Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice is listed as questionable heading into the team's Week 17 matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals. Rice is dealing with a thigh injury that also had him questionable heading into Baltimore's Week 16 game against the New England Patriots.
Rice did play in that game as the starter, but he struggled. He looked slow off the snap and struggled to pick up yardage against the New England defense. Rice had just 11 carries on the day for 40 yards and caught two passes for 23 yards. He didn't have a touchdown and the Patriots dominated that game.
Fantasy Impact: It's been a down year for Rice, to be sure. He's carried the ball 208 times for 645 yards and just four touchdowns. Rice has had 100-plus yards in only one game this season. The last time these two teams met, he averaged 1.7 yards per carry against the Bengals. That said, he seems likely to play. If you lack better options, start him, but not with confidence.
