2021 Fantasy Outlook
Notre Dame’s backfield situation was up for grabs entering 2020 and many were hyping freshman Chris Tyree, but it was Williams who seized control of the backfield with 246 total touches. Williams peeled off 5.3 YPC behind a great O-line and caught 35 of 48 targets for 313 yards. Notre Dame has question marks elsewhere on offense, losing several offensive linemen and longtime quarterback Ian Book, so this offense could have some growing pains. Williams should be the starter and his pass catching boosts his value, but factors outside of his control could curb his efficiency. Read Past Outlooks
Puts Together Enough on the Ground
November 30, 2021
Williams ran 19 times for 74 yards and two touchdowns in Notre Dame's 45-14 win over Stanford last Saturday on the road.
ANALYSIS
While the output is nice, it was expected to be better against a Cardinal defense that was in the bottom in the country against the run. Williams only averaged 3.9 yards per carry as Notre Dame opted to throw the ball. The junior still surpassed the thousand-yard mark on the ground in the regular season with 1,002 and 14 touchdowns. Overall, Williams accumulated 1,361 total yards and 17 touchdowns.
