Ray Rice Injury Update: Toe problem won't be an issue for fantasy owners

Rob Carr

Ray Rice is ready for the Steelers. Should your expectations be high?

Ray Rice (toe) was a full participant in practice all week and is listed as probable to face the Steelers on Sunday. He will start and should see his usual workload.

Rice is surprisingly just 14th in rushing yards on the season with 657 yards on 144 rushing attempts, which is still good for a nice 4.6 yards-per-carry average. Rice has also added 284 yards in the passing game to cement his value as an elite RB1.

Fantasy Impact: Rice is going to be just fine and his owners should not be worried about his toe injury. He stubbed his toe and this is not the dreaded turf toe that is two of the scariest words in the fantasy football lexicon.

While the Steelers do boast a nice defense, Rice has been able to get 117.5 yards from scrimmage in his last two games against them. He has to start in even a one-man league.
