Justin Forsett stumbles in prime matchup


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Ravens running back Justin Forsett failed to take advantage of a prime matchup, as he flopped in Week 15 against the Jaguars.

Going against a Jaguars defense that ranked just 27th against running backs, Forsett managed just 4 Fantasy points Sunday, his worst performance of the season. He rushed for just 48 yards on 16 carries, his worst yards per carry performance of the season as well.

Forsett topped the 200-carry mark for the first time in his career Sunday, so it's possible fatigue is setting in. However, he still had 5.5 yards per carry and a touchdown in his previous game, so let's not jump to conclusions. Forsett's enjoying a career season, but he's allowed a bad game here and there. He has a tough matchup on the way in Week 16 with the Texans on the way, but should still be a worthy Fantasy starter for that game.  


Ravens' Justin Forsett does little Week 15


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Ravens running back Justin Forsett did little Week 15 against the Jaguars.

Forsett received the bulk of the team's carries, but wasn't able to do much. He gained 48 yards on 16 carries. Forsett averaged just 3.0 yards per attempt. He wasn't much of a factor in the passing game, either, hauling in one pass for -1 yards. 

Forsett will hope for more Week 16 against the Texans. 


Ravens' Justin Forsett accounts for 71 rushing yards


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Ravens running back Justin Forsett rushed for 71 yards on 13 carries to help the Ravens beat the Dolphins 28-13 Week 14.

The majority of Forsett’s rushing yards came on a 44-yard run late in the fourth quarter. Forsett was also able to add a 2-yard touchdown run early in the fourth quarter. Forsett’s streak of three consecutive games with more than 100 rushing yards came to an end. He also caught both of his receiving targets for 7 yards.

The Ravens host the Jaguars Week 15.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Ravens' Justin Forsett cracks century mark for third straight game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) Ravens running back Justin Forsett cracked the century mark for the third consecutive game during Sunday's loss to the Chargers in Week 13.

Forsett, who scored multiple touchdowns in back-to-back games, was held out of the end zone on Sunday. He ripped a 23-yard run in the second quarter for his longest gain of the day. He carried the ball 24 times for 106 yards, averaging 4.4 yards per attempt. He also caught two passes for 17 yards in a 34-33 defeat.

With his third straight 100-yard performance, Forsett has clinched his first career 1,000-yard season. He has 1,006 yards on the ground through 12 games. He'll look to add to his total Week 14 at Miami.


Ravens RB Justin Forsett can't sign extension in-season


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) Despite the season Ravens running back Justin Forsett is having, Baltimore cannot extend his contract during the season, according to CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora.

Forsett signed a minimum-salary benefit contract, which is for one year and $730,000. The minimum-salary benefit designation prohibits the player and team from altering the contract before the start of free agency.

The only way for Baltimore to keep Forsett from becoming a free agent is to use the franchise tag, which is not happening, according to La Canfora. The Ravens can still talk to Forsett's agent about a new deal prior to the new league year starting in March, but no deal can be executed prior to that date. 

Forsett is very interested in staying with the Ravens, sources said.


RB Forsett: I want to stay with Ravens on long-term deal


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/26/2014) Blossoming Ravens running back Justin Forsett is seeking a long-term contract with the team.

"Definitely, this is a great place, a great organization," he told the Baltimore Sun. "It's hard not to want to be here. Definitely, I'm sure after the season sometime they'll get something done. I would love to sign here. I've been waiting my whole career to find a home somewhere, to not have to move every offseason. So, what would be nice."

Forsett is 97 yards short of 1,000 on the season and has scored seven touchdowns in emerging as the featured back in the wake of the Ray Rice suspension. Forsett exploded for 182 yards and two scores in the Monday night defeat of New Orleans.


'Crazy' how far Justin Forsett has come


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/26/2014) Justin Forsett played in nine games last season for the Jaguars, rushing for 31 yards. Jacksonville let him go in the offseason.

Now he's leading the Ravens -- his fourth team in four seasons -- to a possible playoff berth. Forsett ranks third in the NFL with 903 rushing yards and leads the league with 5.8 yards per carry.

"It's crazy, man," he told the Seattle Times. "You think about where I was this time last year, mostly doing a lot of scout-team work and coming in to play every once in a while. To just get the opportunity when I thought I would never get it again, it's a blessing."

Quarterback Joe Flacco said Forsett is "not letting the guy tackle him in the hole with his arms or anything like that. He's breaking those little things."

Forsett, who leads the league with 12 rushes of 20-plus yards, plays the Chargers in Week 13.


Justin Forsett peaking at the right time


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/25/2014) The Ravens once again leaned heavily on running back Justin Forsett in Week 12 against the Saints, and he once again proved he is one of the best backs in the league right now, as he gashed the Saints repeatedly in a 34-27 win.

Forsett received 22 carries and rumbled for 182 yards and a pair of touchdowns, by far the best performance of his season. He did that against a Saints defense that had allowed just two rushing touchdowns in the previous four games, and he now has four touchdowns in his last two.

Forsett had to deal with splitting carries early in the season, but at this point has pretty convincingly established himself as the team's top option. He is now averaging 5.8 yards per carry for the season, while the team's other backs are averaging just 3.9 overall.

