Javonte Williams, RB, Denver Broncos

Javonte Williams had a couple of obstacles in his way this season. He was coming back from a torn ACL that shut him down for the 2022 season in the first month of the year and this season, he was part of a rough Denver Broncos offense.

It didn't lead to positive results, despite the efforts of Sean Payton to build the offense as a run-heavy attack.

Williams did rush for 774 yards on the season but he averaged only 3.6 yards per carry and scored just three touchdowns. You certainly weren't winning fantasy games because of him. Most importantly, he just doesn't look like the tough-running, explosive running back that hit the league in 2021.

Williams looked slow and plodding at times and watching the Broncos, both Samaje Perine and Jaleel McLaughlin often looked more effective.
