  • Broncos' Javonte Williams: Finishes rookie season strong

    Williams rushed 12 times for 46 yards and brought in both targets for 18 yards in the Broncos' 28-24 loss to the Chiefs on Saturday.

    Given how well and evenly Williams and Melvin Gordon worked in tandem this season, it was fitting the two split carries right down the middle for the Broncos' final contest. The rookie bounced back well from a pair of atypically inefficient outings Week 16 and 17 where he'd gained just 42 yards on 21 carries, and Saturday's production put him just over the 900-yard mark (903) to close out his first NFL season. The UNC product also generated an impressive 43-316-3 line through the air, and with Gordon slated for unrestricted free agency come the new league year, Williams could well be set to enter training camp as the clear lead back this coming summer.

  • Broncos' Javonte Williams: Logs limited practice

    Williams (knee) was listed as a limited practice participant Wednesday, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

    Melvin Gordon (thumb/hip) was also limited, but at this stage, there's nothing to suggest that either back will miss Saturday's game against Kansas City, even if both players approach the weekend with an injury designation.

  • Broncos' Javonte Williams: Cleared for Week 18

    Williams (knee) does not carry an injury designation for Saturday's game against Kansas City after practicing fully Thursday, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

    The same applies to Melvin Gordon (thumb/hip), which sets the stage for the duo to continue to share backfield duties in Denver's season finale. It's a timeshare that caps Williams' fantasy ceiling, but more often than not he's logged enough touches to help fantasy managers this season, and he'll square off this weekend against a Chiefs run defense that is allowing an average of 113.0 rushing yards per game to date.

  • Broncos' Javonte Williams: Reps capped due to knee issue

    Williams (knee) was listed as a limited participant on Tuesday's estimated practice report, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

    For the fourth week in a row, Williams is appearing on the injury report with a lingering knee issue, but head coach Vic Fangio hasn't suggested the rookie is at risk of missing Saturday's season finale against Kansas City. So long as Williams continues to practice in some capacity Wednesday and Thursday, he'll likely be deemed good to go for the Week 18 matchup. As has been the case all season, Williams is expected to once again work in a timeshare out of the backfield with Melvin Gordon (thumb/hip), who was also listed as a limited participant Tuesday.

  • Broncos' Javonte Williams: Disappointing numbers Sunday

    Williams carried the ball 14 times for 30 yards and caught his only target for two yards in Sunday's 34-13 loss to the Chargers.

    The rookie had reached 80 scrimmage yards or scored a touchdown, or both, in four straight games coming into Sunday, but the knee issue that limited Williams' practice participation during the week may have been a factor in his disappointing showing against one of the league's softer run defenses. He still has an outside chance at 1,000 rushing yards on the season, but he'll need 143 yards in a Week 18 clash with Kansas City to get there.

  • Broncos' Javonte Williams: Active for Week 17

    Williams (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Chargers, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

    So is fellow running back Melvin Gordon (thumb/hip). As a result, the duo is in line to once again share backfield work Sunday, with a Week 17 bounce-back opportunity on tap for both players (who put up modest production last weekend versus the Raiders) against a Chargers defense that's allowing an average of 140.3 rushing yards per game to date.

  • Broncos' Javonte Williams: Expected to play Sunday

    Williams (knee), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chargers, is expected to play, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Melvin Gordon (thumb/hip) is also expected to play, according to Schefter, so the duo looks set to split the workload in the backfield against the Chargers. Both players were limited participants in practice all week.

  • Broncos' Javonte Williams: Listed questionable for Sunday

    Williams (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chargers after practicing in a limited fashion this past week.

    Melvin Gordon (thumb/hip) was also a limited participant throughout the week and carries a questionable designation into Sunday, though both he and Williams appear at little risk of sitting out. Assuming both players are active, they would be in line to share carries in Week 17, with a bounce-back opportunity on tap against the Chargers' struggling run defense.
