With so many question marks at running back this week, Williams is a must-play because of the volume share he is guaranteed to see at home versus Detroit.

Assuming the featured role without Aaron Jones, Williams garnered 156 total yards on 21 touches and 84 snaps. He likely won't have a benefit of an overtime shootout against the Lions, who have fortified their rushing defense with Damon Harrison. Yet he's a low-floor RB2 who has taken two of seven red-zone handoffs to the house in the last two games while drawing 14 targets.

With Aaron Jones (knee) done, Jamaal Williams played on 85-of-90 snaps. Handled all 15 RB carries and had 17% target share.

Williams had a huge week filling in for the injured RB Aaron Jones and he should close the season on a solid not with another big game against the Lions.
