2019 Fantasy Outlook
Williams went undrafted in 2018, but managed to claim a roster spot out of training camp. The rookie tailback rushed just 13 times for 44 yards all season and saw only 62 snaps on special teams. While Kareem Hunt has since departed due to off-the-field issues, Damien Williams tops the depth chart and offseason acquisitions of Carlos Hyde (free agency), Darwin Thompson (sixth-round draft pick) and James Williams (UDFA) could force Williams to earn his spot again in 2019.

Remains in fold for 2020

February 19, 2020
Williams (hamstring) carried 41 times for 141 yards (3.4 YPC) and caught 15 of 19 targets for 167 yards across 12 games before the Chiefs placed him on injured reserve in December.
ANALYSIS
Prior to being shut down with the hamstring issue, Williams had shown improvement in his second professional season, taking on a greater role on passing downs while also seeing action on special teams. Williams should be fully recovered from the hamstring issue by the time training camp arrives, putting him on track to enter the final season of his rookie deal in optimal health. He'll likely return to a similar depth role in the backfield in 2020, as both Damien Williams and Darwin Thompson remain under contract.
