Draft note
by John Paulsen
Williams is currently the 45th back off the board in the 11th/12th round. Drafters are really sleeping on him at this point. The Lions cut Kerryon Johnson and let Adrian Peterson walk, which means that 239 touches have been vacated. D'Andre Swift will surely see some of that work, but he’s unlikely to surpass 20.0 touches per game with the capable Williams around. It’s fairly easy to project Williams for 200+ touches in an RB1b role. Remember, the Lions gave Williams the third-most guaranteed money in this year’s free-agent class.

DET RB Jamaal Williams - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 vs. Bengals

Williams simply isn't going away, as he's maintained a prominent role in this Lions offense. The veteran back has played on 36.47% of the snaps with 11 red-zone carries (tied with D'Andre Swift) and 16 targets. The problem is that Williams needs the Lions' offense to perform at a higher level to provide fantasy value, as he depends on red-zone attempts and rushing efficiency since Swift has dominated passing game usage.

The Lions are 3-point home underdogs in this game, so the Lions project to be competitive here, which bodes well for Williams' outlook. The veteran back can be considered on the FLEX radar because of his usage in the red zone. We've also seen some efficiency, as he's averaged 4.4 yards per carry.
