Justin Forsett Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

The Ravens selected RB Buck Allen in the 4th round.  This fit makes a ton of sense.  Allen is 1 of the best pass-catching backs in this draft class, racking up 41 catches for 458 yards and a score in 2014.  He led the RB class in yards per route run, per Pro Football Focus.  Allen joins a Ravens offense run by OC Marc Trestman, who loves to get his RBs involved in the passing game.  Justin Forsett is a strong pass-catcher, but Allen could immediately eat into his receiving production.  Longer term, the 6'0, 221-pounder has the potential to develop into a lead back.  Allen's arrival is bad news for RB Lorenzo Taliaferro.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Ravens have reached a deal to keep RB Justin Forsett around. Forsett enjoyed easily his best year to date in 2014 but then watched OC Gary Kubiak move on to Denver. Baltimore replaced him with Marc Trestman, who ran the Bears offense that found 102 receptions for Matt Forte -- 19 more than any other RB in the league last year. Forsett will turn 30 in mid-October but has logged just 582 carries in his career, including only 235 as the Ravens' lead back last year. We wouldn't be surprised to see Lorenzo Taliaferro take on more work in 2015 -- or the team bring in another back -- but Forsett looks like the top early candidate to lead the backfield in touches again. Expect him to settle into RB2 range when our 2015 fantasy football rankings come out.

Ravens RB Lorenzo Taliaferro (knee, ankle) is inactive for today’s game against the Jaguars. Bernard Pierce will serve as the #2 RB behind Justin Forsett but is unlikely to see more than a handful of carries.

Ravens RB Lorenzo Taliaferro (knee, ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Jaguars. He didn’t practice all week, though, and is not expected to play. That’ll leave Bernard Pierce to see a handful of carries behind Justin Forsett.

Ravens RB Lorenzo Taliaferro suffered a sprain knee and ankle in Sunday's win over the Dolphins.  Taliaferro was back in the #2 RB spot in that one, carrying 7 times for 35 yards.  But he's iffy for this weekend's game against the Jaguars and wasn't a fantasy option anyway.  If Taliaferro is sidelined, Bernard Pierce will be locked in as Justin Forsett's backup.

Ravens RB Justin Forsett (knee) is officially active for today's game against the Dolphins.  He's expected to see a full workload, making him a must-start in fantasy football.

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) is probable for Sunday night’s game against the Steelers. He’s averaged 18 carries over his last 3 games and averaged 7 yards per carry vs. Pittsburgh back in Week 2.

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.
