Darrel Williams and Chiefs reach agreement on one-year deal

RB Darrel Williams and the Chiefs have agreed on a one-year, $2.13 million contract. The deal is includes $930,000 guaranteed.

Fantasy Impact

Williams remains in Kansas City on a one-year deal and is expected to compliment former first-round pick RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire. He logged 39 carries for 169 rushing yards while hauling in 18 receptions for 116 yards and one touchdown across 16 games. Williams will help bolster the Chiefs backfield, but is mainly an option for fantasy managers who have CEH rostered.

Darrel Williams takes back seat to CEH in Super Bowl LV, totals 15 yards

RB Darrel Williams rushed for five yards on two carries and caught two passes for 10 yards in the Chiefs' 31-9 loss to the Buccaneers in Super Bowl LV.

Fantasy Impact

Williams saw seven targets in the passing game but only reeled in two catches as Mahomes missed him on a couple of easy dump passes in the flat mixed in with some blown-up screen plays. Williams played well as the lead-back for the Chiefs in the playoffs, but he is still the backup to CEH. He'll be a restricted free agent this offseason, and if the Chiefs elect not to resign him, he'll likely land on another team next season after being a legitimate change-of-pace back for the Chiefs this season.

Darrel Williams totals 61 yards and a TD in Sunday's win over the Bills

Chiefs RB Darrel Williams rushed 13 times for 52 yards and a touchdown and added nine receiving yards in the Chiefs' 38-24 win over the Bills in the AFC Championship game.

Fantasy Impact

Williams is now the lead back for the Chiefs, and he played well, rushing for 50+ yards with a touchdown against a solid Bills defense. CEH went off for 160 yards in their first meeting, but Williams still found success in the ground game. He'll likely continue to lead the timeshare against the Bucs in Super Bowl LV.

Darrel Williams leads Chiefs in carries, tallies 94 yards in win over CLE

Chiefs RB Darrel Williams took over the lead back duties on Sunday, rushing for 78 yards on 14 carries and four receptions for 16 receiving yards in the Chiefs' 22-17 win over the Browns.

Fantasy Impact

With Clyde Edwards-Helaire inactive, the Chiefs turned to Williams. He looked great, running hard between the tackles and out-touched Le'Veon Bell 17:3. There's doubt CEH will be ready for the AFC Championship game, so Williams should be a popular selection in DFS lineups next week. After all, CEH ran for a season-high 161 yards on the Bills in Week 6.

Darrel Williams sees minimal action, catches one pass in loss to Chargers

Chiefs RB Darrel Williams caught one pass for two yards and was not used in the rushing game in the Chiefs' 38-21 loss to the Chargers in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact

Williams was not hurt but likely saw a reduced snap count due to the Chiefs' locking up a first-round bye last week. The Chiefs will need Williams in the playoffs, especially if Clyde Edwards-Helaire cannot make it back in time.
