Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 17: Justin Forsett
Justin Forsett had a bad game in Week 16. Should fantasy owners expect him to bounce back?
If you’re looking for a season-long add of the year, then look no further than Baltimore Ravens running back Justin Forsett. While Denver Broncos running back C.J. Anderson has probably helped more owners win fantasy titles than Forsett, the Ravens veteran has been the No. 8 fantasy back in PPR leagues. That’s better than Philadelphia Eagles back LeSean McCoy.
As alluded to, Forsett hasn’t been great lately with just 11 PPR fantasy points combined over the past two. This week, he’ll get an awesome matchup against the Cleveland Browns. The Cleveland offense has been a nightmare, so the Ravens will likely run the ball a lot in the second half. The Browns have also been beaten up on the ground in the past two weeks, allowing 203.5 yards per game to backs in that span.
Fantasy impact: Forsett will get plenty of touches and should be a solid RB1 this week. Start him.
