I believe it was 2010 where I had this guy as one of my big sleepers in fantasy football. I was really disappointed when he was picked before I could. I ended up getting lucky by not getting him.

But still... will be a nice pick up since he also has some return experience. He finds the hole and runs hard. Also a nice receiver. Will be happy to have him as the #3.

...and to think there was a time - in the not too distant past - when Forsett would have been in the running to start around here.

We have evolved.

Do the Texans believe Ward has anything left? He'll be 32 when the season begins and his ypc tumbled from 6.3 in 2010 to 3.4 in 2011. There's probably a reason why Ward is still unsigned in the league.

That's a good point.

Ward might not even be on their radar. Also his lack of special teams involvement might be a factor too.

I would rather have Forsett than Ward just for simple fact that Ward is getting old. Forsett won't really play much except on obvious passing downs. And knowing Kubiak would bust out the draw. Forsett would an upgrade in my opinion. not much but still..

I'm just surprised we're trying our a 3rd string running back and no receivers..

There doesn't seem to be many receivers out there right now (I think the patriots signed them all) and I have a feeling we'll see some when other teams make their first cuts.

Justin Forsett could be a nice 3rd down contributor for us. Not that Foster couldn't handle that, but i still wouldn't mind if we picked him up.

I don't know that I would worry about that. He weighed ~235 pounds when he came out of college.

I think you hit the nail on the head there .... Ward adds nothing to ST.


The one thing that concerns me with Forsett is blitz pickup with an oft injured QB back there with him ....

Has to be a better option ....

As others have mentioned , not a lot out there right at WR.

This team survived last season with #80 missing 9 games and Pea Brain starting in his place .... They looked at a couple cheap options to fill the void but didnt put any real resources in it.

Once teams are forced to make some cuts , we may see a vet come in but I wouldnt count on it unless they believe the rookies wont get it done or there is a surprise player on the market for cheap. Thats not likely either .... Competition for FA WR's will push cost up. Lots of teams could use another productive reciever.

Ward isn't getting a deal on the market to split carries. It just isn't going to happen. There are too many backs out there who are better. My guess is they bring him back to compete with the other guys for that 3rd spot. Forsett is only getting a workout right now keep in mind. To me his style fits well with what we do.

I can't say that I've paid much attention to this when watching him so i'm sure you're right. Maybe a change of scenery will help him be more competitive in this area.

forsett reminds me a whole lot of steve slaton... take that for what it's worth. i would like him as our #3 RB as long as we try to minimize his opportunities picking up the blitz.
