The Saints on Saturday promoted RB Jonathan Williams from the practice squad. It continues a weird circuit that started with him looking like Mark Ingram's main fill-in, then found him cut and signed to the practice squad. We'll see exactly how Saints RB touches get allotted in the opener. Don't trust any New Orleans RB beyond Alvin Kamara in fantasy lineups.

The Saints have cut RB Jonathan Williams, who seemed on track to pick up early carries in Mark Ingram's absence. Williams' departure leaves Trey Edmunds and rookie Boston Scott as potential early touch collectors during Ingram's 4-game suspension. Don't go out of your way to draft any non-starting Saints RB over the next week, though.

The Saints have signed RB Jonathan Williams off Denver's practice squad, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The 2nd-year back was surprisingly cut by Buffalo before the season and hadn't been heard from since. He obviously has no immediate fantasy value in New Orleans. But an injury to either Mark Ingram or Alvin Kamara could change that.

The Broncos have signed RB Jonathan Williams to their practice squad. The 2nd-year back was surprisingly cut by the Bills over the weekend and then went unclaimed on waivers. Williams looked good all preseason, averaging 5.8 yards per carry, and remains an intriguing prospect. He has major depth-chart climbing to do in Denver, but there's opportunity in an unsettled backfield. We'll continue to keep an eye on him.

The Bills surprisingly cut RB Jonathan Williams on Sunday. The 2nd-year back enjoyed a good preseason and looked like the #2 RB behind LeSean McCoy. We can't help but wonder if there are off-field issues at play here. He had a DWI arrest in June but didn't face any discipline, and we haven't heard of any further issues. The move leaves Joe Banyard, Taiwan Jones and Mike Tolbert behind McCoy in an offense that seems to look worse by the day. If you're drafting today and happen to land McCoy, don't bother reaching for any handcuff. We'd bet on Williams being quickly picked up by another team -- unless there's something else below the surface here.
