|Jets | Matt Forte could have significant role|
Mon, 14 Mar 2016 09:40:31 -0700
New York Jets RB Matt Forte said he hasn't talked about specifics of his role on the team this year, but he expects to have a substantial role in the offense. "They see me as an every-down back," Forte said in his first interview since signing a three-year, $12 million contract.
Fantasy Tip: Matters were complicated when the Jets signed both Bilal Powell and Khiry Robinson, so it could be a three-headed monster in New York with Forte leading the way. Despite the tread on Forte's tires, he could have upside as an RB2 in PPR leagues in this offense if Ryan Fitzpatrick returns. But it's safer to value him as an RB3 with Powell and Robinson in the picture.

Fantasy Tip: The Jets lost Chris Ivory and could see Bilal Powell depart, too, which puts Forte in a position for a heavy workload in New York. However, Forte has plenty of wear on his tires and could be spelled often. If Ryan Fitzpatrick comes back, though, this could be a positive environment for Forte, and he could be an RB2 in PPR formats.

|NFL | Two more teams like Matt Forte|
Wed, 09 Mar 2016 10:11:30 -0800
Fantasy Tip: This makes sense, since the Jets are losing Chris Ivory and the Dolphins Lamar Miller in free agency. Forte could be a nice fit with either club, and despite his advanced age and heavy mileage, could be a nice RB3 in point-per-reception formats.

|Packers | Green Bay interested in Matt Forte|
Tue, 08 Mar 2016 10:36:00 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Forte has a wide range of possibilities for landing spots in free agency, but Green Bay might be one of the more intriguing. It's uncertain how his role would shake out with Eddie Lacy in the mix, but Forte would likely have a role as a pass-catching back in at least third-down situations. That could make him an RB3 in PPR leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Forte will be an RB3 at worst when he finds his new team. He could thrive in Green Bay's passing game.

|Patriots | New England fixed on upgrading backfield|
Sun, 28 Feb 2016 13:21:31 -0800
Impending free-agent RBs Chris Ivory (Jets), Matt Forte (Bears), Alfred Morris (Redskins) and Joique Bell (Lions) are among the veterans on the radar of the New England Patriots, according to a source.
Fantasy Tip: The Patriots would do well to upgrade from LeGarrette Blount and each of the aforementioned names - outside of Bell - would provide that. Ivory is perhaps the most intriguing option in that he is an early-down thumper that would be a great complement to dynamic passing-down back Dion Lewis. If Ivory joins New England, he could be a solid RB2 option in most leagues.

|Ravens | Baltimore unlikely to pursue Matt Forte|
Mon, 15 Feb 2016 15:17:13 -0800
Chicago Bears impending free-agent RB Matt Forte probably will not be an option for the Baltimore Ravens this offseason because he does not have a great relationship with offensive coordinator Marc Trestman.
Fantasy Tip: The Ravens likely will go with Justin Forsett as their main running back next season if he is able to recover from his injury. Forsett probably will be a middle-round option in most leagues. Forte should find a job this season but may not be a starter like he was in Chicago. Forte's value will be determined by his new team.

|Colts | Indy may not pursue Matt Forte|
Sun, 14 Feb 2016 11:18:31 -0800
Fantasy Tip: The Colts already have an older running back in Frank Gore, it's highly unlikely that they would pair an older running back with another older running back, even though Forte may offer more in the passing game. It would benefit the Colts more to draft and/or sign a younger running back that could even possibly take over for Gore when he's done.

|Panthers | Carolina not expected to add Matt Forte|
Sun, 14 Feb 2016 10:41:15 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Stewart played well when he was healthy this past season and probably will return to the team, which means Forte will sign with another team. Stewart could be considered a No. 2 running back in some leagues next season, while Forte's value will depend on his new team.
