Jets | Matt Forte retires

Wed, 28 Feb 2018 09:16:14 -0800

New York Jets RB Matt Forte announced his retirement from the NFL Wednesday, Feb. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Forte was among the most dominant two-way fantasy backs of the past 20 years, but he has been a shell of his former self in recent years. Father Time caught up, as he always does. The Jets will have at least one running back hole to fill entering free agency and the draft season.

Jets | Matt Forte wants to continue playing

Fri, 02 Feb 2018 14:45:12 -0800

New York Jets RB Matt Forte said he wants to play next season.

Fantasy Tip: The Jets may consider releasing Forte this offseason, so he could be playing with a new team in 2018. He probably will not be a starting running back for a team but find a decent role with a team because of his receiving abilities. He can be a late-round pick in deeper drafts next season depending on his role.

Sat, 30 Dec 2017 12:30:08 -0800

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Dec. 30.

Jets | Another missed practice for Matt Forte

Thu, 28 Dec 2017 16:06:10 -0800

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) missed practice for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 28.

Fantasy Tip: The club's Week 17 contest is the opposite of ideal in terms of utilizing any Jets running back, as the Patriots are expected to blow them out for the majority of the afternoon. Thus, New York will probably be throwing often while trailing, which doesn't leave much work for the backfield. Even if Forte plays, he's not someone worth starting.

Jets | Matt Forte not on field

Wed, 27 Dec 2017 15:37:57 -0800

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Forte probably will return to practice later in the week and should be in uniform this week. He has received less than 10 touches in each of the last three games and probably can be benched in most fantasy leagues.

Jets | Matt Forte quiet in Week 16

Sun, 24 Dec 2017 14:48:05 -0800

New York Jets RB Matt Forte rushed for 19 yards on eight carries against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 16. He also caught one pass for seven yards during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Forte continues to be involved in the running and passing game but has not posted more than 50 total yards in any of the last three games. He could be aa flex option in deeper leagues next week, but owners in most leagues should be able to find better options.

Jets | Matt Forte active for Week 16

Sun, 24 Dec 2017 09:05:19 -0800

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) is active for Week 16's game against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Fantasy Tip: Forte will play despite not practicing at all during the week. He will be splitting carries with Elijah McGuire and Bilal Powell and shouldn't be viewed as anything more than a risky flex option in deeper fantasy leagues.
