Bernard Pierce, RB, Baltimore Ravens
FANTASY FOOTBALL ANALYSIS
Bernard Pierce, in my mind, has taken away the title of being the best backup in the NFL from Ben Tate. Pierce was so good in his first year as the change-of-pace back in Baltimore that I believe if the Ravens could get out from Ray Rice’s contract, they would! Maybe that’s a little bit of a stretch but have you seen what they are doing to that roster?
Pierce played well all season during his rookie year but broke out huge toward the end of 2012 and into the playoffs. In weeks 16 and 17 he totaled 212 yards on 36 carries for an average of 5.9 YPC. And then to top that, he totaled over 200 yards rushing during the playoffs capped off with a Super Bowl win.
Pierce should be owned in all leagues as the most coveted handcuff in the game but don’t kid yourself. He’s playing behind one of the best in Ray Rice. And Rice doesn’t get hurt often, when he doe...

According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, while the Baltimore Ravens are still looking to sign free agent linebacker Elvis Dumervil, they could end up settling for Dwight Freeney. Ideally, the Ravens would like to land recently released Elvis Dumervil, and he is their top target of the available free agents, according to league sources. But the team remains in a tight cap bind...
Reports are out that the Baltimore Ravens and former Broncos DE Elvis Dumervil's new agents are in 'negotiations' to bring Elvis to Baltimore. But let's take a step back and note that 'negotiating' can mean one of two things.
The Baltimore Ravens are seemingly hemorrhaging star players at the moment.

BALTIMORE (AP) -- Marcus Spears likes the way he fits into the Baltimore Ravens defense, and the veteran run-stopper admires the team's ability to be a consistent winner.
So it didn't take a whole lot of negotiations to convince the former Dallas Cowboys starter to begin the next phase of his NFL career with the reigning Super Bowl champions.
"It was an easy process...
Jacoby Jones made his debut on Dancing With the Stars last night, and he wasted no time busting out his former teammate Ray Lewis’ famous ‘squirrel dance.’
Jones’ dance partner Karina Smirnoff told him that she definitely wanted to implement the dance into their routine.
“Oh yeah, we’re totally putting that in,” Smirnoff told the Ravens wide receiver and returner.
Safety Ed Reed remains unsigned, and it appears his decision
on where to play next season and beyond has come down to two teams, the
Baltimore Ravens and Houston Texans.
The Ravens are reportedly still in play for Reed. However,
their real interest in re-signing the veteran is unknown, as is their ability
to fit him into their already tight budget. Baltimore has had to watch several...

Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun reports that a league source with knowledge of the situation mentioned that the Texans offer to free agent S Ed Reed was “low enough that a fast deal was unrealistic.”

The Ravens are the most recent Super Bowl champions and a lot of their fans and NFL journalists are complaining and reporting that they might not play their first regular season game at home next year. Well you know what, stop complaining.

La Canfora mentions that Baltimore is still in the market for pass-rusher, but only at the “right price.” League sources have informed him that Elvis Dumervil remains the Ravens’ “top target.”
