Ravens' Ty'Son Williams: Not active Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Ravens' Ty'Son Williams: Gets six touches
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Ravens' Ty'Son Williams: Available Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Ravens' Ty'Son Williams: Should dress Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams is expected to be active for Monday's game against the Colts as the Ravens' third running back after Baltimore elected not to elevate Le'Veon Bell from the practice squad, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.

While the possibility exists that the Ravens may keep only two backs (Latavius Murray and Devonta Freeman) active for Week 5, the team's decision not to bring Bell aboard for another game suggests that Williams may have temporarily exited head coach John Harbaugh's doghouse. Though Williams averaged a healthy 6.1 yards per carry through the Ravens' first three games, his ball-security concerns and struggles as a pass blocker likely contributed to him being a healthy scratch Week 4 in Denver. With that in mind, Williams may not be in line to handle an extensive role behind Murray and Freeman even if he dresses Monday.

Ravens' Ty'Son Williams: Inactive for Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams is inactive for Sunday's game against the Broncos, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.

With Williams sitting this one out, the Ravens have decided to go with the veteran backfield trio of Latavius Murray (the expected Week 4 starter), Le'Veon Bell and Devonta Freeman versus Denver.

Ravens' Ty'Son Williams: Not expected to start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams could be headed for a smaller role Sunday against the Ravens with Mike Garofolo of NFL Network reporting that Latavius Murray is expected to serve as Baltimore's lead back.

Williams has been listed as a starter in each of the Ravens' previous three games, but the designation hasn't meant much from a fantasy perspective, as Baltimore has ran a full-fledged backfield committee in each of those contests. Though the second-year player out of South Carolina is averaging an excellent 6.1 yards per carry on 27 totes, he drew poor reviews from offensive coordinator Greg Roman coming out of last week's win over Detroit and looks on track to see a smaller role Sunday after handling snap shares between 47 and 51 percent in each of Baltimore's first three contests. Murray projects to see the largest workload of a backfield that also includes Williams, Le'Veon Bell and Devonta Freeman, but expect Baltimore to once again take a committee approach to the position, making it difficult to trust any of the four players in Week 4 fantasy lineups.

Ravens' Ty'Son Williams: Possible healthy scratch?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams could be a healthy inactive Sunday against the Broncos after the team called up Le'Veon Bell from the practice squad, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athleticreports.

It's highly unlikely the Ravens keep four running backs active Sunday, and while Zrebiec suggested Devonta Freeman seems like the first choice to sit, offensive coordinator Greg Roman didn't exactly give a ringing endorsement of Williams in post-game reports last week. The muddled depth chart is certainly a complicating issue for fantasy managers given Latavius Murray has continued to siphon off carries (seven for 28 last week), and it doesn't appear things will get any easier against a capable Broncos run defense.

Ravens' Ty'Son Williams: First dud of young career
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams rushed five times for 22 yards and failed to catch his only target in Sunday's 19-17 win over the Lions.

Latavius Murray (28 yards on seven carries, no targets) wasn't much better, as Baltimore's running backs simply failed to get going in this one. Despite this poor performance, Williams has been the most productive member of the Ravens backfield over Murray and Devonta Freeman, who had just eight yards on three carries in this one. Williams will look to get back on track in Denver in Week 4.

Ravens' Ty'Son Williams: Leads backfield in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams rushed 13 times for 77 yards and caught both of his targets for 16 yards in Sunday's 36-35 win over the Chiefs.

Williams continued to lead the backfield as expected following the acquisition of Devonta Freeman (two rushes for 29 yards), but he did have a touchdown vultured by Latavius Murray. Lamar Jackson stole the show on the ground (16 rushes for 107 yards and two rushing scores), leaving scraps for the rest of the Ravens' rushing attack. It was still a solid outing from Williams all things considered, and his line would have looked a whole lot better if he cashed in on one of those three rushing scores. The former undrafted rookie has a nice matchup on tap against a young, unproven Lions defense next Sunday.

