Carolina Panthers Running Back, DeAngelo Williams, is part of the ultimate RBBC in NFL Fantasy Football. You don’t hear people complain though. With the Panthers Offensive Line opening holes there are plenty of running attempts for both Williams and Jonathan Stewart. So many that people often don’t even consider that they share time. Let’s look at some other things to consider with Williams on Fantasy Football Draft Day…

After his breakout year in the 2008 DeAngelo Williams brought in an Average Draft Position of pick 1.06 in 2009. Sharing more of the workload with a returning Jonathan Stewart and missing three games himself saw his production take a dip. So far this draft season his ADP lands 2.08, in the bargain zone. While he will continue to share carries with Stewart, the Panthers are set up to be a run machine again as they welcome in a new starting QB and some young WRs.

There is not much downside apart from the sharing of the load, but that isn’t as scary as most situations with the amount of carries to be shared. Williams is recovering from an ankle surgery, which appears to be no issue.

Currently Williams ranks at #11 in our Running Back Redraft Rankings. He is being drafted anywhere from the mid first round to late third round. If you go QB or WR in the first round and can land Williams as your #1RB in the second round you are off to a fantastic start!
