Doug Martin Unable To Produce In Loss

Oakland Raiders running back Doug Martin was held in check all day against the Bengals and unable to post solid fantasy numbers against the Bengals. Martin had touchdowns in three straight games coming into this week but was unable to extend that streak. He ended with only nine carries for 39 yards, which is the first time he had less than double-digit carries since taking over the starting role from Marshawn Lynch. Martin will continue to make a low-end fantasy option due to the overall inefficiency of the Oakland offense.

Derek Carr Falls Flat Against The Bengals

Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr wasn't able to produce solid fantasy numbers despite facing the Bengals and their soft defense. Carr ended with 263 yards and only one touchdown, along with being sacked five times. He came into this week with multiple touchdowns in three of his last four games but was unable to extend that streak against the Bengals. His up and down production has continued as we reach the end of the season and will see his fantasy value slip away due to this inconsistency.

Jamaal Williams Moves Into Starting Role

Green Bay Packers running back Jamaal Williams assumed starting duties following an injury to running back Aaron Jones (knee) in a Week 15 matchup against the Chicago Bears. Williams began the season as the starter but was underwhelming and eventually ceded most of his touches to Jones. Jones is feared to have sprained his MCL and may miss the rest of the season. This would leave Williams as a bell-cow back in Green Bay. Williams had his best game of the season against Chicago. He ran for 55 yards on 12 carries and added 42 yards receiving on four receptions. He also ran for a touchdown. The prospect of an every down running back sitting on the waiver wire is appealing, but it is important to remember how much he struggled in the first few weeks of the season. Even if he receives every carry in Green Bay, he is unlikely to top 15 rushes if quarterback Aaron Rodgers is active. It will be risky to rely on such on unreliable player in fantasy footballs championship week in Week 16. Unless Rodgers in inactive, Williams should be avoided in favor of any other reliable RB2 or flex option in Week 16.
