|Fourth year wideout Terrance Williams will enter his contract year trying to make up for what has been a rather mediocre three seasons in the league. While he did score 8 touchdowns on only 37 catches as a sophomore he failed to build on his 2014 campaign and finished with a disappointing 52-840-3 statline in 2015. In fairness, all of the Cowboy pass catchers struggled without Tony Romo on the field, so this will be a make or break year for the former Baylor Bear. Williams will have the benefit of not being the focus of opposing defenses with Bryant lined up across from him and with tight end Jason Witten still commanding targets, but the flip side is the two veterans will be Tony Romo’s preferred options almost every time he drops back. With an offense expected to be built on the running game, Williams’ targets may not be enough to warrant anything more than a bye week filler in fantasy circles. Still, the 6’2” 200 pound wideout has flashed some big play ability in the past and could gain more of Romo’s trust if Bryant misses any time and/or if Witten continues to decline. It’s hard to have much confidence in Williams fantasy value and the risk of another Romo injury makes the risk exceed any potential reward.
|Dez Bryant likely out at least one more week|
Missed Week 4 with knee injury

FFToday's Take: Outside of a hiccup against the Broncos in Week 3, the Bengals' defense is usually very tough on receivers, so Bryant owners shouldn't have trouble replacing the production they may have otherwise gotten from him at less than 100 percent. Cole Beasley should push for 10 targets, while Brice Butler and Terrance Williams are serviceable - if low-end WR3 - options.
