Andre Williams Goal Line Back?
The New York Giants have some new faces in their backfield heading into 2014. Free agent signee Rashad Jennings looks to have a firm grasp on the number one duties, except in one department, goal line carries. During training camp the Giants have been going with rookie Heisman Trophy finalist Andre Williams from Boston College as their main goal line back. Williams has proven he has a nose for the end zone, scoring 28 times in his college career, 18 of those coming in his senior season.
If Williams can maintain that goal line role he will become a valuable asset in fantasy, especially in touchdown heavy leagues. Heck, Peyton Hillis was owned by about 50% of fantasy owners last season for the Giants, due to receiving a lot of the goal line carries (yes the Giants were crucified with injuries, but still it was Peyton Hillis). Watch some of the Giants preseason games coming up and see what they do with Andre Williams when they enter the red zone. He can be a late round pick that can prove to be a reliable touchdown threat week in week out.
