2015 Outlook: Solid/Safe PickLast updated on Nov-16-2015 by Shawn Childs
UPDATE (11/16): After his breakout 2014 season, Forsett has been very underwhelming. PPR owners are thankful for his 31 receptions and 153 receiving yards, but being limited to two rushing TDs through nine games is a concern. Forsett lacks those big scoring Fantasy performances that Fantasy owners often need to survive. With guys like Antonio Brown and Julio Jones sometimes scoring 40 or more points in a single contest, the steady yardage and reception totals leave a lot to be desire. Forsett is a dependable RB2 in PPR and a preferable flex option for standard league owners.
After being overlooked early in his career due his size (5'8" and 190 lbs.) and durability concerns, Forsett was gift-wrapped a starting job due to the Ray Rice incident last fall. Justin set career highs in rushing attempts (235), rushing yards (1,266), TDs (eight), and catches (44). His only negative was his six yards gained per catch. Over the last seven weeks of the season, Forsett had four 100-yard rushing games (three at home) with two games with two TDs. His best game was 190 combined yards against the Saints plus he delivered 146 combined yards in the playoffs against the Patriots. On the year, Justin averaged 5.4 yards per rush with five games with 20 or more touches. His 2014 success will draw interest in the fantasy market, but he still set isn't built to be a workhorse back plus Forsett will turn 30 this season. I expect him to get about 15 touches per game this year, which would be a 15 percent drop in opportunity. His experience and quickness are the keys to his upside again in 2015. Last year Justin was the 8th-highest scoring RB in the Fantasy Football World Championship leagues. His projected opportunity points to him being a steady RB2 in PPR leagues.
