Fantasy Impact:

The second-year running back was already barely hanging onto a roster spot and this could be the injury that leads to his release. The 49ers have Jerick McKinnon and Matt Breida mostly locked into the RB1 and RB2 roles. Behind them, Raheem Mostert and Jeremy McNichols have shined more than Williams in the preseason. The team also signed Alfred Morris who knows Shanahan's system and is a trusted veteran. Williams is not worth a flier if he remains on the 49ers.
