Lions' Justin Forsett: Receives just five carries
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Forsett carried five times for five yards Sunday against the Rams and was unable to secure his only target.

It was uncertain whether Forsett or Zach Zenner would lead the Lions' ground attack Sunday, but the latter wound up out-touching the veteran 14-5. However, Forsett was the only running back to get a look through the air, suggesting he may retain a role on passing downs even if Dwayne Washington (ankle) is able to return by Week 7 and replace Zenner as the early-down back. If Theo Riddick (ankle) also returns, though, that notion goes directly out the window.

Lions' Justin Forsett: Will split backfield touches
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forsett is expected to split backfield touches with Zach Zenner on Sunday against the Rams, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Signed earlier this week in light of the Lions' plethora of backfield injuries, Forsett reportedly picked up the offense quickly and was expected to get plenty of playing time with Theo Riddick (ankle) out and Dwayne Washington (ankle) doubtful. It seems likely that Zenner could get the goal-line touches, as he grabbed a few when the other backs were healthy, though the Lions getting that close is no guarantee.

Lions' Justin Forsett: Legitimate option to replace Riddick
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forsett is a candidate to replace Theo Riddick as the Lions' starting running back for Sunday's matchup with the Rams, the Detroit Free Press reports.

Although rookie Dwayne Washington (ankle) is technically listed as questionable and therefore appears to have a chance of playing, he wasn't healthy enough to practice until Friday and may not be ready come kickoff. Meanwhile, Forsett seems to have picked up the Lions' offense swiftly. "It doesn't take long," said head coach Jim Caldwell regarding the ability of a running back to relate one offensive system to another. However, Riddick himself only received about 10 carries per game as the Lions' lead back with either Washington or Zach Zenner around to steal at least a few totes, not to mention Golden Tate, who recorded three carries of his own against the Eagles last week. Thus, regardless of who is active, no single Lions running back in particular appears in line for significant offensive production against a formidable Rams defensive front.

Lions' Justin Forsett: Signing with Lions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forsett is signing with the Lions on Tuesday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

As expected, Forsett will join a Detroit team that recently lost Ameer Abdullah (IR-foot) for at least eight weeks and Dwayne Washington (ankle) for an unknown span. The 30-year-old was released by Baltimore after a Week 4 healthy scratch, finishing with 31 carries for 98 yards (3.2 YPC) and 11 catches for 36 more in three games. Forsett doesn't figure to get much passing-down work so long as Theo Riddick stays healthy, but there may be some opportunities in the running game, at least until Washington returns. Zach Zenner replaced Washington as Detroit's power back in Sunday's 24-23 win over the Eagles, scraping out just nine yards on seven carries. With significant targets and goal-line carries both unlikely to be part of the equation, Forsett holds minimal fantasy appeal for Sunday's matchup with Los Angeles. Riddick will likely retain the starting job.

Justin Forsett: Scheduled to visit Lions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forsett is expected to meet with the Lions on Monday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The Lions' backfield has been hit hard with injuries, giving Forsett a decent chance at playing time if he can secure a contract. Theo Riddick and Zach Zenner are the only healthy backs heading into Week 5, and while Dwayne Washington could return from his high ankle sprain relatively soon, Forsett likely offers more.
