Jamaal Williams signed a two-year, $6M deal to backup D'Ande Swift in the Lions backfield. He rushed for at least 460 yards in each of his four seasons in Green Bay and caught at least 30 passes each of the past two years. Williams is reliable, no frills runner who has never fumbled and only missed four total games in his NFL career. He is unlikely to have fantasy value unless Swift misses time but has significant fantasy upside in that scenario. He is the clear handcuff to Swift and an injury upside pick if you have sufficient roster spots for the speculative hold.
