View RB Fantasy Rankings »
What You Need to Know:
  • Williams ran for 903 yards and 4 scores on 203 carries as a rookie last year. He added a strong 43-316-3 receiving line on 53 targets.
  • Williams finished 16th among RBs in PPR points, 16th in half-PPR and 17th in non-PPR.
  • He had a huge Week 13 vs. the Chiefs with Melvin Gordon sidelined, carrying 23 times for 102 yards and catching 6 of 9 targets for 76 yards and a score.
  • Williams’ averages in 16 games with Gordon would have left him just 36th among RBs in PPR points per game, 36th in half-PPR points per game and 33rd in non-PPR points per game.
  • Williams finished as a top-12 PPR RB in 3 of those 16 games with Gordon. He finished outside the top 24 in 11 of 16.
  • In their 16 games together, Gordon out-carried Williams 203 to 180 and 11 to 10 inside the opponent’s 5-yard line. Williams led with 44 targets to Gordon’s 38.
  • Gordon beat Williams last year in yards per carry (4.5 to 4.4), Pro Football Focus rushing grade and Football Outsiders’ rushing DVOA.
  • Williams beat Gordon in PFF’s Elusive Rating, which measures a RB’s impact beyond the blocking he receives.
    • In fact, Williams ranked 5th in Elusive Rating among 50 RBs league-wide with 100+ carries last year.
    • It was the 5th best mark by a rookie RB over the past 5 seasons, behind only Alvin Kamara, Nick Chubb, Josh Jacobs and Michael Carter.
  • In the passing game, Williams beat Gordon in PFF receiving grade and yards per route run.
    • Among 49 RBs league-wide with 30+ targets last year, Williams ranked 25th in PFF receiving grade and 24th in yards per route.
  • Williams did all that as a 21-year-old rookie. Gordon was a 28-year-old, 7-year veteran.
  • The Broncos let Gordon hit free agency this offseason before eventually signing him about a month-and-a-half later to a 1-year, $2.5 million contract. By comparison, Gordon previously played on a 2-year, $16 million deal.
  • Williams and Gordon will be playing under a new coaching staff this year led by HC Nathaniel Hackett.
    • It’s Hackett’s first crack at a HC gig. He has 8 years of NFL OC experience: 2013-2014 with the Bills, 2016-2018 with the Jaguars and 2019-2021 with the Packers.
      • Those 8 Hackett offenses all deployed committee backfields, with only Leonard Fournette (20.6 in 2017 and 16.6 in 2018) reaching 15.0 carries per game.
  • The 2021 Broncos offensive line ranked 19th in PFF run-blocking grades and 18th in Football Outsiders’ Adjusted Line Yards. They’ll get RG Graham Glasgow back after he missed the 2nd half of last season with a broken leg. And they signed Billy Turner to replace Bobby Massie at RT.
Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Williams turned in an impressive rookie season and flashed big fantasy upside in the 1 game Melvin Gordon missed.

But he scored as just a low-end RB3 across 16 games with Gordon, who’s returning to Denver in 2022 on a 1-year deal.

So the big question is how the Broncos, under a new coaching staff, will divvy snaps and touches in the backfield this season. We’re expecting the ascending Williams to claim a bigger piece of the pie – but exactly how big will determine whether he’s an inconsistent RB2 or bonafide RB1 for fantasy squads.

Gordon got in 3 limited practices this week; Williams was limited on Wednesday and Friday, sitting out on Thursday with some knee swelling.
