Dolphins | Damien Williams not signing tender

Wed, 03 May 2017 10:25:42 -0700

Miami Dolphins restricted free-agent RB Damien Williams is refusing to sign his $1.8 million tender and has not participated in the team's offseason conditioning program.

Fantasy Tip: With the restricted free-agent deadline in the rear view mirror, Williams' only real choices are to accept the tender or sit out. The Dolphins are also looking for more from second-year back Kenyan Drake, who the team hopes can make some of the big plays in the passing game Williams did last year. It is probably in his best interest to report soon and try to hold off Drake, or he will risk whatever shot he had of serving as Jay Ajayi's backup in 2017.

Dolphins | Damien Williams tendered

Thu, 09 Mar 2017 12:27:33 -0800

Miami Dolphins impending free-agent RB Damien Williams was assigned a one-year tender worth $1.797 million Thursday, March 9.

Fantasy Tip: Williams showed flashes of talent in limited work last year and has a potential role in the passing game. He is, however, no better than a late-round flier in deep fantasy setups.

Dolphins | Damien Williams involved in passing game

Sat, 24 Dec 2016 14:42:19 -0800

Miami Dolphins RB Damien Williams caught two passes for 51 yards against the Buffalo Bills in Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: Williams usually receives limited touches during games and should be avoided in all fantasy leagues despite his Week 16 performance.

Dolphins | Seven touches for Damien Williams

Sun, 06 Nov 2016 18:52:22 -0800

Miami Dolphins RB Damien Williams rushed five times for 29 yards in the Week 9 game against the New York Jets and he added two grabs for 20 yards on three targets.

Fantasy Tip: Williams is working as the primary backup to Jay Ajayi, but as long as the starter is running hot Williams is only worth a fantasy roster spot in the deepest of leagues.

Dolphins | Damien Williams to start at RB Thursday

Thu, 29 Sep 2016 16:36:37 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Damien Williams will start in the team's Week 4 game Thursday, Sept. 29, against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Fantasy Tip: This is pretty surprising, with Jay Ajayi and Kenyan Drake taking a backseat to the undrafted three-year veteran. No matter who the official starter in the backfield is, though, he's not worth deploying in just about all fantasy leagues, as the Miami running game is one to avoid right now in fantasy while Arian Foster is sidelined.

Dolphins | Damien Williams makes most of touches

Sun, 25 Sep 2016 19:00:58 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Damien Williams ran once for 15 yards and he had three receptions for 10 yards and a touchdown in the Week 3 game against the Cleveland Browns.

Fantasy Tip: Williams didn't see as many opportunities as Jay Ajayi or Kenyan Drake, but he showed well in his touches and might have bought himself more plays in the future. Right now, though, he is only worth monitoring and not adding to a fantasy roster just yet.

Dolphins | Kenyan Drake may go on short-term IR

Sun, 21 Aug 2016 08:40:11 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake (hamstring) may be a candidate for the short-term Injured Reserve list if the team wants to keep RBs Isaiah Pead and Damien Williams on the 53-man roster. Drake has missed most of training camp because of a hamstring injury.

Fantasy Tip: Drake was expected to have a decent role on offense when he was drafted but the addition of Arian Foster and his injury likely have affected the team's plans for him. He could still be a late-round option in deeper point-per-reception leagues if he is healthy but probably can be avoided in most leagues.

Dolphins | Damien Williams nearing return

Mon, 01 Aug 2016 20:36:09 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Damien Williams (undisclosed) is expected to come off the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list Tuesday, Aug. 2, according to head coach Adam Gase.

Fantasy Tip: Williams is battling for the No. 3 or 4 job on the depth chart. With Jay Ajayi and Arian Foster to suck up a lion's share of the carries, and rookie Kenyan Drake in the mix, Williams isn't a great fantasy option even if he makes the final roster.

Dolphins | Damien Williams out of shape

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 15:09:14 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Damien Williams (undisclosed) reported to training camp out of shape and is not ready to practice. Head coach Adam Gase is upset with Williams because he was out of shape during offseason workouts as well.

Fantasy Tip: Williams probably will be the No. 4 running back this season but may receive a chance to win the No. 3 job if he performs well during the preseason. He likely will receive limited playing time no matter where he is on the depth chart and will not be a strong option.

Dolphins | Damien Williams is hardest hit

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 19:00:48 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Damien Williams was the hardest hit by the addition of RB Arian Foster, as Williams slips from No. 2 to likely No. 3 on the depth chart with the potential to not even make the team unless they keep four backs. That's because RB Kenyan Drake figures to be No. 3 on the depth chart even if Williams is kept.

Fantasy Tip: The team invested a high pick on Drake, and he isn't going anywhere. Williams will be behind Jay Ajayi and Arian Foster, and could potentially be headed to another organization at this point. His fantasy outlook is very murky at this point.

Dolphins | Damien Williams hasn't had chance

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 23:27:09 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Damien Williams (undisclosed) has been sidelined during minicamp due to an undisclosed injury. Williams appears to be behind RB Kenyan Drake in the race for the backup job behind RB Jay Ajayi. Offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen said he has been unable to judge Williams due to his injury.

Fantasy Tip: Williams appears to be slotted as the No. 3 running back right now, although that is still subject to change with training camp and the preseason ahead. For now, he isn't worth drafting, but stay tuned as a lot could change once he gets healthy.

Dolphins | Coaches like Damien Williams

Tue, 24 May 2016 21:12:21 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Damien Williams appears to be the frontrunner for the No. 3 running back job in 2016 because the coaching staff likes him. Williams is expected to be pushed by RB Daniel Thomas for the job during training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Williams rushed for only 59 yards in 2015 but did catch 21 passes for 142 yards out of the backfield. Williams likely will have a similar role in 2016 if he makes the team. Williams may have some value in point-per-reception leagues but probably can be avoided in most leagues.

