Justin Forsett |Jacksonville Jaguars | RB
2013 Fantasy Football Outlook: The Jaguars surprised many with the selection of Denard Robinson coupled with the news that he will move to running back and should receive 10 to 15 touches a game. We will see whether Robinson will get that kind of run, but if he should fail Forsett should be the main backup to Maurice Jones-Drew.
Forsett has flashed start-worthy talent when given a chance to start in the league, as we saw him flourish in Seattle and even with the Texans last year. Don’t look to Forsett on draft day, but keep an eye on him throughout the season and the Robinson situation.

Summer of 2011: Fantasy Projections
While Justin Forsett will probably never come into a season as a teams starting tailback, but he could still find success off the waiver wire if Marshawn Lynch should sustain an injury. Two years ago we saw Forsett help fantasy owners when Julius Jones was out, and I’m still ticked to this day that then Coach Jim Mora Jr. wouldn’t ride out the season with Forsett as the starting tailback.
Anyway, time has moved on but Forsett still remains as a hard running undersized back that is viewed as more of change of pace runner coming into a season. Over the past two off-seasons, the Seahawks have made a commitment to upgrading their offensive line, so this group should be better than the line Forsett had to work with two years ago. Look to Forsett as a must have waiver wire pickup should something happen to Lynch but don’t acquire him at your draft, unless you’re in a 20 team league.

Justin Forsett proved to be the top talent at running back for the Seahawks in 2009. While Forsett can be a very dangerous fantasy back, expect Seattle to bring someone into start in front of him.
2010 Fantasy Football Outlook
2009 Fantasy Year In Review: Every time Justin Forsett had a chance to show his stuff last year he was a solid performer on the field. His two highlight games came when Julius Jones was out with injury as he posted big games against the Cardinals and Rams.
Unfortunately Jim Mora Jr. doesn’t have a brain in his head and couldn’t tell that Forsett should have continued starting upon Jones return. This sad state of events hurt Forsett’s chances to be a true fantasy stud down the stretch, as he continued to play well when he received a chance to touch the football.
2010 NFL Fantasy Football Player Rankings: Now that bone head is fired and Pete Carroll is the new coach of the team, at least he is giving Forsett an open competition to win the job. If this situation is truly open than expect Forsett to be the teams starting tail back come week one.
Forsett is clearly more explosive than Jones and that is self evident by his 5.4 yard per carry average last season. Even though Forsett is a little undersized he is very hard to get a hold of and does a good job at getting away from would be tacklers.
Winning the job would make Forsett a decent flex play draft pick for your fantasy team as he has game breaking ability. It also doesn’t hurt that the Seahawks have the second easiest schedule to run against in the NFL this season. As long as Forsett is healthy coming into the season, I would recommend you nab him up during some point at your draft.
