Latest News
Andre Williams could surprise again
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/30/14) Though I don't know that he's ready for a platoon role, believing his strong showing Week 4 at Washington happened mainly because the Giants saw fit to rest their starting running back in a blowout, rookie Andre Williams has the perfect matchup to make the most of whatever opportunities he gets Week 5 against Atlanta. The Falcons rank 28th against the run, allowing 153.5 yards per game, and have given up nine touchdowns on the ground, four more than any other team.

Even better, they've been sort of the magic elixir for running back tandems this season. Not only did the Vikings' Matt Asiata and Jerick McKinnon both have big games against them last week, the former rushing for 78 yards and three touchdowns and the latter rushing for 135 yards, but the Bengals' Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill both had big games against them in Week 2, the former rushing for 90 yards and a touchdown and the latter rushing for 74 yards and a touchdown.

Of the two lead CBSSports.com Fantasy Football analysts, Jamey Eisenberg ranks Williams the highest for this week, placing him 28th among running backs, so we're talking little more than an emergency flex option in standard 12-team leagues. Still, you wouldn't be completely out of your mind to play him coming off last week's performance.

Prioritizing running backs on the waiver wire
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/30/14) The running back position has been a tough one to pin down for Fantasy owners this season, with so many big names struggling -- if they aren't out of action entirely. With this in mind, it is more important than ever to hit on your waiver-wire pickups. Jamey Eisenberg's top waiver-wire targets at the running back position are as follows:

The Vikings' Jerick McKinnon, The Ravens' Justin Forsett and Lorenzo Taliaferro, the Browns' Isaiah Crowell and the Texans' Alfred Blue. Additionally, Andre Williams of the Giants, Darrin Reaves of the Panthers and Denard Robinson of the Jaguars are mentioned as possible options worth targeting.

If you need a roster spot, consider dropping Adrian Peterson, DeAngelo Williams and Darren McFadden this week. 

Andre Williams' increased role likely a one-week situation
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/29/14) With the Giants up big and Rashad Jennings coming off a 34-carry game, the Giants opted to give backup Andre Williams some extra work in Week 4. He responded with 66 yards and a touchdown, but Fantasy owners probably should not expect the same type of production moving forward.

In Week 3, Williams played just 23 percent of the team's snaps, a number that had declined in every week prior to Thursday's game. The fact that the game was played on Thursday likely played a big part in Williams' increased role, as Jennings was just three days removed from his big workload. The Giants will likely be willing to run Jennings out there more often moving forward, especially with how well he is playing.

That Williams was able to take advantage of his increased role is a good sign for his future, but that future still leaves him as more of a handcuff for Jennings. Though, potentially a very good one, if needed. 

Andre Williams takes advantage of playing time
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/25/14) Giants running back Andre Williams took advantage of extra playing time Thursday. 

The Giants went up big pretty early, allowing Williams to get more carries than expected. He toted the rock 15 times for 66 yards. Both figures led the team. Williams also found the end zone late in the contest. With New York up 38-14, Williams plunged in a 1 yard score with 6:20 remaining. 

Williams will take on the Falcons Week 5. 

Report: Andre Williams could have bigger role Thursday
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/24/14) Giants rookie running back Andre Williams might be more involved in the gameplan Thursday at Washington, reports ESPN.com. That's because starter Rashad Jennings is coming off a career-high 34 carries Week 3 against Houston.

With the short turnaround for Jennings, the team is monitoring him closely, the report said. Williams has received 19 carries in three games, producing just 39 yards (2.1 ypc).
