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.

Jets | Matt Forte unlikely to play

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.
