Chargers | San Diego adds Andre Williams

Sun, 04 Sep 2016 10:10:22 -0700

New York Giants RB Andre Williams was claimed off waivers by the San Diego Chargers Sunday, Sept. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Williams will be part of a committee with Melvin Gordon and Danny Woodhead. He likely will have a limited role in the running game and probably can be avoided in a majority of fantasy leagues.

Giants | Andre Williams no longer in NYG's plans

Sat, 03 Sep 2016 14:39:22 -0700

New York Giants RB Andre Williams was released Saturday, Sept. 3.

Fantasy Tip: It's hardly surprising given how thoroughly unproductive Williams has been as a pro, although he deserves kudos for collecting a NFL paycheck for as long as he did with a 3.2 yards-per-carry average over 305 attempts. There's a good chance he may remain a free agent for a while. Rashad Jennings should be locked in as the early-down back for the early part of the season, although rookie Paul Perkins could make some noise later in the year.

Giants | Andre Williams sees first-team reps

Wed, 10 Aug 2016 19:04:06 -0700

New York Giants RB Andre Williams saw first-team reps in practice Wednesday, Aug. 10. Beat writer Jordan Raanan said Williams is in the lead for the No. 2 job behind RB Rashad Jennings.

Fantasy Tip: Williams has been a bit of a disappointment since coming out of Boston College, averaging just 3.2 yards per carry. He is a short-yardage and goal-line type back who is only worth using in the deepest of fantasy leagues, regardless of what the depth chart might say. His touchdown total dipped from seven to one from 2014 to 2015, so it's debatable if Williams will even pop in scoring-only leagues.

Giants | Andre Williams on the hot seat

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 05:41:10 -0700

New York Giants RB Andre Williams likely needs a stellar training camp to avoid being cut, in the opinion of SNY's John Fennelly.

Fantasy Tip: Williams has done very little in his first two seasons. He would need that stellar camp and then some to be worth taking as an RB5 right now.

Giants | Andre Williams drawing praise from coach

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 14:30:40 -0700

New York Giants RB Andre Williams is poised for a bounce-back year in the opinion of head coach Ben McAdoo.

Fantasy Tip: It is unclear exactly what McAdoo means by "bounce-back year" for Williams, whose best season was averaging 3.3 yards per carry as a rookie in 2014. Williams reportedly dropped weight in the offseason, but he has no business stealing reps from Rashad Jennings or rookie Paul Perkins unless he has completely transformed his running style. Consider him an extreme longshot to be a fantasy factor in 2016.

Giants | Orleans Darkwa playing catch-up

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 19:21:53 -0700

New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa (leg) missed the entire spring practice sessions due to a lower leg injury, and that set him back in the pecking order among the team's tailbacks. He is expected to battle RB Andre Williams for the No. 3 job, while RB Bobby Rainey is also in the mix. The team invested a fifth round pick on RB Paul Perkins, so he is expected to make the team, too.

Fantasy Tip: The winner of the No. 3 job will be behind Rashad Jennings and Shane Vereen on the depth chart, so they can mostly be avoided in all fantasy leagues initially.

Giants | Andre Williams fighting for spot?

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 13:35:03 -0700

New York Giants RBs Andre Williams and Orleans Darkwa are likely competing with each other for a roster spot, according to Paul Schwartz of the New York Post.

Fantasy Tip: Williams hasn't played to his full potential in his first two seasons, but he did have a solid rookie campaign two years ago. Darkwa hasn't really done much in New York, and he may be the odd man out. Williams is the more intriguing fantasy option, but even he should be viewed as a late-round flier.
