Marcus Williams Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Saints DE Trey Hendrickson (neck) is inactive for today's game against the Vikings. That could leave more snaps available for DE Marcus Davenport, who ramped up to a season high in total snaps last week against the Chiefs. Davenport carries sneaky upside against a Minnesota offense that allowed 13 sacks over the past 3 games. But there's also risk to a guy with just 1.5 sacks for the season and 2 total QB hits since Week 8. New Orleans will also miss FS Marcus Williams, which improves the passing matchup for the Vikings.

The Saints have ruled S Vonn Bell (knee), S Marcus Williams (groin) and CB Eli Apple (ankle) out for Sunday's game against the Panthers. Rookie Chauncey Gardner-Johnson will get another start in Bell's place. Janoris Jenkins figures to start in Apple's place.

The Saints spent a 2nd-round pick on Utah S Marcus Williams. He's probably not headed for an immediate starting role but should fight for one as soon as 2018. Williams grabbed 5 INTs in each of his final 2 college seasons and looks like more of a big-play league option than he is for IDP formats that lean more heavily on tackles.
