Chiefs to Pick Up Option on Top Running Back Damien Williams

The Super Bowl Champion Chiefs have decided to keep one of their biggest playmakers on offense for 2020.

NFL.com reports the team is going to pick up the option for running back Damien Williams.

The option makes Williams a very rich young player, as he will make $2.3 million in 2020.

Williams has been the best back on the roster the last two seasons. In 11 regular-season games, he has put up 498 yards on 111 attempts (4.5 YPA) with five rushing TDs and added 30 catches for 213 receiving yards and two more scores.

He came up big when the team needed it most, as he rushed for 104 yards in the Super Bowl win in early February against the San Francisco 49ers.

He also had four catches in the win for 29 yards and a touchdown.

Williams has worked his way into being the best back on the roster, and should be the starter on opening day 2020 for the champs.
