Jets | Backfield committee to be used by Jets

Tue, 23 May 2017 11:31:16 -0700

New York Jets RBs Matt Forte and Bilal Powell will serve as a two-man backfield committee this season, according to offensive coordinator John Morton. Morton added that the offensive gameplan will vary from week to week, but a timeshare is expected.

Fantasy Tip: This isn't positive news for Powell, who was expected by many to take over New York's backfield. He still could, but Forte won't be pushed aside easily. Powell remains the more valuable back from a fantasy perspective and should be viewed as a low-end RB2 to high-end RB3 with added profit in PPR leagues. Forte is more of a flex consideration, although he could see more goal-line carries.

Jets | Matt Forte more productive on the road

Fri, 27 Jan 2017 16:46:43 -0800

New York Jets RB Matt Forte rushed for 419 yards and six touchdowns on the road this season while rushing for 394 yards and one touchdown at home.

Fantasy Tip: Forte lost some of his touches during the season half of the season and finished the season on the Reserve/Injured list because of a knee injury. He probably would be part of a committee if he stays with the Jets but could still be a No. 3 running back for owners depending on his role.

Jets | Matt Forte undergoes knee surgery

Mon, 02 Jan 2017 10:46:13 -0800

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) underwent surgery for a torn meniscus Friday, Dec. 30, according to head coach Todd Bowles.

Fantasy Tip: Forte should have no issues returning in time for spring workouts, but his role for 2017 is unclear. Bilal Powell finished the season strong even as the Jets' offense feel apart around him and has earned the right to a 50-50 split of the workload in New York, if not the starting job. It will be surprising if Forte is much more than a flex option in 2017.

Jets | Matt Forte placed on IR

Fri, 30 Dec 2016 13:24:57 -0800

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Friday, Dec. 30. The team also promoted practice squad CB Bryson Keeton to their active roster.

Fantasy Tip: Bilal Powell likely will serve as the starting running back in Week 17 and can be a No. 2 running back or flex option in fantasy leagues. Forte probably will share work with Powell if both are back with the team next season and should be considered as depth at running back for fantasy teams.

Jets | Matt Forte will not play in season finale

Fri, 30 Dec 2016 11:10:47 -0800

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee, shoulder) has been ruled out for Week 17 against the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Tip: Forte wraps up his first season in New York with career lows almost across the board, including carries (218), rushing yards (813), receptions (30) and receiving yards (263). Bilal Powell is listed as questionable, but he is expected to start barring a setback.

Jets | Matt Forte out of practice

Thu, 29 Dec 2016 08:15:09 -0800

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) is out of practice Thursday, Dec. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Bilal Powell (knee) is also sitting out, which could thrust Brandon Wilds or Brandon Burks in position to see action in Week 17. Both would be really speculative flex options against the Buffalo Bills.

Jets | Matt Forte does not practice

Wed, 28 Dec 2016 14:26:08 -0800

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Forte was not able to play in Week 16 and it is not looking good for his Week 17 availability. Owners should check on his status later in the week but may want to avoid him even if he plays because he probably would receive limited touches.

Jets | Matt Forte a no-go Tuesday

Tue, 27 Dec 2016 10:42:10 -0800

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

Fantasy Tip: Forte is highly unlikely to play in Week 17 versus the Buffalo Bills and could land on the Reserve/Injured list later this week. The veteran runner has played with a torn meniscus for most of the season and reportedly has nerve damage in his shoulder as well. Bilal Powell should see another heavy workload this weekend.

Jets | Matt Forte won't play in Week 16

Sat, 24 Dec 2016 08:48:10 -0800

The New York Jets have declared RB Matt Forte (knee, shoulder) inactive for Week 16's game against the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: Forte did not practice at all during the week, so this news shouldn't come as a major surprise. Bilal Powell will serve as the Jets' lead back this afternoon and should be viewed as a solid RB2 option in all formats. Khiry Robinson is also active for the game but is unlikely to see enough touches to make a major fantasy impact.

Sat, 24 Dec 2016 07:33:09 -0800

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee, shoulder) is not expected to play in Week 16's game against the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: Bilal Powell appears likely to receive the bulk of the carries against New England this week. He has 229 rushing yards, 112 receiving yards and two touchdowns over the last two games and should be viewed as a serviceable RB2 in all fantasy formats.

Jets | Matt Forte doubtful for Week 16

Fri, 23 Dec 2016 15:45:24 -0800

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee, shoulder) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 23, and is listed as doubtful for Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: Forte probably will not play against New England Patriots and would see limited work if he is active, so owners should keep him on the bench and look for other option. Bilal Powell likely would receive most of the work at running back and can be a No. 2 running back in most leagues.

Jets | Matt Forte may be game-time decision

Thu, 22 Dec 2016 09:41:38 -0800

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (shoulder) is expected to be a game-time decision for Week 16 because of his shoulder injury, according to head coach Todd Bowles. Forte did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to check the inactive list to see if Forte plays, but there is a chance that Forte could be limited if he plays. Owners could consider Forte as a low-end No. 2 back or a flex option if he plays. Bilal Powell would see most of the work at running back is Forte sits out and would be a fine No. 2 back for owners.