Ravens' Ty'Son Williams: Part of backfield rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Despite the addition of Devonta Freeman to the Ravens' active roster, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic believes that Williams and Latavius Murray continue to profile as the team's top two backs.

With that in mind, Zrebiec suggests that Freeman figures to log limited touches and see some third-down work in a backfield that offensive coordinator Greg Roman indicates will continue to "rotate guys in and out and try to keep them as fresh as we can." In that context, Williams will continue to see his share of touches Sunday against Kansas City, but Murray and Freeman, to a lesser degree, also will factor in. As is the case in any timeshare, weekly carry allotments could vary if/when any of the team's backs emerges as the hot hand in any given contest.

Ravens' Ty'Son Williams: Scores in debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams rushed nine times for 65 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's 33-27 overtime loss to the Raiders. He also caught three of four targets for 29 yards.

Williams started at tailback in his first career game after the slew of devastating injuries recently endured by the Ravens' backfield. To his credit, the undrafted BYU product got things rolling with a 21-yard catch on Baltimore's second drive, which he capped with a 35-yard touchdown run on a fourth-and-one play later on. In doing so, Williams showed nice burst up the middle and finished with a rather commendable stat line overall. However, despite signing mere days ago, veteran Latavius Murray was also immediately incorporated into the offense, and he topped Williams with 10 carries, gaining 28 yards and scoring once himself and seeing much of his action late in the game after Williams whiffed on a couple pass-protection assignments. Although the Ravens will certainly be pleased by the rookie's performance, especially on such short notice, it'll be interesting to see whether they stick with him as their starter in the upcoming weeks or lean more on the veteran options they've brought aboard, namely Murray and current practice-squad members Le'Veon Bell and Devonta Freeman. In the end, it could prove to be a committee approach, which includes star quarterback Lamar Jackson running as well, but Williams at least helped his cause with a mostly solid showing Monday.

Ravens' Ty'Son Williams: Poised to head Week 1 backfield
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams, Latavius Murray and Trenton Cannon are in line to handle the Ravens' backfield duties Monday night against the Raiders, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.

Per Zrebiec, the Ravens elected not to elevate either Le'Veon Bell or Devonta Freeman from their practice squad in advance of the contest. It's a scenario that Zrebiec believes should result in Williams seeing the bulk of the team's backfield work Monday night, with Murray -- a recent addition to the roster -- a candidate to mix in, while Cannon makes his mark on special teams

Ravens' Ty'Son Williams: Expected to lead backfield Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams is expected to draw the start at running back for the Ravens in their opener against the Raiders on Monday, per Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com.

As Hensley points out, Williams is the only healthy running back who was on Baltimore's roster before Wednesday, but in the wake of season-ending injuries to J.K. Dobbins (knee), Gus Edwards (knee) and Justice Hill (Achilles), Williams' profile in the team's offense has expanded as Week 1 approaches. With news that Latavius Murray is slated to join the ranks, Trenton Cannon in reserve and the potential that Le'Veon Bell and/or Devonta Freeman could be promoted from the Ravens' practice squad, this is a fluid backfield situation. By necessity, it appears that Williams is headed for a key role Monday night, with a committee/hot hand approach a plausible outcome in subsequent weeks.

Ravens' Ty'Son Williams: Could move to starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams could be set to start at running back Week 1 at Las Vegas with Gus Edwards suffering a potential season-ending knee injury in Thursday's practice, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Williams was slated to become the backup to Edwards after Justice Hill suffered a season-ending Achilles injury. He'll now likely take over the starting role in Week 1 if Edwards is confirmed to have a significant injury. Also in the Ravens' backfield mix following a recent string of serious injuries are Trenton Cannon and veteran Le'Veon Bell, who is a candidate to be promoted from the team's practice squad in short order. Additionally, Zrebiec suggests that free agents Latavius Murray or Devonta Freeman could be potential reinforcements. In any case, Williams has gone from being a fantasy sleeper/backup to target to a likely Week 1 starter for Baltimore.

