Look for more screen passes from Ravens


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/6/2014) Expect Ravens running backs Ray Rice and Bernard Pierce to catch more screen passes this season. New offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak wants quarterback Joe Flacco to release the ball quicker, and Kubiak plans to use the screen pass to that effect.

"I was telling [coach] John Harbaugh the other night: 'You know, I think we've got a chance to be a pretty good screen team," Kubiak told ESPN.com. "Our guards are not only big and physical, but they can get out and run."

The Ravens have called 123 screen passes since 2001, fourth-fewest in the NFL over that span, the website said. In addition to Rice and Pierce, running backs Justin Forsett and rookie Lorenzo Taliaferro could benefit if Kubiak follows through on his plan.


Harbaugh: I'm very confident in Bernard Pierce


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/25/2014) With Ray Rice suspended for the first two games of the season, the Ravens have to figure out who will start at running back in his absence, reports ESPN.

The top choice to fill in for Rice is Bernard Pierce. He was limited all offseason after having shoulder surgery, but he looked to be in good shape as the Ravens opened training camp this week. 

"I'm very confident in Bernard. I've always liked Bernard," coach John Harbaugh said. "He's a heck of a player. He’s worked very hard, he’s 217 pounds, [and] he's in the best shape of his life. He looked good out here the last couple of days. We'll know more by Tuesday once we get the pads on and seeing him move with the pads on and how the shoulder holds up -- that'll be important."

Outside of Pierce, the Ravens have Justin Forsett and rookie Lorenzo Taliaferro, but Pierce is the likely starter with Rice out.

"I have a lot of confidence in all of our guys," Harbaugh said.


Justin Forsett could be a part of Ravens run game


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/18/2014) Justin Forsett has experience running in new Ravens offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak's running scheme, so his new team could have some plans for him thanks to his familiarity with his old coach. Per the Baltimore Sun, Forsett could work as a third-down back and potentially be part of the base offense while starter Ray Rice serves a suspension to begin the season. 

"The zone scheme is all about repetition," Forsett said. "Even though I've been in it for most of my career, you still got to get the reps in. My whole career, I've been one of those guys that switched with the zone run scheme. I've been able to run the outside and inside zone pretty well. A third-down guy most of my career, being able to understand the blitz protections and being able to pick up guys and run routes out of the backfield and out wide."

Forsett suffered a stress fracture and a turf toe injury last season and had just 31 yards on six carries over nine games. 


Ravens awaiting word on Ray Rice suspension


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/7/2014) The Ravens are still waiting to hear how long running back Ray Rice will be unavailable to begin the season with a possible suspension, reports ESPN.

The report says Rice is expected to receive a multi-game suspension for allegedly striking his fiancée unconscious in February. The report suggests a suspension of two to four games for Rice would follow the league's recent track record with first-time offenders. 

If Rice is going to miss a major chunk of the season, the Ravens would give Bernard Pierce, Justin Forsett and Lorenzo Taliaferro more snaps this summer, especially later in the preseason. If Rice is only going to be suspended for a couple of games, the Ravens' rotation at running back may not change significantly.


Ravens expecting to use RB by committee?


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/30/2014) As a suspension looms for running back Ray Rice, the Baltimore Sun believes the Ravens will use a running back by committee approach even when Rice is eligible to play. 

Bernard Pierce figures to be the first man up to replace Rice and take on a nice amount of work but he has yet to be cleared following offseason shoulder surgery and has struggled in two seasons in the pros. Justin Forsett is a veteran familiar with the Ravens' new running scheme but he's played sparingly over his six-year career. Rookie Lorenzo Taliaferro has some talent but still hasn't learned the offense and might not have the best skill-set to play outside of situational roles. 

The Sun believes the Ravens will need "all hands on deck" to not only replace Rice, but pair with him when he's active. 


Justin Forsett, not Ray Rice, took first-team reps


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/2/2014) In a move that might have been meant to send a message more than anything else, Justin Forsett handled most of the first-team reps for the Ravens during an OTA practice on Friday ahead of Ray Rice. And according to ESPN, Forsett looked extremely fast and showed off good hands. 

It's expected that Forsett's work with the starters was just to let Rice know that his off-field issues have been noticed and will be considered by the coaching staff. However, Forsett could be in line for some work early on this season if Rice has to serve a suspension. 


Ravens to add one or two running backs


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/30/2014) Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said the team planned to add one or two running backs even before Ray Rice's felony assault case, reports ESPN.com. Look for Baltimore to draft at least one of those.

Behind Rice, the Ravens have Bernard Pierce, Justin Forsett and Cierre Wood.


Justin Forsett motivated after lost season


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/7/2014) New Ravens running back Justin Forsett is highly motivated after a 2013 season in which he dealt with turf toe, then a stress fracture in his foot. He played in nine games for the Jaguars, rushing for 31 yards on six carries.

“I had a lot of injuries and a lot of adversity last year being in Jacksonville," Forsett told the Baltimore Sun. "It made me stronger, definitely a better man, and I’m excited to release everything that I have in me out on this field. I’m 100 percent healthy. I’m back now and I’m ready to go."

In 2012 with Houston, Forsett rushed for 375 yards (6.0 per carry), including an 81-yard touchdown.

"I’m hungry right now," Forsett told the paper. "I definitely have a chip on my shoulder the size of Texas that I want to get off, and I’m excited about this opportunity. I want to come play and I want to win.”

Jaguars backup RBs do little Sunday


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2013) Jaguars backup running backs did little during the Week 7 home loss to the Chargers Sunday. With Maurice Jones-Drew struggling to get anything going on the ground, little was expected of the reserves. 

Running back Justin Forsett rushed twice for 19 yards in the game. He also caught a pass for 10 yards as the best performer of the bunch. Dunta Robinson had one carry for 9 yards in the game and Jordan Todman added one for 8 yards. Todman scored in the game but it was called back. Neither Todman nor Robinson were targeted in the passing game. 

Jacksonville has yet to score an offensive touchdown at home this season. They play at home Week 8 against San Francisco. 


Jaguars backup runners do little


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Even punter Bryan Anger got in on the action, but failed to pick up any yards on his only attempt. 

They'll take on the Chargers Week 7.


Justin Forsett only touches football once


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com

Justin Forsett not yet even a PPR league option


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/12/2013) One game does not a season make, but it appears that Justin Forsett will be used often by the Jaguars as a pass-catcher out of the backfield. He snagged four passes for 22 yards in the lopsided loss to Kansas City in the season opener. He caught just three passes throughout 2012 with Houston.

That could mean quick points for those playing in PPR leagues, but owners must be cautioned that Forsett won't be getting many carries, as one might expect from a teammate of Maurice Jones-Drew. Forsett had just one rushing attempt against the Chiefs for 7 yards.

It would be wise to monitor the progress of Forsett against Oakland on Sunday and beyond to see if his reps and production grow. Until proven otherwise, he should remain on the bench in all formats.
