Ricky Williams will replace Ronnie Brown in the starting lineup for the first time this season. He'll also become the primary triggerman if the Dolphins run the wildcat formation. At 32, Williams has rushed for 558 yards and is averaging a career-best 5.3 yards per carry. Fantasy spin: with Brown out, Williams' should see at least double his regular touches and Carolina's defense is not very stout against the run. Williams is a low RB1 or high RB2 option this week.
