Fantasy football owners may want to add Justin Forsett if they’re desperate for a running back.

Less than a week after signing, Forsett will likely get a chance to play a lot for the Lions Sunday at home against the Los Angeles Rams.

The Lions previously ruled Theo Riddick out with an ankle injury. Detroit also listed rookie Dwayne Washington among its inactives Sunday because of an ankle injury, leaving just Zach Zenner and Forsett at running back. Ameer Abdullah is on injured reserve with a foot injury.

Forsett signed with the Lions on Tuesday after asking for and getting his release from the Baltimore Ravens earlier this month. The 30-year-old Forsett had just 31 carries for 98 yards over three games as a starter this season with the Ravens before he plummeted on their depth chart. He ran for 1,266 yards in 2014 and 641 last year in 10 starts before breaking his arm.
