Player Outlook

Kerwynn Williams signed with the Chiefs this offseason, and he will compete for a role as a reserve running back behind Kareem Hunt. The Chiefs have a loaded backfield with Hunt, Spencer Ware, Charcandrick West, and Damien Williams, and it's doubtful Kerwynn Williams gets a big role this season barring an injury. In 2017 with the Cardinals, Williams started the final five games with David Johnson (wrist) and Adrian Peterson (neck) out, but he failed to score double digits in Fantasy points in a standard league in any outing despite 16 or more touches in any game. Keep an eye on Williams' role with Kansas City, but he should not be drafted in the majority of leagues.

Player News
  • Williams is slated to sign a one-year deal with the Chiefs, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Williams joins a crowded Kansas City backfield that is headed by Kareem Hunt and at least for now also includes Charcandrick West, Spencer Ware, Damien Williams and Akeem Hunt. The 26-year-old Kerwynn Williams logged a career-high 120 carries for 426 yards and TD to go along with 10 catches for 93 yards in 16 games for the Cardinals in 2017, but in his new context, Williams' path to touches is unclear in the absence of future roster trimming/fellow running back injuries.

  • Williams ended the 2017 season with 120 carries for 426 yards and one touchdown. He also tacked on 10 receptions (on 15 targets) for 93 yards. Aside from TDs, Williams set career bests in sheer output on both the ground and as a receiver. The expanded workload was made possible by injuries to both David Johnson (wrist) and Adrian Peterson (neck). The latter set the stage for Williams' late-season run, which included at least 16 rushes in five consecutive games to close out the campaign. His YPC during that stretch (3.9) was acceptable enough and likely will spur the Cardinals to re-sign the unrestricted free-agent-to-be this offseason to serve as depth behind Johnson in 2018 and beyond.

  • Cardinals' Kerwynn Williams: Playing Week 17
    By RotoWire Staff

    Williams (quadriceps) is listed as active Sunday at Seattle, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. In four consecutive starts, Williams garnered 47 percent (133 of 281) of the offensive snaps, averaging 18 touches and 77.8 yards from scrimmage per game. The breakdown of backfield roles hasn't allowed Williams to reach the end zone, though. Instead, D.J. Foster has handled clear passing situations and Elijhaa Penny (hand, groin) is the short-yardage back. Despite the reality of his situation, Williams will seek a breakout performance against the Seahawks' 18th-ranked run defense.

  • Cardinals' Kerwynn Williams: Listed as questionable
    By RotoWire Staff

    Williams (quadriceps/ribs) remained limited at Friday's practice and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Seattle, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports. Williams played through the same pair of injuries in Sunday's 23-0 win over the Giants, after managing just one limited practice during the week. Given that he was a limited participant at every session this week, he appears to be on the right side of questionable as the Cardinals prepare to close out a disappointing season with a tough matchup. Williams landed between 16 and 20 carries with 51 to 97 rushing yards each of the past four weeks, but he still doesn't offer a ton of upside with D.J. Foster handling obvious passing downs and Elijhaa Penny (hand/groin) a threat to poach goal-line carries.

  • Williams (quad/ribs) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports. Williams seems to be healthier than last week, which he kicked off with back-to-back DNPs before practicing in a limited capacity Friday. After getting the all-clear to play Sunday against the Giants, he earned 16 carries and three targets on his 33 offensive snaps, racking up 65 yards from scrimmage in the process. Williams still hasn't reached the end zone since Week 1, but an upcoming matchup with the Seahawks, who have allowed the eighth-most TDs (14) to running backs this season, could be just what the doctor ordered.
