Justin Forsett totaled 20 yards on seven carries and reeled in six-of-seven targets for 12 yards Sunday in the Ravens' Week 3 win over the Jaguars.
He drew the start and out-touched Terrance West 13-12, though West saw more carries. Forsett didn’t get much traction on Sunday, particularly in the first half when he was stuffed for only four yards on three carries. Right now the Ravens are just biding their time until fourth-round rookie Kenneth Dixon returns from a knee injury. Forsett won’t be much more than a flex consideration next week against Oakland.

Justin Forsett played 41-of-75 snaps Week 2 against the Browns.

He almost doubled the playing time of Terrance West, who played just 21 snaps. Neither back put up big fantasy numbers even in a good matchup. Both are FLEX plays at best heading into a matchup with the Jaguars.
Sep 19 - 9:20 AM

Justin Forsett rushed 14 times for 37 yards and caught 3-of-5 targets for nine yards in the Ravens' Week 2 win over the Browns.

Forsett got the nominal start, but again split work with Terrance West, who carried it 11 times. Neither running back did a whole lot, as West managed just 42 yards on his totes and dropped his lone target. This is shaping up as a backfield to simply avoid after two weeks. The Ravens are a pass-first team. Forsett won't be anything more than a flex play next week at Jacksonville.
Sep 18 - 5:18 PM

Justin Forsett out-snapped Terrance West 34-30 in Week 1 against the Bills.

West out-carried (12-10) and out-touched (14-13) Forsett in this even timeshare, but Forsett averaged 4.1 YPC to West's 2.7. The Ravens are expected to run the ball more this week against a lowly Browns team, but both backs remain RB3/FLEX options only until one pulls away from the other.

Justin Forsett rushed 10 times for 41 yards in the Ravens' Week 1 win over the Bills.

He added three catches for 15 yards on three targets. Despite being released in an odd situation at final cuts, Forsett was re-signed two days later and got the start in the opener. He and Terrance West were the only two backs active, and West received 14 touches in an even timeshare. The Ravens never came close to the goal line, scoring their lone touchdown from 66 yards away and settling for two field goals. We're going to have to wait to see who handles goal-line carries. Forsett will be an FLEX option next week at the lowly Browns.
Sep 11 - 5:25 PM

The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec reports Justin Forsett will start, but the Ravens will use the "hot hand" at running back Sunday.

Zrebiec adds Terrance West should see work "early and often," and Buck Allen should get his touches as well. This backfield is a true RBBC, making it tough to put any of them in a fantasy lineup. This is a situation to avoid even in a good matchup.
Sep 11 - 10:33 AM

Ravens OC Marc Trestman confirmed the team will use a rotation at running back.

"I think the bottom line is we have some idea in how we want to work them in and rotate them, and then we will adapt to the game conditions and see where it goes," Trestman said. "I expect to see all the guys playing and in there at some point in time." All three of Justin Forsett, Buck Allen, and Terrance West will see carries against the Bills, and the situation will get even murkier once rookie Kenneth Dixon returns from a knee injury. This is a situation to avoid if possible.
Sep 8 - 11:13 PM

Justin Forsett said Wednesday that he's still the Ravens' starting running back.

Forsett jokingly called his release last week a "trial separation," and he never cleaned out his locker. "I'll be lining up there as the starter as of now," Forsett said. "It's my job to go out there and try to dominate and make it clear for them. I'm excited. Feed me." While Forsett may get the start, the Ravens figure to feature both he and Terrance West against the Bills. Forsett should be owned in all leagues, but it remains to be seen just how big of a workload he'll handle.

Ravens re-signed RB Justin Forsett to a two-year, $6 million contract.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports the deal will become official before Tuesday's practice. Forsett was widely expected to re-sign with the Ravens after being released at final cuts, and The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec expects him to play a "significant" role Week 1. With Forsett, Terrance West, and Buck Allen all likely to see touches, it is tough to trust any Baltimore back against the Bills.
Sep 5 - 11:04 AM

The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec believes Justin Forsett will have a "significant" Week 1 role.

It has become all but a formality that Forsett will be re-signed early this week, and it looks like he will return to something resembling a No. 1 role. That said, the Ravens were always expected to use a heavy committee, and that seems especially true after they were willing to risk putting Forsett on the street for a couple days. With Forsett, Terrance West, and Buck Allen likely to get looks, all three are risky FLEX plays at best Week 1.
Sep 4 - 9:26 PM

Pro Football Talk reports free agent RB Justin Forsett is "likely" to re-sign with the Ravens.

There has been constant buzz Forsett would return to Baltimore after being cut Saturday, but this is the first report which categorized a return as probable. This is more a question of when than if at this point. Terrance West and Buck Allen are still quality waiver adds, but their upside will be stunted by Forsett's return.
Sep 4 - 11:59 AM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports it's "definitely possible" the Ravens re-sign free agent Justin Forsett.

It's similar to what ESPN Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley reported Saturday, but it's worth mentioning again in case it got lost in the news shuffle. The Ravens are clearly interested in re-signing Forsett and may have only cut him because he was the lone running back on the team that wasn't subject to waivers. Forsett is likely fielding other calls from teams, but as long as he didn't feel disrespected by being cut, it sounds like he could be back in Baltimore soon.
Sep 4 - 11:20 AM

ESPN's Jamison Hensley said "no one should be surprised" if free agent RB Justin Forsett re-signs with the Ravens this week.

Forsett was a surprise cut Saturday, but it is possible it was only a short-term move. Considering Buck Allen, Terrance West, and Kenneth Dixon would all be subjected to waivers if cut, Forsett could have been the running back the Ravens were most confident in getting back after making some roster moves early this week. They could also choose to bring him back if he is still available after veteran contracts guarantee Week 1. West and Allen look like they will form a committee right now, but the depth chart is still fluid.

Ravens released RB Justin Forsett.

Some called the idea crazy, but it's not surprising for a half-rebuilding team with three intriguing young backs in Terrance West, Kenneth Dixon and Buck Allen. Forsett still has something to offer as a change-of-pace back who catches passes, but was miscast as a starter following his flukish 2014. It shouldn't take him long to find a new home, but the 1.5-year chairmanship of the career committee member's footballing is through. ESPN's Jamison Hensley suggested Forsett could be back with the Ravens, perhaps after veteran contracts guarantee Week 1.
Sep 3 - 4:01 PM

Justin Forsett didn't have any yards on two carries in Baltimore's third preseason game.

He managed two catches for 14 yards. Forsett started, but the Ravens had a heavy rotation with their first-team offense. His veteran status makes him the favorite for early-down work despite his nondescript preseason. Baltimore's running back situation should be avoided for fantasy purposes.
