Allen Robinson II
Jakeem Grant Sr.
Chicago Bears running back Damien Williams (calf) put in a limited practice to begin the week on Wednesday. Williams is trying to return for the first time since Week 8, and it's notable only because lead-back David Montgomery missed practice on Wednesday with a trio of injuries. It's not a lock that Williams will be back in Week 14 against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday night, but if he is and Montgomery doesn't play, he'd operate as the No. 2 back behind rookie Khalil Herbert. Even in that scenario, though, the 29-year-old wouldn't have much standalone fantasy value. He has 37 carries on the year for 139 yards and two touchdowns in seven games, adding 11 catches for 64 yards through the air.
Chicago Bears wide receiver Marquise Goodwin (foot, ribs) and running back Damien Williams (calf) missed practice all week and have been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals. Goodwin will miss his second straight game, while Williams hasn't played since Week 8. Goodwin is much too risky as a boom/bust WR4/flex in deeper leagues in Chicago's low-volume passing attack when he's healthy. Damiere Byrd should operate as the No. 2 receiver on Sunday with Allen Robinson II (hamstring) missing his third straight game. Darnell Mooney is the only receiver fantasy managers should trust in fantasy. Whenever Williams returns, he'll merely be the No. 3 RB behind David Montgomery and rookie Khalil Herbert.
Chicago Bears running back Damien Williams (calf) missed his second straight practice of the week on Thursday. Williams hasn't been active for the last three games and looks headed for his fourth straight in Week 13 against the Arizona Cardinals unless he can return to the practice field on Friday. Even if the 29-year-old is able to practice on Friday and is active this Sunday, he'll be the team's third-string RB behind David Montgomery and rookie Khalil Herbert. Williams had an opportunity to cement himself as the lead back earlier in the year when Montgomery landed on Injured Reserve, but he failed to do so and was surpassed by Herbert. Williams would likely only play a handful of snaps, if that, if he's active in Week 13.
Chicago Bears running back Damien Williams (calf) missed another practice to kick off the week on Wednesday. Williams also missed practice all of last week before missing his third straight game in the Thanksgiving win over the Detroit Lions. The 29-year-old has been sidelined since Week 8 and was surpassed on the RB depth chart by rookie Khalil Herbert when David Montgomery went on Injured Reserve earlier this season. Montgomery has since taken control of lead-back duties, leaving scraps for Herbert. Whenever Williams returns, he'll have a non-existent role as the No. 3 back in this lackluster offense. He should remain on the waiver wire in most leagues.
Chicago Bears running back Damien Williams (calf) missed practice all week and has been ruled out for the Thanksgiving game against the Detroit Lions on Thursday. Williams hasn't played since Week 8 and is well off the fantasy radar as the No. 3 back, when healthy, behind David Montgomery and rookie Khalil Herbert. In his two starts this year with Montgomery sidelined, Williams has 18 carries for 61 yards and one touchdown on the ground while catching two of three targets for 20 yards. In seven games total in 2021, he has 37 carries for 139 yards (3.8 yards per carry) and two scores and has added 11 receptions for 64 yards on 14 targets. Continue to leave Williams to the waiver wire.
Chicago Bears rookie quarterback Justin Fields (ribs) and running back Damien Williams (calf) both missed Tuesday's walkthrough practice after missing Monday's practice. Veteran Andy Dalton has already been named the starter for Thursday's Thanksgiving game against the Detroit Lions, so Fields will be given extra time to heal after suffering bruised ribs in the Week 11 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Fields remains a stash in two-QB and dynasty/keeper leagues for his long-term upside, while Dalton could be a successful QB2 streamer against the winless Lions. Williams has been out since Week 8 and doesn't seem close to returning. He can be ignored in most fantasy leagues, as he'll be third behind David Montgomery and rookie Khalil Herbert when he does return.
