The Chiefs have placed RB Spencer Ware on IR with a shoulder injury. That leaves Kansas City with RBs Damien Williams, LeSean McCoy and Darwin Thompson. Williams led the way with a 53% snap rate, 16 carries and 3 targets last week.
Chiefs RB LeSean McCoy is a healthy scratch for tonight's game against the Bears. The 31-year-old has been running on fumes over the 2nd half of the season. Kansas City will roll with RBs Damien Williams, Spencer Ware and Darwin Thompson tonight. Williams is the best fantasy bet of the bunch.
Chiefs RB Damien Williams (rib) practiced all week and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll return for Sunday night’s game against the Bears — his 1st action since Week 11. Williams averaged 9.9 carries and 3.3 targets over his first 8 games of the season. That feels like a fair projection for Week 16, making him a RB3 with some upside in this explosive offense.
Chiefs RB Damien Williams (rib) is inactive for today’s game against the Broncos. That again leaves Kansas City with RBs LeSean McCoy, Darwin Thompson and Spencer Ware. McCoy is the best fantasy bet in the committee but should only be considered a RB3 or flex option.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Chiefs RB Damien Williams is expected to be inactive for today's game against the Broncos. He's officially questionable after missing Friday's practice, following 2 days of limited workouts with his rib injury. Williams' expected absence leaves touches available for LeSean McCoy, Spencer Ware and Darwin Thompson. McCoy should be the 1st Chiefs RB into fantasy football lineups. Just don't expect him to dominate work. McCoy hasn't exceeded 12 carries or 14 touches in a game this year.
The Chiefs have placed RB Darrel Williams on IR with his hamstring injury. LeSean McCoy, Darwin Thompson and Spencer Ware are Kansas City's healthy RBs right now. Damien Williams (rib) remained sidelined on Wednesday. McCoy is looking like the favorite to lead this backfield in touches against the Patriots this weekend, although he hasn't topped 14 touches in a game all season.
The Chiefs have signed RB Spencer Ware. He played in Kansas City from 2015 to 2018, averaging 4.7 yards per carry on 337 attempts. Ware signed with the Colts this offseason but was placed on the PUP list with an undisclosed injury before eventually being released. He figures to be active on Sunday against the Patriots if RBs Damien Williams (rib) and Darrel Williams (hamstring) are out. Ware won't be a bankable Week 14 fantasy option, but his addition puts a damper on RB Darwin Thompson's outlook.
The Colts have placed RB Spencer Ware on the reserve PUP with his undisclosed injury. That knocks him out for at least the first 6 games of the season, but NFL Network's Ian Rapoport tweets that Ware's season is over. His absence leaves Jordan Wilkins as the Colts' #3 RB behind Marlon Mack and Nyheim Hines.
Colts RB Spencer Ware has been placed on the PUP list and will miss "a couple weeks" with an undisclosed injury, GM Chris Ballard said. That won't help Ware in his battle with Jordan Wilkins to win Indy's #3 RB job behind lead back Marlon Mack and pass-catcher Nyheim Hines. We'll see when Ware is able to get on the field.
The Colts have signed RB Spencer Ware. The former Chief has averaged 4.6 yards per carry and 11.5 yards per catch for his career, proving capable of handling lead duties when called upon. In Indianapolis, though, Ware figures to battle with Jordan Wilkins for work behind Marlon Mack and pass-catcher Nyheim Hines.
Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (hamstring) is not listed on the final injury report after putting in full practices on Thursday and Friday. So he'll presumably be active for Sunday's AFC Championship against the Patriots. Ware was atop Kansas City's depth chart prior to the injury but figures to return as Damien Williams' backup. It's unclear exactly how much work Ware will siphon.
Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (hamstring) put in a full practice on Thursday. He was limited all last week before sitting out the win over the Colts. But remember that he was a full participant prior to Week 17 and missed that one. We'll see how the Chiefs list Ware on tomorrow's final injury report.
Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (hamstring) is inactive for today's game against the Colts. That again leaves Damien Williams as the clear lead back. He averaged 11.3 carries and 4.7 targets per game over the last 3 and should be looking at a similar workload today.
Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Colts. He was limited in practice all week -- notable after Ware was a full-go in practice before sitting out the regular-season finale. We'll see if Ware is up when inactives come out around 3 pm ET on Saturday. Even if he is, though, we're expecting Damien Williams to serve as Kansas City's lead back.
Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (hamstring) was limited in Tuesday's practice. He was a full-go prior to Week 17 but was then inactive for the finale -- so it looks like he might have suffered a setback. We'll get another update on his status Wednesday afternoon.
Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (hamstring) is inactive for today's game against the Raiders. It’s a surprise after he put in a full week of practice. Ware’s absence makes Damien Williams a RB1 in fantasy lineups.
Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders. He should play after putting in a full week of practice, but we’re expecting him to be in a committee backfield alongside Damien Williams. Williams is the safer fantasy bet.
Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (hamstring) put in a full practice on Wednesday, putting him on track to return for this weekend's game against the Raiders. Ware was operating as Kansas City's lead back before the injury (and after Kareem Hunt's suspension), but he might return to more of a committee with Damien Williams. Consider both guys RB2s for Week 17 -- but with plenty of upside in a plus matchup.
Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (hamstring) is inactive for tonight’s game against the Seahawks. Damien Williams handled 10 carries and 6 targets with Ware out last week and should be looking at a similar workload tonight. He’s a RB2 with RB1 upside.
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.
