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.

The Packers signed Williams to the practice squad Thursday, Jim Owczarski of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
The 2019 sixth-round pick only appeared in four contests with Green Bay as a rookie, but he'll get a chance to continue his development with the team. Both Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams are entering the final year of their rookie contracts, so the Packers could have additional opportunities in the backfield on deck in 2021.

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.
