Player Outlook
Williams signed with Arizona this offseason, and he is expected to be the primary backup to James Conner. Williams is worth drafting with a late-round pick as a lottery ticket in the majority of leagues. In 2021 with the Chiefs, Williams had over 1,000 total yards and eight total touchdowns, including 47 receptions. He's proven to be a quality handcuff, and he could emerge as a weekly starter in all leagues if Conner were to miss any time. Williams is a great reserve running back to stash on your bench.

  • Cardinals' Darrel Williams: Lands deal with Arizona

    Williams signed with the Cardinals on Tuesday, NFL reporter Jordan Schultz reports. Williams finished the 2021 campaign with 558 rushing yards, 452 receiving yards and eight total touchdowns across 17 appearances for Kansas City last season. The AFC West squad reportedly wanted to re-sign Williams this offseason, but the 27-year-old opted to test free agency instead. In Arizona, Williams will compete with rookie Keaontay Ingram and second-year back Eno Benjamin for touches behind James Connor, but Williams' experience and pass protection skills likely land him as the favorite to earn the No. 2 spot on the depth chart to start 2022.

  • Chiefs' Darrel Williams: Set to test free agency

    Williams is slated to test the free-agent market, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports. Per Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, the Chiefs tried to re-sign Williams -- who worked in tandem with Clyde Edwards-Helaire last season -- ahead of the opening of free agency. With no deal arrived at, the 26-year-old, who led the team with 558 rushing yards (on 144 carries) and added 47 catches for 452 yards and eight total TDs in 17 games in 2021, now is on track have a chance to field offers from other teams looking for backfield help.

  • Chiefs' Darrel Williams: Suits up Sunday

    Williams (toe) is listed as active for Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Bengals, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports. After logging a full practice Wednesday, Williams, who was inactive for last weekend's divisional-round win over Buffalo, was listed as limited Thursday and Friday, before being officially deemed questionable ahead of Sunday's contest. While Williams is in uniform, it remains to be seen how much of a workload he'll see in his return to action, with both Jerick McKinnon and Clyde Edwards-Helaire also in Kansas City's backfield mix. With that in mind, Williams, who recorded 144 carries for 558 yards and six TDs to go along with 47 catches for 452 yards and a pair of receiving scores in 17 regular-season appearances, profiles as a hit-or-miss fantasy option versus Cincinnati, while coming off his toe injury.

  • Chiefs' Darrel Williams: Chance to play Sunday

    Williams (toe) is trending toward a game-time decision for Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Bengals, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports. Williams was forced out of a Week 18 win at Denver and has managed just eight offensive snaps and one carry in one appearance in the meantime in the wild-card round versus the Steelers. Despite being questionable last Sunday against the Bills -- as he is this weekend -- he was among the Chiefs' inactives in the divisional round. Williams apparently is feeling better this time around, but the team ultimately will make a decision on his availability about 90 minutes before Sunday's 3:00 p.m. ET kickoff. Even if Williams is active, though, he may be a distant third in the backfield pecking order behind Jerick McKinnon and Clyde Edwards-Helaire.

  • Chiefs' Darrel Williams: Deemed questionable for AFCCG

    Williams (toe) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals. Williams was listed as a full practice participant Wednesday before sliding back to limited Thursday and Friday. He also was listed as questionable for KC's first two playoff games, but he logged just eight snaps in the wild-card round and was inactive for the divisional-round win over Buffalo. Even if Williams plays, he may just be the No. 3 back behind Jerick McKinnon and Clyde Edwards-Helaire at this point, especially if he's fighting through pain.

  • Chiefs' Darrel Williams: Logs limited practice

    Williams (toe) was limited at practice Thursday. Williams practiced fully Wednesday, but at this stage it's unclear if his limitations Thursday were maintenance-related or indicative of a setback. What the running back is able to do during Friday's session should add clarity with regard to his status for Sunday's AFC Championship Game versus the Bengals. If Williams is available this weekend, his return to the mix would bolster a Kansas City backfield that was led by Jerick McKinnon and Clyde Edwards-Helaire in the team's divisional-round win over the Bills.

