Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Sunday night’s game against the Seahawks. He was limited in practice all week but evidently isn’t ready yet. That again leaves Kansas City’s backfield to Damien Williams and Darrell Williams. Last week, Damien played 73% of the offensive snaps and handled 10 carries and 6 targets. Darrell played 25%, carried twice and saw 2 targets. Expect a similar split on Sunday night.

Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (hamstring) was limited in Wednesday's practice. He missed last Thursday night's game against the Chargers but seemingly has a shot to return for Sunday night's game against the Seahawks. Ware might cede more touches to Damien Williams, though, after Williams' strong showing last week.

Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (shoulder, hamstring) is inactive for tonight’s game against the Chargers. So it’s Damien Williams, Darrell Williams and Charcandrick West in Kansas City’s backfield. Damien is the best bet for touches and is in the RB2 mix.

The Chiefs list RB Spencer Ware (shoulder, hamstring) as doubtful for Thursday night's game against the Chargers after he missed practice all week. Ware was able to play through the injuries last week, but it doesn't look like he'll be able to tomorrow. His absence would leave Damien Williams as Kansas City's lead back. Charcandrick West and Darrell Williams also figure to mix in, but Damien projects for 12-15 touches. That makes him a RB2 option.

Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (shoulder, hamstring) will not practice on Tuesday, HC Andy Reid said. Ware was able to finish out last weekend's OT win, so we're expecting him to play against the Chargers on Thursday night. But backup RB Damien Williams should be rostered everywhere in case Ware can't go.

And now the Chiefs have announced they're releasing RB Kareem Hunt. It's a stunning fall overall but not a shocking development given today's video release. We'll see if Hunt gets claimed on waivers like Reuben Foster did recently. Either way, Spencer Ware is your starting RB in K.C. for the rest of 2018. Damien Williams sits behind him on the depth chart and is worth a look in many leagues. Don't overreach/overpay to add Williams.

Dolphins RB Damien Williams (shoulder) is inactive for today’s game against the Bills. Kenyan Drake will again operate as Miami’s feature back in a pristine matchup.

Dolphins RB Damien Williams (shoulder) is doubtful for Week 17. Kenyan Drake will again operate as Miami’s feature back in a plus matchup against Buffalo’s 32nd-ranked RB defense.

Dolphins RB Damien Williams (shoulder) is inactive for today’s game against the Chiefs. Kenyan Drake will be super busy again after racking up 64 carries and 14 catches over the past 3 games.

Dolphins RB Damien Williams (shoulder) is doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Chiefs. Kenyan Drake will remain in a feature-back role. He’s racked up 64 carries and 14 catches over the past 3 games.

Dolphins RB Damien Williams (shoulder) didn't travel with the team to Buffalo and is out for Sunday's game against the Bills. That locks Kenyan Drake into a feature role. He's racked up 48 carries and 8 catches over the past 2 weeks.

Dolphins RB Damien Williams (shoulder) is doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Bills. He returned to practice this week, giving him a shot to play in Week 16. But Kenyan Drake will again play a feature-back role this weekend vs. Buffalo’s 32nd-ranked RB defense.

Dolphins RB Damien Williams (shoulder) put in a limited practice on Thursday -- his 1st since going down in Week 12. That gives him a shot to play against the Bills on Sunday. Williams' return would put a dent in RB Kenyan Drake's outlook, but Drake would still be a fantasy starter as Miami's likely lead back.

Dolphins RB Damien Williams (shoulder) is out for Monday night's game against the Patriots. He's yet to practice since going down in Week 12 and has no timetable for return. Kenyan Drake will again serve as Miami's feature back on Monday.

Dolphins RB Damien Williams (shoulder) is out for Sunday’s game against the Broncos. That leaves Kenyan Drake in a feature-back role — and make him a fine RB2 in fantasy lineups, despite the tough matchup.

Dolphins RB Damien Williams dislocated his shoulder during Sunday's loss to the Patriots, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Williams is scheduled for an MRI today, but Rapoport notes that this is "generally a 2-3 week injury." That timeline would have Williams out until Week 15 or 16. He's droppable in shallower fantasy leagues. Kenyan Drake should operate as a feature back while Williams is sidelined. He has a tough draw against the Broncos this weekend but more favorable matchups the next 2 weeks vs. the Patriots and Bills.

Dolphins RB Damien Williams injured his shoulder in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game in New England and will not return. We'll look for an update on his status afterward. Kenyan Drake will serve as Miami's feature back the rest of the way.

Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake is in the concussion protocol. He took a shot while running a pass pattern in practice on Monday. Prior to the injury, Drake was competing with Damien Williams for Miami’s #2 role.

Dolphins RB Arian Foster announced his retirement in a written statement on Monday. "There comes a time in every athlete's career when their ambition and their body are no longer on the same page," Foster wrote. "I've reached that point ... I know it's not commonplace to do it midseason, but my body just can't take the punishment this game asks for any longer." Foster dealt with numerous injuries throughout his 8-year career, including a torn meniscus and a torn Achilles. He mustered just 2.6 yards per carry over between 2015 and 2016. RB Jay Ajayi, riding back-to-back 200-yard games, is locked in as Miami's feature back going forward. He'll be backed up by Damien Williams and Kenyan Drake.

Dolphins RB Damien Williams will start tonight, per beat writer Armando Salguero. Last week, Miami started Kenyan Drake in place of Arian Foster but saw 4 different RBs take handoffs. Williams finished with just 1 for 15 yards. Look for another committee approach tonight, making this a backfield to avoid.
