Jets | Matt Forte does not practice

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 15:19:45 -0800

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Forte hasn't done much since Nov. 2 against the Buffalo Bills, and beat writer Andy Vazquez says his injury is a major concern. Fantasy owners should avoid him completely until he is healthy enough to play again. It sounds like that could be a ways off.

Jets | Matt Forte a no-go Wednesday

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 10:34:41 -0800

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Forte has been sidelined since his two-touchdown game on Thursday Night Football in Week 9 and doesn't appear to be all that close to playing three weeks later even though the team is coming off a bye. Bilal Powell and Elijah McGuire would be unexciting flex plays in Week 12 versus the Carolina Panthers if Forte cannot go.

Jets | Matt Forte a no-go for Week 10

Fri, 10 Nov 2017 09:40:58 -0800

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) has been ruled out for Week 10 versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Tip: Bilal Powell will get the start in a plus-matchup and should be considered a strong fantasy RB2, while Elijah McGuire makes for a potential flex option in a change-of-pace role. Considering Forte did not practice all this week, owners cannot assume he'll be ready for Week 11. Stay tuned.

Fri, 10 Nov 2017 08:14:55 -0800

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) is out of practice Friday, Nov. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Forte looks doubtful to go in Week 10. Bilal Powell would be an attractive RB2 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who are one of the worst teams against the position the last five weeks.

Jets | Matt Forte has swelling in knee

Wed, 08 Nov 2017 23:16:56 -0800

Updating a previous report, New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) is dealing with swelling in his surgically repaired right knee. He did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Forte has only missed one game this season, but when you hear the word "swelling" in conjunction with "surgically repaired" it's a concern -- especially when you consider the team hasn't done anything since last Thursday. Keep a close eye on the situation as the week progresses and be ready to deploy alternatives if Forte has to sit this Sunday.
