FANTASY FOOTBALL BREAKING NEWS: BERNARD PIERCE TO "BALANCE" OUT CARRIES MORE WITH RAY RICE IN 2013

According to a Ravens official closely associated with the offense, second-year running back Bernard Pierce will likely "balance" out the 2013 distribution of carries between he and starter Ray Rice.  It was no secret that Pierce opened up the eyes of the Ravens coaching staff down the stretch last season when got more than a few carries in place of Rice even into the playoffs.  With both Pierce and Rice having different running styles, offensive coordinator Jim Caldwell is expected to give both guys a decent amount of work.

Analysis:  This is not the news you want to hear if you already are a Rice owner or plan to be.  Pierce no doubt did some nice things last season and it is no secret that the Ravens want to lessen the load on the small but stout Rice.  What this does is knock Rice down a few pegs in the fantasy football rankings out of the running back spot, with Jamaal Charles, LeSean McCoy, and Marshawn Lynch all passing him by if this issue comes to fruition this season.
