Bernard Pierce robbed at gunpoint in Philly

Baltimore Ravens running back Bernard Pierce was robbed at gunpoint on Sunday night and had his BMW stolen, which has since been recovered, according to CBS Philly.

Fortunately, neither Pierce nor a friend that was with at the time was injured.

As a rookie, Pierce was one of the league's most productive backup running backs as he gained 532 yards, 33rd in the NFL, on 108 carries.

Of all running backs with at least 100 carries, only four running backs (and two quarterbacks) averaged more yards per carry than Pierce (4.93). [See list to the right.]

In addition, he broke tackles at a rate that was nearly twice the average of teammate Ray Rice last season and only four backs broke tackles at a higher rate than Pierce.

Heading into the 2013 season, Pierce, my 38th-ranked fantasy running back, is expected to get a larger share of the workload than he had in 2012.
