22-Year-Old Running BackRB
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.

Makes debut in blowout
RBGreen Bay Packers
October 21, 2019
Williams made his NFL debut in Sunday's victory over the Raiders and had three carries for two yards.
ANALYSIS
Williams was a healthy scratch for the Packers' first six games of the season, but he was activated for Sunday's contest, and got a chance to make his professional debut in the fourth quarter with the Packers well ahead on the scoreboard. Williams is simply insurance behind both Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams at this point, but with Tra Carson no longer in the organization, he is now seemingly locked into the No. 3 spot on the depth chart.
