New Orleans Saints running back Jamaal Williams injured his hamstring on Monday Night Football in Week 2, and he has been placed on injured reserve with the injury.

The Saints play the Green Bay Packers in Week 3, and they’ll have rookie running back Kendre Miller back in action after he missed the first two games of the season with an injury. Alvin Kamara (suspension) is still out in Week 3. 

Here’s how to wager on the Saints depending on Williams’ status this week.

Williams will not play in Week 3 against the Green Bay Packers after being placed on injured reserve.

Best Saints prop bet with Jamaal Williams out for Week 3

Taysom Hill had a huge role in Week 2, carrying the ball nine times for 75 yards against the Panthers. 

Even with Miller playing against the Packers, I think Hill could be a good bet to find the end zone in Week 3.

Hill has been a great goal-line threat in recent seasons, rushing for eight, five and seven scores in the last three seasons.
