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.

Jets | Matt Forte on track to play

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.

Jets | Rushing game limited in Week 1

Sun, 10 Sep 2017 15:55:14 -0700

New York Jets RB Bilal Powell and RB Matt Forte combined for just 38 yards Sunday, Sept. 10, in a 21-12 loss to the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Tip: Buffalo was near the bottom with its run defense last year, averaging over 133 yards given up on the ground. The fact the Bills did this to New York is not a good sign for either back. Forte may still be a flex option for deeper leagues, but the Jets' QB issues means the running game may not get the respect.

Jets | Full practice for Matt Forte

Thu, 07 Sep 2017 15:25:45 -0700

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Forte should be in uniform in Week 1 against the Buffalo Bills and will share work with Bilal Powell. Forte could be a decent flex option for owners in deeper leagues because he will see a decent amount of touches.

Jets | Full practice for Matt Forte

Thu, 07 Sep 2017 13:00:07 -0700

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) participated fully in practice Thursday, Sept. 7.

Fantasy Tip: It will be interesting to see how involved Forte is this week. Bilal Powell is New York's No. 1 running back now, but Forte still has some gas in the tank. There is hesitation in deeming him a flex starter for Week 1, but you can do worse.

Jets | Matt Forte takes part in full practice

Wed, 06 Sep 2017 14:35:20 -0700

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) was able to take part in a full practice session on Wednesday, Sept. 6.

Fantasy Tip: That's the good news. The bad news is that Bilal Powell (ribs) was also a full participant, and he is expected to be the bigger contributor in the Gang Green backfield. Forte has devolved into an RB3 or flex option in most fantasy formats after years being a first-round selection in Chicago.

Jets | Matt Forte does not expect trade

Thu, 31 Aug 2017 19:51:44 -0700

New York Jets RB Matt Forte said general manager Mike Maccagnan has assured him that he will not be traded.

Fantasy Tip: Forte will share playing time with Bilal Powell if he stays with the Jets but should see a decent amount of touches each game. Owners could consider him a No. 3 running back or a flex option in most leagues.
