Williams was a revelation in 2023 as he quickly kicked Cam Akers to the curb, taking over the starting job in Week 2. Williams was the RB2 in fantasy points per game, ranking fourth in red zone touches, first in snap share, and fourth in opportunity share. Among 68 qualifying backs, he ranked 25th in missed tackles forced per attempt and 27th in yards after contact per attempt (per Fantasy Points Data). Despite his smaller frame, Sean McVay had no issues leaning on Williams as his bellcow. In Weeks 2-17, he averaged 22.3 touches and 117.8 total yards playing at least 72% of the snaps in ten of 11 games played. The only knock on Williams' usage last season was his pass-game role. Despite entering the NFL as a ballyhooed passing down back, Williams only ranked 18th in target share and 58th in yards per route run (among 60 qualifying backs). Williams will need to reprise his every-down role in 2024 or see a bump in passing game usage to retain his high-end RB1 status, which is possible. Even with the addition of Blake Corum to the roster, this should remain Williams' backfield.

Kyren Williams (foot) won’t participate in OTAs

Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay said RB Kyren Williams will not be available for voluntary OTAs due to a “foot issue.”

Fantasy Impact

McVay said that Williams should be back for training camp. In the meantime, it can be expected that rookie RB Blake Corum will get extra opportunities. McVay praised Corum for his play style similarities to Williams, and he will be able to fill in during the veteran’s temporary absence. Williams’ status should be monitored come training camp.
