Jamaal Williams unprecedented scoring streak continues in win

Jamaal Williams had 11 carries for 35 yards and one touchdown as Detroit downed the Jaguars 40-14 in Week 13.

Fantasy Impact

Williams scored on the ground in the fourth straight game on Sunday, sending his season total to 14. He has been the NFL leader in that category for the entire season and has not slowed down whatsoever. Fellow backfield mate D'Andre Swift did cut into Williams' playing time significantly on Sunday, and the Detroit backfield will continue to be a timeshare moving forward. That said, Williams has proven doubters wrong all season long, and as long as he continues scoring touchdowns, he needs to remain a staple in fantasy lineups everywhere.

Jamaal Williams rushes for a touchdown in Week 12

Jamaal Williams took 18 carries for 66 yards and a touchdown on Thursday against the Bills.

Fantasy Impact

As per usual, Williams was able to pick up a short-yardage touchdown which was the first score of the game. He also lost a fumble. He isn't seeing any role in the passing game, but he is still the clear early down workhorse for the Lions. Williams will remain a RB2 play moving forward.

Jamaal Williams rushes for three touchdowns in Week 11 win

Jamaal Williams carried the ball 17 times for 64 rushing yards and three touchdowns in the Lions' 31-18 Week 11 win over the Giants.

Fantasy Impact

Williams once again was the primary ball carrier as part of a Detroit backfield also involving Justin Jackson and D'Andre Swift, averaging a solid 3.8 yards per carry and continuing to see key carries near the goal line. The veteran running back faces a much tougher test in Week 12 against a stout Buffalo Bills defensive front but continues to see the majority of the volume out of the backfield under head coach Dan Campbell, making him a solid RB2 with goal line carry upside.

Jamaal Williams (illness) cleared for Week 11

Jamaal Williams (illness) practiced in full for the second consecutive day and has officially been removed from the Lions' injury report. He'll suit up against the Giants on Sunday, barring a setback.

Fantasy Impact

Williams has outperformed expectations this season, vulturing opportunities and touchdowns from D'Andre Swift left and right. The 27-year-old has 661 scrimmage yards and a whopping nine scores thus far. He should be viewed as a strong RB2 option in Week 11.

Jamaal Williams (illness) returns to practice on Thursday

Jamaal Williams (illness) returned to Lions' practice on Thursday after missing Wednesday due to an illness.

Fantasy Impact

Williams should be good to go on Sunday against a middle-of-the-pack Giants run defense. D'Andre Swift was more involved last Sunday, but Williams still dominated the rushing attempts. Another time-share is likely again this week, which limits both to flex options.
