Kyren Williams Week 3 Outlook - Rams at Bengals

By Derek Brown (FantasyPros), Thu, Sep 21st 2023, 8:57am EDT

Williams played 95% of the snaps last week, making Cam Akers expendable. He handled 20 touches, churning out 100 total yards with an 18.1% Target share. Among 48 qualified backs, Williams ranks 25th in yards after contact per attempt and 26th in elusive rating. While these aren't eye-popping numbers, volume is king, and Williams is the king of the Los Angeles backfield. Cincinnati has allowed the eighth-highest explosive run rate. This run defense also has the second-worst missed tackles allowed rate. The Bengals have given up the seventh-highest yards per carry to gap runs (Williams 82.8% gap). Week 3 Positional Value: Matchup-proof RB1
