Williams was great in the minors with San Fran a few years ago. Injuries, suspensions, etc. have hindered his development through the Giants organization, Cubs organization and Athletics organization. On the Nationals he is pretty much guranteed a rotation spot and at only age 25, he still may have something left in the tank.

Not worth a look in 10, 12 or most 14 team leagues, but in 16, 18, 20 and larger leagues he could be worth a last round flier.

Too many questions about his makeup. I'll pass.

I could see Williams having success but I doubt his run support.

I will resist the urge to make a joke comparing the title of this thread to Williams weight.

No one will draft him, and if he shows some promise, all of us will go grab him as a FA. Or if somebody does draft him in the last round, they'll get impatient and Williams will be the first player that they drop for the hottest FA.


it's always good to drop names out there.

I actually had the same thought last year and drafted him in the last round or so.......needless to say I'm not going to do that again.
