2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
With Ricky Williams riding off into the sunset, the Ravens used a 3rd round pick to acquire Pierce. Despite having good size at 6’0” and 218 pounds, he too often avoids contact and he can’t stay healthy. So, will practicing against Ray Lewis and the boys on the Ravens D make Pierce want to avoid contact more or less? Interesting question. Pierce will battle Anthony Allen for the opportunity to back up Ray Rice and Pierce figures to win that battle given his superior upside. However, there’s no chance of either player approaching the amount of touches (121) that Williams had last year.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Jordan Cameron active, Bernard Pierce Out     -- Sun Sep 21 11:35 am --

Ravens without starting running back
Jordan Cameron will in fact be active today. Bernard Pierce is inactive for the Ravens (Jason LaCanfora via Twitter)

FF Today's Take: Cameron can be inserted into fantasy lineups with the understanding that his shoulder could easily be re-aggravated. With Pierce out, Justin Forsett will handle more of the rushing load with Lorenzo Taliaferro working in a backup role.
Ravens terminate contract of Ray Rice     -- Mon Sep 8 2:30 pm --

NFL suspends him indefinitely after TMZ releases casino video
The Baltimore Ravens terminated RB Ray Rice's contract on Monday, hours after TMZ released a video showing him punching his then-fiancee in the face in an Atlantic City hotel elevator in February. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: Prior to Monday morning, the public had only had access to part of the casino video in which Rice was dragging his then-fiancee out of the elevator after the February incident. The new video really left the Ravens with no choice but to release the three-time Pro Bowler. From a football perspective, Baltimore will move forward with some combination of Bernard Pierce (benched in Week 1), Justin Forsett and Lorenzo Taliaferro.
Pierce has been best back in Ravens' camp     -- Thu Aug 7 3:05 pm --

Expects to be featured through first two weeks
Bernard Pierce has been the best running back in camp. He played in a similar running scheme in college, and he has had the best transition to Kubiak's stretch, zone-blocking runs. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: With Ray Rice sitting out two weeks due to suspension, Pierce is going to have a grand opportunity to make some noise. At worst, he should be able to be the Ben Tate to Rice's Arian Foster in new OC Gary Kubiak's backfield. However, if he shows well against Cincinnati and Pittsburgh in Weeks 1 and 2, he has a realistic shot at overtaking Rice for lead-back duties. As a result, Pierce is a high-upside RB4.
Ray Rice to be suspended two games     -- Thu Jul 24 10:15 am --

NFL yet to confirm suspension
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell will hand down a two-game suspension to Ray Rice for violating the league’s personal conduct policy, sources confirmed. The league has not officially announced the suspension. (Baltimore Sun)

FF Today's Take: Rice will miss games against division foes Cincinnati and Pittsburgh. Bernard Pierce (shoulder) will likely replace Rice in the starting lineup the first two weeks of the season. It appears that being a first-time offender helped Rice keep his suspension to a minimum. Rice's ADP of RB28, round six, should begin to rise slightly on this news.
