Williams carried the ball five times for 26 yards in Sunday's loss to Philadelphia. Williams topped five yards per carry for just the second time this season during Sunday's contest. The Giants' stable has been an enigma all season, but Rashad Jennings came on late with 432 yards and two of his three scores this season in the final four games. With Shane Vereen likely to continue as a valuable passing-game option, it will be up to the new regime to determine whether Jennings' production is worth his contract, if Williams deserves more opportunities or if the Giants' next featured back is in the draft or free agency pool.
Williams carried the ball three times for three yards in Monday's loss to Miami. Williams rushed for his third highest total of the season in Week 9, a modest 30 yards. He has tallied just 28 in the four games since. Rashad Jennings ran for a season high 22 carries and 81 yards on Monday and, given his success, should be in line for a heavier workload. If that happens, expect Williams to continue to see small workloads.
Williams rushed six times for 22 yards and failed to catch his only target during Sunday's loss to the Jets. The Giants running back situation is just awful right now for fantasy purposes, as they continues to split carries among Williams (who led the team with 3.7 yards per carry Sunday), Orleans Darkwa (eight carries for 23 yards, both team-highs), Rashed Jennings (five for 14) and Shane Vereen (four for 13). Given the inability of any of them to break out for meaningful touches, they are all weak fantasy options.
Williams rushed for two yards on two carries in Sunday's loss to New England. Coming off of his third-largest workload of the season before the bye, Williams saw the field for all of two snaps on Sunday, a season low. A large part of Sunday's low snapcount is attributable to the Giants' commitment to the pass, as the team attempted 44 throws - Eli Manning's second highest total of the season. It also illustrates how fickle Williams' role is in New York. The second-year back has topped 40 yards just once this season and has scored once. He should not be on most fantasy rosters.
Williams carried the ball seven times for 30 yards in Sunday's win over Tampa Bay. He added a seven-yard reception on one target. The catch was Williams' first of the season and his 13 offensive snaps were his most since Week 4. Eight touches on 13 plays is an excellent usage rate, but, with three other backs in the mix, many more snaps are unlikely to be forthcoming. With just one score on the season, Williams is not likely to vulture enough touchdowns to be worth a pickup.
