Javonte Williams was able to post solid numbers as a rookie despite being in a 50-50 timeshare with Melvin Gordon. I expect Williams' role to grow in Year 2, although new Broncos head coach Nathaniel Hackett has done his best to lower those expectations by saying he'll go with a "hot hand approach" at running back.
Even if that's the case, Williams should continue to handle the majority of work on passing downs. Last season, Teddy Bridgewater compared Williams' pass-catching abilities to those of Alvin Kamara. Not too bad.
And this is a great matchup for Williams, too. The Seahawks allowed the most completions to opposing running backs last season, and Russell Wilson will surely be keen to exploit that.
I'm projecting Williams' receiving yards for closer to 22.5, so there's some solid value here.
