Huddle Up: Rice will likely be day-to-day and his availability for the Ravens' third preseason game will be known more early in the week. Rice is currently being overvalued with an ADP of Round 5. Bernard Pierce is a much better option for fantasy owners this year with an ADP of Round 8.
Posted: 8/14/2014 6:56pm ET
Huddle Up: Pierce has much added fantasy value this summer, not only because he's in line to start the first two games of the season, but he's also the insurance policy in case the Rice of 2013 shows up after his return in Week 3.
Posted: 8/8/2014 4:20pm ET
Huddle Up: With his season-opening 2-game suspension and coming off his disastrous 2013 campaign, Rice has fallen down the ADP ranks as the 24th RB currently coming off the board, but the former fantasy stud isn't that far removed from his glory days and could provide a strong ROI if you can still snag him in the middle rounds of your draft.

Huddle Up: Ray Rice should thank his lucky stars the NFL is more concerned about performance enhancing drugs and DUIs than domestic violence. Bernard Pierce will get the bulk of the carries while Rice sits, and if Rice doesn't perform significantly better than he did last year he may return to a jobshare rather than the feature back workload he's been used to.

Huddle Up: Given the seriousness of the the charges here -- accompanied by a disturbing video -- and the more stringent punishments handed out recently for pot use and the like, the league's surprising leniency is being met with some harsh criticism on airwaves and social-media circles this morning. Regardless, the Ravens and Rice's fantasy owners are getting off easy as the RB will only miss 2 starts as he tries to rebound from his deeply disappointing 2013 showing.
Posted: 6/19/2014 7:50pm ET
Huddle Up: Hopefully for the sake of the Ravens and fantasy GMs, it will come sooner rather than later so everyone can adjust their plans accordingly.
Posted: 6/16/2014 10:39pm ET
Huddle Up: Rice had one of his worst seasons as a pro last year, and the prospects of a shortened season make Bernard Pierce a valuable fantasy commodity--not to mention dinging Rice's value as well.
Posted: 5/25/2014 8:17pm ET
Huddle Up: Yeah, the video of Rice dragging his unconscious wife out of the elevator looked as bad in the NFL offices and it did on your laptop, so expect Rice to play in fewer than 15 games for the first time since his rookie season of 2008.
Posted: 5/20/2014 6:59pm ET
Huddle Up: We'll see what the NFL discipline czars have in store for Rice, who already is facing a big hurdle in trying to bounce back from his deeply disappointing 2013 season (5-year lows with 981 yards from scrimmage and 4 total TDs).
Posted: 5/1/2014 11:38pm ET
Huddle Up: Obviously good legal news for Rice, who has had the public backing of the Ravens throughout this process.
Posted: 4/28/2014 11:26am ET
Huddle Up: Since the league is unlikely to take any action until this case runs its course in the courtroom, no news on a potential suspension for Rice.
Posted: 3/31/2014 3:51pm ET
Huddle Up: Does this mean Palmer doesn't have to testify against her now-husband in the assault case? It's one of many offseason questions Rice will face stemming from the incident that led to the charges. Expect the league to let the legal system take the lead, so it's likely Rice won't miss any time this season.
Posted: 3/27/2014 5:40pm ET
Huddle Up: Rice's attorney continues to refute the charges and insists the case will be resolved. In the meantime, the Ravens say they are sticking by the veteran RB, but that decision may be taken out of their hands by the courts.
Posted: 3/17/2014 11:53am ET
Huddle Up: Rice has plenty of issues to grapple with this offseason, from his off-the-field issues to his struggles last season. If the lighter playing weight alleviates the hip issues, that's certainly a step in the right direction.
Posted: 2/19/2014 8:21pm ET
Huddle Up: Ya think? The league offices can't be happy with Rice allegedly delivering an uppercut to his fiance, knocking her out. Standard procedure would be for the league to let the legal system run its course, then mete out its own justice; expect things to play out that way here as well.
Posted: 2/15/2014 8:48pm ET
Huddle Up: Good that Kubiak wants to lean on Rice; bad that Rice was awful in 2013, and bad that Pierce is going to cut into his carries. That tips the scales away from expecting a bounceback 2014 campaign for Rice.
Posted: 2/3/2014 8:19pm ET
Huddle Up: Rice's 2013 season was a hugh disappointment, both fantasy and otherwise. He'll be a value next season, but a high-mileage back with hip issues is hardly a sure thing. Best to keep tabs on what he's able to do (and not do) this offseason when the Ravens resume team activities to gauge if he's worth the risk.
Posted: 1/23/2014 1:43pm ET
Huddle Up: Yeah, Rice had an abysmal season as he failed to top 1,000 rushing yards, 1,500 total yards and score at least 6 TDs for the first time since his rookie season of 2008, but the Ravens acknowledge he played injured and aren't just going to flat-out bail on him, especially with the cap hit it sounds like they would take.
Posted: 1/10/2014 12:57pm ET
Huddle Up: Those who spent a first-round pick on Rice this year won't be as quick to forgive, but unless the Ravens bring in someone else this offseason you can expect a similar Rice/Bernard Pierce backfield split in Baltimore.
Posted: 12/31/2013 6:36pm ET
Huddle Up: Has Rice really hit a wall at age 27? It looked like it for most of the 2013 season as he had only 1 100-yard rushing game and 4 total TDs, but a nagging hip injury and various other ailments likely played a role in his down year. He doesn't figure to be drafted as a RB1 next summer, but you can be sure some owner will take a high-round gamble on Rice given his years of productivity.
