Jets | Full practice for Matt Forte

Thu, 08 Dec 2016 15:16:50 -0800

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee, foot) participated fully in practice Thursday, Dec. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Forte may have the best matchup of any running back this week against the San Francisco 49ers, although, the 49ers may focus on him defensively with Bryce Petty at quarterback. Even so, Forte is a low-end RB1 to high-end RB2 option.

Jets | Matt Forte listed as limited

Wed, 07 Dec 2016 15:00:43 -0800

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (foot, knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Forte probably will receive a bigger role on offense with Bryce Petty as the starting quarterback. He had been held to 52 yards and zero touchdowns over the last two games and probably will see more defenders in the box moving forward. He should be considered a No. 2 running back or a flex option in leagues.

Jets | Matt Forte doesn't do much

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 21:40:10 -0800

New York Jets RB Matt Forte rushed nine times for just 25 yards in the Week 13 game against the Indianapolis Colts Monday, Dec. 5, and he managed three catches for 54 yards on four targets.

Fantasy Tip: The Jets got away from the run in a blowout loss, but Forte did salvage the stat line with one 40-yard reception. It wasn't a huge stat line, but likely just enough for some fantasy owners. He'll look to rebound in Week 14 against the San Francisco 49ers, the league's worst rushing defense.

Jets | Matt Forte full go

Thu, 24 Nov 2016 14:42:32 -0800

New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) put in a full practice Thursday, Nov. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Forte is an every-week fantasy starter as long as he's healthy. Despite big workloads throughout his career, he's turned in a quality season in his first year with the Jets. Forte has RB1 upside but is safer as an RB2 this week against the New England Patriots.
