Stock down: Justin Forsett
Justin Forsett had a fumble last week against the 49ers, and he followed that up with another fumble Saturday night against the Cowboys. While he didn’t lose this one and the Ravens recovered, it’s a huge concern for a team that spoke disparagingly about turnovers following last week’s game.
The good news is, Forsett didn’t embarrass himself outside of the fumble. He finished with 2 carries for 10 yards and 2 catches for 24 yards. Overall, Forsett has looked good running the ball and making catches out of the backfield, but so has every other back on this team. It’s highly unlikely that Forsett is cut, but he needs to stop putting the ball on the ground if he wants a role on the offense.
