Jaguars | Bernard Pierce could face suspension

Fri, 20 Mar 2015 10:27:04 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Bernard Pierce will face a suspension for violating the league's personal conduct policy with his DUI arrest this week. Pierce will be given a chance to compete for playing time with RBs Toby Gerhart, Denard Robinson and Storm Johnson in 2015. Pierce has struggled in the NFL since his rookie season in 2012, and he's mainly been hampered by a list of injuries including back, ankle, knee, shoulder, thigh, toe and head ailments. Pierce has a chance to be part of a three-man rotation, especially if the Jaguars use Gerhart more as an H-back.

Fantasy Tip: After averaging 4.9 yards per carry his rookie year, Pierce has averaged just 2.9 and 3.9 yards per carry in 2013 and 2014, respectively. Behind an inexperienced offensive line and quarterback in a three-man rotation, he definitely shouldn't interest fantasy owners in standard leagues in 2015.

Jaguars | Bernard Pierce claimed by Jags

Thu, 19 Mar 2015 13:33:36 -0700

Free-agent RB Bernard Pierce (Ravens) was claimed off waivers from the Baltimore Ravens by the Jacksonville Jaguars Thursday, March 19.

Fantasy Tip: Pierce was expected to take over as the lead back in Baltimore for Ray Rice in 2014, but that clearly didn't happen. He quickly fell down the depth chart and finished with just 93 carries for 366 yards and two touchdowns. He'll enter Jacksonville and battle for touches with Toby Gerhart and Denard Robinson. This backfield looks ugly, and it's probably smart to avoid it everwhere in fantasy leagues.

Ravens | Bernard Pierce released by Ravens

Wed, 18 Mar 2015 11:43:09 -0700

Baltimore Ravens RB Bernard Pierce was released Wednesday, March 18. Pierce was arrested for driving under the influence Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: With Pierce released, the Ravens likely will go with Justin Forsett and Lorenzo Taliaferro as their top two running backs next season. Forsett probably will be the starter and could be a No. 2 running back for fantasy owners. Taliaferro could be a later-round option as a handcuff to Forsett or depth at running back. Pierce may be able to find a backup job with another team, but he will not have much fantasy value in 2015.

Ravens | Bernard Pierce arrested for DUI

Wed, 18 Mar 2015 06:27:27 -0700

Baltimore Ravens RB Bernard Pierce was arrested for driving under the influence early Wednesday, March 18, according to Baltimore County police.

Fantasy Tip: The arrest could cost Pierce a game or two. He's little more than a RB5 or a handcuff to Justin Forsett.

Ravens | Fitzgerald Toussaint was backup

Tue, 23 Dec 2014 11:14:35 -0800

Baltimore Ravens rookie RB Fitzgerald Toussaint served as the backup to RB Justin Forsett in the team's Week 17 loss to the Houston Texans over RB Bernard Pierce. Toussaint relieved Forsett in the fourth quarter when he injured his ankle and ran four times for 11 yards and also caught two passes for 20 yards on five targets. Pass protection may be the reason why Pierce was overlooked.

Fantasy Tip: Depending on the health status of Forsett, Toussaint could see more work in the season finale against the Cleveland Browns. The matchup is a good one, unfortunately, Toussaint ($5,555) isn't worth much more than a desperation flex play because of his lack of experience.

Ravens | Bernard Pierce practices in full

Thu, 18 Dec 2014 14:15:28 -0800

Baltimore Ravens RB Bernard Pierce (back) practiced in full Thursday, Dec. 18, after being limited Wednesday, Dec. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Pierce ($3,000) has had a disappointing season in 2014, but he's looked fresh of late, and Lorenzo Taliaferro is out for the rest of the games. Pierce fits the mold of a nice sleeper play at FantasyScore this week as the complement to Justin Forsett in the backfield.

Ravens | Bernard Pierce is healthy

Sun, 26 Oct 2014 20:12:14 -0700

Baltimore Ravens RB Bernard Pierce was a healthy inactive in Week 8 against the Cincinnati Bengals. Head coach John Harbaugh explained Sunday, Oct. 27, that he felt others gave the team a better chance to win. "We're just doing what we try to do as far as our personnel and getting guys up that we felt gave us the best chance to win the game," Harbaugh said. "We were jammed up. We did what we thought we had to do, and it worked out because our other backs stayed healthy."

Fantasy Tip: With Pierce on the inactive list, rookie Lorenzo Taliaferro ran seven times for 27 yards and a pair of touchdowns while leading the team in receiving with 42 yards on two grabs. Justin Forsett led with 68 rushing yards on 17 carries, and he had three catches for 17 yards. It's bad news for Pierce and his fantasy appeal, as the duo of Forsett and Taliaferro didn't miss a beat.

Ravens | Ravens not moving Bernard Pierce

Sun, 26 Oct 2014 10:25:23 -0700

Baltimore Ravens RB Bernard Pierce is not on the trade block.

Fantasy Tip: Justin Forsett and Lorenzo Taliaferro have been playing well and are seeing most of the work at running back, which has hurt Pierce's fantasy value. Owners could consider keeping Bernard on their team, but he should not be a starting option at this time.

Ravens | Bernard Pierce inactive today

Sun, 26 Oct 2014 08:47:46 -0700

Baltimore Ravens RB Bernard Pierce is inactive Sunday, Oct. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Justin Forsett ($5,800; 11.6% of your cap) remains a good RB2 on FantasyScore and in other PPR formats. Owen Daniels' (knee) absence aids Forsett in the passing game as well.
