"Definitely, this is a great place, a great organization," he told the Baltimore Sun. "It's hard not to want to be here. Definitely, I'm sure after the season sometime they'll get something done. I would love to sign here. I've been waiting my whole career to find a home somewhere, to not have to move every offseason. So, what would be nice."
Forsett is 97 yards short of 1,000 on the season and has scored seven touchdowns in emerging as the featured back in the wake of the Ray Rice suspension. Forsett exploded for 182 yards and two scores in the Monday night defeat of New Orleans.
Now he's leading the
"It's crazy, man," he told the Seattle Times. "You think about where I was this time last year, mostly doing a lot of scout-team work and coming in to play every once in a while. To just get the opportunity when I thought I would never get it again, it's a blessing."
Quarterback Joe Flacco said Forsett is "not letting the guy tackle him in the hole with his arms or anything like that. He's breaking those little things."
Forsett, who leads the league with 12 rushes of 20-plus yards, plays the Chargers in Week 13.
Forsett received 22 carries and rumbled for 182 yards and a pair of touchdowns, by far the best performance of his season. He did that against a Saints defense that had allowed just two rushing touchdowns in the previous four games, and he now has four touchdowns in his last two.
Forsett had to deal with splitting carries early in the season, but at this point has pretty convincingly established himself as the team's top option. He is now averaging 5.8 yards per carry for the season, while the team's other backs are averaging just 3.9 overall.
Forsett has a few tough matchups on the way down the stretch, but that probably doesn't matter at this point. The Chargers, Baltimore's Week 13 opponent, have allowed no running back to gain 100 yards over the last three games, but Forsett seems like a decent bet to end that streak at this point. He should be active in all Fantasy formats moving forward.
Forsett averaged a whopping 8.3 yards per carry as he burst through big holes in Rob Ryan's blitzing defense. Forsett ran untouched on his 20-yard, fourth-quarter touchdown. He squirted through the line for a 13-yard score in the second quarter.
Forsett caught both his targets for 8 yards. Up to seven touchdowns this season, he'll face the Chargers in Week 13.
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.
