Ravens say Justin Forsett big part of plans

ESPN - [Full Article]

A broken arm ended running back Justin Forsett's season on Sunday, but apparently not his Baltimore Ravens career. Ravens coach John Harbaugh talked about Forsett as if he remains part of the team's plans in 2016.

"I would expect Justin back next year full-speed, ready to go," Harbaugh said. "He’s under contract and a big part of what we’re doing going forward."

Forsett signed a three-year, $9 million deal with the Ravens this year, but only the $2.1 million signing bonus and his 2015 salary ($900,000) are guaranteed.

Forsett was off to one of his best starts of the season Sunday, gaining 26 yards on four carries (6.5-yard average) before breaking his right arm.

Fantasy Impact: 

It wasn't considered a sure bet that Forsett would be back. Forsett will turn 31 next season, Baltimore can create salary-cap room by cutting him this offseason or next, and the Ravens drafted running backs (Javorius Allen and Lorenzo Taliaforro) in each of the past two drafts.
