Kansas City Chiefs running back Damien Williams has been given a massive workload over the past two weeks, which gives his fantasy outlook a great boost moving forward.

Williams has played over 70 percent of the snaps in the Kansas City backfield over the past two weeks, which he has translated to solid production. Over these two games he has run for 202 yards and a touchdown while adding seven catches and 35 yards through the air.

In Week 8 against the Green Bay Packers, LeSean McCoy had a costly third quarter fumble, which then led to Williams seeing an increased workload and thriving with it.

Williams has averaged over 24 PPR fantasy points per game in the seven career games in which he has played at least 60 percent of the Chiefs' snaps. If Andy Reid decides to continue feeding the hot hand, Williams could be a consistent fantasy producer for the rest of the season as the lead back in one of the league's most dangerous offenses.

Williams ranks as RB9 in PPR scoring over the past two weeks, pending the final game of Week 10 on Monday night. His fantasy outlook remains high as long as he keeps serving as a workhorse in KC, and he sits at RB8 in our Week 11 PPR fantasy football rankings.
