Baltimore Ravens RB Bernard Pierce (head) left the third preseason game early and is going through the concussion protocol.
Fantasy Tip: The team likely will have more information about the injury after the game, so owners should monitor the situation. Pierce is scheduled to start the first two games of the regular season since Ray Rice has been suspended. Lorenzo Taliaferro could start if Pierce is unable to play but probably is not more than a late-round flier in most leagues.

Baltimore Ravens OT Ricky Wagner has won the starting right tackle job, according to head coach John Harbaugh. Harbaugh said Wagner earned the job.

Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice (shoulder) suffered a shoulder bruise in the team's preseason game Saturday, Aug. 16, but it "shouldn't be anything too serious," according to head coach John Harbaugh.
Sat, 16 Aug 2014 17:30:43 -0700
Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice's (shoulder) X-rays on his shoulder came back negative.
Fantasy Tip: It looks like Rice's shoulder injury is nothing serious. He makes a decent upside pick as a low-end RB2 this year as he tries to rebound from a rough 2013 campaign.
Sat, 16 Aug 2014 17:23:52 -0700
Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice (shoulder) was taken to the locker room to have his shoulder looked at by the training staff during the team's preseason game Saturday, Aug. 16.
Thu, 14 Aug 2014 11:13:37 -0700
Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice is expected to work with the first-team offense during the second preseason game but likely will start losing snaps to RBs Bernard Pierce and Lorenzo Taliaferro since he will sit out the first two games of the regular season. Pierce and Taliaferro have received more work with the starting offense during practice, and Pierce is expected to start the third preseason game.
Fantasy Tip: Rice's fantasy value probably will not be affected much by the suspension since it is only two games. Rice should be considered a low-end No. 2 running back or weekly flex option. Pierce should also be seen as a flex option since he receives snaps even when Rice is playing. Pierce could have the potential to become a fantasy starter especially if he plays well during the first two games. Owners who select Rice should consider taking Pierce as well.

Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice showed nice acceleration and decisiveness on his runs during the preseason game against the San Francisco 49ers Thursday, Aug. 7. "I do feel different," he said of his slimmer frame. "I guess it's safe to say I feel like back when I was a rookie. That's the weight I'm continuing to try to play at. Obviously, when I went through when I added a little bit of extra weight, you can't make the cuts like you want to do." Rice ran for 17 yards on three carries on the team's first drive.
Thu, 07 Aug 2014 14:42:38 -0700
Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice is showing good burst, acceleration and vision, according to head coach John Harbaugh.
Fantasy Tip: Even with the two-game suspension, Rice still has the ability to be an RB2 in new offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak's offense, especially in PPR leagues.
Thu, 07 Aug 2014 12:40:02 -0700
Baltimore Ravens RB Bernard Pierce has been the best running back in training camp, in the opinion of Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com. Pierce has had the best transition to offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak's stretch, zone-blocking runs.
Fantasy Tip: We already know that Ray Rice is coming off the worst season of his career and will be suspended for the first two games. This'll make Pierce a popular play for at least the first two regular season games, and depending on how he performs, he could seriously cut into Rice's workload for the remainder of the season. Pierce is a solid RB3 or 4 and a necessary handcuff if you own Rice.
Mon, 04 Aug 2014 18:42:47 -0700
Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice is in "tremendous shape" and has looked "explosive" in camp, according to head coach Jim Harbaugh.
Fantasy Tip: He was a first-round pick in fantasy leagues as recently as 2013, but with his impending two-game suspension and his declining numbers, Rice is a RB3 at this point.
Mon, 28 Jul 2014 06:45:32 -0700
Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice did not appeal his two-game suspension.
Fantasy Tip: He rates as a mid-to-low RB2.
Thu, 24 Jul 2014 15:00:01 -0700
Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice will be docked an additional game check fine based on his 2013 salary of $1 million, not based on his 2014 salary of $4 million. That comes out to a $58,823 fine instead of a $235,294 fine, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen.
Thu, 24 Jul 2014 07:24:17 -0700
Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice will be suspended for the first two games of the season, according to sources. The announcement is expected Thursday, July 24.
Fantasy Tip: Rice rates as a mid-to-low RB2 after he misses the first two games. Bernard Pierce will likely take over in Rice's stead and should continue to see looks when he returns. Pierce is a low-end RB3 or a good RB4.
Thu, 24 Jul 2014 07:06:22 -0700
Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice could just be suspended two games for his off-the-field conduct this offseason, according to Yahoo! Sports' Rand Getlin.
Fantasy Tip: That would be a moderate surprise and would moderately elevate his draft stock. He'd be promoted from a RB3 that was expected to miss four games to a mid-rate RB2.
Fri, 04 Jul 2014 05:36:11 -0700
Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice has lost 20 pounds since last season and has regained much of his old quickness. Last season, he lost the ability to run away from defenders because he was too heavy while struggling with hip and quadriceps injuries.
Fantasy Tip: Rice is in the RB3 range due to his likely suspension.
Mon, 30 Jun 2014 10:58:12 -0700
Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice's pending suspension may cause the Ravens to take a running back-by-committee approach. RB Bernard Pierce would be the likely front runner, with RBs Justin Forsett , Lorenzo Taliaferro, Cierre Wood and Fitzgerald Toussaint in the mix.
Fantasy Tip: It's hard to gauge these players' values because we don't know how long Rice will be suspended, if he is suspended. Assuming Rice does receive a three- or four-game suspension, Pierce would fall in high-end RB3 to low-end RB2 range for that period of time, while Rice's season-long value would take a big blow and spiral him into RB3 or flex territory.
Thu, 19 Jun 2014 11:19:36 -0700
Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said the team has no timetable on when a decision will be announced on a possible suspension for RB Ray Rice.
Fantasy Tip: Rice, for obvious reasons, is a tough running back to rank this year until we have a better idea of how much time, if any, he'll be forced to sit out. He's also coming off the worst statistical season of his career. Rice remains a huge risk.
Mon, 16 Jun 2014 13:57:55 -0700
Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice could face a significant punishment from the NFL due to a physical altercation with his then-fiance in an Atlantic City, N.J. casino this offseason. According to sources, there is potential for more than a four- to six-game suspension.
Fantasy Tip: Rice is a midrange RB2 at this time, even without the potential of a looming suspension. The number of games docked will dictate his fantasy worth.
Mon, 16 Jun 2014 13:38:43 -0700

Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice and the team are bracing for a potential multiple-game suspension from the NFL due to a physical altercation with his wife an Atlantic City, N.J. casino this offseason. No discipline has been determined yet, but Rice is expected to meet soon with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.
Fantasy Tip: In similar cases, first-time offenders in domestic violence incidents such as Rice were given suspensions of one or two games. Fantasy owners will want to drop Rice a few notches on their cheat sheets once it is determined what kind of punishment is meted out.
Tue, 20 May 2014 13:44:12 -0700
Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice will avoid jail time in his felony aggravated assault case after being accepted into a pretrial intervention program. Rice could still be facing a suspension under the NFL personal conduct policy.
Thu, 01 May 2014 07:22:49 -0700
Updating an earlier report, Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice applied for the pretrial intervention program, which allows certain defendants - often first-time offenders - to avoid formal prosecution. The prosecutor offered a plea deal that includes probation with no jail time and anger management counseling. If he's denied the intervention program, he would accept the plea deal and avoid jail time.

Thu, 27 Mar 2014 13:29:51 -0700
Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice was indicted on third-degree aggravated assault charges Thursday, March 27, for last month's incident at an Atlantic City casino. The charge carries a three- to five-year prison term.
Fantasy Tip: This is something that will be an ongoing process, but Rice will surely be considered for a suspension from the league next season. His fantasy value will continue to drop, as a result.
Wed, 26 Mar 2014 10:38:38 -0700
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said that the league will allow the legal process to play out and "let the facts dictate" Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice's fate on the heels of his arrest last month for simple assault at a casino. The league continues to monitor Rice's legal situation, but there is no timetable on a possible suspension.
Fantasy Tip: Rice is coming off his most unproductive season in his career, and as he ages, he's likely seen the peak of his productivity. The potential for suspension only lessens his upcoming draft value even more.

"Our goal is to get him going, and he's excited to get going and put last year behind him," Kubiak said. Kubiak plans to share the touches between Rice and RB Bernard Pierce.

"I played through an injury and I probably should have thought twice about it, but I'm glad I was able to push through the season and not have any surgical procedures," said Rice. "One thing I know my body needed was rest, and we had a tough turnaround, and we didn't do what we wanted to this year, but I'm positive that things are looking better for next year already. We'll get this thing rolling again."
Wed, 22 Jan 2014 13:23:16 -0800
