"Damien Williams is our starter. We expect him to excel in that role." That's what Chiefs OC Eric Bienemy said Thursday, according to Brandon Kiley of 610 Sports in Kansas City. It's not a shocking revelation, but it does add some clarity to a backfield that added Carlos Hyde early this offseason for basically the same annual salary as the team is paying Williams. We're tempering our expectations a bit for Williams, who has never topped 50 carries or 23 catches through 5 NFL seasons (after arriving as an undrafted free agent). But his tremendous finish to 2018 and the numbers Kareem Hunt delivered over the previous year and a half point to the high ceiling that comes with his new job. Hyde, meanwhile, looks like more of a handcuff for fantasy purposes than a weekly flex candidate.
The Chiefs and RB Damien Williams have agreed to a 2-year extension worth up to $8.1 million, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. He's now signed with Kansas City through the 2020 campaign. Williams has stepped up for 263 yards and 3 scores over the past 2 weeks, averaging 6.6 yards per carry and 8.5 yards per catch. He should remain a big part of the offense the rest of this season, even with the return of RB Spencer Ware. We'll see what the Chiefs add to the backfield this offseason.
