Fans were questioning what year it was when running back Le’Veon Bell scored a touchdown for the Baltimore Ravens this past week. In his second game action with the team, Bell had eight carries for 18 yards and a touchdown. Devonta Freeman, another free agent running back picked up by the team, also found the endzone in the game and had nine carries for 53 yards. This is a frustrating situation for fantasy managers though as all three running back options for the Ravens found the endzone last week so it is going to be even more difficult to determine who to play.
Fantasy Football analysis: Ravens RBs Le’Veon Bell, Devonta Freeman
Bell and Freeman have a great matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals this week. Even though the Bengals are giving up the 18th most fantasy points per game to opposing running backs, Bell and Freeman have value. The Bengals defense has given up double-digit fantasy points to at least one running back in five of six games so far this season. Freeman was the better rusher in last week’s game, so he gets a slight boost between the two.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Starting running back Latavius Murray is banged up with an ankle injury. If he happens to sit START Freeman and FLEX Bell. If Murray is active, START him and FLEX Freeman while SITTING Bell.
