Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice rushed twelve times for 56 yards in the Week 15 win over the Detroit Lions on Monday Night Football. Rice didn't find the end zone but he did average 4.7 yards per carry. He was targeted once in the passing game for eight yards. Going into the week, Rice had 185 carries for 549 yards and four touchdowns while averaging 3.0 yards per carry. He averages about 21 receiving yards per game.

Fantasy impact: Rice isn't a top tier running back in fantasy anymore and fantasy owners have grown used to his lack of production this year. Let's face it, if you own him you are already using better options and plugging him in on a plug in play. But, the Lions are good against the run and the Ravens do face the New England Patriots in Week 16. They are giving up the thirteenth most fantasy points to running backs.
