  • Williams will compete with Tyler Allgeier and Qadree Ollison for touches after the release of Mike Davis, Josh Kendall of The Athletic reports. Williams agreed to a one-year deal with the Falcons this offseason after serving as a backup in Chicago last year. Cordarrelle Patterson likely will lead the backfield once again, but the release of Davis and the acquisitions of Allgeier and Williams change the rest of Atlanta's running back depth chart. With Marcus Mariota at the helm, it wouldn't be surprising to see the Falcons feature a heavy dose of the run, so all four backs may get opportunities throughout the season, though Patterson certainly boasts the highest fantasy upside going into training camp.

  • The Falcons and Williams agreed to terms on a one-year contract Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Aside from opting out in 2020, Williams has earned work in each of the seven pro campaigns that he's been on a roster. Most recently, he turned 56 touches into 267 yards from scrimmage and three total TDs in 12 games with the Bears last year. He'll join a backfield led by Mike Davis (ribs) -- at least for the time being -- meaning Williams is poised to have some type of role out of Atlanta's backfield this season.

  • Williams caught three passes for 33 yards and a touchdown in the Bears' 31-17 Week 18 loss to the Vikings, and he ended the season with 40 carries for 164 yards and two touchdowns while adding 16 receptions for 103 yards and one touchdown. After starting the season seeing work as a change-of-pace option to David Montgomery, Williams was passed on the depth chart by Khalil Herbert, and from Week 7 on, he saw very limited action. Although he technically has a low-salary contract in 2022, it's a void year, and the Bears would owe him nothing if they move on. Unless his situation improves dramatically, he'll be a depth option for fantasy managers.

  • Williams failed to catch his lone target in the Bears' 29-3 win over the Giants on Sunday. Williams hasn't received more than three touches in a game since Week 7, and he won't be a recommended fantasy option in Week 18 against the Vikings.

  • Williams rushed once for 12 yards and had a two-yard reception in the Bears' 25-24 win over the Seahawks on Sunday. With David Montgomery carrying the load with 21 carries and nine targets, Williams shared the few leftover touches with Khalil Herbert. It's unlikely Williams sees an increase in work in Week 17 against the Giants, making him tough to trust in fantasy lineups.