Posted: 12/26/2013 10:35pm ET
Huddle Up: Rice should play in the Ravens' season finale, but how much fantasy production you can expect out of the RB given his nagging ailments and sub-par season remains in question.
Posted: 12/20/2013 6:43pm ET
Huddle Up: Rice, who missed Wednesday's workouts and has been limited in the team's 2 practices since, should play Sunday but don't expect his already disappointing season to get any better with yet another injury thrown into the mix.
Posted: 12/19/2013 10:40pm ET
Huddle Up: Rice was able to get back on the practice field after missing Wednesday's workouts entirely, and there's no real reason to doubt his availability for Sunday's date with the Pats at this point. Still, keep attuned over the next few days to make sure.
Posted: 11/29/2013 12:06am ET
Huddle Up: Those fantasy owners hoping the holiday home game and a decent matchup against a shaky Pittsburgh run defense would bring a reprieve from Rice's struggles were left disappointed once again as the RB failed to eclipse 75 total yards for the 10th time in 12 games and couldn't find the end zone for the 6th time in 7 contests. Definitely look for other options in the fantasy postseason.
Posted: 11/11/2013 8:11pm ET
Huddle Up: Something obviously is amiss with Rice, whose high rushing game is 74 yards and only has had 3 TDs this season, and his fantasy owners have been forced to explore other options. No. 2 back Bernard Pierce had 10 touches to Rice's 24 in Week 10, but it sounds like those totals could be on the move.
Posted: 11/7/2013 1:08pm ET
Huddle Up: Rice has left fantasy owners in the lurch with his subpar season. Maybe he hasn't lost a step, but the hip injury combined with poor line play and improved defenses have conspired to relegate Rice to the bench in many fantasy leagues--and to the waiver wire in others.
Posted: 11/6/2013 12:55am ET
Huddle Up: Rice has struggled all season, and things seem to be getting worse instead of better for the first-round fantasy pick. In the Ravens' 3 contests since Rice gained 92 total yards and scored a pair of TDs Week 5 vs. the Dolphins, the RB has rushed for 96 yards on 40 carries and hasn't found the end zone. Up next are the Bengals who allow the 6th-fewest points to opposing RBs.
Posted: 10/8/2013 12:43pm ET
Huddle Up: It looks like the angst might be over for Rice's fantasy owners as the RB recorded his first 100-yard total game and first multiple-TD contest in Miami.
Posted: 10/2/2013 1:17pm ET
Huddle Up: Perhaps the acquisition of Eugene Monroe to play left tackle will free up Rice for more receiving work. He was certainly under-used last week against Buffalo.
Posted: 9/27/2013 2:56pm ET
Huddle Up: Rice has a great match-up against the Bills' banged up rush defense. However, even if Rice does play, expect Bernard Pierce to see a lot of touches this week as well. Rice owners should be prepared for him to miss another game, while Pierce is a flex option with Rice in the lineup and a strong RB2 if he doesn't play.
Posted: 9/25/2013 5:54pm ET
Huddle Up: This dings Bernard Pierce's value, in case you were planning on starting him. But the Ravens could limit Rice, and Pierce has looked better than Rice thus far.
Posted: 9/23/2013 5:01pm ET
Huddle Up: This is good news for his fantasy owners, but don't celebrate just yet. Monitor his situation throughout the week.
Posted: 9/21/2013 1:16pm ET
Huddle Up: Pierce is a borderline RB1 while Rice is out. He has a tough match-up this week against the Texans but Pierce should easily rack up 20 touches. Get Pierce in your lineup while Rice is recovering from his hip injury.
Posted: 9/20/2013 4:54pm ET
Huddle Up: Despite being held out of practice all week, Rice was listed as questionable, but that changed Friday when he was officially downgraded to doubtful. Coach John Harbaugh says Rice will be a game-time decision, but signs point toward Bernard Pierce getting his first career start.
Posted: 9/19/2013 4:44pm ET
Huddle Up: No real revelations here as coach John Harbaugh has indicated that Rice could -- and likely will -- sit out practice all week and still have a good shot at playing in Week 3. Backup Bernard Pierce, however, still figures to get plenty of touches whether Rice plays or not.
Posted: 9/18/2013 4:21pm ET
Huddle Up: It's going to be hard to trust Ray Rice this week, especially if he keeps missing practice. Keep an eye on him, but have your alternatives at the ready.
Posted: 9/16/2013 5:22pm ET
Huddle Up: This is infinitely better news than what many feared when he went down with an injury on Sunday. Breathe a sigh of relief.
Posted: 9/15/2013 5:27pm ET
Huddle Up: The injury looked much worse when it first happened. Hopefully the hip flexor isn't too serious, but it looks like Rice and his fantasy owners dodged the dreaded torn ACL.
Posted: 9/6/2013 2:08pm ET
Huddle Up: Going beyond his basic rushing numbers, Rice was more involved than it appears, scoring on a 1-yard run in the second quarter and leading the team with 8 receptions, albeit for only 35 yards. Bottom line: He was below par in standard -scoring leagues, particularly for a consensus first-round pick, but still scored in double digits. In PPR leagues, his 8 grabs saved the night.