Dolphins | Lamar Miller can't explain benching

Mon, 21 Dec 2015 10:59:25 -0800

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller said he does not know why he received only two carries in the second half of the team's Week 15 game against the San Diego Chargers. Miller said he is frustrated with his role because he believes he can help the team win. Interim head coach Dan Campbell said the team believed they would receive more mileage from RBs Jay Ajayi and Damien Williams in the second half.

Fantasy Tip: Miller should still receive a majority of the work in the final two games of the season since he leads the team's running backs in running and receiving yards. Owners will need to monitor the situation since Miller's value will drop if he loses touches to the other running backs. Owners could consider using Miller in their lineups but may want to look for more productive options.

Dolphins | Damien Williams leaves early

Sun, 15 Nov 2015 10:40:30 -0800

Miami Dolphins RB Damien Williams (ankle) is questionable to return against the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday, Nov. 15, with a right ankle injury.

Fantasy Tip: Lamar Miller and Jay Ajayi should be able to handle the backfield load for the Dolphins with Williams out. Williams' fantasy value is minimal with Ajayi back.

Dolphins | Damien Williams injures hand

Thu, 29 Oct 2015 19:12:00 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Damien Williams (hand) suffered a hand injury against the New England Patriots in Week 8 and is questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: Williams ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has received just 11 carries all season, and unless something happens to Lamar Miller and Jonas Gray, Williams isn't going to see enough touches to have value FantasyScore.

Dolphins | Damien Williams has five touches

Sun, 20 Sep 2015 20:17:23 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Damien Williams carried twice for five yards in the Week 2 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars and he added three receptions for 15 yards and a touchdown.

Fantasy Tip: Williams ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is a player to watch heading into Week 3, as he took over for the injured Lamar Miller (ankle). If Miller misses time, Williams could be a nice sleeper pick in FantasyScore.

Dolphins | Damien Williams scores twice

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 06:26:59 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Damien Williams rushed for 14 yards and one touchdown on four carries in the second preseason game Saturday, Aug. 22. Williams also caught one pass for 11 yards and one touchdown during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Williams should have a role on offense this season and could be used in short-yardage situations. Owners should watch to see what he does in the final two preseason games. He could be a late-round option in deeper leagues as a possible Lamar Miller handcuff.

Dolphins | Damien Williams aligned at No. 2

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 07:24:36 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Damien Williams is listed as the second-string running back on the team's first depth chart. RB LaMichael James is third, and RB Jay Ajayi is fourth on the chart.

Fantasy Tip: Before the NFL Draft, there was a report that the team wasn't sold on Williams. During camp, there has been talk about James pushing him. So it doesn't seem like he has a strong hold on the spot. Williams is worth consideration very late in drafts, but he's not guaranteed anything.

Dolphins | LaMichael James pushing for job

Wed, 05 Aug 2015 06:05:37 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB LaMichael James is working as the third-down back Wednesday, Aug. 5, and appears to be pushing RB Damien Williams for the role.

Fantasy Tip: James has dashing speed, but he'll need to carve out a steady role behind Lamar Miller to have enough fantasy value to be drafted.

Dolphins | Miami not sold on Damien Williams

Wed, 01 Apr 2015 07:59:00 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Damien Williams may not be ready to serve as the team's No. 2 running back in the eyes of the club. The Dolphins could draft a running back in the 2015 NFL Draft if they don't sign a running back soon.

Fantasy Tip: Lamar Miller averaged 13.5 carries per game last season, and while he played all 16 games, he was nicked up quite a bit. If Williams' role increases, he could chip in with close to 10 carries per game and be a handcuff or RB5 candidate.

Dolphins | Lamar Miller questionable

Fri, 21 Nov 2014 14:52:32 -0800

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (shoulder, knee) was limited in practice Friday, Nov. 21, and is listed as questionable for Week 12 against the Denver Broncos. Miller has been nursing a sore shoulder for the last three weeks, but he also recently suffered a knee injury in practice. RBs Damien Williams and Daniel Thomas will likely share the workload if Miller sits out. RB LaMichael James could also be activated for the first time this year.

Fantasy Tip: Miller ($6,100) was already a weak FantasyScore play coming into this difficult matchup against the Broncos. The questionable tag officially makes him a guy to avoid. Williams ($3,000) and Thomas ($3,200) aren't any more intriguing, despite their cheap prices. James ($3,000) is actually the most interesting play, since Denver has actually allowed frequent catches to running backs in the last four weeks. However, James is obviously extremely risky.

Dolphins | Lamar Miller to share workload?

Thu, 13 Nov 2014 13:48:49 -0800

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (shoulder) is expected to play in Week 11 against the Buffalo Bills Thursday, Nov. 13, but RBs Daniel Thomas and Damien Williams will be expected to share touches with him tonight. Miller has been nursing a shoulder injury for the last two weeks, and he played only 11 snaps in Week 10.

Fantasy Tip: Miller ($6,100) isn't a smart FantasyScore investment against a tough Buffalo Bills defense on a short week. Neither Thomas nor Williams should be expected to put up big fantasy numbers, either.

Dolphins | Lamar Miller's status uncertain

Thu, 06 Nov 2014 10:39:43 -0800

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (shoulder) has been very limited during practice this week and his status for Week 10 is uncertain. RB Daniel Thomas and Damien Williams could receive bigger roles if Miller is limited during the game or is not able to play.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to watch to see if Miller has a chance to play in Week 10. Miller costs $6,200 on FantasyScore but may be too costly if he is limited during the game. Thomas could be a cheap flex option at $3,700 if Miller is not able to play.
