Summary

Darrel Williams never rushed for 1,000 yards in college, his 4.7 speed is glacial by NFL standards, and he entered the league as an undrafted free agent. His primary appeal to fantasy managers last season was that after Damien Williams opted out due to COVID-19 concerns, Darrel Williams inherited the role of No. 2 running back in arguably the best offense in the league. It's not clear he'll keep that gig this season, however. The Chiefs resigned him to a one-year deal and let Damien Williams leave in free agency, but Kansas City also signed ex-49er Jerrick McKinnon, who could challenge for the primary backup role behind Clyde Edwards-Helaire. Versatility is Williams' greatest asset. His pedigree may be modest, but the Chiefs used him in a variety of roles last season, including passing downs and short-yardage situations. It would probably take an injury to make Williams fantasy-relevant, but he's a player whose name you want in your waiver wire Rolodex, largely because the Chiefs' offense is so potent. (May 18)
