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.
Snow is expected throughout today's Broncos-Chiefs game. There are already multiple inches of snow on the field. We're not adjusting projections for this game because there's no evidence that snow impacts scoring. But you can certainly use the weather as a tiebreaker between 2 closely ranked players.
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.
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 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 HC Andy Reid said Monday that RB LeSean McCoy did not sustain a concussion in the win over the Chargers. He left in the 4th quarter of that game to get checked but evidently passed the concussion test. So McCoy will be available for this weekend's game against the Raiders. RB Damien Williams' status remains uncertain after he suffered a rib injury in the Chargers game.
Chiefs RB LeSean McCoy left in the 4th quarter of Monday night's game against the Chargers to get tested for a concussion. He followed Damien Williams (ribs) out of the game, leaving Darrel Williams as the team's top remaining back. We'll see about the status of both players coming out of the Week 12 bye.
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.
