Darrel Williams Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Shark Bites are the latest fantasy football news & NFL updates. Draft Sharks has been in business since 1999. And when we started, redraft was the dominant form of fantasy football. Check out what we've learned about this most basic form of fantasy football along the way.

Cardinals RBs Darrel Williams and Eno Benjamin each logged 8 carries in Sunday's win over the Raiders, with James Conner left early with an ankle injury. They also split pass routes near-evenly, with Williams running 24 vs. Benjamin's 22. It was Benjamin edging Williams by a target. Conner's injury is not expected to be serious, so we'll see whether he misses any further game time. If/when he does, expect a similar work split for Arizona's reserves.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Cardinals RB James Conner's ankle injury is "not considered long-term or serious." Conner remained on the sideline for the OT win over the Raiders but never returned. We'll keep an eye on his practice participation this week. If Conner can't play vs. the Rams on Sunday, we'd likely see a fairly even backfield split between RBs Darrel Williams and Eno Benjamin.

Cardinals RB James Conner injured his left ankle in the 2nd half of Sunday's game vs. the Raiders. He's trying to work through it on the sidelines and is officially questionable to return. RBs Eno Benjamin and Darrel Williams have been splitting work in Conner's absence.

Pro Football Focus' Doug Kyed reports that "multiple league sources" identified Cardinals RB Darrel Williams as a potential surprise candidate to be cut or traded. Williams' usage through 2 preseason games has seemed to indicate he might be ahead of Eno Benjamin and others on the RB depth chart, but that has also accompanied persistently positive reports on Benjamin's performance. We'll see how this one plays out over the next week plus, with roster cutdowns progressing. For now, there's at least risk to adding Williams late in fantasy football drafts. We'd hold off on selecting him to best-ball rosters with no in-season management.

The Cardinals have agreed to a deal with former Chiefs RB Darrel Williams, according to Jordan Schultz. Williams delivered double-digit PPR points 9 times from Week 4 on, including 4 outings of more than 15.5 points (Top-12 level). A Week 5 hip injury to Clyde Edwards-Helaire helped boost Williams' role, and a December shoulder injury for CEH allowed Williams to star in Week 17. He looks like the best bet to back up James Conner in Arizona, with better size than Eno Benjamin and no less receiving upside. Rookie Keaontay Ingram is also in the competition for roles.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports that the Chiefs and RB Darrel Williams have failed to reach a deal ahead of free agency, despite trying to work something out. So it sounds like Williams will hit the open market. With fellow RB Jerick McKinnon also set to hit free agency, we'll see how Kansas City fills out the backfield around Clyde Edwards-Helaire.

Chiefs RB Darrel Williams (toe) is active for today's AFC Championship game vs. the Bengals. We're expecting him to 3rd in line for touches behind RBs Jerick McKinnon and Clyde Edwards-Helaire. RB Derrick Gore is a healthy scratch for Kansas City.

Chiefs RB Darrel Williams (toe) is listed as questionable for Sunday's AFC Championship vs. the Bengals. He was limited on Thursday and Friday after a full practice on Wednesday. If he suits up this weekend, he figures to be 3rd in line for touches behind RBs Jerick McKinnon and Clyde Edwards-Helaire.

Chiefs RB Darrel Williams (toe) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. That puts him on track to return for the AFC Championship after missing last weekend's win over the Bills. We're expecting Williams to be 3rd in line for RB touches behind Jerick McKinnon and Clyde Edwards-Helaire.

Chiefs RB Darrel Williams (toe) is inactive for tonight's Divisional Round game vs. the Bills. Kansas City will roll with RBs Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Jerick McKinnon and Derrick Gore.

Chiefs RB Darrel Williams (toe) is active for tonight's Wild Card game vs. the Steelers. He's been mostly excellent as Kansas City's lead back this season, but the toe issue adds some risk to his fantasy profile in this one.

Chiefs RB Darrel Williams (toe) is listed as questionable for Sunday night's game vs. the Steelers. He got in 3 limited practices this week and is tentatively expected to play. But check back around 7 pm ET on Sunday to make sure he's active.

Chiefs RBs Clyde Edwards-Helaire (shoulder) and Darrel Williams (toe) were limited in Wednesday's practice. That seemingly puts them on track to play vs. the Steelers on Sunday, but we'll get another update on both guys tomorrow.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid said Monday that he "anticipates" RB Darrel Williams (toe) being available for Sunday night's game vs. the Steelers. Williams hurt his toe on the last play of the 1st half of the Week 18 win over Denver and did not return. "It's still a little tender, but he's working through that and we'll see how it goes this week," Reid said. We'll keep an eye on Williams' practice participation this week.

Chiefs RB Darrel Williams hurt a big toe on the final play of the 1st half of Saturday's game vs. the Broncos. He didn't record a touch in the 2nd half. We'll keep an eye on Williams -- and RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire -- this coming week. The Chiefs will host a Wild Card game unless the Titans lose to the Texans on Sunday.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (shoulder) is out for Saturday's game vs. the Broncos. He remained sidelined all week, and his availability for the start of the playoffs is uncertain. Darrel Williams will continue to operate as Kansas City's lead back for however long CEH is out. Williams is a top 10 RB for Week 18.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (shoulder) remained sidelined for Wednesday's practice. He's looking unlikely to play vs. the Broncos on Saturday night, setting up RB Darrel Williams as a strong fantasy play again.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (shoulder) remained sidelined on Tuesday. That's not a good start for his chances of returning for Saturday's game vs. the Broncos. CEH's absence would again make Darrel Williams a borderline RB1.

The Chiefs have downgraded RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire to out for Sunday's game against the Bengals. It was more surprising that the team initially deemed him questionable than it is that he'll miss the game. We've had Darrel Williams projected as a strong starter all week. Kansas City also added Jerick McKinnon to the active roster. McKinnon has been out since Week 11 with a hamstring injury. We wouldn't bet on a big role at Cincinnati.
