Lions RB Jamaal Williams: Week 4 waiver wire

Williams led Detroit in rushing today, going 87 yards on the ground over 20 carries and adding two touchdowns. He also had two receptions for 20 yards in the Lions’ loss to the Minnesota Vikings.

If the Lions continue to utilize Williams the way they did today, he’s a good waiver wire add if you’re looking for running back talent for Week 4. He’s currently rostered in 44.4% of ESPN fantasy leagues.
