Ray Rice rushed for 32 yards on 12 carries in Week 13 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, adding another 38 yards on six receptions. Bernard Pierce led the Baltimore Ravens backfield with 35 yards on nine carries.
After a breakout game against the Chicago Bears, Rice has finished in the 30-yard range in back-to-back weeks. His 38 yards receiving set a season-high.
Fantasy impact: Hopefully you pawned Rice off on another owner after he eclipsed the 100-yard mark in Week 11. He's been a disappointment for the majority of 2013, and that doesn't look like it will change anytime soon.
Rice's hip still may not be 100 percent, but the cause of his lackluster play isn't quite known. Next week he faces a Miami Dolphins defense that ranks No. 26 in the league against the run. Rice is at least flex-worthy for that matchup. Pierce simply remains as a handcuff more than anything else.
