Williams made a 22 yard catch after starting the play lined up at guard. The alignment allowed him a free release and Williams made a physical run after the catch for additional yards.
2017 Week 16 vs IND (3 / 2 / 6 / 1 rec)
Williams scored on a reception as a fullback and he had another short reception, but looked sluggish after the catch and appears to have lost a step that he's not getting back.
2015 Week 3 vs CIN (7 / 3 / 44 / 0 rec)
Maxx Williams saw a bigger role and more targets than in previous games. His first target fell short at his feet on the Ravens second possession, and he saw an uptick in snaps after Crocket Gillmore and Nick Boyle were injured. Williams caught a pass running a curl route and turned upfield for 11 yards but had it erased by an offensive holding penalty. Williams made his first catch that counted past the midway point in the 4th quarter. He ran down the seam aligned as an inline tight end and found a soft spot in the Bengals zone picking up 27 yards. Williams picked up another reception on the drive releasing in to the flat and picking up 9 as he lowered his shoulder to finish the play. Williams caught a 7 yard curl route to open the Ravens final possession. Williams was the target of Flacco's final desperation heave that fell short of its target forcing Williams to make a diving attempt. Williams should continue to see more targets as he gains Flacco's trust or if Gillmore misses time with his injury.
2015 Week 4 vs PIT (4 / 2 / 17 / 0 rec)
Maxx Williams saw his first target on the Ravens second possession. Williams found a soft spot over the middle and snatched the pass from between two defenders gaining 10 yards. Williams showed good awareness as he stretched for and picked up the needed yardage on a quick out route. Williams is not yet someone the Ravens scheme to get the ball.
2015 Week 14 vs SEA (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Even with Crockett Gilmore missing this game (back) and Nick Boyle's suspension rookie Maxx Williams did not register a catch in Baltimore's Week 14 loss to the Seahawks. It's troubling to see Williams not take advantage of a great opportunity in Baltimore with how many injuries they currently have.
2015 Week 15 vs KC (6 / 5 / 31 / 0 rec)
Maxx Williams received the start in Week 15 and hauled in five of his six targets for 31 yards with a long reception of 13 yards. Facing first and ten from the Chiefs 29-yard line with a little under 5 minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, Williams received a short right pass from Jimmy Clausen out of the shotgun formation and extended it for a 13-yard gain before being pushed out of bonds. We can expect the rookie to continue receiving targets over the last two games of the season.
2015 Week 16 vs PIT (5 / 2 / 16 / 0 rec)
Williams had 2 receptions on 5 targets for 16 yards. Mid 1st quarter on a 3rd and 5, Williams ran a curl-route for a 7 yard first down reception. Early 2nd quarter, Williams ran a curl-route for a 9 yard reception.
2015 Week 17 vs CIN (10 / 6 / 53 / 0 rec)
Maxx Williams played his best game as a Raven against the Bengals. On his first reception Williams reached back and made a nice grab on a crossing route for a 15 yard gain. Williams made 3 catches in quick succession. The first was a 3rd down conversion against tight coverage for 12 yards. The second was an impressive one handed catch he pinned on his shoulder with a linebacker draped all over him. The third was a nice curl route to convert a 3rd down and 8. Maxx Williams got away with a push off and picked up 10 yards against Vontaze Burfict. Williams made a diving attempt at a low pass from Mallett that would have gone for 21 yards but the call was reversed upon review. Williams then dropped a slant on 4th and 2 a few plays later. Williams was held out of his break on what would have been a 5 yard score.
