Huddle Up: Forte will be part of a committee at running back this week, but he did receive most of the touches among the backs in Week 2. He will be facing a solid Miami Dolphins defense but could be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues since he could have a role in the passing game.
Posted: 9/21/2017 11:16am ET
Huddle Up: Powell entered the season as the starting running back, but Forte leads the team in rushing yards with 69 yards. Powell and Forte can still be flex options in point-per-reception leagues because of their pass-catching abilities. Owners can avoid McGuire for the time being.
Posted: 9/20/2017 2:36pm ET
Huddle Up: Forte and the Jets' running attack have been nearly non-existent over the season's first two games. We anticipated the Jets falling behind and having to throw a lot this season, though. Forte should remain on fantasy benches for now even when he's healthy.
Posted: 9/17/2017 8:10pm ET
Huddle Up: Forte has remained involved as both a runner and receiver so far this year, and if he can stay healthy, he looks like a potential RB3.
Posted: 9/15/2017 2:45pm ET
Huddle Up: Forte probably will see a similar workload this week but is facing a solid Oakland Raiders defense. Owners in all leagues should keep Forte on the bench.
Posted: 9/14/2017 12:44pm ET
Huddle Up: Forte will remain the No. 2 running back as long as Bilal Powell is healthy. He should receive a handful of touches in Week 2 but can be avoided in all fantasy leagues.
Posted: 9/13/2017 5:01pm ET
Huddle Up: Forte should be ready to play in Week 2 unless he suffers a setback during the week. He was limited to 30 total yards on nine touches and probably will see a similar amount of work this week. Owners should be able to find better options to use in their lineups and can avoid Forte.
Posted: 9/10/2017 3:55pm ET
Huddle Up: Buffalo was near the bottom with its run defense last year, averaging over 133 yards given up on the ground. The fact the Bills did this to New York is not a good sign for either back. Forte may still be a flex option for deeper leagues, but the Jets' QB issues means the running game may not get the respect.
Posted: 9/7/2017 3:25pm ET
Huddle Up: Forte should be in uniform in Week 1 against the Buffalo Bills and will share work with Bilal Powell. Forte could be a decent flex option for owners in deeper leagues because he will see a decent amount of touches.
Posted: 9/7/2017 1:00pm ET
Huddle Up: It will be interesting to see how involved Forte is this week. Bilal Powell is New York's No. 1 running back now, but Forte still has some gas in the tank. There is hesitation in deeming him a flex starter for Week 1, but you can do worse.
Posted: 9/6/2017 2:35pm ET
Huddle Up: That's the good news. The bad news is that Bilal Powell (ribs) was also a full participant, and he is expected to be the bigger contributor in the Gang Green backfield. Forte has devolved into an RB3 or flex option in most fantasy formats after years being a first-round selection in Chicago.
Posted: 8/31/2017 7:51pm ET
Huddle Up: Forte will share playing time with Bilal Powell if he stays with the Jets but should see a decent amount of touches each game. Owners could consider him a No. 3 running back or a flex option in most leagues.
Posted: 8/31/2017 2:44pm ET
Huddle Up: It was recently reported that Forte was being shopped, so the fact that he may be cut shouldn't come as a huge surprise. This is Powell's backfield and McGuire has already shown he can be a promising backup. For now, view Forte as no more than a flex. He could still be picked up by another team if released.
Posted: 8/29/2017 10:10am ET
Huddle Up: It's not a surprise considering the fire sale the Jets have been running the better part of the offseason, and partially explains why he saw so much time ahead of Bilal Powell in the team's dress rehearsal game last weekend against the New York Giants. Moving him will be difficult considering is $4 million guaranteed salary, so it is more likely he'll be spending the season working in tandem with Powell. He's a low-end, low-upside RB4 at best at the moment.
Posted: 8/26/2017 7:47pm ET
Huddle Up: Bilal Powell is going to eat into his workload, especially on passing downs, but don't write off Forte completely. He is currently healthy and could see a lot of work on early downs. Forte could be a solid value as a RB4.
Posted: 8/23/2017 3:38pm ET
Huddle Up: Forte would see limited touches if he plays against the Giants and should be on the field for Week 1 unless he suffers a setback. He may not be the starter but should see a solid amount of touches this season. Owners can consider Forte a No. 3 running back or flex option.
Posted: 8/22/2017 12:29pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 8/21/2017 12:22pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 8/17/2017 12:03pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 8/16/2017 3:58pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 8/14/2017 3:30pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 8/9/2017 3:57pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 8/8/2017 6:07pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 8/7/2017 3:28pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 8/7/2017 11:35am ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 8/4/2017 3:06pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 8/1/2017 4:21pm ET
Huddle Up: As stated earlier, Forte figures to hand the proverbial baton to Bilal Powell this year. Forte should not be forgotten, however. He's worth a look as a flex and provides a top-end handcuff for Powell owners.
