Draft note
by John Paulsen
Williams took over for Kareem Hunt in mid-December and definitely looked the part. He averaged 19.4 touches for 114 yards and 1.6 touchdowns in five games (23.4 PPG in half-PPR formats), including the postseason. He averaged 5.60 YPC in that span and showed dual-threat ability, playing well enough to earn a two-year extension from the Chiefs.

KC RB Damien Williams - 2019 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
Damien Williams was virtually unknown heading into last season, but he made a name for himself filling in for Kareem Hunt late in the year. In three regular season games, he averaged 107.3 yards and carried that dominance into the postseason, averaging 125 yards per contest. He was effective as a rusher (averaging 5.1 ypc) and as a receiver (5+ receptions in four of his five starts). He’ll enter 2019 as the Chiefs starting back, paving the way for what should be another successful season.

Fantasy Downside
We have a very small sample size of Williams’ production. In his five starts last season, he only had more than 13 carries in one game. Will he be able to last over the course of a 16-game season and keep up the level of production he had last year? Also, Carlos Hyde has been added to the backfield, giving Williams competition he didn’t have a season ago.

2019 Bottom Line
While Hyde adds some competition, it likely won’t be enough to devalue Williams too much. There’s a lot to like about Williams in this high-powered Chiefs offense, especially in PPR formats. We have him ranked as a top 10 back and his ADP has him going outside of the top 10, so as of now, he’s a good value pick.
