Travis Etienne Jr. Still A High-End RB1 Vs. Texans

Wednesday, September 20, 9:52 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Travis Etienne Jr. gets a sweet Week 3 matchup against the Texans after disappointing fantasy owners last Sunday. Etienne opened the season on a positive note with 21.4 PPR points in Week 1, but stalled last game in an all-around disappointing effort from the entire Jags offense. The Houston defense has been the cure-all for running back woes the past couple of years and that hasn't changed through two games. Fantasy afterthought Zack Moss ran for 88 yards and a touchdown (4.9 YPC) on them last week, so Etienne owners should be salivating at the potential for an eruption in this one. Lock in the former first-round pick as a top-five back this week.

Javonte Williams News

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.