Posted: 8/1/2017 12:19pm ET
Huddle Up: The injury doesn't appear to be serious, but it's worth monitoring. Bilal Powell is the Jets' running back to own this year, but Forte isn't a pushover. He's still a mid-round consideration at 31 years old.
Posted: 7/31/2017 1:46pm ET
Huddle Up: Forte may be given some time off or not practice as much in an effort to avoid aggravating the tweak. Forte has stayed relatively healthy throughout his nine-year NFL career, but 2017 could very well be the year Bilal Powell takes the reins from the veteran back. Forte is a decent flex option and a viable 'handcuff' for those who draft Powell.
Posted: 6/23/2017 7:38am ET
Huddle Up: Forte will be 32 late in the season, and the signs of age have been showing for a couple of years now. Bilal Powell is also waiting in the wings, which doesn't lend to conventional wisdom to use Forte as the workhorse. Forte is still a useful PPR back, but it's only as an RB3.
Posted: 6/14/2017 6:21am ET
Huddle Up: Forte turns 32 in December and is oft-injured. His seven rushing touchdowns last season were the most he has had since 2013, but his 3.7 yards per carry was the second-lowest average of his career. He's still a serviceable RB3 in PPR leagues, but the upside is minimal.
Posted: 5/23/2017 11:31am ET
Huddle Up: This isn't positive news for Powell, who was expected by many to take over New York's backfield. He still could, but Forte won't be pushed aside easily. Powell remains the more valuable back from a fantasy perspective and should be viewed as a low-end RB2 to high-end RB3 with added profit in PPR leagues. Forte is more of a flex consideration, although he could see more goal-line carries.
Posted: 1/27/2017 4:46pm ET
Huddle Up: Forte lost some of his touches during the season half of the season and finished the season on the Reserve/Injured list because of a knee injury. He probably would be part of a committee if he stays with the Jets but could still be a No. 3 running back for owners depending on his role.
Posted: 1/2/2017 10:46am ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 12/30/2016 1:24pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 12/30/2016 11:10am ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 12/29/2016 9:39am ET
Huddle Up: Forte probably will need to practice Friday, Dec. 30, if he wants a chance to play in Week 17, so owners will need to monitor the situation. He has struggled in the last four games and probably should be avoided in all leagues because he likely will be limited if he plays.
Posted: 12/29/2016 8:15am ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 12/28/2016 2:26pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 12/27/2016 10:42am ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 12/24/2016 8:48am ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 12/24/2016 7:33am ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 12/23/2016 3:45pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 12/22/2016 9:41am ET
Huddle Up: Owners will need to check the inactive list to see if Forte plays, but there is a chance that Forte could be limited if he plays. Owners could consider Forte as a low-end No. 2 back or a flex option if he plays. Bilal Powell would see most of the work at running back is Forte sits out and would be a fine No. 2 back for owners.
Posted: 12/21/2016 7:01pm ET
Huddle Up: If Forte is unable to suit up Saturday it would be Bilal Powell handling the lion's share of the backfield chores. If Powell is still available off the waiver wire after his big performance in Week 15, grab him immediately.
Posted: 12/21/2016 1:46pm ET
Huddle Up: Owners should know more about Forte's status later in the week. Forte can be a low-end No. 2 running back or a flex option if he plays but will be a risky option. Bilal Powell could be an attractive player for fantasy owners if Forte is ruled out.
Posted: 12/17/2016 8:40pm ET
Huddle Up: Forte is dealing with a torn meniscus, and the Jets took it easy on the veteran. Don't be surprised if the trend continues for the remainder of the season.
Posted: 12/17/2016 4:02pm ET
Huddle Up: It's a bummer for Bilal Powell owners, although it is entirely possible Forte plays a cameo role in a plus-matchup. Given that possibility, it would be difficult to start Forte in fantasy. As for Powell, owners now have reason to bench him if they were torn between multiple options. The odds are strong, however, Powell sees the bulk of the workload and performs like a RB2.
Posted: 12/16/2016 11:26am ET
Huddle Up: Forte is expected to be a game-time decision, although Jets' reporters believe he will play. His presence would be a blow to the rising fantasy stock of Bilal Powell, who many owners were hoping could carry them to a fantasy championship in what appears to be a plus-matchup in Week 15 against the Miami Dolphins. Forte is too risky to trust in fantasy this week, but he could also make Powell hard to trust too if he is active.
Posted: 12/15/2016 9:41am ET
Huddle Up: Forte will be a game-time decision for Week 15, so owners will need to check the inactive list before deciding on their lineup. He would be a risky option if he is active because he could see limited snaps during the game. Owners could use him as a flex options but will need other options ready.
