New Orleans Saints running back Jamaal Williams is expected to return to the lineup in Week 7 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. 

The team designated Williams for return from injured reserve after he missed the last four games with a hamstring injury. 

Officially, Williams is listed as questionable on the team’s injury report. He will battle Kendre Miller for snaps behind Alvin Kamara in this offense.

Best Jamaal Williams prop bet vs. Jaguars in Week 7

There aren’t prop odds up for Williams at the moment since he’s questionable to play, but when he’s ruled in, bettors should consider taking him to score in this game at what should be pretty favorable odds. 

Williams is elite around the goal line, leading the NFL in touchdowns last season, and the Saints may ease him back into a short yardage role in this matchup. Since we don’t know how many snaps he’d play, taking him to score may be easier than trying to guess a yardage prop.
