Ray Rice day to day, will be fantasy dice roll this week

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

Ray Rice is day to day with a hip flexor and is unlikely to practice this week. We break down the fantasy implications.

Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice is considered day to day with a hip flexor injury, according to coach John Harbaugh. He will not undergo an MRI, but Harbaugh doesn't expect him to practice this week.

Rice went down with the non-contact injury in Sunday's win over the Cleveland Browns. He ended the day with just 36 yards on 13 carries. Bernard Pierce finished the game in Rice's place.

Fantasy impact: Rice could end up being a game time decision for next week's tilt with the Houston Texans. Fantasy owners should keep a close eye on Baltimore's practice reports this week. Even if he's active, he may not get much playing time with the capable Pierce backing him up.

Savvy fantasy owners should have picked up Pierce as Rice's handcuff, and that investment could pay off earlier than expected. Pierce is worth starting as an RB2/Flex play this week, although his upside will be limited against Houston's strong defense.
