RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Williams figures to open the season as the primary backup to Jay Ajayi. In three NFL seasons, Williams only has 87 rushing attempts versus 65 receptions, the latter of which signifies where his utility lies. Consequently, if Ajayi were ever to go down, the Dolphins may roll with a running back by committee rather than increase Williams' carry count.

2016

With the signing of Arian Foster, Williams is still no better than third on the RB depth chart and will likely be fighting for a roster spot in training camp. In two seasons with Miami, Williams has only had 52 carries for 181 yards. Those hare hardly statistics that scream future starter. Still, a strong showing in camp could put Williams in line for a larger role this season, as Miami has more quantity than quality at RB at this point in time.

2015

Williams was signed as an undrafted free agent by Miami last May and did little to suggest he will be provide the Dolphins with anything more than depth at running back, something the team may no longer need due to the addition of Jay Ajayi in the fifth round of this year's draft. With Ajayi in tow, the Dolphins sport five running backs on their roster, possibly one more than they will carry into the season. This could mean that whomever performs best on special teams out of LaMichael James, Mike Gillislee and Williams will ultimately have the best chance at making the team. It also means that special teams could be Williams' biggest contribution to the 2015 Miami Dolphins.

2014

Williams was signed as an undrafted free agent in May and will give the Dolphins some depth at running back but he's fighting an uphill battle to make the team.
