|6-0, 212||Born: 4-3-1995||College: Brigham Young||Drafted: Round 4|
News you need to know
From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Nov 20): The clock is ticking on Williams' stint as the starter, with Ty Montgomery probably coming back from his rib injury at some point, but Devante Mays fumbled away a chance to be part of the backfield and Williams looked good as a receiver out of the backfield and when finishing his runs with physical play. He'll only be a flex play against the Steelers this week, but better matchups are coming after that, and Aaron Rodgers could be back in Week 15.
Week 12: at Pittsburgh Steelers
Detailed matchup analysis coming soon.
Recent Stats and Projections
Recent Game Summaries
2017 Week 10 vs CHI (20 / 67 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 7 / 0 rec)
Williams was the last man standing on a day when Ty Montgomery and fellow rookie Aaron Jones both went down with injury. He had a few decent moments, but looked a bit plodding and struggled to gain any ground especially after first contact. He will probably get the start next week, but could see competition from rookie Devante Mays or someone off the street. Williams should have a chance to show improvement though with that next start.
2017 Week 9 vs DET (1 / 1 / 1 rush, 2 / 2 / 31 / 0 rec)
Williams saw some work late and got a garbage touchdown with no time on the clock. While he looked promising at one point this season, he is clearly at least third in the backfield.
2017 Week 5 vs DAL (1 / 1 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Williams is allegedly healthy now, but he didn't see the field beyond two snaps but at least one of them involved a carry.
2017 Week 4 vs CHI (4 / 11 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 2 / 0 rec)
Williams left early in the game and looked like he was in a lot of pain. Luckily, an MRI came back negative and there are no torn ligaments in his knee and Adam Schefter reported that Williams could miss the last game but will not miss more.
2017 Week 3 vs CIN (1 / 6 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Williams briefly went into the game when Ty Montgomery was having his arm attended to, but continues to be clearly well behind Montgomery in the pecking order.
2017 Week 2 vs ATL (2 / 6 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec)
Williams got one carry in each half and didn't do much with either one. He's clearly well behind Ty Montgomery for touches and snaps.
2017 Week 1 vs SEA (2 / 9 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Williams only got some carries when Ty Montgomery was briefly sidelined with an ankle injury. He's clearly the next man up if something happens to Montgomery, but aside from that it doesn't appear he will get much work if that doesn't happen
Latest NewsPackers | Jamaal Williams has decent outing (Sun Nov 19, 04:51 PM) - Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams rushed for 57 yards on 18 carries against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 11. He also caught four passes for 38 yards during the game. Our View: Williams ran hard and finished his runs well, but there just wasn't much there against the Ravens. He still posted RB2 numbers on a feature back workload and Devante Mays fumbled on his first touch to dispel any possibility that he would threaten Williams' role as the starter. Williams will be an RB2/Flex consideration against the Steelers next week.

Our View: Williams looked solid, and ran strong, but struggled behind a banged up offensive line. With Ty Montgomery and Aaron Jones potentially sidelined, Williams could see a lot of work, though the offense is bad enough to where our expectations for production are middling.
