It’s highly unlikely another running back sleeper to have a similar day to Damien Williams, but there are a few decent options at the position.
Kansas City Chiefs running back Damien Williams started against the Los Angeles Chargers on Thursday Night Football, scoring a pair of rushing touchdowns and played an active role in the running and passing games. Williams was a must-start following Spencer Ware’s injury, and he managed to outscore Patrick Mahomes by 12 points in Week 15.
Fantasy football owners can’t expect any other running back sleepers this week to have a similar impact on their playoff success, but there are some intriguing options on the waiver wire. Of course, Chargers running back Justin Jackson, who started with Austin Ekeler injured, scored a hefty 17 points of his own on TNF, racking up 85 yards from scrimmage with a touchdown.
In Week 14, Williams had a strong game, Derrick Henry scored a whopping 47 points, Brandin Bolden scored a pair of touchdowns, Elijah McGuire carried the load for the New York Jets offense with 17 points, Jordan Howard ran for 100 yards, and even Kenneth Dixon emerged with a strong fantasy performance.
There are options out there for owners, so here are 10 running backs who could be good sleeper picks in Week 15.
