the quarterback's first game action of the 2016 season. The pair connected on a pump-and-go goal line sideline route for a touchdown, Dallas' highlight play on offense of the game. Romo also found Williams on a deep in-cut pass to convert third-and-long. Beyond the box score, Williams drew a long defensive pass interference penalty.
2016 Week 16 vs DET (4 / 4 / 61 / 0 rec)
It was a low-volume game for Dallas' efficient passing game, but Williams still performed well. Specifically, Williams logged three straight catches on a single third quarter drive. Williams made an outstanding high-point reception on a comeback route and deep corner route contested catch of the trio. Williams saw plenty of single coverage this week with Dez Bryant and Ezekiel Elliott being the focal point of Detroit's defensive game plan and Williams excelled with his opportunities.
2016 Week 15 vs TB (4 / 3 / 30 / 0 rec)
After a breakout game in Week 14, Williams was back to his situational targets against Tampa Bay. Williams' highlight catch came on a low pass, which he scooped off the turf after a comeback route. He also dropped a deep comeback route target.
2016 Week 14 vs NYG (6 / 5 / 76 / 1 rec)
Williams had his best game of the season, finding the end zone for just the second time since Week 4. Williams' lone empty target came on a dropped slant pass. Williams was the lone Dallas receiver to find success down the field against the Giants. Williams set up the defensive back well on a play-action deep crossing route for an easy long touchdown, Dallas' lone score of the game. Williams also contributed a deep comeback route and low grab on an in-breaking route.
2016 Week 13 vs MIN (3 / 2 / 13 / 0 rec)
Williams' role continued to be stunted in Dallas pass game against Minnesota. For the fifth straight game, Williams had three targets or less with minimal impact. Williams saw zero targets in the first half then was stuffed on a slot screen reception. Outside of a sporadic long reception or red zone look, Williams needs a Dallas shootout to see elevated production.
2016 Week 12 vs WAS (2 / 1 / 10 / 1 rec)
Williams, yet again, was a marginal option in terms of volume with just two targets. On his deep sideline target, blanket coverage tipped away a well-thrown Dak Prescott pass. However, Williams made the highlight reception of the game for Dallas on his other target. Coming back to the quarterback on an end zone comeback route, Williams corralled the pass and tapped his toes down in the front corner of the end zone for the touchdown. It was Williams' first touchdown since Week 4 and he has seen just four targets over the last three games.
2016 Week 11 vs BAL (2 / 1 / 11 / 0 rec)
Williams was a shadow against the Ravens on the stat sheet, logging just two targets and an inconsequential first quarter reception. His best contribution came with a long defensive pass interference penalty drawn in the second half. With Lance Dunbar and Gavin Escobar back in the mix as ancillary weapons, Williams' fight for weekly viability continues to be an uphill battle for targets.
2016 Week 10 vs PIT (1 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec)
Williams has been completely off the radar since Dez Bryant returned to the lineup. Williams hit a low point in Week 10 with just a single target. Williams was tackled well short of the first down market on third-and-long as Dallas looked to improve field position for a punt. Outside of Bryant missing games down the stretch, Williams' impact will be sporadic.
2016 Week 9 vs CLE (3 / 2 / 19 / 0 rec)
It was a slow game in Week 9 for Dez Bryant and Terrance Williams on the outside against Cleveland. Williams could not shake a defensive back on a red zone smoke route reception to find the end zone. His other catch was a run-of-the-mill comeback reception. Outside of sporadic deep targets, Williams is a volatile weekly weapon for Dallas' pass game.
2016 Week 8 vs PHI (7 / 2 / 25 / 0 rec)
After a strong previous month of performances, Williams was back to secondary receiver status with Dez Bryant active in Week 8. Williams was not on the same page with Dak Prescott on a red zone back shoulder target. Later, Williams could not dig out a low target on a deep out route. Williams' lone highlight came on a third down crossing route conversion into field goal in the second half.
2016 Week 6 vs GB (5 / 4 / 75 / 0 rec)
Williams' best play against Green Bay came with the defensive back falling down, leaving Williams wide open for a long reception into field goal range before the half. Williams also logged a critical third down drop. Notably, Williams was out-snapped by Brice Butler which becomes impactful when Dez Bryant returns from injury as early as Week 8 after Dallas' upcoming bye.
2016 Week 5 vs CIN (5 / 5 / 70 / 0 rec)
Williams posted another strong game with Dez Bryant out despite low Dallas pass game volume. The Cowboys needed just 24 attempts through the air, but Williams led the team with five targets, converting all into receptions. Williams created easy separation on intermediate routes, including comeback and crossing routes. Williams added a slant reception on third down to ice the game late. Next week against Green Bay projects as a higher volume effort for the Dallas passing attack and Williams if Dez Bryant is still out of the lineup.
2016 Week 4 vs SF (6 / 4 / 44 / 1 rec)
Brice Butler stole the show and Cole Beasley iced the 49ers game with a late reception, but Williams had his second straight strong game for Dallas. With Dez Bryant out of the lineup, both Butler and Williams stepped up their games. Williams made a tough slant reception through contact and a highlight back shoulder touchdown grab, twisting into the end zone. Butler is the big uptick receiver with Dez Bryant out, but Williams will see more opportunities in the meantime as well.
2016 Week 3 vs CHI (4 / 4 / 88 / 0 rec)
Williams had by far his game of 2016 in Week 3 against Chicago. After just four targets in the opening two games combined, Williams saw four - catching them all - this week. Williams worked primarily down the field, his customary role with Cole Beasley and Jason Witten patrolling within 10 yards of the line of scrimmage. Williams converted a contested deep out route of note against tight coverage. On the down side, Williams logged two critical mistakes this week. He dropped a high ball target over the deep middle. Williams also fumbled at the end of his highlight reception - a long catch-and-run post route for 50 yards or more - this week.
2016 Week 2 vs WAS (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Terrance Williams saw zero targets in a lackluster effort against Washington. Despite 65% of the snaps, Williams is a lackluster No.2 outside receiver and Brice Butler is gaining ground on Williams for playing time. Butler is nearing 40% of the snaps and a more overt physical talent to track as the season progresses, especially if Dallas' passing game progresses under Dak Prescott.
2016 Week 1 vs NYG (4 / 3 / 34 / 0 rec)
Williams did not see a target until late in the third quarter against the Giants. Working back to Dak Prescott over the middle, Williams made a quality play on the ball in traffic. Williams left the field following the play and was rotating with Brice Butler as the secondary outside wide receiver to Dez Bryant often in this game. In the final seconds, Williams made a critical error as he turned upfield with 12 seconds remaining for additional yardage instead of heading out of bounds to stop the clock. Time ran out as Dallas finished the game on the edge of field goal range with a one-point loss to a divisional rival.
