Packers' Jamaal Williams: Wants to stay in Green Bay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams said Monday that he'd "really love to just be a Packer all my life if I could," Kevin Patra of NFL.com reports.

Williams and regular backfield mate Aaron Jones (chest) are both set to hit free agency this offseason, but given the Packers' constrained salary cap situation, it seems unlikely that either player will get an offer from the team that would match what they could find on the open market. The 25-year-old has been a particularly effective complement to Jones over the last two seasons, having logged at least 700 yards from scrimmage and over 4.0 YPC in both campaigns. The presence of 2020 second-round pick AJ Dillon, who is widely expected to have a larger role next season, could make it easier for the Packers to let Williams walk.

Packers' Jamaal Williams: Tops 700 yards from scrimmage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams recorded 119 carries for 505 yards and two touchdowns and 31 receptions for 236 yards and another score over 14 games in 2020.

Williams didn't find the end zone as frequently as he did in 2019, but he essentially matched his production in both the yardage and yards per touch departments while topping 700 yards from scrimmage for the third time in four seasons. He isn't flashy, but he has gotten the job done and has proven himself as an effective complement to Aaron Jones. Both players will be free agents this offseason, and it remains to be seen if either will return to Green Bay. Wherever he winds up, Williams is unlikely to play a lead role, but if he at least gets the opportunity to split the work in the backfield, he'll be worthy of consideration in 2021 fantasy drafts.

Packers' Jamaal Williams: Cleared for NFC Championship Game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (ankle) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against Tampa Bay, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

A limited practice participant throughout the week, Williams never appeared in serious danger of missing the NFC Championship Game. He handled a 37 percent snap share in a divisional-round win over Los Angeles last week, taking 12 carries for 65 yards.

Packers' Jamaal Williams: Puts in another limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (ankle) practiced in a limited fashion Thursday, Olivia Reiner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Both Williams and AJ Dillon (quadriceps) have had their practice reps managed this week. If the duo is able to gain clearance to play in Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Buccaneers, Williams and Dillon will play second and third fiddle, respectively, to top running back Aaron Jones.

Packers' Jamaal Williams: Limited Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Packers listed Williams as a limited participant on Wednesday's practice report with an ankle injury.

Fellow running back AJ Dillon (quadriceps) was also listed as limited. The Packers will provide another update on Williams' condition when the team practices again Thursday, but so far, there's nothing to suggest that he's in any danger of missing Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Buccaneers.

Packers' Jamaal Williams: Hangs onto backup role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams had five carries for 26 yards in Sunday's victory over the Bears.

Williams got the ball nearly half the time he was on the field, but Aaron Jones received the bulk of the backfield work in Sunday's contest and Williams played only 12 snaps. Williams was still far more involved than fellow reserve AJ Dillon -- who tallied just five snaps and one carry -- and he remains the clear backup behind Jones heading into the postseason.

Packers' Jamaal Williams: Gets back to full participation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (quadriceps) was a full practice participant Thursday.

Williams was deemed to be limited at Wednesday's walk-through session, so his elevation to uncapped one day later is telling for the health of his quadriceps. With his status cleared ahead of Sunday's regular-season finale in Chicago, it'll be interesting to see if he retains his role as the Packers' No. 2 running back after AJ Dillon's impressive performance in Williams' absence Week 16. Dillon racked up 22 touches for 129 yards and two TDs in the blowout win over the Titans, while Aaron Jones himself recorded 12 touches for 108 total yards.

Packers' Jamaal Williams: Limited Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (quadriceps) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice.

The appearance at practice marks Williams' first since injuring his quad Week 15 against the Panthers. He proceeded to miss the Packers' dismantling of the Titans last weekend, giving AJ Dillon a chance to shine alongside Aaron Jones. Dillon, a rookie second-round pick, turned 22 touches into 129 yards from scrimmage and two scores on the ground, while Jones managed 12 touches for 108 total yards. If Williams does enough this week to be active Sunday at Chicago, it'll be interesting to see who among Williams and Dillon is working in concert with Jones.

Packers' Jamaal Williams: Back at practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (quadriceps) returned to practice Wednesday, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports

Williams didn't practice at all last week before sitting out the Packers' victory over the Titans. His absence cleared the way for AJ Dillon to have his coming-out party, as the rookie second-round pick tore through the Titans defense for 22 touches for 129 yards from scrimmage and two rushing scores. Top back Aaron Jones also tallied 12 touches for 108 total yards, so it'll be interesting to see how Williams is reincorporated into the Packers offense if he gains clearance for Sunday's game at Chicago.

Packers' Jamaal Williams: Not playing Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (quadriceps) is listed as inactive Sunday against the Titans.

After failing to practice in any capacity during Week 16 prep, Williams' imminent DNP was forecast with a doubtful designation for this contest. While Williams tends to a quadriceps injury that knocked him out of Week 15 action versus the Panthers, the Packers will ride the coattails of Aaron Jones out of their backfield. There's also the potential for rookie second-round pick AJ Dillon to get his first significant run of the campaign.

