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.

Well-positioned for roster spot

Williams is one of four tailbacks on the Green Bay roster after the team cut Kapri Bibbs earlier in June.
ANALYSIS
The rookie sixth-round pick is in excellent position for a spot on the 53-man roster, likely competing with 26-year-old Tra Carson (ribs) for a single job. Williams may even have an opportunity to push Jamaal Williams for backup work -- a potentially valuable role given that lead back Aaron Jones has suffered three MCL sprains in two pro seasons. Jones returned healthy for the start of the offseason program and reportedly is in much better shape after he changed his diet to reduce sugar intake.
