Jets | Matt Forte fully practices

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 13:26:09 -0700

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee, toe) participated fully in practice Thursday, Oct. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Forte's fantasy value largely depends on Bilal Powell's status and Powell's status looks promising for Week 7. New York's backfield is somewhat of a crapshoot with Powell, Forte and Elijah McGuire, so start them at your own risk. Powell does possess the most upside.

Jets | Matt Forte limited in practice

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 15:09:44 -0700

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee, toe) was limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Forte rewarded owners who took a chance on him last week in their PPR matchups, catching 8 passes for 59 yards and gaining 22 yards on the ground. Forte's rushing effort left something to be desired, but he'll be a PPR flex candidate again if Bilal Powell misses another week.

Jets | Matt Forte has solid outing

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 14:03:13 -0700

New York Jets RB Matt Forte rushed for 22 yards on nine carries against the New England Patriots in Week 6. He also caught eight passes for 59 yards during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Forte received most of the work at running back this week with Bilal Powell sidelined and could receive a similar role next week. He could be a flex option in leagues next week if he receives a similar workload.

Jets | Matt Forte not on injury report

Fri, 13 Oct 2017 15:36:15 -0700

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee, toe) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 13, and is not on the injury report for Week 6.

Fantasy Tip: It appears like Forte will be in uniform in Week 6 and likely will share work with Elijah McGuire. He should have a favorable matchup his week against the New England Patriots and could be a flex option in deeper leagues.

Jets | Matt Forte likely to go Week 6

Fri, 13 Oct 2017 10:16:37 -0700

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (toe) logged a full practice Friday, Oct. 13, and is expected to return from a two-game absence and play in Week 6 versus the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: Forte was limited in practice Wednesday and Thursday, but he has apparently shown the coaches and trainers enough in practice to get the green light after dealing with turf toe. The fact he has been limited in practice this week suggests Elijah McGuire is the better play in fantasy, although it is entirely possible Forte sees a lot of work as a receiver in garbage if the Patriots race out to an early lead.

Jets | Matt Forte limited Thursday

Thu, 12 Oct 2017 11:15:06 -0700

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee, toe) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Forte appears have a chance to play this week but may see limited time because of the injury. He has had some success this season but can be avoided in most leagues this week.

Jets | Matt Forte listed as limited participant

Wed, 11 Oct 2017 15:09:50 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee, toe) was listed as a limited participant for practice Wednesday, Oct. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Forte has missed the past two games due to his ailment, but it appears he is progressing and getting closer to a return to game action. If both Forte and Bilal Powell are sidelined look for Elijah McGuire to get the starting nod in Week 6 against the New England Patriots.

Jets | Matt Forte, Bilal Powell unable to practice

Wed, 11 Oct 2017 10:56:49 -0700

New York Jets RBs Matt Forte (toe) and Bilal Powell (calf) did not practice Wednesday, Oct. 11, although Forte did warm up with the team.

Fantasy Tip: Forte has missed each of the last two games but appears much closer to playing than Powell, who was forced from the game early in Week 5. It's too early to say whether or not Forte will play in Week 6 versus the New England Patriots, and it's probably a good bet Elijah McGuire will draw the start even if Forte returns to full practice at some point this week. The case can be made for McGuire as a low-end flex this week, but it is mostly a situation to avoid in fantasy this week.
