Kansas City Chiefs RB Damien Williams had nine carries for seven yards against the Denver Broncos on Thursday, Oct. 17. Williams also caught two passes for minus-one yard.
Huddle Up: It's not easy to turn 11 total touches into six yards, but Williams found a way. After capably filling in last year after the team released Kareem Hunt, Williams just hasn't been able to get anything going in 2019. There's still upside there, but it's hard to advocate putting him in your starting lineup until further notice.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Damien Williams rushed just once for six yards and he added a 14-yard catch for touchdown in Week 6 against the Houston Texans.
Huddle Up: The touchdown was nice, but two total touches simply will not do. Avoid him outside of deeper fantasy leagues until he starts to see an increase in workload again. The Chiefs travel to meet the Broncos in Week 7 on Thursday night.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Damien Williams (knee) carried the ball nine times for 23 yards against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, Oct. 6. He also caught three passes for 15 yards.
Huddle Up: KC rarely ran the ball, but Williams had all nine of the RBs carries as LeSean McCoy and Darrel Williams combined for zero. This game has a "flush it and forget it" sort of feel so don't focus too much of Williams' modest production. Instead, focus on the fact that he was the RB of choice, which could continue next week against the Texans.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Damien Williams (knee) is active for the Week 5 game against the Indianapolis Colts.
Huddle Up: Williams was able to practice all week, so this isn't much of a surprise. It remains to be seen how the snaps in the backfield will be distributed between Williams, LeSean McCoy and Darrel Williams. Damien Williams is a risky flex fantasy play, because he could have a big role, or a very small role as they ease him back into action.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Damien Williams (knee) is expected to play in Week 5's game against the Indianapolis Colts, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Williams was listed as questionable on the injury report despite being a full participant in all three of the team's practice sessions during the week. He can be viewed as a flex option in many fantasy formats, although it's uncertain how many offensive snaps he will see due to the presence of LeSean McCoy and Darrel Williams, who both played well during his absence.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Damien Williams (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 4, but is listed as questionable for Week 5.
Huddle Up: Williams was a full participant all week and should be in uniform for the Chiefs. It is not known if he will regain his starting role, but he can still be at least a flex option in leagues.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Damien Williams (knee) is expected to return from a two-week absence and play in Week 5 versus the Indianapolis Colts, according to head coach Andy Reid.
Huddle Up: Williams has been a full participant in practice all week. The question that needs to be answered before Sunday night is if he retains his starting gig or fell behind Darrel Williams during his absence. It's also possible Reid decides to make this a three-man committee along with LeSean McCoy. Until Reid clears this backfield situation up, consider both Williams flex plays.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Damien Williams (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 3.
Huddle Up: Williams should return after missing the last two games and probably will regain the starting running back job. He can be a No. 2 running back if he receives his normal workload.

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs RB Damien Williams (knee) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 2.
Huddle Up: Williams has missed the last few games but appears to have a good chance to play in Week 5. He may be eased back and share snaps with LeSean McCoy but could still be a No. 2 running back or flex option.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Damien Williams (knee) returned to practice Wednesday, Oct. 2. His amount of participation is unknown.
Huddle Up: Williams has been largely ineffective this season, and LeSean McCoy has played well. Could Williams fall back a bit in the duo? It's absolutely possible. If Williams is good to go, he'd be a flex consideration against the Indianapolis Colts.
