The more and more the off-season progresses, the more Jamaal Williams looks like a value in fantasy football. As Anthony Lynn continues to come out and talk about how both D'Andre Swift and Williams are going to be an integral part of this offense, Williams looks like he could be an absolute steal in drafts this year. Due to the offense, it's unlikely that Williams ever scores enough to push himself into the top-24, but he could be a very valuable depth piece for rosters in 2021. He's not the flashiest player to add in the later rounds, but he's the smart choice. My Very Early Projection: 147-590-4 rushing & 49-366-1 receiving.While Nyheim Hines finished as the RB20 last season, anyone who rostered him in fantasy football knows that he was not exactly the most consistent option week in and week out. Jonathan Taylor should shoulder the majority of the workload for this offense, while Hines sprinkles in behind him and rotates with Marlon Mack. Frank Reich should still continue to utilize multiple RBs in this backfield, but Hines' workload most likely will not be enough to lead to anything more than low-end RB3 weekly production. My Very Early Projection: 49-222-1 rushing & 46-347-2 receiving.

Brad Holmes is the Lions new GM. One of the first moves he made was to go out in free agency and sign Jamaal Williams. Head coach Dan Campbell wants to play smashmouth football. Williams is a better fit for that offense than DeAndre Swift. He's also more durable. I'm not actively looking to draft Lions considering their lack of offensive firepower, but Williams is cheaper and a better value than Swift imo.

Swift flasheingsome durability concern, and OC Lynn called Williams his "grinder " and A Gap guy. Could have sneaky big role while eating in games Swift misses

I'm not sure I'm seeing the allure that some do to Williams as a handcuff in Detroit. Williams isn't a bad running back by any means, but it's more about the offense and their want to use a timeshare at running back. It's the same reason D'Andre Swift is falling into middling RB2 range of drafts - it's not because of his talent. Even if Swift were to miss time, the Lions would likely bring in another running back to share the workload. They already brought Todd Gurley in for a visit, so they clearly haven't taken their minds off adding another running back. Not just that, but it's also likely to be a low-scoring offense, which just doesn't give you a lot of upside/potential.He finished as the RB20 in half PPR formats last year. Crazy, right? While that's firm RB2 territory, he finished as an RB2 or better in just 43.8 percent of his games, tied with Chase Edmonds. He clearly has a role in this offense, though it's a bit reliant on gamescript, as Jonathan Taylor is the clear early-down back, while Hines is the preferred back in passing situations. If they give Taylor more work in the passing game this year, it's coming at the expense of Hines, and knowing Taylor's ADP, drafters expect that increase for Taylor. Even going back to 2019, Hines was an RB3 or better just 43.8 percent of the time, which is more in line for how you should feel about him in 2021. He's just an emergency flex option.

Campbell said he envisions Jamaal WIlliams-D'Andre Swift being a 1-2 punch for the Lions like Alvin Kamara-Mark Ingram were with the Saints.

The Lions have one of the best and deepest offensive lines in football coming into 2021, which is great news for Williams. New OC Anthony Lynn has produced two RB2's or better multiple times in his time with the Chargers, and with almost nowhere else to go to on offense, the offense will run through Swift and Williams, he has even gone as far as to call Williams the "perfect A-back" for the offense. Like the Gordon/Ekeler combos of the past, there should be enough passing game work to spread around Williams should be a key cog in the running attack. Many people are going to be drafting a steal when drafting Williams at ADP this season.
