Ray Rice gives fantasy owners 109 total yards in win

Mitch Stringer-USA TODAY Sports

The Baltimore Ravens' feature back sprang to life on Sunday, posting his third 100-yard total of the season. We break down the fantasy implications.

Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice was called upon early and often during a game with snowy conditions on Sunday. Rice carried the ball 17 times for 67 yards, but thrived more in the receiving game.

Inclement weather put a damper on the team's ability to execute deep and intermediate passes. This meant Rice was called upon to execute screens and routes in the flats. Rice caught all five of his targets for 42 yards, and finished with over 100 total yards for the third time this season.

Fantasy Spin: It was an encouraging sign for Rice to capitalize despite snowy conditions and an anemic string of games prior. Though his 3.9 yards per carry average still leaves much to be desired, it was his second highest average in a game this season. Needless to say, it's been a disappointing year for Rice's owners, but as long as the team is committed to feeding him the rock, he presents value as a flex option.

Rice has his work cut out for him next week versus a Detroit Lions defense that had been stout all season long before allowing over 200 yards on the ground to LeSean McCoy. Owners can pen Rice in as a boom-or-bust flex for Week 15.
