2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
While he lacks elite size, speed, or athleticism (hence the 4th round pick designation), Williams tape stands out, showing a nifty one-cut runner who churns out tough yards, and has exceptional vision and leg drive. Despite missing three games last season, Williams still eclipsed the 1,300 yard mark to go along with 12 touchdowns. On most NFL offenses he's probably at best a low-upside back-up, but on Green Bay, I think he has some special potential to carve out fantasy value. Much like former Packer James Starks, Williams is a smart, versatile back who can be the main ball carrier if called upon. His lack of elusiveness is made up for the fact he'll never see run blitzes or stacked boxes, and can instead use his instincts and field vision to find small creases and get to the next level of the defense. His size and power should make him a favorite at the goal line as well. With Lacy and Starks the Packers had a versatile 1-2 punch that could whittle down the clock, but make splash plays as well. I think Williams has a chance to contribute to the Pack, as well as your fantasy team this year, and is a fantastic late round flier if you can grab him there.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Aaron Jones expected to play
Jamaal Williams expected to get most of the work
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Dec 3, 8:10 am

Green Bay Packers
Packers’ RB Aaron Jones, questionable for Sunday due to knee injury, is expected to play, per source, but Jamaal Williams still expected to get most of work vs. Bucs. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: With Jones in the mix, Williams' fantasy value takes a slight hit but owners can still feel safe starting him based on Shefter's report. Williams feels like a middling RB2 today against Tampa Bay.


Injury Aaron Jones moving "pretty well" in practice
Decision on Week 13 status could come Friday or Saturday
By: Doug Orth | Thu Nov 30, 8:05 pm

Green Bay Packers
Packers RB coach Ben Sirmans says Aaron Jones (knee) moving pretty well in practice: "I think it's going to come down to a call maybe Friday, or maybe Saturday." (Green Bay Press-Gazette)

FFToday's Take: For now, it should be treated as a good sign for his Week 14 status and nothing more. HC Mike McCarthy seems happy enough with Jamaal Williams at the moment, but it wasn't long ago Jones had a vise-grip hold on early-down work in Green Bay. Jones is a good stash who could pay off handsomely in the fantasy playoffs, but owners would be wise to see him in action before putting him in lineups.


Injury Aaron Jones limited on Thursday
Ty Montgomery misses
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Nov 30, 11:45 am

Green Bay Packers
#Packers RB Aaron Jones (knee) did very little in drills media got to watch. Kevin King (shoulder) and Ty Montgomery (ribs) did not work. (Tom Silverstein on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Jones' availability for Week 13 is key as without him, Jamaal Williams will see the bulk of the work in the backfield for the Packers. We should get a better handle on Packers running back workload after tomorrow's practice.


Injury Ty Montgomery misses practice Thursday
Rib injury
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Nov 23, 11:15 am

Green Bay Packers
Not practicing for the Packers: Clay Matthews (groin), Kenny Clark (ankle), Aaron Jones (knee), Ty Montgomery (ribs), Lucas Patrick (hand). (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Mongtomery has been battling a rib injury for weeks. He missed Wednesday's practice as well, making it likely that Jamaal Williams will get the bulk of the carries this week against the Steelers. Williams will be a FLEX consideration in a bad matchup.


Injury Ty Montgomery misses practice Wednesday
Rib injury
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Nov 15, 4:10 pm

Green Bay Packers
Not practicing: RB Aaron Jones (knee), RB Ty Montgomery (ribs), S Morgan Burnett (groin), T Bryan Bulaga (knee). (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Montgomery re-injured his ribs in Week 10 and it's unlikely he will practice much this week. Head coach Mike McCarthy said he's hoping Montgomery can play this week. Expect Jamaal Williams to the majority of work this week in a neutral matchup against the Ravens-D.


Injury Aaron Jones expected to miss 3-6 weeks
MCL injury
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Nov 13, 11:30 am

Green Bay Packers
Packers RB Aaron Jones expected to be sidelined 3-6 weeks with MCL injury, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Not only did Jones get injured yesterday but Ty Montgomery left the game with a rib injury. Jamaal Williams is now back into fantasy relevance and will get the Ravens and Steelers the next two weeks.


Injury Ty Montgomery doubtful
Rib injury will likely keep Packers RB on the sideline
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Oct 6, 4:02 pm

Green Bay Packers
#Packers RB Ty Montgomery, dealing with broken ribs, listed as doubtful vs. Cowboys, as expected. WR Davante Adams (concussion) questionable. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Dealing with multiple broken ribs, look for Montgomery to be on the inactive list Sunday. In his absence, Jamaal Williams and Aaron Jones will handle running back duties. It's unclear at this time who will get the start but don't expect either back to handle 90 percent of the workload like Montgomery has done this season.


Injury Packers RBs limited Wednesday
Ty Montgomery and Jamaal Williams
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Oct 4, 2:15 pm

Green Bay Packers
Ty Montgomery practiced with significant protection around his ribs. Fellow RB Jamaal Williams (knee) also on the field. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Montgomery is dealing with multiple broken ribs while Williams suffered a sprained knee in Week 4 against the Bears. It's too early to tell if either back will play Sunday but their limited participation is a good sign. Aaron Jones would see more opportunities if either back is limited or sits.


Injury Ty Montgomery dealing with multiple broken ribs
Packers RB says organ safety is a concern moving forward
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Oct 3, 10:25 am

Green Bay Packers
Ty Montgomery said during "Clubhouse Live" that he's going to "do my best to try to be out there" but that he's worried about "risking something more serious" by playing through what he callwed "multiple" broken ribs. "I don't want to puncture any internal organs. We all know how serious that can be." (Packers News)

FFToday's Take: If Montgomery can't go this week, we could be looking at lots of touches for rookie Aaron Jones, since Jamaal Williams (knee) is also expected to miss time.


Injury Jamaal Williams avoids serious knee injury
Could miss next game, not more
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Sep 29, 1:30 pm

Green Bay Packers
Packers RB Jamaal Williams MRI results came back negative - no ligament damage, purely muscular, per source. Could miss next game, not more. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: With Ty Montgomery likely on the shelf for a few weeks with broken ribs, the Packers will need their rookie running backs to fill in. It sounds like Aaron Jones could be the featured running back in Week 5 while Williams recovers from his sprained knee injury.
