Williams had two carries for 10 yards and caught both of his targets for 24 yards Sunday against the Bengals. Latavius Murray's injury paved the way for Williams to rejoin the active roster Sunday. The run game went out the window in the second half when the Bengals started to build a multiscore lead, so no Baltimore running back saw much work. Williams, along with Le'Veon Bell and Devonta Freeman, each saw more than 20 snaps, but none of them tallied more than five carries. Baltimore is on bye this week, which gives Murray added time to get healthy. That could complicate Williams' status for Week 9 if Murray is indeed active, though neither Bell nor Freeman are outplaying Williams by any significant measure.
Williams is active for Sunday's game against the Bengals, Jonas Shaffer of The Baltimore Sun reports. Williams returned to the inactive list for the Ravens' Week 6 win over the Chargers, but he'll be suiting up as the team's No. 3 back Sunday after Latavius Murray (ankle) was ruled out for the contest. Devonta Freeman is expected to replace Murray as the team's lead option out of the backfield, while Le'Veon Bell looks to be next in line for work. As a result, Williams likely won't be tasked with handling a meaningful role Week 7.
Williams (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Chargers. Williams was inactive for Week 4 before suiting up last week against the Colts and totaling six touches for 21 yards, and he's now inactive again for Week 6. Latavius Murray should lead Baltimore's backfield versus Los Angeles while Devonta Freeman and Le'Veon Bell operate as the secondary options.
Williams rushed four times for six yards and caught both his targets for 15 yards in Monday night's 31-25 overtime win against the Colts. After being inactive in Week 4, Williams was the second tailback to enter the game for Baltimore but didn't get his first touch until after both starter Latavius Murray and fellow backup Devonta Freeman has gotten theirs. Although the three split snaps over the course of the contest, when a big deficit required Baltimore to pass the ball more, Williams wasn't able to take advantage. Fortunately, neither Murray nor Freeman topped 35 scrimmage yards either, leaving the Ravens' backfield picture muddled. Given Williams' role reduction since the first couple games of the season, as well as the practice-squad presence of Le'Veon Bell, Williams' fantasy value is precarious ahead of a Week 6 matchup versus the Chargers.
Williams is active for Monday's game against the Colts. Williams hovered around a 50 percent snap share in the Ravens' offense in each of the first three games of the season, turning 27 carries into 164 yards and one touchdown to go with five catches (on seven targets) for 45 yards. Clearly the initial beneficiary of all the injuries in Baltimore's backfield, he was curiously a healthy scratch Week 4 while Latavius Murray was the lead runner, with Le'Veon Bell and Devonta Freeman getting the rest of the RB work. The team opted not to elevate Bell from the practice squad Monday, leaving Murray, Freeman and Williams as its available running backs. Considering he's been active for each of the Ravens' five contests this season, Murray again seems poised to be the No. 1 RB, but it'll be interesting to see if Williams can regain a foothold.
