Jets | Bilal Powell, Matt Forte limited

Mon, 14 Aug 2017 15:30:08 -0700

New York Jets RBs Bilal Powell (neck) and RB Matt Forte (hamstring) were limited to positional drills during practice Monday, Aug. 14.

Fantasy Tip: It appears that Powell and Forte are making progress but they probably will miss the second preseason game. Both have a good chance to be ready for the start of the regular season, but owners will need to monitor the situation. Powell could receive more of the snaps at running back this season, but Forte will also be involved in the offense. Powell can be a low-end No. 2 or a No. 3 running back, while Forte is more of a No. 3 back.

Jets | Bilal Powell, Matt Forte unlikely to play

Wed, 09 Aug 2017 15:57:17 -0700

New York Jets RB Bilal Powell (neck) and RB Matt Forte (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Aug. 9, and are not expected to play in the preseason game against the Tennessee Titans Saturday, Aug. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Powell and Forte continue to be sidelined by their injuries, so their status for the second preseason game is uncertain. They are expected to share work at running back this season, but Powell may see more touches in the offense. Powell can be a low-end No. 2 or a No. 3 running back in most standard leagues, while Forte could be a low-end No. 3 back.

Jets | Matt Forte, Bilal Powell still out

Tue, 08 Aug 2017 18:07:10 -0700

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (hamstring) and RB Bilal Powell (neck) did not participate in practice Tuesday, Aug. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Forte and Powell have both missed several practices, but the team probably will not bring them back until they are 100 percent since they will have big roles in the offense. Both are expected to receive a solid amount of playing time, but Powell may receive more of the snaps during the season. Powell can be considered a low-end No. 2 or No. 3 running back in leagues, while Forte could be a low-end No. 3 back.

Jets | Matt Forte limited Monday

Mon, 07 Aug 2017 15:28:43 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Jets RB Matt Forte (hamstring) did some light work during practice Monday, Aug. 7, but sat out team drills.

Fantasy Tip: Forte is slowly working his way back from his hamstring injury and may be limited for a few more days. He will be sharing snaps with Bilal Powell this season, which probably will hurt his value. Owners should consider him a No. 3 running back in most leagues.

Jets | Matt Forte back practicing

Mon, 07 Aug 2017 11:35:44 -0700

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (hamstring) returned to practice Monday, Aug. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Don't be surprised to see the Jets take it easy with their veteran runner going forward. Bilal Powell essentially supplanted Forte last season as the Jets' most fantasy relevant running back. Powell and Forte are RB2 and RB3 PPR options, respectively.

Jets | Matt Forte remains sidelined

Fri, 04 Aug 2017 15:06:45 -0700

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (hamstring) did not participate in practice Friday, Aug. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Forte probably will not return until he is completely recovered from his hamstring injury. Forte is expected to share snaps with Bilal Powell this season but probably will receive a majority of the carries during the season. He probably can be considered a No. 3 running back in most fantasy leagues.

Jets | Matt Forte considered day-to-day

Tue, 01 Aug 2017 16:21:35 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Jets RB Matt Forte (hamstring) is day-to-day with a hamstring injury, according to head coach Todd Bowles. The Jets will take it easy with their 31-year-old running back, especially since camp has just begun.

Fantasy Tip: As stated earlier, Forte figures to hand the proverbial baton to Bilal Powell this year. Forte should not be forgotten, however. He's worth a look as a flex and provides a top-end handcuff for Powell owners.

Jets | Matt Forte resting hamstring

Tue, 01 Aug 2017 12:19:28 -0700

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (hamstring) did not practice Tuesday, Aug. 1. He is resting the hamstring he injured Monday, July 31.

Fantasy Tip: The injury doesn't appear to be serious, but it's worth monitoring. Bilal Powell is the Jets' running back to own this year, but Forte isn't a pushover. He's still a mid-round consideration at 31 years old.

Jets | Matt Forte hurt hamstring

Mon, 31 Jul 2017 13:46:58 -0700

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (hamstring) tweaked his hamstring at training camp Monday, July 31, according to head coach Todd Bowles. He was subsequently held out of team drills.

Fantasy Tip: Forte may be given some time off or not practice as much in an effort to avoid aggravating the tweak. Forte has stayed relatively healthy throughout his nine-year NFL career, but 2017 could very well be the year Bilal Powell takes the reins from the veteran back. Forte is a decent flex option and a viable "handcuff" for those who draft Powell.

Jets | Matt Forte to be workhorse?

Fri, 23 Jun 2017 07:38:46 -0700

New York Jets RB Matt Forte will be the offensive workhorse this season, in the opinion of NJ Advance Media's Connor Hughes.

Fantasy Tip: Forte will be 32 late in the season, and the signs of age have been showing for a couple of years now. Bilal Powell is also waiting in the wings, which doesn't lend to conventional wisdom to use Forte as the workhorse. Forte is still a useful PPR back, but it's only as an RB3.