Forsett has a few tough matchups on the way down the stretch, but that probably doesn't matter at this point. The Chargers, Baltimore's Week 13 opponent, have allowed no running back to gain 100 yards over the last three games, but Forsett seems like a decent bet to end that streak at this point. He should be active in all Fantasy formats moving forward. 


Ravens RB Justin Forsett enjoys career night at Saints' expense


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2014) Ravens running back Justin Forsett carried 22 times for a career-high 182 yards and two touchdowns in Monday's win at New Orleans. It was the second straight two-touchdown game for Forsett, who's piled up 302 yards from scrimmage in his past two outings.

Forsett averaged a whopping 8.3 yards per carry as he burst through big holes in Rob Ryan's blitzing defense. Forsett ran untouched on his 20-yard, fourth-quarter touchdown. He squirted through the line for a 13-yard score in the second quarter.

Forsett caught both his targets for 8 yards. Up to seven touchdowns this season, he'll face the Chargers in Week 13.


Justin Forsett stars once again


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Ravens running back Justin Forsett bounced back from a subpar showing with his best of the season in Week 10's 21-7 win over the Titans.

Forsett, who had just 38 yards on nine carries a week ago in a game the Ravens trailed for much of, got much more work Sunday, and made the most of it. He racked up 112 yards on 20 carries, and finished with his first two-touchdown game of the season.

Forsett has established himself as the unquestioned leader in the Ravens' backfield, and there is little reason to think he will be usurped at any point. Even though he did not have more than 14 carries in any of the first six games of the season, Forsett is on pace for 1,281 yards on the ground.

At this point, there shouldn't be any question as to whether you are starting Forsett. You can give a cursory glance to matchups, but he should be in there every week for you once the team returns from their bye with Week 12's matchup against the Saints. 


Ravens' Justin Forsett totals 112 yards, two TDs in Week 10 win


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Ravens running back Justin Forsett rushed for more than 100 yards and two touchdowns during a 21-7 win Week 10 vs. Tennessee. It was the second multitouchdown game of his career. His only other multitouchdown game came in 2009.

Forsett helped tie the game at 7 in the second quarter with a 9-yard rushing touchdown. He then gave the Ravens the lead for good with a 11-yard touchdown run with 5:36 left in the third quarter.

He surpassed 100 rushing yards for the second time this season with a 37-yard gain -- his longest of the afternoon -- with 2:26 left in the game. Forsett just missed his third touchdown, as he was dragged down at the 2-yard line. Forsett was given another chance for his third touchdown, but he was stopped after a 1-yard gain. Quarterback Joe Flacco then took two kneel-downs to run out the clock.

Forsett finished with a team-high 112 rushing yards on 20 carries. He had no catches but was targeted once. The Ravens are on a bye Week 11 before returning to action Week 12 at New Orleans.


Justin Forsett hoping for early lead


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/7/2014) Ravens running back Justin Forsett has seen his role shrink a bit recently, but that could change in Week 10 against the Titans.

Forsett's workload peaked when he received 23 carries in Week 7, but he had just nine carries last week as the Ravens  played from behind most of the game. That shouldn't be the case in Week 10, as the Titans have spent plenty of time playing from behind. Opposing running backs are getting 28.6 carries per game against the Titans this season, and they rank 27th in the league in Fantasy points per game allowed to that position as a result.

The Ravens' running back situation has changed a few times this season, but Forsett seems firmly entrenched in his role as the lead guy. If they get up big early Sunday, he could see plenty of work, and makes for a solid Fantasy play in Week 10. 


Ravens running backs show versatility


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/3/2014) The Ravens running game didn't stand a chance Week 9 at Pittsburgh, not with Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger throwing for six touchdown for a second straight game. Justin Forsett and Lorenzo Taliaferro split carries almost evenly, but because the Ravens were forced to pass for virtually the entire second half, they combined for just 16. Forsett had nine for 38 yards, and Taliaferro had seven for 21.

But what the two lacked as rushers they made up for as receivers. Forsett was actually the Ravens' leading receiver with 67 yards on five catches -- a skill he hadn't shown since averaging 4.6 catches in the Ravens' first five games. Taliaferro, though clearly more of a traditional runner, pitched in 34 yards on three catches.

In other words, the low rushing totals for Forsett and Taliaferro are nothing to worry about in Fantasy. Both still got theirs, just in a different form. And though Forsett may have ceded more touches to Taliaferro in this one, the distribution of playing time wasn't even close. Forsett played 73 percent of the Ravens' snaps and remains the preferred option of the two. Taliaferro played 23 percent and is still more of a handcuff option.


Justin Forsett leads Ravens in rushing, receiving in Week 9 loss


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2014) Ravens running back Justin Forsett rushed for a team-high 38 yards on nine carries and caught five of his eight targets for a team-high 67 receiving yards in Baltimore's 43-23 loss to Pittsburgh in Week 9.

The running game failed to get in a rhythm with the Steelers shooting out to a big lead in the second quarter, and Forsett received just nine of the 17 carries that went to running backs in the game. He continues to supplement his rushing performance with quality work in the passing game, and his 67 receiving yards Sunday represented a season high. It was the second time this season Forsett has topped 100 total yards in a game. He's set to face the Titans in Week 10.
