Ingram, Dobbins, Edwards & Hill: Outlook for Ravens RBs


Recommended Posts

worked out well for the rice owners, only missing a game vs. a tough run defense..

didn't realize limited practice all week means he's gonna get jammed in and get a full workload and have a monster game sunday.

for how he went down for a non contact injury to only miss one game, is defintely a best case scenario.. add to fact bills run defense isnt very good he might not need a full work load to put up quality numbers this week.

Best quote from this article Forsett managed 11 yards on five carries in one forgettable game. Buck Allen has nearly as many yards receiving (19) as he does rushing (20). Terrance West has scored

I'm going to assume JK gets some good burn this week with Lamar not being able to practice for a while. The passing game always needs more practice reps than the run game.

I thought Hill had a nice audition yesterday. I added him in a couple deeper leagues, mostly in hopes of an off-season trade. He's 2 years from free agency though, so if he's not traded I probably won

But, maybe you should realize that back to back to back practices, albeit limited, is great news for Rice owners. Even if he didn't play AT ALL this weekend, the fact that he is practicing is music to the ears of his owners.

The season has 13 more weeks left, rook.

You took all that from someone simply mentioning its good news he only missed one game?

of course. i'd bet on him having a lousy game this week with a minimal workload IF he even plays...so, how is it already determined that it's good news that he missed only one game? he's the one making assumptions. let's see him get back on the field and regain his fantasy value this week like he's predicting first.

Ray Rice (hip, questionable) was noncommittal Friday when asked his Week 4 status.

After a limited work week, Rice is shaping up as a true game-time decision whose status likely won't be determined until a pre-game workout. "I pushed myself to the limit," said Rice. "I had no setbacks. The biggest thing is your leg getting tired. The week went as expected. It did feel good and barring no setbacks I could be out there Sunday." "Could" is less forthright than "should" or "will." Stay with us into Sunday morning. If Rice is scratched against the Bills, workhorse-capable backup Bernard Pierce will be a borderline RB1 start in a cake matchup.

I hope Rice sits out one more week. I'd rather be comfortable starting Pierce over Rice

Me too. I'm comfortable with rolling with whoever is starting. I just hate waiting on late Sunday Morning GTDs. So annoying. I have better things to do than check my phone every 5 minutes as the game approaches.

Ray Rice (questionable, hip) confirmed Friday he will be a full-blown game-time decision for Week 4 at Buffalo.

Rice said the limited practice week went "as expected," but he's clearly still not 100 percent. Whether he plays Sunday will be "dependent on how he feels during warmups," as relayed by beat writer Matt Zenitz of the Carroll County Times. Coach John Harbaugh told reporters Friday he's "hopeful" Rice will play, but it sounds like the Ravens are giving serious thought to holding him out for another game. This was initially expected to be a 2-3 week injury.
This isn't even remotely surprising. I'm betting Rice will sit for one more week, conveniently boosting Pierce's value and giving his owners one more week to move him.

What could Pierce be moved for, realisitically? Everyone knows it's either this week or next and Rice takes over his old starting gig. Is there enough left over carries for Pierce to be anything more than a desperation flex against poor teams? (assuming Rice's good health)

My post assumes that you only own Pierce obviously. I think he can help push package deals through with Rice owners but not much more than that.

As for whether or not he can hold stand alone flex value, I'm sure he can but it will obviously be very match-up dependent and subsequently rather risky. He was getting RZ carries before Rice went down so it will be interesting to see if that continues once Rice comes back.

Reread what I wrote. You replied that I "was alluding to this very week". I never said anything about this week or missing one week. You responded to someone else's words but included my quote.Tighten your game up, Slick. Your "common sense" is overwhelming us all.

Jeebus...figures Rice would be out against the best matchup he'll have all year. And why would Pierce owners necessarily want to sell? He's getting at least 40% of a timeshare (probably) & even got a TD from the 5 yd line in week 2 before rice went out. It's clearly no longer a slam dunk Rice will dominate RZ or even GL touches. Totally baseless: i also have the feeling Rice is gonna deal with nagging injuries all year. They had a long season last year & while young I terms of the general population, he's not getting any younger in NFL RB terms

FWIW, Bloom tweeted a few minutes ago that he still has Pierce at RB20 ahead of MJD and Powell. I have them both, but I think I'll only start Rice. I don't want to bench Joique for Pierce. Not a bad situation to start two top 20 ranked backs though. Just putting all your eggs in one basket. good luck!

With 3 slots, would you start Bell, Bush, and Rice (benching Pierce)? I'm completely stumped.

That means Bloom believes he's still going to receive a relevant work load regardless. I really like MJD this week and Powell is a lock for 20+ touches as well. Starting Pierce over them at this point is ballsy IMO.

I have both Pierce and Rice and I am having a hard time sitting Pierce. When they both played it seemed like Pierce was getting close to splitting series. I think he will get 50% at least and he is healthier. My question is whether there are enough points in this game vs Buffalo to start both. I don't think there is because BA offense has been so anemic. I think you have to guess which one will score.

Well, I just put Ray into my starting lineup, so the rest of you had better take him out of yours. I'm gambling on him doing damage w/ about 12-15 touches, because I just can't see him getting more than that, especially as Pierce was getting more looks anyway; just hoping they give him any touches inside the 10 today instead of Pierce. My alternatives were either Pierre Thomas or Ridley, so not exactly too difficult to roll the dice w/ Ray, IMO.

Man, it's like you guys have a copy of my roster with you. I have Rice, Pierce, Powell and MJD and I think it might literally be a coin flip. Leaning toward Rice/Powell even though I think Pierce is the safer play. Damnit.

I have Rice/Pierce and Powell. Going with Powell for sure. Could start both Rice and Pierce (with one as flex) but just not sure that offense can score that many times even with injury riddled Bill's D.

Worst case scenario for owners that had Pierce handcuffed to Rice, in my opinion. Now which one do you play? I'd probably lean Pierce myself, but don't find myself in that situation in any leagues.

The nightmare is Rice plays and can't finish the same. At least you know for a fact Pierce will be involved in come level. Problem is Ray gets the goal line carries.

I agree. Powell is locked in. The decision for me is Rice/Pierce.

I don't think that's a lock, is it? Pierce got a 5 yd TD week 2 before Ray was injured...I know, not GL, but still...
