Running Backs: Ray Rice*, Bernard Pierce, Lorenzo Taliaferro, Justin Forsett, Kyle Juszczyk
No surprises here and no change from last week’s projections. Rice, Pierce, Taliaferro, and Juszczyk are all locks to make the final roster. Forsett is the only question mark, but we think it’s unlikely the team would cut ties. He has put the ball on the ground two games in a row, however, and needs to correct his fumbling problem quickly. Working in his favor is his prowess in both the running and passing game, where he has fared quite well.
Ray Rice* is suspended the first two games of the season and won’t count against the final roster until week 3. Forsett might lose his spot when Rice returns.
