    Good for TWill! Let's hope he still leads at the end of the season.

    I think we are bringing the kid along to quickly. As a couch coach I know more about this than Garret and Callahan.

    Make the kid earn it!

    Play Harris more!

    TW on his way to very good WR for long time.

    The last one is interesting (to me anyway) because TW reminded me a little of Jordy Nelson coming out: Lightly recruited late bloomers... Tall, long strider types who aren't too shifty... Mostly downfield WRs, neither of which have great timed speed but who on the field make big plays and run away from people.

    Unbelievable. I thought the kid would be good, but I don't think anyone saw this. Making that draft day look better and better.

    Is there a site that shows the progress of NFL rookies? I want to see how Williams is fairing vs all the other wr's that were drafted.

    He was a helluva player at Baylor and I thought he was a steal in Round 3. Still didn't think he'd be playing this well this early though. Happy for the kid. Hope he keeps it up for a loooong time.

    So is Yards per target replacing the old standard, yards per catch?

    No, I think they are two different stats.

    Yards per Target is how many times ball was thrown at a WR, so if a WR was targeted 10 time but he only caught 5 times gaining 50 yards then his YpT would be 5 yards per taget.

    Yards per Catch is yards gained per catch, so in that same scenario as above, his yards per catch would be 10.

    I could be wrong but that's my understanding of those two stats.

    OROY a possibility?

    This kid has turned it around very quickly.

    The yards per reception doesn't surprise me at all, he led the nation in that category last year. Just think, as a rookie, he still doesn't even know what he's doing 75% of the time, imagine what he'll look like this time next year when he gets it.

    24 Receptions
    380 Yards
    Average 15.8
    54.3 yards per game
    3 TDs

    He is ranked 68th for receptions (that includes WR, TE and RBs)
    He is ranked 3rd in receptions among rookies (Tavon Austin is 1st with 29 and DeAndre Hopkins is 2nd with 28)

    He is ranked 41st in Yards (that includes WR, TE and RBs)
    He is ranked 2nd in yards among Rookies (DeAndre Hopkins is 1st with 416)

    He is ranked 25th in average per catch (that includes WR, TE and RBs) I also narrowed this one down to at least 10 catches as there were a bunch of players listed with 1 or two catches that really messed up the rankings...if adding all of those he would be 55th.
    He is ranked 3rd among rookies (1st Kenny Stills 19.8, 2nd Mike brown 18.3). Again this is with at least 10 receptions

    He is ranked 56th in yards per game (that includes WRs, TE and RBs)
    He is ranked 3rd among rookies. (1st Mike Brown 61.3, 2nd Jordan Reed 59.6)

    He is ranked 23rd (tied among many) in receiving TDs
    He is ranked 3rd among rookies. (Joseph Fauria 5 TDs, Kenbrell Thompkins 4TDs)

    If we narrow all of these down per rookies

    It would seem that you could argue DeAndre Hopkins, Mike Brown and our own T.Williams would be in the running for Rookie of the Years if we go by receiving stats (Receptions, yards, ypg, avg and TDs).

    Right, and as he gets more targets (and stays healthy) he'll start looking good in those "traditional" receiving stats too. What the stats I posted say are that he clearly deserves more targets.

    I would think he and Lacey would be the front-runners in the NFC. Both started slow, however, both look to be on pace to go over 1000 yards.

    He doesn't have to lead all rookie WR's for me to be happy with him this season.

    If he continues to perform at this level, and Romo can depend on him and trust him, that will be great.

    The Romo to Williams TD slant pass against the iggles reminded me of Aikman to Irvin, ... great pass, great catch, .. unstoppable play.

    TWill is doing better than Tavon Austin, Deandre Hopkins, and Cordarelle Patterson by far (the first 3 WR drafted).
