Fantasy Football: Bills to target in late rounds of dynasty drafts
If fantasy owners are in a deep league, or one that 14 or 16 teams, then running back Antonio Williams is one that could be an option late. The former UNC running back wasn’t really given a chance to be a featured back, either with the Tar Heels or previously with the Ohio State Buckeyes, but when he touches the ball he makes the most of it.
In four seasons, two with the Tar Heels and two with the Buckeyes, he averaged 5.7 yards per carry on 202 attempts, including a career high 6.7 last year. He also showed an ability to get to the endzone with 11 rushing touchdowns on those limited carries.
At 5’11” and 215 pounds, Williams has the body to be a featured running back and has pretty good burst to break off big runs. While Antonio Williams was an undrafted free agent, he could show enough to warrant a final roster spot or at worst a spot on the Buffalo Bills practice squad.
It may be a few seasons before Antonio Williams gets a chance to be a featured running back but if he does, he has a tremendous chance to break out.
