    Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams posted just 27 rushing yards on 11 attempts in the Week 4 game against the Buffalo Bills.

    Huddle Up: With Williams struggling and Aaron Jones piling up 5.9 yards per yards per carry with a score, Williams could continue to see his touches dwindle heading into Week 5 against the Lions. That's not good for his short-term fantasy outlook.

  • Posted: 9/23/2018 8:42pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams rushed five times for 29 yards in Week 3 against the Washington Redskins and he added two grabs for 16 yards on three targets.

    Huddle Up: Williams and Aaron Jones posted 71 rushing yards on just 11 combined carries, so the run game could be in good shape going forward if they can stay healthy. The Packers host the Bills in Week 4.

  • Posted: 9/16/2018 5:28pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams rushed 16 times for 59 yards in Week 2 against the Minnesota Vikings and he added three catches for 12 yards on four targets.

    Huddle Up: Williams dominated the backfield touches in this one, posting 19 total touches to just six for Ty Montgomery. If head coach Mike McCarthy continues to divvy up the touches in this manner it would be huge for Williams' fantasy appeal, but he'll need more yards per carry. Keep treating him as a RB3 or flex fantasy option in Week 3 against the Washington Redskins.

  • Posted: 9/9/2018 9:38pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams carried 15 times for 47 yards in Week 1 versus the Chicago Bears.

    Huddle Up: On the plus side, Williams out-touched backfield mate Ty Montgomery 15-3. However, head coach Mike McCarthy insisted on rotating series with his two healthy backs throughout the game, even after Aaron Rodgers suffered a knee injury. While game script and a stingy defense conspired against Williams in this one, he needed a bigger game in this one to quiet talk of Aaron Jones stealing carries from him once he returns from his suspension. He's no better than a flex play in Week 2 against Minnesota Vikings.

  • Posted: 8/16/2018 6:28pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams (ankle) suffered an ankle injury in the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 16.

    Huddle Up: Williams is part of a three-player competition of the starting running back job, so any time missed would hurt his chances. He likely will be part of a committee and may only be a No. 3 or No. 4 running back in standard leagues.

  • Posted: 6/18/2018 10:25am ET

    Green Bay Packers RBs Ty Montgomery, Jamaal Williams and Aaron Jones will be part of a committee at running back this upcoming season, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. McCarthy said the team will be able to adjust if one of the running backs shows they can be the full-time starter.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation during the preseason to see how each running back is used. Montgomery probably is the best receiver out of the three, but Williams and Jones are also decent receivers. All three will have value in fantasy leagues but none will be more than No. 3 running backs unless one takes over the starting job.

  • Posted: 6/11/2018 1:06pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Ty Montgomery seems to be set for a big role in 2018, according to ESPN.com's Rob Demovsky. Head coach Mike McCarthy said the offense is suited for Montgomery's skill set and the Packers need to take advantage of that. Nevertheless, McCarthy admitted that he will continue to take a committee approach with the backfield with RBs Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams included.

    Huddle Up: Green Bay's backfield will be one of the tougher backfields to figure out this offseason. Each of the three running backs flashed at different points in 2017. They can all bring something to the table, but Jones appears to have the most upside. Either way, none of them should be drafted as higher than an RB2.

  • Posted: 1/23/2018 12:05pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams is focusing on improving his explosiveness this offseason. Williams wants to have quicker feet, more speed and to make sure his knees are up. He added that he'll be working on his lateral movements and speed in order to make sure his knees are up and that his lower body is stronger.

    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.

  • Posted: 1/22/2018 10:34pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams conceded that in his exit interviews with head coach Mike McCarthy and running backs coach Ben Sirmans, 'We were just in agreement that I've got to get my feet quicker and just get a little more speed happening and make sure that my knees are up. So, I'm just going to be working on my lateral movements, speed, make sure I get my knees up, make sure my lower body's a lot stronger.'

    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.

  • Posted: 12/27/2017 2:42pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams is likely to handle a bulk of the workload in Week 17 against the Detroit Lions with RB Aaron Jones (knee) unlikely to play.

    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.

  • Posted: 12/23/2017 9:21pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams rushed 15 times for 58 yards in a 16-0 loss to the Minnesota Vikings in Week 16.

    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.

  • Posted: 12/17/2017 3:28pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams rushed 10 times for 30 yards in the Week 15 game against the Carolina Panthers. He did not have any receptions or targets.

    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

    Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams rushed 15 times for 49 yards and a touchdown in Week 14 against the Cleveland Browns and he added seven catches for 69 yards and a score on seven targets.

    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.

  • Posted: 12/3/2017 4:10pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams rushed 21 times for 113 yards and a touchdown in Week 13 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he added two gabs for 10 yards on three targets.

    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

    Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams is expected to receive most of the work against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 13, even with RB Aaron Jones (knee) expected to play, according to a source.

    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

    Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams views himself as a 'workhorse' because of his downhill style. 'I really just try to be consistent and the way I run the ball, make sure defenders know every time they try to tackle me it's going to be a hard tackle,' Williams said.

    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

    Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams is the type of back who becomes stronger later in games, according to running backs coach Ben Sirmans, and Sirmans said Williams 'deserves' carries even after RB Aaron Jones (ankle) returns.

    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

    Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams rushed 21 times for 66 yards and a touchdown and caught four passes for 69 yards and a touchdown in a 31-28 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 12.

    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

    Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams rushed for 57 yards on 18 carries against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 11. He also caught four passes for 38 yards during the game.

    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

    Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams is likely to see the bulk of the work in the backfield in Week 11 with RB Ty Montgomery (ribs) likely out.

    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

    Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams said he is comfortable being the lead back whenever called upon because he approaches every week with the same work ethic.

    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

    Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams rushed 20 times for 67 yards in Week 10 against the Chicago Bears and he added a seven-yard reception.

    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.
