Scouting report

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.

KC RB Damien Williams - Week 11 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 11 at Los Angeles Chargers

LeSean McCoy was a healthy scratch last week, which means the Chiefs fully believe in Damien Williams now. Williams played a season-high 73% of Kansas City's offensive snaps, and out-touched backup Darrel Williams 24-3. He finished with 109 scrimmage yards being effective as a rusher and receiver. He gets a favorable matchup against the Chargers this week who are giving up the eighth-most fantasy points to running backs. Considering the matchup and Williams' increased workload, he should be viewed as a low-end RB1 or high-end RB2 in Week 11.

KC RB Damien Williams - Week 10 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10 at Tennessee Titans

Damien Williams had a huge game last week, rushing 12 times for 125 yards and a touchdown. But that should be taken with a huge grain of salt. He had a 91-yard touchdown run in the game, which means he ran 11 times for 34 yards. Williams has struggled on the ground all season, but he has scored in back-to-back games. He's also earned a lot more playing time as LeSean McCoy was relegated to six snaps last week. As long as Williams is getting touches, he'll have value, and he gets a solid matchup this week against the Titans. He should be viewed as a lower-end RB2 option.

KC RB Damien Williams - Week 9 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 9 vs. Minnesota Vikings

Damien Williams was actually able to move the ball forward last week as he finished with 30 yards on seven carries. He also scored his third touchdown of the season. But this game is coming directly off of a game where he touched the ball 11 times for six yards. Williams is playing behind LeSean McCoy, and is then splitting snaps with both Darrel Williams and Darwin Thompson. Williams isn't much more than a low-end flex play in a tough matchup against the Vikings this week.

KC RB Damien Williams - Week 8 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 8 vs. Green Bay Packers

Damien Williams had 11 touches last week for 6 yards. It's just the latest poor performance in a bad season for Williams. The Chiefs running back is averaging 1.7 yards per carry on 41 rush attempts. He's been somewhat effective as a receiver, but he's only averaging 23 receiving yards per game. He gets a favorable matchup against the Packers this week, but based on his previous performances he won't be a strong play. He should be viewed as a weak flex option.

KC RB Damien Williams - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 at Denver Broncos

Damien Williams scored a touchdown last week, but that wasn't the main takeaway from his performance. The takeaway is that Williams had just two touches all game, one run and one catch. He also played just 38% of the snaps, which is his lowest number of the season in games where he was active. We expect him to be more involved as a receiver moving forward, but he's not much more than a low-end flex play this week against Denver.

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.
