Justin Forsett will get the start for the Seahawks Sunday

Julius Jones is sticking in Seattle, but he’s going to have to get used to being a reserve.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll announced Justin Forsett will start at running back against the 49ers on Sunday. Leon Washington, who also figures to help on returns, is probably next in line.  Jones could get a handful of carries on running downs.

Without a true primary back, Carroll figures to split carries among his backs based on the matchup.  That’s sure to drive fantasy owners crazy, but it’s the best way to utilize the roster that he has.

We just wonder if the team’s rebuilt offensive line will be able to block for them.

    Jones will be lucky to be active on Sundays

    Interesting, Uncle pete is doing the right thing here but I have forsett on my fantasy team as a backup so I hope he gets the bulk of the carries

    I like forsett, i liked him when he was @ cal and i think he could be a good player.. but i also think that the seahags OL wont be able to keep up with SF’s run D. I would start him in my fantasy team when they play the Rams or something like that.

    “When they play the Rams or someting like that” I just can’t wait for this season to start.

    It’s about time Forsett is the starter. Mora JR couldn’t figure that out last year. Hopefully he will do well given the opportunity.
