Writer's Analysis: Williams scored 7.0 points in the Mavericks' loss to the Kings, ending his streak of double-digit scoring performances at two. It doesn't seem he has reached the consistency and production level necessary to occupy his starting position in the lineup successfully. Although he has been able to show glimpses of what he can do when he locks in with the game script, Williams hasn't appeared to have done enough to solidify the role as his own. His upside is enough to put him in the streaming conversation in most season-long leagues, but his low-floor and modest production could threaten that status. Similarly, it could be challenging to roster him in daily formats with such a wide range of possible outcomes. Williams has a usage rate of 13.8 percent, a plus-minus of 3.6, and is averaging 28.9 minutes, 11.1 points, 3.6 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 0.3 steals, and 0.6 blocks per game while 47.3 percent from the floor and 46.8 percent from beyond the arc.
