Justin Forsett breaks away from the pack
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Even though he rushed for 95 yards, Justin Forsett's performance Week 7 against the Falcons may seem a little underwhelming to Fantasy owners given that he was the CBSSports.com Start of the Week. After all, he didn't score a touchdown or catch a pass after contributing in both of those areas in previous weeks.

But even more encouraging than his actual production in Week 7 is the fact that he carried the ball 23 times, nearly three times as often as any other Ravens running back. That's a starter's workload, and by giving it to him, the Ravens confirmed once and for all that they see Forsett filling that role. It may have seemed like a given thanks to Forsett's production, but he actually had one fewer carry than Bernard Pierce in Week 6 and split the workload almost evenly with Pierce and Lorenzo Taliaferro in Week 5. Pierce did vulture a touchdown from Forsett in this one, but eight carries for 21 yards confirm he's now only second in the pecking order.

With this performance, Forsett only deserves more of your trust going forward, not less. Keep him active for what's actually a favorable matchup Week 8 at Cincinnati.

Forsett's longest carry went for 21 yards. He had no catches but was targeted once. Forsett has now rushed for 206 yards in his last two games.

Justin Forsett facing his best matchup yet
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Ravens running back Justin Forsett has been a revelation this season, topping double digits in Fantasy scoring in four of six games so far. Fantasy owners should be pleased, then, to see the Falcons on the schedule for the Ravens in Week 7,  as they have been the league's worst defense against running backs this season.

The Falcons have just been carved up by running backs, as they are allowing 190.3 all-purpose yards to them through six games. And, primary running backs have absolutely flourished against the Falcons, averaging 18.8 Fantasy points on 22.2 touches per game.

There are still some questions about how many carries the Ravens want to give Forsett, as he actually had one fewer than Bernard Pierce a week ago. However, He has managed to remain productive even while splitting carries, so there is little reason to think he won't be able to take advantage of a vulnerable Falcons defense.

It has taken a while for Forsett to earn Fantasy owners' trust, but he should have it at this point. With such an enticing matchup on the way, Forsett should be active in all leagues for Week 7.

Justin Forsett pulling away from other Ravens RBs
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Justin Forsett was once again the most effective of the Ravens running backs in what seemed to become less of a timeshare Week 6 at Tampa Bay. No, he didn't lead the trio in touches -- Bernard Pierce did -- but he did the most with his, picking up 111 yards on 14 carries.

And Pierce may not have had so many touches if the Ravens didn't put the game away with four touchdowns in the first quarter. Of Pierce's 15 carries, nine came in the second half. Of Forsett's 14, only four did.

Though Pierce found the end zone on a 4-yard run in the third quarter, he ran for just 32 yards in all and is now averaging 3.7 yards per carry this season compared to Forsett's 6.4.

Lorenzo Taliaferro, if you're wondering, was a complete afterthought by comparison, rushing twice for 29 yards and catching two passes for 18. If Forsett is the go-to guy and Pierce is the run-out-the-clock guy, Taliaferro's role may be the kind that doesn't add up to anything in Fantasy.

Clearly, Forsett is must-own in Fantasy, but other than having Pierce as a handcuff option, I'm running out of reasons to stash either of the Ravens' other two running backs.

Ravens' Justin Forsett leads the way Week 6
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Ravens running back Justin Forsett led the way on the ground Week 6.

Forsett gained 111 yards on 14 carries. Despite the strong game on the ground, Forsett was not targeted in the passing game. Though Forsett wound up being the primary option, Bernard Pierce wound up scoring a late touchdown. At the end of the third quarter, Pierce plunged in from 4 yards out. 

Forsett will hope to find paydirt Week 7 against the Falcons.
