2017 FANTASY FOOTBALL STATUS REPORT: JAMAAL WILLIAMS RB GREEN BAY PACKERS

The mantra "next man up" has certainly been the theme of the injury-ravaged Green Bay Packers so far during the course of the 2017 fantasy football season.  Not only has the team lost star QB Aaron Rodgers likely for the year with a broken collarbone, the running back corps has been torn apart with health woes as well.  This point was driven home this past Sunday when first rookie runner Aaron Jones was carted off with a knee injury and then was followed by Ty Montgomery exiting with another rib injury.  Both Jones and Montgomery are long shots to play in Week 11 and so that leaves rookie BYU product Jamaal Williams as the last man standing.  Replacing Jones and Montgomery Sunday. Williams was not very impressive as he picked up 67 yards on 20 carries; while also adding one catch for 7 more yards.  Nothing earth-shattering by any means but Williams will likely be a bellcow back in Week 11 which should make him a popular add in most fantasy football leagues.  Even going back to his BYU days, Williams was known primarily as a plodding power runner who lacks flash and doesn't do much in the receiving game. That makes him more of a standard league priority, while in PPR we would prefer Rex Burkhead or Danny Woodhead as a better waiver pick.
