Free-agent RB Ray Rice (Ravens) released an extreme training video Tuesday, Sept. 13, showing him working out at a Connecticut gym. He was wearing a weighted vest and oxygen-deprivation mask, as well as showing his vertical leap and agility. He has not played in an NFL game since the 2013 season, but some believe there is a "growing sense" the 29-year-old will get a shot to return this season. He vowed to donate every game check this season to programs focusing on education and prevention of domestic violence.
Fantasy Tip: Rice might very well get a chance to return and show what he can do, but fantasy owners need not bother with him until he gets another chance, knocks off the rust and proves he can play at a high level again. He might not be fantasy relevant until 2017, even if he gets a chance to come back this year.
