Jets | No practice for Matt Forte

Thu, 14 Dec 2017 11:06:01 -0800

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

Fantasy Tip: Forte has not practiced for two consecutive days now, so his Week 15 status is becoming murkier. If he is unable to play then Bilal Powell will see a good chunk of touches with Elijah McGuire also being involved. If Forte sits then Powell deserves flex consideration.

Jets | Matt Forte unable to practice

Wed, 13 Dec 2017 14:35:48 -0800

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Forte has been banged up for a good chunk of the season, posting 388 rushing yards with two scores and 34 grabs for 276 yards and one touchdown. He can be a useful low-end RB3 or flex play in PPR formats, but is more of a RB4 in standard play at this point.

Jets | Small role for Matt Forte

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 19:49:29 -0800

New York Jets RB Matt Forte ran six times for 13 yards and caught two passes for 21 yards in a 23-0 loss to the Denver Broncos in Week 14.

Fantasy Tip: Forte had been nursing a knee injury all week, so the limited role wasn't a big surprise. Even when fully healthy, he has been splitting time with Bilal Powell, and Forte is no more than a desperation flex play at this point.

Jets | Matt Forte will play

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 12:00:04 -0800

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) is officially active in the team's Week 14 game.

Fantasy Tip: Forte will share playing time with Bilal Powell against the Denver Broncos. He should be involved in the running and passing game this week and can be a flex option in most leagues.

Jets | Matt Forte expected to play

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 06:46:36 -0800

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) is likely to play in Week 14's game against the Denver Broncos.

Fantasy Tip: Forte was listed as questionable on the injury report and participated in just one practice session during the week on a limited basis. RB Bilal Powell's presence, combined with Denver's success against the run, means that Forte should be viewed as nothing more than a RB3 or flex option in most fantasy formats.

Jets | Matt Forte questionable for Week 14

Fri, 08 Dec 2017 15:38:59 -0800

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) did not practice Friday, Dec. 8, and he is listed as questionable for the Week 14 game against the Denver Broncos.

Fantasy Tip: Forte is a risky play for the weekend, especially with Bilal Powell healthy and ready to go. Use the veteran Forte as a RB3 or flex fantasy play in PPR leagues, and a low-end RB3 in standard play, if he is active.

Jets | Matt Forte wants to play in 2018

Thu, 07 Dec 2017 19:29:44 -0800

New York Jets RB Matt Forte said he wants to return for another season in 2018. "I never question myself," Forte said. "I'm still playing at a high level when I'm able to play, and I think I can continue to do it."

Fantasy Tip: A knee injury has cost Forte some time this year, and his days as a RB1 are over. That being said, he has put up decent numbers when healthy, and he should be a solid flex option against the Denver Broncos in Week 14.

Jets | Matt Forte upgraded to limited

Thu, 07 Dec 2017 11:16:32 -0800

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Forte being upgraded lessens Bilal Powell's value. On top of that, the Denver Broncos are seventh best in the NFL in rushing yards allowed to running backs this year. Forte is merely a flex play if he's active.
