ESPN Fantasy Projection: Williams signed with the Saints following a breakout 2022 season in which he led the NFL with 17 rushing touchdowns. The veteran back easily set career highs across the board as a rusher, including an absurd 28 carries inside the opponent's 5-yard line (no other player had more than 20). On the flip side, Williams was a nonfactor as a receiver (73 yards on 16 targets), which led to extremely inconsistent fantasy output. Now 28 years old, Williams is expected to work as an early-down and short-yardage complement to Alvin Kamara. Of course, with Kamara set to serve a three-game suspension, Williams will open the season in more of a featured role, with Kendre Miller also involved. Williams is well worth mid-round consideration, though he's unlikely to be a starting option once Kamara returns in Week 4.
