Ray Rice's value in 2011?

Posted on: July 14, 2011 11:17 pm
All points lead to Rice having a bigger year in 2011. The rumor mil seems to declaire that willis Mcgahee will not be a raven in 2011. And the presece of Mcgahee is what kept Rice to finish only in the top 10 of fantasy Rbs.  Since Mcgahee got the bulk of GoalLine carries.  But Even if Mcgahee is no longer a raven will Rice really see an increse in Tds and be a top 5 RB?  The ravens have another option to fill the roll of goalline back with Leron McClain.  McClain who is traditionally a fullback also has halfback skills.  In 2008 McClain was moved from Full back to halback scoreing 10 TDs.  While Rice is clearly the better back McClain will have lots of appeal for the ravens coaching staff with his size to use him in Goaline and red zone situations.  While Rice is still a vialbe fantasy option his stock really might not be as high as many belive.  He is still a first round back but he might not finish above the top 10 again in 2011

Ray Rice's value in 2011?

I agree that Rice is a good RB, I had him last year on my Fantasy team, and 1 the championship. My concern with Rice is his health, I do not think he can last thru the season. The Ravens “O” line is suspect. With-out another good RB to share some of the carries, Rice will not make it. They must signed someone who can start right now! I think McCain will give the Ravens, the boost they need in the running game.
