The Chiefs released Kareem Hunt in Week 13, then lost Spencer Ware to injury in quick succession, paving way for the Damien Williams show.

Williams quicky found himself atop most of the position’s leaderboards after taking over as the lead back between Weeks 13 to 17:

  • Touches: 67 (T-22nd)
  • Rush attempts: 47 (25th)
  • Targets: 21 (T-13th)
  • Total yards: 255 (20th)
  • Total touchdowns: 6 (second)
  • PPR: 93.7 (fifth)

Even if Carlos Hyde and/or Darwin Thompson manage to seize a portion of snaps in the Chiefs’ backfield, it would be a surprise if either is able to unseat Williams as the offense’s lead pass-game back. Ian Hartitz
