2020 Fantasy Outlook
Williams saw a significant uptick in his playing time during his second professional campaign, logging 216 snaps over 12 games prior to his season ending prematurely due to a hip injury. He didn't improve his efficiency as a runner (3.4 YPC) in 2019, but Williams did increase his involvement as a pass catcher, hauling in 15 passes for 167 yards and a score. With Clyde Edwards-Helaire the only safe bet for a key role, Williams and Darwin Thompson are set to serve behind the rookie. Read Past Outlooks

March 16, 2021
Williams signed a one-year contract Tuesday worth up to $2.13 million to remain with the Chiefs, Sam McDowell and Herbie Teope of the Belleville News-Democrat report.
ANALYSIS
The contract includes $930,000 in guaranteed money. Williams took on a larger role in the playoffs last season with injuries bothering Clyde Edwards-Helaire, but Edwards-Helaire and Damien Williams -- who's also expected to return after sitting out last season -- are both safe bets to open above Darrel on the depth chart.

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.
