Bengals rookie S Shawn Williams sits behind George Iloka on the depth chart but impressed with his work Saturday night.  While Iloka sat out with a wrist injury, Williams tallied 10 tackles, double what anyone else on the team produced.  Williams rotated in with Taylor Mays -- who started -- early, but took nearly all the snaps from the mid-1st quarter on.  The team website reports that Williams has also impressed in practice recently, including INTs on consecutive days.  Iloka will reportedly return soon with some sort of brace on his wrist.  Don't be surprised if Williams pushes him for the job next to Reggie Nelson, though.  If Williams gets into the lineup, he'll carry intriguing IDP upside.

Consider the risk-reward as you decide whether to include Williams in your IDP lineup.

Bengals S Shawn Williams (thigh) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens. He missed practice Wednesday and Thursday before returning for a limited Friday workout.

Bengals S Shawn Williams (concussion) is active for tonight's game against the Chiefs. He's not a strong IDP candidate and doesn't move the needle for the team D in 1 of the league's worst matchups for team-D scoring.
