Ravens | Bernard Pierce limited

Thu, 18 Sep 2014 13:14:33 -0700

Baltimore Ravens RB Bernard Pierce (thigh) was limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Pierce should still be able to play this week against a subpar Cleveland Browns run defense. His FantasyScore price could be worth it at $6,500.

Ravens | Bernard Pierce heads backfield

Thu, 11 Sep 2014 20:42:57 -0700

Baltimore Ravens RB Bernard Pierce had 22 carries for 96 yards in the team's Week 2 game Thursday, Sept. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Pierce's stay in the doghouse didn't last long, and he bounced back from his benching in Week 1 to carry the load in the Baltimore backfield. He could be a worth a look in FantasyScore in Week 3 when the Ravens take on a Cleveland defense that was shredded for more than 500 yards of offense in Week 1.

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 have faith in Bernard Pierce

Tue, 09 Sep 2014 15:55:01 -0700

Baltimore Ravens RB Bernard Pierce hasn't lost the faith of head coach John Harbaugh after fumbling in the team's Week 1 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.

Fantasy Tip: While Justin Forsett, a hot waiver wire pick-up this week, stole the show in Week 1, Pierce remains firmly in the picture with Ray Rice no longer on the team. Pierce will cost you $6,100 (12.2% of cap) in FantasyScore this week against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Until we know more about this backfield timeshare, you may want to look elsewhere for a running back.

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.

Ravens | Bernard Pierce benched

Sun, 07 Sep 2014 13:08:39 -0700

Baltimore Ravens RB Bernard Pierce was benched during the team's Week 1 game because of fumbling issues, according to head coach John Harbaugh.

Fantasy Tip: Pierce probably will start again Week 2 but could be on a short leash. Justin Forsett and Lorenzo Taliaferro could have bigger roles in the game and may have some value in fantasy leagues.

Ravens | Bernard Pierce probable

Fri, 05 Sep 2014 12:33:47 -0700

Baltimore Ravens RB Bernard Pierce (concussion) fully practiced Friday, Sept. 5, and is probable for the team's Week 1 game.

Fantasy Tip: Pierce should get the bulk of the carries during the first two weeks of the regular season, and is not a bad value in Week 1 with a FantasyScore price of $5,300 (10.60% of cap).

Ravens | Bernard Pierce a full participant

Thu, 04 Sep 2014 13:18:55 -0700

Baltimore Ravens RB Bernard Pierce (concussion) practiced in full Thursday, Sept. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Pierce will receive the lion's share of the touches in the first two weeks with Ray Rice suspended, but in Week 1 against the Cincinnati Bengals, he may not have much room to run. Don't automatically expect Pierce to produce big numbers as the starting back.
