Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Aaron Jones appears to be on the wrong side of questionable, if he misses a second straight game, Williams would be a RB2 against the Vikings 26th ranked fantasy running back defense. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
If he sits, Williams would become a must-play option again. Williams has been more involved in the offense recently and he delivered last week in Jones' absence. If Jones suits up this week, Williams should be viewed as a high-end RB3 that will provide more value in Full PPR formats. If Jones sits, Williams moves to a top-12 option. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It seemed like Jones was close to playing last week, though I'm guessing the matchup allowed them to play it safe. For now, we'll assume he plays this week. Williams did a great job in his place last week, racking up 24 of the 29 running back opportunities in the Packers backfield. He's clearly someone they've started to fall back in love with, and it's likely he's carved out a real role alongside Jones even when healthy. Jones is used in a different role than most running backs and has four targets that have gone 20-plus yards down the field despite only playing in five games. How rare is that for a running back? There are just four other running backs who've seen more than one such target. The matchup with the Vikings is one that Jones has absolutely smashed over the last couple years. Oddly enough, the Vikings have allowed the eighth-fewest PPR points per opportunity this year, though there's been plenty of volume to make up for that, as they've faced a massive 31.5 running back touches per game. If Jones plays, you have to plug him in as an RB1 but don't be surprised if Williams into his touches a bit. Williams should be viewed as a high-end RB4 if Jones plays but should be considered a must-play low-end RB1 if Jones were held out again.
