2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
The Panthers showed their commitment to Williams in the off-season, signing him to a five-year, $43-million contract that included $21-million in guarantees. Then they showed their commitment to a RBCC approach by signing free agent Mike Tolbert to supplement an already crowded Panthers backfield. And, of course, kill Williamsí chances of duplicating the success he enjoyed during his career year in 2008 (1,518 rushing yards and 20 total touchdowns). There are two problems with owning Williams on your fantasy roster. One is that he sits 4th in the pecking order for short yardage touches behind quarterback Cam Newton, Jonathan Stewart and Tolbert. The other is that he doesnít catch the ball with just 27 receptions over the past two years. So, his fantasy production comes from rushing yards (54.4 yards per game over the past two seasons) and long touchdown runs (five touchdown runs of 22 yards or more in 2011). That isnít a recipe for fantasy glory but it is a recipe for major inconsistency (eight games with less than five fantasy points). Consider Williams a low end RB3 in 2012.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury No practice for injured Steelers' offensive stars     -- Thu Jan 14 6:40 pm --

Roethisberger, Brown and Williams appear questionable at best
QB Ben Roethlisberger and WR Antonio Brown were not full participants in practice for the second day in a row, but that could change tomorrow. The plan for Roethlisberger (shoulder separation) all along was to not participate fully in practice until Friday, the last full practice before Sundayís divisional playoff game in Denver. Brown, though, has not been cleared to practice after sustaining a concussion in the wild-card playoff victory in Cincinnati. Meantime, RB DeAngelo Williams (foot) still has not practiced since being injured in the season finale against Cleveland and is not expected to play in Denver. (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette)

FF Today's Take: In terms of likelihood to play this week, it appears the order at the moment is Roethlisberger, Brown and then Williams. The Steelers are hopeful Brown can be cleared from the concussion protocol program and play even if he doesnít practice. Friday figures to be a big day in determining his status. Making matters worse for fantasy purposes, Pittsburgh plays in the last of the four playoff games this weekend. The Denver defense is shaping up to be a great play.
Injury DeAngelo Williams visiting noted foot doctor     -- Mon Jan 11 6:10 pm --

Missed wild-card win over Bengals with foot injury
DeAngelo Williams is consulting noted foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson in Charlotte on Monday, according to ESPN's Jim Trotter. Perhaps the foot issues are persisting for Williams, who left the team facility last week feeling confident he could return for the divisional round. That still may be the case, but seeing a foot specialist six days before a game complicates matters. Stay tuned on this one. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: Anderson is to the foot in the NFL as James Andrews is to the knee. Translation: Williams is shaping up as a longshot for the Divisional Round and perhaps the rest of the postseason. Fitzgerald Toussaint and Jordan Todman were effective in replacing Williams versus Cincinnati and should be expected to share the load against Denver.
Injury DeAngelo Williams expected to sit     -- Fri Jan 8 9:00 am --

Could return for Divisional Round
The Steelers consider RB DeAngelo Williams (foot) out vs. #Bengals, sources say. If they win, there's a chance he plays next week. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: Fitzgerald Toussaint is expected to be the starting running back and while the Steelers like to use a workhorse at the position, it wouldn't surprise anyone if Jordan Todman got some run as well. If you're looking for a Steelers RB to use, Toussaint is the pick for you playoff fantasy leagues.
Injury DeAngelo Williams remains sidelined Thursday     -- Thu Jan 7 8:45 pm --

Odds remain slim D-Will will play versus Bengals
The Steelers practiced again on Thursday and RB DeAngelo Williams remained on the sideline. Williams was injured in Week 17 against the Browns and was in a walking boot by the time the game ended with what was initially described as an ankle injury, but what the team is calling a foot issue. Whatever the exact nature of the injury, the concern about Williamsí availability to face the Bengals on Saturday remains high as long as heís unable to get on the field. (Pro Football Talk)

FF Today's Take: ESPN NFL Senior writer Jeremy Fowler tweeted Thursday that OC Todd Haley said Fitzgerald Toussaint is "the guy" this week unless Williams can go. Jordan Todman will receive some work as well, but neither Toussaint nor Todman is a high-upside fantasy option. For what it is worth, the Steelers believe Williams will be able to play if they can beat Cincinnati this weekend.
Injury DeAngelo a big question mark for Saturday     -- Mon Jan 4 11:30 pm --

No major damage but status for Saturday is unclear
Steelers running back DeAngelo Williams does not have a fracture or any major damage in his right ankle and has an outside chance, albeit a small one, of playing Saturday night in a wild-card playoff game in Cincinnati, a team source confirmed to the Post-Gazette. His biggest issue could be a matter of pain tolerance, the source said. (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette)

FF Today's Take: No structural damage sounds good but the report gives the impression that Williams is on the doubtful side of questionable heading into Wildcard Weekend. Complicating matters is the fact the Steelers play on Saturday giving Williams one less day of rest. If he's unable to play, Fitzgerald Toussaint and Jordan Todman would likely share carries making both of undesirable plays in playoff leagues and daily formats.
