Justin Forsett (ankle, knee) is no longer listed on the injury report.
Forsett has rotated out more often than usual the last two weeks, averaging 14.5 carries during that span vs. 22.0 the previous three weeks. Perhaps knee and ankle issues were to blame. Forsett was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, a strong sign he's nearing 100 percent again ahead of Sunday's game at Houston. "I feel good," he said. "This is actually one of the best Wednesdays that I've had in a while. So, my body is feeling good, maintaining, feeling ready to go." Dec 18 - 9:22 AM

Justin Forsett blamed a stacked box for his disappointing 16-48-0 line against the Jaguars Sunday.

Forsett's 48 yards were his lowest since Week 9. "Their mindset coming in was to stop the run. ... They were a physical bunch. They've got a great front seven and they did a good job. The box and safeties were down, but it was a good challenge for us." Forsett also appeared to tweak his troublesome ankle in the first half. Practice reports will be worth watching, but he should bounce back as a high-end RB2 against the Texans in Week 16.
Dec 16 - 9:06 AM

Justin Forsett rushed for 48 yards on 16 carries in the Ravens' Week 15 win over the Jaguars.

Forsett had a mouthwatering matchup on paper, but the Jaguars have been playing better defense for the better part of two months now. This game was sloppy and dominated by five field goals and a special teams touchdown. Forsett should find more running room in Week 16 against the Texans provided he's healthy. Forsett has battled an ankle injury lately and briefly exited Sunday's game in the first half to be looked at by trainers. He'll be a borderline RB1/2.
Dec 14 - 4:49 PM

Playing through a knee injury, Justin Forsett rushed 13 times for 71 yards and a touchdown in Baltimore's Week 14 win over the Dolphins.

He added two catches for seven yards. Forsett was handled with care, ceding 11 touches to backups Lorenzo Taliaferro and Bernard Pierce. That's the bad news. The good news is, Forsett appeared healthy, averaging 5.5 yards per carry and ripping off a critical 44-yard run late in the fourth quarter. He should be good to go as at least a top-15 option against the Jaguars in Week 15.
Dec 7 - 5:18 PM

Justin Forsett (knee) is active for Week 14 against the Dolphins.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Forsett is ready for his "full workload" against a Dolphins' run defense that's been struggling in recent weeks. He can be fired up as an RB1. Inactive for the Ravens are WR Michael Campanaro, S Terrence Brooks, CB Rashaan Melvin, G/C Gino Gradkowski, G/T Jah Reid, TE Crockett Gillmore and DE DeAngelo Tyson.
Dec 7 - 11:30 AM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Justin Forsett (knee) "will play" Week 14 against the Dolphins.

As expected. The Ravens' plan all week was the hold Forsett out of practice Wednesday and Thursday before letting him get some reps Friday. They're just trying to manage his reps is his first season as a feature back. Forsett is safe to leave penned into lineups. He's our No. 8 running back this week.
Dec 7 - 9:03 AM

Justin Forsett (ankle) was limited in Friday's practice and is listed as questionable for Week 14.

Forsett is fully expected to face Miami despite the questionable tag. It's worth noting that his backup is Bernard Pierce, with Lorenzo Taliaferro as the third stringer. Forsett should be penciled into lineups as an RB1.
Dec 5 - 3:39 PM

Justin Forsett (knee) returned to practice Friday.

As expected. Forsett sat out Wednesday and Thursday, but remained upbeat about his chances of playing Week 14 against the Dolphins. Fire him up as an RB1. Miami has been shredded on the ground the past two weeks.
Dec 5 - 12:01 PM

Justin Forsett (knee) remained sidelined at Ravens practice Thursday.

Back-to-back DNPs raise a bit of an eyebrow, but Forsett described the missed reps as "rest" on Wednesday. We fully expect him to be ready for his regular role against the Dolphins. Forsett's status will be updated no later than Friday afternoon.
Dec 4 - 4:32 PM

The Baltimore Sun confirms Justin Forsett is "expected to start" and "have his usual workload" in Week 14 against the Dolphins despite missing Wednesday's practice with an ankle injury.

"Just resting up, regular soreness," Forsett stated Wednesday. "Especially coming into December, just trying to take care of the body and take care of the little nicks I've gotten over the course of the year." The Dolphins' run defense has sprung leaks recently, getting gashed by C.J. Anderson in Week 12 and by Chris Johnson on Monday night. Forsett will be a fantasy RB1.
Dec 3 - 8:19 PM

Justin Forsett (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

Forsett described it as "general soreness." He's expected to be fine for Week 14 against the Dolphins. Miami has been gashed by the run lately, surrendering over 300 yards on the ground to the Jets on Monday night. The matchup isn't as difficult as it may look on paper. Forsett is a strong RB1 option.
Dec 3 - 3:13 PM

Justin Forsett rushed 24 times for 106 yards and caught two passes for 17 yards in Sunday's Week 13 loss to the Chargers.

With chunk run after chunk run, Forsett went over 100 rushing yards for the third straight day. If you haven't realized by now, it's definitely not a fluke. With the Ravens' massive guards punishing people, Forsett expertly waits for holes in this Gary Kubiak scheme he knows so well and plows through them. Encouragingly, he also got two goal-line chances in this game -- although he couldn't quite cross the plane of the goal-line on either. Even in a very difficult matchup at Miami in Week 14, Forsett will be worth RB1 consideration.
Nov 30 - 4:37 PM

Impending free agent Justin Forsett said his preference is to re-sign with the Ravens.

It's going to a tricky contract negotiation as Forsett is a 29-year-old running back. He'll want to get paid after playing at a Pro Bowl level for just $730,000 this year, but that's not the way it works at the position. Although Forsett currently ranks third in rushing yards (903), first in YPC among running backs, first in carries of 20+ yards and seventh in PFF's Elusive Rating, he'll have to accept a short-term deal.
Nov 27 - 8:19 AM

Justin Forsett rushed for 182 yards and two touchdowns on 22 carries in the Ravens' 34-27, Week 12 win over the Saints on Monday night.

He added two catches for eight yards. Rob Ryan's Saints defense came into the night allowing 4.3 YPC, 11th-worst in the league. Meanwhile, Baltimore has the league's ninth-ranked rushing offense. The Ravens' mauling offensive line pushed the New Orleans front around all night, creating gaping holes for Forsett, who walked in untouched on his 13- and 20-yard touchdowns. His longest run of the night came on the Ravens' opening play, when Forsett busted through a mammoth hole for 38 yards. Forsett will remain an RB1 next week vs. San Diego.
Nov 24 - 11:39 PM

Justin Forsett rushed 20 times for 112 yards and two touchdowns in the Ravens' Week 10 win over the Titans.

Baltimore's offense was stuck in mud until about midway through the second quarter, when Forsett tied the game 7-7 on a nine-yard touchdown run where he beat Kamerion Wimbley around the left edge. The TD was Forsett's first since October 5. He scored again from 11 yards out late in the third frame, before icing the game with a 37-yard run down to the two-yard line in the fourth quarter. The Ravens have a Week 11 bye before facing the Saints in Week 12. Forsett has settled in as an every-week RB2 play in fantasy leagues of all kinds.
