KC RB Darrel Williams - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 at Cincinnati Bengals
Clyde Edwards-Helaire suffered a collarbone injury last week, so it's likely Darrel Williams will draw the start in Week 17. It's a role Williams is familiar with as he was the Chiefs starter for a lot of the year when CEH was out with another injury. In the five games where Williams started, he averaged 17.6 touches for 94 scrimmage yards with three total touchdowns. He shined as a receiving option out of the backfield, averaging 4.8 receptions in that five-game span. Even with CEH active, the Chiefs still kept Williams fairly involved. He gets a middle-of-the-road matchup this week against the Bengals. We're projecting around 15 touches for Williams, as the Chiefs will likely get Derrick Gore involved a bit as well. Williams should be viewed as a strong RB2 play in Week 17.
