LeSean McCoy 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 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.

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.

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 RB LeSean McCoy (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Ravens. He was listed as a full participant in Friday’s practice, so we’re pretty optimistic about his outlook today. There’s still a chance Kansas City limit’s his workload a bit — and this is a tough matchup. But the Chiefs’ explosive offense gives McCoy exciting upside.
