Gio was a bust last week and Ravens aren't a good matchup but he's at home and he normally doesn't have bad back to back weeks.
T-Rich could be limited or out but either way he's a great Flex play and borderline RB2 with a good matchup.

Forget about last week in Indianapolis, Gio should have a better game this week at home vs the Ravens.

Bernard has a tough matchup against the Ravens 3rd ranked fantasy running back defense, but I still think you have to start him this week.
The Steelers are just 17th against fantasy running backs, Bradshaw should be a RB2 play again this week.
