Mike Williams has been one of the best rookies in fantasy football this season, so when he misses practice it’s certainly noteworthy. That was the case on Thursday, as he sat out of drills due to a bum knee.
“He’s got a sore knee, has been fighting through it for a couple weeks,” Buccaneers coach Raheem Morris told the St. Petersburg Times. “He’s a tough guy, he goes out and he plays, right now it’s little bit sore, just got to get him to tomorrow, and see what he can do tomorrow. Get him through Saturday, see what he can do Saturday and hopefully get him in the game.”
Williams, who is on pace to finish with better than 1,000 yards, could be a game-time decision to face the Redskins. If he is active, it will be hard to bench the rookie despite the threat of rainy weather at FedEx Field.
In the event that Williams is declared inactive, fellow rookie Arrelious Benn would see a spike in value for owners in deeper leagues.
