Huddle Up: Forte was among the most dominant two-way fantasy backs of the past 20 years, but he has been a shell of his former self in recent years. Father Time caught up, as he always does. The Jets will have at least one running back hole to fill entering free agency and the draft season.
Posted: 2/2/2018 2:45pm ET
Huddle Up: The Jets may consider releasing Forte this offseason, so he could be playing with a new team in 2018. He probably will not be a starting running back for a team but find a decent role with a team because of his receiving abilities. He can be a late-round pick in deeper drafts next season depending on his role.

Huddle Up: Bilal Powell should receive most of the playing time at running back this week against the New England Patriots and can be a No. 2 fantasy receiver in most leagues.
Posted: 12/29/2017 3:14pm ET
Huddle Up: Forte has been nicked up for the better part of the final month. He has been able to continue playing, but he isn't someone to rely upon in seasonal fantasy leagues or DFS at this point.
Posted: 12/28/2017 4:06pm ET
Huddle Up: The club's Week 17 contest is the opposite of ideal in terms of utilizing any Jets running back, as the Patriots are expected to blow them out for the majority of the afternoon. Thus, New York will probably be throwing often while trailing, which doesn't leave much work for the backfield. Even if Forte plays, he's not someone worth starting.
Posted: 12/27/2017 3:37pm ET
Huddle Up: Forte probably will return to practice later in the week and should be in uniform this week. He has received less than 10 touches in each of the last three games and probably can be benched in most fantasy leagues.
Posted: 12/24/2017 2:48pm ET
Huddle Up: Forte continues to be involved in the running and passing game but has not posted more than 50 total yards in any of the last three games. He could be aa flex option in deeper leagues next week, but owners in most leagues should be able to find better options.
Posted: 12/24/2017 9:05am ET
Huddle Up: Forte will play despite not practicing at all during the week. He will be splitting carries with Elijah McGuire and Bilal Powell and shouldn't be viewed as anything more than a risky flex option in deeper fantasy leagues.
Posted: 12/22/2017 3:09pm ET
Huddle Up: Forte is banged up and isn't worth a roll of the dice for fantasy owners at a crucial juncture of the season. Plus, he is likely to split touches in the backfield with Elijah McGuire and Bilal Powell, so he'll see 10-12 touches at best.
Posted: 12/21/2017 11:14am ET
Huddle Up: It would make sense for the Jets to simply hold out their veteran running back for the final two games of the season since they're out of playoff contention. Forte can be benched even if he plays. He's too risky with a fantasy title on the line.
Posted: 12/20/2017 5:36pm ET
Huddle Up: Forte should have a decent chance to play this week even though he missed practice. He received eight touches in Week 15 and probably would receive a similar workload if he is active in Week 16. He could be a flex option in some deeper leagues but is not a great fantasy option.
Posted: 12/17/2017 6:08pm ET
Huddle Up: Forte faced a tough matchup against a hungry Saints defense, and it won't get any easy against the Chargers in Week 16. Treat Forte more as a RB4 heading into Week 16.
Posted: 12/17/2017 9:04am ET
Huddle Up: Forte had been listed as questionable on the injury report but was unable to practice during the week. He will be splitting carries with Bilal Powell and Elijah McGuire and is not a recommended fantasy option this afternoon.
Posted: 12/15/2017 1:35pm ET
Huddle Up: Forte is a risky fantasy play, as Bilal Powell is healthy and so is Elijah McGuire. The team might give Forte limited touches even if he is able to play, so be careful.
Posted: 12/14/2017 11:06am ET
Huddle Up: Forte has not practiced for two consecutive days now, so his Week 15 status is becoming murkier. If he is unable to play then Bilal Powell will see a good chunk of touches with Elijah McGuire also being involved. If Forte sits then Powell deserves flex consideration.
Posted: 12/13/2017 2:35pm ET
Huddle Up: Forte has been banged up for a good chunk of the season, posting 388 rushing yards with two scores and 34 grabs for 276 yards and one touchdown. He can be a useful low-end RB3 or flex play in PPR formats, but is more of a RB4 in standard play at this point.
