Running back DeAngelo Williams has signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers. He will be the backup to Le'veon Bell, who led the AFC last year with 1,361 yards. Williams will be a key change of pace back for the Steelers to give Bell a break when needed. (Source: Pittsburgh Tribune Review
Fantasy Impact: The Carolina Panthers ran a two running back system with DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart, so their fantasy value would waver week to week. Neither guy was a solid play week to week, and nothing will change when Williams come to Pittsburgh. Williams is a great addition to the Steelers as a football team, but Williams will not be a great fantasy option because he is riding shotgun to Pro Bowler Le'veon Bell. If there is an injury to Bell at any point in the season or Bell gets suspended for any amount of time due to drug possession charges, Williams will be a great waiver wire addition once the season begins.

Williams told WBTV in an exclusive interview on Monday that he was cut by the Panthers last week during a meeting with coach Ron Rivera and general manager Dave Gettleman. A team spokesperson said Williams has not officially been released and that no transaction is expected on Monday. (Source: ESPN
Fantasy Impact: At the ripe age of 32, Williams' career as a RB is nearing an end whether he is officially cut by the Panthers or not. It's hard to imagine Williams becoming a workhorse for any team at this point of his career, the biggest beneficiary out of this will be Jonathan Stewart who finished the year strong and for the first time, won't have any immediate competition for carries.

DeAngelo Williams received the start in Thursday's loss to the Saints. He ran the ball 8 times for 20 yards and added 1 catch for 30 yards.
Fantasy Impact: The Panthers are back to the dreaded RBBC. Williams will have little fantasy value with Stewart around, and vice versa. Fantasy players should not count on any consistent value from Williams and should look elsewhere.

Coach Ron Rivera said today that DeAngelo looked good in practice and also said he was actually ahead of schedule. Despite Jonathan Stewart's 4.9 yards per carry in Week 8, Coach Rivera has named DeAngelo the starter for Week 9. (Source: Jeff Darlington on Twitter
Fantasy Impact: DeAngelo Williams was a limited participant in practice Monday and Tuesday and should be a full participant on Wednesday. After 8 weeks the Saints defense is giving up the 11th most fantasy points and 6th most receiving yards to running backs.

Deangelo Williams returns to the Panthers lineup as the unquestioned featured back with Tolbert and Stewart out with injury. While it seems Williams will get a heavy workload, it doesn't mean he is a great play. The highest output by a RB this season against the Ravens is Le'Veon Bell with only 59 yards and no TD's.
Fantasy Impact: While Williams will undoubtedly get heavy touches, his outlook against a stout Ravens run D isn't good. Especially considering he is coming back from a thigh injury. I see Williams as a low end RB2 play this week.

DeAngelo Williams was inactive this past week, leading to playing time for Jonathan Stewart and Mike Tolbert. It did not end well for them. Tolbert is now on the IR/designated to return list and Stewart has a sprained knee that will likely cost him a month of time. (Source: Joe Person on Twitter
Fantasy Impact: DWill has shown that, with opportunity, he can produce. He was a solid RB2 to start last year with Stewart out. Now Stewart and Tolbert are both gone, leaving DWill staring at a potential workhorse situation. Throw in that Newton isn't running with his busted ankle and Dwill looks primed for fantasy glory.

Ed Werder of ESPN reports that Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams 'did some running today, but still has pain. Barring unexpected improvement, he's not likely to pay Sunday vs. Lions.' (Source: Ed Werder on Twitter
Fantasy Impact: DeAngelo Williams’s owners need to make other plans for Sunday. Jonathan Stewart and Mike Tolbert will see a spike in touches and Stewart makes for an interesting flex play in PPR.
