It’s a rare occurrence to hear good news related to the NFL’s gambling policy, but in this case, the former 12th overall pick will be let off the leash after serving just four of the original six weeks of his suspension. The Lions, who are already looking well oiled on offense thanks to a strong game and efficient passing game, will welcome the deep threat with open arms. Williams has has very limited in-game experience in his short career, and there’s little precedent as to just how the Lions will utilize him in the passing game. If their use of first round running back Jahmyr Gibbs is any indicator, we can likely expect two targets per game for Williams behind the likes of Josh Reynolds. All jokes aside, it’s best to temper expectations in his first few weeks of action, but he’s a high-upside bench stash that could appreciate quickly.
