The Baltimore Ravens' Ray Rice has been nominated for VIZIO's Top Value Performer Award, which goes to the NFL player who gets the "most bang for the buck." The Award winner is a player in the league who has the star power based on great statistics and performance, but still gets paid among the lower level players in the league. The Ravens' Rice had one of the best all-purpose offensive seasons in 2009 with over 1,300 yards rushing and over 700 yards receiving.
