Will start with Rice suspended, but not necessarily a shoe-in vs a tough defensive front.

Bush has looked very good in the preseason, highlighted by an 86-yard touchdown run. Bell should lead the team in rushes, but Bush has flex appeal as a receiver.
Pierce will be the featured back in Ray Rice's absence, running the ball against last year's 3rd ranked fantasy running back defense.
