Devonta Freeman signed to Ravens active roster

The Baltimore Ravens have promoted running back Devonta Freeman to the active roster.

Fantasy Impact: 

The Ravens released Trenton Cannon earlier this week, so the writing was on the wall that one of Freeman or Le'Veon Bell would get a promotion for Week 2. Ty'Son Williams looked good as a runner but received just 51 percent of the snaps against the Las Vegas Raiders, despite knowing the playbook much better than Latavius Murray and Cannon. Murray played 14 fewer snaps and was much less effective but still received 10 carries to Williams' 9. Enter Devonta Freeman. The need for another veteran on the active roster was accelerated by Williams' struggles in pass protection, something that will be key for the Ravens until Alejandro Villanueva adjusts to his new scheme. The addition of Freeman to the active roster suggests that Le'Veon Bell is still not in football shape and that a dreaded three man running back by committee may be forming in Baltimore. Freeman is nothing more than a speculative add at this point but does eat into the upside of both Ty'Son Williams and Latavius Murray.
