Redskins waived RB/FB Keiland Williams and TE Emmanuel Ogbuehi.
Williams was a core special teamer, but didn't offer enough value on offense to be carried over Evan Royster. Williams' release also gives big-play rookie Chris Thompson a chance to make the 53 despite his preseason fumbles. Sat, Aug 31, 2013 09:51:00 AM

Redskins signed FB Keiland Williams.

Williams is an upgrade on Ryan Grant thanks to his versatility. He'll help on special teams, can do some lead blocking and can even be a power back in a pinch. Williams knows the scheme after spending the 2010 season in Washington.

Lions waived FB Keiland Williams.

Williams was mostly a special teamer for the Lions, so this doesn't really have an impact on Kevin Smith's projected role. A roster spot was needed for secondary help as Bill Bentley (shoulder) and Jacob Lacey (concussion) are both in doubt for Week 7.

Keiland Williams ran eight times for 27 yards in Friday's preseason game against the Ravens, adding three catches for 26 yards.

Three of his touches came with Matthew Stafford still in the game. Williams' stat-line wasn't as impressive as Joique Bell's, who rushed five times for 35 yards while reeling in three catches for 44 yards, but Bell didn't play a down until third-stringer Kellen Moore entered. Bell also lost a fumble near the goal line at the end of a 20-yard run. Williams, who has 17 preseason totes for 98 yards, is ahead of Bell on the depth chart. Bell has carried 21 times for 124 yards.

Keiland Williams, Joique Bell and Stephon Green will likely battle for one running back spot at training camp.

There's not much room behind Jahvid Best, Mikel Leshoure and Kevin Smith. The bulky Williams didn't exactly impress with his chances last season anyway, averaging a meager 3.4 yards on 58 carries. He's still the favorite from this group.

Keiland Williams rushed 12 times for 43 yards and added two catches for 17 yards in the Lions' Week 14 win over the Vikings.

With Maurice Morris limited severely by a chest injury, Williams handled the feature back job for the majority of three quarters. He got what was blocked, but the 230-pounder has no explosion or burst. Only the most desperate of owners should consider an add heading into next week's game at Oakland. Morris' injury does not appear serious.

Keiland Williams rushed two times for 14 yards in Sunday's loss to the Saints, adding one catch for seven yards.

Williams' limited use is noteworthy because it came on a night where Kevin Smith aggravated his ankle injury early in the second half. Maurice Morris carried the load after Smith went down. Although Williams will undoubtedly be in line for more touches if Smith can't give it a go in Week 14, he's an extremely low-upside flier in all formats.

Keiland Williams rushed two times for 18 yards with a touchdown and added four catches for 33 yards in Thursday's loss to the Packers.

Williams only got significant snaps in this one thanks to Kevin Smith's ankle injury. He tore through a gaping hole in the fourth quarter for a 16-yard score, but played behind Maurice Morris. If Smith's sprain proves to be serious, Williams will function as the power back behind Morris in Week 13.
Thu, Nov 24, 2011 04:22:00 PM

Keiland Williams rushed for just 25 yards on 11 carries and added one reception for five yards against the Broncos in Week 8.

Williams didn't enter the game until 11 minutes left in the second quarter. He did have one shot at a touchdown, but was stuffed on the goal-line one play after Maurice Morris failed to get in. The Lions hope to have Jahvid Best back in Week 10, so Williams is droppable in all formats.
Sun, Oct 30, 2011 07:36:00 PM

Keiland Williams rushed nine times for 44 yards against the Falcons in Week 7.

Williams handled feature-back work in the second quarter after Maurice Morris did the same in the first. The two backs essentially split snaps and touches down the middle, though Williams never got a shot at goal-line work. He's not an attractive fantasy option against the Broncos in Week 8.
Sun, Oct 23, 2011 05:50:00 PM

Keiland Williams and Maurice Morris shared first-team reps at Lions practice Wednesday.

They're essentially competing for snaps on Sunday with Jahvid Best (concussion) not expected to play. Ronnie Brown hasn't joined practice yet, but is expected to do so Thursday after passing his physical. Morris is slated to draw the start against the Falcons, but he's going to be a timeshare back in Week 7.
Wed, Oct 19, 2011 04:46:00 PM

Coach Jim Schwartz confirmed that RB Keiland Williams is still getting up to speed on "protections and things like that."

"We are getting him up to speed," Schwartz said. "He's doing a lot of different things, including playing fullback on our scout team." Just fourth on the depth chart, Williams was a healthy scratch in Week 1. He's not going to have fantasy value any time soon.
Fri, Sep 16, 2011 10:14:00 AM

Lions declared RB Keiland Williams inactive for Sunday's game against the Bucs.

Williams may eventually earn a short-yardage role as the biggest back the Lions' have, but he's not ready yet. The ex-Redskins has only been with the Lions for a week. Other Lions inactives: QB Drew Stanton, T Jason Fox, G Jacques McClendon, DT Nick Fairley, LB Doug Hogue and CB Alphonso Smith.
Sun, Sep 11, 2011 11:52:00 AM

According to Phillip Zaroo of MLive.com, the Lions plan to use Keiland Williams in the same "manner" they planned to use Mikel Leshoure (injured reserve, Achilles).

Zaroo isn't saying Williams will be the No. 2 back, only that he offers a similar size in a less talented skill-set. "We saw him as a runner at LSU. He's a little bit bigger than some of the guys that we have," said coach Jim Schwartz. It appears that Williams will get a long look in a short-yardage and clock-killing situations. We'd advise carrying Jerome Harrison on fantasy rosters instead.

Lions claimed RB Keiland Williams off waivers from the Redskins.

Detroit needed a bigger back to go with Jahvid Best, Jerome Harrison, and Maurice Morris. At 5'11/230, Williams was a better fit than Aaron Brown. Versatility is Williams' calling card, as he can play all three downs in a pinch. His addition won't alter the fantasy value of Best.
