Williams scored 26 points (9-18 FG, 5-7 3P, 3-3 FT) with four rebounds and three assists in 30 minutes off the bench Friday.
He's been running hot and cold in December, alternating single digit efforts with 17, 26 and 26 point nights, but Williams has still become an indispensable part of the bench in his first season in Toronto. In deep leagues, his ability to rain threes when he's locked in is his primary source of fantasy value, but the combo guard is also averaging a useful 1.2 steals a game.

Williams scored 26 points (7-16 FG, 3-10 3P, 9-10 FT) with three rebounds in 28 minutes off the bench Monday.
He's not quite as red hot as he was at the end of November, but Williams is still capable of going off at a moment's notice. His lack of production in other categories makes him tough to roster in shallower leagues, however.

Williams scored 17 points (5-9 FG, 1-2 3P, 6-6 FT) with five rebounds, two assists and two steals in 26 minutes off the bench during Wednesday's win over the Jazz.
His hot streak has faded, but Williams is still averaging 14 points a night over his last four games and will be relied upon as the Raptors' main source of second unit offense with Greivis Vasquez subbing for the injured DeMar DeRozan in the starting lineup.

Williams came off the bench to score 16 points (5-11 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 4-5 FT) in a season-high 30 minutes Friday against the Mavericks.
Williams saw extra minutes after DeMar DeRozan (groin) left the game in the third quarter. If DeRozan misses any time, it would be a fantasy boon for Williams, who has already seen his role increase in recent weeks.

Williams scored 36 points (9-19 FG, 3-8 3P, 15-15 FT) with four rebounds and three steals in 29 minutes off the bench during Saturday's win over the Cavaliers.
After Cleveland raced out to a 24-6 lead in the first quarter, Williams came into the game and shredded the Cavs' defense to lead the Raptors' comeback. He's now scored 48 points in the last two games, and looks to be completely back to his pre-knee injury form.

Williams scored 22 points (7-14 FG, 5-7 3P, 3-3 FT) with two assists in just 19 minutes off the bench during Friday's shellacking of the Bucks.
Milwaukee left their defense at the hotel, and Williams took full advantage. He's so far matching last year's scoring pace despite playing five less minutes a night, but it would probably take an injury to Kyle Lowry or DeMar DeRozan for Williams to get enough run to have fantasy value in most leagues.

Williams scored 13 points (5-11 FG, 1-3 3P, 2-5 FT) in 16 minutes off the bench Friday.
He's now scored in double-digits in three straight games. Williams isn't providing fantasy owners with much more than points and isn't worth a roster spot in most leagues except as possible insurance against a Kyle Lowry or DeMar DeRozan injury, but the Raptors are more than happy with the instant offense he's supplying to their second unit.

Williams scored 21 points (6-9 FG, 2-3 3P, 7-7 FT) with three rebounds and three assists in 24 minutes off the bench Monday.
Kyle Lowry got the night off, so Williams was able to get some run at the point as well as his more comfortable off guard position. He looks like he's all the way back from his February 2013 knee surgery, getting to the rim with ease, and Williams should prove to be a big addition to the Raptors' bench this season.
