Source: RB Justin Forsett intends to re-sign with Ravens

ESPN - [Full Article]

The Baltimore Ravens have agreed to re-sign running back Justin Forsett, who was released by the team Saturday in the cut-down to the 53-player roster limit, a source told ESPN.

The Ravens plan to sign Forsett and officially add return man Devin Hester while placing safety Matt Elam and defensive end Carl Davis on injured reserve, the source said.

Fantasy Impact:

We had a report that Forsett never left the team's RB1 spot on the depth chart despite being cut. Terrance West and Javorius Allen should also see work for the Ravens along with Forsett. Some who follow the team speculate injured RB Kenneth Dixon will eventually take over the RB1 role, possibly this year. There are a lot of moving parts to the Ravens RB situation.

Per his agent, Johnson will sign with the Giants Monday. He was released by the Ravens on Saturday.

The Giants are adding an insurance policy at quarterback with backup Ryan Nassib entering the final year of his rookie contract.

Devin Hester worked out for the Baltimore Ravens earlier this offseason. Once they announced their 53 man roster on Saturday, people immediately realized the Ravens did not have a returner. That suggested the Ravens were at least close to signing Hester. According to Adam Schefter, the Ravens will sign Hester to a one-year deal.

Hester will return kicks and punts for the Ravens. Last season, the Ravens did not have a good return game. There were other issues that caused the Ravens to have one of their worst seasons since moving to Baltimore, but their return game was one of them. Hester should stabilize their return game.

Ravens cut Justin Forsett, Terrance West is the 'presumed starter'

Saturday, September 3, 2016, 5:11pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

Terrance West becomes presumed starting running back for Ravens after surprise release of Justin Forsett. Javorius Allen is the only other healthy and experienced running back.

Related players: Kenneth Dixon

Fantasy Impact:

The Ravens beat writers called Forsett the "presumed starter" all summer, so this move comes out of left field, though it does make some sense since the Ravens are not expected to contend for a Super Bowl this season. In the preseason, West rushed for 101 yards and two touchdowns on 25 carries (4.0 YPC), while Allen gained a measly 43 yards on 21 totes (2.0 YPC) after averaging 3.8 YPC last year. He's a fine pass-catcher, however, so the duo could form a tandem while Dixon (22 carries, 107 yards, 4.9 YPC) gets healthy.

Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (finger) back at practice

Saturday, September 3, 2016, 12:18pm

Baltimore Sun - [Full Article]

Three projected starters in tight end Dennis Pitta, left guard John Urschel and nose tackle Brandon Williams were among five players who returned to Ravens practice on Saturday morning.

Fantasy Impact:

Pitta had not practiced since Aug. 1 when he broke a finger on his right hand in a scuffle. With the season-ending Achilles tear suffered by Benjamin Watson in a preseason game against the Detroit Lions on Aug. 27, and Darren Waller and Nick Boyle to begin serving multiple-game suspensions, the presence of Pitta – who had a red, non-contact jersey tucked into the rear waistband of his shorts – was a welcome sight for the team. Second-year tight end Maxx Williams also returned, from an unspecified ailment, the story said.

Ravens RB Justin Forsett says he's 100-percent

Wednesday, August 31, 2016, 5:40pm

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Ravens running back Justin Forsett became a late bloomer in NFL circles two years ago, when he rushed for 1,266 yards during his first season in Baltimore. Now approaching 31 and coming back from a broken arm that shortened his 2015 campaign, Forsett is ready to build on what he did in 2014.

Appearing Wednesday on PFT Live on NBC Sports Radio and NBCSN, Forsett said he’s 100 percent again. He also said that he’s feeling great and fresh because, for most of his early years, he didn’t have the same wear and tear that other running backs experience. He also has noticed something positive about being an experience (i.e., older) player in the NFL.

Fantasy Impact:

The Ravens took a bit of a hit at the position with Kenneth Dixon missing the next couple of weeks. Some who follow the team feel Dixon will eventually claim the RB1 spot but for now it looks to be Forsett again. Javorius Allen will also be in the mix as will Terrance West.
