Ravens RB Ray Rice wants to be used as a receiver more

No matter that Ray Rice @RayRice27 has the most receptions among running backs since the start of the 2008 season and that he had the most receptions of any AFC back last year. He wants more.
"Now that guys know that I'm a threat out of the backfield, I got to use my hands a little more," Rice said Sunday, via the Baltimore Sun. "I get pushed a lot coming out of the backfield, and that's a sign of respect, but if I can get my hands and get out on pass routes and continue to get open for Joe Flacco."
Rice's 61 catches last season were his least since his rookie year.

Fantasy Analysis:

The Ravens don't have a proven second wide receiver right now, so maybe Rice picks up the slack there, along with tight ends Dennis Pitta and Ed Dickson. Rice is going to get his 65-75 receptions and be one of the best players in fantasy football again.

With the exit of Bolden, Flacco will lean heavy on his all-pro spark plug !!! I like Rice even more this year than last. Very safe top 5 pick.
