  • Saints' Jamaal Williams: Scores late in season finale

    Williams compiled 14 rushes for 26 yards and one touchdown and gathered in all three targets for eight yards during Sunday's 48-17 victory versus the Falcons.

    Williams ended up having a quiet night while stepping up in the absence of starting running back Alvin Kamara (ankle). Williams was expected to handle the majority of the Saints' rushing workload, but he ultimately logged just one more carry than rookie Kendre Miller, who led the team with 73 yards and tallied a rushing score in the second quarter. Meanwhile, Williams struggled to find much success, logging just one rushing attempt longer than five yards. He salvaged his underwhelming outing with a one-yard rushing touchdown on the Saints' final offensive series. Williams finishes his first season in New Orleans with 106 carries for 306 yards and one touchdown across 13 games. The 28-year-old has two remaining seasons on his current contract with the Saints.

  • Saints' Jamaal Williams: Set to fill in for Kamara

    Williams is in line to lead the Saints backfield Sunday versus the Falcons with Alvin Kamara (ankle) inactive.

    Kamara is sitting out for the first time since Week 3, which typically would afford his replacement plenty of work. That may be the case for Williams on Sunday, but he's averaged a career-low 3.0 yards on 92 carries, hauled in 15 of 17 passes for 54 yards and scored no touchdowns in 12 appearances this season. Considering his experience, he's the favorite to be the team's top rusher, but rookie third-round pick Kendre Miller (ankle) and practice-squad call-up Jordan Mims also are on hand for RB reps.

  • Saints' Jamaal Williams: Steps up in Week 17 win

    Williams tallied 19 carries for 58 yards and gathered in all four targets for 13 yards during Sunday's 23-13 win over the Buccaneers.

    Williams logged six carries for just nine yards during the first half and appeared on pace to record another underwhelming statistical outing. However, his workload saw a sharp increase after top running back Alvin Kamara was ruled out with an ankle injury early in the second half. Williams went on to record season highs in both rushing attempts and yards. While he never logged a carry longer than seven yards, the 224-pound running back proved much more effective during the second half, averaging 3.8 yards across 13 carries. Williams also played a much larger role than Taysom Hill, who has often been used as a rushing threat while lined up at quarterback in the shotgun alongside Kamara but totaled just two carries Week 17. With Hill's role in the rushing game diminishing over the back half of the season and Kamara's availability unclear for New Orleans' regular-season finale, it will be worth considering Williams as a potential fill-in option for fantasy owners in need of a RB2 in Week 18.
