Recent Stats and Projections
Recent Game Summaries
2016 Week 17 vs NYJ (4 / 11 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Jonathan Williams received some carries at the end of the game in order to see what he can do for the Bills next season. However, he didn't have many opportunities and the Jets defense was good at collapsing on him. His first carry displayed good vision to find the hole and good speed up the middle of the field. But he was stopped on and his 2nd and 4th carries with his 3rd carry being a fumble. The Bills have seen nothing special from Williams in limited time this year.
2016 Week 15 vs CLE (3 / 10 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Jonathan Williams only came into the game when it was a blowout. He was never able to push Mike Gillislee out of the #2 spot.
2016 Week 12 vs JAX (3 / 12 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Jonathan Williams only received a few carries spotting LeSean McCoy. Most notably, Williams got the call on a 4th and 1 in which he used a good-sized hole to convert mostly untouched. With limited touches, Williams did not show any significant qualities either positive or negative. Even with the #2 back Mike Gillislee out, Williams is not pushing for increased playing time though that is at least partly a function of how well McCoy is doing.
2016 Week 11 vs CIN (4 / 26 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 0 / 0 rec)
Jonathan Williams operated as Mike Gillislee's back-up in the second half. Williams showed some good toughness on inside runs and did not shy away from first contact. Williams had a long run of nine yards when he followed the block of a pulling guard on a trap play. Williams has good vision for a larger runner and was willing to go inside to pick up tough yardage.
2016 Week 8 vs NE (5 / 12 / 1 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Jonathan Williams took over the carries in garbage time. He was fairly slow on his carries and was unable to push few defenders when contacted. However, his end-of-game TD showed a nice jump to hit a small hole. He may be a talented player but cannot take meaningful carries even with LeSean McCoy out. He will not be relevant this season.
2016 Week 6 vs SF (5 / 21 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Jonathan Williams came into the game during garbage time. He showed decent speed getting through a hole and getting to the edge but he did have a fumble in his limited carries. Rex Ryan gave him the ball in the next possession but fumbling in that situation cannot be good for Williams' stock.
2016 Week 3 vs ARI (3 / 2 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Jonathan Williams came in on the Bills last drive of the game in order to give LeSean McCoy a rest in what was essentially garbage time. He ran three times and gained two net yards running up the middle. Unless he can start making plays with very limited snaps, he will be of no use to this offense.
