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 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 vs. Houston Texans

Damien Williams returned to the lineup last week, but it wasn't a great outing. He ran nine times for 23 yards while catching three passes for 15. He played 56% of the offensive snaps as LeSean McCoy and Darrel Williams also saw action. Heading into the year, it looked like Williams would be heavily-used, but it's clear now that's not the case. He's still the most likely among all three backs to produce, but his ceiling is somewhat limited now. He gets a solid matchup against the Texans this week, who are allowing the ninth-most fantasy points to running backs. Williams should be fine as an RB2 choice in Week 6.
