RB Ray Rice NFL Fantasy Football Player Rankings
2009 Fantasy Year In Review: Ray Rice was our top sleeper coming into last season as he won the starting gig and had a solid offensive line to run behind. I knew Rice was going to be a great pass catching runner, and he was probably going to rack up over 1,500 total yards.
Little did I know he would go on to gain over 2,000 total yards with over 1,300 yards rushing and over 700 yards receiving. What impressed me the most was that he scored eight total touchdowns on the season. That number won’t blow you away but when you consider he had zero in his rookie season it was a big concern.
2010 NFL Fantasy Football Player Rankings: I was hoping the Ravens would part ways with Willis McGahee this offseason and give Rice more opportunities at the goal line. Unfortunately, McGahee had a very productive year in 2009 and the team picked up his 3.6 million dollar option.
With McGahee around (fourteen touchdowns last year) Rice may not improve much on his eight touchdowns from last season. Still, Rice has a great team around him, and he will be a very productive player for your fantasy team as a first round pick. In PPR leagues, Rice has even more value because of all the receptions he gains.
However, he may see a drop in pass catches because Joe Flacco has a better receiving core this year. That is something to keep in mind as we head closer to draft day.
- Terrific Pass Catcher
- Game Breaker
- Great Offensive Line And Team
- Willis McGahee Hurts His Touchdown Totals
- Has Only Produced One Good Season
