Javonte Williams Gains 58 Yards On 14 Touches

Monday, September 18, 12:20 AM

Denver Broncos running back Javonte Williams didn't do anything overly impressive in the 35-33 loss to the visiting Washington Commander in Week 2 on Sunday in Denver, but he did have 10 more carries than backup Samaje Perine and rookie Jaleel McLaughlin combined. Williams finished with 12 carries for 44 yards (3.7 yards per carry) and caught two of his three targets for an additional 14 yards through the air. Fantasy managers didn't really have much to show for the 23-year-old, but he's also being eased into the offense coming off last year's ACL and LCL tears and was facing a tough defensive line. Williams remains more of an RB3/flex for now, but he should have more fantasy upside as the season progresses and he starts to see even more work as Denver's bell-cow back.

Zach Charbonnet Third On Seahawks Depth Chart

Friday, September 8, 5:23 PM

Second-round draft pick Zach Charbonnet will make his regular-season debut when the Seattle Seahawks take on the Los Angeles Rams on September 10. The UCLA standout was drafted by the Seahawks on the heels of Kenneth Walker III's 1000-yard rookie season, putting Seattle's depth chart under scrutiny throughout the preseason. Walker was a limited participant in preseason activities thanks to a lingering groin injury, which added to the speculation that Charbonnet would be challenging for the primary role. Walker was cleared from the Seahawks' injury report on Friday and is expected to play in the season opener on Sunday, with DeeJay Dallas second on the team's depth chart. With Charbonnet's upside suddenly curbed, fantasy managers should scale back expectations if they choose to start him in Week 1.
