Jets | Matt Forte practices more

Mon, 22 Aug 2016 16:44:48 -0700

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (hamstring) increased his practice workload Monday, Aug. 22, and may play Saturday, Aug. 27, against the New York Giants.

Fantasy Tip: He may not play much if he does play, but it will still be nice to see how Forte looks since he's been recovering from the hamstring ailment. Even with his cumbersome workloads over his career, Forte is still a low-end RB1 to high-end RB2 consideration.

Jets | NYJ wants to see Matt Forte in action

Sun, 21 Aug 2016 17:32:24 -0700

New York Jets RB Matt Forte could "get a few snaps in" during next week's preseason game against the New York Giants if head coach Todd Bowles gets his wish, according to SNY reporter Ralph Vacchiano.

Fantasy Tip: Forte has reportedly impressed in practices recently after missing a significant portion of the early part of training camp. The longtime Chicago Bear isn't a great bet to return to RB1 status in New York since he will be sharing backfield touches with Bilal Powell and, to a lesser extent, Khiry Robinson, but he should still be a factor as a midrange RB2 in PPR formats.

Jets | Matt Forte not ruled out

Wed, 17 Aug 2016 13:43:54 -0700

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (hamstring) has a slim chance to play in the preseason game against the Washington Redskins Friday, Aug. 19, according to head coach Todd Bowles.

Fantasy Tip: Forte probably would receive limited snaps if he plays against the Redskins but should receive more playing time in the third preseason game. Forte should be a No. 2 running back in most leagues since he will be involved in the running and passing game.

Jets | Matt Forte should be ready for opener

Tue, 16 Aug 2016 15:20:02 -0700

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (hamstring) said he will definitely be ready to play in Week 1. His goal is see some action in the third preseason game against the New York Giants.

Fantasy Tip: Forte's workloads from his time with the Chicago Bears can't be ignored, especially at the age of 30. He's still New York's primary ball carrier, though, and will see plenty of touches as long as he's healthy. Bilal Powell and Khiry Robinson will hinder him from reaching his fantasy ceiling, but Forte is still a borderline RB1 in all formats.

Jets | No timetable established for Matt Forte's return

Sun, 14 Aug 2016 08:03:53 -0700

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (hamstring) did not practice Saturday, Aug. 13, and it remains uncertain when he will be able to return. However, head coach Todd Bowles said Forte has been receiving treatment and isn't concerned at this point about beginning the regular season without him.

Fantasy Tip: Forte should be viewed as a high-end RB2, with added value in PPR fantasy leagues, although he shouldn't be considered a bellcow anymore due to the presence of RBs Bilal Powell and Khiry Robinson. There are some risks which come with drafting him, including age (he will turn 31 in December) and workload (2,035 rushing attempts entering this season) but he can still be a productive back when healthy.

Tue, 09 Aug 2016 12:22:27 -0700

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (hamstring) did not practice Tuesday, Aug. 9, and will not play in the Jets' first preseason game Thursday, Aug. 11, against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Fantasy Tip: New York will take it easy with their new star running back leading up to the regular season, especially considering the workloads he had with the Chicago Bears. Forte's PPR value may have slipped a little bit with Bilal Powell also in the mix, but Forte is still a low-end RB1 to high-end RB2 consideration.

Fri, 05 Aug 2016 11:23:33 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Forte's a fading fantasy star, but he projects to have a prominent role in the offense and remains a viable RB2 with more upside in PPR settings. Just remember, he has competition for touches in Bilal Powell and Khiry Robinson, and Forte has 2,035 career rushing attempts entering his age-31 campaign.

Thu, 04 Aug 2016 13:17:06 -0700
