ESPN Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley believes that "in all likelihood" Bernard Pierce remains Baltimore's starting tailback when healthy.

Pierce was inactive for Week 3 with a thigh injury. "We thought we'd get him into the game, but it didn't work out," coach John Harbaugh said. "We should have a good chance of getting him back next week." Rookie Lorenzo Taliaferro piled up 91 yards and a TD on 18 carries (5.06 YPC) in Sunday's win over the Browns. Pierce may remain the starter in name, but he's likely on a short leash. Pierce is averaging 4.04 YPC with a lost fumble on the year.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt confirmed Jake Locker will remain his starting quarterback.

Considering Locker's backup is Charlie Whitehurst, it speaks volumes that the question even has to be asked. Locker was bad again Sunday, posting a 41.9 passer rating in an ugly 33-7 loss at Cincy. This comes on the heels of a 26-10 home loss to Dallas. "One of the things that you asked me when I first got here was what would I do differently," Whisenhunt said. "One of the things was patience with the quarterback. Jake has to play better." Locker has a plus matchup against the Colts in Week 4, but he'll be extremely hard to trust.

Julius Thomas caught three passes for 17 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 3 loss at Seattle.

Oddly, Thomas was not a part of the gameplan even though Antonio Gates put three touchdowns on this Seattle defense last week. Luckily for owners, he got the nod on a shovel pass from Peyton Manning in the fourth quarter and scored from three yards out -- his fifth touchdown in the first three weeks. The best news for owners is that after the Week 4 bye, Thomas gets to face a Cardinals defense that is inept at covering the tight end.

Jacob Tamme caught two passes for 22 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 3 loss at Seattle.

Tamme came on in "12" sets after Virgil Green left with a concussion. He scored a 26-yard touchdown to bring the Broncos within two points with 18 seconds left in regulation, which will likely be his biggest play of the season. Tamme had one catch in the first two games even though Wes Welker was suspended.

Demaryius Thomas caught four passes for 31 yards in Sunday's Week 3 overtime loss at Seattle.

Thomas did salvage his day slightly with a tough, game-tying two-point conversion near the end of regulation. But he was off his game again, dropping a couple bubble screens and luckily avoiding a fumble on replay. He did see a lot of Richard Sherman, but was not shadowed by any stretch and struggled to get open against Byron Maxwell as well. The good news is that Thomas has the bye to get right and then gets plus matchups against the Cardinals, Jets and 49ers. He's a nice buy-low.

Making his 2014 debut, Wes Welker caught six passes for 60 yards in Sunday's Week 3 overtime loss at Seattle.

The Broncos went into this game wanting Welker to be a role player on passing downs only. But that plan went out the window when they fell behind 17-3 late in the third quarter, and Welker became a favorite target of Peyton Manning. He's still plenty capable of getting open in the slot, meaning he'll be good for 5-7 catches per game going forward. But with his snaps in doubt and Emmanuel Sanders shining, Welker won't get near 2013 levels. He's also a concussion away from an extended absence.
Sep 21 - 8:54 PM

Mike Wallace caught 5-of-12 targets for 74 yards and added a 12-yard rushing attempt in the Dolphins' Week 3 loss to the Chiefs.

The usage and targeting were nice to see, but Ryan Tannehill frequently misfired on throws to Wallace, particularly at the intermediate level. Still, with at least 80 total yards and/or a touchdown in each of Miami's first three games, Wallace continues to pay serious fantasy dividends for drafters who bought him at a lowered ADP. He'll be a rock-solid WR2 against the Raiders in Week 4.
Sep 21 - 8:53 PM

Ronnie Hillman rushed two times for two yards and caught one pass for seven yards in Sunday's Week 3 loss at Seattle.

Montee Ball lost a fumble on his first carry of the game, but was not benched. Hillman did appear to play ahead of C.J. Anderson as this backup position remains fluid heading into the Week 3 bye. It's a competition.
