Bernard Pierce, RB, Baltimore Ravens Player Profile Height/Weight: 6-0/228 Birthdate: 5/10/1990 School: Temple 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 does get banged up, Rice has played through all of them, not missing a game in the past 4 years. I think that Pierce established himself enough, that he should get a little more work in 2013 while Rice “stays fresh”. In the end, this will probably be a good thing for Rice as well and keep him from wearing down. While I love Pierce, I don’t intend on taking him early in drafts. I don’t realistically think he has a shot at playing more snaps. He is a great talent and could be a fantasy star down the road but till his situation changes, handcuff is his title.
