2024 Fantasy Outlook
There was no outlook written for Darrick Forrest in 2024. Check out the latest news below for more on his current fantasy value.
$Signed a four-year, $3.79 million contract with Washington in May of 2021.
Returns healthy for offseason program

June 27, 2024
Forrest was healthy for spring practices after suffering a season-ending shoulder fracture in October, Zach Selby of the Commanders' official site reports.
ANALYSIS
Forrest became a starter during the 2022 season and then played 99.1 percent of defensive snaps through Week 5 in 2023. Fellow safety Percy Butler played nearly every snap over the next 10 games following Forrest's injury, recording 57 tackles and six passes defended in that stretch. Forrest seems like the favorite to start in the final season of his rookie contract, but he may spend more time in deep coverage after Washington signed 220-pound Jeremy Chinn to replace Kamren Curl at the other safety spot. Forrest could perhaps have more fantasy value if he ends up starting next to Butler while Chinn guards the slot and/or plays as a pseudo-linebacker.

IDP Analysis: Week 12 Review
November 28, 2022
November 28, 2022
Jordan Mazzara looks at IDP options to help fantasy teams heading into Week 13, including Darrick Forrest, who’s taken over the starting free safety job in Washington.
2023 Fantasy Outlook
Forest barely played in 2021 as a rookie fifth-round pick, but he became a crucial part of Washington's defense last year after moving into the starting free safety spot midseason, ultimately recording 88 tackles and a team-high four interceptions across 17 games (11 starts). His per-snap tackle rate wasn't far behind strong safety Kamren Curl's, and while Curl is the favorite to make more tackles this season, Forrest is back as a starter and also could have IDP value.
