Dexter Williams signed to futures contract

The Packers signed RB Dexter Williams to a reserve/futures contract.

Fantasy Impact

Williams was the team's sixth round pick from 2019. He could have a role in Green Bay if the Packers move on from both Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams this offseason. However, he only received playing time in one game this season so fantasy managers shouldn't expect much of a workload even if a role materializes.

Dexter Williams out at least three weeks with MCL sprain

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports Packers RB Dexter Williams is out at least three weeks with an MCL sprain.

Fantasy Impact

Williams rushed twice for eight yards before being ruled out of Thursday's Week 9 game against the 49ers. He's a candidate for IR and doesn't have any fantasy value with Aaron Jones back healthy.

Dexter Williams elevated from practice squad prior to TNF

The Packers elevated RB Dexter Williams from the practice squad prior to Thursday Night Football.

Fantasy Impact

Both A.J. Dillon and Jamaal Williams are on the reserve/COVID-19 list, and it's unclear how much Aaron Jones (calf) will be able to play tonight. That leaves (Dexter) Williams and Tyler Ervin as the only two healthy RBs on Green Bay's roster. Consider Williams a desperation FLEX play tonight.

Dexter Williams promoted from practice squad on Saturday

The Green Bay Packers promoted RB Dexter Williams to the 53-man roster on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

While this may seem like an insignificant roster transaction, his promotion could be a sign that starting RB Aaron Jones (game-time decision) may not play. Fantasy managers should view this as a strong signal to find alternative plans if Jones is in your lineup. If Jamaal Williams is already rostered, run to pick up A.J. Dillon ASAP.
