For the fourth consecutive week, Denver Broncos running back Javonte Williams has been nominated for the Rookie of the Week award on NFL.com.

Williams totaled 81 yards from scrimmage in Week 15, which was good enough to earn him another nomination for the weekly award.

Williams has 1,103 yards from scrimmage and six touchdowns through 14 games this season. He needs to average 62 rushing yards per game in the team’s final three contests to finish the year with 1,000 yards on the ground.

Williams took home Rookie of the Week honors in Week 9 and he would have had a great chance to win again in Week 12 if teammate Pat Surtain hadn’t recorded two interceptions and a pick-six that week.

Surtain, the team’s first-round pick, and Williams, Denver’s second-round pick, have each won the award once this season and they will likely be in contention for Defensive and Offensive Rookie of the Year honors at the end of the season.

Fans can vote for Williams this week at NFL.com/Rookies.
