2019 Outlook
Depth Chart
The Chiefs made the decision to move on from Kareem Hunt, which now leaves running back Damien Williams in line for some serious fantasy potential in 2019. Williams made a splash down the stretch in 2018, producing some huge fantasy games down the stretch that almost certainly secured many fantasy league championships. He came out of nowhere in the eyes of many fantasy owners but Williams is an athletically gifted player with elite speed and feature back size. He's simply never been given an opportunity to prove himself as a starting running back in the NFL.

There is some concern that the newly acquired Carlos Hyde will cut into Williams' touches, but the potential upside for a running back in this Kansas City offense makes Williams too tantalizing to pass on simply because we're worried about a veteran plodding running back like Hyde. Williams only started five games for the Chiefs, including in the playoffs, but he caught 24 passes in those contests. If he had played a 16-game season at that pace, he would've finished with 77 catches. That, in addition with his quality rushing ability, in an offense as high-powered as Kansas City's, could mean some seriously monster fantasy numbers this season.

Yes, there are concerns that Williams has never "done it before," but the running back position in the NFL is often a product of situation more than it is player ability. That could be the case with Williams. He may not be an elite-level player, but that certainly doesn't mean that he's incapable of producing elite-level fantasy production. Andy Reid offenses typically feature one back and it seems highly unlikely that it will be Hyde unless Williams goes down.

Williams' current ADP has him going in the middle-to-end of the second round in most leagues, which is a great value for a player who could potentially finish as a high-end RB1 and whose floor, if he remains healthy, should be no lower than a mid-level RB2.

News From The Past 90 Days
LeSean McCoy expected to be inactive
Veteran RB out of favor in Kansas City
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Feb 2, 7:00 am

Kansas City Chiefs
#Chiefs RB LeSean McCoy is expected to be inactive today, with the team slated to choose more defensive depth instead. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: McCoy last played a meaningful snap in Week 5 (6 carries, 16 yards). His fumbling, unwillingness to change his running style that leads him to carrying the ball like a loaf of bread along with weakness in pass protection has allowed rookie Darwin Thompson to pass him on the depth chart. The Chiefs will lean on Damien Williams during Super Bowl LIV.
