Ravens RB Ty'Son Williams is a healthy scratch for today's game vs. the Chargers. Baltimore will roll with RBs Latavius Murray, Devonta Freeman and Le'Veon Bell. Murray is the best fantasy bet in this plus matchup.

Ravens RB Ty'Son Williams is a healthy scratch for today's game vs. the Broncos. Baltimore is going with RBs Latavius Murray, Le'Veon Bell and Devonta Freeman. Murray is expected to lead the way and is a RB3 or flex option.

Latavius Murray will be the Ravens' "lead back" against the Broncos today, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. Murray led the backfield with 7 carries last week vs. Ty'Son Williams' 5 and Devonta Freeman's 3. RB Le'Veon Bell is also expected to be active today. This is a messy backfield that is best off avoided in Week 4 fantasy lineups.

The Ravens are planning to use RBs Ty'Son Williams, Latavius Murray and Devonta Freeman against the Chiefs tonight, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "Do not be surprised if the Ravens roll with the hot hand," Rapoport adds. Williams is most likely to get that "hot hand" and remains the best fantasy bet here. But consider him a risk/reward RB3 or flex. Murray is next in our Week 2 Rankings but sits outside RB3 territory across formats.

The Ravens promoted RB Devonta Freeman to the active roster. He gets the call over RB Le'Veon Bell, at least for this week. We're projecting the pecking order in the backfield vs. Kansas City to be Ty'Son Williams, Latavius Murray and then Freeman -- but we'll continue to keep a close eye on this backfield.

The Ravens won't be activating RB Le'Veon Bell or Devonta Freeman from the practice squad ahead of tonight's game against the Raiders. They instead elevated CB Anthony Levine Sr. and DL Justin Ellis to help cover injuries at those positions. That leaves Ty'Son Williams as the expected lead back vs. Vegas, with Latavius Murray and Trenton Cannon behind him.

Ravens HC John Harbaugh said Friday that RBs Latavius Murray and Devonta Freeman are "more game ready" than Le'Veon Bell right now. Bell is "still getting his legs under him," Harbaugh added. It makes sense considering Murray and Freeman spent August in training camps. So those 2 are more likely to be active for Monday night's game vs. the Raiders. But RB Ty'Son Williams remains the heavy favorite to serve as lead back in that one.

Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports that the Ravens are "working on finalizing a deal" with former Saints RB Latavius Murray. "Should get done," Zrebiec adds. There's going to be some sorting to do on this new Baltimore RB depth chart. Murray would join a team that has added Le'Veon Bell and Devonta Freeman to the practice squad in recent days. There's not enough room for all of them on the active roster. We don't see why Murray would sign with Baltimore if he expected to sit behind Bell or Freeman on the depth chart. And Murray performed well last year, ranking 15th in Football Outsiders' rushing DVOA among 47 qualifying RBs. Murray is definitely worth adding where available. Of course, we'll also see what all this means for Ty'Son Williams.

An MRI confirmed a torn ACL for Ravens RB Gus Edwards, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. So Edwards, like teammates J.K. Dobbins and Justice Hill, will miss the entire 2021 season. That leaves Baltimore with RBs Ty'Son Williams and Trenton Cannon on the active roster and RBs Le'Veon Bell and Devonta Freeman on the practice squad. Williams is a good bet to lead the way in Monday night's opener vs. the Raiders. We'll see where the backfield goes beyond that.

The Ravens have signed RB Devonta Freeman to their practice squad. "The idea is that Freeman will be promoted to Ravens’ active roster," ESPN's Adam Schefter tweeted. It's unclear when Freeman will be ready to join the active roster. He joins Le'Veon Bell on Baltimore's practice squad, with Ty'Son Williams and Trenton Cannon on the active roster. There's a lot of settling that needs to happen in this backfield. In the short term, Williams is the best fantasy bet.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Ravens RB Justice Hill suffered an Achilles' tendon tear in practice "recently" and will miss the season. Hill didn't appear headed for a big role, but he was 1 of just 3 RBs remaining on the Baltimore roster. The Ravens hosted RBs Le'Veon Bell, Devonta Freeman and Elijah Holyfield on Monday, according to SI's Albert Breer. We expect the team to add someone. Whoever that winds up being figures to slot behind Gus Edwards and Ty'Son Williams on the depth chart -- at least initially.

The Saints released RB Devonta Freeman. The 29-year-old mustered just 3.7 yards per carry this preseason and is just about out of gas. We'll see what New Orleans does with RB Latavius Murray, who's been mentioned as a cut candidate.

Katherine Terrell of The Athletic writes that it “feels like” Saints RB Latavius Murray will avoid getting cut. Terrell adds, however, that Murray’s status on the team “doesn’t seem as clear cut as it might have weeks ago.” Murray, 31, fumbled in the preseason opener and carries a cap hit of nearly $4.2 million. Still, with depth options like Devonta Freeman and Tony Jones, we’d be surprised if the Saints dumped Murray. It's at least a storyline to watch over the coming weeks.

The Saints reached a 1-year deal with RB Devonta Freeman on Saturday, following a tryout for the veteran. Freeman obviously won't challenge the roles of Alvin Kamara or Latavius Murray, but figures to compete with Tony Jones Jr., Dwayne Washington and rookie Stevie Scott for a spot behind them. Freeman averaged just 3.2 yards per rush over 54 carries with the Giants last year and made a stop on Buffalo's practice squad before getting to New Orleans. He turned 29 in March.

The Bills have signed RB Devonta Freeman to their practice squad, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. It's possible that he's elevated and active for Saturday night's game against the Ravens after Buffalo lost RB Zack Moss, but Freeman wouldn't be a fantasy option.

The Giants placed RB Devonta Freeman on IR with a hamstring injury suffered on Thursday. He'll miss at least the next 3 games and can be dropped in most fantasy leagues. With Freeman out the last 2 games, RB Wayne Gallman has totaled 26 carries and 3 targets to Alfred Morris' 17 carries and 1 target and Dion Lewis' 3 carries and 5 targets.
