|Williams, the Cowboys’ third-round pick out of Baylor, is a talented player who could have a solid future in Dallas. However, the 6'3”, 205-pound outside receiver is considered a raw prospect and is stuck behind Dez Bryant and Miles Austin on the depth chart, so he isn't expected to contribute much as a rookie. He could earn some looks if the injury-prone Austin fails to remain healthy, but his size likely rules him out as an option in the slot where the competition for playing time isn't as fierce. Williams is a decent prospect in dynasty formats.

Missed last two games with hamstring injury
|Miles Austin practiced for the second straight day and it appears he should be able to play Sunday night against the Redskins after missing two straight games with another hamstring injury.
“I thought he did some good things. He seemed comfortable,” HC Jason Garrett said. “He’d been running well the last couple of days." (DallasCowboys.com)|
FF Today's Take: Rookie Terrance Williams has lit it up in his absence, but will likely return to a third-receiver role if/when Austin is cleared to play. Austin is a back-end WR3 most weeks, but should be in line for a nice day against a porous Washington secondary this weekend.

Cowboys received missed practice with hamstring injury
|Miles Austin hasn’t practiced all week after straining his left hamstring in the third quarter of last Sunday’s win over the St. Louis Rams.
The chances of Austin playing Sunday in San Diego seem very slim at this point. As Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said Friday morning, because of Austin’s history of hamstring issues, the franchise will be cautious when determining if Austin will be active.

FF Today's Take: If Austin doesn't play, rookie Terrance Williams will likely get the start and Austin's absence would likely boost the targets for TE Jason Witten.
