Baltimore Ravens running back Bernard Pierce (thigh) participated in practice all week on a limited basis and is listed as questionable against the Packers in Week 6. Pierce is dealing with the same thigh issue that he played through last week and is expected to play through the injury again.
Fantasy Implications: As one of the better handcuff options, Pierce is still a low-upside play with Ray Rice starting. Clearly not 100-percent healthy, fantasy owners should expect around 10 carries for Pierce. His two touchdowns on the year came when Rice was injured. Owners hoping he can salvage some value by striking pay dirt can likely do better in touchdown-heavy leagues as well.
Starting running back Ray Rice is a weekly RB1 and this holds true against Green Bay. Wide receiver Torrey Smith is currently playing the best ball of his young career. He has 27 receptions for 556 yards and one touchdown on the year. His 20.6 YPC is out of this world. Smith had a total of 15 touchdowns in his first two seasons, so owners can reasonably expect his scores to pick up again.
