The Saints have agreed to a three-year, $12 million deal with RB Jamaal Williams, according to multiple reports. The first thing you need to do here is ignore that Williams led the NFL in rushing TDs last year. That won't happen again. Williams logged eight more carries inside the 5-yard line than anyone else in the league -- 12 more than any other RB. He scored on half of those carries. Williams also led the league in red-zone carries and TDs, even while ranking just fifth in team share of red-zone attempts (60%). Williams benefited from a stellar Lions O-line, a run-friendly offense and D'Andre Swift injuries. He does, however, find another upside path in New Orleans. Alvin Kamara is widely expected to get some suspension this year for his pending assault case. Whether it will come this year and how long it will be, though, remains unknown. The Saints clearly imported Williams to at least complement Kamara, as we've seen Latavius Murray and Mark Ingram do before. Bet on Kamara ceding a larger share of carries than he did last year, as he hits his seventh NFL season. That's enough to make Williams a fine pick in his current low-RB3 ADP range. And if Kamara misses significant time, Williams could easily reach high-end RB2 production.
Saints RB Jamaal Williams (hamstring) has been placed on IR. He'll miss at least the next four games, making Week 7 his earliest possible return. With RB Alvin Kamara set to return from his suspension next week, Williams is droppable in standard-sized fantasy leagues. Rookie RB Kendre Miller has a good opportunity to carve out a role in Williams' absence.
Saints RB Jamaal Williams (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday’s game vs. the Packers. RB Kendre Miller (knee, hamstring) is not listed on the final injury report after practicing all week. The rookie will make his regular-season debut on Sunday, joining RB Tony Jones (and probably Taysom Hill) in the backfield. Miller is an interesting DFS tournament flier but would be a risky season-long play.
Saints RB Jamaal Williams is expected to miss “some time” with his hamstring injury, HC Dennis Allen said Tuesday. We'll see exactly how long Williams is out, but it sounds like he'll at least miss this Sunday's game vs. the Packers. That's the final game of RB Alvin Kamara's three-game suspension, while rookie RB Kendre Miller is still working back from knee and hamstring injuries. So the Saints could be down to Tony Jones as lead back this weekend. We could also see Taysom Hill play a big role on the ground. He wound up carrying nine times for 75 yards in the Week 2 win over the Panthers.
Saints RB Jamaal Williams left Monday night's game against the Panthers with a hamstring injury. He's questionable to return. With RB Kendre Miller inactive once again, New Orleans is left with Tony Jones Jr. as "lead" RB.
Saints RB Jamaal Williams racked up 18 carries in Sunday's win over the Titans, ceding just 1 RB carry to Tony Jones. Williams managed just 45 yards, though, against a Tennessee defense that ranked among the league's toughest vs. the run in 2022. Williams added just 7 more yards on 2 catches, among 2 targets. Taysom Hill worked in for 3 carries (and just 4 yards) as well, plus 0 catches on 1 target. Williams gets Carolina in Week 2, which was a more neutral matchup for RBs in 2022. A Week 3 spot at Green Bay looks more favorable as well. Williams' Week 1 touch count will keep him in fantasy-starter consideration the next two weeks, in spite of his lackluster production vs. the Titans.
