Recent Game Summaries
2016 Week 7 vs WAS (8 / 33 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 15 / 0 rec)
Forsett did not start but pretty much split carries with Zenner as it looked like the Lions didn't alter anything they did on offense to tailor Forsett. Forsett started hot taking his first carry for four yards and then he caught a wheel route that went for seven yards and a first-down. He then had back-to-back carries that went for nine yards, the first coming on a misdirection to the left and the second coming on a delayed draw up the middle. Forsett caught another pass for seven yards when pressure flushed Stafford and Forsett was a safety valve. Forsett had four more carries; neither going for more than three yards, but realistically there was no room to run in the middle of the defense.
2016 Week 6 vs LA (5 / 5 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Forsett was signed mid-week and had a hard time getting going as a runner. However, it wasn't his fault as he realistically had nowhere to run on four of his carries which went for negative yardage. He had one run that went for positive yards and that went for nine, but he looked a little tentative running between the tackles. Forsett was mainly used to give Zenner a breather in this game as he only had five carries. Forsett also had one target out of the backfield, but he dropped the pass.
2016 Week 3 vs JAX (7 / 20 / 0 rush, 7 / 6 / 12 / 0 rec)
Justin Forsett looked ineffective against the Jaguars. Forsett's best play was a 12 yard gain on a screen pass that was negated by penalty. Terrence West is simpy better than Forsett. Forsett can not create his own yardage. Even on receptions out of the back field, Forsett looks unable to make defenders miss in space. Forsett looks slow and indecisive. Forsett also loses nearly every collision and is often falling or being driven backwards to finish his runs. In part his struggles are due to the offensive line. The Ravens have not been able to establish a run game and have almost forsaken running the ball between the tackles.
2016 Week 2 vs CLE (14 / 37 / 0 rush, 5 / 3 / 9 / 0 rec)
Justin Forsett again split carries and catches with Terrence West as the only two active running backs for the Ravens. The Ravens used the two backs interchangeably; trusting both catching the ball, in pass protection and in short yardage and goalline situations. The Ravens run game appears to lack confidence. The Ravens continue to use Forsett on pitch plays to the outside that are highly ineffective instead of running between the tackles. Forsett started the game and saw significantly more touches than West in the first half but failed to impress.
2016 Week 1 vs BUF (10 / 41 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 15 / 0 rec)
Justin Forsett was the Ravens starting running back but West and Forsett had nearly identical numbers in terms of touches and snaps. The two backs combined for 27 touches and nearly 100 total yards but it was a disappointing day for the Raven's ground game. Forsett made numerous nice runs to the outside but was unable to break into the open field. The Bills defense looked strong against the run and never allowed the run game to find its rhythm. Expect the Ravens to stay committed to the running the football and more efficiency from the backs.
Latest NewsBroncos | Justin Forsett will play in Week 14 (Wed Dec 7, 02:58 PM) - Denver Broncos RB Justin Forsett will be active for the team's Week 14 game and will share snaps with RB Devontae Booker, according to head coach Gary Kubiak. Our View: There's no need to learn the system as Forsett has his best season under Kubiak in 2014 with the Baltimore Ravens. He can step into a change-of-pace role for the Broncos on Sunday against the Titans. Forsett's workload will be similar to the one RB Kapri Bibbs (ankle) received before his injury.
link to story Broncos | Denver claims Justin Forsett (Mon Dec 5, 04:13 PM) - Free-agent RB Justin Forsett (Lions) was claimed by the Denver Broncos Monday, Dec. 5. Our View: Forsett has had an odd year to say the least. He was cut by the Ravens after camp, but the team brought him back. They later cut Forsett and the Lions picked him up. The Lions just cut him last week, so the Broncos have now picked him up. Forsett had a career-best 1,266 yards rushing under Gary Kubiak when the Broncos head coach was the OC of the Ravens in 2014. Watch to see if Forsett can outperform a disappointed Devontae Booker in the Broncos backfield.
link to story Lions | Detroit makes roster moves (Sat Dec 3, 04:33 PM) - Detroit Lions DE Armonty Bryant was activated from the suspended list Saturday Dec.3. Practice squad WR T.J. Jones was promoted to the active roster. The team also released CB Johnthan Banks and RB Justin Forsett. Our View: Forsett has been a healthy scratch for quite some time now. He couldn't make a dent in Detroit with one of the most RB-poor teams in the NFL. We can't imagine any team thinking he's a late-season answer.
link to story Lions | DeAndre Levy among Lions inactives (Thu Nov 24, 11:18 AM) - The Detroit Lions have declared OT Cornelius Lucas, LB DeAndre Levy, FS Don Carey, QB Jake Rudock, OG Joe Dahl, RB Justin Forsett, DL Khyri Thornton inactive for Week 12.
