2018 Fantasy Outlook
Once Ty Montgomery and Aaron Jones broke down, Williams got his chance as the lead back in Green Bay and held his own, averaging more than 93 scrimmage yards per game over the second half of the season and scoring five touchdowns even with Brett Hundley under center. Williams, a fourth-round pick out of BYU, was projected as a possible goal-line weapon given his size (6-0, 213) and physical running style, but he proved surprisingly adept as a receiver as well. After catching only 33 passes over his final three college campaigns, he pulled down 25 of 34 targets for Green Bay. Despite a minor knee injury picked up early in the season, he also played all 16 games, dimming concerns that his lack of elusiveness could leave him injury-prone in the NFL. The team will have a lot of competition in the backfield during training camp, but his solid finish to 2017 and Jones' two-game suspension to start this season give Williams a leg up on the starting job Week 1.

Williams had seven carries for 13 yards and four receptions for 14 yards in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals. He also returned three kicks for 72 yards in the game.
ANALYSIS
The 11 touches were just three fewer than Williams tallied in the previous four games, but he was not able to do much with the added opportunities. Fellow running back Aaron Jones had a season-low 36 yards on the ground Sunday, but he still had 15 touches and found paydirt, so he still had a more productive day. Changes could occur in the Packers' offense with Mike McCarthy no longer calling the shots, but Jones remains the top option in the Green Bay backfield. Both running backs will have a nice matchup in Week 14, though, as the Packers square off against a Falcons squad that has allowed opposing running backs to rush for an average of 146.5 yards over the last four games.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Despite being a fourth-round pick, Williams has the size (6-0, 212) and strength to be an early-down back in the NFL and has shown the ability to keep his legs churning and pick up extra yards after contact, making him a potentially effective complement to converted wide receiver Ty Montgomery in the Packers' backfield. Williams had trouble staying on the field in college, missing time in his final two seasons with knee and ankle issues, and his physical running style and lack of elusiveness could lead to more injuries in the NFL. He also doesn't figure to catch many passes, as he only had 15 receptions his last two seasons at BYU. Even with Montgomery in the lead role, there should be plenty of snaps available in Green Bay's backfield, but Williams' limited skill set could prevent him from inheriting more than a small portion of them.
