Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice carried 17 times for 67 yards in the Week 14 game against the Minnesota Vikings, and he added five receptions for 42 yards.
Fantasy Tip: It was just the second time since Week 5 that Rice posted more than 100 total yards from scrimmage. He remains more of an RB2 in most fantasy leagues due to his inconsistency and lack of touchdown scoring. He has just one touchdown over the past seven games.
Mon, 18 Nov 2013 06:06:27 -0800
Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice had 25 carries for 131 yards and a touchdown in Week 11.
Sun, 17 Nov 2013 16:22:06 -0800
Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice carried 25 times for 131 yards and a touchdown in the Week 11 game against the Chicago Bears, and he added three receptions for 17 yards.
Fantasy Tip: It was Rice's first 100-yard game of the season, and his first touchdown of any kind since Week 5. He remains more of an RB2 or flex fantasy play heading into next week's games until he starts to produce these type of stat lines more consistently.
Mon, 11 Nov 2013 14:58:24 -0800
Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said RB Ray Rice (hip) health has been a big factor in his disappointing season so far. Rice's longest run of the season is for 14 yards, and he's averaging just 1.62 yards per tote on 29 carries since he said he was healthy coming out of the Week 8 bye. Harbaugh suggested he may ride the hot hand out of the backfield as the season progresses.
Fantasy Tip: Rice is more of an RB2 or 3 if this keeps up. Bernard Pierce hasn't been very effective, either, thanks to a struggling offensive line.
Thu, 07 Nov 2013 09:22:16 -0800
Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice said he hasn't lost a step this season and said he's healthy, despite having 97 carries for only 259 yards this year, good for an average of 2.7 yards per carry. The Ravens rank 29th in the league in rushing offense. "If you watch the film, you'd understand that we've been playing pretty good fronts," he said. "We've got eight games left, and that's my focus now." A hip flexor strain in Week 2 limited his explosiveness, but he said he's been feeling fine in recent weeks. RB Bernard Pierce has averaged only 2.7 yards per carry, too, as the offensive line has struggled to open running lanes all year.
Fantasy Tip: Rice's disappointing season is probably a combination of his early season injury and the offensive line struggling. You have to remember that Rice has plenty of mileage on his legs, too, so he may finally be starting to see the effects of that. The second half of the season offers some hope, though, as he faces some weaker run-stuffing units down the stretch.
Tue, 05 Nov 2013 19:19:15 -0800
Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice proclaimed he was at full strength in Week 9 against the Cleveland Browns, but he managed just 17 yards rushing on 11 carries.
Fantasy Tip: Over his past three games, Rice has managed 96 rushing yards on 40 carries, and he hasn't found the end zone during that stretch. He has been so poor lately, that he should be considered more of an RB2 or flex fantasy play than an RB1 at this point.
Tue, 22 Oct 2013 09:41:55 -0700
The Baltimore Ravens changed up their offensive scheme, with QB Joe Flacco running more plays from the shotgun and spread formations in Week 7. "We wanted to do a little of that and see if we could keep them on the field and run them around a little bit," Flacco said. The Ravens also ran the no huddle offense. These moves opened up the running game, and the team was able to establish the run with more success. RB Ray Rice had 15 carries for 45 yards and RB Bernard Pierce had six carries for 13 yards. The Ravens averaged 3.2 yards per carry.
Mon, 07 Oct 2013 21:52:42 -0700
Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice (hip), who was injured last month in a game with the Cleveland Browns, is no longer listed on the team's injury report after the Week 5 win against the Miami Dolphins.
Fantasy Tip: Rice appears to be past his hip injury, and hopefully he is ready to start producing like a first-round fantasy pick. He showed glimpses of brilliance with a pair of much-needed scores for his owners, but he still needs to get his average yards per carry up a bit.
Sun, 06 Oct 2013 21:45:18 -0700
With his two touchdowns in Week 5 against the Miami Dolphins, Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice now has 42 touchdowns for his career to move past former TE Todd Heap for second place on the franchise's all-time touchdowns list. Only former RB Jamal Lewis (47) has more scores.
Sun, 06 Oct 2013 20:04:04 -0700
Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice ran for a season-best 74 yards in Week 5 against the Miami Dolphins, and he caught six passes for 28 yards. Rice also ran for a pair of touchdowns, his first time in the end zone since rushing for a touchdown in Week 1.
