Latavius Murray Week 2 Outlook - Chiefs at Ravens

By Pat Fitzmaurice (FantasyPros), Fri, Sep 17th 2021, 8:14am EDT

This is a hard backfield to discern. Williams played 51% of the offensive snaps on Monday, Murray played 31%, and the Ravens promoted Freeman to the active roster Thursday. Williams looked like he had more juice than Murray. Williams had a nice 21-yard gain on a catch in the flat early on. He exploded through the middle on a 35-yard TD run. Murray had a touchdown too, but Williams averaged 7.2 yards per carry, Murray averaged 2.8. On the other hand, Williams whiffed badly on a couple of blocks. The second whiff led to a sack and a fumble, giving the Raiders the ball for what turned out to be the game-winning drive. No doubt John Harbaugh was disappointed with Williams' effort on those plays. As of now I have Williams ranked RB25, Murray RB49, and I still haven't decided where I'm going to slot Freeman. I'll be trying to read the tea leaves on this backfield all the way up to kickoff on Sunday.