Jets | Matt Forte battling nerve issue

Wed, 21 Dec 2016 19:01:22 -0800

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (shoulder) said Wednesday, Dec. 21, that he is dealing with a "nerve issue" in his shoulder, and he is uncertain if he'll be ready to play in Week 16 against the New England Patriots. He also said he will not play if he cannot protect himself.

Fantasy Tip: If Forte is unable to suit up Saturday it would be Bilal Powell handling the lion's share of the backfield chores. If Powell is still available off the waiver wire after his big performance in Week 15, grab him immediately.

Jets | Matt Forte misses practice

Wed, 21 Dec 2016 13:46:26 -0800

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee, shoulder) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should know more about Forte's status later in the week. Forte can be a low-end No. 2 running back or a flex option if he plays but will be a risky option. Bilal Powell could be an attractive player for fantasy owners if Forte is ruled out.

Jets | Limited snaps for Matt Forte

Sat, 17 Dec 2016 20:40:45 -0800

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) had four carries for 21 yards and one catch for seven yards in a 34-13 loss to the Miami Dolphins Saturday, Dec. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Forte is dealing with a torn meniscus, and the Jets took it easy on the veteran. Don't be surprised if the trend continues for the remainder of the season.

Jets | Matt Forte active for Week 15

Sat, 17 Dec 2016 16:02:47 -0800

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) is active and will play in Week 15 against the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Tip: It's a bummer for Bilal Powell owners, although it is entirely possible Forte plays a cameo role in a plus-matchup. Given that possibility, it would be difficult to start Forte in fantasy. As for Powell, owners now have reason to bench him if they were torn between multiple options. The odds are strong, however, Powell sees the bulk of the workload and performs like a RB2.

Jets | Matt Forte questionable for Week 15

Fri, 16 Dec 2016 11:26:49 -0800

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) was limited in practice Friday, Dec. 16, and has been listed as questionable on the team's Week 15 injury report.

Fantasy Tip: Forte is expected to be a game-time decision, although Jets' reporters believe he will play. His presence would be a blow to the rising fantasy stock of Bilal Powell, who many owners were hoping could carry them to a fantasy championship in what appears to be a plus-matchup in Week 15 against the Miami Dolphins. Forte is too risky to trust in fantasy this week, but he could also make Powell hard to trust too if he is active.

Jets | Matt Forte limited Thursday

Thu, 15 Dec 2016 09:41:44 -0800

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Forte will be a game-time decision for Week 15, so owners will need to check the inactive list before deciding on their lineup. He would be a risky option if he is active because he could see limited snaps during the game. Owners could use him as a flex options but will need other options ready.

Jets | Matt Forte has torn meniscus

Wed, 14 Dec 2016 12:05:40 -0800

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) said his MRI revealed that he has a torn meniscus in his knee and believes he has been playing with the injury all season.

Fantasy Tip: Forte is expected to be a game-time decision for the game and could be limited if he is active for the game, which makes him a risky option. Owners could use him has a flex option if he is active, but owners will need other options ready in case he does not play.

Jets | Matt Forte to be game-time decision

Wed, 14 Dec 2016 11:07:06 -0800

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) will be a game-time decision for the team's Week 15 game, according to head coach Todd Bowles.

Fantasy Tip: Forte probably will not do much during practice this week, so owners will need to check in the inactive list to find out his status. He has struggled over the last three games and probably would not be more than a flex option if he plays. Bilal Powell would receive most of the work if Forte sits and could be a No. 2 back or a flex option for owners.

Jets | Matt Forte sits one out

Wed, 14 Dec 2016 09:02:44 -0800

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) is out of practice Wednesday, Dec. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Forte is pretty iffy against the Miami Dolphins this week. If he's out, Bilal Powell could be a bargain in DFS with flex capabilities in standard leagues.

Jets | Matt Forte day-to-day

Tue, 13 Dec 2016 10:15:55 -0800

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) is day-to-day with a right knee injury after undergoing a MRI on Monday, Dec. 12, according to head coach Todd Bowles.

Fantasy Tip: Forte came out of the game in Week 14 after three first-quarter carries and did not return, allowing backup Bilal Powell to have a field day against the San Francisco 49ers' porous run defense. Powell is definitely worth a speculative add in any league he might still be available this week, but the challenge is much more difficult against a Miami Dolphins defense that did a solid job of containing David Johnson last week. If Forte plays this weekend, consider him and Powell flex plays at best.

Jets | Matt Forte day-to-day

Mon, 12 Dec 2016 15:33:34 -0800

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) is considered day-to-day because of the knee injury he suffered in Week 14. Head coach Todd Bowles said he will know more about Forte's injury Tuesday, Dec. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to keep an eye on Forte during practice this week to see if he has a chance to play in Week 15. He would be a risky option if he plays but could still be a No. 2 back or a flex option. Bilal Powell would receive most of the work if Forte is not able to play and would be at least a flex option.

Jets | Matt Forte suffers knee injury

Mon, 12 Dec 2016 05:13:55 -0800

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) left the game Sunday, Dec. 11, with a hyperextended knee, and he'll have an MRI Monday, Dec. 12. He said he didn't think he hurt any ligaments, but there is cracking and popping in his knee.

