2015 Outlook: Solid/Safe PickLast updated on Jun-05-2015 by Shawn Childs
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.
Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett
Ravens running back Justin Forsett is coming off by far the best season of his career. He got his big pay day and turns 30 in October, however, this has not distinguished the fire Forsett runs with. "(I'm) still hungry, still ready to go out and fight," Forsett said. "Nothing is given to me. So I just got to go out there and prove to this organization that they made the right decision in keeping me. If my number's called, I'll be ready for it … I'm going on my eighth year, and my mindset is I don't ever want to be comfortable. I think as soon as you get comfortable, that's when bad things happen, and I want to make sure that I'm focused and my mind-set is that I got to go out there and continue to show that I deserve to be here."Fantasy Analysis:
Forsett is a very interesting fantasy prospect. He is coming off a great season but is a 30-year-old journeyman RB that has never seen the success he did last year. The change in offensive coordinator may be the most interesting factor. Last year he had Gary Kubiak who loves to run the ball. This season he has Marc Trestman who is pass happy but also loves utilizing his RBs in the passing attack. Forsett could lose some of his rushing value, yet improve his PPR value. That is as long as Buck Allen doesn't cut into his targets in the passing game. Forsett is currently being drafted as the RB14, which is right about where he belongs.
