Saints promote RB Jonathan Williams to active roster

Saturday, September 8, 2018, 7:11pm

Mike Triplett - [Full Article]

Saints RB Jonathan Williams is being promoted to the active roster from the practice squad, per source. Makes sense considering they only had 2 RBs active. And wouldn’t be surprised to see him split time with Mike Gillislee as the backups. Don’t know who was released yet.

Related Players: Alvin Kamara, Mike Gillislee

Fantasy Impact:

The Saints only had two RBs on the active roster heading into Week 1 before this move - Alvin Kamara and Mike Gillislee. This move calms some of the sleeper appeal of Gillislee getting enough volume in the Mark Ingram role to be a sneaky start in Week 1, as Williams has been with the team all preseason. Gillislee just arrived this week.

Scouting Report

Week 3 at Atlanta Falcons

Alvin Kamara rushed 13 times for 46 yards while also catching all six of his targets for 53 yards in the Saints’ Week 2 win over the Browns. He also added a two-point conversion in the fourth quarter. Kamara surprisingly struggled on the ground against an underrated Cleveland front seven last week, though. He’ll have an opportunity to rebound this Sunday when the Saints travel to Atlanta to take on a banged-up Falcons defense. Ranked as our No. 1 RB, Kamara is a must-start in all formats.
