Kansas City Chiefs RB Darrel Williams (hamstring) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Thursday, Dec. 5.
Huddle Up: Damien Williams (ribs) has a chance to return this week, but it's anything but a sure thing. Darwin Thompson and Spencer Ware figure to share reps otherwise. Look for LeSean McCoy to take as much as he can handle this week against the New England Patriots. It's a midrange matchup, and he's an elite flex option. Thompson and Ware aren't really solid options to be running out there when most leagues are in the fantasy playoffs.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Darrel Williams (hamstring) left the Week 13 game against the Oakland Raiders due to a hamstring injury and he is questionable to return.
Huddle Up: With Williams on the shelf, on what appeared to be during a non-contact situation, it would be LeSean McCoy shouldering the load.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Darrel Williams rushed 11 times for 35 yards and a touchdown while adding two catches for eight yards on three targets in Week 11 against the Los Angeles Chargers.
Huddle Up: Williams was called upon for more touches down the stretch with LeSean McCoy (concussion) and Damien Williams (ribs) leaving with injuries, leaving Darrel Williams as the lone man standing in the backfield. He could be a solid fantasy option if Shady and Damien Williams are still out after the bye in Week 12.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Darrel Williams carried twice for one yard and added two receptions for five yards against the Denver Broncos in Week 7.
Huddle Up: Williams seems to be third on the pecking order behind LeSean McCoy and Damien Williams when everyone is healthy, which is unfortunate since he flashed some upside in Weeks 3 and 4. If Patrick Mahomes misses significant time it could force a schematic shift to feature the three backs more prominently, but that's a "believe it when you see it" scenario. For now, Williams can't be started.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Darrel Williams didn't have a carry in Week 6 against the Houston Texans and he managed just one reception for 52 yards on two targets.
Huddle Up: One touch, albeit a nice play, will simply not get it done for fantasy owners. LeSean McCoy had 10 total touches with Damien Williams seeing two touches. Right now they're riding Shady, and that's no good for the usage of either of the backs named Williams. The Chiefs hit the road to battle the Broncos in Week 7 on Thursday.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Darrel Williams did not have a carry and was not targeted as a receiver in Week 5 against the Indianapolis Colts.
Huddle Up: With Damien Williams back in action, Darrel Williams faded into the background. He did some good things the previous two games, though, and if Damien continues to struggle the Chiefs could take another look at Darrel.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Darrel Williams rushed eight times for just 13 yards in Week 4 against the Detroit Lions, although he did have two rushing scores. He also added three grabs for 43 yards on four targets.
Huddle Up: Williams saw a larger role with Damien Williams sidelined again, but he struggled running the ball and LeSean McCoy was once again depended upon as the top back. However, the scores were at least nice. As long as Shady is healthy, Darrel Williams has rather minimal fantasy appeal outside of the deepest PPR leagues. The Chiefs host the Colts in Week 5.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Darrel Williams rushed nine times for 62 yards in Week 3 against the Baltimore Ravens, and he added five receptions for 47 yards on five targets.
Huddle Up: Williams picked up the slack with Damien Williams sidelined by a knee injury and he did a good job. LeSean McCoy was also banged up in this game, too. If Damien Williams is sidelined again, and McCoy is forced to miss time, Darrel Williams could be a fantasy surprise heading into Week 4 at Detroit.