Chicago Bears running back Damien Williams (calf) was listed as a non-participant on Monday's estimated practice report. Williams missed his second straight game in the Week 11 loss to the Baltimore Ravens and is probably fighting an uphill battle to be active for the Thanksgiving game this Thursday against the Detroit Lions. Even if Williams were to return in Week 12, he'd be third on the RB totem pole behind lead-back David Montgomery and rookie Khalil Herbert, making him useless in fantasy. In Sunday's loss to the Ravens, Herbert saw just one carry behind Montgomery, who carried the ball 14 times for 58 yards and caught his lone target for nine yards. Williams should be left to the waiver wire in most leagues.
Chicago Bears wide receiver Allen Robinson II (hamstring) and running back Damien Williams (knee) are inactive for Sunday's meeting with the Baltimore Ravens. Robinson was doubtful heading into Sunday, so this shouldn't come as a surprise. Darnell Mooney will be the team's lead wideout in Week 11 and is worthy of flex consideration in most formats. As for Williams, his role has vanished anyway, so there's not much of a fantasy impact here, especially with David Montgomery back at the helm of this backfield. Williams can be dropped in all redraft leagues.
Chicago Bears running back Damien Williams (calf) is unlikely to suit up for Sunday's outing against the Ravens. The 29-year-old hasn't played since Week 8 and appeared on track to make it back against Baltimore. However, that now doesn't seem to be the case as he was downgraded officially to doubtful. Nonetheless, Williams' updated designation shouldn't have much of an impact throughout the fantasy community, mainly since he was nestled behind David Montgomery and Khalil Herbert on the depth chart.
Chicago Bears wide receiver Darnell Mooney (foot) and running back Damien Williams (knee) will both play in Week 11 against the Baltimore Ravens after being taken off the final injury report. Mooney has been Chicago's most productive wideout in this low-volume passing attack in 2021, and he should see even more looks on Sunday with Allen Robinson II (hamstring) doubtful to play. Mooney will be an upside WR3/flex. Williams hasn't played since Week 8 and will return as the team's No. 3 back behind David Montgomery and rookie Khalil Herbert. Chicago's backfield is completely healthy for this tilt with Baltimore, but Williams has zero fantasy appeal with both Montgomery and Herbert ahead of him.
Chicago Bears running back Damien Williams (knee) put in a full practice on Thursday after being limited to start the week on Wednesday. Williams looks on track to return to action following the bye after he sat out the last game in Week 9. The problem is that his fantasy value dried up long ago once rookie Khalil Herbert surpassed him on the running back depth chart. David Montgomery is also back healthy and in the lead-back role after he returned in Week 9, so Williams is now the No. 3 RB for Chicago. There's a question as to whether the 29-year-old will even be active on Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens if he's healthy enough to return. He can be left to the waiver wire in standard-sized leagues.
Chicago Bears wide receiver Darnell Mooney (foot) and running back Damien Williams (knee) were both limited in practice on Wednesday. It's not great to see Mooney still dealing with an injury coming out of the team's bye, but unless he has a setback later this week, he should be good to play on Sunday against a Baltimore Ravens secondary that has allowed a ton of big plays this year. With Allen Robinson II struggling to connect with rookie quarterback Justin Fields, Mooney has essentially become the best Bears pass-catcher. But Mooney has only two touchdowns and will be a WR4/flex in Week 11 in this low-volume passing attack. Williams has a chance to return after missing the Week 9 game, but if he does, he'll be third on the totem pole behind David Montgomery and rookie Khalil Herbert.
Chicago Bears running back Damien Williams (knee) has been ruled out for Monday's matchup vs. Pittsburgh. The loss of Williams coincides with the likely return of David Montgomery (knee), while Khalil Herbert stands to serve as RB2 against a stout Steelers defense. Williams enjoyed a two-week stretch in the sun while Montgomery was down, but after logging just four snaps last week -- and accruing -3 rushing yards on two carries -- he can remain firmly on the waiver wire in all season-long formats. His next opportunity to take the field comes after Chicago's bye week, when they face the Ravens in Week 11.
