Jets | Matt Forte out with injury

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 12:28:40 -0700

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (toe) suffered a toe injury in Week 3 and is considered questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: Forte has been part of a committee at running back this season but entered Week 3 as the team's leading running back. Owners should look for an update on Forte's status in the next day or two but should be able to find better options to use most weeks.

Jets | Matt Forte removed from injury report

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 13:17:03 -0700

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) was removed from the injury report after fully practicing Friday, Sept. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Forte saw an uptick in touches last week but remains part of what will be a weekly headache as a trident backfield -- one that figures to struggle more often than not, mind you. Avoid him in all situations where a clearer path to stable point production is available.

Jets | Full practice for Matt Forte

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 13:14:31 -0700

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Forte will be part of a committee at running back this week, but he did receive most of the touches among the backs in Week 2. He will be facing a solid Miami Dolphins defense but could be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues since he could have a role in the passing game.

Jets | NYJ will use three running backs

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 11:16:42 -0700

New York Jets RBs Bilal Powell, Matt Forte and Elijah McGuire will all receive playing time against the Miami Dolphins in Week 3, according to offensive coordinator John Morton.

Fantasy Tip: Powell entered the season as the starting running back, but Forte leads the team in rushing yards with 69 yards. Powell and Forte can still be flex options in point-per-reception leagues because of their pass-catching abilities. Owners can avoid McGuire for the time being.

Jets | Matt Forte full go in practice

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 14:36:32 -0700

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) participated fully in practice Wednesday, Sept. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Forte and the Jets' running attack have been nearly non-existent over the season's first two games. We anticipated the Jets falling behind and having to throw a lot this season, though. Forte should remain on fantasy benches for now even when he's healthy.

Jets | Matt Forte a bright spot

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 20:10:19 -0700

New York Jets RB Matt Forte finished with nine carries for 53 yards and four catches for 38 yards in a 45-20 loss to the Oakland Raiders in Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: Forte has remained involved as both a runner and receiver so far this year, and if he can stay healthy, he looks like a potential RB3.

Fri, 15 Sep 2017 14:45:58 -0700

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (abdomen, knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 15, and is not on the injury report for Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: Forte probably will see a similar workload this week but is facing a solid Oakland Raiders defense. Owners in all leagues should keep Forte on the bench.

Jets | Matt Forte practices in full

Thu, 14 Sep 2017 12:44:31 -0700

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (abdomen, knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Forte will remain the No. 2 running back as long as Bilal Powell is healthy. He should receive a handful of touches in Week 2 but can be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

Jets | Matt Forte takes part in practice

Wed, 13 Sep 2017 17:01:24 -0700

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (abdomen, knee) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Forte should be ready to play in Week 2 unless he suffers a setback during the week. He was limited to 30 total yards on nine touches and probably will see a similar amount of work this week. Owners should be able to find better options to use in their lineups and can avoid Forte.
