2. The Baltimore Ravens should give Keaton Mitchell a chance

The Baltimore Ravens have been looking for an element of explosion out of their running backs ever since they lost J.K. Dobbins in week one. Gus Edwards is a power back, and they need a compliment. Justice Hill got banged up, and then Kenyan Drake had a costly fumble, Hill took back over but had a bad fumble as well. All said the Ravens do not have an answer from their speed back.

Last week may have been the last straw for Justice Hill. The Ravens activated Keaton Mitchell. While he did not play, that was expected, considering he is a rookie, and this is his first game back from an injury. However, now he has had two weeks to practice, he is obviously in full health, and the Ravens need his speed. Why not give him a shot?

Mitchell could be the spark that this offense needs. The Lions' run defense has toughness, but a speed back could catch them off-guard, especially an unknown coming back from the IR.

The Ravens have to give Mitchell a look this week if they want to compete with the Detroit Lions.
