Williams was a difference maker for fantasy owners last season generating 1,274 total yards and scoring 11 touchdowns after Le'Veon Bell suffered a season-ending injury. He is an RB1 for the first three weeks of the season as Bell serves his suspension. Given Bell's injury history Williams remains one of the most valuable running back handcuffs in fantasy football.

DeAngelo Williams 'not expected' to return in 2017

Pittsburgh Steelers beat writer Ed Bouchette does not expect the team to re-sign running back DeAngelo Williams this offseason.

Fantasy Impact

Williams' contract is expiring this offseason, making him a free agent. If Pittsburgh elects against re-signing the 33-year-old running back, they will be in need of a backup for Le'Veon Bell. As Bell is prone to injury and off the field issues that result in suspensions, Pittsburgh's No. 2 running back must have the ability to effectively fill the void in the event the former is sidelined. Expect the Steelers to address the position of need in the draft.
