Jamaal Williams considered an 'A' back by Lions OC Anthony Lynn

Detroit Lions OC Anthony Lynn called Jamaal Williams "a classic 'A' back" during a recent interview.

Fantasy Impact

"Jamaal is what I’d call a classic 'A' back," Lynn said. "I like to break the backs down into A and B. My 'A' backs are normally my bigger backs. They can run between the tackles, block probably a little better than a 'B' back, they can also run the perimeter. I can leave those guys in there for all three downs." This is certainly high praise for the newly signed Williams, and it puts a damper of D'Andre Swift's fantasy value in redraft leagues. Detroit was always going to utilize both backs once they signed Williams, but perhaps fantasy players should exercise more caution when using an early-round pick on Swift. This will be a situation to monitor once training camp rolls around.

Jamaal Williams and Lions reach agreement on two-year deal

RB Jamaal Williams and the Lions have reached agreement on a two-year, $7.5 million contract.

Fantasy Impact

Williams acknowledged that he would not be returning to the Packers after Green Bay signed RB Aaron Jones to a four-year extension. He became a free agent and ultimately landed a two-year deal with the Lions. Williams logged 119 carries for 505 yards while hauling in 31 receptions for 236 yards and three touchdowns across 14 games for the Packers. The 25-year-old bolsters the Lions backfield and will compliment breakout RB D’Andre Swift.

Jamaal Williams acknowledges he won’t be returning to Green Bay

Free agent and former Packers RB Jamaal Williams acknowledged Monday that he would not be returning to the Packers in wake of Aaron Jones’ new four-year extension.

Fantasy Impact

Williams stated, “it’s just sad that we (he and Jones) won’t be able to play together again.” Williams is surely on the move, but his next destination is still unknown. Look for an announcement on Williams’ next team sometime this week as free agency has unofficially kicked off.

Jamaal Williams has 45 all-purpose yards in Championship round

Packers RB Jamaal Williams rushed seven times for 23 yards and had four receptions for 22 yards in Sunday's Championship round loss to the Bucs.

Fantasy Impact

Williams is set to hit free agency and his landing spot will play a factor in determining his value for the 2021 fantasy season. He'll likely be a high-value handcuff/low-end FLEX wherever he ends up.
