Baltimore Ravens TE Maxx Williams had two catches for 48 yards, including a 40-yard grab, against the Miami Dolphins on Thursday, Aug. 17. It was the best that Williams has looked all summer, according to ESPN's Jamison Hensley.
Huddle Up: Playing tight end for the Ravens has been the 2017 equivalent of drumming for Spinal Tap, and while Nick Boyle has gotten most of the sleeper buzz during the preseason, don't completely dismiss Williams. If he can stay healthy (and that's a big 'if'), Williams could be someone worth keeping an eye on.

Baltimore Ravens TE Maxx Williams said he is more comfortable entering his second season because he knows what to expect each day. Williams said he improved his strength this offseason but is not sure how much weight he gained. He is not sure what his role will be in 2016 because things can change before the start of the season.
Huddle Up: The 2015 second-round pick finished with 32 catches for 268 yards and a TD as a rookie, and while more is expected out of him as a sophomore, Baltimore has added free-agent Benjamin Watson and has Crockett Gillmore and, possibly, Dennis Pitta returning to deeply cloud the position outlook.

Baltimore Ravens TE Maxx Williams was inconsistent during offseason workouts and expectations for the rookie should be kept in check, in the opinion of The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec.
Huddle Up: There are high expectations for the second-round pick, but long-time fantasy GMs should be used to rookie TE struggles by now as even such luminaries as Jimmy Graham (31-356-5), Greg Olsen (39-391-2) and Vernon Davis (20-265-3) failed to make much of an impact in their debut seasons.

Baltimore Ravens TE Maxx Williams is expected to make an impact right away on third down and in the red zone, according to general manager Ozzie Newsome.
Huddle Up: It seems Newsome knows a thing or two about TE play as the Ravens have had a line of standouts at the position from Shannon Sharpe to Todd Heap to Dennis Pitta. It may take a year or two to acclimated to the next level, but don't be surprised if Williams is next on that list.
