Jamaal Williams Contributed as a Spot Starter in Fantasy

SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND

Jamaal Williams had an OK fantasy season if you were expecting to have him on the bench and only start in certain weeks. He was the #236 ranked fantasy player this season and the #46 RB. His ranking drops to the #64 ranked RB when basing it on average fantasy points. He was trending up for the season. In his first 5 games he averaged 5.2 FPs. He improved to 7.4 in his final 6 games. Given his youth, he should be able to continue showing improvement next season. Using standard deviation as an indicator of consistency, Williams is relatively inconsistent capable of very high highs and equally low lows. He averaged 5.5 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 22 fantasy points.
