2019 Fantasy Outlook
Williams ran in to some legal troubles in the off-season, but it's been decided that the dynamic play-maker will miss just one game to suspension. The then-freshman burst on the scene in 2018 with 1,125 yards and seven touchdowns on 161 carries (6.99 YPC) to go along with 33 catches for 289 yards (8.76 YPC) and two more scores. While he'll likely split carries with senior Khalil Herbert, there's no way new Head Coach Les Miles doesn't find ways to get Williams in to open space once he's served his suspension. With a strong offensive line, Pooka should have another superb season for fantasy purposes. Read Past Outlooks
