Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 15: Ray Rice is a risky option

Ray Rice has still been a ghost all year. Can fantasy owners expect him to turn it around against the Lions on Sunday?

The Baltimore Ravens simply can't run the ball this year. They had a lot of success in the air against the hapless Minnesota Vikings defense on Sunday, but

The Ravens get a Lions team that has been a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde team over the past month. Of course, Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy set a franchise record with his 217 rushing yards as part of Philly's 286-yard day on the ground. However, the Lions were arguably the best defense in stopping the run before that dud. They didn't allow a rushing TD to a running back since Week 5 and didn't even allow over 51 rushing yards to running backs from Week 7-13.

Fantasy impact: Rice and the Ravens rank dead last in the NFL with just 3.0 yards per carry and have been abysmal. Rice has been a far cry from his usual numbers and has topped 75 rushing yards just once in the entire season. Hopefully, there is a better option for fantasy owners heading into this week with Rice only has a flex in PPR in most formats.
