Ravens | Justin Forsett splits the load

Sun, 11 Sep 2016 21:53:03 -0700

Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett carried 10 times for 41 yards in Week 1 against the Buffalo Bills, and he added three receptions for 15 yards. He split the rushing load with RB Terrance West, who had 12 runs for 32 yards and two grabs for six yards.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners hate to see a split or timeshare, as it's hard to figure out who the top dog will be. For now it's a good idea in fantasy leagues to avoid the Baltimore running backs completely.

Ravens | Justin Forsett rushes for 41 yards

Sun, 11 Sep 2016 14:09:26 -0700

Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett rushed for 41 yards on 10 carries against the Buffalo Bills in Week 1. He also caught three passes for 15 yards during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Forsett received the start in Week 1 but shared snaps with Terrance West. The Ravens likely will continue to split the running back reps between two or three running backs, which hurts the fantasy value of Forsett. Forsett could be a flex option at this point but is not a weekly option.

Ravens | Baltimore confirms RB committee

Thu, 08 Sep 2016 21:55:25 -0700

Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett, RB Terrance West and RB Javorius Allen will all see playing time at some point against the Buffalo Bills in Week 1, offensive coordinator Marc Trestman said Thursday, Sept. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Baltimore's backfield is a nightmare for fantasy owners, and the situation will only become worse when Kenneth Dixon returns from injury. Forsett is probably the best bet to lead the way for now, but West, Allen and Dixon are worth stashing in case one emerges as the lead back.

Ravens | Justin Forsett says he will start

Thu, 08 Sep 2016 09:07:29 -0700

Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett said he will start in Week 1 against the Buffalo Bills and is ready for 20 to 25 carries if needed. Forsett may be part of a committee at the position because head coach John Harbaugh said he would like to get all of the running backs involved.

Fantasy Tip: Forsett probably will receive a majority of the carries against the Bills, but Terrance West and Javorius Allen should also receive playing time. Forsett can be a flex option in most fantasy leagues, but he may lose some value as the season goes on.

Ravens | Justin Forsett re-ups with Ravens

Mon, 05 Sep 2016 08:08:34 -0700

Free-agent RB Justin Forsett (Ravens) has agreed to re-sign with the Baltimore Ravens Monday, Sept. 5. Terms weren't disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Forsett is expected to have a big role in Week 1. He's a low-end RB2, but he has bust potential that makes him a better RB3.

Ravens | Justin Forsett to play big role?

Sun, 04 Sep 2016 20:39:08 -0700

Free-agent RB Justin Forsett (Ravens) is expected to re-sign with the Baltimore Ravens and play a significant role on offense in Week 1 against the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Tip: After being cut a couple of days ago, it sounds like Forsett will be back and in a big way. Scoop him up if a fellow owner cut him loose.

Ravens | Justin Forsett to be brought back?

Sat, 03 Sep 2016 21:40:52 -0700

Updating a previous report, the Baltimore Ravens could re-sign newly released RB Justin Forsett later this week, according to ESPN's Jamison Hensley.

Fantasy Tip: Baltimore's backfield is in a state of flux, and if the Ravens do re-sign Forsett it would immediately push the likes of Javorius Allen, Terrance West and Kenneth Dixon right back down the depth chart. Your best move is to wait for clarity, though if someone in your league dropped Forsett it might be worth claiming him ASAP.

Ravens | Justin Forsett released

Sat, 03 Sep 2016 13:07:46 -0700

Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett was released Saturday, Sept. 3, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Javorius Allen and Terrance West probably will share carries at the start of the season with Forsett no longer on the team. Allen can be a No. 2 or No. 3 running back in most fantasy leagues, while West should be a decent No. 3 back. Kenneth Dixon could see more carries as the season goes on and could be a late-round option in leagues because of his potential.

Ravens | Baltimore set for committee backfield?

Wed, 24 Aug 2016 10:23:51 -0700

Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett is still in line to be the starting running back, in the opinion of ESPN's Jamison Hensley, but RBs Javorius Allen and Kenneth Dixon project to share third-down work with RB Terrance West serving as a short-yardage back in the red zone.

Fantasy Tip: As an undersized journeyman, Forsett's reign atop the depth chart could be short lived, and the potential of a multi-faceted rushing attack isn't ideal for his fantasy stock. West presents nice value as a late-round flier in standard and touchdown-heavy settings, whereas Allen presents similar potential in PPR leagues. Dixon is likely the most talented back of the quartet, but expect him to have to bide his time for an opportunity in 2016. The rookie is nothing more than a stash option at this point.
