Roster spot in jeapordy
Ravens running back Bernard Pierce was arrested in Towson early Wednesday morning and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, police said.
Ravens team spokesman Chad Steele told The Baltimore Sun: "We are aware of the situation and learning more about it. We take these matters seriously."(Baltimore Sun)
FF Today's Take:Pierce's fantasy value took a hit last season as he was playing behind Justin Forsett and Fitzgerald Toussaint most of the year. Ever since the Ray Rice incident, the Ravens have been strict with off-field conduct. DB Victor Hampton was arrested earlier this off-season on DWI charges and was released. Pierce could suffer the same fate.

RB had interest from ATL, WAS and OAK
The Ravens have re-signed veteran running back Justin Forsett to three-year contract that averages about $3 million per year, according to NFL sources.
Forsett also drew interest from the Atlanta Falcons, Washington Redskins, Indianapolis Colts and Oakland Raiders(Baltimore Sun)
FF Today's Take:This is a good fit for Forsett and his fantasy value. The Ravens are committed to the run and Forsett had his best season as a pro last season averaging 5.4 yards per carry while scoring eight touchdowns. He's not an ideal fit as a workhorse running back but if he ends up in that role, he could once again produce high-end RB2, low-end RB1 value.
