Mike Tagliere
He kind of walked into a few touchdowns last week, though that's what happens when you play on a high-scoring offense. The best news for Williams wasn't the touchdowns, though. He played 59-of-61 snaps in that game, which amounts to 96.7 percent. There was no other game this year where he played more than 73.2 percent of the snaps. LeSean McCoy and Darwin Thompson combined for just two snaps. Williams is the workhorse running back on a team that's projected for nearly 30 points. The Titans haven't been a very giving team on the ground this year, and they showed that against the Ravens, holding the Mark Ingram/Gus Edwards duo to 42 scoreless yards on nine carries last week. They aren't a complete lockdown team, though. There have been seven different running backs who have tallied 100-plus total yards against them, and another two who finished with 96 and 92 yards. It's worth noting that among all nine of those running backs, eight of them totaled at least 17 touches, so volume is necessary. While that may have been something to worry about in the past with Williams, his snap counts last week suggest otherwise. Outside of Henry, you're going to have to decide between Williams and Aaron Jones as the only other running backs who are locked into 80-plus percent of the workload on their teams in this slate, which means Williams has cash-game appeal - though you're not choosing him over Henry, and it's a close call with him and Jones. He's obviously in play for tournaments.The Packers continued to use Jones in a workhorse role last week, as he tallied 23 touches while Williams received just two of them. Over the last two games, Jones has played 84 and 85 percent of the snaps, which are numbers he didn't reach at all during Weeks 1-16. The results have been great, too. Over the last five games, Jones has racked-up 612 total yards and seven touchdowns. The downside is that the 49ers had his number the last time they played, as he totaled just 38 yards on 13 carries and didn't catch a single pass. There were just two running backs (Kenyan Drake, Christian McCaffrey) who totaled more than 89 yards on the ground against the 49ers this year, and they allowed just seven total touchdowns to the position. The 0.69 PPR points per opportunity they allowed to running backs ranked fourth-best, though it helps they were one of only two teams who didn't allow a single receiving touchdown to them. The 1.17 PPR points per target was the lowest mark in the league. If there's somewhere Jones is going to get it done, it's on the ground, as they did allow a healthy 4.21 yards per carry, which is essentially the league average. The issue with relying on that is due to the fact that running backs have averaged just 18.9 carries per game against them, so if there's any hint of him sharing work, it's going to be crippling to his projection. Jones is in the cash-game conversation with Damien Williams as your sidekick to Derrick Henry, though you're not going to be able to fit all three in a lineup.

Tennessee was 18th against fantasy backs, but Williams could be a star this weekend in a game that is likely to be a shootout.Jones had two rushing touchdowns in the divisional round and he is the player the Packers need to establish on offense to win the NFC Championship.