  • Chiefs' Darrel Williams: Logs full practice

    Williams (toe) practiced fully Wednesday. Williams, who returned to limited participation in practice last Friday, was inactive for Kansas City's divisional-round win over the Bills. However, his return to full participation to begin the current week paves the way for the running back to be available for Sunday's AFC Championship Game versus the Bengals, barring any setbacks. If Williams suits up this weekend, he would re-enter a backfield that also includes Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Jerick McKinnon. When all three players have been healthy this season, Williams hasn't typically seen enough volume to be a worthy fantasy option.

  • Chiefs' Darrel Williams: Sitting out divisional round

    Williams (toe) is inactive for Sunday night's divisional-round game against the Bills, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports. After missing practice Wednesday and Thursday, Williams returned to a limited session Friday but will sit this one out. Meanwhile, Kansas City welcomes back Clyde Edwards-Helaire (shoulder) -- who last played Week 16 -- to a running back corps that also includes Jerick McKinnon, who led the team's ground game in last weekend's wild-card win over the Steelers, with Derrick Gore on hand in reserve. In Williams' absence, expect Edwards-Helaire to reclaim a solid share of the team's touches, with McKinnon involved as well in the wake of his effective outing in the Chiefs' playoff opener.

  • Chiefs' Darrel Williams: Misses another practice

    Williams (toe) didn't practice Thursday, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports. Williams missed Wednesday's practice as well, so what he's able to do Friday will be telling with regard to his chances of suiting up for Sunday's divisional-round game against the Bills. While Williams' status for the contest is cloudy for now, Clyde Edwards-Helaire (shoulder) has been practicing this week and thus is trending toward a return to action versus Buffalo. In Kansas City's wild-card win over the Steelers this past weekend, Williams logged just eight snaps on offense and one carry, while Jerick McKinnon led the team's backfield with 12 carries on 51 snaps.

  • Chiefs' Darrel Williams: Misses practice

    Williams (toe) didn't practice Wednesday, while Clyde Edwards-Helaire participated in some capacity, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports. Williams played through the injury in Sunday's 42-21 win over the Steelers, but he was limited to a backup role (eight snaps) and finished with four yards and a lost fumble (which T.J. Watt returned for a touchdown). With Edwards-Helaire missing the game altogether, Jerick McKinnon was the lead back and ultimately took 18 touches for 142 yards and a touchdown. The Chiefs' coaching staff hasn't revealed whether McKinnon will get the chance to repeat that workload Sunday against Buffalo in the divisional round, with Edwards-Helaire perhaps now the bigger threat than Williams.

  • Chiefs' Darrel Williams: Suits up, limited to backup role

    Williams (toe) had just one carry for four yards, was charged with a fumble, and didn't draw a target in the passing game in a 42-21 win over the Steelers. Clyde Edwards-Helaire (shoulder) missed his third straight contest, but it was Jerick McKinnon who drew the start took over lead-back duties instead of Williams. Perhaps the 26-year-old -- who was listed as questionable heading into the contest -- was not as ready to play as pregame reports indicated, resulting in a underwhelming usage and a poor fantasy showing. He was effectively benched for the remainder of the contest after he was involved in a sloppy handoff from Mecole Hardman that resulted in a fumble that was scooped up by T.J. Watt and returned for a Steelers touchdown. The status of Edwards-Helaire is still uncertain for next round's tilt against the Bills, but McKinnon looks like the hot hand among Kansas City's remaining backfield options for the time being.

  • Chiefs' Darrel Williams: Suiting up Sunday

    Williams (toe) is listed as active for Sunday's wild-card game against the Steelers, Matt McMullen of the Chiefs' official site reports. Willliams approached the contest listed as questionable after practicing in a limited fashion this past week, but by Friday coach Andy Reid indicated that he thought the running back would be available Sunday, barring any pregame setbacks, per Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star. With his availability for Kansas City's playoff opener confirmed, Williams is in line to head Kansas City's rushing attack versus Pittsburgh, with Clyde Edwards-Helaire (shoulder) ruled out for the third game in a row. Meanwhile, Derrick Gore and Jerick McKinnon are on hand to fill complementary/change-of-pace roles behind Williams.

