Rams still confident in RB Kyren Williams despite fumbles

The Rams held on for a 28-20 win over the Commanders on Sunday, but the final margin of victory likely would have been a good deal larger if not for a pair of miscues by running back Kyren Williams.

“I love the way that he finished the game out,” HC Sean McVay said, via the team’s website. “It’s always about your response and so he’ll learn from it and he’s the type of guy that has the right football character, the right mindset and mentality to be able to use these things as learning ops push forward in a positive way. And he still made big time contributions to this game in a positive way.”

When it was over, McVay said he has “a lot of confidence” in Williams despite the fumbles.

Fantasy Impact: 

Williams lost a fumble inside the Commanders’ 10-yard-line early in the second quarter and then lost another one in Washington territory with less than two minutes to go in the first half. There are times when coaches would bench a player who doubled up on giveaways, but McVay did not go that route, the story pointed out. Williams ended up running 27 times for 152 yards and a touchdown in a win that moved the Rams into playoff position in the NFC. The Rams have given Williams a majority of the workload when healthy, something that's been a rarity in the NFL as of late. It's given Williams a ton of fantasy value as a result, making him a clear RB1 option almost every week.
