Detroit Lions RB Justin Forsett rushed eight times for 33 yards in the Week 7 game against the Washington Redskins, and he added two receptions for 15 yards in his second game with the team.
Fantasy Tip: Forsett didn't do much in his first game with the team last week, and he likely wasn't terribly familiar with the playbook. He looked a lot more comfortable on his 10 touches, and he should be even more comfortable in Week 8 in Houston. Forsett isn't a bad bye-week fill-in, especially if the Dewayne Washington and Theo Riddick continue to miss time.

Detroit Lions RB Justin Forsett rushed five times for just five yards in the Week 6 game against the Los Angeles Rams in his team debut. He was targeted once but did not have any catches.
Fantasy Tip: Forsett was recently picked up and likely has a limited knowledge of the playbook. He might be able to help out down the road, but for now he is worth nothing more than a reserve roster spot in deeper fantasy leagues.

Detroit Lions RBs Zach Zenner and Justin Forsett are set to split carries against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, Oct. 16, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Fantasy Tip: A one-two punch of Zenner and Forsett sounds like an excuse for Matthew Stafford to throw the ball about 50 times and maybe get Golden Tate some snaps out of the backfield. If you're desperate you can roll the dice on one of them -- Zenner's experience in the offense makes him the safer bet -- but this is a situation to avoid if you can.

Detroit Lions RB Justin Forsett may receive some playing time in Week 6 even though he signed with the Lions earlier this week, according to head coach Jim Caldwell.
Fantasy Tip: Forsett likely would have a limited role if he is active for the game, so owners should avoid him for the time being.

Detroit Lions RB Justin Forsett has done "a good job picking things up", according to offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter, after signing with the team earlier this week.
Fantasy Tip: Forsett should be considered the favorite to lead this backfield in touches since Dwayne Washington will be playing hurt and Theo Riddick has already been ruled out. Whether that actually helps out fantasy owners or not is another story, as Detroit ranks 23rd in the league in rushing at 89.8 yards/game. Expect a pass-heavy game plan from Detroit this weekend, which is probably also how Forsett will generate a good chunk of whatever little fantasy value he provides.
Thu, 13 Oct 2016 07:31:54 -0700
Detroit Lions RB Dwayne Washington is likely to remain the No. 2 running back with RB Justin Forsett challenging to be the No. 3.
Fantasy Tip: Washington has a lot of promise, but he hasn't done much on the field. Theo Riddick should remain the most-used back because of his skills in the passing game, and Washington is an RB5 that should still be owned. Forsett is an option in deeper leagues, but he's not on the traditional radar yet.
