2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Entering 2013, Pierce looked like an up-and-coming back, an aggressive runner with high-end speed who could serve as an effective complement to Ray Rice. But things didn't work out that way Ė even tho...

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

After a full week of practice, Pierce is presumably healthy enough to log some action Sunday against the Colts, but with Justin Forsett and Lorenzo Taliaferro also in the team's running back mix, Pierce is not a high-percentage play until he reestablishes a role in the Ravens' backfield.
Pierce (thigh) practiced fully Wednesday, the Baltimore Sun reports.

Pierce (thigh) said after Sunday's game that he was held out as a precaution to avoid further aggravating his injury, CSN Baltimore's Bo Smolka reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The Ravens may have just activated Pierce to serve as an emergency replacement, but it's still hard for fantasy owners to have any confidence in his role, after watching Justin Forsett and Lorenzo Taliaferro combine for 124 yards and a pair of touchdowns on 29 carries. The duo has been very effective in Pierce's absence, and Baltimore's running back situation is among the most fluid in the league. Pierce did have a team-high 22 carries for 96 yards in a Week 2 win over the Steelers, but both Forsett and Taliaferro have looked better this season. While Forsett is locked in as the top back for passing downs, Pierce could perhaps return to some kind of early-down role in Week 5 against the Colts.
Pierce (thigh) did not receive a single carry nor a target in Sunday's 38-10 rout of the Panthers.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

After missing this past Sunday's game in Cleveland, Pierce appears on track to suit up Sunday against the Panthers, but a backfield time-share could potentially be on tap in Week 4 after Lorenzo Taliaferro and Justin Forsett had productive efforts in Pierce's Week 3 absence.
Pierce, who missed this past Sunday's game with a strained quad, was able to practice Wednesday, the Baltimore Sun reports.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

In 20 games through Baltimore's Super Bowl run, Pierce averaged an impressive 5.0 YPC spelling Ray Rice. Pierce stayed healthy throughout the season despite his aggressive running style and displayed the burst and power to be an effective lead back should Rice get hurt. Of course, Rice has not missed a single game since his rookie year. It's also possible that at 6-0, 218, the bigger Pierce could steal some of the goal-line work, but Rice converted 8-of-18 carries from inside the 10 last year.

2012

The Ravens spent the 84th pick in the draft on Pierce, who ran for 1,481 yards and 27 touchdowns during his junior year of college. He has good balance and a nose for the end zone but lacks skills as a receiver and isnít overly quick. Baltimore hopes he can replace Ricky Williams as the teamís backup, and while that job wonít entail much if Ray Rice stays healthy, it could have plenty of potential if Rice were to go down. Pierce is an intriguing late round flier.
