Description: Former Ravens running back Ray Rice has been reinstated by the NFL.
Insight: He's free to sign with any team that will have him. It was just 2012 that Rice rushed for 1,143 yards and nine touchdowns, but he was a disaster in 2013. We aren't sure any teams will sign him for the last five weeks of this season ... maybe 2015.
 
10/19/2014 10:27:00 AM
Description: The final decision of whether running back Ray Rice will be reinstated this season will come in mid-November according to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports.
Insight: That means Rice could sign with another team and become fantasy relevant just in time for the fantasy playoff run. The running back continues to stress that he did not lie to Roger Goodell when interviewed about the elevator incident and should, at the maximum, be suspended for six games as a first-time offender. La Confora speculates the Colts and Patriots may be interested in Rice, but The Sports Network believes the Panthers are a great fit if their running back cannot get healthy.
 
9/8/2014 2:33:00 PM
Description: The Baltimore Ravens announced they are releasing running back Ray Rice.
Insight: In the wake of the TMZ elevator video, the public have been calling for Rice's head. Our guess, he never plays another down in the NFL. This could also have huge implications for Roger Goodell's tenure as commissioner. As for fantasy, Bernard Pierce is the starter in the Ravens backfield, but Justin Forsett took over the role after Pierce's fumbling issue in Week 1. We would like to see how Week 2 on Thursday goes, but based on Pierce's performances last season and in Week 1, we guess Forsett is the best option out of the Raven backfield.
 
9/8/2014 1:57:00 PM
Description: Yahoo Sports Dan Wetzel reports on Twitter that the Ravens might release Ray Rice after TMZ released the video of him knocking out his then fiance and dragging her out of an elevator.
Insight: There does not seem to be much of an alternative at this point. There is a lot of blame to go around in this situation, but NFL players along with fans are calling for his head. Terrance Knighton of the Denver Broncos tweeted that he should be banned from the NFL. Rice is eligible to return in Week 3, but we will see if that actually happens.
 
8/18/2014 2:08:00 PM
Description: Ravens running back Ray Rice (shoulder) was back at practice Monday.
Insight: Rice's X-rays came back negative and he had told Brent Harris of Comcast Sportsnet that he's "fine." This is confirmation. Rice is suspended the first two games of the year, so even if he was injured, he would have plenty of time to recover.
 
8/16/2014 8:29:00 PM
Description: Ravens running back Ray Rice went to the locker room to get his shoulder looked at during Saturday's preseason game.
Insight: Rice's X-rays came back negative and he told Brent Harris of Comcast Sportsnet that he's "fine." Rice is suspended the first two games of the year, which will give Bernard Pierce a chance to prove he deserves a larger role when Rice returns.
 
7/24/2014 11:11:00 AM
Description: Ravens running back Ray Rice has been suspended for the first two games of the season.
Insight: The suspension is actually a little shorter than expected. Still, it means backup Bernard Pierce will be fantasy worthy for the first two games of the season and if he plays well who knows what could happen down the road.
 
5/23/2014 7:24:00 PM
Description: According to ESPN's Chris Mortensen, the Ravens are preparing to be without running back Ray Rice for at least the first three games of the season. Rice is probably facing a suspension for his offseason assault arrest.
Insight: Rice held a press conference Friday to apologize for his behavior. The suspension knocks Rice down a peg while lifting Bernard Pierce's value.
 
5/22/2014 8:57:00 PM
Description: ESPN's Chris Mortenson expects Baltimore running back Ray Rice to face some sort of suspension for his arrest earlier this offseason.
Insight: This further clouds what was already a puzzling fantasy situation. If anything, the looming suspension helps Bernard Pierce's value heading into the season. Of course, that's assuming Pierce is fully recovered from offseason rotator cuff surgery.
 
5/21/2014 10:12:00 AM
Description: Ravens running back Ray Rice has agreed to participate in a pretrial-intervention program. As long as he completes the program, Rice will not have to face trial for allegedly assaulting his wife earlier this offseason. SOURCE: ESPN
Insight: The arrest still goes on Rice's permanent record but without the conviction. Rice is coming off a dismal season (3.1 yards per carry) and it's possible he could also be facing a suspension. Once a consensus first-rounder, Rice's fantasy stock has never been lower.
 
5/1/2014 9:35:00 PM
Description: Baltimore halfback Ray Rice pleaded not guilty to third-degree aggravated assault charges on Thursday. SOURCE: Jamison Hensley, ESPN
Insight: It doesn't appear Rice will face jail time, though it's still possible the league could suspend him. The charges stem from an incident in Atlantic City this past February.
 
