DeAngelo Williams fantasy value low as Carolina Panthers run game struggles

DeAngelo Williams tries to pick up yards against the Carolina Panthers - Christian Petersen

The Carolina Panthers rushed for 95 yards against the Arizona Cardinals in their Week 5 loss. We bring you the fantasy implications here.

The Carolina Panthers rushed for 95 yards in the Week 5 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. DeAngelo Williams carried the ball 12 times for 39 yards while Cam Newton added 25 yards on four carries. Williams had a big game in Week 4 against the New York Giants with 120 rushing yards, but he crashed back to earth against the Cardinals.

Fantasy impact: Coming off a big Week 4 game against the Giants, Williams crashed back to earth rushing for 39 yards on 12 carries and a 3.3 yards per carry average. On the year, Williams is averaging 66 yards per game and has yet to find the end zone. He did catch two passes for 30 yards but he still remains a low end fantasy play. The Panthers have offensive line problems and Williams remains a low end fantasy play. The Panthers will play the Minnesota Vikings in Week 6 which is a better matchup, but Williams is only a desperation play. It remains doubtful he will have a fantasy impact and is barely worth a bench stash.
