Carnell Williams is a player many feel will finally get back to form in 2010. He has had to overcome some serious injuries, and seemed last season to finally show the talents that put him over 1100 yards his first year in the league. It will be an interesting season for Williams when it comes to fantasy football.
2009 Season: Williams showed his durability was back, as he was able to play in all 16 games, and he put up 51.3 yards per game in amassing 821 yards on 210 carries. That’s up about 150 carries from the year before when he was hurt and only played in 6 games. Williams played in only 10 games the past two seasons combined, so seeing him go 16 games is a welcome sight.
2010 Season: Last season Williams crossed the goal line only four times, but already there is chatter about him being the #1 back in Tampa Bay, which means that number should go up. He also will get plenty more shots to carry the ball, as he averaged 13 carries per game, and that could go up to about 17-20 if he shows he can handle that load. It wouldn’t be a surprise to see Williams put up 1200 yards and 7-9 scores. That’s good enough to be a solid backup or 2nd RB on your fantasy roster.
