Rice would have been better off inactive

One of the most unenviable places to be this morning — other than standing next to the shirtless Eagles fan like Jason La Canfora did during Fantasy Live — was sitting in front of your computer trying to decide to play Ray Rice or not.

Even though he was active. Honestly, John Harbaugh could have done us a solid here by putting Rice on the inactive list. But Harbaugh is certainly on the fantasy enemies lift.

And if you decided to go with Rice, well, this could turn out to be a long afternoon. Not that you can be faulted for playing your studs. That is typically the rule in situations like this. But Rice has only two attempts right now for three yards.

Hard to imagine him getting into a rhythm with that kind of limited production. Not that any of this helps, but I feel for you. As Steve Smith South stinks up my starting lineup, I totally feel you.
