Ravens | Ray Rice to start seeing snaps decrease during preseason

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.

Ravens | Bernard Pierce shining in training camp

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.
