Steelers | DeAngelo Williams unsure of workload

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 11:31:54 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB DeAngelo Williams isn't sure how often he'll be used in training camp or in the first few games of the season yet. RB Le'Veon Bell's fate is tied to his three-game suspension that lies in limbo. Williams said he'll be ready for whatever he's asked to do.

Fantasy Tip: Williams is expected to be the Steelers' starting running back for at least the first game of the season. Whatever happens after that is yet to be decided. He could be a useful handcuff selection for those who draft Bell.

Steelers | DeAngelo Williams busy as backup

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 17:39:07 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB DeAngelo Williams said he "absolutely" received enough work as the backup during the first day of training camp Sunday, July 26, and he expects to be ready to start Week 1 if RB Le'Veon Bell is suspended.

Fantasy Tip: Bell is still waiting to appeal his suspension, but Williams will likely have to start for at least a couple of games. He will have short-term value at FantasyScore while Bell is sidelined, and in seasonal leagues, Bell owners should try to grab Williams as an insurance policy.

Steelers | DeAngelo Williams being challenged

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 17:11:31 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB DeAngelo Williams is not receiving any first-team reps despite RB Le'Veon Bell facing a three-game suspension, head coach Mike Tomlin said. Tomlin also said he is challenging Williams in ways that are uncomfortable for a 10-year veteran.

Fantasy Tip: It seems pretty clear that Williams is only going to have a worthwhile role in the offense while Bell is suspended or if he misses time for another reason. If you draft Bell, consider adding Williams as an insurance policy.

Steelers | DeAngelo Williams slims down

Thu, 16 Jul 2015 12:18:47 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB DeAngelo Williams has lost some weight this offseason since head coach Mike Tomlin asked Williams to report to training camp at 220 pounds or less. Williams said he is currently at the target weight after working with a nutritionist this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Williams will fill in as the starter while Le'Veon Bell serves his suspension. Williams could be a short-term option for fantasy owners since he will see limited playing time after Bell returns.

Free-agent RB DeAngelo Williams (Panthers) will sign with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Steelers | DeAngelo Williams meeting with PIT

Wed, 11 Mar 2015 09:07:29 -0700

Free-agent RB DeAngelo Williams (Panthers) is scheduled to meet with the Pittsburgh Steelers Friday, March 13, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Williams was limited to only six games this past season because of injuries and posted only 219 rushing yards and zero touchdowns. Williams likely would be the primary backup in Pittsburgh if he signs but could receive a few starts if Le'Veon Bell is suspended for his arrest. Williams probably would be an option in later rounds of fantasy drafts.

Panthers | DeAngelo Williams officially cut

Tue, 10 Mar 2015 14:35:40 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams was officially released Tuesday, March 10.

Fantasy Tip: Williams is on the wrong side of 30 and has plenty of injury concerns, so he won't sign with a team that will give him a lead-back role. Expect Williams to be nothing more than a late-round flier in fantasy football drafts this fall to round out your running back depth. Stay tuned on where he signs.
