Summary

Justin Forsett is a very interesting case. At his age (he turns 30 in October), running backs are typically nearing the end of their careers. But Forsett has limited wear and tear on his body since he had never exceeded 118 carries in a season prior to last year. Forsett also has a very interesting coaching situation that will influence his 2015 season. He was a player who played in Gary Kubiak's system for multiple years. Based on his being without Kubiak, one might assume that his production will dip in 2015. However, new Offensive Coordinator Marc Trestman is a great offensive mind and generally designs his scheme so that his running backs are targeted on passing plays very often. In Trestman's two seasons in Chicago, Matt Forte caught 74 passes in 2013, which was a career high until he caught 102 passes last season. Forsett has shown the ability to catch passes, having been a third down back for the majority of his career. Between Trestman's scheme and the lack of proven pass-catchers on his team, Forsett could be used like Ray Rice in his prime (Rice exceeded 75 catches twice in a three-year span). (May 16)

Latest News

Ravens | Justin Forsett could see big workload (Wed Jul 29, 01:48 AM) - Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett is likely to see another substantial workload, as offensive coordinator Marc Trestman is a big believer in the running game, and the team will maintain the same zone blocking system they had last year under former offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak.

Our View: That's great news for Forsett. He's custom made for the zone-blocking system, and that's one of the reasons why he excelled last year. Forsett might be pulled near the goal line (Trestman LOVES to pass inside the 10), but he could catch 60 or more passes in this offense...in addition to rushing for over 1,000 yards. Forsett is a RB2 with RB1 upside for fantasy owners.
