Fantasy Football 2012 Rankings: Baltimore Ravens Running Back Ray Rice
Good news for owners looking forward to the fantasy football 2012 season–Ray Rice will enter training camp a happy camper after the Baltimore Ravens gave him a new five-year deal before the start of training camp.
It’s difficult for any running back to top what Rice has accomplished over the last three seasons with the running back as the former Rutgers star has recorded 5,885 yards from the line of scrimmage and 29 touchdowns since the 2009 season. In fact, 2011 was the best year of Rice’s four-year career with the Ravens after recording 2,068 yards from the line of scrimmage (1,364 rushing yards and 704 receiving yards) and 15 total touchdowns.
Just like Arian Foster and LeSean McCoy, Rice is almost just as dangerous in the passing game as he is on the ground after recording 76 catches in 2011. He may be one of the smaller running backs in the league, but that actually works to Rice’s advantage as it makes it more difficult for defenders to tackles him.
With the type of numbers he posts, Rice will most likely be off the board by the time the fourth pick comes around in just about all fantasy leagues. Rice is the type of running back that seems to get better and better each season with more experience–which has owners anxious to see what type of numbers he produces in 2012.
As long as he stays healthy–Rice could be leading plenty of fantasy teams to the championship and make a strong case to be considered one of the top running backs in the league this season.
