Jamaal Williams, RB (DET)

Ready for lead role

Williams is set to led the Detroit backfield this weekend with D'Andre Swift (shoulder) ruled out for Sunday's game against the Vikings, Benjamin Raven of MLive.com reports.

Williams could be tasked with a heavy workload after finishing with 15 carries and five targets last week, when Swift departed with a shoulder sprain in the second quarter of an eventual 16-14 loss to the Bears. Depth backs Jermar Jefferson and Godwin Igwebuike both picked up a few snaps, but they combined for just two touches (both to Igwebuike), while Williams piled up 20.
