DeAngelo Williams: Still wants to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams said he wants to play in the NFL this season, ESPN.com reports.

The Steelers seem content with some combination of James Conner (hamstring), Knile Davis and Fitzgerald Toussaint serving as the backups to Le'Veon Bell (knee). The 34-year-old Williams might get a call from his former team if one of those players suffers a serious injury, but in all likelihood he'll need to find a new team in order to continue his career. After averaging 4.5 yards on 200 carries and 7.8 yards on 47 targets in 2015, he dropped off to 3.5 yards on 98 carries and 4.4 yards on 27 targets in nine games last season. Continuing his career might mean accepting a job with a team that wants him to battle for a roster spot.

DeAngelo Williams: Could still re-sign with Pittsburgh
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams could still re-sign with the Steelers if he decides to play another season, ESPN.com reports.

The 33-year-old unrestricted free agent hasn't commented on whether he plans to continue playing, but he also hasn't hinted toward any intention of retiring. Coming off an injury-plagued season in which he averaged only 3.5 yards per carry in nine games, Williams doesn't seem to be drawing much attention from other teams. The Steelers recently signed Knile Davis to boost their backfield depth, but the new addition doesn't necessarily preclude Williams from returning, as Davis owns a career YPC of just 3.2 and has done his best work as a kick returner. Should he ultimately return to Pittsburgh for another season, Williams would mostly have value as a handcuff for Le'Veon Bell owners. However, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette believes Williams is unlikely to re-sign.

Steelers' DeAngelo Williams: Totals 85 yards and a touchdown Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams ran for 34 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries in the Steelers' 36-17 AFC championship game loss to the Patriots on Sunday. He also caught all seve of his targets for 51 yards.

The combination of losing Le'Veon Bell (groin) and trailing early forced Pittsburgh to become one-dimensional on offense. As a result, Williams was more of a factor in the passing game. Injuries and suspensions to Bell have required the Steelers to call upon Williams often during his tenure with the team. He'll turn 34 before next season, but the unrestricted free agent may seek a starting role elsewhere in 2017.

Steelers' DeAngelo Williams: Two carries in win against Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams ran twice for two yards in Pittsburgh's 30-12 playoff win against Miami on Sunday.

The Steelers jumped out to an early lead, then leaned heavily on Le'Veon Bell, whose 165 rushing yards were the most by a Pittsburgh player in a postseason game, breaking the mark of 158 set by Franco Harris in Super Bowl IX against the Vikings (January 12, 1975). Thus, they didn't need to call on Williams until the final minutes of the game. Bell ran for 144 yards in a 43-14 win over the Chiefs earlier this season, so Williams may not see much action in next week's playoff game either. Serving as Bell's primary back-up this season, Williams totaled 343 yards and four touchdowns on 98 carries, and caught 18 passes for 118 yards and another two scores.

Steelers' DeAngelo Williams: Scores twice in win over Browns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams carried 23 times for 67 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's game against the Browns. He also caught three of four targets for 27 yards and another touchdown in the 27-24 overtime win.

Starting for a resting Le'Veon Bell, Williams caught an 11-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter and later plowed in from one yard out for his second score of the day. Despite a bit of inefficiency on the ground, Williams' performance was extremely positive for the team, as he looks poised to return to a useful backup role during the playoffs after not contributing in any of the last seven games due to injury.

Steelers' DeAngelo Williams: Practices fully Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (knee) practiced fully Wednesday.

Williams experienced some swelling on his knee in advance of Week 15's action, but in the absence of any setbacks, he's expected to be able to serve as Le'Veon Bell's primary backup Sunday against the Ravens.

Steelers' DeAngelo Williams: Expected to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (knee) is expected to suit up Sunday against the Ravens, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

During a media session Tuesday, head coach Mike Tomlin relayed that Williams experienced some "swelling on his knee" before the Steelers' Week 15 win at Cincinnati, which factored into the decision to include the running back on the inactive list. With the issue "behind him," per Tomlin, Williams will prepare this week as if he'll serve as Le'Veon Bell's primary backup Sunday.

