Jamaal Williams is having himself a season, is he not? A league-high 14 touchdowns for a running back who’s started only half of Detroit’s games.

It’s around the goal line where Williams does his most notable work. They’ve got a good offensive line, and they like to emphasize the run in that part of the field. He’s a more durable, power-oriented runner than teammate D’Andre Swift.

After 13 weeks, Williams inside the 5-yard line has carried the ball 10 more times than Joe Mixon and over twice as many times as every other running back in the league. That’s including official carries and also 2-point conversions.
