Dolphins | Damien Williams leads way in Week 11

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 17:36:32 -0800

Miami Dolphins RB Damien Williams carried 10 times for 78 yards in Week 11 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he added one reception for 24 yards on his only target.

Fantasy Tip: The rushing numbers are skewed a bit, as one of his runs was good for 69 yards and then he had nine yards on his other nine attempts. Still, it was much better than Kenyan Drake, who was held to four rushing yards on seven carries. The battle for the top RB spot in Miami continues, and Williams easily won this round.

Dolphins | Damien Williams starting in Week 11

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 09:42:04 -0800

Miami Dolphins RB Damien Williams will be the starting running back for Week 11's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Tip: Williams will get the starting nod this afternoon even though he has clearly been outplayed by Kenyan Drake recently. Both players have eight receptions over the last two weeks but Williams has 16 carries for 33 rushing yards while Drake has 16 carries for 151 rushing yards and one touchdown in that stretch. Drake should still receive enough touches today to be worthy of consideration as a RB2 or flex option in all fantasy formats, while Williams should be viewed as nothing more than a flex option in PPR leagues only.

Dolphins | Damien Williams to remain involved

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 18:57:26 -0800

Miami Dolphins RB Damien Williams will continue to split carries with RB Kenyan Drake, according to offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen.

Fantasy Tip: Williams has managed just 33 yards on 16 carries the last two games while Drake has rushed for 151 yards and a touchdown on the same number of carries. Although Williams will remain involved, Drake is the only Miami back worth starting right now.

Dolphins | Kenyan Drake stuck in committee

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 18:49:03 -0800

Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake is worthy of more carries, according to offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen, but Christensen said the formula with Drake and RB Damien Williams will not change.

Fantasy Tip: Although Drake has been the better runner by a wide margin, both he and Williams have received 16 carries each over the last two games. Splitting carries limits Drake's ceiling, but he has done more than enough with his touches to be considered a flex play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 11.

Dolphins | Miami's backfield will remain a committee

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 10:12:08 -0800

Miami Dolphins RBs Kenyan Drake and Damien Williams will continue to split touches, according to offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen.

Fantasy Tip: Drake has earned the lead role in Miami's backfield, but the Dolphins aren't giving it to him yet. Not only is Drake a bigger playmaker, Williams has only averaged 3.1 yards per carry in his career. The former is a solid RB2 play in a great matchup this week. The latter is more of a PPR flex.

Dolphins | Damien Williams continues struggles on MNF

Mon, 13 Nov 2017 22:06:21 -0800

Miami Dolphins RB Damien Williams could only manage 19 rushing yards on nine carries in the team's Week 10 loss Monday, Nov. 13, versus the Carolina Panthers. He also had two receptions for 20 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Williams may have received more carries if the game didn't get so out of hand in the second half, but regardless, he's clearly getting outplayed by teammate Kenyan Drake, who had 82 yards on just seven carries. Thus, it's hard to trust Williams right now in any format, as Drake will probably be receiving more work from here on out.

Dolphins | Damien Williams listed as starter

Mon, 13 Nov 2017 16:43:04 -0800

Miami Dolphins RB Damien Williams (illness) is listed as the starting running back against the Carolina Panthers in Week 10.

Fantasy Tip: Williams will share snaps with Kenyan Drake during the game and should be involved in the running and passing game. He can be considered a flex option in point-per-reception leagues but is not a must-start option.

Dolphins | Damien Williams listed as questionable

Sat, 11 Nov 2017 11:40:03 -0800

Miami Dolphins RB Damien Williams (illness) fully participated in practice Saturday, Nov. 11, but is listed as questionable for Week 10.

Fantasy Tip: Williams should have a good chance to play against the Carolina Panthers after returning to practice Saturday. He would share playing time with Kenyan Drake if he is active and would be involved in the running and passing game. He has recorded 49 rushing yards and 97 receiving yards this season but probably should only be considered as a flex option.
