2013 Outlook: Gamble (high risk)Last updated on Nov-04-2013 by Matt De Lima
It seems every season DeAngelo Williams will put together one fantastic game that injects a tiny amount of hope back into the fantasy community. This spurs a handful of owners to believe that someone in the Panthers' backfield can be relied upon to tote the rock. Wise fantasy owners should know better though. Williams rushed for a paltry 737 yards on 173 carries. 210 of those yards came in the regular season finale, long after most owners had moved on from the former Memphis runner. Unless you have a crystal ball that can foresee when he will have that one great game, it would be best to let someone else try their luck with Williams.
UPDATE (11/4): Williams' first half of the season has enjoyed some positives. His yardage totals have exceeded expectations as evidenced by his Top 20 RB status enjoyed up until Week 9. The concerns moving forward regard how his role will take shape with a healthy Jonathan Stewart back in the mix. A healthy Stewart will only eat into Williams' touch totals and Mike Tolbert continues to poach red zone and goal-line opportunities. The Panthers' offense will need to produce more points and more yards in order for Williams to stay off the bench in most formats.

|10.06||The Huddle - Guess I was too slow to pull the trigger on the Ben Tate handcuff; lesson learned, I guess. Williams has as much talent as just about any back in the league; the question is, will it take another Jonathan Stewart injury or a trade for him to get a chance to use it? Worst-case, his limited touches produce what you'd expect from a 10th-rounder; best-case, he manages to get the touches he deserves and dramatically outperforms his draft slot.|
