Pat Fitzmaurice
FantasyPros
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. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Williams had only 7 fantasy points last week against the Titans, but a big reason is they were behind the entire game. Williams is a flex option against a Giants team that is 20th against fantasy backs.
