With D'Andre Swift due to miss time, Williams will be Detroit's horse, with Craig Reynolds factoring in some. Williams is coming off a week where he played 45% of the snaps, logging 22 touches and 107 total yards (two touchdowns) as the RB3 in fantasy. Williams has seen 78.6% of the team's carries inside the red zone and 88.9% of the work inside the ten, so there shouldn't be any debate on who is Detroit's goal line back with Swift out. It has been and will continue to be Williams. Williams is a top 12 running back this week against Seattle. The Seahawks are tenth in rushing success rate, fifth in explosive run rate, and sixth in fantasy points per game allowed to running backs. Williams should also load up on receptions against a team that's 26th in DVOA against receiving backs giving up the sixth-most receptions and fourth-most receiving yards. Works in his favor that a large chunk of the team's target share (31%) is up for grabs without St. Brown in the lineup.
