Posted March 15, 2013
Forsett signed Friday with the Jags.||||||| Forsett has played for Indianapolis (2008), Seattle (2008-11) and Houston (2012). He has 1,661 yards and eight touchdowns. He will compete for the backup job behind Maurice Jones-Drew.
Posted Oct. 04, 2010
Forsett had 19 carries for 65 yards in a 20-3 loss at St. Louis on Sunday.||||||| Forsett is getting most of the carries for the Seahawks, but with Seattle's offense struggling, he still hasn't found the end zone this year. He's unplayable in Week 5 anyway, with the Seahawks on bye.
Posted Sept. 27, 2010
Forsett rushed for 63 yards on 17 carries and added three catches for 31 yards in Sunday's 27-20 win over San Diego.||||||| Forsett finally received the majority of carries out of Seattle's backfield, and could be in line for a big game next week against St. Louis, especially in PPR leagues.
Posted Sept. 20, 2010
Forsett had eight carries for 44 yards in the Seahawks' 31-14 loss at Denver on Sunday.||||||| Somebody needs to get carries in Seattle, and Forsett looks like as good of a choice as anyone. Keep in mind, however, that he's merely a matchup play at this point. Don't get carried away by making him a regular.
Posted Sept. 13, 2010
Forsett got the start and rushed seven times for 43 yards in a win over San Francisco on Sunday.||||||| The Seahawks essentially have a running back by committee, though neither Julius Jones or Leon Washington stepp up.
