Damien Williams - Outlook

FWIW Just saw this at CBS

by RotoWire Staff
(5 hrs ago) Coach Andy Reid said he's asking Williams to be the "full-time starter" for the upcoming season, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official website reports. "[Williams] has taken that challenge," Reid said. "He wants to do this thing, and he's earned the right to be that guy. And now it's a matter of production."
Reid and offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy both have made strong comments in support of Williams, shutting down any speculation about Carlos Hyde or Darwin Thompson pushing for a starting job. Including the playoffs, Williams averaged 12.8 carries, 4.7 catches, 100.4 scrimmage yards and 1.7 touchdowns on 43.3 snaps over his final six games last season. He ceded some playing time to Spencer Ware or Charcandrick West each week, but it was Williams who dominated high-value opportunities in the passing game and near the goal line. Reid's 20 seasons as a head coach have yielded just four instances of his team's lead back failing to reach 1,200 scrimmage yards -- and two of those involved season-ending injuries in Week 5.

    Damien is a top 10 back in a Patrick Mahomes offense. Damien on the New York Giants and tell me what he look like?

    I agree he wouldn’t look the same on just about every other team. The beauty is we don’t have to care about him on another team, just that he’s Andy’s #1 RB in his offense.

    Agreed that’s what you’re buying.. the starting KC RB.. not Damien Williams

    I see D Will as a top 10 rb this year. The NFL & Fantasy depends a lot on players opportunities, systems, teams. Williams is in a perfect spot to produce big numbers. Ex: Knowshon Moreno as a Top 8 Rb under P Manning.

    I read Andy's comments.... About as encouraging as u can get...

    He'll be a stud when healthy. Then the schedule of 16 games will set in. He's never had more than 50 carries in a season till last year. Its clearly a system position. One that will produce numbers but I would sell high the minute he has a 150+ yard 2TD game. Few of my eggs are with Darwin Thompson though, to close out the year.
