2018 Fantasy Outlook
Williams failed to make much of an impression during his three seasons on a South Carolina team that wasn't exactly brimming with offensive talent. He transferred to Arkansas as a senior and led the Razorbacks with 827 yards from scrimmage and 10 total touchdowns. What he lacks in college production, he might make up for in experience with pro concepts, as former offensive coordinator Dan Enos previously mentored NFL-bound backs including Alex Collins, Thomas Rawls and Javon Ringer. Williams' size, 4.5 speed and bruising style of play also appealed to a Broncos squad that has struggled in generating yards after contact. Read Past Outlooks

Waived by Jaguars
RBFree Agent
May 9, 2019
Williams was waived by the Jaguars on Thursday, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.
The Jaguars continue to clear room for rookie signings in advance of Friday's opening day of minicamp. A 2018 seventh-rounder out of Arkansas, Williams logged only eight carries his first year but nonetheless finished with a respectable 4.5-yard average. He should be able to find another opportunity elsewhere.
