Jamaal Williams Slated To Work In Behind Kamara

Friday, November 3, 10:36 AM

New Orleans Saints running back Jamaal Williams has played a secondary role to Alvin Kamara since returning from the IR in Week 7, as he has averaged just six touches a game. That role should not change in Week 9, and Williams remains a handcuff option for Kamara. In truly desperate situations, he can be fired up as a touchdown-dependent flex option due to the run-funnel nature of the Bears' defense and the potential of this game getting out of hand. Williams is a very risky play, given that he likely won't see significant enough volume to warrant a productive fantasy game.

Elijah Mitchell Still A Mere Stash In Week 13

Saturday, December 2, 3:39 AM

San Francisco 49ers running back Elijah Mitchell carried the football seven times for 39 yards in the team's 31-13 Thanksgiving day defeat of the Seattle Seahawks. Over the past six games, Mitchell has 25 carries for 84 yards, an average of 3.4 yards per tote. Only 12 of those carries have come outside of garbage time and he's only been targeted twice in the passing game. Mitchell also remains stuck on zero touchdowns for the year. Christian McCaffrey's continued workhorse role means that Mitchell remains unplayable this week at Philadelphia but fantasy managers who have clinched a playoff berth and have a potential weakness at RB or FLEX would be wise to stash Mitchell in case McCaffrey misses time.
