Summary

The Jets have invested heavily in their defensive line with four first round picks over the past decade. Two of those picks are no longer with the team, however, and Williams has been a bit of a disappointment thus far. Given that he plays defensive end in a 3-4 front, it's not that surprising that his sack numbers are low (averages fewer than 5/year), but his tackle production and overall impact have also been underwhelming to this point. The change to Gregg Williams at defensive coordinator this year does provide some reason for optimism though and it's likely he'll get more opportunities to make plays and become a viable fantasy option.