Posted: 12/10/2017 7:49pm ET
Huddle Up: Forte had been nursing a knee injury all week, so the limited role wasn't a big surprise. Even when fully healthy, he has been splitting time with Bilal Powell, and Forte is no more than a desperation flex play at this point.
Posted: 12/10/2017 12:00pm ET
Huddle Up: Forte will share playing time with Bilal Powell against the Denver Broncos. He should be involved in the running and passing game this week and can be a flex option in most leagues.
Posted: 12/10/2017 6:46am ET
Huddle Up: Forte was listed as questionable on the injury report and participated in just one practice session during the week on a limited basis. RB Bilal Powell's presence, combined with Denver's success against the run, means that Forte should be viewed as nothing more than a RB3 or flex option in most fantasy formats.
Posted: 12/8/2017 3:38pm ET
Huddle Up: Forte is a risky play for the weekend, especially with Bilal Powell healthy and ready to go. Use the veteran Forte as a RB3 or flex fantasy play in PPR leagues, and a low-end RB3 in standard play, if he is active.
Posted: 12/7/2017 7:29pm ET
Huddle Up: A knee injury has cost Forte some time this year, and his days as a RB1 are over. That being said, he has put up decent numbers when healthy, and he should be a solid flex option against the Denver Broncos in Week 14.
Posted: 12/7/2017 11:16am ET
Huddle Up: Forte being upgraded lessens Bilal Powell's value. On top of that, the Denver Broncos are seventh best in the NFL in rushing yards allowed to running backs this year. Forte is merely a flex play if he's active.
Posted: 12/6/2017 12:36pm ET
Huddle Up: It's not crunch time for Forte's status just yet, but he has missed games this year after not practicing. If he doesn't play then Bilal Powell and Elijah McGuire will man the backfield against a Denver Broncos defense that has struggled versus the run of late. Powell would be a flex play at least.
Posted: 12/3/2017 2:41pm ET
Huddle Up: Forte has been sharing playing time with the other running backs on the roster but has posted solid numbers over the last several weeks. He can be a flex option in some fantasy leagues next week because of his role in the running and passing game.
Posted: 12/3/2017 9:03am ET
Huddle Up: Forte will be part of a committee at running back against the Kansas City Chiefs but should receive a decent amount of targets during the game. He will be a risky option for owners but can be a flex option in some deeper leagues.
Posted: 12/1/2017 3:32pm ET
Huddle Up: Forte probably will be able to play in Week 13, but owners will need to check the inactive list to make sure. He struggled last week and probably will be part of a committee at running back if he plays. Owners probably should avoid Forte in most fantasy leagues this week.
Posted: 11/30/2017 10:56am ET
Huddle Up: At 4-7, it would make sense for the Jets to just shut down their veteran running back instead of risking further injury or aggravation. It's no guarantee that Forte will play, but if he does he's too risky to start.
Posted: 11/29/2017 2:55pm ET
Huddle Up: Forte was likely just getting a mid-week veteran's rest to let his bumps and bruises have a day off. He was able to play last week against the Panthers, but he didn't do much. He faces another difficult matchup against the skidding, yet still dangerous, Chiefs in Week 13.
Posted: 11/26/2017 6:49pm ET
Huddle Up: Forte was able to shake off a knee injury to play, which is the good news, but the bad news is he managed just 2.6 yards per game and his second-lowest yardage total from scrimmage. He remains nothing more than a RB3 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 13 against the Chiefs.
Posted: 11/26/2017 9:08am ET
Huddle Up: Forte had been listed as questionable on the injury report after participating in the team's two most recent practices during the week on a limited basis. He's worthy of consideration this afternoon as a flex option in deeper fantasy leagues.
Posted: 11/26/2017 5:47am ET
Huddle Up: Forte is listed as questionable on the injury report and was a limited participant in the team's two most recent practice sessions during the week. He should be viewed as a risky flex option in deeper fantasy leagues if he is active. If Forte doesn't play, Bilal Powell and Elijah McGuire will split carries in the backfield, with Powell being the better option for PPR formats.
Posted: 11/24/2017 12:46pm ET
Huddle Up: Forte may have a chance to play in Week 12 since he was on the field for some drills Friday, but owners will need to check the inactive list. He has played well over the last few weeks but would be a risky option if he is active this week. He could be a flex option in some deeper leagues.
