The more and more the off-season progresses, the more Jamaal Williams looks like a value in fantasy football. As Anthony Lynn continues to come out and talk about how both D'Andre Swift and Williams are going to be an integral part of this offense, Williams looks like he could be an absolute steal in drafts this year. Due to the offense, it's unlikely that Williams ever scores enough to push himself into the top-24, but he could be a very valuable depth piece for rosters in 2021. He's not the flashiest player to add in the later rounds, but he's the smart choice. My Very Early Projection: 147-590-4 rushing & 49-366-1 receiving.

Jamaal Williams considered an 'A' back by Lions OC Anthony Lynn

Detroit Lions OC Anthony Lynn called Jamaal Williams "a classic 'A' back" during a recent interview.

Fantasy Impact

"Jamaal is what I’d call a classic 'A' back," Lynn said. "I like to break the backs down into A and B. My 'A' backs are normally my bigger backs. They can run between the tackles, block probably a little better than a 'B' back, they can also run the perimeter. I can leave those guys in there for all three downs." This is certainly high praise for the newly signed Williams, and it puts a damper of D'Andre Swift's fantasy value in redraft leagues. Detroit was always going to utilize both backs once they signed Williams, but perhaps fantasy players should exercise more caution when using an early-round pick on Swift. This will be a situation to monitor once training camp rolls around.
