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. Update: The Chiefs signed LeSean McCoy (for $3 million), which is certainly a worry for Williams owners. McCoy most likely eats into Darwin Thompson's projected workload, but Williams' ranking has been adjusted downward given the additional risk.

KC RB Damien Williams - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 vs. Los Angeles Chargers

The Chiefs' backfield took another odd twist last week as LeSean McCoy was a healthy scratch and Spencer Ware ended up getting injured. It seems clear now that Damien Williams is the lead back once again, as he ran 16 times for 65 yards while finishing 3-21-1 as a receiver. Look for the Chiefs to lean on Williams again in Week 17 in a solid matchup against the Chargers. He likely won't dominate, but Williams should do enough to get you RB2 numbers this week.
