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.

$Signed a three-year, $1.73 million contract with the Chiefs in April of 2018.
Minimal production again
RBKansas City Chiefs
October 20, 2019
Williams logged two carries for one yard and hauled in both of his targets for another five yards Thursday against the Broncos.
ANALYSIS
Williams has maintained a minor offensive role even after the return of Damien Williams, but it's not enough for him to warrant fantasy ownership as much more than a handcuff at this point. Still, the fact that he's basically matching Damien in snap counts indicates he could sport some fantasy value should one of the other two miss time.
