3. RB Antonio Williams
Following his tremendous performance against the Patriots in which he ran the ball nine times for 61 yards and one TD, Antonio Williams did not disappoint against the Bengals, making plays on the ground and through the air.
While he did not run the ball as much this week, he did a lot of damage in the receiving game – Catching seven passes for 46 yards, in addition to this, Williams also ran five times for 26 yards. Not bad considering he didn’t get a ton of carries.
Something to love about Williams is just how hard he runs for his somewhat small frame. He is always looking to hit the hole as hard as possible and knock someone over. You have to love to see the fight Williams has, you can really tell he wants to make it in this league.
Williams really burst onto the scene within the last two weeks, it almost feels as if he is a lock to make the team. However, we believe that if he really keeps up the high level of play that he could potentially take over Matt Breida’s spot as the RB2 of the NY Giants. This is going to be something to watch closely over the next few weeks.
