Roy Williams WR CHI Dec 26 '11
Roy Williams caught a season-high six passes for 81 yards in Chicago's Week 16 loss to the Packers.
Don't be fooled by Williams' stat line. Chicago's stiff-bodied "No. 1 receiver" alligator armed two more potential catches, and tacked on essentially no yardage after the catch. As has been the case all season, the one-time acrobatic leaper displayed startlingly little athleticism. Williams will be a hindrance to the Bears' passing game if he's re-signed for 2012.

Roy Williams caught two passes for 22 yards in Week 14.
An improvement on Week 13, where Williams was held without a catch against the Chiefs. Amazingly, Williams was actually able to make a catch in traffic today, but was otherwise his typically invisible self. Already valueless under Jay Cutler, Williams couldn't be less fantasy relevant with Caleb Hanie starting for the Bears.

Roy Williams caught five passes for 62 yards against the Chargers in Week 11.
Williams and Jay Cutler connected for first downs on three straight plays on a third-quarter scoring drive. His eight targets and five receptions are both season highs, so don't expect a repeat at Oakland in Week 12.

Roy Williams started in Week 10, but was held without a catch.
He was targeted just once, appearing to play in a rotational role. It didn't help Williams' chances of producing a big fantasy game, though, that the Bears threw just 20 passes all day -- one from running back Matt Forte -- after jumping out to a huge early lead. Williams remains mostly off the fantasy radar. At the very best, he's a WR5. The Bears face the Chargers next.

Roy Williams caught three balls for 46 yards in the Bears' Week 10 win over the Eagles.
He almost missed touching the ball with his hands entirely when Jay Cutler threw a perfect deep ball to him, though he did have a defender near him to muddle his vision. Still, it's not a shocking development, but Mike Martz is committed to him no matter how much better the other wideouts look. He now has at least three catches and 46 yards in his last three games.

CSN John "Moon" Mullin believes Roy Williams won't lose his starting job "for awhile now" after regaining it in Week 6.
Johnny Knox is a superior receiver, but the Bears are infatuated with Williams' size. Knox no longer has fantasy value as more than a WR5 roster stash. Williams looked as good as he has all season, but managed just three catches for 50 yards. He's not a weekly fantasy option.

Roy Williams started Sunday's Week 6 win over the Vikings, and finished with three grabs for 50 yards.
Maybe his groin injury has finally passed. He looked as good as he has all year, but that's not saying a whole lot. If he can hang onto the starting job it's possible that he can make the tiniest bit of noise, but we're not expecting much, if any fantasy-worthy production from him.

Roy Williams claims he's only at "80-percent something" in terms of the health of his legs after an early-year groin injury.
"It's getting there. It's about 80-something percent," he said. "Stiffened up just a little bit [Sunday]. But it's getting better." Williams has been demoted out of the starting lineup for Johnny Knox, who leads all Bears wideouts in catches (12) and yards (237). Williams is safe to give up on in fantasy leagues.
