Recent Player News

  • Posted: 2/28/2018 9:16am ET

    New York Jets RB Matt Forte announced his retirement from the NFL Wednesday, Feb. 28.

    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

    New York Jets RB Matt Forte said he wants to play next season.

    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.

  • Posted: 12/30/2017 12:30pm ET

    New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Dec. 30.

    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

    New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) did not practice Friday, Dec. 29, and he is listed as questionable for the Week 17 game against the New England Patriots.

    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

    New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) missed practice for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 28.

    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

    New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 27.

    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

    New York Jets RB Matt Forte rushed for 19 yards on eight carries against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 16. He also caught one pass for seven yards during the game.

    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

    New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) is active for Week 16's game against the Los Angeles Chargers.

    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

    New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) did not practice for a third straight day Friday, Dec. 22, and he is listed as questionable for Week 16 against the Los Angeles Chargers.

    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

    New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) was held out of practice again Thursday, Dec. 21.

    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

    New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 20.

    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

    New York Jets RB Matt Forte rushed seven times for 24 yards in Week 15 against the New Orleans Saints and he added two grabs for 10 yards.

    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

    New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) is active for Week 15's game against the New Orleans Saints.

    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

    New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) did not practice Friday, Dec. 15, and he is listed as questionable for the Week 15 game against the New Orleans Saints.

    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

    New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) sat out of practice Thursday, Dec. 14.

    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

    New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 13.

    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.
