Jamaal Williams Misses Practice Wednesday

Wednesday, September 20, 8:19 PM

As expected, New Orleans Saints running back Jamaal Williams (hamstring) was unable to practice on Wednesday after getting hurt in Monday night's Week 2 win over the Carolina Panthers. The Saints said on Monday that Williams will likely need some time to recover from his injury, so the full expectation is that he will not suit up in Week 3 against the Green Bay Packers on the road. Fantasy managers that had been using the 28-year-old in their starting lineups the first two weeks will need to pivot for at least the next week. Alvin Kamara has one more game on his suspension, so Tony Jones Jr. should lead the Saints' backfield this weekend after scoring two touchdowns on Monday night. However, Taysom Hill (knee) should remain involved, while rookie Kendre Miller (hamstring) is on track to make his NFL debut.

Damien Harris Chips In 33 Yards, Scores In Sunday’s Win

Monday, September 18, 1:45 AM

Buffalo Bills running back Damien Harris ran seven times for 33 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 38-10 win over the Las Vegas Raiders. The 26-year-old most notably plowed into the end zone with the Bills sitting on the ball in the fourth quarter amidst the blowout victory. Harris also continues to see his fair share of high-value touches, keeping him on the fantasy map in games Buffalo is projecting for positive game script. That particular setup was ripe for the picking in this one, and the power back hit paydirt to save an otherwise middling display for "zero-RB" fantasy managers who took the leap of faith in starting him. With Harris well behind James Cook for base work and also sharing red zone totes with incumbent veteran Latavius Murray, he once again resides on the TD-dependent RB3/4 fringe for Week 3's favorable draw against the Washington Commanders.
