Week 3 at Detroit Lions
Ty’Son Williams split work last week and wound up with 77 yards on the ground and 16 additional yards on a pair of receptions. Williams is averaging 6.5 yards per carry through two games so far, giving him the highest upside of the Ravens’ running backs. He will continue to lose touches, especially around the goal line, to Lamar Jackson, however, limiting his upside.
This week, Williams faces a Lions defense that has allowed big games to Elijah Mitchell and Aaron Jones so far this season and ranked dead last in aFPA to opposing running backs a year ago. Williams’ workload and the presence of Lamar Jackson as a goal-line running option limits his upside a little, but in a great matchup, we have him ranked as a solid RB2 option this week.
