49ers | Joe Williams competing for No. 3 RB duties

Sun, 05 Aug 2018 11:33:22 -0700

San Francisco 49ers RB Joe Williams has run with more urgency during training camp this summer and appears more willing to take the hits required from the position, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan. Williams is competing with special-teams ace Raheem Mostert for the third running back job behind Jerick McKinnon and Matt Breida. "I think it's taken him time to see the difference and the urgency that it takes this to see at this level. Joe wasn't quite as ready last year and that does make you wonder, because you can succeed if you don't have that mindset. But I've seen it this year. I saw the way he worked and I feel that he fixed his body, got a lot more muscle and got better shape," Shanahan told NBC Sport Bay Area's Matt Maiocco.

49ers | Joe Williams getting off to a 'slow start'

Wed, 02 Aug 2017 09:22:32 -0700

San Francisco 49ers rookie RB Joe Williams has gotten off to a slow start in his first training camp, presumably because he is still getting familiarity with head coach Kyle Shanahan's offensive system. He also has to do a better job with ball security, according to CSN Bay Area's Matt Maiocco.

Fantasy Tip: Williams was a fourth-round pick this spring who was seen as a serious challenger for the starting job, primarily because it was well-documented he was handpicked by Shanahan and highly regarded running backs coach Bobby Turner. It sounds as if he is going through a typical rookie struggles, but his slow start has allowed Carlos Hyde and Tim Hightower to get a better grasp on the first two spots on the depth chart, making Williams little more than a late-round fantasy investment at this point.

49ers | Joe Williams pushing for playing time

Fri, 21 Jul 2017 19:44:13 -0700

San Francisco 49ers RB Joe Williams has "put himself into a position to compete for a significant role" heading into training camp, according to Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com.

Fantasy Tip: Williams was handpicked by head coach Kyle Shanahan, so it wouldn't be a surprise to see him pass Carlos Hyde on the depth chart or at least split carries. Williams could be a steal as a second-round pick in rookie drafts, and he has enough upside to grab as a RB4 in redraft leagues.

49ers | Carlos Hyde must earning starting job

Tue, 11 Jul 2017 12:32:14 -0700

San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde will need to earn his starting job over rookie RB Joe Williams, according to Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com. Maiocco envisions a committee approach with RB Tim Hightower also being involved.

Fantasy Tip: Williams does have some upside heading into his first year, but Hyde will start as long as he is in good health. Committees obviously hurt fantasy value, but Hyde remains a low-end RB1 to high-end RB2 candidate.
