Jameson Williams, WR, Detroit Lions

After playing a career-high snap share with a career-high in targets (seven) in Week 15 against the Denver Broncos, it was once again more about Williams' overall involvement in the Lions' offense (six targets, 58 percent snap share) than his raw numbers (five receptions for 43 yards) in Week 16 against the Minnesota Vikings.

It's not a great matchup for Williams in Week 17 against the Dallas Cowboys, who are a top-10 fantasy defense against wide receivers this year. And while the last two games are promising, Amon-Ra St. Brown is the lead dog on the target tree for Detroit.

But all it takes for Williams to post a useful fantasy outing is a big play, and he's a constant threat for that. And the game on the night before New Year's Eve is lined up to be high-scoring, and as a plug-and-play WR3/WR4 in leagues with 12 or more teams "Jamo" is on the radar.
