Fantasy Impact:

“When he shined, he shined at a level that helped us get over a hump in a few games — and obviously helped us in winning the Super Bowl,” McCullough said of Williams. Willams played just 11 games last season, splitting time with a number of Chiefs RBs, but he was the primary ball carrier the majority of the games he played. He rushed for 104 yards and a score in the Super Bowl, and for that the Chiefs may have to give him opportunities early on this season. Williams is only under contract for one more season, and Kansas City went ahead and drafted his eventual replacement in Clyde Edwards-Helaire in the first round. It’ll be interesting to see the split between the two backs, but figure they’ll both play a role early on in the season.