Fantasy Tip: Rice looked healthier than he has been all season, but he still averaged just 2.7 yards per carry, so don't get too excited just yet. Still, keep riding Rice as a low-end RB1 heading into Week 6 against the Green Bay Packers, who might be playing without LB Clay Matthews (thumb).
Wed, 02 Oct 2013 09:18:53 -0700
Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said the team would like to get RB Ray Rice more involved in the passing game Week 5. Rice was used often in pass protection during the team's Week 4 game.
Sun, 29 Sep 2013 19:33:03 -0700
Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice (hip) was active in Week 4 against the Buffalo Bills, but he managed just 17 rushing yards on five carries and no receptions.
Fantasy Tip: The past two weeks have been disappointing for fantasy owners of Rice, as he was inactive last week, and barely active this week. He'll face a decent Miami Dolphins rush defense which entered Week 4 allowing an average of 108.7 yards per game on the ground.
Sun, 29 Sep 2013 08:45:40 -0700
Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice (hip) is active for the team's Week 4 game.
Fantasy Tip: Rice missed last week because of the injury but is healthy enough to get on the field this week. Since he is coming back from injury, he probably will share carries with Bernard Pierce during the game. Owners should see Rice as no worse than a flex option for Week 4.
Sun, 29 Sep 2013 06:24:33 -0700
Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice (hip) is expected to play in the team's Week 4 game. His injury is a pain tolerance issue at this point.
Fantasy Tip: If Rice is active, he is a must start in all fantasy football formats.
Fri, 27 Sep 2013 12:33:44 -0700
Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice (hip) was limited in practice Friday, Sept. 27, and is questionable for Week 4.
Fantasy Tip: Rice will be a game-time decision Sunday morning. Check back then and have Bernard Pierce on hand ready to be thrown into your starting lineup if Rice doesn't suit up.
Fri, 27 Sep 2013 11:27:18 -0700
Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice (hip) said he'll be a game-time decision in Week 4 against the Buffalo Bills, but said it was "a good sign" that he practiced all week. "Barring no setbacks, there's a chance I could be out there on Sunday," Rice said. "I just have to go out there and warm up and see how it feels out there. I'll let the coaches make the decision for me." Head coach John Harbaugh said Rice would either be listed as questionable or doubtful for the game.
Fantasy Tip: Check back Sunday morning to get the scoop on whether Rice is active against the Bills. If he's playing, he should be in all starting lineups.
Thu, 26 Sep 2013 13:47:27 -0700
Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice (hip) was limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 26.
Wed, 25 Sep 2013 13:16:42 -0700
Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice (hip) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 25.
Fantasy Tip: It's a great sign that Rice is already practicing this early in the week. If he doesn't suffer a setback, there's a very good chance he'll be back on the field this weekend.
Wed, 25 Sep 2013 09:52:57 -0700
Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice (hip) said he will participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 25, and expects to play Week 4.
Fantasy Tip: Rice missed Week 3 because of the injury and his status for Week 4 is uncertain at this point, so owners should watch for his practice participation this week. He may be a game-time decision for the game but should be in all starting lineups if he is able to play.
Mon, 23 Sep 2013 13:37:23 -0700
Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said RB Ray Rice (hip) has a chance to play Week 4.
Fantasy Tip: Owners will have to monitor his practice participation this week to get a better idea of his status for the game. If he does play, he should be in the starting lineup but may be more like a No. 2 running back because he could lose some carries to Bernard Pierce.
Sun, 22 Sep 2013 08:41:56 -0700
The Baltimore Ravens have declared LB Arthur Brown, DL Brandon Williams, DL Chris Canty, WR Deonte Thompson, WR Jacoby Jones, RB Ray Rice, OL Ryan Jensen inactive for Week 3.
Sat, 21 Sep 2013 09:32:32 -0700
Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice (hip) may sit out the next two weeks to make sure his hip injury has time to heal. RB Bernard Pierce is expected to start while Rice is out of the lineup.
Fantasy Tip: It is not known how long Rice will be out, but Pierce likely will be the main running back until Rice returns. Pierce should be owned in all fantasy leagues and will be a No. 3 running back or flex option while Rice is out.
