The Kansas City Chiefs placed running back Darrel Williams (hamstring) on season-ending Injured Reserve on Thursday. In corresponding moves, defensive back Alex Brown was added to the 53-man roster and wide receiver Gehrig Dieter was signed to the practice squad. With Williams done for the year and Damien Williams (ribs) questionable to play in Week 14 against the Patriots, the Chiefs backfield might be down to LeSean McCoy, Darwin Thompson and Spencer Ware this Sunday. The Chiefs have been limiting Shady's repetitions to keep him fresh for the stretch run, so Thompson could have a sizeable role this weekend if Williams doesn't play. Consider McCoy on the RB2/3 borderline, while Thompson could be a fantasy wild card in both DFS and season-long leagues.
Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said that running backs Damien Williams (ribs) and Darrel Williams (hamstring) will not practice on Wednesday. Darrel is unlikely to suit up in Week 14 against the Patriots, while Damien still has a chance to be active if he can get in some practice time later this week. If neither play, it'll be LeSean McCoy and Darwin Thompson sharing work in what could be a high-scoring affair. Thompson looked better than Shady in Week 13 and would be the preferred RB2/3 for fantasy owners in deeper leagues. If one or both of the Williams are active on Sunday, it'll lower everyone's ceiling in this crowded backfield.
Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said that there's a good chance running back Darrel Williams (hamstring) doesn't play in Week 14 against the Patriots. It's bad timing, since Williams had a receiving touchdown in the win over the Raiders and Damien Williams (ribs) isn't a lock to return against the Patriots. If both Williams' are out, it would mean that LeSean McCoy and Darwin Thompson would share the backfield work, giving Shady low-end RB2 value and Thompson clear flex appeal in deeper leagues in what could easily be a high-scoring affair between two powerhouses. Make sure to check the practice status of both Williams' this week.
Kansas City Chiefs running back Darrel Williams was the backup running back to veteran LeSean McCoy for the Week 13 matchup with the Oakland Raiders. Both Williams and McCoy were unable to get anything going in the run game. Third string back Darwin Thompson was the only Chiefs' running back to have a solid game on the ground. Williams left during the second half and was unable to return. He finished the game with 13 rushing yards on six attempts. He salvaged his fantasy value by catching a three yard touchdown. The Chiefs have a tough matchup with the Patriots in Week 14. Williams should be ignored in most formats, but might have deep league flex value if the Chiefs are still banged up in the backfield.
Kansas City Chiefs running back Darrel Williams is expected to back up veteran LeSean McCoy for Sunday's game against the Oakland Raiders. Lead back Damien Williams (ribs) has already been ruled out for this contest. McCoy is expected to be the lead back, but Williams should get work behind him. However, Williams will be a touchdown-dependent option for this one. He could be a deep league flex option, but McCoy is expected to see a majority of the carries.
Kansas City Chiefs running back Darrel Williams was not expected to do much heading into the game, but saw more action due to injuries. Lead back Damien Williams (ribs) left in the second quarter and did not return to the game. Veteran LeSean McCoy saw more action as well, but it was likely because of the injury to Williams. The third string back Williams saw 11 attempts for 35 yards and one touchdown. The Chiefs head into a bye week, so Williams probably won't have much fantasy value going forward. He's not worth an add in basically any format despite a decent fantasy output here.
Kansas City Chiefs running back Darrel Williams was not used in the running game for the team during their Week 6 matchup against the Houston Texans. Lead back Damien Williams saw just one carry during the loss to Houston. Veteran LeSean McCoy lead the team with eight carries for 44 yards in this one. Williams caught one pass for 52 yards, but that was all he did in this one. He's been pushed into the third string role in KC, so his fantasy value is rapidly fading. Williams will be a tough guy to trust in most formats for Week 7 versus the Denver Broncos.
