Ricky Williams Signs With Baltimore Ravens

Running back Ricky Williams is moving north after signing a two-year deal with the Baltimore Ravens. Williams will now be the main back-up to running back Ray Rice.

Williams will move into a role left vacant by Willis McGahee and Le'Ron McClain, who left for Denver and Kansas City respectively.

The 34-year-old Williams rushed for 673 yards and three touchdowns (2 rushing, 1 receiving) last season with the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy football impact: This hurts Rice's value slightly. Williams will likely play a similar role to the one McGahee played last year. McGahee sniped five touchdowns from Rice and accounted for 380 rushing yards. According to The Source's TOP 200, Rice is still a solid first-round pick, but be prepared to watch him lose some goalline touches to Williams.
