2020 Fantasy Outlook
Williams, selected in the sixth round in 2019, appeared in four games in his rookie season. He will likely have to show some progress to make the cut in his second year, as the Packers' top two running backs remain on the roster and the Packers drafted running back AJ Dillon and brought back another in Tyler Ervin.

Williams has signed a reserve/future contract with the Packers.
ANALYSIS
Williams was just cut from the Packers' practice squad prior to their loss in the NFC Championship Game. His departure was used to add offensive line depth. He spent most of the 2020 season on Green Bay's practice squad, but he did ultimately suit up for three games and record eight yards on two rushes.

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.
