|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.

|Ravens | Bernard Pierce leaves game|
Sat, 23 Aug 2014 17:15:51 -0700
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.

|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 | Pending Ray Rice suspension may force RBBC|
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.

|Ravens | Lorenzo Taliaferro arrested|
Tue, 27 May 2014 10:49:06 -0700
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.
