Baltimore Ravens Highest and Lowest Rated Players Week Seventeen
By Brett Foote
Lowest Rated Offensive Players: Owen Daniels (-3.1), John Urschel (-1.4), Bernard Pierce (-0.6), Marlon Brown (-0.6), Fitzgerald Toussaint (-0.4)
Daniels caught some passes this week and had a huge 39 yard gain that put the offense in the red zone. But he did a terrible job in both run and pass blocking, hence his position at the top of the bad list this week. Urschel likewise struggled to run block at right guard and was called for a penalty.
Pierce did what he does every week – run into a wall of defenders and fall down. Why the coaching staff uses this guy in short yardage, over and over, I can’t figure out. He is a candidate for release this offseason, or at least he should be. Brown played almost 50% of the snaps and managed one catch for 17 yards.
Toussaint has been getting a lot of play lately with Forsett hobbled, but was limited to three snaps this week and hasn’t been effective.
