Williams was a sixth-round pick by the Packers in this year's draft. He is not the most explosive back but hits the hole well and shows good vision as a runner. He is a patient runner that sets up his blocks well. He has good size for the position but doesn't run with a lot of power. He won't make a lot of plays after contact. It might take him a few years to carve out a big role with the Packers but should be No. 3 or 4 on the depth chart this season.
FANTASY OUTLOOK: You never know with Packers backs but Williams seems a bit of a long shot to produce much this year. He could get around 250 total yards.

Green Bay Packers running back Dexter Williams led the team in carries in the final preseason matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs. Williams finished the game with 34 yards and one touchdown, from nine carries. Williams was also able to haul in his two targets for another 30 yards in the air. Williams has limited fantasy relevance this season, as he is at best the third player on the depth chart behind Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams. However, Dexter Williams could be a good waiver wire pickup if either of those players misses time through injury.
Green Bay Packers running back Tra Carson is ahead of rookie Dexter Williams on the depth chart because of his work in pass protection, according to head coach Matt LaFleur. Williams will have a chance to climb the depth chart as the season wears on, but to begin he's behind Aaron Jones, Jamaal Williams and Carson. He's strictly one to stash in dynasty/keeper leagues for now.
Green Bay Packers running back Dexter Williams struggled to make an impact in the team's third preseason matchup against the Oakland Raiders. Williams was given the ball 11 times, rushing for 27 yards and caught a single pass for five yards. Williams still looks to be the leading contender for the third roster spot, behind Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams. Dexter Williams is only likely to have fantasy value this season if one of the two players ahead of him missed time.
Green Bay Packers running back Dexter Williams has a chance to make an impact this season. Fellow running backs Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams have struggled with fitness during the offseason and are yet to take the field. Dexter Williams may have fumbled in the preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens, but given the struggles of the other players in camp- Williams should be set to be the next man up in the new offense in Green Bay.
Green Bay Packers running back Dexter Williams was given a limited workload in a loss against the Baltimore Ravens. Williams finished with five yards on the floor from three attempts and caught one of his two targets for four yards. Williams has impressed in camp and looks to be the team's third option behind Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams. Dexter Williams is only likely to be fantasy relevant if the two players ahead of him are injured and is far more likely to be a waiver wire pickup than drafted.
Green Bay Packers running back Dexter Williams has had some recent struggles in catching the ball in practice. Williams was given the opportunity to lead the team at the position in the opening preseason game against the Houston Texans, given the injuries to Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams, and performed well. However, if an injury were to hit either of the players ahead of him then Williams' upside could be capped depending on how he performs catching the ball. While Williams is unlikely to be drafted his season in most fantasy leagues, he is worth monitoring for waiver wire consideration during the season.
Green Bay Packers running back Dexter Williams operated as the teams lead running back in the opening preseason game against the Houston Texans. Williams was likely to be given the nod to led the charge, given the injuries to starter Aaron Jones and backup Jamaal Williams, but took the opportunity with both hands. Williams rushed for 62 yards from 14 attempts, averaging 4.4 yards per carry- while also catching his single target for 18 yards in the air. Williams is likely the team's third option at the position, so his fantasy relevance is limited. However, performances like this mean that he could be relied upon as a waiver-wire option. Especially if either of the two backs in front of him where to be injured in season.
Green Bay Packers running back Dexter Williams led a depleted running back group through individual drills. The Packers were missing both Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams, who were both missing through hamstring injuries. Williams likely has very limited fantasy relevance with the players ahead of him on the depth chart, but his situation should be monitored. New coach Matt LaFleur has said that he wants to run the ball more, with the Packers ranking last in attempts last season. If Jones and Jamaal Williams were to miss time then the rookie would be relevant in an Aaron Rodgers led offense
