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 activated RB Le'Veon Bell from the practice squad. He's eligible to play vs. the Broncos tomorrow. We'll see if Baltimore has Bell, Ty'Son Williams, Latavius Murray and Devonta Freeman active for that one. Williams remains the best fantasy bet -- but Bell's presence makes his profile a bit shakier.

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.

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.

Ravens RB Gus Edwards left practice Thursday after suffering a "potentially serious" knee injury, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the team fears he tore an ACL. Baltimore actually cut the practice short after Edwards and CB Marcus Peters injured knees on consecutive plays. Both are heading in for testing, and we'll certainly keep watch for updates. If the testing confirms that fear, Edwards would be the 3rd RB the Ravens have lost for the season, following J.K. Dobbins (ACL) and Justice Hill (Achilles'). That would leave Ty'Son Williams and Le'Veon Bell to potentially lead the backfield in Week 1 and beyond. Baltimore also recently signed RB Trenton Cannon, but he's more of a special-teamer. Grabbing Bell off waivers where possible suddenly seems like a solid plan.

The Ravens are signing RB Le'Veon Bell to the practice squad, according to multiple reports. Bell visited the team on the same day as Elijah Holyfield and Devonta Freeman. The fact that he's not immediately joining the roster tells you Bell won't jump ahead of Gus Edwards or Ty'Son Williams anytime soon. We'll see if this goes anywhere. For now, Bell is only worth a stash in deep fantasy football leagues. Bell managed just 8.4 touches per game over 9 regular-season contests with the Chiefs last year -- cracking 7 carries in a game just twice.

ESPN's Jamison Hensley confirms that Ty'Son Williams is now the Ravens' #2 RB. The former undrafted free agent has passed RB Justice Hill on the depth chart. While Hill has missed parts of August with an ankle injury, Williams has impressed on the practice field and with a 5.4 yards-per-carry average in preseason action. We'll see if Baltimore makes an addition to the backfield over the next couple of weeks, but Williams is worth considering as a late-round flier in fantasy drafts.
