WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Preston Williams | Dolphins WR

The Dolphins are re-signing Preston Williams.

Williams has unfortunately had trouble staying on the field through his first three NFL seasons, playing in just eight games each year. However, the former undrafted receiver will turn just 25 years old later this month. Williams will look to grow into a role in Mike McDaniel's offense this season.

Preston Williams has been ruled out for Week 8.

Williams wasn’t listed on the injury report this week, but he isn’t traveling with the team for tomorrow’s game against the Bills and has been ruled out. Perhaps Williams is involved in trade discussions and will be on the move ahead of next week’s deadline.

Preston Williams (foot) is being activated off the PUP list.

Williams is ready to practice for the Dolphins after recovering from last year's season-ending foot injury. While the Dolphins are now very deep at receiver, Will Fuller and DeVante Parker have remained out of practice, and Williams could quickly get a good number of reps. The big receiver is someone to keep an eye on in dynasty formats more so than in redraft leagues.

The Dolphins are placing Preston Williams (foot) on injured reserve.

Williams was carted to the locker room last week after scoring a touchdown, and he will miss at least the next three games for Miami. Considering how tricky foot injuries can be (for wideouts in particular), it wouldn't be a surprise if he missed time beyond that. The Dolphins will likely lean more on tight end Mike Gesicki in the coming weeks.

Preston Williams leaves game with foot injury.

Williams was apparently injured on his acrobatic touchdown reception, and now he unfortunately is getting carted to the locker room with his cleats off. Before leaving, Williams was having a strong afternoon with four receptions for 60 yards and a touchdown.

Preston Williams (knee) has been cleared for football activities.

This is great news for Williams after he tore his ACL last November. Williams is a big, talented receiver that likely went undrafted last year due to character concerns; but he showed he can produce in limited action as a rookie. It's important that Williams has been cleared for camp, especially as the Dolphins implement a new offense under coordinator Chan Gailey and potentially have a new quarterback under center in Tua Tagovailoa.

Preston Williams (knee) is out for the season.

This is really unfortunate for Williams, who worked his way from an undrafted rookie from Colorado State into a reliable option for the Dolphins on the outside. Williams' season ends with 32 receptions for 428 yards and three touchdowns in eight games, and he's certainly someone to keep an eye on moving forward. It wasn't ability that caused the six-foot-five receiver to go undrafted this year, as there were off-field concerns that caused him to not get selected in the NFL draft. Williams has the on-field ability to develop into Miami's top weapon on offense.

Preston Williams (knee) is officially questionable to return for the Dolphins.

Williams was carted off the field, so it is very unlikely that he returns to the fourth quarter of today's game. Before leaving, the rookie receiver had five receptions for 72 yards and two touchdowns in what could be Miami's first win with the team up by nine with under seven minutes remaining. More information on Williams' status should become available in the next 24-48 hours.

Preston Williams (wrist) has returned for the Dolphins.

Williams is back and will look to resume his awesome day with two touchdowns already against the Jets.

Preston Williams (wrist) is questionable to return for the Dolphins.

Williams is having a fantastic afternoon for Miami, with two touchdowns in the first half, so hopefully he's able to return soon. We'll update ou as more information becomes available.

The Dolphins are signing undrafted wide receiver Preston Williams, according to Ian Rapoport.

A talented receiver out of Colorado State, Williams was likely undrafted due to character concerns that led to him not being invited to the NFL Scouting Combine. With the rebuilding Dolphins, though, he will have a chance to make the most of his opportunity by staying out of trouble and showing his upside on a team that should have wide-open competitions across the board. Williams should be on the radar for dynasty owners that are willing to take on the risk.