Packers' Jamaal Williams: Doubtful for SNF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (quadriceps) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against Tennessee, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

Williams suffered the injury in last Saturday's win over the Panthers, freeing up Aaron Jones for 90 percent snap share and 158 total yards on 25 touches. The Packers may find a little more work for AJ Dillon this week, but Jones is sure to be busy again.

Packers' Jamaal Williams: Sidelined for practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (quadriceps) didn't participate in Thursday's practice, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

With consecutive absences at practice to begin Week 16, Williams isn't putting himself on track to suit up Sunday against the Titans. Before providing a gauge of his availability for the contest, the Packers will see if Williams is able to practice in some capacity Friday. Rookie AJ Dillon would be in line to work as the top backup to Aaron Jones if Williams can't play this week.

Packers' Jamaal Williams: DNP on Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (quadriceps) didn't practice Wednesday.

As was foretold when he wasn't seen at the open portion of the session, Williams was held out due to the quad issue he picked up Week 15 versus the Panthers. Fellow backfield mate Aaron Jones was limited himself by a toe injury, leaving AJ Dillon as the only healthy Green Bay running back at the moment. As a result, this backfield will be one to watch as Sunday's game against the Titans approaches.

December 23, 2020 04:36 PM
Packers' Jamaal Williams: Not seen at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (quadriceps) wasn't spotted Wednesday at the portion of practice open to the media, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

If he doesn't fit in any work behind the scenes, Williams will go down as a non-participant on the Packers' injury report for the second day in a row. Aside from starter Aaron Jones, AJ Dillon is the only other healthy running back on the Packers' active roster, so the rookie second-round pick could be in line for top backup duties if Williams can't get cleared for Sunday's game versus the Titans.

Packers' Jamaal Williams: Misses Tuesday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (thigh) didn't take part in Tuesday's practice, Olivia Reiner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Green Bay won't release its first Week 16 practice report until Wednesday, but if his activity Tuesday is any indication, Williams will be listed as a non-participant. Williams was lifted early in Saturday's win over the Panthers with a thigh injury, finishing the game with one carry for six yards and two receptions for 14 yards across four offensive snaps.

December 20, 2020 07:56 PM
Packers' Jamaal Williams: Thigh issue likely isn't serious
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams' thigh injury isn't considered to be severe, but how he fares in rehab will determine his availability for next Sunday's game versus the Titans, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Due to the phrasing, Williams seems poised to be more involved with the training staff than with his teammates on the practice field for Week 16 prep. Wednesday's injury report ultimately may set the stage for his ability to suit up next weekend. If he's unable to do so, Williams could yield reps rookie second-rounder to AJ Dillon, though Aaron Jones figures to earn the bulk of the RB touches in that scenario.

Packers' Jamaal Williams: Suffers quad injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams is questionable to return to Saturday's game against the Panthers due to a quadriceps injury, Olivia Reiner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

The 25-year-old had one carry for six yards and caught both his targets for 14 yards during the first half before exiting the contest. AJ Dillon will operate as Green Bay's secondary running back behind Aaron Jones while Williams is sidelined.

Packers' Jamaal Williams: Snap count continues to decline
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams had 10 carries for 38 yards and was not targeted in Sunday's victory over the Lions.

Williams played a lower percentage of the snaps than the week before for the third game in a row, with his 20 snaps Sunday checking in just one more than the season-low 19 snaps he received in Week 3. Williams did get the ball half the time he was on the field, but he was unable to provide much help for those that included him in Week 14 lineups. With the Packers turning more to Aaron Jones and the team's Week 15 opponent -- the Panthers -- doing a good job against opposing running backs of late, those still alive in the fantasy playoffs don't have much reason to keep a roster spot reserved for Williams.

Packers' Jamaal Williams: Reduced role in Week 13
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams had five carries for 26 yards and two receptions for 10 yards in Sunday's victory over the Eagles.

After spending about half the time on the field over the previous three weeks, Williams was outsnapped roughly 2:1 by Aaron Jones in Week 13. He finished with fewer than 10 touches for just the second time in six games, but also the second time in the last three contests. Williams will have an enticing matchup in Week 14 against Detroit, but his workload is trending in the wrong direction. It should also be noted that the Lions have been better against the run of late, giving up an average of just 3.7 YPC on 114 attempts over their last four games.

Packers' Jamaal Williams: Another productive outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams had 17 carries for 73 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's victory over the Bears.

The Packers raced out to a big lead in Sunday's contest, which allowed Williams to take the same number of carries as top running back Aaron Jones. Most of Williams' damage came on a third-quarter drive, one in which he got six straight carries and ultimately found paydirt. Neither Williams' nor Jones' roles will be affected by Sunday's results, but Williams did score for a second game in a row, and he continues doing his best to show Jones is not the only ball carrier worthy of fantasy consideration in the Packers' backfield. Over the last seven games he appeared in -- with Jones sidelined for two of them -- Williams averaged 9.7 fantasy points in standard leagues.
