I am attempting to create a featured post widget (basically same as the genesis one but without all the extras). I am only needing to use a few ACF fields. Can I still use the widget for this? Example using ACF Widget Title CSS Widget title Select Category Amount of posts…. Use featured image/alignment Then would I still be able to show the post excerpt etc? Hope this makes sense. Thanks!

Within your template file for the widget, you can run WP_Query or whatever else you need to get data to display. So if you need want to show posts from a specific category, add a Relationship field, and run a WP_Query or get_posts, etc to pull posts from the DB based on that value that the user selects.
