The Baltimore Ravens hope to keep up their strong play in Week 3 against the Detroit Lions, leaning on a ground attack producing 5.9 yards per carry so far this season. Even with J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards done for the season, the Ravens have found a way to get the job done on the ground with replacement players.
Fantasy Football analysis: Ravens RBs Latavius Murray, Devonta Freeman
Murray and Freeman have entered the Baltimore backfield, which continues to be in flux. There’s a chance fans see Le’Veon Bell get into the mix soon, but he’s unlikely to play in Week 3. Murray has been more involved in the offense than Freeman, who got just two carries in his first game with the team.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
If you’re in a deep league (14+ teams) or a league with multiple flex positions, Murray is a viable play against the Lions. He’s scored two touchdowns and usually gets the ball in redzone situations. Freeman is not a viable play at the moment as he’s clearly third in the running back pecking order.
