Williams still has some time until he hits a football field in a game, but it could come in December. For fantasy teams already prepared to make a playoff run, it would behoove those managers to consider throwing the rookie on to benches if he is available on your waiver wire. Kalif Raymond, who is essentially operating as the WR2, would revert back into a slot role immediately upon Williams' arrival.
Lions 1st round pick Jameson Williams is not expected to be ready for training camp following ACL surgery following the National Championship game January 10.
"If Williams doesn’t practice at all in training camp, he could be a candidate to go on the physically unable to perform list, or open the season on injured reserve with a designation for return," writes Kyle Meinke of MLive.com. "Either designation would force him to miss at least four games, pushing his Lions debut to at least the Week 5 game in New England. The club is off the following week, so if he doesn’t play in New England, his debut might not occur until Oct. 23 in Dallas."
