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.
Jamaal Williams will be a nice backup to D'Andre Swift, and should be involved on passing downs. With the lack of receiving options currently in Detroit, there could be some decent work in that regard.
A.J. Dillon should have a bigger role in Green Bay's backfield next year since Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams are set to be free agents after this season. The Packers (12-3) already gave lucrative extensions to defensive tackle Kenny Clark and offensive tackle David Bakhtiari, so it's hard to imagine they'll be able to keep both Jones and Williams.
The story added Dillon could even see more time during the Packers playoff run, which could hurt the fantasy value of Jones and Williams, perhaps especially Williams who is dealing with an injury but has been the change of pace back to Jones most of this season. It seems like there is a good chance one of Jones or Williams will be playing somewhere else next season, giving Dillon a much bigger role in 2021 with the Pack.
Packers RB Aaron Jones (toe) took limited practice reps all week. Jones is good to go for Sunday. With Jamaal Williams doubtful, Jones should see a few extra touches against the Titans. Williams (quadricep, doubtful) missed practice all week and is doubtful for Week 16.
