RB Darrel Williams signed with the Cardinals this offseason.

Former teammate Patrick Mahomes vouched for Williams, informing Arizona that he was a back he both liked/trusted. Williams posted 1,000 yards from scrimmage, scored 8 TDs and had zero fumbles on 191 touches in 2021.

He also proved that he could shoulder the load with Clyde Edwards-Helaire sidelined with injury. In the six games that Williams was the clear-cut starter in the Chiefs backfield, he averaged 19 fantasy points per game (PPR) on 18.3 touches per game. Also averaged nearly 100 yards from scrimmage (96.3).

Williams is the James Conner backup to target across all formats, as he'd likely inherit the RB1 role should the injury-prone starter go down. His body of work as a receiver and goal-line back present him immediate fantasy RB1 upside.

The former UDFA led the Chiefs backfield in red-zone touches and averaged 4.5 receptions per game as the starter in 2021. His 47 catches overall ranked ninth.

Darrel Williams to sign with Arizona

Free-agent RB Darrel Williams has agreed to terms on a contract with the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact

The 27-year-old played four years with Kansas City, racking up 912 rushing yards, 762 receiving yards, and 14 combined touchdowns. He will presumably slot in as the backup to James Conner in the Arizona offense, and he becomes a prime handcuff for fantasy managers, particularly given Conner's injury history.
