Do I start Damian Williams tonight?

Longtime podcast listener, first-time forum poster (cus I’m desperate)

Situation (0.5 PPR):

RB: David Johnson (Q)
RB: Jaylen Samuels
Flex: TY Hilton (Q)
Bench: Damian Williams
Bench: Jordan Howard

Samuels’ won’t be startable if Conner is active. I’m considering playing Williams over Johnson and keeping Johnson as a reserve in case Conner starts or Hilton is out.

Worried about leaving Williams on my bench tonight because if Conner is active, I’ll be forced to play Howard.


That is tough. I would play David Johnson no matter what. Personally I don’t think Conner plays so I would keep Samuels in, and if I have to play Howard, whatever he gets 13-15 carries and goal line work. Have to trust your gut though.

I’m not excited about Williams. They signed Char West for a reason and they will involve the other Williams too. This will be a full committee at RB. Mahomes will have to throw a lot to win.
