News: 3 days agoWilliams is likely in line for more playing time in the Rams backfield after the team waived Darrell Henderson on Tuesday, Cameron DaSilva of USA Today reports.

Spin: Even before Henderson's departure, Williams had already staked a claim to a steady role in the past two weeks, which coincided with the rookie's return from a stint on injured reserve due to a high-ankle sprain. In losses to the Cardinals and Saints, Williams played a total of 50 snaps, topping both Henderson (38) and Cam Akers (34) in that regard. The rookie has flashed promise with some lengthy gains in limited rushing attempts while also showing off his receiving chops with four catches for 38 yards. Heading into Sunday's game in Kansas City, the Rams could lean on a two-man running back committee featuring Akers as the lead back after he put up a solid 61 rushing yards on just 14 attempts Week 11. However, with the Rams likely to be playing from behind often for the remainder of the season, Williams may be called on for his pass-catching abilities more often than not and may actually be the more desirable back to roster in fantasy leagues.

ESPN Fantasy Projection: Williams was selected by the Rams in the fifth round of April's draft. Williams is undersized, but he's tough and able to align all over the field while contributing as a rusher, receiver and blocker. We saw that in play during his time at Notre Dame, as he reached 200 carries, 35 receptions and 14 TDs each of the last two seasons. Williams impressed after contact (3.6 YAC) and in terms of tackle breaking and elusiveness, but his 4.65 40-yard dash at the combine (83 speed score) is about as poor as it gets for a sub-200-pound back. He also checked in with short arms and was also shaky in the vertical and broad jump. Perhaps Williams will emerge as a Theo Riddick/Dion Lewis type, but that's likely his ceiling.
