DeAngelo Williams contributed 34 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries while absorbing all seven of his targets for 51 yards Sunday in the Steelers' AFC Championship Game loss to the Patriots.
Williams took over as the lead back after Leâ€™Veon Bell went down with a groin injury late in the first quarter. D-Will offered a handful of nice runs including a five-yard touchdown dash in the second quarter, but was mostly bottled up against a stout Patriotsâ€™ run defense. He fell flat in the second half, recording just 10 yards on six carries after halftime. Williams made up for his lack of rushing success by playing an important role in the passing game, though none of it was enough to top a New England team that came ready to play on Sunday. Itâ€™s unclear what the future holds for Williams. Heâ€™s the oldest back in the NFL at age 33, but showed he still has something left in the tank by rushing for 258 yards during Bellâ€™s three-game suspension earlier this season. The impending free agent may have one year left in him.

DeAngelo Williams rushed 23 times for 67 yards and one touchdown in the Steelers' Week 17 win over the Browns.
With Le'Veon Bell resting for the playoffs, Williams out-carried Fitzgerald Toussaint 23-3. Coming into the regular-season finale, Williams had played just 12 offensive snaps since Week 5 after undergoing a knee scope. Williams will head back to sparingly-used No. 2 duties in the Wild Card round.

ESPN Steelers reporter Jeremy Fowler reports DeAngelo Williams could see a "healthy" workload this week against the Browns.
Williams returned to the field in Week 16, but he only played one snap, his only action since Week 9. It would make sense for the Steelers to get the veteran a little more rest before the playoffs, but Fowler thinks they will give him a "tuneup" after missing so much time. If Williams does get the start, he will be a great play in both season long and DFS.
