Packers HC Matt LaFleur said running back is one of the more violent positions in the league with the punishment those players absorb. He believes a committee approach is the most effective regarding Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams.
This is not necessarily a death knell to Aaron Jones' value, though LaFleur's usage of both Derrick Henry and Dion Lewis last year limited the upside of each until LaFleur began to feed Henry late in the season. Lewis finished with 214 touches to Henry's 230, so it was a near-even split.
GB RB Jamaal Williams - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs. Detroit Lions
Jamaal Williams had a strong game as expected, last week, gaining 95 yards and a touchdown on the ground and adding six receptions for 61 yards against a soft Jets defense. The Lions will provide a little more resistance, at least on the ground, but Williams should get 20-plus touches again this week, which puts him in solid RB2 range with RB1 upside.
