2014 DRAFT GUIDE
Team Grade:
Baltimore Ravens
Quarterbacks: Running Backs:
Wide Receivers: Tight Ends:
Defense: Kickers:

Outlook

The Ravens had a really down year last season but still barely missed the playoffs, finishing at .500. They are better than that, though. The defense should perform better after a down year and the offense got a few more weapons this offense that should help. Baltimore has plenty of talent on the roster and a rebound should be expected. They have been a mainstay in the playoffs before last season. We still aren't sure they are a Super Bowl team once again but at least a playoff contender.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
Running back Bernard Pierce battled nagging injuries much of last season and never looked fully healthy most of the season, which led to down numbers for him. He is healthy now, though, and should be in the mix for plenty of work with Ray Rice slipping last season. Pierce could overtake Rice at some point. Either way, Pierce is going to get work in at least a timeshare at running back. He showed what he can do his rookie season, so expect much better production from him this year now that he is healthy.
FANTASY DUD
As mentioned, running back Ray Rice was a mess last season. And he had an offseason to forget this year. Things are just trending the wrong way for him. He also had a ton of work early in his career, which could be impacting him. Rice might do better than last season but that isn't saying much. He is a back seeing his fantasy value go the wrong way. His best days are behind him.
