Ravens | Justin Forsett could see big workload

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 22:48:05 -0700

Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett is likely to see another substantial workload, as offensive coordinator Marc Trestman is a big believer in the running game, and the team will maintain the same zone blocking system they had last year under former offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak.

Fantasy Tip: Trestman also likes to use screen passes and throws to running backs out of the backfield, so Forsett could be a huge addition for fantasy owners in points per reception (PPR) leagues. He had 44 catches last season. Under Trestman in Chicago, Matt Forte had 102 receptions, so keep that in mind on draft day.

Ravens | Justin Forsett played well in 2014

Thu, 16 Jul 2015 09:25:52 -0700

Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett averaged 5.4 yards per carry last season and also had 17 rushes of more than 20 yards, which was the most among running backs in both categories.

Fantasy Tip: Forsett re-signed with the Ravens this offseason and should see a majority of carries this season. Forsett should be a solid option in the early- to middle-rounds of drafts and will be a starting option most weeks.

Ravens | Justin Forsett to catch more passes?

Thu, 04 Jun 2015 13:28:00 -0700

Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett could see an increased role in the passing game under new offensive coordinator Marc Trestman. Forsett said he's excited about being used more as a receiver and is making sure his route-running is up to par so he can be ready for when he's called upon in that area.

Fantasy Tip: Forsett probably won't put up the same kind of numbers Matt Forte did under Trestman in Chicago, but he's still a candidate to be a RB1 in point-per-reception leagues. He may not be used as much on the ground with Lorenzo Taliaferro and rookie Javorius Allen in the mix as well, so temper expectations a little bit in standard leagues.

Ravens | Justin Forsett expects bigger role

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 18:40:22 -0700

Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett expects to have a bigger role in the passing game in 2015. "I was a third down back in the past. That's how I got my start was being a third down back, picking up blitzes, running screens and routes out of the backfield." Forsett said. "I haven't spent much extra time running routes because outside of last year, I have always been used that way. I am ready for it," said Forsett.

Fantasy Tip: Chicago Bears RB Matt Forte caught 102 passes in 2014, in Marc Trestman's offense. With Trestman now the Ravens' offensive coordinator, Forsett should catch more than the 44 balls he caught last season. After emerging as a top fantasy running back in standard leagues in 2014, Forsett could now conquer PPR leagues as well.

Ravens | Justin Forsett firmly grasping role

Tue, 05 May 2015 07:47:30 -0700

Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett has a firm grip on the lead running back role after the Ravens waited until the fourth round to select RB Javorius Allen in the 2015 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Tip: Forsett is a risky RB1 because he came out of nowhere for his breakthrough '14 season. He has no competition, though, and you'll need to grab him in the late-first or early second round of traditional drafts.

Ravens | Justin Forsett back with Baltimore

Thu, 12 Mar 2015 11:30:35 -0700

Free-agent RB Justin Forsett (Ravens) re-signed with the Baltimore Ravens on a three-year deal Thursday, March 12. according to a source. Financial terms weren't disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: It'll be extremely tough for Forsett to best his outstanding 2014 campaign in which he totaled 235 carries for 1,266 yards and eight touchdowns, especially without offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak and the zone-blocking system. Expect Forsett to be overvalued in 2015 fantasy drafts. However, he could still serve as a legitimate RB2 in point-per-reception leagues.

Redskins | 'Skins could make play for Justin Forsett

Fri, 06 Mar 2015 10:05:39 -0800

Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent RB Justin Forsett could see interest from the Washington Redskins in free agency.

Fantasy Tip: Forsett is likely to get a lot of work with what ever team he signs with in 2015, but it is hard to imagine he will repeat on an outstanding 2014 season. Forsett should be considered an RB2 with some upside in PPR leagues.
