Ravens' Pierce, Taliaferro combine for 41 rushing yards Week 10

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/9/14) Ravens running backs Bernard Pierce and Lorenzo Taliaferro combined for 41 rushing yards during a 21-7 win Week 10 vs. Tennessee. Pierce had 31 rushing yards on eight carries, while Taliaferro added 10 rushing yards on three carries.

Starting running back Justin Forsett led the rushing attack Sunday with 112 yards and two touchdowns on 20 carries. Although, Forsett, Pierce and Taliferro combined for no catches.

The Ravens are on a bye Week 11 before returning to action Week 12 at New Orleans.

Ravens running backs show versatility

by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/3/14) The Ravens running game didn't stand a chance Week 9 at Pittsburgh, not with Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger throwing for six touchdown for a second straight game. Justin Forsett and Lorenzo Taliaferro split carries almost evenly, but because the Ravens were forced to pass for virtually the entire second half, they combined for just 16. Forsett had nine for 38 yards, and Taliaferro had seven for 21.

But what the two lacked as rushers they made up for as receivers. Forsett was actually the Ravens' leading receiver with 67 yards on five catches -- a skill he hadn't shown since averaging 4.6 catches in the Ravens' first five games. Taliaferro, though clearly more of a traditional runner, pitched in 34 yards on three catches.

In other words, the low rushing totals for Forsett and Taliaferro are nothing to worry about in Fantasy. Both still got theirs, just in a different form. And though Forsett may have ceded more touches to Taliaferro in this one, the distribution of playing time wasn't even close. Forsett played 73 percent of the Ravens' snaps and remains the preferred option of the two. Taliaferro played 23 percent and is still more of a handcuff option.

Ravens RB Lorenzo Taliaferro totals 55 yards in Week 9 loss

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/3/14) Ravens running back Lorenzo Taliaferro rushed for just 21 yards on seven carries while adding another 34 yards on three receptions in his team's 43-23 loss to the Steelers.

Taliaferro split carries almost evenly with starter Justin Forsett, though the rookie lost a fumble early in the second quarter and saw just one carry after the turnover as the Ravens fell behind by multiple scores by halftime. Taliaferro has been held to under 30 rushing yards in each of his last five games, but he's started to make an impact in the passing game, catching multiple passes in three of his last four. He'll face off with the Titans in Week 10.

Lorenzo Taliaferro the new vulture for Justin Forsett

by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/26/14) When the Ravens listed a perfectly healthy Bernard Pierce among their inactives for Week 8 at Cincinnati, it probably seemed like good news for Justin Forsett owners. Pierce had been a thorn in their sides, short-changing Forsett with a short touchdown run each of the last two weeks.

But Forsett wasn't the one to benefit from Pierce's absence. Lorenzo Taliaferro was, scoring not just one touchdown but two -- and both on runs of more than 5 yards.

Forsett was still the primary rusher, getting 17 carries to Taliaferro's seven, and he got a chance from the Bengals' 2-yard line in the first quarter. But when he failed with it, the Ravens seemed all the more inclined to go with Taliaferro inside the 10-yard line.

Taliaferro may be even more of a danger to Forsett than Pierce was. The Ravens trusted Pierce in short-yardage situations, but with an average of just 3.6 yards per carry, he wasn't a threat to break a long one. With Sunday's performance, Taliaferro is averaging 4.4 yards per carry, and again, neither of his touchdowns came at the goal line.

It doesn't mean you sit Forsett in Fantasy. He's been pretty reliable no matter who the Ravens have paired with him. But he's not as safe as he appeared to be at this time last week. And Taliaferro is worth adding on his own merit.

Ravens RB Lorenzo Taliaferro scores twice in Week 8 loss

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/26/14) Ravens running back Lorenzo Taliaferro rushed seven times for 27 yards and two touchdowns and added two catches for a team-high 42 receiving yards in his team's 27-24 loss to the Bengals in Week 8.

Taliaferro was able to take the ball up the middle on a first-and-goal from the 10-yard line to score his first touchdown late in the first quarter. His second score came on another first-and-goal in the fourth quarter, as he ran untouched on the left side for an eight-yard score. He had been held out of the end zone since scoring touchdowns in back-to-back games at the end of September but was a bigger part of the offense in Week 8 after Bernard Pierce was listed as a healthy inactive.

Taliaferro has rushed for 226 yards and four touchdowns on 51 carries while also catching four passes for 60 yards. He'll face the Steelers in Pittsburgh in Week 9.
