The Cardinals are a team that are in rebuild mode and that means it gives a lot of players plenty of opportunity to make an impact this season. Now the player that might be a deep sleeper to focus on from this team is Chad Williams and I know they drafted Captain Kirk this year but that doesn’t mean Williams won’t get a chance to make an impact.
Williams has a chance to be one of the top 3 WRs on this offense and that might not sound very appealing but he could be a valuable piece of this offense. Everyone seems to forget that Williams was a 3rd round pick offers great speed, size, and great hands. They biggest problem with him was his ability to run routes and that seems to have changed this year and has made great improvements in that area.
Either way Willams should be the starting WR on the outside considering both Fitz and Kirk are both slot WRs primary this gives Williams a great chance to carve out a nice role on this offense along with the fact that DJ will be fully healthy this year and teams will be zeroed in on him will open this up for these WRs. Willams coming out for the draft last year showed well in the senior bowl and checks every physical measurable now its all about him taking advantage of his opportunity that he has with the cardinals.
I am very excited about Williams making a major impact this year given that fact that he is more comfortable with the NFL and the great opportunity that is in front of him. Now at the moment he might be a better Dynasty stash than a redraft player but make sure you keep an eye out for Williams throughout the year because the sky is the limit for him this year.
