With the expected return of Mario Manningham this week, Williams is going to have his role in the offense greatly reduced this week. He will continue to work as the primary return man for the team on punts and kickoffs, but if your league doesn't score points for return yards, he is not even worthy of a roster spot.
Williams had a golden opportunity to take his game to the next level this season with the injury to Michael Crabtree, but failed in his attempt to become a primary receiving target for Colin Kaepernick. It wasn't exactly all his fault as he saw very few targets, but he also didn't make some of the catches he should have made. Regardless, his role is now greatly diminished.
