While signings and trades involving Le’Veon Bell, Odell Beckham, and Antonio Brown have reshaped the fantasy landscape, all three players will remain megastars. In free agency, the moves that make the biggest difference for fantasy owners are often the little ones, tiny shifts in the tectonic plates that lead to earthquakes down the line. Damien Williams entered the NFL after a down final season at Oklahoma, but there wasn’t much question about his athleticism. After he ran a 4.45 forty at 222 pounds to go with a 34-reception season the previous year for the Sooners, the Fantasy Douche picked him as a player to watch. And watch him, we did, although patience was required through four tedious seasons with Miami. Williams caught 20-plus passes each year but never even carried 50 times. Despite a frequently barren depth chart ahead of him, the Dolphins always found an excuse to go a different direction.
