Williams remains the Chiefs' starting RB for at least two more weeks while Clyde Edwards-Helaire recovers from a sprained MCL. Williams played 64% of the Chiefs' offensive snaps in Week 7 and was the only running back to carry the ball for Kansas City, but a negative game script limited Williams to 5-20-0 rushing. He also had 3-30-0 receiving on four targets. The previous week, game script went much better for the Chiefs, and Williams had 21-62-2 rushing and 3-27-0 receiving. Williams ranks RB16 this week and is close to a must-start in all but very shallow leagues.

Darrel Williams totals 50 yards in Week 7

Chiefs RB Darrel Williams rushes 5 times for 20 yards and adds three receptions for 30 yards in Sunday's loss to the Titans.

Fantasy Impact

The Chiefs failed to get anything going on offense in Week 7. Williams was no exception. He'll remain a low-end RB1 or high-end RB2 until Clyde Edwards-Helaire returns to the lineup. Williams will look to bounce back in a good matchup against the Giants in Week 8.
