2015 Outlook: Gamble (high risk)

Last updated on Jun-21-2015 by Shawn Childs

This 2011 second-round pick has been a bust due to injuries. He lost his rookie season to a torn patellar tendon. In 2012, Ryan gained only 164 yards on 58 carries (2.8 YPC) before suffering a season-ending shoulder injury. Williams spent last season on the Cowboys' practice squad, and he is currently dealing with a wonky knee. During his 2009 freshman season at Virginia Tech, Ryan rushed for 1,655 yards on 293 carries with 21 TDs. His sophomore season was cut short due to injury as well. I'm sure Williams has talent, but his lack of playing time and injury risk lead me to believe his ship has sailed. Williams will need a couple of injuries to occur in front of him in order to have Fantasy value, and he still may not offer upside.

Latest Update

Jul-29-15 Cowboys RB Ryan Williams place on I.R.

The Cowboys put Ryan Williams on I.R. today after he cleared waivers. Williams has never been the same since suffering a devastating patellar injury. Dallas filled his roster spot with Gus Johnson. Odds are Williams will never see a carry in a Cowboys uniform. He hasn't received a single touch since 2012 thanks to his bulky knee.

Fantasy Analysis:

Williams was expected to play a role in Dallas this season but that is no longer the case. His knee just can't hold up anymore. The injury is very similar to one Victor Cruz suffered last season. Don't expect a whole lot out of Gus Johnson either. The Cowboys could add another back before the season starts, however, it's looking like it's going to be the Joseph Randle show. At least for the time being.
