Wide Receiver

WR | Roy Williams | Dallas Cowboys | Fantasy
Updating a previous item, Tim MacMahon, of ESPNDallas.com, reports Dallas Cowboys WR Roy Williams' starting job appears to be secure for the 2010 season. Head coach Wade Phillips had previously said that Williams would have to compete for the starting job along with WRs Kevin Ogletree and Patrick Crayton. Owner and general manager Jerry Jones said Sunday, Feb. 28, he could not envision a scenario in which a healthy Williams does not start for the Cowboys next season. "A big no," Jones said. "I think you could look for him to have the kind of year we expected him to have last year. I'm optimistic about Roy Williams. We've got to do some things to help Roy, to help his game. We've got to do some things with the way we get him the ball to enhance his game. We're going to do that."

WR | Maurice Stovall | Tampa Bay Buccaneers | Free Agency News
The Tampa Tribune reports the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have given impending restricted free-agent WR Maurice Stovall the lowest tender. The tender carries a $1.176 million salary for 2010, and the Buccaneers would receive a third-round draft pick as compensation if another team signs Stovall.

WR | Laurent Robinson | St. Louis Rams | Injury News, Fantasy
St. Louis Rams vice president of personnel Bill Devaney said WR Laurent Robinson (leg, ankle) is ready to return from last year's leg and ankle injuries. "We're counting on him a lot," Devaney said. Robinson had 13 receptions for 167 yards and one touchdown in three games with the team last year before being placed on season-ending Injured Reserve.
