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)

BAL | Rookie RB Kenneth Dixon impresses with quickness (Sun Jun 19, 06:13 PM) - Baltimore Ravens rookie running back Kenneth Dixon, a fourth-round pick this year, may have the quickest feet on the team according to BaltimoreRavens.com writer John Eisenberg.

Our View: Dixon's quickness is a thing to behold, although he's so quick that sometimes he'll trip himself up when making multiple moves in the open field. He's a rookie RB we like a lot in dynasty leagues. Dixon is going to compete for a spot behind starter Justin Forsett in 2016. He's competing with players like Javorius Allen, Lorenzo Taliaferro, Trent Richardson, and Terrance West for a spot. We feel Dixon could be the primary backup behind Forsett as soon as this year, and he's got starter's upside for the future.

Ravens | Three BAL RBs up for just one spot? (Wed Jun 15, 01:00 AM) - Baltimore Ravens RB Lorenzo Taliaferro might be competing with RB Terrance West and RB Trent Richardson for the No. 4 spot on the depth chart behind RBs Justin Forsett, Javorius Allen and Kenneth Dixon.

Our View: We think Taliaferro will be fine, as West hasn't impressed so far in his career and Trent Richardson is Trent Richardson. No matter what, this isn't the relevant part of the backfield battle. Forsett and Allen holding off Dixon is the part you want to watch. We lean towards Forsett, but Dixon isn't far behind. No matter what, right now there is little clarity and if you have to draft today, we'd say none of them are better than an RB4 because of it, though we expect Forsett or Dixon to take the lead and then put up RB3 numbers at the very worst.
