RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Williams spent most of last year on the Cardinals' practice squad, but after Andre Ellington and Chris Johnson went down with injuries in Week 12, he was elevated to the 53-man roster for the remainder of the season. Given the rock 27 times, Williams racked up 142 yards and one touchdown. He also returned eight kickoffs for a total of 126 yards. In addition to Ellington and Chris Johnson, David Johnson is ahead of him on the depth chart and, more importantly, are all healthy heading into the new season, meaning Williams will serve as emergency depth for the Cardinals.

2015

Mined from the scrap heap at the midpoint of the 2014 season due to numerous injuries to the Cardinals' running-back corps, Williams didn't garner a touch in his first game on the active roster in Week 10 and was eventually released on Nov. 25. Less than two weeks removed from the move, he was again promoted from the practice squad with Andre Ellington (hernia) on course for placement on injured reserve, and proceeded to dash for 100 yards on 19 rushes. Including the wild-card loss in Carolina, Williams totaled 63 carries for 269 yards across five outings, which was good for a respectable 4.3 YPC. The selection of David Johnson in the 2015 NFL Draft was expected to push Williams down the depth chart, but the rookie was sidelined the first few weeks of training camp, prompting general manager Steve Keim to ink veteran Chris Johnson to a deal. Consequently, Williams could have a greater hill to climb in pursuit of a spot on the 53-man roster to start the campaign.

2014

2013

Williams, a late-round pick out of Utah State, will likely start the year as a reserve but has some long-term potential to develop into a solid runner.
