Official Ray Rice is out for the Championship thread

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Ray Rice is not expected to play on Sunday against the Bengals with Baltimore already having clinched the AFC North division title.
Bernard Pierce will carry the load for the Ravens on Sunday, and fantasy owners that play through Week 17 need to adjust accordingly. Pierce should see upwards of 20 touches against Cincinnati. Anthony Allen is the No. 3 running back in Baltimore. This is the danger of having fantasy seasons that last past Week 16. Joe Flacco, Torrey Smith, and Anquan Boldin could see zero-to-limited action as well.

...and that's why you don't play in leagues that play the championship game on week 17.

i don't get these two-game championship leagues that force you to play into week 17 .. you ride the backs of 2 or 3 hot players all season to get where you are, then they are not even playing in your biggest game of the season ..

Yep, makes no sense. Start the playoffs a week early if you will need more than 2 weeks to complete them

I like a 2 week championship, but not if it goes into week 17

My championship ended last week but I would not hesitate to start Bernard Pierce. He has actually looked more effective In his limited snaps. I know that will receive sarcastic replies but I watched every Ravens game this year. Pierce can play...if he doesn't get another concussion

Edit: Just looked at who they are playing and Bengals look to be pretty tough against the run so obviously look at your other options regarding matchups. Just saying that Pierce isn't some bum sitting on the bench.

Another edit: report below saying Rice is active

wow, that makes the call even tougher .. i would probably start ridley just to play it safe, if it was me .. i don't see the ravens using rice a ton today, especially depending on the direction the game goes in .. although the ravens do still have a mathematical shot at the 3 seed, but no first round bye, obviously ..

yep, that makes the call much more difficult if you have some other good choices.

keep searching for something official one way or the other. Googling and getting totally conflicting reports.
