Mar 4 - 2:10 PM

Dolphins placed TE Brandon Williams on injured reserve with a broken foot, ending his season.

Williams has tantalizing athleticism, but is frequently injured and barely got on the field in stints with Carolina and Miami. Williams turned 28 in January. He's not worth stashing even in the deepest of Dynasty leagues.

Panthers TE Brandon Williams (groin surgery) has resumed practicing fully.

Williams has been activated from the active/PUP list after undergoing a "minor" groin operation in June. With Kelvin Benjamin out for the year, the Panthers are expected to incorporate more two-tight end sets. 27-year-old Williams is a player to watch to see if he can put any heat on Ed Dickson for snaps.

Panthers TE Brandon Williams (groin surgery) will be limited when training camp opens next week.

Williams underwent a minor procedure in June and is expected back for the second week of camp. It's a note for preseason DFS players to file away. Williams, a former college basketball player and athletic freak, logged a heavy 58 snaps in last year's exhibition opener and produced 3-50-1. Be sure he's healthy before using him this year.

Panthers TE Brandon Williams caught a six-yard pass in Carolina's Week 9 loss to the Saints.

The grab was originally a 12-yard touchdown, but Williams ended up getting ruled down by contact midway through his run. Williams is a high-upside reserve, but has just four total catches this season. His fantasy time doesn't appear to be coming any time soon.

Brandon Williams of the Panthers earned Pro Football Focus' highest grade among tight ends in the first week of preseason.

A former college basketball player, Williams has been an intriguing deep sleeper for awhile, particularly on a Panthers team that wants to utilize two tight ends. The 26-year-old played a whopping 58 snaps in Carolina's preseason opener, drawing elite blocking marks from PFF and producing a 3-50-1 line on six targets in the passing game. He stands 6-foot-3, 248 with 4.56 timed speed.

ESPN Panthers reporter David Newton identified second-year TE Brandon Williams as a player that "stood out" at minicamp and OTAs.

A second-year UDFA out of Oregon, Williams played only 28 snaps his rookie year, but Newton believes his role will expand this season. Williams is a physical freak, standing 6'4/250 with sub-4.6 40 wheels. In order to earn playing time with Greg Olsen in two-tight end sets, Williams only has to overtake underwhelming Ed Dickson. 26-year-old Williams is a super-deep sleeper.

Panthers declared TE Brandon Williams, CB D.J. Moore, CB Josh Norman, S Quintin Mikell, LB Ben Jacobs, DE Frank Alexander, and DT Dwan Edwards inactive for Week 5 against the Cardinals.

Carolina is mostly healthy coming off of its Week 4 bye.
Sun, Oct 6, 2013 02:35:00 PM

Panthers rookie TE Brandon Williams will be sidelined until training camp after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery.

An undrafted free agent and former college basketball player, Williams was more of a practice-squad than 53-man roster candidate to begin with. The knee scope will further decrease Williams' odds of landing a job behind Greg Olsen.
