DeAngelo Williams Needs the Football | NFL Fantasy Football Rankings
This season Williams has not performed as the fantasy football stud, we saw a season ago. The Panthers themselves have also scuffled as they are still looking for their first win of the season.
How can the Panthers win football games and how can Williams return to his fantasy stud self?
Give the Williams the Football
This season quarterback Jake Delhomme has two touchdowns to go with seven interceptions.
While those numbers are bad, Delhomme’s pass attempts this season to over 30 a game. This is up from around 25 a game last year when the Panthers had so much success.
So far, this season Williams is carrying the football less than 14 times a game. This is a very low amount of rushing attempts for a player with the gifts that Williams has.
This team is built to run the football, and if they have any hopes of winning football games this season, they need to get back to a ground game.
Just What the Doctor Ordered
A major reason for the Panthers’ lack of rushing attempts is that they have been playing from behind against potent offenses.
In the next three weeks, the Panthers will play three offenses that are struggling mightily. With this break in schedule it should allow the Carolina to run with confidence.
If the Panthers can win their next three contest, they would pull back to an even record. After that they will start fighting it out against playoff contending teams.
Below I have listed Carolina’s schedule from this week until week 16.
- Wk. 5- Redskins
- Wk. 6- @ Buccaneers
- Wk. 7- Bills
- Wk. 8- @ Cardinals
- Wk. 9- @ Saints
- Wk. 10- Falcons
- Wk. 11- Dolphins
- Wk. 12- @ Jets
- Wk. 13- Buccaneers
- Wk. 14- @ Patriots
- Wk. 15- Vikings
- Wk. 16- @ Giants
Fantasy Football Ranking for DeAngelo Williams
With an increase in touches, Williams should have a strong fantasy season for fantasy football owners from here.
Furthermore, look for the Panthers to pull it together in the next three weeks and get themselves back to winning football games.
In the end, their slow start may cost them a playoff spot, but if they can pull it together, players like Williams and Steve Smith can be productive.
