Duke Williams
28-Year-Old Wide ReceiverWR
2020 Fantasy Outlook
There are no fewer than nine wide receivers with legitimate opportunities at a roster spot in Buffalo. The 6-foot-3 former five-star recruit only ran a 4.72 40-yard dash at the 2016 Combine, dashing his draft hopes in the process. So he went north to the CFL. He had a solid first year in 2017, then actually led the CFL in receiving yards in 2018 with 1,579. In 2019, he was signed by the Bills, placed on the practice squad, elevated to the main roster, and was just starting to show what he could do when a minor shoulder injury slowed him down. It looked like the season would wind down for Duke, but he showed true grit, returning for Week 17 and a whopping 12 targets and 108 yards receiving. And it wasn't a fluke as he was targeted 10 times in the Bills' playoff game at Houston. Intriguing, if he can beat out a host of other guys for one of the team's final receiving spots.

Leads team in targets
WRBuffalo Bills
January 4, 2020
Williams had four catches (10 targets) for 49 yards in Saturday's wild-card loss to the Texans.
ANALYSIS
Williams went from being a healthy scratch for most of the season to leading the Bills with 22 targets over its last two contests. Last week's pronounced role came in a meaningless game where plenty of starters rested, but the team kept him heavily involved with the season on the line. The undrafted rookie displayed good athleticism, and he is the only Buffalo wideout checking in above six feet tall (6-foot-3, 225 pounds). Veterans John Brown and Cole Beasley are entrenched as the team's outside and slot options, but Williams has put himself in position to compete for the other outside wideout role during training camp next season.
