How Are We Approaching the Kansas City Backfield?

Every Damien Williams owner shuddered this weekend hearing the news that LeSean McCoy would be reuniting with Andy Reid in Kansas City. It’s unclear how this situation will shake out, but the values of Williams, McCoy and Darwin Thompson have undoubtedly shifted. Our experts discuss how to draft these players, and how to respond to the news for those who have already drafted.

How are we approaching the Kansas City backfield?

JSURab: If I wanted a piece of this backfield in best ball drafts, I would stay away from Damian Williams in the third round and draft LeSean McCoy later. If I already have Williams on my team in season-long leagues, I would be trying to trade for McCoy to handcuff this backfield because Andy Reid’s running backs are very valuable.
