Free agent RB Justin Forsett announced his retirement from the NFL after nine seasons.
Forsett, 31, was a seventh-round pick of the Seahawks in 2008 and made it much longer than anyone anticipated after he measured 5'8/194 and ran 4.62 coming out of Cal. He bounced around the league, spending much of his time as a Gary Kubiak favorite in Houston, Baltimore, and Denver. Forsett's career year came with the 2014 Ravens, when he rushed for 1,266 yards and eight touchdowns and caught 44 balls for 263 yards. It was his only 1,000-yard rushing season. Forsett never topped 641 yards in any other year. Wed, May 3, 2017 10:27:00 AM

Free agent Justin Forsett said he'll make a decision on retirement "in a month or so."

The 31-year-old will take the next month to decide. Forsett said he already has plans for his post-playing career including traveling, writing a book and working as a motivational speaker. "A lot of guys let football be their identity," he said. "I’ve never let football be my identity or who I am." Forsett spent time with three different teams last season, amassing 291 yards and one score in nine games.

Justin Forsett rushed 22 times for 90 yards Week 17 against the Raiders.

Forsett was mostly bottled up outside of a 64-yard run off the right side in which he broke a couple tackles in the secondary. Still, Forsett out-snapped and out-touched Devontae Booker while operating as the clear lead back, but that situation is certain to change in the near future. C.J. Anderson will be back healthy next season, and Forsett is unlikely to be re-signed with coach and benefactor Gary Kubiak set to resign. If Forsett wants to suit up next season, which is not a given, he will likely have to settle for a one-year deal in a backup role.

Justin Forsett rushed five times for 11 yards in the Broncos' Week 16 loss to the Chiefs.

He didn't catch a pass. Forsett and Devontae Booker continue to split work right down the middle in Denver's backfield, leaving neither as a fantasy option. Forsett has been the better player since he joined the team, but it hasn't translated to box-score numbers. He'll be an RB3 next week vs. Oakland.
Mon, Dec 26, 2016 10:32:00 AM

Justin Forsett rushed 10 times for 37 yards in the Broncos' Week 15 loss to the Patriots, adding four receptions for 16 additional yards.

Forsett got the start, and was the clear leader of the Broncos' backfield. He out-touched Devontae Booker 14-8, out-gaining him 53-33. It was hardly a gangbusters effort, but something coach Gary Kubiak will take as he sorts out his nonexistent running game. Forsett should get the call again on Christmas day against the Chiefs. He'll be an RB3 for that one.
Sun, Dec 18, 2016 08:00:00 PM

Justin Forsett rushed six times for 17 yards in the Broncos' 13-10, Week 14 loss to the Titans.

He added three catches for 18 yards. It's nothing to write home about, but it's notable that Forsett out-touched Devontae Booker 9-5 in Forsett's debut with the team. Booker managed just one yard on three carries, adding two catches for 10 yards. Booker didn't receive a carry after halftime. At the end of the day, Booker won the snap battle 29-26, so this was virtually a 50-50 split. Forsett lost a fumble on his very first carry, but the Broncos stuck with the veteran and trusted him in pass protection especially. The Broncos' run game flat out didn't work on Sunday, and Trevor Siemian threw the ball 51 times. Forsett and Booker will likely split the load again next week at home against the Patriots. Neither will be more than a desperate flex play.
Sun, Dec 11, 2016 05:06:00 PM

Justin Forsett said 99 percent of the Broncos' offense is the same as the system he ran under Gary Kubiak in Baltimore.

"You gotta be patient with decisive decision-making," Forsett said. "I love it because it gives you a lot of options and freedom that some of the other schemes don’t allow you to have." The familiarity should allow Forsett to take on a big role right out of the gate, with Kubiak expecting him to "split" work with Devontae Booker this week against the Titans. Forsett cannot be trusted in the starting lineup in his first game with Denver, but he needs to be added in all leagues.

Coach Gary Kubiak said Justin Forsett will play Week 14 against the Titans and "split" the running back work with Devontae Booker.

Forsett was just claimed off waivers on Monday, but he knows Kubiak's offense after playing for him with the Texans earlier in his career. Booker has averaged a pitiful 2.80 YPC in the five games since taking over as the Broncos' starter, and it appeared Kapri Bibbs was getting set to overtake him before landing on I.R. earlier this week. Neither back is a great Week 14 fantasy option.
Wed, Dec 7, 2016 02:53:00 PM

Broncos claimed RB Justin Forsett off waivers from the Lions.

The move became necessary insurance when Kapri Bibbs suffered a high ankle sprain, but it's not out of the question that Forsett assumes a legitimate role in Denver's backfield in the near future. Devontae Booker has struggled mightily in five straight games (2.80 YPC), while Forsett has full knowledge of Kubiak's offense after playing for him in Baltimore and enjoying the best year of his career with Kubiak coordinating the Ravens' 2014 offense.

Lions released RB Justin Forsett.

Forsett had been a healthy scratch the last few weeks. He wasn't needed behind Theo Riddick, Dwayne Washington, and Zach Zenner. Forsett has ties to Broncos HC Gary Kubiak, but seems unlikely to resurface this late in the season.

Justin Forsett was a healthy scratch Week 11 against the Jaguars.

With everyone back healthy, Forsett is behind clear starter Theo Riddick, Dwayne Washington, and Zach Zenner. He does not need to be rostered in any format.
Sun, Nov 20, 2016 11:36:00 AM

ESPN Lions reporter Michael Rothstein does not believe Justin Forsett will "get much work" if Theo Riddick and Dwayne Washington return this week.

Washington is expected back after getting in a full practice Wednesday, and Riddick should return after practicing on a limited basis. Their returns should push Forsett and Zach Zenner back down the depth chart, although Zenner might have earned a bigger role with his play the last couple weeks. Aside from Riddick, this is not a backfield to trust even in a good matchup against the Texans.
Thu, Oct 27, 2016 11:33:00 AM

Justin Forsett rushed eight times for 33 yards in the Lions' Week 7 win over the Redskins, adding two receptions for 15 additional yards.

Zach Zenner started in Theo Riddick and Dwayne Washington's continued absence, but rotated pretty evenly with Forsett. Zenner got his veteran backfield mate on snaps, but Forsett had more touches (10-9) and more yards (48-29). With at least one of Riddick and Washington likely to return next Sunday, Forsett won't be on the RB3 radar.
Sun, Oct 23, 2016 04:55:00 PM

Justin Forsett rushed five times for five yards Week 6 against the Rams.

Forsett lost a yard on his first carry as a Lion, and it did not get much better from there. He played well behind Zach Zenner Sunday, but his role in the offense should grow as he learns the playbook. He is a hold in 12-team leagues.
Sun, Oct 16, 2016 06:25:00 PM

Justin Forsett and Zach Zenner are expected to split carries in Sunday's Week 6 game against the Lions.

Theo Riddick (ankle) has already been ruled out and it looks like the Lions will also be without Dwayne Washington (foot, ankle) for the second straight week. Forsett signed with the team a few days ago after averaging 3.2 yards per carry in a stint with Baltimore earlier this year. Zenner has shown flashes over the past two preseasons but only has 10 carries for 21 rushing yards this year. This is a situation fantasy owners would be wise to avoid.
