Ravens | Bernard Pierce practices in full

Thu, 18 Dec 2014 14:15:28 -0800

Baltimore Ravens RB Bernard Pierce (back) practiced in full Thursday, Dec. 18, after being limited Wednesday, Dec. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Pierce ($3,000) has had a disappointing season in 2014, but he's looked fresh of late, and Lorenzo Taliaferro is out for the rest of the games. Pierce fits the mold of a nice sleeper play at FantasyScore this week as the complement to Justin Forsett in the backfield.

Ravens | Bernard Pierce is healthy

Sun, 26 Oct 2014 20:12:14 -0700

Baltimore Ravens RB Bernard Pierce was a healthy inactive in Week 8 against the Cincinnati Bengals. Head coach John Harbaugh explained Sunday, Oct. 27, that he felt others gave the team a better chance to win. "We're just doing what we try to do as far as our personnel and getting guys up that we felt gave us the best chance to win the game," Harbaugh said. "We were jammed up. We did what we thought we had to do, and it worked out because our other backs stayed healthy."

Fantasy Tip: With Pierce on the inactive list, rookie Lorenzo Taliaferro ran seven times for 27 yards and a pair of touchdowns while leading the team in receiving with 42 yards on two grabs. Justin Forsett led with 68 rushing yards on 17 carries, and he had three catches for 17 yards. It's bad news for Pierce and his fantasy appeal, as the duo of Forsett and Taliaferro didn't miss a beat.

Ravens | Ravens not moving Bernard Pierce

Sun, 26 Oct 2014 10:25:23 -0700

Baltimore Ravens RB Bernard Pierce is not on the trade block.

Fantasy Tip: Justin Forsett and Lorenzo Taliaferro have been playing well and are seeing most of the work at running back, which has hurt Pierce's fantasy value. Owners could consider keeping Bernard on their team, but he should not be a starting option at this time.

Ravens | Bernard Pierce inactive today

Sun, 26 Oct 2014 08:47:46 -0700

Baltimore Ravens RB Bernard Pierce is inactive Sunday, Oct. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Justin Forsett ($5,800; 11.6% of your cap) remains a good RB2 on FantasyScore and in other PPR formats. Owen Daniels' (knee) absence aids Forsett in the passing game as well.

Ravens | Will continue to mix RBs

Thu, 16 Oct 2014 06:45:00 -0700

Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett has thrust himself into the lead running back role for the team. He is fourth in the NFL with 408 rushing yards and leads the league with 6.4 yards per carry. The team still wants to use RB Bernard Pierce as an important part of their running game.

Fantasy Tip: Forsett ($5,800; 11.6% of your cap) continues to be a solid play on FantasyScore. However, it's concerning that the team hasn't fully committed to him like many teams would with another back performing this well. Pierce ($5,200; 10.4%) is a flex option, but he comes with risk.

Ravens | Bernard Pierce expected to play

Fri, 03 Oct 2014 12:04:15 -0700

Baltimore Ravens RB Bernard Pierce (thigh) practiced in full Friday, Oct. 3, and is probable for Week 5 against the Indianapolis Colts.

Fantasy Tip: Pierce was active last week but didn't play, as Justin Forsett and Lorenzo Taliaferro performed well in his absence. However, with a full week of practice under Pierce's belt, we would expect him to see some work against the Colts. At $5,300 at FantasyScore, Pierce is a cheap sleeper option at running back.

Ravens | Bernard Pierce fully participates

Thu, 02 Oct 2014 13:37:24 -0700

Baltimore Ravens RB Bernard Pierce (thigh) participated fully in practice Thursday, Oct. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Pierce is a very risky play this week with RBs Justin Forsett and Lorenzo Taliaferro seeing the majority of the work from the backfield. It's best to stay away from Pierce for Week 5.

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.
