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.

Facing backup competition
RBKansas City Chiefs
June 25, 2019
Williams shared backfield reps with Damien Williams, Carlos Hyde and Darwin Thompson during the offseason program, Blair Kerkhoff of The Kansas City Star reports.
ANALYSIS
Darrel Williams caught on as an undrafted rookie last year and had a late-season stretch as the Chiefs' No. 2 running back after Kareem Hunt was cut and Spencer Ware was injured. Both players found new teams in the offseason, but Kansas City brought in Hyde and Thompson to compete for depth roles, leaving Darrel Williams on the roster bubble ahead of training camp. Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy has already named Damien Williams as the starter.
