  Chiefs | Damien Williams remains sidelined    Thu Dec 5, 12:52 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Damien Williams (ribs) will not practice Thursday, Dec. 5, according to the team.

Footballguys view: We should see LeSean McCoy and Darwin Thompson in the backfield for the Chiefs this week against the Patriots. Spencer Ware might even factor in as Williams is unlikely to play in Week 14.

  Chiefs | Damien Williams out Week 13    Fri Nov 29, 02:44 PM

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs RB Damien Williams (ribs) on Friday, Nov. 29, was ruled out of the team's Week 13 game against the Oakland Raiders.

Footballguys view: Darrel Williams and LeSean McCoy will split the work against Oakland and if it follows the trend established when Damien Williams has been out this year, it should be close to a 50-50 distribution, making both solid flex plays or reasonable RB2 picks if you are in a bind.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Damien Williams (non-injury) did not participate in practice Saturday, Nov. 16, and is listed as questionable for Week 11.

Footballguys view: We'll see if Williams is going to play on Monday night or not. Fantasy GMs need to have other options at the ready since the Chiefs vs the Chargers is the last game of Week 11. We could see more Darrell Williams and LeSean McCoy if Damien Williams misses this contest.

  Chiefs | Damien Williams to play Monday    Sat Nov 16, 02:12 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Damien Williams (non-injury) will play in Week 11 on Monday, Nov. 18, despite missing the team's practices Friday and Saturday due to undisclosed personal reasons, a Chiefs beat reporter said Saturday.

Footballguys view: Williams should be the lead back for the Chiefs as they play against the Chargers in Mexico City on Monday night. He's been the dominant force in the Chiefs backfield ever since LeSean McCoy fumbled his role away in Week 8. Ball security has been an issue for Williams too, so we'll see if he can hang onto the rock in Week 11.

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) 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.

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.
