Baltimore Ravens RB Ty'Son Williams' usage decreased in the second half of the team's Week 1 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders was due mainly to the team wanting to get other running backs more involved, offensive coordinator Greg Roman said Thursday, Sept. 16. Roman added that the days of one back playing a full game are over.
Huddle Up: Williams had some impressive numbers Monday night, averaging 7.2 yards on nine attempts -- including a 35-yard touchdown burst -- and caught 3-of-4 targets for 29 yards, but he also had some flubbed exchanges with QB Lamar Jackson and was shaky at times in pass protection. Devonta Freeman has been promoted to the active roster, and Murray very much remains in the picture, but Williams still projects as the Ravens' lead back -- but at a RB3/flex level.

Baltimore Ravens RB Ty'son Williams rushed nine times for 65 yards and a touchdown in Week 1 against the Las Vegas Raiders, and he added three receptions for 29 yards on four targets.
Huddle Up: Williams and recently signed Latavius Murray split the carries for Baltimore, picking up the slack after losing J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards in the past few weeks due to season-ending injuries. Williams is worth scooping up off the waiver wire in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams if you need depth at the position. The Ravens host the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 2 on Sunday Night Football.
