Summary

Forsett was one of many Baltimore skill players who lost his season due to injury. He missed the final six games with a broken forearm but is already said to be back to 100%. He should have every opportunity to keep the starting role as the rest of the depth chart is filled with rather inexperienced players. One those players, though, is rookie Kenneth Dixon out of Louisiana Tech. Dixon has the versatility to be a future starter in the league and can be insurance if the now over-30 Forsett is injured again or ineffective. Forsett is an interesting case in the "running backs over 30" discussion. He'll turn 31 this season, but he has far less wear and tear on his body than the typical back of that age due to being mostly a third-down back for the majority of his career. Forsett had 41 receptions in his 10 games in 2015, which put him well on pace to surpass the 59 he had in 2014 before Marc Trestman came to town as offensive coordinator. Trestman is notorious for involving his backs in the receiving game, and Forsett's skill set is conducive to that kind of usage. If he can stay healthy, the prospects of a 70-reception season that many were forecasting him heading into 2015 are still quite realistic. (May 17)

Ravens | Justin Forsett expects to be bell cow (Wed Jul 27, 10:01 PM) - Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett expects to hang onto the starting job and do the bulk of the work at the running back position ahead of RBs Javorius Allen, Kenneth Dixon, Lorenzo Taliaferro and Terrance West. The team also has RB Trent Richardson (knee) competing for a roster spot. While Forsett might be optimistic, he is 31 and the team is leaning toward reducing his carries.

Our View: Forsett seems to have recovered from his broken arm, but that age is a concern to some. The veteran back has low mileage on his body as he didn't start getting a large workload in the pros until a couple of years ago. As the Ravens will reduce his carries a little we expect him to be more of an RB3 than the RB2 he might be if he got 20-25 carries every game.
