From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Nov 20): Williams was signed off of the Denver practice squad and reunited with his college position coach with the Saints. They have the most productive backfield in the league and Williams could have value if one of the Saints top two backs go down.

Week 12: at Los Angeles Rams

All RB vs LAR

FBG says: Good matchup. This Saints backfield is statistically one of the best in football as they lead the league with 4.8 yards per rush attempt and 15 rushing touchdowns. Mark Ingram has just gone absolutely nuts since the departure of Adrian Peterson after their Week 5 bye. Ingram has yet to have a game below 75 rushing yards over this six-game span, with four of those games over 100 rushing yards and his last two games over 130 rushing yards. Ingram did not have a single touchdown through the first four weeks of the season, but he now leads the league in rushing touchdowns with eight, all coming in the last six weeks. Alvin Kamara has been a very solid piece of this backfield as well, averaging 6.6 yards per rush attempt in the last six weeks with three rushing touchdowns himself while contributing in a big way in the passing game simultaneously. The Rams defensive front underperformed yet again last week as they let the Vikings rush for 171 yards on 35 attempts against them last week, including 95 yards and two rushing touchdowns to lead back Latavius Murray. Michael Brockers and Aaron Donald are really the only two players that are making any difference against the run for this defense. The Rams linebackers have struggled to bottle up running backs that slip past these two interior defenders. Mark Barron had a very rough game last week as he missed a few tackles at the second level that allowed big runs to ensue. Big plays have been a problem all season for the Rams as they are allowing 4.5 rushing yards per attempt and have now given up a handful of 50+ yard rushes on the year. The Saints have been one of the best rushing offenses in football, so look for them to excel against this Rams defense allowing the third most fantasy points per game to opposing running backs.
