Ricky Williams| RB
2011 Fantasy Football Outlook: With the loss of Willis McGahee the Ravens turned to another veteran in Ricky Williams to backup Ray Rice in the offense. While Williams is a bigger back than Rice, according to offensive coordinator Cam Cameron, the team is exepected to us Rice as the goal line back. This makes sense as Rice is ready to be a true feature back, and much like LeSean McCoy (Eagles signed Ronnie Brown), he’s earned the right to establish himself as a true feature back.
While Williams will help the Ravens, he’s nothing more than a waiver wire option if Rice should find the shelf with an injury. This makes Rice a top five fantasy back and Williams an interesting flex possibility, if Rice should go down for a stretch. Don’t look to Williams as an option worth placing on your cheat sheet this summer.

For all intents and purposes, Ricky Williams has had the craziest up and down career of all time. From wearing a dress as Mike Ditka’s bride, to dominating on the field in Miami, to leaving the game to smoke weed, to finishing his career strong. Not only that but Williams is taking classes to become a massage therapist after his career is over. Some people are just truly original.
2010 Fantasy Football Outlook
2009 Fantasy Year In Review: Ricky Williams had himself a comeback season at age 32 when he posted eleven touchdowns and over 1,100 yards rushing. Amazingly, the veteran did all this with under 250 carries as he had an impressive 4.7 yard per carry average on the season.
Williams racked up most of his work after Ronnie Brown went down for the season in the middle of the year with a foot injury.
2010 NFL Fantasy Football Player Rankings: With hard work and a strong offensive line, Williams was able to pull off a nice season at his older age. When you look at Williams career, it isn’t as unbelievable to see him having success when he missed out on a few years because of off the field decisions.
Williams will play behind Brown as long as he is ready to go by week one but fantasy owners need to consider Williams as a nice player to have on their team. Both running backs had success in a committee early on and Brown has proven he can’t make it through a full season.
Eventually, Williams should get another shot to be the teams starting running back if and when Brown goes down again. This makes Williams a must have hand cuff if you select Brown at your 2010 draft.
