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'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.

Baltimore Ravens rookie RB Lorenzo Taliaferro was arrested early Saturday, May 23, and charged with public intoxication and destruction of property after allegedly breaking a window in a taxi cab.
Fantasy Tip: With Ray Rice facing a possible suspension, Taliaferro may still make for a nice sleeper behind running back Bernard Pierce, who is coming back from an injury himself. This arrest throws some uncertainty into his future, however, so itís best to keep tabs on possible future discipline.