3/27/2014 6:02:00 PM
Description: According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Ravens running back Ray Rice has been indicted on one count of aggravated assault for allegedly assaulting his fiancee in February.
Insight: Rice was initially charged with simple assault but that has been dropped. The new charge carries a potential term of 3-5 years in prison.
 
2/19/2014 7:13:00 PM
Description: Video has surfaced of Ravens running back Ray Rice dragging his fiancee, who appears to be unconscious, out of an elevator at an Atlantic City casino. SOURCE: TMZ
Insight: Rice, who is now facing domestic violence charges, has been accused of hitting his fiancee and knocking her unconscious. The three-time Pro Bowler is due in court next Tuesday. It could be a while before this ugly situation is resolved.
 
2/16/2014 7:44:00 PM
Description: According to the Baltimore Sun, Ravens running back Ray Rice was arrested over the weekend after an alleged physical altercation with a woman at a casino in Atlantic City.
Insight: Rice's attorney said that Rice was charged and released after an alleged "very minor physical altercation." The Ravens RB is coming off a miserable season in which he played through a hip injury and rushed for just 660 yards and four TDs in 15 games. He established career lows with 3.1 yards per carry and 5.5 yards per catch.
 
12/29/2013 11:56:00 AM
Description: Despite being listed as questionable with a thigh injury, Baltimore halfback Ray Rice is active and starting in Week 17.
Insight: Rice has been a roll of the dice this season with just four touchdowns and 645 rushing yards in 14 games this season. He ran into brick walls the last time he faced the Bengals, finishing with just 30 yards on 18 carries. Rice figures to be a flex or low level RB2 in Week 17.
 
11/17/2013 6:55:00 PM
Description: Ravens running back Ray Rice broke loose for 131 yards and a touchdown on 25 carries Sunday at Chicago.
Insight: Rice's long gain of 47 was more yards than he had in seven of his eight games this season. While it was a positive sign for Rice owners, it's too early to say if Rice is fully back to must-start status because the Bears have one of the worst run defenses in the NFL. Rice will have to prove himself again in Week 12 against the stout Jets run defense before he regains our trust.
 
Cold11/11/2013 7:31:00 PM
Description: Ravens coach John Harbaugh said he will go with a hot-hand approach at the running back position, according to baltimoreravens.com. "Both of those guys are going to get a large number of carries, and I think whichever guy is playing better should get more carries as we go forward," Harbaugh said.
Insight: But how will Harbaugh choose if both Ray Rice and Bernard Pierce are rushing for under 3.0 yards per carry like they have all season? Rice is down to 2.5 ypc on 289 yards after another abysmal effort (18 carries, 30 rushing yards, six catches, 26 receiving yards) Sunday against the Bengals. Harbaugh said he thinks Rice's hip flexor strain and shoddy run blocking are behind his dropoff this season.
 
Cold11/3/2013 7:47:00 PM
Description: Ravens running back Ray Rice had just 17 rushing yards on 11 carries and 21 receiving yards on three catches Sunday at Cleveland.
Insight: The turnaround doesn't seem to be coming for Rice. In seven games, he has just 259 rushing yards on 97 carries (2.7 ypc), 135 receiving yards on 27 catches and three touchdowns. Bernard Pierce has averaged 2.7 ypc as well, so it's likely the Ravens just cannot run block rather than Rice being done as a useful NFL player.
 
10/6/2013 6:48:00 PM
Description: Ravens coach John Harbaugh wasn't lying when he said he wanted to get Ray Rice more involved in the offense in Week 5. Rice touched the football 33 times.
Insight: Rice had 27 carries for 74 yards and six catches for 28 while also crossing the goal line twice. It was the game Rice's fantasy owners were looking for after four disappointing and injury-plagued games.
 
10/2/2013 9:07:00 PM
Description: Ravens coach John Harbaugh has vowed to get running back Ray Rice more involved in the offense after barely using him against the Bills in Week 4. SOURCE: NFL.com
Insight: Inexplicably, the Ravens completely abandoned the run in the second half as Rice didn't receive his first second half carry until four minutes were remaining in the fourth quarter. The result was Baltimore's second loss of the season. Rice, who is now two weeks removed from a hip flexor injury, should be a decent fantasy play against the Dolphins in Week 5. Of course, that's assuming Harbaugh is actually telling the truth and this isn't just a ploy to get Miami off track.
