Week 17 vs. Cleveland
Le'Veon Bell will sit this one out, meaning Williams will get his first extended playing time since Week 2, when he had 94 yards on 32 carries in a win over Cincinnati. He's been sitting out after having a meniscus surgery after Week 9 but he's been healthy the past few weeks. He just hasn't played as Bell has gotten all the work. He'll likely be limited to 20 or so touches in this game, getting just enough work to make sure he's ready for the playoffs. But against Cleveland's defense, 20 touches could certainly add up to a good day. Williams is a solid starting option this week given the opponent.
