Dolphins WR Preston Williams (knee) has been "cleared for football activity," HC Brian Flores said Monday. That's a pleasant surprise after Williams tore his ACL on November 3. He's been running and rehabbing, per Flores, and is now focusing on learning new OC Chan Gailey's offense. Williams tallied a 32-428-3 line on 60 targets in 8 games last year, ranking 36th among WRs in PPR points over that span. Miami made no significant WR additions this offseason, so Williams should open the campaign in 2-WR sets alongside DeVante Parker.

The Dolphins have placed WR Preston Williams on IR with his foot injury. That means he'll miss at least the next 3 games -- and it sounds like it might be longer than that. HC Brian Flores admitted that the injury is "more significant than we thought." Williams is droppable in most fantasy leagues. His absence leaves DeVante Parker as Miami's clear #1 WR, with Jakeem Grant and Mack Hollins behind him on the depth chart. TE Mike Gesicki could also see a volume boost with Williams sidelined.

Dolphins WR Preston Williams suffered a foot injury on his TD catch in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game vs. Arizona. He was carted back to the locker room and is officially questionable to return. We'll pass along an update when we get one.

Dolphins WR Preston Williams (knee) is "on schedule" for Week 1, according to The Miami Herald's Barry Jackson. Williams is rehabbing his November torn ACL. He was enjoying an excellent rookie campaign before going down, compiling a 32-428-3 line in 8 games. Williams sat 36th among WRs in PPR points at that time. Miami didn't make any significant additions to its WR corps this offseason, which would appear to be a vote of confidence in Williams. If healthy, he should open the 2020 campaign as a starter alongside DeVante Parker.

The Dolphins are comfortable with their current WR corps heading into the 2020 campaign, according to the Miami Herald's Barry Jackson. DeVante Parker and Preston Williams were both big surprises this past year. Parker broke out for a 72-1,202-9 line and signed a big 4-year extension in December. Williams was pacing toward an 856-yard, 6-TD rookie season before tearing his ACL in November. He's tentatively expected to be ready for Week 1. Parker and Williams figure to open 2020 as Miami's top 2 WRs, with Allen Hurns, Albert Wilson, Jakeem Grant and Isaiah Ford providing depth.

Dolphins HC Brian Flores announced Monday that WR Preston Williams will miss the rest of the season with the knee injury he suffered in Sunday's win over the Jets. No word yet on Williams' exact injury or whether it'll impact his availability for the start of the 2020 campaign. It's the end of a promising rookie season that saw Williams dominate in preseason action and then post a 32-428-3 line in 8 regular season games. He leaves behind 7.5 targets per game. Allen Hurns is the best bet to step into Williams' spot but isn't worth rostering in fantasy right now. WR DeVante Parker and TE Mike Gesicki should get volume boosts with Williams out.

Update: ESPN's Cameron Wolfe reports that it's an ACL tear for Williams. We'll see if he can get back to full strength for the start of next season.
