Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 20, and is not on the injury report for Week 3.
Huddle Up: Head coach Matt LaFleur indicated that Williams will be sharing playing time with Aaron Jones moving forward, which could hurt the fantasy value of both players. Williams has not done much during the first two games of the season but could be a flex option in some leagues if he does receive more touches.

Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams (ankle) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 19.
Huddle Up: The Packers indicated that Williams and Aaron Jones could split touches more evenly moving forward, but Williams may be a question mark for Week 3. Fantasy players may want to wait a game or two before using Williams to see if he actually will receive more work on offense.

Green Bay Packers RBs Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams will split work in an effort to keep Jones fresh for later in the season, according to head coach Matt LaFleur Wednesday, Sept. 18, who said he wants to 'even up' touches between the pair.
Huddle Up: Jones received 23 carries in Week 2. He has received 58.3% of the offensive snaps in the backfield thus far, with Williams playing more on special teams. Jones should continue to perform at a high-end RB2 level throughout the season while Williams isn't currently worth having on rosters.

Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams failed to gain a yard on five carries and caught two passes for 15 yards in a 10-3 win over the Chicago Bears Thursday, Sept. 5.
Huddle Up: Aaron Jones carried the ball 13 times and appears to be locked into the lead role. In fact, Williams may be nothing more than a handcuff if his usage in the opener is a sign of things to come.

Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams (hamstring) remains out of practice Wednesday, July 31, for the fourth straight day with a hamstring injury.
Huddle Up: Williams is a low-end running back to complete your roster and a handcuff to Aaron Jones. The more time he misses, the more he'll suffer to start the season.

Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams (hamstring) did not practice Saturday, July 27.
Huddle Up: Williams is expected to be in some form of a committee with Aaron Jones to open the year. Jones is the more explosive back with the higher ceiling, but Williams should at least be a high-end handcuff who sees some on early downs.

Green Bay Packers RBs Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams are expected to be utilized in a committee approach, according to new head coach Matt LaFleur. LaFleur said the running back position is one of the more violent positions in the league considering the punishment absorbed.
Huddle Up: This isn't good news for Jones, who has clearly been the most successful running back for the Packers of late. Williams can hold his own and isn't a pushover by any means, but a committee stunts Jones' fantasy ceiling to be sure. Heading into 2019, Jones can be drafted as an RB2 and Williams as an RB3 and/or handcuff to Jones.

Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams ran eight times for just four yards in Week 17 against the Detroit Lions while adding three grabs for 16 yards.
Huddle Up: Williams was getting a look as the primary back, but the team lost Aaron Rodgers (concussion) early and the offense was disjointed the rest of the afternoon. He could be back in 2019, but as long as Aaron Jones is around Williams is second fiddle.

Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams rushed 15 times for 95 yards and a touchdown and caught six passes for 61 yards in a 44-38 win over the New York Jets in Week 16.
Huddle Up: With Aaron Jones out for the year, Williams delivered a big game as the featured back. He will be a RB2 candidate in the regular season finale against the Detroit Lions.

Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams (toe) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 20.
Huddle Up: Owners should keep an eye on the situation to see if Williams is in any danger of missing the Week 16 game. He will receive most of the work at running back if he plays and would be No. 2 running back in most fantasy leagues.
