KC RB Darrel Williams - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 vs. Los Angeles Chargers

The Chiefs are benching Patrick Mahomes, but it's not completely clear what they plan to do with the rest of the offense. Clyde Edwards-Helaire is still nursing an ankle injury, so he won't be playing. Le'Veon Bell is dealing with a knee injury. That leaves Darrel Williams, who played on 70% of the Chiefs' snaps last week. It seems possible the Chiefs could even hold Williams back considering how much he's played in CEH's absence, leaving Darwin Thompson as the other back. Simply put, this backfield is tough to predict for Week 17, leaving Williams as a risky flex option/RB3 at best.

KC RB Darrel Williams - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 vs. Atlanta Falcons

Clyde Edwards-Helaire is out this week, which gives Darrel Williams some relevance. The last time CEH played zero snaps (Week 13), Williams played a healthy 48% of the offensive snaps. However, he had just seven touches for 43 yards in that game. Expect a similar type of performance this week from Williams. He'd be a pretty weak play in Week 16 considering the tough matchup against the Falcons, and the fact Le'Veon Bell is ahead of him on the depth chart.

KC RB Darrel Williams - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 at Buffalo Bills

Darrel Williams saw a bigger workload last week, playing on 40% of the offensive snaps. He also saw five targets and ran 22 pass routes. It's an interesting shift in the Chiefs' offensive strategy, but it didn't work out too well for Williams who had two total touches for 19 yards. As for now, Williams isn't much more than a handcuff for CEH.

KC RB Darrel Williams - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 at Los Angeles Chargers

Darrel Williams is the clear backup in Kansas City as he's the only other running back who received a touch last week outside of CEH. Williams finished with seven carries for 23 yards and caught two passes for seven yards (on two targets). He played on 33% of the snaps while CEH played 67%. Williams will be a solid handcuff for CEH owners, but probably won't produce enough on a weekly basis to warrant a start.

KC RB Darrel Williams - Week 1 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 1 vs. Houston Texans

Clyde Edwards-Helaire is the back to own in Kansas City's backfield, but don't be surprised if Darrel Williams has a sizable role in Week 1. CEH is getting his first NFL action ever this week with the lack of a preseason. Williams finished with 56 touches, 300+ scrimmage yards and four total touchdowns for Kansas City last season. Chiefs GM Brett Veach said of Williams: "There’s a lot of trust in regards to his ability in all phases of the game – running and blocking, in particular, pass pro too." CEH is obviously the guy to start this week if you have him, but Williams could finish with RB3 numbers this week against Houston.

KC RB Darrel Williams - Week 13 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 13 vs. Oakland Raiders

Darrel Williams saw increased playing time the last time Kansas City played due to Damien Williams suffering an injury. Damien has been absent from practice this week, which means we should expect to see a two-man committee between LeSean McCoy and Darrel Williams. Even though it's a favorable matchup, this backfield has been a mess this season and it's hard to see Darrel Williams being anything more than a poor flex play.

KC RB Darrel Williams - Week 11 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 11 at Los Angeles Chargers

LeSean McCoy was inactive last week, which means Darrel Williams had a big role, right? Nope. He played 21% of the offensive snaps, but saw just three touches (two carries, one catch). Unless he sees the ball more often, he's not a strong fantasy option.
