Williams has been Sean McVay's new "Todd Gurley." He has played at least 95% of the snaps in each of the last two games, averaging 16 touches and 82.5 total yards. His role has been impressive, but his level of play hasn't been. Among 59 qualifying backs, he is 48th in missed tackles forced per attempt and 42nd in yards after contact per attempt. Over the last two weeks, he has led all running backs with a 77% route run per team dropback rate. In that same span, he's second in Target share (18.2%), but he's only 31st in YPRR. With his every snap role and pass game usage, he's an every-week RB1, but this matchup will be tough. Indy has allowed the 13th-lowest explosive run rate while having the eighth-highest stuff rate. They have held backs to the 12th-lowest yards after contact per attempt. The Colts have allowed the sixth-highest yards per reception to running backs, so that's a small feather in Williams' cap. Week 4 Positional Value: RB1

Kyren Williams sees all of the running back touches in Week 3 loss

Kyren Williams rushed for 38 yards on 10 carries in Rams’ 19-16 loss to the Bengals. He also caught 2-of-7 targets for an additional 27 yards through the air.

Fantasy Impact

Williams struggled to get anything consistent going on the ground against a stout Bengals’ defense. The positive for fantasy managers is that Williams was the only running back to record a carry and a target in the game. Williams is the clear lead back for the Rams and should remain a solid flex option against the Colts in Week 4.