  • Chiefs' Darrel Williams: Questionable for playoff opener

    Williams (toe) is listed as questionable for Sunday's wild-card game against the Steelers. Williams was able to practice in a limited fashion all week and despite getting a designation for the postseason opener, the running back appears to be trending toward playing, according to Adam Teicher of ESPN.com. On that note, head coach Andy Reid relayed Friday that he thinks Williams will be available "unless something happens" ahead of Sunday's 8:15 p.m. ET kickoff, per Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star. Assuming he's active for the contest, Williams would be in line to head Kansas City's rushing attack, with Clyde Edwards-Helaire (shoulder) ruled out for the third game in a row. In that context, Derrick Gore and Jerick McKinnon will fill complementary roles behind Williams.

  • Chiefs' Darrel Williams: Another limited practice

    Williams (toe) remained limited at practice Thursday. Meanwhile, fellow running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire (shoulder) didn't practice after logging a limited session Wednesday. Friday's final injury report should add some clarity with regard to the duo's chances of suiting up for Sunday's playoff game against the Steelers, but at this point Williams' availability for the contest looks more secure than Edwards-Helaire's.

  • Chiefs' Darrel Williams: Limited in practice

    Williams (toe) was listed as a limited practice participant Wednesday. Clyde Edwards-Helaire (shoulder) was also limited, with head coach Andy Reid noting that both backs "looked good" in practice, per Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star. While Reid added that the team will continue to evaluate both Edwards-Helaire and Williams in the coming days, the Chiefs should have a decent chance at having their top two backs available for Sunday's wild-card game against the Steelers.

  • Chiefs' Darrel Williams: Suited up for practice

    Williams (toe) and fellow Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire (shoulder) both took the field for Wednesday's practice, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports. Williams' presence on the field supports the notion that he avoided a serious injury when he was removed from the Chiefs' Week 18 win over Denver. However, his role may nonetheless be set to decline, with Edwards-Helaire also hoping to suit up for Sunday's wild-card game against the Steelers, after missing the final two games of the regular season.

  • Chiefs' Darrel Williams: May miss no time with toe injury

    Coach Andy Reid said Monday that he believes Williams (toe) will be able to play in Sunday's wild-card game against the Steelers, Matt McMullen of the Chiefs' official site reports. Williams departed Saturday's regular-season finale at Denver due to a toe injury, which Reid described as "still a little tender." At the same time, Clyde Edwards-Helaire continues to contend with a shoulder injury that sidelined him for both Weeks 17 and 18. The situation will be one to monitor because if Edwards-Helaire is unable to make it all the way back, Williams again would feature as the Chiefs' main running back, assuming he's available himself. After Edwards-Helaire and Williams, Derrick Gore is the likely early-down runner, with Jerick McKinnon available in a change-of-pace role.

  • Chiefs' Darrel Williams: Exits Saturday's game

    Williams was forced out of Saturday's game against the Broncos with a toe injury. Prior to his exit from the contest, Williams logged seven carries for 17 yards and caught three of his four targets for 30 yards. Next up for Kansas City's backfield touches in his absence are Derrick Gore and Jerick McKinnon, with Clyde Edwards-Helaire (shoulder) inactive Week 18.

  • Chiefs' Darrel Williams: In line for lead role Saturday

    With Clyde Edwards-Helaire (shoulder) ruled out for Saturday's regular-season finale against the Broncos, Williams is in line to head Kansas City's backfield in the contest. Meanwhile, look for Derrick Gore to work in a complementary role Saturday, with Jerick McKinnon on hand in reserve. With Edwards-Helaire also out Week 17, Williams carried 14 times for 88 yards and two touchdowns while catching all three of his targets for 19 yards in this past Sunday's loss to the Bengals. With another start on tap this weekend, Williams profiles as a viable option in Week 18 fantasy lineups.

  • Chiefs' Darrel Williams: Big game in lead role

    Williams rushed 14 times for 88 yards and two touchdowns while catching all three of his targets for 19 yards in Sunday's 34-31 loss to the Bengals. Williams excelled in the lead role with Clyde Edwards-Helaire (shoulder) inactive. He benefited from Travis Kelce and Patrick Mahomes being ruled just short of the goal line on two separate second-quarter drives, as the running back scored a one-yard touchdown on the ensuing play in both cases. If Edwards-Helaire can't go in the season finale against Denver, Williams should continue to lead the Chiefs backfield as Kansas City attempts to secure the top seed in the AFC.
