Giants RB Andre Williams scores in Hall of Fame game

Rookie Giants RB Andre Williams scored late in the first quarter of the NFL's preseason-opening Hall of Fame game Sunday night. Williams capped the Giants' drive with a 3-yard, between-the-tackles run. Williams racked up 48 yards on seven carries, including a 21-yard jaunt that set up the touchdown.

Fantasy Analysis:

We'll likely see Williams' draft stock skyrocket in the next week or so, as fantasy owners run through the typical early-season overreactions. Remember that the drive took place against the Bills' second string defense. Still, the 5-foot-11, 230-pound Williams was impressive, showing burst and decisiveness in his limited opportunities. Starting RB Rashad Jennings @RashadJennings had 23 yards on seven carries, and caught three passes for 20 yards. Jennings should still be considered the dominant rusher in the New York backfield. But based on Williams' effectiveness tonight, Jennings may be sharing the workload a bit more than we thought previously. WIth RB David WIlson dealing with a potentially career-ending neck injury, Williams will battle veteran Peyton Hillis @thepeytonhillis for the No. 2 job in New York. Williams is going undrafted in the average fantasy league. Expect that to change in the coming week.
