Damien Williams signs one-year deal with Falcons

Per Ian Rapoport, running back Damien Williams is signing a one-year deal with the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Impact

Williams will be joining a Falcons squad that is in desperate need for offensive weapons. Cordarrelle Patterson, who was a fantasy darling last season, is an unrestricted free agent. With Mike Davis as the only other fantasy relevant running back on the current Falcons depth chart, Williams could see a nice workload. The Oklahoma product has a pass-catching skill set in a Falcons offense with a lot of vacated targets from 2021. Of course, the Falcons might still invest in a running back through the draft which would change everything.

Bears running back Damien Williams hauled in three of five targets for 33 yards and a touchdown against the Vikings in Week 18.

Fantasy Impact

This was the first time Williams had a fantasy-relevant performance since Week 5 versus the Raiders. He's not worth rostering in 2022.

Damien Williams (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Fantasy Impact

He is the third man up on this depth chart at this point, he really doesn't offer a tremendous amount of value other than a depth piece at this point.

Bears running back Damien Williams (knee) did not practice on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Williams has now missed two consecutive practices due to the injury he suffered in Week 8. His status on Saturday will offer more insight into his availability against the Steelers this week, but it does not seem very likely that he'll suit up. If this is the case, Ryan Nall and Artavis Pierce would fill a backup role behind rookie Khalil Herbert.
