Jets | Matt Forte could be an option for Jets

Fri, 12 Feb 2016 12:22:35 -0800

Chicago Bears impending free-agent RB Matt Forte could receive interest from the New York Jets as a third-down back but probably would not have a chance to start.

Fantasy Tip: The running back position for the Jets is uncertain at this point since their top three backs are free agents. The team would like to re-sign Chris Ivory and have him as their starting running back, so Forte probably would be used more as a receiver if he signs with New York. Forte could be a middle-round option in fantasy leagues if he finds himself in this situation.

Jets | Matt Forte an unlikely option for Jets

Wed, 10 Feb 2016 15:40:57 -0800

Chicago Bears impending free-agent RB Matt Forte probably won't be pursued by the New York Jets in free agency despite the Jets having three impending free-agent running backs of their own.

Fantasy Tip: It doesn't make sense for the Jets to attempt to sign Forte considering his age (30 years old) and how much action he's seen in his career already. The Jets may be more comfortable with retaining Bilal Powell and drafting and/or signing a lower caliber running back.

Jets | New York not interested in Kaepernick

Wed, 03 Feb 2016 16:10:23 -0800

The New York Jets are not and have not been interested in San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick. Kaepernick has wanted out of San Francisco for months now, and the hiring of new head coach Chip Kelly hasn't changed his stance. A trade remains very likely.

Fantasy Tip: Nothing is guaranteed for Kaepernick after a disappointing season that came to an end because of injury. Things could still work out for him in San Fran in Kelly's scheme if he's willing to buy in, but that's a big if. At best for 2016 if he's a starter somewhere, Kaepernick is a risky backup fantasy quarterback with upside to surprise.

Jets | Brandon Marshall doesn't want Kaep

Wed, 03 Feb 2016 10:46:35 -0800

New York Jets WR Brandon Marshall said he doesn't want the team to acquire San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick and wants the team to re-sign impending free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick. "I don't want Kaepernick," Marshall said on ESPN's "First Take." "I think he's good. My guy's Fitz," Marshall explained. "It's nothing against Kaepernick, but what I'm saying is that I have my quarterbacks and I'm good."

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick had a breakthrough season and would be in the low-end QB1 range if he re-ups with the Jets.

Jets | New QB for Gang Green?

Tue, 02 Feb 2016 19:08:34 -0800

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick reportedly "wants out of San Francisco," and sources said Tuesday, Feb. 2, that the New York Jets are his preferred destination. The team is aware and intrigued in Kaepernick's desire to play for the cub, but are still in early stages of their offseason planning and evaluation, sources said.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick would have Brandon Marshall at his disposal if he were to make the move cross-country, but know that this is a story in its embryonic stages. Nothing is imminent right now.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick talks coming soon?

Tue, 02 Feb 2016 16:45:29 -0800

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Jets are expected to discuss a contract extension in the coming weeks.

Fantasy Tip: The Jets want to bring Fitzpatrick back, but Colin Kaepernick has recently expressed an interest in joining the Jets, which could put a wrinkle in the Fitzpatrick discussions. New York may view Fitzpatrick as a less risky option, though, so keep your finger on the pulse of the Jets' quarterback situation.

Jets | Matt Forte an option for New York?

Tue, 02 Feb 2016 11:10:02 -0800

Chicago Bears RB Matt Forte wouldn't be ruled out as an option for the New York Jets to sign if he becomes available, in the opinion of ESPNNewYork.com's Rich Cimini.

Fantasy Tip: Of course, as Cimini also said, there would be a lot of variables for the Jets to pursue and sign Forte, the first likely being that Chris Ivory isn't re-signed. As it stands, the Jets do have three impending free-agent running backs in Ivory, Bilal Powell and Stevan Ridley. Much needs to happen in order for Forte to land in New York, though.

Jets | New York has questions at running back

Mon, 01 Feb 2016 13:41:57 -0800

New York Jets impending free-agent RBs Chris Ivory, Bilal Powell and Stevan Ridley will all be unrestricted free agents this offseason if they are not re-signed.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory is expected not to re-sign, and it's unlikely that the Jets would let their three best running backs walk away. If Powell stays and the Jets don't sign anyone else, he could be the featured back in New York's offense next season.
