Forsett carried seven times for 20 yards and caught six of seven targets for another 12 yards in Sunday's 19-17 win over the Jaguars.

EDGE Analysis

Forsett had a minimal impact Sunday, as he averaged 2.9 yards per carry and an unimpressive two yards per catch. The fact that he continues to see plenty of looks in the passing game is promising, but Terrance West continues to see double-digit carries on a weekly basis and has fared much better in terms of efficiency. The roles of the two backs will bear watching as the season moves on, but a similar distribution of touches should be expected in Week 4 versus the Raiders.

Forsett carried 14 times for 37 yards and added nine yards while grabbing three of five targets in Sunday's win over the Browns.

EDGE Analysis

Forsett led the Ravens in carries and targets out of the backfield, but he managed just 2.7 yards per touch versus a sub-par Browns defensive unit. The veteran has started each of the first two games, but he has ceded a large chunk of the workload to Terrance West, who out-gained him on three fewer carries Sunday. Forsett's struggles, combined with the current workload split, and even the eventual return of rookie Kenneth Dixon, have called into question his ability to be relied upon as a weekly fantasy producer heading into Week 3's matchup versus an improved Jaguars defensive unit.

Forsett turned 10 carries into a team-leading 41 rushing yards while catching all three of his targets to add 15 more in Sunday's 13-7 win over the Bills.

EDGE Analysis

Forsett saw a nearly even split with Terrance West (14 touches), but was considerably more effective on a per-play basis. His superior hands and elusiveness suggest Forsett is probably the running back to own in Baltimore, but this game added little clarity to the situation. Expect both backfield options to perform better against a porous Browns defense next week.

With Javorius Allen inactive Sunday, ESPN's Jamison Hensley indicates that Forsett should get most of the Ravens' snaps on third down Sunday against the Bills.

EDGE Analysis

Forsett -- who previously indicated that he is slated to start -- and Terrance West are thus the Ravens' only two active backs Sunday, which sets the stage for the duo to divvy up carries, with the team likely to roll with a hot hand approach.

Forsett said Wednesday he is still the Ravens' starting running back, ESPN's Jamison Hensley reports.

EDGE Analysis

Head coach John Harbaugh warned against relying on the team's depth chart, as the coaching staff has no say regarding the order players are listed in. Forsett is a more reliable source, confirming that he's still expected to start, though Terrance West and Javorius Allen are also candidates to handle significant roles. Forsett was released over the weekend, but it turns out the transaction was merely intended to provide the team with a couple extra days for roster decisions. Forsett re-signed Monday on a nearly identical contract, with the Ravens throwing in a small incentive bonus to thank him. The transaction may be a non-concern, but the competition for touches remains a very real one. On a more optimistic note, Forsett will start his season with a matchup against a Buffalo front seven that's full of question marks.

Forsett re-signed with the Ravens on Monday, ESPN's Jamison Hensley reports.

EDGE Analysis

As anticipated, Forsett re-signed with the Ravens on Monday, which allows him to avoid any missed time at practice. It's unclear if the move will free up cap room, as it's possible the Ravens and Forsett simply reached an agreement to provide the team with a couple more days to make difficult roster decisions. Either way, Forsett is expected to have a key role Week 1 against the Bills, and he's still the favorite to start at running back. However, the Ravens figure to deploy a committee, with Terrance West, Javorius Allen and eventually Kenneth Dixon (knee) also candidates to get significant run. Dixon may ultimately provide the biggest threat to Forsett's role, but the rookie will likely miss at least the first two games of the season.

Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun relays that Forsett's anticipated re-signing with the Ravens is "close to (a) formality at this point."

EDGE Analysis

Per the report, such an outcome was the Ravens' plan "all along," with the move to release Forsett made in the name of roster flexibility. Moreover, per the Baltimore Sun, Forsett is on track to have a key role in the team's offense this Sunday against the Bills, with Terrance West and Javorius Allen also in the mix. While Forsett's absence from the Baltimore backfield will thus be short-lived, the larger issue for fantasy owners to decode now, especially once Kenneth Dixon (knee) returns to action, is how the Ravens will be inclined to divvy up their carries on a weekly basis.

Forsett is expected to re-sign with the Ravens and have a significant role Week 1 against the Bills, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

A surprise cut Saturday, the 30-year-old Forsett may still end up starting the regular-season opener, as Baltimore intends to re-sign him on a cheaper contract. Even so, Forsett will face stiff competition for snaps, with Terrance West and Javorius Allen also candidates to handle key roles Week 1. Further adding to the workload concerns, Kenneth Dixon (knee) may ultimately provide an even bigger threat than West or Allen, though the rookie is expected to miss at least two games. Forsett will likely be re-signed Monday or Tuesday, allowing him to avoid any missed practice time.

Forsett, who was released by the Ravens on Saturday, could be brought back by the team, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

EDGE Analysis

ESPN's Jamison Hensley concurs, suggesting that "no one should be surprised if the Ravens bring back Forsett after making some additional moves to the roster. " With rookie Kenneth Dixon still bouncing back from a knee injury and on track to miss a few games, at this stage Terrance West and Javorius Allen top the Ravens' running back depth chart. Forsett's release boosts the duo's fantasy value for now, though things appear somewhat fluid on that front, with the possible return of Forsett factored in, as well as the fact that Dixon's injury shouldn't keep him out too long.

The Ravens released Forsett on Saturday, Garrett Downing of the team's official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

In the shock of shocks in the last round of cuts to reach the 53-man roster, the Ravens jettisoned their presumed No. 1 running back a week before the regular season opener. A stinger contained Forsett to two appearances in the preseason, during which he mustered seven rushes for 11 yards and two catches for 14 yards. Barring another roster move in the coming days, Baltimore will be rolling with Terrance West and Javorius Allen on Sept. 11 against the Bills.
