Fantasy Impact:

Williams, the 49ers' fourth-round pick in April's draft, is headed to IR with an ankle injury. However, despite an offseason full of hype -- he was rumored to be the rusher who out-seats Carlos Hyde for the starting job -- he was expected to open 2017 as the team's RB3. UDFA Matt Brieda out-played Williams in training camp and in the preseason, ultimately emerging as the RB2. Williams could be dropped in all redraft fantasy formats but should be held in dynasty leagues.
