Bench Ray Rice
Despite a breakout performance last week vs the Chicago Bears, Rice is still on pace to rush for less than 600 yards, and the Ravens are on track to compile one of the worst rushing averages in NFL history.
Rice and the Ravens will face the New York Jets on Sunday a week after he racked up 131 yards on 25 carries in a Week 9 loss at Chicago. He also scored his first touchdown since Week 5.
Rice finally had a 100-yard performance, which was his first this season, but the Jets run defense is no joke.
They lead the league in rush yards per attempt allowed (2.9), yards per game (73.2) and have allowed just six rushing TDs this year. He’s fool’s gold this week and don’t bother playing him unless it’s a 3-RB league or one with two flex spots.
