Green Bay Packers
2019 Fantasy Outlook
The Packers selected Williams in the sixth round of April's draft, and he is the favorite to open the season as the team's third running back behind Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams. The rookie Williams was the primary running back for just one season at Notre Dame, but he averaged an impressive 6.4 yards per carry over 257 collegiate attempts. Off-the-field issues and a brief track record pushed Williams down draft boards, but his downhill running style makes him an intriguing prospect in new coach Matt LaFleur's offense.

Plays sparingly in rookie season
RBGreen Bay Packers
January 21, 2020
Williams appeared in four games during his rookie season and accumulated 11 yards on five carries.
ANALYSIS
Williams spent the entire season on the Packers' 53-man roster, but he was activated only four times and played sparingly in those instances. The Packers clearly see some potential in Williams, but they did not invest more than a sixth-round pick in him, so he will presumably need to earn a roster spot in training camp.
