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. (Source: ESPN)

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.

After seeing Rice drag his girlfriend out of an elevator unconscious, it's hard to imagine a scenario where we draft him. But he does have a chance to bounce back in 2014. Still only 27 his value may be too great to pass up.
The Football Girl | Aug 19th
I'm cautiously optimistic he'll bounce back, though not to lofty levels of the past.
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru | Aug 19th
Sleepy 2014 in terms of stats. He does present PPR upside, but with Pierce still recovering you can expect a bounce back year for Rice. He won't miss too many games so he can be drafted as long as you have two other solid RBs.

Without a 2-game suspension, he'd be just ahead of Rashad Jennings.

Rice isn't the same back anymore. Perhaps he returns with a huge year, perhaps not.
Fantasy Football Maniax | Aug 19th
If the Ravens can improve their offensive line, I think Rice could bounce back in 2014. He is only 27 years old and has only 1,470 career carries, so overuse and age should not be a concern at this point in his career. He is also down to 205 lb. after playing last season at 215 lb. Fantasy owners received a major break with Rice being suspended only two games. DeMarco Murray, Adrian Peterson and Reggie Bush were all Top 11 running backs that played only 14 games last year.

Will miss the first 2 games of the season & will have to earn his starting gig back.
Legion Report | Aug 16th
Rice escapes with a 2 game suspension this year as he comes off a dismal 2013 season where he netted only 660 Rushing Yards and 4 TDs. In 2013, Rice tallied 58 Receptions for 321 Receiving Yards and 0 TDs. He is a much more valuable PPR asset than that in Standard Scoring Leagues. Consider Rice a RB3 in 2014.

Would be ranked higher if not for possible suspension. Ray Rice should be a solid RB2 on a per game basis due to his heavy involvement in the passing game

Arrested in February after a domestic assault incident in an Atlantic City casino, Ravens running back Ray Rice will be suspended for the first two games of the NFL season, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Even though this is his first violation of the league's personal-conduct policy, Rice is getting off easier than anyone would have expected. Rice's two-game suspension means he will miss ga...

The Baltimore Ravens got great news today, as the NFL handed down a relatively minor two-game suspension to running back Ray Rice for beating his wife. Rice was expected to get a suspension more in the four-to-six game area, which had previously prompted fantasy football experts to drop him down their rankings for 2014. Bernard Pierce became a hot commodity as Rice’s early season replacement...
