News: 9 hours agoBroncos head coach Vic Fangio said he's confident in Williams' ability to handle a lead role out of the backfield Sunday in Kansas City while Melvin Gordon (hip) is listed as doubtful for the contest and not expected to play, George Stoia III of The Denver Gazette reports.

Spin: Williams and Gordon have had a near-even split of the backfield snaps and touches through the Broncos' first 11 games of the season, but Week 13 will likely mark the first time either of the two gets a look in a featured role. At least on a per-touch basis, Williams (4.9 yards per carry, 7.1 yards per reception) has provided reason for excitement, and the prospect of him handling his largest role of the season should make him an appealing lineup option in most weekly season-long leagues. He'll be taking aim at a Kansas City defense that has generally been friendly for running-back production, aside from allowing touchdowns. The Chiefs are permitting 4.38 yards per carry (22nd in NFL), 7.07 yards per target (28th) and an 84.5 percent catch rate (29th) to running backs this season.

ESPN Fantasy Projection: Williams was selected by Denver with the 35th pick of the 2021 draft. The North Carolina product's calling card is elite tackle breaking and elusiveness. Williams has the second-best YAC (4.1) and forced missed tackle rates (3.0) in this year's class over the past three seasons and was top-two in both categories in 2020. Williams has good size (5-foot-10, 212 pounds) and is an aggressive and explosive rusher with respectable receiving production (his 25 catches in 2020 were third-most in this class). Williams is one of the youngest backs in this class (21) but will immediately step into a consistent role next to starter Melvin Gordon. He may start slow, but Williams figures to progressively take on more work as the season progresses. He'll be worth of a mid-round pick in season-long leagues.
