2017 Outlook: Jamaal Williams

Jamaal Williams figures to be the Packers' most physical rusher this year, and it might mean being their best rusher this year. At BYU, Williams rumbled for 726 carries over four years, averaging 5.4 yards per run with 35 touchdowns in 43 games. He's a great fit for Green Bay's rushing attack and is pretty much their only big-bodied player at the position. Though he'll almost never play in obvious passing situations and could be off the field during the team's two-minute drill (those roles should go to Ty Montgomery), and though he's technically not considered the starter at the beginning of training camp, Williams is worth splurging on with a pick in Round 7 or 8 in seasonal leagues. You might see him get taken a round sooner in dynasty/keeper start-up formats and will certainly be a first-round choice in rookie-only drafts.
