Last season in the early going, Jamaal Williams was the understudy to D'Andre Swift, which is a role he will reprise this season. In Weeks 1-7, he averaged 12.4 touches and 58.7 total yards per game playing 29-49% of snaps per game. He was the RB37 in fantasy points per game. When Swift was out and Williams was active, he played 42-47% of snaps with 18 rushing attempts and 74 rushing yards per game. Williams isn't the sexiest handcuff or late-round selection, but the Lions' offense should take another step forward this year, and Williams will be the primary back if Swift were to miss time again.
