Schefter: Justin Forsett to re-sign with the Ravens

Thursday, March 12, 2015, 2:56pm

Adam Schefter, Twitter - [Full Article]

Ravens are giving RB Justin Forsett a three-year deal, per source.

Fantasy Impact:

Forsett should see his PPR upside increase due to new OC Marc Trestman's tendency to use his running backs in the passing game. Under Trestman, Matt Forte caught 176 passes in the last two seasons, including 102 catches in 2014. Forsett caught 44 passes last season, and could potentially see that number double if he's the RB1 for the Ravens in 2015. However, the loss of OC Gary Kubiak is likely to hurt the Ravens’ running game. As the #8 RB in both standard and PPR formats in 2014, he'll likely hold RB2-type draft value if he continues as the lead back in Baltimore.

Scouting Report

Matt Forte - Week 17 vs. Minnesota

Matt Forte isn't having a career year in rushing, but he's having one of the best receiving seasons by a back in NFL history. In fact, he's just eight receptions short of the NFL single-season record for receptions by a running back (101). He's also just 13 rushing yards shy of 1,000 and could join an exclusive club. If he gets 1,000 rushing yards and 100 catches he'll be the second player in NFL history (LaDainian Tomlinson is the first) to reach those milestones in a single season.

In short, Forte is a baller. He'll have a good chance at reaching those milestones this week against the Minnesota Vikings. The last time he played Minnesota he finished with 175 total yards. The Vikings have been very favorable to backs this season.

Forte is a must-start option.
