According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, four teams, including the Colts and Saints, are looking into signing embattled RB Ray Rice. When asked who the other team's were, the source declined to speculate. (Source: Adam Schefter via Facebook
Fantasy Impact: Don't go out of your way to pick up Rice off the waiver wire, as Schefter also stated that Rice isn't "locked into playing this year". Rice could further muddle the backfield situation for a couple of team's down the stretch, and while its simply a guess, I speculate that the other teams interested are the Broncos and Falcons. This is interesting news to see reportedly widespread interest in Rice, but for fantasy purposes, would you really trust him to start a playoff match-up? Rice's situation is worth monitoring in the off-season.

The Baltimore Ravens terminated the contract of RB Ray Rice after a new video of his assault of then fiancé, now wife, Janay Palmer. (Source: ESPN
Fantasy Impact: The video shows the actual assault that took place inside an elevator in an Atlantic City hotel and casino. While it is unsurprising there was additional fallout from this new evidence, the severity of the action taken by the Ravens is a bit shocking. It is doubtful Rice will make a return with another team, at least in the immediate future, based on his horrendous actions caught on film.

Video has surfaced of Ray Rice knocking out his then-fiance' in an elevator. (Source: TMZ Sports
Fantasy Impact: Uh oh. As if the NFL hadn't already been under fire for it's leniency with domestic abuse in the Ray Rice case, now this? Rice has a legitimate chance of being cut under the public pressure the Ravens will now face. Stay away.

Ray Rice left Saturday's preseason game after just two carries. Rice was seen holding his shoulder leading us to believe it was a shoulder injury. X-rays would come back negative and Harbaugh told reporters it was just a shoulder bruise. (Source: BaltimoreRavens.com
Fantasy Impact: Anyone looking to draft Rice needs keep an eye on his health. After last year's dismal fantasy (and regular season) performance, people wondered if Rice was in a decline, or victim to injury and a poor O-line. Make sure to check up on his health before drafting him. His 7.6 YPC lets us believe the Ray Rice of old is back.

Ray Rice rushed for 17 yards on 3 carries in his preseason debut, while Bernard Pierce saw the majority of the action at RB.
Fantasy Impact: Rice will return from suspension in week 3 of the season and is a good bet to take over the starting job. Rice is not the same player he was years ago, and will share at least some of the load with Bernard Pierce this season in Gary Kubiak's new zone-running scheme.

Ray Rice is suspended for 2 games stemming from a physical altercation with his fiancée at Revel Casino in Atlantic City on February 15, 2014. Bernard Pierce will likely see the majority of the snaps at RB for both home games against Cincinnati and Pittsburgh.
Fantasy Impact: Coming off a shortened Week 2 due to the Ravens only Thursday night game of the season, Rice should reclaim the starting RB job as Pierce struggles against two run defenses rated in the top half of the league. Rice receives shorter than expected suspension and his Overall Ranking of 51 (RB23) in PPR leagues and Overall Ranking of 71 (RB30) in Standard leagues will improve before the season starts.
