2023 Season Outlooks

Williams will attempt to hold off sixth-round pick Zach Evans and UDFA Tiyon Evans for the RB2 job in behind Cam Akers. Akers' injury history suggests whoever is in that role could get some run in 2023, which would make them a reasonable pick in the double-digit rounds of deeper Fantasy leagues. Injuries derailed Williams' first season in the pros but it's worth remembering that he produced 2,799 yards from scrimmage and 31 touchdowns in his final two seasons at Notre Dame. Williams won't even turn 23 until the end of August, so he's close to a must-hold in Dynasty unless he has a disastrous camp and falls behind both of the Evanses.

The Rams selected Williams in the fifth round of the 2022 draft. The Notre Dame product generated some preseason hype but suffered an injury on special teams in Week 1 and failed to stand out in 10 games upon his return. Williams ended up with 215 yards on 44 touches and barely saw the field down the stretch while Cam Akers handled the feature back role. Williams was extremely effective with the Fighting Irish, but he hurt his stock with a 4.65 40-yard dash at the 2022 combine (83 speed score), which is about as poor as it gets for a sub-200-pound back. Perhaps the 23-year-old will make a leap in Year 2 (only Akers is ahead of him on the depth chart), but he's worth no more than a late flier in deep leagues.
