Damien Williams Fantasy Football News 2019

Chiefs RB Damien Williams suffered a rib injury in the 2nd quarter of Monday night's game against the Chargers. He's questionable to return.

Update: The team has ruled him out for the game.

Chiefs RB Damien Williams is active for tonight's game against the Chargers. He was listed as questionable after stepping away from the team to deal with a family matter, but he should continue operating as Kansas City's lead back tonight. Williams has totaled 31 carries and 7 targets over the past 2 weeks. RB LeSean McCoy is also active tonight after being a healthy scratch last week.

Chiefs RB Damien Williams has returned to the team after dealing with a family matter, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports. That means Williams should be ready to play against the Chargers on Monday night. Go ahead and set him in your lineups today.

Chiefs RB Damien Williams is questionable for Monday night's game against the Chargers in Mexico City. HC Andy Reid said Saturday that Williams was "excused for a personal situation" but added that he "should" travel with the team for the game. Let's hope we get word on whether Williams traveled before the early Sunday games start. If Williams remains away, we'd assume RB LeSean McCoy would re-enter the picture -- but also that he'd share work with Darrel Williams. Let's hope it doesn't come to that scenario.

NFL Network's James Palmer reports that this was a "predetermined rest week" for Chiefs RB LeSean McCoy. "Chiefs want him fresh down the stretch," Palmer adds. So it at least sounds like McCoy hasn't fallen completely out of Kansas City's plans. But considering he played just 6 snaps last week, he might need a Damien Williams injury to re-emerge as a viable fantasy option.

Chiefs RB LeSean McCoy is a healthy scratch for today's game against the Titans. That follows a Week 9 that saw him play just 6 snaps. RB Damien Williams dominated work last week, playing 72% of the snaps and handling 14 touches. He's a RB2 with upside today. Darrel Williams will serve as Kansas City's #2 RB.

Chiefs RB Damien Williams (knee) is active for tonight’s game against the Colts. He was listed as questionable but put in a full week of practice, so we’re expecting him to return to a significant role alongside LeSean McCoy.

The Chiefs expect WR Sammy Watkins to play tonight against the Colts, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports. Watkins put in full practices Wednesday and Thursday before a limited Friday and then a "questionable" designation. Raporport also reports that RB Damien Williams is expected to return after missing the past 2 games with a knee injury. Williams' "questionable" designation was a bit surprising after he practiced in full all week. Plan on having him available, though the designation means you'll need an insurance option available.

Chiefs RB Damien Williams (knee) put in a full week of practice but is listed as questionable on the final injury report. HC Andy Reid said Friday that “the plan” is for Williams to play against the Colts on Sunday night. We’ll look for an update on his status on Sunday morning. Williams will be a risk/reward RB2 if he’s active vs. the Colts’ leaky run defense.

Chiefs RB Damien Williams (knee) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. That puts him on track to return for Sunday night's game against the Colts. In his 2 games this season, Williams played 59% of the Chiefs' offensive snaps and tallied 22 carries and 11 targets. We're expecting him to re-join a committee backfield with LeSean McCoy. RB Darrel Williams figures to drop back to 3rd on the depth chart.

Chiefs RB Damien Williams (knee) is out for Sunday’s game against the Lions. He didn’t practice all week and has no timetable for return. RB LeSean McCoy (ankle) isn’t listed on the final injury report after getting in full practices on Thursday and Friday. He’s seemingly healthier than he was at this time last week and is a RB2 for Week 4. Darrel Williams will serve as Kansas City’s #2 RB but is just a RB3 or flex flier.

Chiefs RB LeSean McCoy (ankle) put in a full practice on Thursday after being limited on Wednesday. He's clearly on track to play against the Lions this weekend -- and might be healthier than he was last week. RB Damien Williams (knee) remained sidelined on Thursday.

Chiefs RB LeSean McCoy (ankle) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. He aggravated his ankle injury in the 4th quarter of last weekend's win over the Ravens, but the limited workout puts him on track to play against the Lions on Sunday. He'll come with risk in fantasy lineups, though, unless we hear that he's back to 100%. RB Damien Williams (knee) remained sidelined on Wednesday and is looking unlikely to play this weekend.

Chiefs RB Damien Williams (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Ravens. RB LeSean McCoy (ankle) is listed as questionable. He put in a limited practice on Thursday and was listed as a full participant on Friday. HC Andy Reid said McCoy “got better each day” and had “a great practice [Friday].” It sounds like McCoy will suit up this weekend, although it's safe to assume he won't be at 100%. That, plus a tough Ravens run defense, adds risk to his fantasy outlook. But there's plenty of upside thanks to Kansas City's explosive offense. We're expecting RB Darwin Thompson to mix in behind McCoy, but the rookie is just a fantasy flier.

Chiefs RB LeSean McCoy (ankle) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. RB Damien Williams (knee) remained sidelined. We're assuming Williams won't play against the Ravens this weekend, while McCoy seems 50/50. Check back tomorrow for another update.

Chiefs RBs Damien Williams (knee) and LeSean McCoy (ankle) were sidelined on Wednesday. Neither guy's injury is serious -- but they're both in danger of missing this weekend's showdown with the Ravens. That'd leave Kansas City's backfield to Darwin Thompson and Darrell Williams. Thompson would be an exciting fantasy play after an impressive preseason.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that the MRI on the injured ankle of Chiefs RB LeSean McCoy showed no significant damage and that "he has a shot to play" Sunday against the Ravens. That's a lot different than "expected to play." We'll see about the outlook for Damien Williams' knee, but RB Darwin Thompson makes for an attractive waiver target this week.