Chicago Bears running back Damien Williams (knee) missed his second straight practice of the week on Friday. If Williams is unable to get on the practice field on Saturday, he's unlikely to play on Monday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers after he was injured in the Week 8 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. Initially a hot waiver-wire pickup when David Montgomery (knee) went on Injured Reserve, Williams never panned out for fantasy managers and rookie Khalil Herbert took over lead-back duties. With Montgomery on track to return from IR and play a limited role against Pittsburgh, Williams becomes droppable in the majority of single-year formats, even if he's active in Week 9.
Chicago Bears running back Damien Williams (knee) did not take part in practice on Thursday. Williams had already been passed up on the team's RB depth chart by rookie Khalil Herbert before he suffered a knee injury in the Week 8 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. Now there's a chance that he won't even play in Week 9 on Monday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers. On top of it, David Montgomery (knee) could be activated from Injured Reserve in order to play a limited role on Monday. In three games with Montgomery sidelined, Williams only had 21 carries for 66 yards and a touchdown while adding three receptions for 23 yards. If you have other needs on your roster, now would be a good time to cut Williams. The Bears go on their bye in Week 10.
Chicago Bears running back Damien Williams will go up against a Steelers defense that is allowing the sixth fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs this season. The veteran became the team's lead running back a month ago when starter David Montgomery went down but it was short-lived after being placed on the COVID list. By the time he returned, rookie Khalil Herbert flashed enough promise to take over RB1 duties. Montgomery is now back at practice and Herbert remains the starter. Williams lacks fantasy value and is destined to remain the backup in the near future.
Chicago Bears running back Damien Williams (knee) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the 49ers. Williams opened the year as the backup for David Montgomery and now is serving as the backup for rookie Khalil Herbert. Williams had two carries for a loss of three yards before exiting on Sunday. If he's unable to return, Herbert will see his already big role in this offense grow just a little bit more.
Chicago Bears running back Damien Williams carried the ball three times for only five yards and caught one pass for three yards in the Bears Week 7 loss to the Buccaneers. It was an awful day at the office for the Bears offense and Williams returned to action after missing last week due to a positive COVID test. The veteran hadn't practiced in two weeks and was able to play some snaps in this game but his absence has allowed rookie Khalil Herbert to take control of the RB1 duties in the Bears offense. Williams should see more touches next week but has been passed on the depth chart by Herbert moving forward.
The Chicago Bears activated running back Damien Williams from the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Saturday. In other Bears news, defensive lineman Akiem Hicks (groin) has been downgraded to out for Week 7 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Williams missed the Week 6 loss to the Green Bay Packers, but he will presumably return to lead-back duties this Sunday against a strong Tampa run defense. They've allowed just 82 rushing yards and no rushing touchdowns on 22 carries to RBs in the last three weeks. Williams had 16 carries (two fewer than rookie Khalil Herbert) for 64 yards and a touchdown in Week 5. Herbert himself has 37 totes for 172 yards and a touchdown while also catching two passes for 15 yards the last two weeks. Even with Williams returning, the rookie could have flex appeal in deeper leagues and DFS.
Chicago Bears running back Damien Williams, who is on the Reserve/COVID-19 list, missed practice again on Thursday and can't be cleared until Saturday, at the earliest. Williams is not vaccinated and there is a mandatory 10-day waiting period. The 29-year-old tested positive for the virus and wasn't able to play in the Week 6 loss to the Green Bay Packers, and now he's in danger of missing his second straight game. Rookie Khalil Herbert took control of the backfield with a season-high 19 carries for 97 yards and his first career touchdown while also catching two passes for 15 additional yards. Herbert should have a role regardless of whether Williams is active, but he'll be on the RB2/3 borderline if Williams doesn't get clearance to face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Chicago Bears running back Damien Williams will remain on the COVID-19 list, according to head coach Matt Nagy. In his absence, rookie running back Khalil Herbert was very impressive as he totaled 112 yards from scrimmage along with a touchdown. If Williams is unable to return in Week 7, Herbert would once again be in the RB3 mix. However, considering we are still six days away from the Bears' next game, Williams could be cleared in time. Upon his return to the lineup, Williams slots in ahead of Herbert on the depth chart and would be best valued as a lower-end RB2 or high-end RB3 option for fantasy managers.
