Shark Bites

Ravens RB Justin Forsett is a healthy scratch for today's game against the Raiders. He's been completely ineffective this season and can be dropped from fantasy rosters. RB Kenneth Dixon (knee) is also inactive, while RB Buck Allen is set to make his 2016 debut. Allen figures to play on passing downs, but Terrance West will serve as Baltimore's lead back.

Recent Shark Bites

Broncos RB Justin Forsett carried 6 times and caught 3 passes among 3 targets in his debut with the team Sunday against the Titans. That beat incumbent Devontae Booker by 3 rushing attempts and 1 target. Forsett totaled just 35 yards against a weak Tennessee defense, so he's not close to helping your fantasy team. But his debut shows that you can't count on Booker (who totaled 11 yards) over the next few weeks either.

Broncos HC Gary Kubiak said Wednesday that RB Justin Forsett will play against the Titans this weekend. That's not a surprise considering Forsett has spent 2 seasons in Kubiak's offense. Kubiak added that the veteran will split work with RB Devontae Booker "like Kapri Bibbs did." Bibbs averaged just 5 carries over his last 5 outings. We're not expecting Forsett to see much more than that this weekend, although his role could grow if Booker continues to struggle.

The Lions have signed RB Justin Forsett. The 30-year-old was completely ineffective in 3 games with the Ravens, averaging 3.2 yards per carry and 3.3 yards per catch. That followed a 2015 that saw him muster just 4.2 yards per carry and 4.9 yards per catch. Forsett is simply out of gas. He's not a significant threat to RB Theo Riddick. And a healthy Dwayne Washington should also be ahead of Forsett on the depth chart.

The Ravens have released RB Justin Forsett, according to the Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec. Forsett, turning 31 in a couple of weeks, is simply out of gas. He averaged 3.2 yards per carry and 3.3 yards per catch in the season's first 3 games before being a healthy scratch last week. Baltimore will move forward with Terrance West, Buck Allen and rookie Kenneth Dixon, who's expected to debut this Sunday.

Ian Rapoport reports that the Ravens will "bench" RB Justin Forsett against the Raiders in Week 4 and start RB Terrance West instead. We're not sure yet whether that means Forsett will be a healthy scratch or even remain active but not play. The 2 have split the backfield pretty evenly to date, and neither has been very effective. But this at least clears things up a bit if you're deciding between Ravens RBs for your Week 4 lineup. Barring some significant improvement in West's efficiency, however, this is a situation awaiting RB Kenneth Dixon.
