Green bay Packers running back Jamaal Williams has been activated from the Covid-19 list and should be good to go for their Week 10 game against the Jaguars, per The Athletic’s Matt Schneidman. Williams has played well this season and was able to take over for Aaron Jones when he hurt his calf recently.

Jones is back now, so Williams is no longer a must-start in fantasy, but he does have decent upside for a backup. His touches as a backup are inconsistent, so he’s more of a bye-week flex play in good matchups. Fortunately, this week is a bye week and the Packers host a terrible Jaguars defense. There is enough upside there if needed.

A.J. Dillon remains on the Covid-19 list and Dexter Williams is hurting, so Williams was needed. The Packers go into this week at 6-2 and 14-point favorites as they host the Jaguars and either Jake Luton or Gardner Minshew at quarterback.
