Ray Rice wants to let everyone know that his first Pro Bowl selection was no fluke.
Heading into his third season – months after attending the NFL All-Star game – Rice is looking to firmly establish himself among the league’s elite running backs.
“I still feel like I’m a guy that is underrated,” said Rice in a Monday-morning appearance on ESPN’s First Take. ”My plan is to go out there and prove it all over again, that this wasn’t just a one-year thing.”
Last year, Rice led the Ravens with 1,339 rushing yards and tallied 2,041 total yards, becoming only one of two players to surpass the 2,000-yard mark all campaign.
No one seems to be doubting Rice, at least fantasy-wise. At 4for4, He's rated the third-best RB option with an ADP of three - behind Chris Johnson and Adrian Peterson in both categories - and we project him to go over 2,000 total yards again this season.
