Week 12: at New Orleans Saints

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Baltimore comes into this game off their bye week, so everyone should be healed of their dings and nicks - look for Justin Forsett/Bernard Pierce/Lorenzo Taliaferro to be in fine fettle for this matchup down in the Big Easy. Two weeks ago Forsett did the bulk of the damage to Tennessee with 20/112/2 rushing, while Pierce (8/31/0 rushing) and Taliaferro (3/10/0) chipped in around the edges. To date, the Ravens' rushing attack is ranked 10th in the NFL averaging 124.1 yards per game, with a healthy 11 rushing scores punched in over 10 games played. The Saints' aura of invulnerability at home in N'Arlins has taken two hammer blows over the past two weeks, with a narrow 24-27 loss to San Francisco (34/144/2 rushing allowed that game) followed by a 10-27 drubbing at the hands of Cincinnati (36/186/0 rushing allowed). This defensive front has stumbled badly over the past two games, and is now ranked 19th in the NFL averaging 114.7 yards rushing allowed per game, with 10 rushing scores surrendered. Of late, they've played significantly worse than that mediocre ranking would indicate, though. Advantage, Baltimore.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 9 vs PIT (9 / 38 / 0 rush, 8 / 5 / 67 / 0 rec)

Justin Forsett never found the running room or consistent touches to establish a running game for Baltimore. Starting with his first attempt, the interior lineman of the Ravens were dominated. Osemele looked slow and overmatched while Monroe looked scared of James Harrison all game. Forsett ended the game as the Ravens' leading receiver because he was able to exploit the Steelers linebackers after the catch on check downs. Forsett did find some running room outside as the offensive line did a good job of sealing the edge for easy yardage. He followed Wagner's block on one such run for 8 yards and ran behind Jusczcyk for a big gain into the second level. Forsett was stopped on 3rd and short. It looked like he could have cut the run back outside and picked up the first down. Forsett looked like he was on the brink of breaking a long run to start the second half but never got the number of touches he should have. Forsett didn't catch a screen pass until midway through the 4th quarter, way too late given the Steelers' aggressive game plan.

2014 Week 10 vs TEN (20 / 112 / 2 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Justin Forsett had a huge game against the Titans through the Ravens' offensive struggles for much of the game. Forsett ran hard inside but couldn't find much room throughout most of the game. Forsett's first big run came on 4th and 1 from the 11. He caught the pitch from Flacco and outraced Wimbley around the edge for a touchdown. Forsett ran again in the red zone, this time behind a bulldozing wall on the Ravens' interior lineman, going almost untouched into the end zone again. Forsett continues to be a physical runner inside with many audible pops as he collided with defenders but he's also been very efficient runner to the outside. He ran outside for gains of 9, 13, and 7 around the outside as the Ravens tackles did well to seal the edge on each play. Following an interception Forsett took a pitch inside following Crocket Gilmore and finally broke into the open field for a gain of 37 down to the one yard line. Forsett got one more opportunity to score from the 1 but was stopped just short of his 3rd touchdown.

Ravens | Justin Forsett having dream season (Mon Nov 10, 01:16 PM) - Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett set career highs in the team’s Week 10 win over the Tennessee Titans, rushing 20 times for 112 yards and two touchdowns. Forsett now has a career-high five touchdown runs this year, and he also has single-season bests for carries (133) and rushing yards (721) on the season. Forsett played for offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak in Houston, and his style of slashing with a quick burst fits the Ravens system perfectly. Forsett entered Week 10 leading all running backs with 5.39 yards per carry, and he ranked fifth in rushing yards. “He’s the kind of guy that deserves it,” head coach John Harbaugh said. “When you watch him on tape, he has always been a playmaker, and now he’s getting an opportunity to prove that. He’s doing a great job with it.”

Our View: Fantasy owners are right there in a dream-like state with him. Forsett has always had the talent, but he's bounced around the NFL trying to find the right fit. He's found that with Kubiak, and it was a wise move for the team to add him when Kubiak came on board as the new offensive coordinator. Forsett is a low-end RB1 with upside.
