Kansas City Chiefs RB Damien Williams (knee) is expected to play in Week 5's game against the Indianapolis Colts, according to a source.

  Chiefs | Damien Williams likely to play    Fri Oct 4, 02:14 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Damien Williams (knee) is expected to return from a two-week absence and play in Week 5 versus the Indianapolis Colts, according to head coach Andy Reid.

Footballguys view: Williams is at least a flex and probably an RB2 in PPR leagues. Darius Leonard being sidelined helps his prospects. Darrel Williams is still worth holding as a high value handcuff to both Williams and LeSean McCoy.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Damien Williams (knee) was not scheduled to participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 26.

The Kansas City Chiefs have declared OG Nick Allegretti, RB Damien Williams, OT Eric Fisher, DL Khalen Saunders, OT Greg Senat, OT Martinas Rankin and WR Tyreek Hill inactive for Week 3.

Footballguys view: LeSean McCoy will get the start, but Darwin Thompson and Darrel Williams could see more work and get their foot in the door of this very productive fantasy backfield.

  Chiefs | Damien Williams ruled out    Fri Sep 20, 02:27 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Damien Williams (knee) on Friday, Sept. 20, was ruled out for the team's Week 3 game against the Baltimore Ravens.

Footballguys view: LeSean McCoy is a solid RB2 choice as long as he plays, although Darrel Williams and Darwin Thompson could get auditions and chances to earn a piece of a very valuable backfield. Thompson should be owned in every league and Williams should be added in deep leagues.

  Chiefs | Damien Williams to miss another day    Thu Sep 19, 12:49 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Damien Williams (knee) will be held out of a second straight day of practice Thursday, Sept. 19.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Damien Williams (knee) won't practice Wednesday, Sept. 18.

Footballguys view: Williams is banged up and so is LeSean McCoy (ankle). Check back on their practice status for Friday. Darwin Thompson would be the next man up if either Williams or McCoy (or both) have to miss time.

  Chiefs | LeSean McCoy, Damien Williams hurt in Week 2    Mon Sep 16, 03:36 AM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Damien Williams (knee) carried nine times for eight yards but hauled in three of his five targets for 48 yards in Week 2 against the Oakland Raiders. RB LeSean McCoy (ankle) rushed for 23 yards on 11 carries and did not gain a yard on his three receptions.

  Chiefs | Damien Williams catches TD    Sat Aug 24, 11:01 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Damien Williams had one carry for two yards and caught three passes for 74 yards and a touchdown in a 27-17 preseason loss to the San Francisco 49ers.

Footballguys view: Williams was in top form on a catch and run score from over 60 yards out that looked too easy. Target the 49ers defense with your Bucs starters in Week 1, and know that Williams is set up to be an RB1 as long as he gets 15 touches or so a week in this offense.

  Chiefs | Damien Williams returns to practice    Wed Aug 7, 09:51 AM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Damien Williams (hamstring) returned to practice Wednesday, Aug. 7.

Footballguys view: Good news for Williams here. Williams is the top back and set to produce in a big way for Fantasy GMs. However, he needs to stay healthy and not open any sort of opportunity for Carlos Hyde to do more in 2019. Williams has a current ADP of RB12 (2.10) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Chiefs | Damien Williams has support    Sun Aug 4, 08:39 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Damien Williams (hamstring) remains the lead back and will be given time to recover, according to offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy. 'He's the starter,'' Bieniemy said. 'We need to make sure than Damien continues to do the things he needs to do in order to help himself be ready when called upon.''

Footballguys view: More than his status on the depth chart, this injury is worrisome for his ability to hold up all year under a feature back workload. Williams is still worth a third round pick on the upside of his 2018 finish and the quality of the backfield, but there is plenty of risk to taking him with a premium pick.

  Chiefs | Damien Williams remains sidelined    Sat Aug 3, 03:31 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Damien Williams (hamstring) did not participate in practice Saturday, Aug. 3, and has not practiced since the start of training camp.

Footballguys view: Andy Reid sounded a little frustrated and it's fair to wonder if Williams status as the clear starter won't get tarnished if this absence lasts much longer. It's about time for his ADP to slide a little unless he gets back on the field pronto.

  Chiefs | Damien Williams remains idle    Tue Jul 30, 09:37 AM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Damien Williams (hamstring) doesn't appear to be participating in practice Tuesday, July 30.

