RB - WAS
This Week Outlook
Jonathan Williams rushed once for five yards and brought in all four of his targets for 21 yards in the Lions’ 41-25 loss to the Texans on Thursday.
He also lost a fumble. Williams saw some work in this one with D'Andre Swift out of action, though it will be tough for Williams to find the field once Swift returns.
Ben Standig of The Athletic reports that the Washington Football Team is signing RB Jonathan Williams.
It's another option for Washington with Bryce Love going on injured reserve. Williams was a 2016 fifth-round pick of the Bills. He has some moments with the Colts in 2019 but has otherwise been a journeyman.
The Detroit Lions are releasing RB Jonathan Williams.
The journeyman out of Arkansas had his best season in 2019 with the Colts, averaging 4.8 yards per carry on his way to 235 yards and a score. He’s likely to rejoin the Lions on their practice squad.
The Detroit Lions have signed running back Jonathan Williams. Williams played for the Indianapolis Colts last season and started two games due to injuries to other running backs.
Williams is unlikely to see much playing time with the Lions, as D'Andre Swift and Kerryon Johnson will have the majority of touches at running back. Williams is a depth piece for the Lions and won't be fantasy relevant unless there is an injury to the Lions' backfield.
Jonathan Williams didn’t record a touch in the Colts' Week 14 loss to the Buccaneers by a 38-35 score.
Jonathan Williams looks like he is on the outside looking in on the Colts rotation at running back with Marlon Mack back on the field. The veteran running back can be dropped in most fantasy formats.
