Jets | Matt Forte works with team Tuesday

Tue, 22 Aug 2017 12:29:41 -0700

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (hamstring) participated in team drills Tuesday, Aug. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Forte has been battling a nagging hamstring ailment for a few weeks now. It's not a good start to the season, but he could still be ready for the opener. That being said, Bilal Powell is the back to own on the Jets as an RB2 candidate. Forte merely has flex appeal.

Jets | Matt Forte in question for Week 1?

Mon, 21 Aug 2017 12:22:13 -0700

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (hamstring) is not guaranteed to be healthy enough to play by Week 1, according to head coach Todd Bowles.

Fantasy Tip: Forte is starting this season off on the wrong foot. He will have handed the backfield baton off to Bilal Powell even if healthy, but the longer Forte remains absent, the better for Powell. Powell is a legitimate PPR RB2 with Forte more suitable as a flex.

Jets | Matt Forte won't play Saturday

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 12:03:08 -0700

New York Jets WRB Matt Forte (hamstring) will not practice Thursday, Aug. 17, and will not be playing in the Jets' second preseason game Saturday, Aug. 19.

Fantasy Tip: The nagging hamstring injury is becoming somewhat of a concern for the 31-year-old running back. It doesn't seem to be serious enough for him to miss regular season time, but it should be monitored. Bilal Powell is the running back to own on the Jets anyway. Forte is no more than a flex consideration at this point in his career.

Jets | Matt Forte remains limited

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 15:58:50 -0700

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (hamstring) was limited to individual drills during practice Wednesday, Aug. 16, and is not expected to play in the preseason game against the Detroit Lions Saturday, Aug. 19.

Fantasy Tip: The Jets likely are taking things slow with Forte, and it appears he has a chance to be ready for the start of the regular season. He is expected to share snaps with Bilal Powell this season but may serve as the No. 2 running back for the Jets. Owners can consider Forte a No. 3 or No. 4 running back in most leagues.

Jets | Bilal Powell, Matt Forte limited

Mon, 14 Aug 2017 15:30:08 -0700

New York Jets RBs Bilal Powell (neck) and RB Matt Forte (hamstring) were limited to positional drills during practice Monday, Aug. 14.

Fantasy Tip: It appears that Powell and Forte are making progress but they probably will miss the second preseason game. Both have a good chance to be ready for the start of the regular season, but owners will need to monitor the situation. Powell could receive more of the snaps at running back this season, but Forte will also be involved in the offense. Powell can be a low-end No. 2 or a No. 3 running back, while Forte is more of a No. 3 back.

Jets | Bilal Powell, Matt Forte unlikely to play

Wed, 09 Aug 2017 15:57:17 -0700

New York Jets RB Bilal Powell (neck) and RB Matt Forte (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Aug. 9, and are not expected to play in the preseason game against the Tennessee Titans Saturday, Aug. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Powell and Forte continue to be sidelined by their injuries, so their status for the second preseason game is uncertain. They are expected to share work at running back this season, but Powell may see more touches in the offense. Powell can be a low-end No. 2 or a No. 3 running back in most standard leagues, while Forte could be a low-end No. 3 back.

Jets | Matt Forte, Bilal Powell still out

Tue, 08 Aug 2017 18:07:10 -0700

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (hamstring) and RB Bilal Powell (neck) did not participate in practice Tuesday, Aug. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Forte and Powell have both missed several practices, but the team probably will not bring them back until they are 100 percent since they will have big roles in the offense. Both are expected to receive a solid amount of playing time, but Powell may receive more of the snaps during the season. Powell can be considered a low-end No. 2 or No. 3 running back in leagues, while Forte could be a low-end No. 3 back.

Jets | Matt Forte limited Monday

Mon, 07 Aug 2017 15:28:43 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Jets RB Matt Forte (hamstring) did some light work during practice Monday, Aug. 7, but sat out team drills.

Fantasy Tip: Forte is slowly working his way back from his hamstring injury and may be limited for a few more days. He will be sharing snaps with Bilal Powell this season, which probably will hurt his value. Owners should consider him a No. 3 running back in most leagues.

Jets | Matt Forte back practicing

Mon, 07 Aug 2017 11:35:44 -0700

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (hamstring) returned to practice Monday, Aug. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Don't be surprised to see the Jets take it easy with their veteran runner going forward. Bilal Powell essentially supplanted Forte last season as the Jets' most fantasy relevant running back. Powell and Forte are RB2 and RB3 PPR options, respectively.

Jets | Matt Forte remains sidelined

Fri, 04 Aug 2017 15:06:45 -0700

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (hamstring) did not participate in practice Friday, Aug. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Forte probably will not return until he is completely recovered from his hamstring injury. Forte is expected to share snaps with Bilal Powell this season but probably will receive a majority of the carries during the season. He probably can be considered a No. 3 running back in most fantasy leagues.
