Darrel Williams Fantasy Football News 2019

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.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid conceded that there's a "good chance" RB Darrel Williams (hamstring) misses Sunday's game against the Patriots. There was no update from Reid on RB Damien Williams, who missed Week 13 with a rib injury. If both Williamses are out this weekend, Kansas City would be down to RBs LeSean McCoy and Darwin Thompson.

Despite RB Damien Williams (rib) being inactive and RB Darrel Williams exiting in the 3rd quarter with a hamstring injury, RB LeSean McCoy finished with just 5 carries and 3 targets in the win over the Raiders. “We’re not fooling anybody here, he’s not getting any younger, so it’s my responsibility to manage him as best I can, and I think I know him as well as anybody," HC Andy Reid said afterward. "So I’m going to do what I think is right on that." If both Williamses are out for Week 14's game against the Patriots, we're probably looking at something close to a 50/50 split between McCoy and RB Darwin Thompson. Thompson is worth grabbing off waiver wires this week.

Chiefs RB Darrel Williams suffered a non-contact leg injury in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game against the Raiders. The leg just buckled underneath him as he took the ball off left tackle. Williams was able to hobble off the field under his own power. We'll update his status when we learn more. With RB Damien Williams (rib) out, Kansas City is down to RBs LeSean McCoy and Darwin Thompson.

Update: Williams is officially questionable to return with a hamstring injury.

Chiefs RB Damien Williams (ribs) is out for Sunday’s game against the Raiders. That leaves LeSean McCoy and Darrel Williams as Kansas City’s top 2 backs. McCoy figures to lead the way in touches and is the best fantasy option. But we’re expecting Williams to be plenty involved, too. He’s on the RB3 or flex radar.

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 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.

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) 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.

ESPN's Adam Teicher tweeted that "based off pregame warmups, Darrel Williams will start at RB for the Chiefs today." Williams was reportedly 1st in line in warmups, followed by rookie Darwin Thompson and then LeSean McCoy. Fox's Jay Glazer also reported that HC Andy Reid told him McCoy's workload will be based on how he's feeling and performing early in the game. This has become a tough backfield to project. You might be best off just avoiding it in Week 3 fantasy lineups.

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.

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.

6:12pm EST 12/13/18

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.
