One of the most well-rounded backs in this draft class. Fantastic vision in between the tackles and almost seems to know what gap a linebacker is going to occupy before they do. Displays a good balance of being able to pause and wait for a gap to open or hit the hole immediately if he knows it's going to be there. Good vertical burst. Able to accelerate quickly and is near impossible to bring down once he has momentum. However, he struggles when asked to go horizontal and then accelerate. This might be the one major "flaw" in his game that if he is able to fix this and learn how to explode vertically from a stopped horizontal jump, he might become one of the best backs in the league. He's able to change direction horizontally well if he's in the open field. However, when he's asked to change direction in small spaces, he struggles to accelerate again and the windows close. Incredible power for a back of his size. Constantly embraces contact and bounces off of tacklers. Possesses good top-end speed. He won't blow people away at the Combine, but he has more than enough top-end speed to succeed in the NFL. Unlikely that he'll ever break away any 60+ yard runs due to just his speed, but he can break away and pick up chunk gains. Almost unbelievable contact balance. If a defender is able to bring him down on first contact, they deserve an award. Consistently able to keep his feet under him and continue on no matter what obstacle is in his way. Excellent pass-catcher out of the backfield. Utilized heavily in this fashion at North Carolina and succeeded in this role. Mismatch on linebackers running routes of the backfield. Good in pass protection as well. Able to identify his man quickly and not afraid to step in and embrace contact. Doesn't possess the ELITE athleticism that will push him up into the top-40 of the NFL Draft, but he's going to be an excellent addition to a NFL offense later on. If he lands in the right spot, he can be a top-15 fantasy running back from day one.

Javonte Williams has over 100 all-purpose yards in Week 12

Broncos RB Javonte Williams rushes 14 times for 54 yards and a touchdown and has three receptions for 57 yards in Sunday's win over the Chargers.

Fantasy Impact

Coming out of the bye, fantasy managers were hoping this would be the week that Williams took over the lead role in Denver, but that wasn't the case. Although more productive, he was out-touched by Melvin Gordon 17-to-18. He remains a viable FLEX option, but his ceiling is still lowered due to the split workload. Nevertheless, Williams has a solid matchup in Week 13 against a Chiefs D/ST that's middle of the pack against the run.
