RB Karlos Williams goes unclaimed on waivers

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

No one wants Karlos Williams.

Williams, the talented running back who was cut by the Bills on Saturday, has passed through waivers unclaimed. That means all 31 other teams had the opportunity to pick Williams up for his very affordable salary as a 2015 fifth-round draft pick, and all 31 other teams declined.

That would have seemed shocking not long ago, as Williams has undeniable talent: As a rookie last year, Williams averaged 5.6 yards a carry and scored seven touchdowns.

Fantasy Impact: 

But Williams has a number of off-field concerns: He had character red flags heading into last year’s draft, he reported for offseason work out of shape and overweight this year, and he will be suspended for the first four games of the regular season for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy, the story said. It went on to say if Williams stays out of trouble he may get another opportunity. He's an unrestricted free agent as of now.