Chicago Bears running back Damien Williams, who was placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Thursday, tested positive for the virus, according to a source. If Williams is vaccinated, he'll need to be asymptomatic and return two negative tests within 24 hours in order to be cleared to play in Week 6 against the Green Bay Packers. In other words, it's extremely likely that Williams won't be active this Sunday. That means that rookie Khalil Herbert, who out-carried Williams last week, should be in line for a massive workload this weekend with Ryan Nall backing him up. Herbert should've already been added off the waiver wire in most leagues by fantasy managers in need of RB help in Week 6. The rookie will be on the RB2/3 borderline if Williams is indeed inactive.
The Chicago Bears placed running back Damien Williams on the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Thursday. The Bears are already without David Montgomery (knee), who is on Injured Reserve, so rookie Khalil Herbert is now in position to start in a dream matchup against the Green Bay Packers this Sunday. It's unclear if Williams tested positive for the virus, but either way he's now unlikely to be available for Week 6. Ryan Nall is the only other running back on the Bears active roster. Even with Williams taking over for Montgomery last weekend, Herbert still out-carried Williams 18 to 16 and had 75 rushing yards. If Williams doesn't gain clearance in time for Sunday, Herbert should be started in most fantasy leagues as Chicago's primary back. He's rostered in just 34% of Yahoo leagues, so go and pick him up immediately.
Chicago Bears running back Damien Williams (foot, knee) and wide receiver Darnell Mooney (groin) were both limited in practice on Wednesday. Williams was the popular waiver-wire pickup last week after David Montgomery (knee) went down with a multi-week knee injury, and he responded by carrying the ball 16 times for 64 yards and a touchdown on the ground. Rookie Khalil Herbert actually had two more carries for 75 yards in the win over the Las Vegas Raiders. Williams is expected to be the go-to back for the Bears with Montgomery out, but Herbert could once again have a big role in Week 6 against the Green Bay Packers if Williams is limited or out. Williams will be an RB2 if he plays, but Herbert could have standalone RB3/flex appeal in deeper leagues as well. Mooney has been a steady No. 2 target for the Bears, but he has yet to find the end zone. There will be WR4/flex appeal against the Packers this week, especially if Allen Robinson II (ankle) is limited.
Chicago Bears running back Damien Williams will remain the team's RB1 heading into the team's matchup against the Packers in Week 6. Williams does share the workload with rookie teammate Khalil Herbert but the veteran posted 84 total yards and a touchdown last week. Williams should continue the lead the charge in a run-heavy offensive unit against a Packers defense that is allowing the 17th fewest fantasy points to opposing runners. The matchup isn't great but Williams will be worth fantasy-FLEX consideration purely based on volume heading into Week 6.

Are NFL Trade Rumor Covered in the Player News?

“The Atlanta Falcons are not expected to trade quarterback Matt Ryan this offseason, according to sources. “The Falcons have not had any trade conversations about Ryan or their star wide receiver Julio Jones. And every expectation is both players are going to be on the roster in 2021,” NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero said. New head coach Arthur Smith plans to run a similar offense to the one Kyle Shanahan used when Ryan won MVP in 2016. Atlanta would be on the hook for more than $44 million in dead money in 2021 if they traded Ryan before June 1. Atlanta may decide to take Ryan’s heir-apparent at No. 4 overall in the draft, but the 35-year-old signal-caller is expected to stay put for at least another season. Ryan and Jones got it going to end the regular season and could be in line for bounce-back campaigns under Smith in 2021. Consider Ryan a midrange QB1 heading into next season.”
