Giants RB Andre Williams taking first-team goal line reps


Giants RB Andre Williams taking first-team goal line reps

Williams has been taking the first-team goal line snaps at training camp, according to the New York Daily News. The rookie Williams was drafted by the Giants in the fourth round of the 2014 draft, and looks set to contribute in the goal line package immediately. Williams is currently third in line behind starting Giants RB Rashad Jennings @RashadJennings and RB Peyton Hillis @thepeytonhillis.

Fantasy Analysis:

While Williams is unlikely to have value as a fantasy starter this year, this news does affect the value of Jennings. Jennings has been talked up as a three-down back in the Giants new system. But if he loses the goal line work to another back, his touchdown potential takes a serious hit. Jennings' value was boosted this week with the news that Giants RB David Wilson @4stillRunning may not return to the team this season, but the apparent development of a touchdown vulture on the Giants roster should cause fantasy owners to temper their expectations.
