Dallas running game hurting Terrance Williams' production

ESPN - [Full Article]

Cowboys beat writer Todd Archer was asked about the lack of production from Terrance Williams: It's not that Terrance Williams has done anything wrong. Some of it is a product of how the Cowboys played last Sunday against the Tennessee Titans. They ran it 43 times in 76 snaps. When you have that dominant of a running game, there will be only so many targets to go around in the passing game. And when you're playing opposite Dez Bryant, that will also be a factor in the limited targets. In two games, Williams has been targeted eight times, with four catches. I wouldn't panic about his long-term production. It will be there, but I don't know if you'll see him with huge numbers as long as the Cowboys are running the ball as well as they are. I had him pegged in for about a 60-65 catch season. There's plenty of time to hit that number.

Fantasy Impact: 

We still like Williams' skill set, and he was very productive last year in a starter's role. But not only are the Cowboys going run-heavy, Tony Romo isn't pushing the ball down the field as much as in years past. Williams is still the #35 WR in standard formats, so he shouldn't hit the waiver wire.
