Cardinals' Kerwynn Williams: Amasses one rushing touchdown in 2015
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Williams amassed 27 rushes for 142 yards and one touchdown during the 2015 campaign.

Williams spent much of the campaign on the Cardinals' practice squad, but his elevation to the 53-man roster on Dec. 1 was precipitated by injuries to both Chris Johnson (tibia) and Andre Ellington in Week 12. From Weeks 13 through 16, Williams worked as David Johnson's primary backup, notching all but three of his rushing yards on the season. Across six appearances total, Williams also recorded two catches on two targets for 16 yards, while taking eight kickoffs for 126 yards (or 15.8 yards per return). With one year remaining on his contract, expect him to stick around as a depth option, though the backfield is now the domain of David Johnson.

Cardinals' Kerwynn Williams: Totals 44 rushing yards, but fumbles Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Williams totaled eight carries for 44 yards and one reception (on one target) for four yards, yet he lost a fumble during Sunday's win against the Packers.

After the Cardinals extended the lead from 17 to 31 within the first 5:30 of the third quarter, head coach Bruce Arians pulled lead back David Johnson from the contest, allowing Andre Ellington and Williams a few drives apiece to show off their wares. Ellington (turf toe) was given the first shot, but Williams actually earned one more snap (11 versus 10) down the stretch. Hurting his case for future work, Williams fumbled at the end of a five-yard run on Arizona's second-to-last possession. However, a healthy 5.3 YPC in limited usage likely won't spell the end of his appearances with the postseason imminent.

Cardinals' Kerwynn Williams: Amasses seven touches Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Williams amassed six rushes for 34 yards and one catch for 12 yards during Sunday's victory at Philadelphia.

The contest was David Johnson's coming-out party, but Williams was nearly as efficient on the ground, averaging 5.7 YPC. While spelling Johnson on occasion, Williams also set up the Cardinals with decent field position, averaging 20.7 yards per kickoff return. The potential return of Andre Ellington (turf toe) this Sunday against the Packers could make Williams irrelevant in the fantasy realm once again, but that's no guarantee.

Cardinals' Kerwynn Williams: Struggles badly with limited work
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Williams gained two yards on six carries in Thursday's 23-20 win over the Vikings

Williams got a few extra carries when David Johnson briefly left the game with an apparent knee/leg injury, and it quickly became clear why the Cardinals have leaned so heavily on their rookie the past two weeks. Williams missed a couple of obvious holes, then later lost eight yards on a carry when the Cardinals were in position for a go-ahead field goal late in the fourth quarter. Williams is unlikely to get more than a handful of touches against the Eagles in Week 15, and he may even be released if Andre Ellington (toe) is ready to return.

Cardinals' Kerwynn Williams: Thrives in supporting role versus Rams
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Williams carried six times for 59 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Rams.

The third-year back performed well after being re-promoted from the Cardinals' practice squad, responding with season-highs in touches and yardage while scoring for the first time this season. Stepfan Taylor entered the game as the backup to David Johnson, but the former suffered a shoulder injury, opening the door for Williams. It is unclear whether the team will keep Williams active once Andre Ellington is healthy enough to return from an injury, but Sunday's performance certainly didn't hurt his case. If Ellington and Taylor are unable to return next week against the Vikings, expect Williams to serve as the top backup.
