Camp Battles: Ravens running backs
With 592 attempts, Baltimore rushed the ball more than any other NFL team last year (few teams were even close -- third-place Minnesota racked up 519 carries). There isn't a back in the league who wouldn't love to be the featured rusher in the Ravens offense, and yet at the start of training camp there is no clear answer as to who will be the benefactor of all of those carries heading into the 2009 season.
Fantasy owners can only hope the answer is one of the three, and not a combination.
None of the three are capable of filling a spot in the starting lineup for fantasy owners, as each will get a portion of the offensive workload in Baltimore, but Rice will probably total more touches and thus more total fantasy points. As a mid-round grab (and a No. 3 or 4 back) Rice is an intriguing pick, especially in PPR leagues.
