  • Jamaal Williams Finds End Zone Again Versus Bills

    Detroit Lions running back Jamaal Williams rushed 18 times for 66 yards and a touchdown in the 28-25 loss to the Buffalo Bills. Once again, Williams paid off in fantasy thanks to the rushing score, but his PPR ceiling proved to be low. In PPR formats, he likely won't finish as a high-end play, but he's constantly found a way to be a solid flex option. Detroit plays the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 13, and a Williams rushing score is expected at this point in the season.

  • Jamaal Williams A Boom-Or-Bust Week 12 Option

    Detroit Lions running back Jamaal Williams leads the NFL with 12 touchdowns, but he should still be considered a boom-or-bust option on Thanksgiving day against the Buffalo Bills. Williams has only posted one 100-yard rushing performance on the year and lacks receiving upside, so his fantasy production is very fragile and dependent on touchdowns. However, since he's been the clear goal line touch leader for a good Lions' offense, he's tough to bench. The Bills have allowed the 11th-fewest fantasy points to running backs thus far, so the matchup could mean tough sledding. If the Lions get behind early and are forced to pass, Williams is at high risk for a bust performance. He should be viewed as a low-end RB2.

  • Jamaal Williams Scores Three Touchdowns Against Giants

    Detroit Lions running back Jamaal Williams rushed 17 times for 64 yards and three touchdowns in the win over the New York Giants. He rushed for just 3.8 yards per carry, but obviously, the three scores led to a big fantasy day. His outlook remains as a touchdown-or-bust option since he doesn't do much in the passing game, but since he leads in the NFL in touchdowns (12) through 11 weeks, it's nearly impossible to bench him. Detroit will continue to use him as a battering ram near the goal line.

  • Jamaal Williams A Touchdown-Or-Bust Option In Week 11

    Detroit Lions running back Jamaal Williams is still likely the primary back in running situations, but his pass-catching upside is almost none with D'Andre Swift finally back to full health. That said, Williams will have to have a monster yardage day or score a few touchdowns to really boom in Week 11. Williams ranks third in the NFL in rushing touchdowns with nine, so he could very well add to his impressive start, but his floor is not as safe with Swift and even Justin Jackson taking some work in the backfield. It's tough to bench Williams since he's the dominant touch-leader in the red zone, but the New York Giants have a top-10 defense against fantasy running backs.

  • D'Andre Swift, Jamaal Williams Fully Practice Thursday

    Detroit Lions running backs D'Andre Swift (ankle, shoulder) and Jamaal Williams (illness) were full participants in Thursday's practice. Williams sat out Wednesday's practice with an illness but returned to log a full session Thursday. Swift fully practiced this week and is on track to play Sunday against the New York Giants. Williams continues to lead Detroit's backfield and has out-carried Swift 50-to-13 over the last three games. Both Detroit backs are considered flex plays against a Giants defense that ranks 23rd in rush DVOA this season.

  • Jamaal Williams Totals 59 Yards In Win

    Detroit Lions running back Jamaal Williams rushed 16 times for just 59 yards in the win over the Chicago Bears. However, he rushed for one touchdown and paid off for fantasy managers who played him. Williams continues to be a touchdown-or-bust player, but the Lions have one of the best offenses in the NFL, and Williams dominates the goal line carries. He can continue to be played as an RB2 or flex option since D'Andre Swift continues to get limited touches in the Detroit backfield.

  • Jamaal Williams A Great Flex Play Against Bears

    Detroit Lions running back Jamaal Williams has tons of upside in a matchup with the Chicago Bears, who have allowed the seventh-most fantasy points per game to running backs thus far. Chicago has also allowed the third-most rushing yards per game this season. Jamaal Williams should remain the primary back in running situations, even with D'Andre Swift (shoulder) off the injury report. Both Detroit running backs could be in for huge days, but it'll be interesting to see if Swift starts to get more touches since he didn't suffer a setback in Week 9.
