New York Giants should target these Chiefs free agents to build Mike Kafka’s offense
By Reese Nasser
Darrel Williams, Running Back
Chiefs running back Darrel Williams could be the perfect player to back up Giants running back Saquon Barkley.
During last season, when Chiefs RB1 Clyde Edwards-Helaire missed time due to injury, Williams was able to step up and take over as the lead back.
While Barkley has dealt with injuries in the past, having an option like Willams could help keep this offense afloat in case Barkley were to miss time.
Over the course of last season, Williams played in all 17 regular-season games. During that time he ran for 558 yards and six rushing touchdowns. He led the Chiefs in all rushing statistics and finished with the third-most offensive touchdowns. He also finished with 1010 yards from scrimmage, the third most on the team.
He was also effective in the passing game. He caught 47 passes on 57 targets. He recorded 452 receiving yards and caught two touchdowns.
The versatility that could come with having a backfield made up of both Barkley and Williams could be too good to pass up on. Both running backs play with a similar style and can make big plays in both the run and passing game. If utilized correctly, the Giants could create a top running back duo in the NFL.
