ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms that Ravens RB Justin Forsett (knee) will play against the Dolphins today.  He only practiced on Friday and is listed as questionable, but Forsett was never in danger of missing this game.  On a 3-game streak of 100+ rushing yards, Forsett is a must start against a Miami run defense that's struggled lately.

Ravens RB Justin Forsett (knee) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Dolphins.  He only put in a limited practice on Friday, but we've heard nothing to suggest that the knee is a major concern.  Go ahead and pencil Forsett into fantasy lineups and check back Sunday morning to make sure he's active.

Ravens RB Justin Forsett (ankle) returned to practice on Thursday.  It's confirmation that he'll be good to go for Sunday night's showdown with the Steelers.  Forsett has averaged 18 carries over his last 3 games, making him a strong fantasy play against Pittsburgh's middling run defense.

Ravens RB Justin Forsett revealed that he has a "minor" ankle injury.  He was held out of Wednesday's practice, but that's a rest day for plenty of full-time players.  Forsett fully expects to play against the Steelers on Sunday night.  He'll be safe to use in fantasy lineups as long as he practices Thursday and Friday.

Ravens HC John Harbaugh praised RB Justin Forsett's performance in the opener.  "Justin did a great job," Harbaugh said. "He has been playing that way all since he got here, all through offseason and training camp. He proved it in the game."  Forsett ripped off 70 yards on 11 carries -- a 6.4-yard average.  Bernard Pierce, meanwhile, took his 6 totes for just 14 yards, with none longer than 6.  Then he lost a fumble and was benched.  Insider Jamison Hensley believes Forsett has "earned the right to start" against the Steelers on Thursday night.  We'll bet on him leading the backfield in touches, but Pierce will stay involved.  It's a situation best avoided in fantasy.

The Ravens have added RB Justin Forsett on a 1-year deal.  The former Colt, Seahawk, Texan and Jaguar brings no fantasy value, but he's at least familiar with the system of new OC Gary Kubiak.  Forsett carried 63 times for 347 yards and a TD with Houston in 2012, catching 3 passes for 38 more yards.  He padded even that meager rushing total with an 81-yard TD run at Detroit on Thanksgiving that shouldn't have counted.  (Replay showed his knee hit the ground early int he run.)  Forsett's no lock to break camp with Baltimore.  But he could command 5 touches or so a game if he makes the regular-season roster.  Incumbents Ray Rice and Bernard Pierce are both coming off terrible seasons.

The Jaguars released RB Justin Forsett.  He signed a 2-year deal last offseason but carried just 6 times in 2013.  Forsett dealt with a toe injury in the summer and then suffered a broken foot in Week 12.  He should be fine for training camp but might need to battle just for a roster spot.  His upside is as a 8-10 touch change-of-pace option.  Forsett turns 29 in October.  With Maurice Jones-Drew set to hit the free-agent market later today, Jordan Todman and Denard Robinson currently top Jacksonville's RB depth chart.

Jaguars RB Justin Forsett suffered a sprained big toe on his right foot on Thursday.  "Pretty good limp," beat writer Ryan O'Halloran observed.  Toe injuries can be debilitating for RBs, so this is definitely worth keeping an eye on.  Forsett was set to be the handcuff to Maurice Jones-Drew this season.  QB-turned-RB Denard Robinson sits 3rd on the depth chart.

The Jaguars have signed RB Justin Forsett.  He's a nice change-of-pace option, with a career 4.9 yards-per-carry average and 100 receptions over the last 4 seasons.  He only figures to see a handful of touches per game behind Maurice Jones-Drew though.  Forsett will be a worthwhile handcuff for MJD owners, but he won't have standalone fantasy value.

The Texans have signed RB Justin Forsett.  In Seattle the past 3 seasons, Forsett averaged 4.6 yards per carry on 278 attempts.  He also compiled 730 yards on 97 catches -- good for a 7.5-yard average.  The 5'8, 198-pounder is too small to play a major ball-carrying role, but he's an explosive change-of-pace option.  He'll be #3 on Houston's depth chart, though, and won't see enough touches to be a fantasy factor.

Seahawks beat writer Danny O'Neill believes RB Leon Washington may take over as the team's 3rd-down back this season.  HC Pete Carroll has talked about wanting to get Lil' Leon more involved on offense, and he received 10 touches in Saturday's preseason contest.  Forsett would be left without much of a role if Washington steps in as the pass-catching back.  We'd avoid both guys in fantasy drafts.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll officially named Justin Forsett his starting RB for the team's Week 1 game against the 49ers.  RB Leon Washington will also see plenty of action, but Forsett is a good bet for 15+ touches.  He's a rock-solid RB3 with RB2 upside when the matchup is right.

According to the Seahawks official site, RB Justin Forsett has "flashed most frequently" of all the RBs at camp. Forsett played in a similar zone-blocking scheme at Cal, so it's no wonder he's excelling in Alex Gibbs’ system. In our minds, he's still the front-runner for the majority of the carries, but Julius Jones and Leon Washington will take some bites out of his production.

ESPN.com's Mike Sando believes Seahawks RB Justin Forsett's "style suits the Seahawks' full-scale conversion to [OC] Alex Gibbs' zone-blocking scheme."  We couldn't agree more.  The scheme calls for the RB to quickly diagnose the defense, find a hole, make a quick cut and go.  And that's Forsett's calling card.  If Seattle commits to getting him 12-15 carries per game, you're looking at a top-20 RB.  The problem with Forsett is that his ADP has sky-rocketed up to 6.03 over the past month.  We wouldn't take him any higher than that.
