SCOTT PIANOWSKI: Nobody thinks the Detroit Lions are going to the Super Bowl in 2022, but they may be the most entertaining fantasy team right now. They score points, they give up points. It's just a carnival of fantasy goodness. And look, St. Brown, you want to play. Swift, you want to play.

But how about Jamaal Williams, a screen zero RB on this team. He's got double digit carries in two straight games, and he's the automatic guy when they get to the goal line. As talented as Swift is, when the Lions punch in a short touchdown, it's Jamaal Williams lugging the mail.

Nothing special about this Minnesota run defense. I have Williams scoring in week three, and a locked in running back two again, the one zero RB, Jamaal Williams, is your best friend right now.