Steelers' DeAngelo Williams: Inactive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

With Williams still shelved, Fitzgerald Toussaint is in line to remain the Steelers' top backup behind No. 1 RB Le'Veon Bell on Sunday.

Steelers' DeAngelo Williams: Poised to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (knee) does not carry an injury designation heading into Sunday's game against the Bengals.

After practicing fully Friday, Williams is on track to return to action this week to serve as the Steelers' top backup to undisputed starter Le'Veon Bell.

Steelers' DeAngelo Williams: Misses practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (knee) did not practice Thursday.

After logging a full session Wednesday, Williams sat out Thursday's practice, suggesting that the veteran back is not a lock to return to action Sunday against the Bengals. More on Williams' status Friday, once the Steelers release their final Week 15 injury report.

Steelers' DeAngelo Williams: Practices fully Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (knee) practiced fully Wednesday.

Williams, who has missed the last five games, thus appears to be trending toward a return to action in Week 15. In such a scenario, he'd serve as a backup behind Pittsburgh's undisputed No. 1 running back, Le'Veon Bell, on Sunday against the Bengals.

Steelers' DeAngelo Williams: Legitimate chance to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that Williams (knee) has a "legitimate" chance to play in Sunday's game against the Bengals, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Williams was in and out of practice last week and ultimately did not play in the Steelers' matchup with the Bills, but Tomlin's comments indicate he may be able to return to action in Week 15.

Steelers' DeAngelo Williams: Inactive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (knee) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Bills.

Williams appears to be nearing a return, but in his continued absence in Week 14, Fitzgerald Toussaint will remain the Steelers' top backup behind No. 1 RB Le'Veon Bell.

Steelers' DeAngelo Williams: Listed as questionable this week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills.

Williams, who did not practice Thursday, returned to a limited session Friday, so he has a chance to be active Sunday. That said, the veteran running back doesn't carry fantasy lineup utility so long as No. 1 option Le'Veon Bell remains healthy.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (knee) did not practice Thursday.

After turning in a limited session Wednesday, Williams logged an absence Thursday, thus suggesting that the veteran back is not a lock to return to action Sunday against the Bills. More on Williams' status no later than Friday, after the Steelers release their final Week 14 injury report.

Steelers' DeAngelo Williams: Returns to limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (knee) did not practice Wednesday.

Williams is inching toward a return to action, and when he is able to rejoin the Steelers' backfield mix, he'll supplant Fitzgerald Toussaint, who has been filling in as the team's top backup behind No. 1 running back Le'Veon Bell.

Steelers' DeAngelo Williams: Could return to practice this week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (knee) could return to practice this week, Dale Lolley of the Washington Observer-Reporter reports.

Lolley added that Williams has a better chance of returning to practice than teammate Darrius Heyward-Bey (foot). Williams has been held out for a large chunk of the season with a knee injury that ended up resulting in a procedure. Once he is able to return, however, he will become one of the more attractive handcuffs out there, given starter Le'Veon Bell's proneness to injury and the tremendous job Williams has done in the past filling in as a feature back for the Steelers.

Steelers' DeAngelo Williams: Still sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Giants, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Williams is inching toward a return, but in his continued absence Sunday, Fitzgerald Toussaint will remain the Steelers' top backup behind No.1 running back Le'Veon Bell.

November 30, 2016 06:38 PM
Steelers' DeAngelo Williams: Misses practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (knee) did not practice Wednesday.

Per the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, coach Mike Tomlin has noted that Williams, who is bouncing back from a knee scope, "is perking up, he's doing some good things," so it's possible that the running back could progress to the point that he'll be available to back up Le'Veon Bell on Sunday against the Giants.

Steelers' DeAngelo Williams: Likely available Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday he believes Williams (knee) will be available Sunday versus the Giants, Aditi Kinkhabwala of NFL Network reports.

Over the last five games, Williams has appeared just once, earning one carry among his four snaps. In the interim, he's undergone a meniscus trim in order to alleviate his knee concern. Now approaching the end of his recovery, he's "perking up," per Tomlin. His ability to practice before week's end will shed light on whether he's trending toward a return.
