Seahawks | Rotating running backs

Wed, 08 Sep 2010 11:05:31 -0700

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll, during an interview on SIRIUS NFL Radio, said RB Justin Forsett is a very versatile, elusive running back and a good blocker. However, just because Forsett is starting Week 1 doesn't mean the competition at running back is over. Carroll said RBs Leon Washington and Julius Jones remain in a competition with Forsett for playing time. "I've always felt comfortable rotating guys," Carroll said. He said he plans to have the backs continue to rotate until someone gives him a reason to just stick with one back.

Seahawks | Justin Forsett named starting running back

Mon, 06 Sep 2010 20:15:32 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Justin Forsett was named the Week 1 starter by head coach Pete Carroll, reports Greg Johns, of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. However, Carroll said this decision only applied to the coming game, and he didn't guarantee that Forsett would see more carries than fellow backs Leon Washington and Julius Jones. "This is a competition that is still open. This is not set in stone," Carroll said. "Somebody has to go out first and I want Justin to go out first."

Fantasy Tip: Seattle faces the San Francisco 49ers in the opener; it isn't an enticing matchup for opposing backs. Those that have upcoming fantasy football drafts shouldn't bump Forsett up their boards too much; as Carroll said, this remains a competition. Forsett has the biggest upside of the group, though, and can post No. 2 running back numbers in point-per-reception formats. Drafting him as a middle-rounds, No. 3 option under that scoring system presents a better value. He isn't as reliable in non-PPR setups. Washington remains a late-round flier that's also more valuable in leagues that count catches. Consider Jones an uninspiring depth option until he shows more life.

Seahawks | Running game remains a question mark

Fri, 03 Sep 2010 23:21:22 -0700

The Seattle Seahawks running game remains a huge question mark entering the regular season, reports Greg Johns, of The Seattle Post-Intelligencer. RB Leon Washington (leg) was held out of the team's preseason finale, while RB Julius Jones was given the starting nod. Jones had six carries for 18 yards and didn't show any sort of burst, but the offensive line didn't open many holes for him, either. RB Justin Forsett rushed for 31 yards on six carries, but he was running behind the starting offensive line and going against reserve defenders at that point.

He's been banged around plenty of times here, been knocked off his feet and has been tackled plenty of times here. He's ready to go at this point, so we'll see where he is," head coach Pete Carroll said.

Seahawks | J. Jones will play

Sun, 27 Dec 2009 08:53:09 -0800

Jason La Canfora, of NFL Network, reports Seattle Seahawks RB Julius Jones (rib) will play in Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: This shouldn't make you all that excited. Jones already has proven ineffective even with 15 to 20 carries, and Justin Forsett still makes this a committee. Plus, the Green Bay Packers run D has been solid all year. These backs, who'll probably cannibalize each other, are best suited as flex plays, but their matchup isn't promising.
