Huddle Up: Williams came on late in his first professional football campaign. Unfortunately, he'll be competing with fellow sophomore running back Aaron Jones, so his fantasy ceiling isn't as high as it could be. For now, view him as a flex as a better fit in standard leagues.

Huddle Up: Williams flashed some interesting potential in his rookie season, ultimately leading the team in rushing with 556 yards while also adding four touchdowns. However, he needed 153 rush attempts to garner that yardage -- good for just 3.6 yards per carry -- so it won't be an easy path to reclaim the starting job with Ty Montgomery (wrist) and Aaron Jones (knee) returning to full health. Whoever is Green Bay's starting running back going into next year will hold notable value considering Aaron Rodgers will be healthy to begin the campaign.

Huddle Up: Williams should be a decent RB3 or flex fantasy option for leagues deciding their league champion in the final weekend, while Devante Mays might see snaps as his backup.

Huddle Up: Williams continues to serve as the lead back, but his value is capped by the inconsistent play of Brett Hundley and the offense as a whole. He receives enough touches to be used as a flex play, but he will need to find the end zone to creep into RB2 territory.

Huddle Up: Williams was disappointing, but it was to be expected against a stout Carolina rush defense. He faces another tough matchup at home Saturday against the Vikings in Week 16.
Posted: 12/10/2017 4:22pm ET
Huddle Up: Williams had a giant game, leading the way with 22 touches. Meanwhile, Aaron Jones had four runs for minus-2 yards, so it appears Williams is going to be the leading back heading into Week 15 and beyond.

Huddle Up: Williams is likely to see plenty of touches down the stretch with Ty Montgomery (ribs) done for the season and Aaron Jones (knee) just now making his way back from injury. Williams is worth using as an RB3 or flex fantasy option down the stretch.
Posted: 12/2/2017 9:28pm ET
Huddle Up: There is always the chance that Jones catches fire and steals a chunk of the touches, but Williams should at least be a solid flex option in Week 13.
Posted: 12/2/2017 8:01pm ET
Huddle Up: If Aaron Jones is unable to play in Week 13, Williams would be a volume-based RB2 against a Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense that has allowed 10 rushing scores this year.
Posted: 11/30/2017 7:07pm ET
Huddle Up: Jones is questionable for Week 13 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and if he sits, Williams is a potential RB2 against one of the weaker defenses in the NFL. If Jones suits up, both backs could be volatile plays.
Posted: 11/26/2017 9:00pm ET
Huddle Up: Williams has now topped 20 touches in three straight games, and if Ty Montgomery continues to miss time, Williams has RB2 potential against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 13.
Posted: 11/19/2017 1:51pm ET
Huddle Up: Williams received most of the work at running back and could see a similar workload in Week 12 if Ty Montgomery and Aaron Jones remain sidelined. He can be at least a flex option next week.
Posted: 11/17/2017 8:18am ET
Huddle Up: Williams caught 15 passes combined in his junior and senior years at BYU, and he loses some luster in PPR formats. He has the kind of projected volume to be a flex play against a midrange Baltimore Ravens defense.
Posted: 11/16/2017 7:15pm ET
Huddle Up: Williams ended up carrying the ball 20 times last weekend after Ty Montgomery was injured, and with Montgomery looking doubtful for Week 11, Williams should be in line for another heavy workload as the Packers try to protect Brett Hundley. If Montgomery sits, Williams will have RB2 upside against the Baltimore Ravens.
Posted: 11/12/2017 6:59pm ET
Huddle Up: Williams was receiving the bulk of the work in the backfield with both Aaron Jones (knee) and Ty Montgomery (ribs) checking out due to injuries. Jones had a sprained MCL, so it appears he'll be sidelined for weeks. Williams is worth grabbing in all fantasy leagues.
Posted: 10/6/2017 2:14pm ET
Huddle Up: Williams is expected to shoulder a majority of the load on Sunday with Ty Montgomery doubtful to play due to an injury to his ribs. He is a nice streaming option in standard leagues and a solid low-priced option in DFS, as Todd Gurley carved up the Dallas rush defense last weekend.
Posted: 10/5/2017 3:42pm ET
Huddle Up: Williams is on track to play against the Dallas Cowboys and likely would start if Ty Montgomery is declared inactive. He would be a No. 2 running back or a flex option in fantasy leagues if he receives most of the work at running back this week.
Posted: 10/4/2017 3:53pm ET
Huddle Up: It appears Williams is on track to play in Week 5 and could start if Ty Montgomery is not healthy enough to play. Williams could be at least a flex option in most leagues if he starts against the Dallas Cowboys.
Posted: 10/3/2017 4:14pm ET
Huddle Up: Williams might be pushing himself due to opportunity, as the team lost Ty Montgomery to broken ribs. The good news is that an MRI revealed no ligament damage for Williams, so it might be how much pain he can tolerate. If Montgomery and/or Williams are both sidelined in Week 5 it might mean Aaron Jones and Devante Mays draw in for unexpected action.
Posted: 9/28/2017 7:23pm ET
Huddle Up: With Ty Montgomery also injured in the game, Aaron Jones could be the de facto starter going forward. Keep tabs on the Montgomery and Williams and be ready to put a claim in for Jones.
Posted: 9/28/2017 7:16pm ET
Huddle Up: Williams went down a few plays after Ty Montgomery suffered an injury to his ribs, thrusting Aaron Jones into the starting role. Depending on the status of Montgomery and Williams going forward, Jones could become a must-own player to target on the waiver wire.
Posted: 8/5/2017 6:23pm ET
Huddle Up: Montgomery figures to be the lead back, but Williams could provide the thunder to Montgomery's lightning and potentially see some carries around the goal line. Consider him a RB4 candidate.
Posted: 8/2/2017 12:06pm ET
Huddle Up: Pass protection is perhaps Montgomery's biggest weakness, so this is something to keep an eye on moving forward. The most likely scenario for Green Bay this year is Montgomery serving as the lead back and pushing 200 touches, while Williams could serve as the change-of-pace and possibly handle goal-line work. It is still very much a fluid situation, albeit one ripe with plenty of fantasy upside.
Posted: 7/21/2017 9:30pm ET
Huddle Up: Williams could be a nice complement to Ty Montgomery, especially if he earns carries near the goal line. He is worth scooping up in the later rounds.
Posted: 7/20/2017 10:14am ET
Huddle Up: Williams is one of the more promising rookie running backs heading into 2017. Montgomery played well as a running back last year, so Williams will really have to prove himself in order to see significant playing time. Use a late-round pick on the rookie and possibly an earlier selection for those who own Montgomery.
Posted: 6/1/2017 10:08am ET
Huddle Up: Green Bay's starting running back job is Ty Montgomery's to lose, but don't count out Williams in the long haul. Williams has an NFL physique and the determination to succeed at the next level. For those who draft Montgomery, Williams makes sense as a mid- to late-round handcuff.
Posted: 4/29/2017 10:39am ET
Huddle Up: It is believed Williams will compete right away with Don Jackson and Christine Michael for a role in the backfield. Given Williams' size of 6-foot, 212 pounds, he could be the thunder to Ty Montgomery's lightning. Watch Williams during training camp and preseason play for clarity on his fantasy role. He could surprise as a fringe flex choice.
