Ray Rice's fantasy value holds up after ankle sprain on Monday

Ray Rice suffers a mild ankle sprain on Monday - USA TODAY Sports

Ray Rice sprained his ankle in Monday's practice. We break down the fantasy implications.

Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice left Monday's practice with an ankle sprain, according to head coach Jim Harbaugh.

The injury is not considered serious. Rice left under his own power with a trainer and this news should not impact his regular season stats. Rice was second among running backs with 62 receptions and finished with 1,143 rushing yards and 10 total TDs last season.

Fantasy impact: He's fine, but the Ravens offense is certainly not. They have already lost Dennis Pitta for the season with a hip dislocation and Ed Dickson has a tear in his hamstring. Those two tight ends being out coupled with Anquan Boldin heading to San Francisco give Joe Flacco slim pickings on short routes. Rice is a skilled pass catcher and he has a good chance to at least match his 61-catch season. Bernard Pierce is pushing for more work and is having an eye-catching offseason, but Rice should still be viewed as a first-round pick -- especially in PPR leagues.
