It has been an up-and-down season for veteran running back LeSean McCoy now that he's a member of the Kansas City Chiefs. His value seems to have reached a new low in Week 10 though, being ruled out against the Tennessee Titans, being labeled a healthy scratch on Sunday morning.

McCoy had a costly Week 8 fumble in the third quarter against the Packers, which has put him in Reid's doghouse, resulting in him touching the ball just four times last week and now being inactive for Week 10.

But when one door closes, another opens. This has been the case for Damien Williams, who has re-claimed his spot as the leader of the Chiefs backfield.

Since that fumble, Williams has seen 76 percent of the backfield snaps and 79 percent of the touches. This has led to 21 touches for 158 yards and two touchdowns in the last five quarters.

Williams played 73 percent of the snaps last week, which was the sixth time he has played more than 60 percent on the year. In those six games, he has averaged 25.6 PPR fantasy points per game.

As the starter for Kansas City, Williams comes in at RB22 in our Week 10 PPR rankings.
