Roy Williams, WR, Dallas Cowboys

Pros: When Williams puts his mind and talents toward playing, he does very well as shown by his 82-reception, 1,310-yard and seven-touchdown season in 2006. Team owner Jerry Jones hates to look like a fool, so Williams still has a longer leash than his play has shown he deserves. The Cowboys took talented Dez Bryant in the first round, so Williams realizes he has to raise his game and fight for his job. In turn, he bulked up, became stronger and focused on decreasing his drops in the offseason. Even though he caught just 38 balls a year ago, he scored seven touchdowns, with five of them coming in the second half of the season once Miles Austin emerged and put Williams in single coverage.

Cons: Unfortunately, Williams just doesn't show up - often. He drops too many balls. The addition of Bryant could ultimately lead to Williams being demoted and/or outright benched if he doesn't come out swinging.

Fantasy tip: We don't expect Williams to go down without a fight, which should yield better production than he managed a year ago. On average, he is being taken at the tail end of fantasy football drafts this year ... and he isn't even a lock to be drafted in shallow leagues. Everyone has forgotten about him (mostly intentionally and deserved), but he can still provide depth to your fantasy squad as a No. 4 or No. 5 fantasy option.
