With Brown out, Williams' stock moves slightly
For more, the first reaction is to presume Ricky Williams becomes even more valuable now, and, in theory, he does. He's guaranteed more touches than at any time this season; so long as he remains healthy, he should be a force. But this guy is already owned in 98 percent of ESPN standard leagues, and he was already a force, ranking 13th among running backs in fantasy points. Do I really like him much better now? How much better can things get? Brown was at 118 fantasy points, Williams 109. Even if Williams becomes Brown, is he a top-10 running back for certain?
