Harbaugh: I'm very confident in Bernard Pierce
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

With Ray Rice suspended for the first two games of the season, the Ravens have to figure out who will start at running back in his absence, reports ESPN.

The top choice to fill in for Rice is Bernard Pierce. He was limited all offseason after having shoulder surgery, but he looked to be in good shape as the Ravens opened training camp this week. 

"I'm very confident in Bernard. I've always liked Bernard," coach John Harbaugh said. "He's a heck of a player. He’s worked very hard, he’s 217 pounds, [and] he's in the best shape of his life. He looked good out here the last couple of days. We'll know more by Tuesday once we get the pads on and seeing him move with the pads on and how the shoulder holds up -- that'll be important."

Outside of Pierce, the Ravens have Justin Forsett and rookie Lorenzo Taliaferro, but Pierce is the likely starter with Rice out.

"I have a lot of confidence in all of our guys," Harbaugh said.

Justin Forsett could be a part of Ravens run game
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Justin Forsett has experience running in new Ravens offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak's running scheme, so his new team could have some plans for him thanks to his familiarity with his old coach. Per the Baltimore Sun, Forsett could work as a third-down back and potentially be part of the base offense while starter Ray Rice serves a suspension to begin the season. 

"The zone scheme is all about repetition," Forsett said. "Even though I've been in it for most of my career, you still got to get the reps in. My whole career, I've been one of those guys that switched with the zone run scheme. I've been able to run the outside and inside zone pretty well. A third-down guy most of my career, being able to understand the blitz protections and being able to pick up guys and run routes out of the backfield and out wide."

Forsett suffered a stress fracture and a turf toe injury last season and had just 31 yards on six carries over nine games.

Ravens awaiting word on Ray Rice suspension
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Ravens are still waiting to hear how long running back Ray Rice will be unavailable to begin the season with a possible suspension, reports ESPN.

The report says Rice is expected to receive a multi-game suspension for allegedly striking his fiancée unconscious in February. The report suggests a suspension of two to four games for Rice would follow the league's recent track record with first-time offenders. 

If Rice is going to miss a major chunk of the season, the Ravens would give Bernard Pierce, Justin Forsett and Lorenzo Taliaferro more snaps this summer, especially later in the preseason. If Rice is only going to be suspended for a couple of games, the Ravens' rotation at running back may not change significantly.

Ravens expecting to use RB by committee?
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

As a suspension looms for running back Ray Rice, the Baltimore Sun believes the Ravens will use a running back by committee approach even when Rice is eligible to play. 

Bernard Pierce figures to be the first man up to replace Rice and take on a nice amount of work but he has yet to be cleared following offseason shoulder surgery and has struggled in two seasons in the pros. Justin Forsett is a veteran familiar with the Ravens' new running scheme but he's played sparingly over his six-year career. Rookie Lorenzo Taliaferro has some talent but still hasn't learned the offense and might not have the best skill-set to play outside of situational roles. 

The Sun believes the Ravens will need "all hands on deck" to not only replace Rice, but pair with him when he's active.

Justin Forsett, not Ray Rice, took first-team reps
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

In a move that might have been meant to send a message more than anything else, Justin Forsett handled most of the first-team reps for the Ravens during an OTA practice on Friday ahead of Ray Rice. And according to ESPN, Forsett looked extremely fast and showed off good hands. 

It's expected that Forsett's work with the starters was just to let Rice know that his off-field issues have been noticed and will be considered by the coaching staff. However, Forsett could be in line for some work early on this season if Rice has to serve a suspension.
