If you're asking the question, "Should I Start Jamaal Williams in Fantasy Football in Week 11 2017?", you've come to the right place. We've got a few reasons why Williams is indeed start-worthy for your fantasy football matchup with week. In addition, Kevin Kinder already listed some reasons why he's a solid DFS play for Week 11.

The (perhaps unsurprising) answer is that you should be starting the Packers running back in most formats today. Unless your roster is stacked beyond reason, he's likely to be your best flex option. And, well, if you were high enough on waiver priority to claim Williams, your roster probably isn't that stacked. If you're in a FAAB league, someone who was really desperate for a running back was probably willing to bid more.


The point is, Williams is a fairly obvious must-start. With Ty Montgomery and Aaron Jones out for the week, he's likely to get a significant number of touches. Volume is one of the best things you can hope for from a running back. Last week, he got 20 carries for 67 yards, and added 7 yards on one catch.

74 total yards and no score would make for a fairly paltry fantasy performance. But Williams is likely to have a better performance against a Ravens defense that's allowing 4.2 yards per carry to opposing running backs this season. Furthermore, he could get even more touches considering he'll be the Packers' best running option for the entire game instead of taking over partway through the game like he did last week.

This is the same Ravens defense that saw Jordan Howard put up 167 total yards against them in Week 6. While it would be unreasonable to expect Williams to do the same, he's a clear RB2 this week. If you have him on your roster, make sure he's in your lineup.

President Donald Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani is known by some to hurt his client more than help him.

Such was the case on Monday afternoon, after Trump's impeachment defense attorney, Jane Raskin, defended Giuliani on the Senate floor, dismissing the idea that he went to Ukraine to look for dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden.

New allegations from former National Security Advisor John Bolton in his upcoming memoir have thrown a wrench into the efforts of President Donald Trump's impeachment defense team to bypass a vote for additional witnesses.

According to Bolton, Trump told him explicitly that he wanted to withhold congressionally approved aid from Ukraine until its President announced investigations into Trump's political rivals.

Congressman Justin Amash (I-MI) left the Republican Party in July of last year after frustration with its enabling of President Donald Trump.

Since then, Amash has publicly taken Trump and others to task for lying, and he sided with Democrats in favor of Trump's impeachment by the House of Representatives.

Amash is at it again after Trump tried to dismiss new allegations by former National Security Advisor John Bolton, who wrote in a manuscript of his upcoming memoir that Trump sought to withhold congressionally approved aid from Ukraine until its President announced investigations into the Bidens.

Just one day after President Donald Trump's lawyers insisted during his Senate impeachment trial that the President did nothing wrong, reporting from the New York Times made the job of defending Trump even more difficult.

The Times reported on the upcoming memoir from Trump's former National Security Advisor John Bolton, which asserts that President Trump sought to withhold $391 million in congressionally approved aid from Ukraine until its President announced an investigation into his potential 2020 rival, former Vice President Joe Biden.

If true, Bolton's assertion would confirm previous second-hand testimony regarding the existence of a quid pro quo in Trump's dealings with Ukraine.