Fri, 20 Sep 2013 12:27:33 -0700
Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice (hip) is listed as doubtful for Week 3.
Fantasy Tip: It appears that Rice will sit out the game because of the hip injury he suffered Week 2. If Rice does miss the game, Bernard Pierce should get a majority of the carries. Pierce should be considered as a low-end No. 2 running back or flex option for Week 3.
Fri, 20 Sep 2013 08:53:24 -0700
Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice (hip) is not practicing Friday, Sept. 20.
Fantasy Tip: There's still a chance he'll play in Week 3. It will probably be a game-time decision.
Thu, 19 Sep 2013 11:42:40 -0700
Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice (hip) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 19.
Fantasy Tip: This is a situation that will have to be monitored right up to game day, but have Bernard Pierce ready to go if Rice canít get out there. Check back for more later in the week.
Wed, 18 Sep 2013 11:14:05 -0700
Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice (hip) is not participating in practice Wednesday, Sept. 18.
Mon, 16 Sep 2013 13:33:33 -0700
Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said RB Ray Rice (hip) is considered day-to-day at this point. The team may hold Rice out of practice this week if he needs to rest.
Fantasy Tip: It is not known if Rice will be able to play Week 3, so owners will have to monitor the situation to see if Rice suffers any setbacks during the week. The fact that Rice does not have to practice this week to play in the game is a good sign that he will start.
Sun, 15 Sep 2013 13:31:01 -0700
Updating an earlier report, Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice (hip) has a strained hip flexor. No MRI is scheduled.
Fantasy Tip: The reports sound positive, and he may be fine for Week 3.
Sun, 15 Sep 2013 12:42:07 -0700
Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice (hip) has gone to the locker room due to a left hip injury Sunday, Sept. 15.

Sun, 15 Sep 2013 12:35:46 -0700
Baltimore Ravens RB Bernard Pierce was in the game one series after RB Ray Rice lost a fumble Sunday, Sept. 15.
Fantasy Tip: It's hard to imagine this will be a continued issue, but it's worth watching.
Fri, 06 Sep 2013 01:15:53 -0700
Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice gained only 36 yards on 12 carries during his team's 49-27 loss to the Denver Broncos on Thursday, Aug. 5.
Fantasy Tip: Way too soon to give up on Rice, especially when you consider the Denver Broncos really, really, really wanted this win in a bad way. Rice will snap back against weaker defenses; just consider this a case of revenge being a dish best served cold (as in eight months after that fateful playoff game)
Mon, 05 Aug 2013 14:06:12 -0700
Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said RB Ray Rice (ankle) turned his ankle during practice Monday, Aug. 5, but the injury is not considered serious.
Sun, 07 Jul 2013 20:47:03 -0700
Baltimore Ravens RB Bernard Pierce has bulked up 10 pounds since last season to 228 pounds. He has always preferred to run through defenders, rather than around them, but is working on battling that natural tendency to plow straight ahead. While RB Ray Rice remains entrenched as the feature back, Pierce's workload is expected to increase this year. He averaged 6.75 carries per game in 2012. However, the team is not planning to dramatically alter how they divide up the playing time.
Tue, 25 Jun 2013 11:24:32 -0700
Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice said he has to be smart about not trying to do too much as he gets older. "Going into Year 6, you have to be smart," Rice said. "I know I have a lot of football left, but the name of the game is longevity for me now. I've proved I can be a Pro Bowl player and I still know I can go out there and make many more Pro Bowls. Part of the lesson you learn is being smart and realizing you can't go out there and do it all on your own. For me, I'm in a great situation, I've a got a young back in Bernard Pierce and we can share the load. But I know when it's a crucial situation, like a fourth down or a big third down, I go out there and make as many plays as a I can."
Tue, 25 Jun 2013 08:20:33 -0700
Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice said he's fine with RB Bernard Pierce seeing a few more carries.
Fantasy Tip: It was reported earlier in the offseason Rice was taking on more of a leadership role, and this supports that. Rice's carries shouldn't take a big hit, but his effectiveness could improve with less exposure to hits.
Sun, 23 Jun 2013 10:01:51 -0700
Baltimore Ravens RB Bernard Pierce could push RB Ray Rice for more carries this season. The team could consider rotating the running backs during games to make sure both stay fresh.
