RB - BAL
Week 8 Outlook
Ravens RB Latavius Murray has officially been ruled out for Week 7 against the Bengals with an ankle injury.
Murray hasn't been very efficient as a runner for Baltimore, but he has managed to find the end zone in two of the last three weeks. In his absence, fantasy managers should expect Devonta Freeman and Le'Veon Bell to see an increased workload. It's a dart throw, but one of these two backs will likely generate low-end RB2/FLEX numbers for Week 7 against the Bengals.
Per Jonas Shaffer, veteran RB Latavius Murray is unlikely to play on Sunday versus the Bengals with a ankle injury.
After not practicing all week and being absent from Friday's practice as well, Murray is now unlikely to play Sunday. If the veteran is to miss, expect a combination of Devonta Freeman, Le'Veon Bell, and Ty'Son Williams to fill in.
Latavius Murray (ankle) has yet to practice this week. His status for Week 7 remains questionable but right now he is trending in the wrong direction.
Tomorrow will be a big indicator of Murray's status for Sunday. If he were unable to play, the Ravens will likely use a committee of Devonta Freeman, Le'Veon Bell, and Ty'son Williams.
Ravens RB Latavius Murray (ankle) was sidelined during Wednesday's practice.
Murray exited the team's Week 6 game against the Chargers with the injury. It's unclear at this time if he'll be able to play in Week 7. Le'Veon Bell, Devonta Freeman, and Ty'Son Williams would likely form a committee if Murray can't go.
Baltimore Ravens running back Latavius Murray (ankle) carried the ball nine times for 44 yards and a touchdown in a 34-6 win over the Chargers in Week 6. He added 12 yards on two receptions.
Murray was on his way to a productive game but he limped off with an injured ankle in the third quarter. Running backs Le'Veon Bell and Devonta Freeman carried the load the rest of the way. Head coach John Harbaugh did tell reporters after the game that he did not believe Murray's injury was serious but fantasy gamers will want to monitor his participation in practice throughout the week. The Ravens face the Bengals in Week 7.