Footballguys view: There's no reason to see this as a long term issue as long as Williams returns to practice without incident soon. For now, we wait for that event before returning to our previous stances on Williams' value. If you are drafting right now, it's reasonable to move him down within his tier.

  Chiefs | Damien Williams tweaks hamstring    Sun Jul 28, 09:10 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Damien Williams (hamstring) left practice early with a hamstring issue Sunday, July 28.

Footballguys view: Williams hasn't been a lead back for a full season, so there are some doubts about his ability to live up to ADP despite the perfect situation in Kansas City and his late season success. If he misses a week or less and returns to the field, we won't worry, but that is not a given.

  Chiefs | Damien Williams being asked to carry the load    Tue Jul 9, 09:17 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Damien Williams has 'taken the challenge' and 'earned the right to be (the full-time starter),' according to head coach Andy Reid.

Footballguys view: Williams is the lead back but the team does have Carlos Hyde to push him. One could make the argument that Hyde has more natural talent than Williams, but right now it's Williams who sits atop the depth chart. Williams is capable of being featured as a runner or receiver out of the backfield. He's not as dynamic as other starters in the league, but he's on one of the best offenses out there and is a low-end RB1 with upside for Fantasy GMs in 2019. Williams has a current ADP of RB12 (2.09) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Chiefs | Carlos Hyde lines up with Damien Williams    Wed Jun 12, 11:31 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Carlos Hyde is listed as the backup to RB Damien Williams, but he has been busy at minicamp, lining up along with Williams in the teams backfield on occasion. He has been used as a receiver. 'For a running back like me who likes to catch the ball, it would be like a dream come true,' Hyde said Wednesday, June 12.

Footballguys view: Williams is the Chiefs back Fantasy GMs are going nuts for...and we get it. In that offense with Williams skill set it could mean big fantasy points. However, everyone needs to know that the Chiefs staff loves the addition of Hyde this offseason. He could push for a larger role than most think. Right now, Williams has an ADP of RB12 (2.07) and Hyde is going off the board at RB45 (10.04) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Chiefs | Damien Williams locked in as starter    Thu May 30, 02:31 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Damien Williams is 'our starter' and someone the team expects to 'excel in that role,' according to offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy.

Footballguys view: Williams can do some good things as a runner and a receiver out of the backfield. Fantasy GMs are excited about what he can do in 2019. Williams is currently going off the board at RB13 (2.10) in 12-team PPR leagues. Don't forget about Carlos Hyde, his likely backup this season. If Williams falters or gets banged up, Hyde could step in and take over. At the least, Hyde is a valuable handcuff for Fantasy GMs who play in deeper leagues.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Damien Williams accounted for 123 total yards (49 rushing, 74 receiving) and two touchdowns during the team's Week 15 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers.

Footballguys view: Williams showed Kareem Hunt-like burst on a few touches and proved the Chiefs offense is still in good hands if Spencer Ware can't go at Seattle in Week 16.

  Chiefs | Charcandrick West may not make roster    Tue Jul 31, 12:03 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West could be a surprise cut in light of the team's offseason addition of Damien Williams, according to Brooke Pryor and Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star.

Footballguys view: West also has suffered a concussion, his second in two years, and Spencer Ware is back and healthy. West has been competent in his role, but hasn't really added value. A release wouldn't be that big of a surprise.

  Chiefs | Damien Williams in full health for camp    Tue Jul 24, 05:04 AM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Damien Williams (shoulder) is doing 'great,' according to the team's Vice President of Sports Medicine and Performance Rick Burkholder. Williams was able to do 'everything' on the first day of camp Monday, July 23.

Footballguys view: The Chiefs have a jam packed backfield and Williams is at best third or fourth on the current depth chart. Undrafted out of Oklahoma in 2014, Williams has spent most of his career with the Dolphins. The Chiefs picked him up back in March as a free agent. Williams is a bigger back, measuring in at 5'11" 220 pounds. His career YPC average is just 3.6 yards so we're not expecting much from him even if he does make the 53-man roster.

Free-agent RB Damien Williams (Dolphins) signed a one-year, $1.5 millino deal with the Kansas City Chiefs Thursday, March 22. Williams is expected to miss most of the offseason as he is recovering from shoulder surgery. The hope is that he will be ready for training camp.

Footballguys view: Damien Williams was underwhelming in Miami, but he may not even get a chance to be underwhelming behind Kareem Hunt barring injury. Add in the recovery from injury and Williams is going to have a tough time making the roster.
