Jamaal Williams 2018 Outlook


Recommended Posts

Packers RB is all about the short yardage and GL conversions. Rodgers will do the rest of the work between the 20's. Didn't Kuhn have double digit TD's or close to that one season? I don't think they envision their RB going off for 1000+ rushing yards.

Just old news tbh. Williams is the best blocker of the bunch, you should expect him to lead the team in RB snaps, whether the Aaron Jones Fan Club wants to hear it or not.

Kuhn was never close. Unless Williams is going to be on the field in passing situations, he's an inferior Eddie Lacy at best (with much less volume) and is being overdrafted.

I own Williams but Jones looked like the most dynamic player in this backfield last season and it’s not even close

Doesn't matter, Jones won't hold much value if he can't even win the starting job. McCarthy's priority is keeping Rodgers upright, not establishing a running game. Green Bay doesn't need one with Rodgers healthy.

sounds like RBBC wasteland to me, especially after that short suspension is up

Jamaal is a bit underrated, he got a rough shake of things last year, always getting stuck on the field when the line was injured. Jones had a much higher proportion of Bulaga to work with. That said, I don't think he's worth it at his ADP personally. Jones is also a little early given his situation, though I think he's capable of being a very good runner. I'm also likely to avoid everything, though I could see myself taking Monty just because he could put up great numbers with injuries and he's going very late.

No.  As I mentioned before, in the last 10 years, only 3 times did a GB RB have more than 4 TDs.  Eddie Lacy (9, 11), and Ryan Grant (11).

should  be a committee for all 3 guys, with Williams getting the first crack at carving out a larger share, not really rocket science.  unless Jones  has significantly improved in pass pro this off season he isn't, there is no chance he is the lead back if Williams and Monte can put up serviceable numbers.

The starting RB for one of the better offenses in the league in the 7th round seems like a fair price to me.  Even considering the @Chardo's stat over the last 10 years, I still think Williams is a great value at his current ADP.  He is more than just a body to fill your RB2 slot with.

If he pass blocks above average then there's not taking him out of the game. Rodgers has broken his collar bone twice in recent years. He can't take any more hits like that even if he wasn't in the pocket for my particular examples.

That's because they utilize the talents of what they have to work with. This is how they keep making the playoffs every year. They play smart. If Williams does well in the redzone then they will keep going back to the well.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Jamaal Williams is "poised to have a big year."

"I think we'll be talking about him at the end of the season as a second-year player that's made the jump," McCarthy added. With Aaron Jones suspended to start the year, Williams is going to open as the starter, and the Packers showed a tendency to stick with one back last season. If he can stay healthy, it is possible if not likely Williams will keep the job all year. He remains a fine pick even with his ADP creeping up every day.

And 2 of those years were without Rodgers for much of the season.

Good point, so they weren't able to move the chains and so it made it extra difficult to run in TDs.

He's in a committee where he's fine, but still the worst yardage gainer of the 3, and the team doesn't commit to the run (unless it's in Lacy's case, where he was briefly one of the 5 best RBs in the league). I don't think he's a huge reach or some bust, but he's a little rich for my taste.

I'm just not convinced the book is written on Jamaal Williams yet. 

 

He got an extended run last year, but it was with Rodgers on the shelf. 

He was also a rookie, still learning the playbook, assignments, etc...

 

I think Williams could be significantly better in year 2 based on getting to play with Rodgers, being better prepared/more comfortable with the playbook and his assignments, etc...

This is the reason why I took a flier on him in the 17th round (out of 21 rounds). He'll get his shot with Jones out.

Nope, Jones was also picked up in my 10 man league and also in my 12 man league.

I'm confused. Yes, Jones is being drafted in basically all leagues. 2-3 rounds after Williams.

His ADP is up into the 5th round in standard... but congrats I'm sure you'll school the 2nd graders in the class you teach :lol:
