The shiny, new toy in the Broncos offense is rookie running back Javonte Williams. The Broncos moved up in the draft to select Williams early in the second round, a sign that they truly targeted him as a player they wanted.

Williams rushed for 1,140 and 19 touchdowns in his junior season at North Carolina, adding 25 receptions for 305 yards and another three touchdowns in the passing game. He did this despite sharing the backfield with fellow rookie running back, fourth round Jets selection Michael Carter. Williams brings excellent agility and strength but lacks high-end straight line speed, as he ran just a 4.57 forty yard dash at his pro day, at 5'10", 212 lbs.

Williams' ADP has now actually surpassed 2020 starter Melvin Gordon's ADP as fans are excited about a potential new bell cow fantasy running back. He's an all-purpose back with legit RB1 upside for dynasty, but he's in a tough situation this season, playing in an offense that is not expected to be very good, especially through the air. Not to mention, we've seen quite a bit of recent history with even highly-drafted rookie running backs that would lead us to believe that the Broncos won't just completely hand over the reins to Williams. Gordon wasn't bad last year and he's a veteran who understands the offense, is a quality pass protector, and contributes in all phases of the game. That type of player typically doesn't just go away.

Williams does have league-winning potential if he ends up somehow taking over as the bell cow in Denver, but the risk is that he may never play substantially more than 50 percent of snaps in 2021, and the Broncos offense probably isn't good enough to boost two running backs to fantasy relevance. If there's a full on split, they might not even be good enough to produce one weekly fantasy starter at RB.
