Saints RB Jamaal Williams (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday s game vs. the Packers. RB Kendre Miller (knee, hamstring) is not listed on the final injury report after practicing all week. The rookie will make his regular-season debut on Sunday, joining RB Tony Jones (and probably Taysom Hill) in the backfield. Miller is an interesting DFS tournament flier but would be a risky season-long play.
Saints RB Jamaal Williams is expected to miss some time with his hamstring injury, HC Dennis Allen said Tuesday. We'll see exactly how long Williams is out, but it sounds like he'll at least miss this Sunday's game vs. the Packers. That's the final game of RB Alvin Kamara's three-game suspension, while rookie RB Kendre Miller is still working back from knee and hamstring injuries. So the Saints could be down to Tony Jones as lead back this weekend. We could also see Taysom Hill play a big role on the ground. He wound up carrying nine times for 75 yards in the Week 2 win over the Panthers.
Fans appeared conflicted on how to feel about the shocking statement said during Sunday s game.
Saints RB Jamaal Williams racked up 18 carries in Sunday's win over the Titans, ceding just 1 RB carry to Tony Jones. Williams managed just 45 yards, though, against a Tennessee defense that ranked among the league's toughest vs. the run in 2022. Williams added just 7 more yards on 2 catches, among 2 targets. Taysom Hill worked in for 3 carries (and just 4 yards) as well, plus 0 catches on 1 target. Williams gets Carolina in Week 2, which was a more neutral matchup for RBs in 2022. A Week 3 spot at Green Bay looks more favorable as well. Williams' Week 1 touch count will keep him in fantasy-starter consideration the next two weeks, in spite of his lackluster production vs. the Titans.
The Saints officially moved Hill back from tight end to quarterback this week, which could be a chess move for the future for an extra roster spot.
