Ravens | Justin Forsett earning his keep

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 07:32:02 -0700

Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett has done everything he can to own the starting running back job, in the opinion of beat writer Jamison Hensley. "He's making yards after the hit on his own," head coach John Harbaugh said. "That's kind of how you measure a back."

Fantasy Tip: The Ravens' backfield is a muddy situation, but Forsett is the most valuable in PPR leagues on FantasyScore. Lorenzo Taliaferro has been productive running the ball, but one has to believe that Bernard Pierce (thigh) will have a chance to be involved once he's 100 percent. Taliaferro and Pierce are just depth backs in fantasy right now, but both are flex options.

Ravens | Two RBs split carries in win

Sun, 28 Sep 2014 18:36:42 -0700

Baltimore Ravens RBs Justin Forsett and Lorenzo Taliaferro nearly split the carries in half in Week 4 against the Carolina Panthers with RB Bernard Pierce (thigh) held out as a precaution. Forsett carried 14 times for 66 yards and a touchdown, while the rookie Taliaferro had 15 carries for 58 yards and a score. Forsett also added three grabs for 31 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners of Forsett and Taliaferro had a reprieve this weekend, as it appeared all week Pierce would be ready to go, creating a three-headed monster in the backfield. All three are likely to see carries in Week 5 against the Indianapolis Colts.

Ravens | Ravens RB situation muddled

Fri, 26 Sep 2014 17:07:59 -0700

Baltimore Ravens RBs Bernard Pierce, Justin Forsett and Lorenzo Taliaferro have each led the team in rushing in a game this season. The Ravens are the only team to have a back with at least 90 rushing yards, giving them the eighth-ranked rushing attack despite having no one in the Top 12 among leading individual rushers. The backs each say they are uncertain who will get the ball in Week 4 against the Carolina Panthers, and offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak only indicated Friday, Sept. 26, that all three will play. "They're all going to play," Kubiak said. "We're going to keep a fresh guy on the field - that's what we're going to go - and if we feel like one guy has the hot hand, so to speak, then obviously he's going to go back out. I want them all to prepare as if they're starting."

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners cannot stand a running back situation like this, as one week a guy might be super productive only to disappear the following week. While Pierce is expected to start, Forsett could be the best fantasy option. He has at least 70 yards in each of his three games. Taliaferro might be the back near the goal line, so he has some appeal, too, if the price is right. Pierce, despite his starting status, might be the most risky since he is coming back from injury and has two hungry backs behind him.

Baltimore Ravens RB Bernard Pierce (thigh) is inactive Sunday, Sept. 21, for the Week 3 game. RB Justin Forsett will start.

Fantasy Tip: Forsett ($4,700; 9.4% of your cap) is a great, cost-efficient flex play on FantasyScore. There is rain in the forecast in Cleveland, and he could be utilized heavily.

Fantasy Tip: Forsett ($4,700; 9.4% of your cap) is a great play on FantasyScore if Pierce doesn't play. There is rain in the forecast in Cleveland, and he could be utilized heavily. He could be a PPR diamond in the rough this week.

Ravens | Bernard Pierce should run most

Wed, 10 Sep 2014 07:49:27 -0700

Baltimore Ravens RB Bernard Pierce figures to be the running back with the most carries at the end of the season, in the opinion of beat writer Jamison Hensley.

Fantasy Tip: Pierce ($6,100; 12.2% of your cap) is a risky RB2 on FantasyScore for Week 2. Justin Forsett ($4,700; 9.4%) is a better value as a flex option in the short term.

Ravens | Ravens RBs to see a lot of work

Tue, 09 Sep 2014 11:29:31 -0700

Baltimore Ravens RBs Bernard Pierce and Justin Forsett will "both play a lot" in Week 2 against the Pittsburgh Steelers Thursday, Sept. 11, and RB Lorenzo Taliaferro "will be a big part of it, too," according to head coach John Harbaugh. Harbaugh said Pierce is fine health-wise, but he was benched in Week 1 after fumbling. Forsett has the trust of offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak after the two worked together with the Houston Texans.

Fantasy Tip: Forsett should be atop most waiver wire target boards following Week 1 and the release of Ray Rice. However, despite his familiarity with Kubiak's system, it could be a committee approach moving forward, and Pierce could eventually become the lead back. Forsett will cost you $4,700 (9.4% of cap) compared to $6,100 (12.2% of cap) for Pierce. Forsett makes more sense this week as a flex option.

NFL | Ray Rice video news to league

Mon, 08 Sep 2014 07:59:06 -0700

The NFL didn't see Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice strike his now wife, Janay Rice, in video footage before suspending him for two games, according to NFL Vice President of Communications Brian McCarthy. "We requested from law enforcement any and all information about the incident, including the video from inside the elevator," McCarthy said. "That video was not made available to us and no one in our office has seen it until today."

Fantasy Tip: Rice could face further disciplinary action, and his Week 3 return could be in jeopardy. Bernard Pierce and Justin Forsett are weak RB3s or flex options.

Ravens | Ray Rice video might re-open probe

Mon, 08 Sep 2014 07:47:01 -0700

Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice's domestic violence case could be re-opened by the NFL. Video footage of Rice reportedly striking his now wife, Janay Rice, in a casino elevator was released to the public. The league could render further disciplinary action.

Fantasy Tip: Rice is eligible to play in Week 3, but might be subject to missing more time. Bernard Pierce was benched in Week 1, and Justin Forsett's stock continues to rise. Forsett could be a bargain buy on FantasyScore as a flex option in Week 2 against Pittsburgh.
