2013 Outlook: Sleeper (undervalued)

Last updated on Aug-13-2013 by Ben Standig

Update (8-13): Pierce suffered a left knee sprain in the Ravens' preseason opener, but the rising second-year runner was on the field for Monday's practice. He is easily one of the top fantasy handcuffs, a potential flex option if he receives 7-10 touches per game and a top-15 RB option if Ray Rice misses time.

Pierce lived up to his rugged reputation and sleeper tag with a rock solid rookie campaign, averaging 4.9 yards and 108 regular season carries. He did even better during the postseason (5.2 ypc), including 103 yards in the wildcard round win over Indianapolis. Obviously Ray Rice remains the lead back, but seeing as Pierce had 22 touches in the AFC Championship game and Super Bowl combined, he could have flex or bye week value in 2013. For now, consider him a high-end handcuff in the R3/4 range.

9.08 Draft TV - I love Bernard Pierce! With Jim Caldwell as offensive coordinator, Pierce was a flex play. As an RB4? I'm in love. I think he snipes TDs with very little red zone threats in Baltimore.

8.12 FantasyTaz - Pierce is getting a lot of attention and with good reason. He looked really good with his limited chances last year and should get even more this year. Rice has averaged over 375 touches in each of his last 4 seasons, and the team will do what it is has to try and lessen that load. Pierce wont get 15 touches a game unless Rice goes down, but if he can average 12 touches a game and see an increase in receptions he is good value here. Of course nothing is guaranteed, but as my RB4, there really is not much risk with the pick.
