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.

Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams (toe) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 19.
Huddle Up: Williams should be fine for Sunday's date with the Jets. And with Aaron Jones out for the final two weeks, look for the second-year tailback to receive a sizable workload from here on out. As a result, he's a fine RB2 to plug in for fantasy playoff matchups.

Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams rushed 12 times for 55 yards and a touchdown in Week 15 against the Chicago Packers and he hauled in four receptions for 42 yards on five targets.
Huddle Up: Williams took over once Aaron Jones left the game with a knee injury and he looked pretty good against a strong defense. He could be the bellcow tailback in Week 16 if Jones is unavailable, making him an interesting addition off the waiver wire. The Packers travel to meet the Jets who have a rather leaky run defense.

Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams opened the game as the starter in Week 14 on Sunday, Dec. 9.
Huddle Up: A bit surprising, and it doesn't jibe with the narrative that fired coach Mike McCarthy favored Williams over fellow RB Aaron Jones a little much for the organization's liking. Williams had two carries for 7 yards on the Pack's opening nine-play, 75-yard scoring drive, but we'll see how the Williams/Jones workload plays out over the full game.

Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams carried the ball three times for three yards against the Miami Dolphins in Week 10.
Huddle Up: Rewind a few weeks and Williams was part of a three-headed backfield committee with Aaron Jones and Ty Montgomery. Now, Montgomery is gone and Jones is the man. An RB3 candidate when the season began, Williams is now only worth holding as Jones insurance -- on that front, keep in mind that Jones has had trouble staying healthy going back to his collegiate days.
