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 frontrunner, with RBs Justin Forsett , Lorenzo Taliaferro, Cierre Wood and Fitzgerald Toussaint in the mix.
Huddle Up: Aside from Pierce and Forsett, the other 3 backs are unknown quantities with a combined 3 career NFL carries so don't dig too deep looking for a sleeper candidate.

Houston Texans RB Cierre Wood has apparently won a roster spot after the team cut RB Dennis Johnson. He gobbled up 107 rushing yards in the preseason finale against the Dallas Cowboys to push Johnson out the door.
Huddle Up: As one of the NFL's top rushing teams, the Texans' RBs hold extended interest for fantasy GMs, but you have to get past Arian Foster, Ben Tate and Deji Karim just to get down to Wood on the depth chart.
