Look at the Ravens backfield for Week 5
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Making sense of the Ravens backfield is going to be a chore for the next few weeks, especially since we assume Bernard Pierce will return to the field at some point in Week 5 against the Colts. How should Fantasy owners view Justin Forsett and Lorenzo Taliaferro heading into this weekend's matchup?

Dave Richard and Jamey Eisenberg are in agreement that Justin Forsett is the guy to own and start this weekend, with both ranking him among the top-21 for running backs in Week 5. Dave is higher on Taliaferro than Jamey, ranking him 24th, just behind Forsett; Jamey has him at 31.

Neither has Pierce ranked this week, as his role is a total mystery. Pierce was active but didn't see the field in Week 4, and we aren't sure how much he is expected to play Sunday. Even if you are desperate, there have to be better options on your roster with just two teams on bye.

Prioritizing running backs on the waiver wire
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The running back position has been a tough one to pin down for Fantasy owners this season, with so many big names struggling -- if they aren't out of action entirely. With this in mind, it is more important than ever to hit on your waiver-wire pickups. Jamey Eisenberg's top waiver-wire targets at the running back position are as follows:

The Vikings' Jerick McKinnon, The Ravens' Justin Forsett and Lorenzo Taliaferro, the Browns' Isaiah Crowell and the Texans' Alfred Blue. Additionally, Andre Williams of the Giants, Darrin Reaves of the Panthers and Denard Robinson of the Jaguars are mentioned as possible options worth targeting.

If you need a roster spot, consider dropping Adrian Peterson, DeAngelo Williams and Darren McFadden this week.

Still hard to make sense of Ravens backfield
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Justin Forsett and Lorenzo Taliaferro put together productive Fantasy games yet again for the Ravens Sunday against the Panthers. In fact, they played so well, it might be time to wonder whether there will be room for Bernard Pierce to play when he gets back to full health.

Pierce was healthy enough to suit up in Week 4, but did not see the field. Taliaferro and Forsett made sure the team didn't miss him, as they combined for 124 yards on 29 carries with two touchdowns. Forsett led the way with 66 yards, and added 31 more through the air, while Taliaferro rushed for 58 yards on 15 carries.

At this point, Forsett looks like the best Fantasy option in this backfield, though of course, that is subject to change if Pierce can get back to full health. The future outlook of this trio is still very much in doubt, to the point that there isn't a single player you can still definitely pencil into your lineup on a weekly basis.

Justin Forsett, Lorenzo Taliaferro pace rushing attack Week 4
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Even though Bernard Pierce (thigh) returned to action Week 4 vs. Carolina, Ravens running backs Justin Forsett and Lorenzo Taliaferro paced the rushing attack in a 38-10 win.

Forsett totaled 66 rushing yards and one touchdown on 14 carries, while Taliaferro added 58 rushing yards and one touchdown on 15 carries. Pierce did not play despite being active.

Forsett gave Baltimore a 14-7 lead with an 11-yard rushing touchdown with 5:22 left in the second quarter. Forsett did most of his damage before halftime, totaling 61 rushing yards on eight carries. He also finished the game with three catches for 31 yards.

Taliaferro had a 1-yard rushing touchdown in the fourth quarter, which gave Baltimore a 35-10 lead. 

Forsett's longest carry went for 21 yards, while Taliaferro's long carry of the afternoon went 23 yards. The Ravens are back in action Week 5 at Indianapolis.

If you need a last-minute Brandon Marshall replacement...
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

What is a Fantasy owner to do if Brandon Marshall's lingering ankle injury forces the Bears to sit him down in Week 4?

Luckily, the Bears play at 1:00 pm EST, so we will know if Marshall is inactive by 11:30 am, giving you plenty of time to shuffle your roster.However, if you don't have any capable replacements available on your bench -- remember, six teams are on bye this week -- here are some guys you may be able to snag in free agency at the last minute to fill in for Marshall, all of whom are listed among the top-50 at their positions by Dave Richard and Jamey Eisenberg:

Jaguars wide receiver Allen Robinson (42 percent owned), Raiders wide receiver James Jones (68 percent), Jets wide receiver Jeremy Kerley (29 percent), Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans (66 percent), or Vikings wide receiver Greg Jennings (53 percent).

If you have Marshall slotted into the flex spot, consider running backs Jerick McKinnon (19 percent) of the Vikings, Justin Forsett (63 percent) of the Ravens, Jacquizz Rodgers (19 percent) of the Falcons, Jonathan Grimes (13 percent) of the Texans, or Dexter McCluster (19 percent) of the Titans
