Justin Forsett Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

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.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Seahawks RB Justin Forsett has become an "instant favorite" of HC Pete Carroll.  Every piece of news we've come across this offseason regarding Forsett has been positive.  He's the Seahawks most talented RB, and following the release of LenDale White, he'll get a chance to truly showcase his abilities.  Don't fret the presence of veteran Julius Jones in the backfield -- this is Forsett's gig.  He's an excellent value with a 6th round ADP.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll called the team's RB competition "wide open" after today's practice.  That's good news for Justin Forsett, who's much more talented than Julius Jones and should eventually emerge as the winner.  The two have been splitting 1st-team reps evenly during OTAs.  "There's no reason to call it [now]," Carroll said. "Julius has done everything he needs to do to represent. He's done a beautiful job so far. Justin continues to do real well, too. I love the way he's showing out here. Those guys are certainly in the one-two spots. Whoever is first, it doesn't matter to me right now. I can't tell and I don't care."  Forsett is the guy to own.  He has top-20 upside if the Seahawks commit to him.

While RBs LenDale White and Leon Washington have gotten all the pub in Seattle's backfield this offseason, HC Pete Carroll has been quick to praise Justin Forsett.  "He has a unique competitiveness about him that makes things happen with the ball in his hands," Carroll said about Forsett. "We are going to keep rolling with the process -- no judgments to be passed for a long time but we need to get the ball in his hands. He is a capable third-down guy as well so there is a lot he can do. Right now, I don't see any ceiling on how much he can play. It is going to depend on the mix of the guys. He is doing a great job."  Forsett goes just 5'8, 195 pounds, but he was a feature back in his college days, carrying the ball 305 times in his senior season at Cal.  He won't reach that number with the Seahawks in 2010, but we wouldn't be surprised if he led the team's RBs in total touches.  He's a nice value in drafts right now with an ADP in the late 10th-round.

Seahawks HC Jim Mora announced on Friday that RBs Julius Jones and Justin Forsett will rotate series against the Bucs on Sunday.  Watch 1 quarter of a Seahawks game and it's clear that Forsett is the more explosive back.  We're expecting him to end up with more touches this week.  But with a favorable matchup against Tampa Bay, both guys are solid RB2 plays.

Seahawks HC Jim Mora would not name a starting RB for Sunday's game against the Texans.  But he did say that RB Justin Forsett would see more touches than he did last week.  Forsett had racked up 368 total yards on 60 touches in Weeks 10-12.  But he saw only 8 touches this past week as RB Julius Jones returned to the starting lineup.  Mora said that was more a result of the quadriceps injury that Forsett suffered in practice late in the week than Jones' presence.  Expect an even split between Forsett and Jones this Sunday.

Seahawks RB Justin Forsett suffered a strained quadriceps in Friday's practice.  "I think he'll be OK", HC Jim Mora said.  "But I can't tell you for sure yet."  Look for him to be a game-time decision for Sunday's game.  This development makes him almost useless, especially given the return of Julius Jones.  Keep both Hawks RBs on your bench.

Seahawks RB Justin Forsett (quad) is active for today's game with the 49ers.  Forsett was hurt late this week in practice, and figures to lose carries with the return of Julius Jones.  He's a weak flex option against an elite run defense.

Seahawks HC Jim Mora was asked whether or not RB Justin Forsett will have a carry limit on Sunday against the Vikings.  Mora replied, "Good question. We’re going to find out, because he’s going to be carrying the ball a lot this week."  It sounds like RB Louis Rankin will be used sparingly.  Despite a tough matchup, Forsett makes a nice RB3 or flex play this weekend.