Ravens' Ty'Son Williams: More work could be on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that Williams' teammate, Justice Hill, has suffered a torn Achilles.

Assuming the report is confirmed, Gus Edwards and Williams would profile as the Ravens' top two healthy backs as Week 1 approaches, though the team is likely to add backfield depth in short order. In any case, Williams' chances of earning his share of touches behind Edwards early on this season appear to be increasing, in the wake of Hill's reported injury.

Ravens' Ty'Son Williams: Wins roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach John Harbaugh confirmed that Williams will have a spot on the initial 53-man roster, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports. "You do the math, he's there," Harbaugh said Monday. "He'll be out there playing, and he's ready to go."

After making a push this summer to replace Justice Hill as the No. 3 running back, Williams may even enter Week 1 as the No. 2. The Ravens lost J.K. Dobbins to a torn ACL on Saturday, leaving Gus Edwards as the only back on the roster with more than 70 NFL carries. Williams is a 2020 UDFA who spent his rookie season on Baltimore's practice squad, and he'll likely be ticketed for single-digit carries if he does have a part in the game plan Week 1 at Las Vegas.

Ravens' Ty'Son Williams: Opportunity knocks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams' role in the Ravens offense is in line to expand following reports that fellow running back J.K. Dobbins has suffered a season-ending torn ACL, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.

In the absence of Dobbins, Gus Edwards is slated to step into the the team's lead role, while Williams, Justice Hill and undrafted rookie Nate McCrary are in the mix for complementary work. Given that Hill has missed time with an ankle issue and Williams has been impressive this summer, Hensley suggests that Williams could end up securing the No. 2 role behind Edwards heading into the coming season. It's still possible that the Ravens could add some backfield depth in short order, but in the wake of Dobbins' injury, Williams now is worth considering late in drafts or as a low-cost flyer in bidding formats.

Ravens' Ty'Son Williams: Moves up depth chart
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams took five touches for 41 yards in Saturday's preseason win over Washington, while teammate J.K. Dobbins left the game early with an apparent knee injury.

Williams' competition for the No. 3 RB spot, Justice Hill, missed a second straight preseason game with an ankle sprain. Dobbins then suffered a potentially severe knee injury on the opening drive, leaving Williams, Gus Edwards and Nate McCrary as Baltimore's only healthy tailbacks. Given the circumstances, McCrary got most of the playing time, as Edwards may now be the Week 1 starter and Williams the backup. If Dobbins' injury indeed turns out to be serious, the Ravens could also bring in more backfield help around cutdown day this upcoming Tuesday. Williams is a second-year pro who spent nearly all of his rookie season on the practice squad after going undrafted out of BYU in spring 2020. He ran for only 1,120 yards in four seasons between three different FBS programs, but the Ravens seem to like what they've seen on the practice field.

Ravens' Ty'Son Williams: Impresses against Panthers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams had 10 carries for 47 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's preseason win over the Panthers. He added two catches for 15 yards.

Williams continues to make the most of his opportunities in light of Justice Hill's injury. He had one of the highlights of the game -- an impressive 20-yard touchdown run -- and was solid with his other carries as well. Williams is still not a lock to make the 53-man roster, but he continues to make a strong case.

Ravens' Ty'Son Williams: Making case for roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams has impressed during the preseason and could be in the running for a roster spot, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports. "He's done really well. Hopefully, it will continue. I think he will be able to. He's looking good," coach John Harbaugh said.

The second-year back out of BYU by way of South Carolina spent the bulk of the 2020 season on the Ravens' practice squad. Williams has worked his way into consideration for at least a practice squad spot thus far in camp, but there could be room for more. Williams ran for 41 yards in the preseason opener and added five receptions for 23 yards. Justice Hill is the favorite for the No.3 spot on the depth chart and Baltimore is unlikely to keep four running backs, so Williams still has his work cut out for him. Per Zrebiec, Williams is at least giving the Ravens coaches "something to think about" as the season looms.
