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.

Fantasy Impact: DeAngelo Williamsâ€™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.