Fantasy Tip: Pierce had a solid rookie campaign and could receive even more carries if he does well during training camp. Rice will still receive a majority of the carries, but Pierce will still have fantasy value this season. He could be a No. 4 running back on a fantasy team.
Mon, 17 Jun 2013 05:47:01 -0700
Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice said he's ready to step into a leadership role for the team. "A leadership role is something I definitely don't mind taking upon now, because I was mentored by one of the greatest leaders probably ever to play the game in Ray Lewis," Rice said. "A lot of his leading was by example, and when he spoke, everybody listened because they had that respect for him. So I think being a leader comes with how much respect people have for you. These guys look at the way I work and they understand that my actions are going to show on the field."
Tue, 14 May 2013 16:29:41 -0700
Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice, who has caught 311 passes for 2,713 yards in the last five years, wants to increase his role in the team's passing game this year. Rice caught 61 passes for 478 yards and one touchdown last season. Rice leads all running backs in the last five years with 91 catches and 863 yards on third downs. He set a franchise record for a running back with 78 receptions for 702 yards and a touchdown in 2009. Rice said that run-game coordinator Juan Castillo will make slight changes to the running game this season.
Fantasy Tip: Rice remains a No. 1 running back, especially in point-per-reception leagues because of his involvement in the passing game. However, he has tons of mileage on his wheels, and at this point in his career, you have to expect some decline in production. He might wind up producing more in line with a No. 2 in regular formats this year.
Mon, 13 May 2013 17:24:53 -0700
Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice said that run-game coordinator Juan Castillo will be making slight adjustments to the running game in 2013. "I'm looking forward to executing a lot of different things that we've always talked about," Rice said, "and staying at a high level."
Mon, 13 May 2013 17:14:12 -0700
Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice is participating in the team's offseason conditioning program, and is in terrific shape. "I picked a specific area where this year, I actually ended the season and realized I was about 213, which I usually play at 212," said Rice. "I try to work on different things." Rice worked out on his own in the 2012 offseason.
Mon, 13 May 2013 16:59:42 -0700
Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice wants to become a bigger receiving threat out of the backfield in 2013. "Now that guys know that I'm a threat out of the backfield, I got to use my hands a little more," Rice said. "I get pushed a lot coming out of the backfield, and that's a sign of respect, but if I can get my hands and get out on pass routes and continue to get open for Joe Flacco."
Fantasy Tip: Rice, one of the premier running backs in the NFL, caught 61 passes for 478 yards and one touchdown in 2012. If he can improve on those numbers, his fantasy football value will continue to increase, especially in PPR leagues.
Wed, 13 Feb 2013 08:53:54 -0800
Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice said the firing of former offensive coordinator Cam Cameron served as a wake-up call for players. "We all felt like, you know what, Cam was the playcaller, but we had to go out there and make the plays," Rice said. "It was an attention grabber. But coach (Jim) Caldwell, what he did for us, he kept things simple. He just preached one thing, 'Let's do what we do, but let's do it really well.'"
Mon, 04 Feb 2013 05:32:31 -0800

Sun, 13 Jan 2013 14:23:27 -0800

Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice has fumbled just seven times in five regular seasons in the NFL; however, in eight playoff games, he has fumbled five times, losing four of them. Rice is averaging one fumble every 30 touches in the postseason. Rice's playoff struggles extend beyond fumbles. He has rushed for more than 70 yards just once in eight games, and with opposing defenses keying on him, he has averaged less than four yards per carry in five games.
Sun, 06 Jan 2013 14:17:15 -0800
Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice rushed for 70 yards on 15 carries and caught one pass for 47 yards against the Indianapolis Colts in the Wild Card playoff game. However, Rice did lose two fumbles during the game.
Sun, 30 Dec 2012 09:05:36 -0800
Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice is expected to see limited playing time, like for only a series or two, in his team's Week 17 game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Fantasy Tip: A change in Rice's outlook for fantasy owners still playing: Rice is much too risky to play this week, and Bernard Pierce looks like an attractive option for those still playing.
Thu, 27 Dec 2012 07:32:36 -0800
Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice has been named AFC Offensive Player of the Week for Week 16.