Fantasy Tip: We'll know more after the MRI, but you should plan to be without him in Week 15. Bilal Powell would be the leader in the backfield if that were the case. He'd be a flex option.

Jets | Another full practice for Matt Forte

Fri, 09 Dec 2016 12:17:01 -0800

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee, foot) was a full participant at practice Friday, Dec. 9.

Fantasy Tip: There's no question Forte will be active on Sunday versus the 49ers, but his value and ceiling take a sizeable hit with Bryce Petty under center. He's too good to bench, though, so owners must hope the Jets offense can bounce back from Monday night's disaster. Consider him a middling RB2.

Jets | Full practice for Matt Forte

Thu, 08 Dec 2016 15:16:50 -0800

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee, foot) participated fully in practice Thursday, Dec. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Forte may have the best matchup of any running back this week against the San Francisco 49ers, although, the 49ers may focus on him defensively with Bryce Petty at quarterback. Even so, Forte is a low-end RB1 to high-end RB2 option.

Jets | Matt Forte listed as limited

Wed, 07 Dec 2016 15:00:43 -0800

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (foot, knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Forte probably will receive a bigger role on offense with Bryce Petty as the starting quarterback. He had been held to 52 yards and zero touchdowns over the last two games and probably will see more defenders in the box moving forward. He should be considered a No. 2 running back or a flex option in leagues.

Jets | Matt Forte doesn't do much

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 21:40:10 -0800

New York Jets RB Matt Forte rushed nine times for just 25 yards in the Week 13 game against the Indianapolis Colts Monday, Dec. 5, and he managed three catches for 54 yards on four targets.

Fantasy Tip: The Jets got away from the run in a blowout loss, but Forte did salvage the stat line with one 40-yard reception. It wasn't a huge stat line, but likely just enough for some fantasy owners. He'll look to rebound in Week 14 against the San Francisco 49ers, the league's worst rushing defense.

Sat, 03 Dec 2016 13:47:28 -0800

Fantasy Tip: Forte has been a big part of the team's offense over the last month and has posted great numbers during that span. He should continue to see a lot of touches and should be at least a No. 2 running back in all leagues.

Jets | Matt Forte full go

Thu, 24 Nov 2016 14:42:32 -0800

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) put in a full practice Thursday, Nov. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Forte is an every-week fantasy starter as long as he's healthy. Despite big workloads throughout his career, he's turned in a quality season in his first year with the Jets. Forte has RB1 upside but is safer as an RB2 this week against the New England Patriots.

New York Jets RB Matt Forte ran 20 times for 98 yards and hauled in two passes for 11 yards against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 10.

Fantasy Tip: Forte remains a fringe RB2 or better flex play in PPR formats, but without scoring, his value remains shaky from week to week.

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) was listed as a full participant in practice Friday, Nov. 11, and he is expected to start in Week 10 against the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Tip: The good news is that Forte is healthy. The bad news is he faces the league's 11th-ranked rush defense, as the Rams give up just 98.6 yards per game with six touchdowns through eight games. It's a tough matchup, but Forte remains an RB2 in all fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Forte has found the endzone five times in the Jets' last three outings, including once through the air. His matchup is tougher than average versus the Los Angeles Rams, but Forte's volume and knack for scoring this year automatically make him an RB1 option.

Fantasy Tip: Forte has had a re-awakening the last two weeks, scoring three times to go with 182 rushing yards. His knee will need to be monitored before making any lineup decisions, but he should be able to play as long as he's practicing. View him as a low-end RB1 for Week 9.

Jets | Two key Jets players upgraded to full

Fri, 28 Oct 2016 13:04:57 -0700

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) and WR Brandon Marshall (foot) each practiced in full Friday, Oct. 28. Forte did not participate in practice the previous day, though he did manage to get in a limited session Wednesday, Oct. 26. Marshall sat out the first practice of the week before practicing on a limited basis Thursday, Oct. 27.

Fantasy Tip: This should take away any concern and put them both on track to play in Sunday's favorable matchup with the Cleveland Browns. Forte logged his first 100-yard rushing effort since Week 2 last weekend, while also adding a receiving touchdown, so he'll be entering this affair with a lot of momentum. Meanwhile, Marshall put up an undesirable line in that game, but with Ryan Fitzpatrick back under center for the Jets, the 32-year-old should be able to sustain his WR1 value. Marshall caught a career-high 14 touchdown passes last season from Fitz, remember.

Jets | No practice for Matt Forte

Thu, 27 Oct 2016 14:59:36 -0700

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 27.

Fantasy Tip: It's certainly discouraging that Forte went from being limited yesterday to not practicing today. If he misses practice again tomorrow then there is cause for real concern. If he does play he has one of the better matchups of the week against a Cleveland Browns defense that is surrendering over 100 yards and one touchdown per game to running backs.

Fantasy Tip: Forte could be ready for his biggest performance since finding the end zone three times against the Buffalo Bills in mid-September. He is a must-start in all fantasy formats this weekend despite some shaky games recently.
