Damien Williams, RB, Kansas City Chiefs
With Kareem Hunt gone and Spencer Ware getting a little banged up, Williams had a rushing touchdown and a receiving touchdown among 12 touches against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 14. Ware was able to return to the game, but the Chiefs have a short week heading into a Thursday night game against the Los Angeles Chargers.
The Chargers entered Week 14 in the bottom half of the league against running backs (ESPN PPR scoring). They’ve allowed a touchdown to the position in three of their last four games, they’re in the bottom part of the league in receptions allowed to running backs.
Williams emerged as an add-and-stash in deeper leagues after Hunt was let go. If Ware is on track to be limited against the Chargers, Williams then has automatic appeal as a flex option in PPR leagues and there may be room for him to produce in what should be a high-scoring game regardless of Ware’s status.
