Justin Forsett stars once again
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Ravens running back Justin Forsett bounced back from a subpar showing with his best of the season in Week 10's 21-7 win over the Titans.

Forsett, who had just 38 yards on nine carries a week ago in a game the Ravens trailed for much of, got much more work Sunday, and made the most of it. He racked up 112 yards on 20 carries, and finished with his first two-touchdown game of the season.

Forsett has established himself as the unquestioned leader in the Ravens' backfield, and there is little reason to think he will be usurped at any point. Even though he did not have more than 14 carries in any of the first six games of the season, Forsett is on pace for 1,281 yards on the ground.

At this point, there shouldn't be any question as to whether you are starting Forsett. You can give a cursory glance to matchups, but he should be in there every week for you once the team returns from their bye with Week 12's matchup against the Saints.

Ravens' Justin Forsett totals 112 yards, two TDs in Week 10 win
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Ravens running back Justin Forsett rushed for more than 100 yards and two touchdowns during a 21-7 win Week 10 vs. Tennessee. It was the second multitouchdown game of his career. His only other multitouchdown game came in 2009.

Forsett helped tie the game at 7 in the second quarter with a 9-yard rushing touchdown. He then gave the Ravens the lead for good with a 11-yard touchdown run with 5:36 left in the third quarter.

He surpassed 100 rushing yards for the second time this season with a 37-yard gain -- his longest of the afternoon -- with 2:26 left in the game. Forsett just missed his third touchdown, as he was dragged down at the 2-yard line. Forsett was given another chance for his third touchdown, but he was stopped after a 1-yard gain. Quarterback Joe Flacco then took two kneel-downs to run out the clock.

Forsett finished with a team-high 112 rushing yards on 20 carries. He had no catches but was targeted once. The Ravens are on a bye Week 11 before returning to action Week 12 at New Orleans.

Justin Forsett hoping for early lead
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Ravens running back Justin Forsett has seen his role shrink a bit recently, but that could change in Week 10 against the Titans.

Forsett's workload peaked when he received 23 carries in Week 7, but he had just nine carries last week as the Ravens  played from behind most of the game. That shouldn't be the case in Week 10, as the Titans have spent plenty of time playing from behind. Opposing running backs are getting 28.6 carries per game against the Titans this season, and they rank 27th in the league in Fantasy points per game allowed to that position as a result.

The Ravens' running back situation has changed a few times this season, but Forsett seems firmly entrenched in his role as the lead guy. If they get up big early Sunday, he could see plenty of work, and makes for a solid Fantasy play in Week 10.

Ravens running backs show versatility
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Ravens running game didn't stand a chance Week 9 at Pittsburgh, not with Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger throwing for six touchdown for a second straight game. Justin Forsett and Lorenzo Taliaferro split carries almost evenly, but because the Ravens were forced to pass for virtually the entire second half, they combined for just 16. Forsett had nine for 38 yards, and Taliaferro had seven for 21.

But what the two lacked as rushers they made up for as receivers. Forsett was actually the Ravens' leading receiver with 67 yards on five catches -- a skill he hadn't shown since averaging 4.6 catches in the Ravens' first five games. Taliaferro, though clearly more of a traditional runner, pitched in 34 yards on three catches.

In other words, the low rushing totals for Forsett and Taliaferro are nothing to worry about in Fantasy. Both still got theirs, just in a different form. And though Forsett may have ceded more touches to Taliaferro in this one, the distribution of playing time wasn't even close. Forsett played 73 percent of the Ravens' snaps and remains the preferred option of the two. Taliaferro played 23 percent and is still more of a handcuff option.

Justin Forsett leads Ravens in rushing, receiving in Week 9 loss
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Ravens running back Justin Forsett rushed for a team-high 38 yards on nine carries and caught five of his eight targets for a team-high 67 receiving yards in Baltimore's 43-23 loss to Pittsburgh in Week 9.

The running game failed to get in a rhythm with the Steelers shooting out to a big lead in the second quarter, and Forsett received just nine of the 17 carries that went to running backs in the game. He continues to supplement his rushing performance with quality work in the passing game, and his 67 receiving yards Sunday represented a season high. It was the second time this season Forsett has topped 100 total yards in a game. He's set to face the Titans in Week 10.
