Spencer Ware has been a full participant in Chiefs practice since Week 17 and should be fully healthy for the Chiefs' playoff tilt with the Indianapolis Colts this weekend. It's possible that Ware reassumes his lead-back status this weekend, but Damien Williams could be the better fantasy start in all DFS contests for the Divisional Round. 


Even if Ware ends up cutting into his carries, Williams still has tremendous value in the passing game. Williams saw 14 passes thrown his way in Kansas City's last three regular-season games, turning those targets into 119 yards receiving and a receiving touchdown.

Based on those receiving numbers alone, Williams is averaging 8.3 FanDuel points per game, which should make him a high-end flex play if he gets a few carries. 

It's no secret the Chiefs' defense is one of the worst the league has to offer. Considering the Colts own a top-five offense, there's a solid chance this game turns into a shootout. With more passing situations expected, Williams will most likely see a bulk of the backfield work leading to higher fantasy potential than his backfield-mate.
