Summary

As the Bengals third round pick in 2013, it took Williams a while to blossom. He showed flashes of strong play early in his career but injuries and inconsistency held him back. In 2018 it all came together. Williams was healthy for the entire season and emerged as one of the league's premier playmakers at strong safety. At 6'0" and 212 pounds, there has never been a question about his physicality. In fact that has contributed to his injury struggles in the past. He is an intimidating hitter over the middle and in run support. The pleasant surprise last season was his big play production. Williams accounted for six takeaways (five on interceptions), a sack, 10 passes defended and a score. All while leading the team in tackles as well. Williams may be hard pressed to repeat the big play production but the lack of a stud at linebacker point to plenty of continued tackle opportunity. Fantasy managers should target Williams as a strong DB2 candidate. (May 9)
