News: The Ravens placed rookie running back Bobby Rainey on injured reserve Tuesday because of a knee injury.
Analysis: Rainey was inactive for the three games he was on the 53-man roster this season. He was just roster depth and had no Fantasy appeal.
News: The Ravens promoted running back Bobby Rainey to the active roster Tuesday.
Analysis: Rainey spent the first six weeks of the season on the practice squad. He will be just roster depth for Baltimore and has no Fantasy appeal at this time.
News: The Ravens announced Monday they waived running back Bobby Rainey and promoted running back Anthony Allen from the practice squad.
Analysis: Rainey was third on the running back depth chart behind Ray Rice and Bernard Pierce. The undrafted free agent likely wasn't going to see much playing time this season, so continue to leave him off Fantasy rosters.
News: Baltimore running back Bobby Rainey saw some snaps with the first team offense during Thursday's preseason game against the Jaguars. Rainey had a quiet night rushing but made some big plays as a pass catcher as Tyrod Taylor threw a short pass which Rainey turned into a 48-yard touchdown early in the fourth quarter. he finished with two carries for seven yards and three catches for 73 yards and a touchdown.
Analysis: Rainey, an undrafted free agent out of Western Kentucky University, is making a strong case for a roster spot in Baltimore as he continues to impress. He touched the ball five times in the first half with the starters as he could work his way up through the depth chart. Rainey is not a worthwhile option at this time, but if he somehow works his way and becomes the backup running back for the Ravens, he could gain some Fantasy value as a handcuff option.
