Ravens Beat: RB Justin Forsett enters the camp as the 'clear lead dog,' 'his job to lose'

Baltimore Ravens - [Full Article]

Coming off a broken arm that cut his season short last year, Ravens RB Justin Forsett returned to summer workouts as the clear lead dog. He’s healthy once again and just two years removed from a Pro Bowl season. Still, Forsett will have to fend off talented younger competition, especially after his average yards per carry dropped from 5.4 yards in 2014 to 4.2 yards last season. He has to prove himself once again, but it’s his job to lose.

Fantasy Impact: 

Forsett's YPC (4.25) was better than Javorius Allen's (3.75), but the rookie showed good receiving chops, hauling in 45 catches for 353 yards and two touchdowns. Allen was the #6 RB in standard formats (#3 in PPR) from Week 11 to Week 17, while Forsett was sidelined with a wrist injury. Forsett was #17 in standard and #12 in PPR through the first 10 weeks. According to HC John Harbaugh, the two will compete for touches in 2016. Rookie Kenneth Dixon is another potential headache for Forsett owners.
