2015 Outlook: Bust (overvalued)

Last updated on Aug-20-2015 by Shawn Childs


Williams had a tough year in 2014 due to thigh, ankle and hand injuries. He missed 10 games and averaged only 3.5 yards per carry when he was on the field. He also posted a measly five catches. It's been five years since DeAngelo has been fantasy relevant. To steal a line from Toby Keith, the Steelers know Williams can't be as good as he once was, but they are hoping he can be as good once (actually thrice) as he ever was. For a 32-year-old NFL running back, Williams has relatively low mileage on his wheels (1,432 carries in his nine-year career). He will have fantasy value only in the weeks when Bell is out of the lineup, so it's tough to own him as anything more than a handcuff.
