Ravens could move to hot-hand backfield
Monday, November 11, 2013, 6:34pm
It's now possible the Ravens could use a hot-hand backfield between Rice and Bernard Pierce. Rice has yet to break 100 yards this season. In his last four games Rice has 58 carries for 126 yards and no TDs. That comes out to just 2.17 yards a rush. He's had a little more value in PPR leagues and in that same frame has 16 catches for 89 yards.

But especially prior to the game against the Steelers, he clearly wasn’t the same explosive, elusive and dynamic player that he has been for Baltimore the past several years.
Rice says he's feeling better and is ready to do some damage - as he put it. He and Bernard Pierce have each only averaged 2.8 yards a carry this year, with some of that blame on the offensive line. But the team feels the line played better against the Steelers leading up to last week's bye. This week, the Ravens will play the Browns.
Ravens planning to get Ray Rice more involved

"We need to get Ray involved in every single way," Harbaugh explained Wednesday. "Passing game, run game, every single way. It's definitely important for us, we want to do that every week, and obviously we did not do a good job of that on Sunday."
Rice has a decent schedule (MIA, GB, PIT) before his Week 8 bye, so he has a chance to turn things around quickly if he starts to see a heavy workload again. Bernard Pierce is dealing with a calf strain, but Rice's hip no longer seems to be an issue, as he isn't on the team's injury report this week.
