Who is more valuable in Baltimore, Joe Flacco or Ray Rice? Fantasy RB Rankings

The Ravens won the Super Bowl with Joe Flacco at the helm last year.  I have been down on Flacco over the years, but I have to give him credit.  In the offseason he landed a huge contract, great for him.  Now what?  Boldin is gone, Pitta is gone, who's he going to throw to each week?  Smith?  Sure he has skills but he needs help.

The bottom line is that the Ravens are still a run first team.

Here are the top 5 RB, plus a bonus to keep an eye on:

Doug Martin - Young, healthy and on a team that wants/needs to run.
Adrian Peterson - He's a stud and he's not going away, but he's starting to slow down.
Marshawn Lynch - The Hawks like to run and he can break them anytime.  
Jamaal Charles - He has a new coach and threat of a passing game, this will be a good year.
Ray Rice - Flacco may have a big contract but they have no one to catch the ball.  Look for Rice to continue to put up numbers.

Reggie Bush has shown some flashing in his career and will be the feature back in Detroit.  The Lions cannot run the ball but they excel at throwing the dump off to the RB.  Look for Stafford to target CJ downfield and when he's in triple coverage, they'll dump to Bush.  Expect Reggie to see 10 targets a game, minimum in the passing attack.  This could be huge in PPR.

Good Luck!
