Williams (calf) has meetings lined up with six teams at the 2015 Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.Because he was released during the 2014 season, Williams can sign with a team before free agency begins in March. Of course, he hasn't exactly made a good impression the past two years, and he's never shown an ability to get consistent separation. What he does offer is a combination of size and ball skills that can make him a useful weapon in the red zone. Regardless of where he ultimately signs, Williams will likely have to compete for a roster spot.

Williams (calf) has been released by the Bills, ESPN.com reports.

Per the report -- Williams, who had been on the Bills' IR list -- is past his calf injury and is now free to sign with another team. That said, the chances of the wideout making a fantasy splash before next season don't appear great. In nine games for Buffalo this season, Williams caught eight passes for 142 yards and a touchdown.

Williams (calf), who was placed on the waived/injured list Monday, went unclaimed and will now spend the rest of the season on Buffalo's IR list.

In case you're in a 36-team league and were hoping the red-zone threat ended up somewhere for the last three weeks of the season, that's not going to happen. Williams' time with the Bills is probably over too, other than this paper move.

The Bills have placed Williams (calf) on the waived/injured list.

The Bills acquired Williams from Tampa Bay in April for a sixth-rounder and even though it was probably worth the risk to get such a red-zone talent for an offense that badly needed one, Williams' performance gets a solid grade of F based on some attitude issues earlier in the season and a complete lack of production. Coach Doug Marrone goes back with Williams during the receiver's brief time at Syracuse, but we imagine there will not be a third time.

Williams (calf) is out for this week's game in Denver.

Williams will stick with an unsightly 8/142/1 line on the season, 80 of which came on one play. His acquisition by the Bills, which came with some promise due to his red-zone skills, has been a gross disappointment.

Williams (calf) is not participating in Friday's practice.

This will probably make the choice to use Marquise Goodwin over Williams an easy one for coach Doug Marrone come Sunday.

Williams (calf) was limited in practice Thursday, the Bills' official site reports.

Williams hasn't caught a pass since Week 5, so he's off the fantasy radar in any case, despite the name recognition factor.

Williams is listed as inactive for Sunday's contest against the Browns.

Williams hasn't seen the field for more than 10 total snaps since Week 8, and remains without a reception since Week 5. Sammy Watkins, Robert Woods and Chris Hogan are set to lead the Bills' passing game, and with Williams inactive, Marquise Goodwin may see more work on offense as well.

Williams is listed as active for Monday's game against the Jets.

If you're in such a bind that you need to count on the disappointing Williams to salvage your fantasy week, we feel almost as sorry for you as we do for the good people of Buffalo that suffered through 5-6 feet of snow in the last week. As for Williams, he carries an ugly 8/142/1 line into the game and will work behind Sammy Watkins, Robert Woods, and Chris Hogan, though we'll at least mention the team has been so bad in the red zone he may see a look or two there before the night is through.

Williams is active for Thursday's game against the Dolphins.

He's been the forgotten man in Buffalo this season, but with Marquise Goodwin inactive for this one, Williams will serve as the fourth receiver. We'll see if the Bills turn to the tall receiver in the red zone once or twice, given the team's struggles in that area of the field. Williams is far from a reliable fantasy option, however.
