Darrel Williams working out with Saints Monday

According to Jordan Schultz, former Chiefs and Cardinals RB Darrel Williams is working out with the New Orleans Saints on Monday following their preseason opener.

Fantasy Impact

Williams is 28 and heading into his sixth season, spending 2022 as a backup RB in Arizona. In 2021 with the Chiefs, though, he had 1,010 scrimmage yards and eight total touchdowns, servicing as both a runner and a pass catcher. The Saints suffered an injury to rookie RB Kendre Miller, and though we don’t know the extent of that injury, working out Williams is probably a sign they’re looking for some more insurance given Alvin Kamara’s suspension.

Darrel Williams (hip) expected to return from IR at 'some point'

Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury said RB Darrel Williams is expected to return from injured reserve at some point.

Fantasy Impact

Williams was placed on the IR after Week 8, so he will first be eligible to return in Week 12. With the release of Eno Benjamin, Keaontay Ingram is currently the backup to James Conner. It sounds like Williams has a chance to return some time in the next few weeks.

Darrel Williams (hip) placed on IR

The Arizona Cardinals placed Darrel Williams on IR on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Williams had just returned from a knee injury in Week 8 when he injured his hip against the Vikings this past weekend. Kliff Kingsbury is hoping James Conner will be ready to return for the Seahawks game. Eno Benjamin and Keaontay Ingram are the other players in the Cardinals backfield while Williams is sidelined.

Darrel Williams was sidelined at Cardinals practice on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

This seems to be a new injury as Williams was dealing with a knee injury when he missed Weeks 6 and 7. James Conner was limited at practice on Wednesday. This backfield will be worth monitoring the rest of this week.

Darrel Williams gets seven touches on Sunday

Darrel Williams rushed five times for eight yards and caught two of his three targets for six yards in Arizona's loss to Minnesota on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Williams returned to the lineup and played 21 snaps to Eno Benjamin's 50 in Week 8. He may have been limited after missing two games with a knee injury and could see more action in Week 9 if James Conner remains sidelined. Williams is no better than a stash in deep leagues right now, as he appears to be third on the Cardinal's running back depth chart.
