Jamaal Williams, RB (DET)

Sees 20 touches in relief of Swift

Williams rushed 15 times for 65 yards while securing five of five targets for 18 yards during Thursday's 16-14 loss to Chicago.

D'Andre Swift (shoulder) exited for good in the first quarter and Williams went on to handle his largest workload of the season. Even though a 19-yard scamper probably made his final stat line look more efficient than it really was, Williams barely shared any of the remaining work with fellow backups Godwin Igwebuike or Jermar Jefferson. Should Swift need to miss Detroit's Week 13 matchup with Minnesota, Williams could be in store for a heavy workload against a Vikings defense that has been middle-of-the-pack in terms of fantasy points allowed to running backs in 2021.
