Ravens expected to rest Ray Rice-- Sun Dec 30 10:10 am --
Bernard Pierce to start
The Ravens are going to play it safe today in the regular-season finale instead of play for the No. 3 seed.
Baltimore is expected to rest running back Ray Rice against the Bengals on Sunday, according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. This means rookie Bernard Pierce, who had his first 100-yard rushing game last Sunday, will make his first career start. You will likely hear of more starters for the Ravens not playing as it gets closer to the 1 p.m. kickoff. (ESPN)
FF Today's Take:Week 17 fantasy football can be tricky and here's a perfect example. Rice should be taken out of lineups as well as Torrey Smith and Anquan Boldin. Bernard Pierce becomes a RB2 against a solid Benglas run defense.
