NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the Chiefs are releasing RB Damien Williams. The veteran, of course, opted out of the 2020 season for COVID reasons. His departure now creates a potential opportunity for Darwin Thompson to fight for the #2 job. Neither Darrel Williams nor Le'Veon Bell is under contract for 2021, leaving only Thompson and Clyde Edwards-Helaire. We'd bet on the Chiefs adding more either in free agency or the draft. Thompson is a fine shot to take late in best-ball drafts right now, though, in case he reaches the season as K.C.'s 2nd back.
The agent for RB Damien Williams said Thursday his client is signing with the Falcons, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It's a 1-year contract, which doesn't lock Williams into anything. We'll see about the money, but it's tough to expect much. Atlanta surely isn't done supplying its backfield. We wouldn't bother with Williams in best-ball drafts for now -- other than as an occasional end-of-draft consideration.
The Bears have ruled RB Damien Williams (knee) out for Monday night's game against the Steelers. That doesn't really matter for the touch counts of other Chicago backs, especially with David Montgomery looking likely to return.
Bears RB Damien Williams is questionable to return to Sunday's game vs. the 49ers after suffering a 1st-half knee injury. Stay tuned for an update.
Bears RB Damien Williams is active for today’s game against the Bucs. He was just activated from the COVID list on Saturday, so it’s uncertain how big a role he’ll play today. We’d try not to use Williams in Week 7 fantasy lineups. Bears RB Khalil Herbert is a better bet.
The Bears have activated RB Damien Williams from the COVID list. That makes him available to play Sunday against the Buccaneers, where he'll likely split work with Khalil Herbert. Exactly how Chicago will split that work won't be clear until the game happens. The pair has shared just 1 game since David Montgomery went down. Herbert carried 18 times to Williams' 16 in that contest, with Williams getting all 3 of the pass targets between them.
