RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

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 though Pierce worked his way into a bigger role thanks to Rice's struggles, he saw his own YPC plummet from 4.9 the year before to 2.9. With Ray Rice no longer with the Ravens, Pierce, Justin Forsett and Lorenzo Taliaferro now head the team's rushing attack.

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.
