Williamson suffered a torn ACL in the second preseason game and will miss the 2019 season

Summary

Williamson fell out of favor with the Titans but emerged as a 3-down force with the Jets in 2018. He excels against the run but can struggle in coverage so it's possible he could be replaced on passing downs. If that happens, Williamson could be headed for a steep reduction in playing time this year so he's a risky fantasy choice and should probably be considered as no more than a LB4 or quality depth option.
