3. Latavius Murray, RB, Ravens: 50.5 rushing yards (o/u)

The Ravens are still trying to figure out their running back rotation, and that much was evident last week when they needed a controversial, last-second run from Lamar Jackson to reach 100 yards rushing on the day.

The running game has struggled in recent weeks, and it’s very possible the Ravens look to shake things up in Week 5. That could result in fewer touches for the man who led the way last week, Latavius Murray.

Murray was the de facto lead back a week ago with Ty’Son Williams on the bench as a healthy scratch. The 31-year-old carried the ball 18 times but finished with just 58 yards on the ground.

It was a lackluster day for Murray who doesn’t appear to have the same burst that his young teammate does. The same could be said for Devonta Freeman and perhaps to a lesser extend Le’Veon Bell.

Regardless, it seems unlikely that Murray receives the bulk of the carries again this week, especially if the Ravens play to go with the hot hand.

There’s a decent chance that Williams is active in Week 5, and if that’s the case, expect him to eat into Murray’s carries significantly.

The Ravens could also use more of Bell given that he’s had another week to get into shape and adapt to the offense.

Murray barely topped this mark last week with a full workload. The safe play here is to bet the under.