Posted: 11/23/2017 1:10pm ET
Huddle Up: It doesn't look like Forte will be suiting up this weekend, which means Bilal Powell and Elijah McGuire will comprise the two-man backfield again. Powell disappointed in his last game, but he's still a flex option at worst and has more value in PPR leagues.
Posted: 11/22/2017 3:19pm ET
Huddle Up: Forte hasn't done much since Nov. 2 against the Buffalo Bills, and beat writer Andy Vazquez says his injury is a major concern. Fantasy owners should avoid him completely until he is healthy enough to play again. It sounds like that could be a ways off.
Posted: 11/10/2017 6:33pm ET
Huddle Up: Forte has already been ruled out for Week 10, making Bilal Powell a RB2 candidate in PPR formats against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Posted: 11/10/2017 8:14am ET
Huddle Up: Forte looks doubtful to go in Week 10. Bilal Powell would be an attractive RB2 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who are one of the worst teams against the position the last five weeks.
Posted: 11/9/2017 9:06am ET
Huddle Up: He has swelling in his troublesome knee, and he might be in danger of missing Week 10 after a big week last week. Friday will be pivotal for the RB2 in fantasy.
Posted: 11/8/2017 11:16pm ET
Huddle Up: Forte has only missed one game this season, but when you hear the word 'swelling' in conjunction with 'surgically repaired' it's a concern -- especially when you consider the team hasn't done anything since last Thursday. Keep a close eye on the situation as the week progresses and be ready to deploy alternatives if Forte has to sit this Sunday.
Posted: 11/8/2017 12:34pm ET
Huddle Up: Forte has missed or been limited in practice plenty of times this season, but he has only missed one game. The veteran back has been steadily involved in the Jets' offense over the last few weeks and demands at least flex consideration with more value in PPR leagues.
Posted: 11/2/2017 8:56pm ET
Huddle Up: It was Forte's best rushing performance of the year by a wide margin, and he found the end zone for the first time. This was probably the ceiling for the veteran, but with 29 catches on the year, he remains a viable flex option in PPR formats.
Posted: 11/1/2017 12:09pm ET
Huddle Up: Forte will be good to go tomorrow night, but he faces a top notch Buffalo Bills rush defense. He's mainly been involved in the passing game anyway and should only be started as a PPR flex.
Posted: 10/31/2017 3:44pm ET
Huddle Up: Forte isn't going away after dealing with an injury earlier this season too. He has played an integral role in the Jets' passing game out of the backfield even with Bilal Powell healthy, but his rushing leaves something to be desired. Forte cannot be viewed as more than a flex in PPR leagues.
Posted: 10/30/2017 4:20pm ET
Huddle Up: Forte received 10 touches in Week 8 and has been involved in the passing game over the last several weeks. He will continue to share playing time with Bilal Powell but could be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues.
Posted: 10/29/2017 7:58pm ET
Huddle Up: The Jets actually passed 37 times while running 21 times, which was surprising during a sloppy, rainy game. Forte's public criticism of the OC isn't likely to be popular with the brass, however, even if he was correct. He remains a fantasy reserve in most formats at this point of his career.
Posted: 10/29/2017 1:59pm ET
Huddle Up: Forte had a big role in the passing game over the last three weeks and has caught at least five passes in each of those games. He should be considered a flex option in point-per-reception leagues because of his role.
Posted: 10/27/2017 12:12pm ET
Huddle Up: Forte recorded 82 total yards last week and should receive a similar role against the Atlanta Falcons. Owners in deeper leagues can consider Forte as a flex option in Week 8.
Posted: 10/26/2017 11:16am ET
Huddle Up: You never want to see a player take a step back in his practice participation. If Forte can get back to being full go on Friday then he can be considered as a flex, but his ceiling is greatly lowered when Bilal Powell is healthy.
Posted: 10/25/2017 3:02pm ET
Huddle Up: Forte has strung together back-to-back respectable performances, but he's just not doing enough to warrant starter consideration. His ceiling is much lower with Bilal Powell active, too, so don't start Forte unless you're desperate.
