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' thigh injury isn't considered to be severe, but how he fares in rehab will determine his availability for next Sunday's game versus the Titans, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
After Williams left the game in Week 15, it was all Jones with the exception of a couple of chances for Dillon. It's looking like it could be a similar pattern for Week 16 when the Packers take on the Titans on SNF. Williams status will need to be monitored this week. If he can't go, Dillon would line up as the team's RB2 behind Jones.
Packers RB Aaron Jones (calf) practiced fully Wednesday. Jones is on track to play in Week 10. He should see his usual touches to start, though the Packers may jump out to a lead against the Jaguars and feature Jamaal Williams in the second half.
