The Bills running back is Active for Week 9. We break down the fantasy implications.

Buffalo Bills running back Karlos Williams (concussion) is active for the team's Week 9 match up against the Miami Dolphins. Williams was a full participant in practice Wednesday through Friday. It will be Williams' first time suiting up since Week 4.

Fantasy impact: With LeSean McCoy healthy, Williams is expected to see a significantly smaller workload from the 15 carries he averaged in Weeks 3 and 4. The owner of a robust 5.4 YPC, Williams makes for one of the better handcuff options. He recorded his first game over 100 yards rushing in the first opportunity he received as the feature back in Week 3. The game also included his third consecutive time finding the end zone in as many weeks. The Dolphins present a favorable match up. Their defense allows the ninth most fantasy points to opposing running backs. While McCoy is the better for production, Williams can't be trusted as more than a low-end RB3/flex play.
