Bobby Rainey signed to Ravens 53-man roster

Bobby Rainey has been signed to the 53-man active roster ahead of the Ravens Week 6 game against Chicago.

Fantasy Impact

Rainey has been added to supplement the absence of Terrance West, but don't expect him to take any sizable role. He was with the Ravens during the preseason but didn't make the final roster so he is somewhat familiar with the offense. He has been fairly productive in his career but hasn't been able to find a stable role with any team and shouldn't be on your roster unless another Baltimore back were to get hurt.

Bobby Rainey signs with Ravens

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting free agent running back Bobby Rainey signed with the Baltimore Ravens Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

After Baltimore learned that Kenneth Dixon would be sidelined for the entire 2017 season Tuesday with a torn meniscus, the all of a sudden running back-needy Ravens signed Rainey on Wednesday. The journeyman rusher played the 2016 season with the Giants and accumulated 216 total yards on 37 touches in 15 games. Currently, Rainey holds minimal fantasy value, but it could rise if Terrance West, Buck Allen or Danny Woodhead fall to injury.

Bobby Rainey has a goose egg on Week 9 stat sheet

Bobby Rainey did not accumulate any stats for the Giants in their Week 9 win over the Eagles. Once the Giants' starting back when Rashad Jennings and Shane Vereen were hurt, Rainey has become the third back on the depth chart thanks to Jennings' return and rookie Paul Perkins' emergence. Rainey totaled five snaps, all on passing plays.

Fantasy Impact

Rainey has seen his snap count trickle in the past four games from 28 to 27 to 12 and now just five. Rainey primarily plays special teams and no longer looks to be featured as a weapon. It would take an injury or a long stretch of poor play from Jennings and Perkins to make him fantasy relevant once again.

Bobby Rainey totals negative yardage while being sparsely used

Bobby Rainey didn't find many snaps in the Giants' 17-10 win over the Rams despite being the Giants' primary third down back. That appears to be changing. He received one carry for one yard and caught one ball for negative two yards.

Fantasy Impact

A grand total of -1 yards was all Bobby Rainey could manage against an aggressive Rams' defense. Rainey had a few encouraging performances after taking over for Shane Vereen once the latter went on IR. But with Paul Perkins' usage going up it's fair to imagine Rainey will be shelved, much like Orleans Darkwa. If he's still on your roster, replace him with Perkins or someone with significantly greater upside; his only value is if injuries occur.

Bobby Rainey invisible in 27-23 win over Ravens

Bobby Rainey, acting as the Giants' primary third down back, only managed to gain 29 total yards. That included 13 rushing yards on six carries (2.2 ypc) and two receptions for 16 yards. Rainey was targeted in the passing game a total of three times.

Fantasy Impact

Rainey followed up two promising performances while replacing Shane Vereen with a largely ineffective game against the Ravens. Rashad Jennings had more receptions than Rainey while Paul Perkins tied him with receptions and receiving yards. Its unknown how long Rainey will keep the reigns of the third down job with the rookie nipping at his heels. He ought to have it next week against Los Angeles but the Giants could look to go with the higher potential player after their Week 8 bye.
