2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
The Jets replaced the steady hard-running Chris Ivory with the more versatile veteran Matt Forte this off-season. Forte should be a much better fit Chan Gailey’s offense than Ivory, but lacks the power and toughness that his predecessor brought to the table. Forte has consistently been one of the better receiving backs in the league, hitting a high-water mark of 102 receptions in 2014. He’s been remarkably consistent and durable through his eight seasons in the league but at 30 years of age and coming off of an injury marred season, it’s fair to ask what he has left in the tank. The offseason chatter has suggested Forte will get “plenty of rest”, and the team does have a solid stable of running backs behind the veteran. However, it’s hard to imagine Forte not being the main running back in any type of committee the team employs. He was still effective last season, averaging 4.1 yards per carry and catching 44 passes with seven total touchdowns in 13 games. Forte should thrive in an offensive system that fits his style where Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker will command the focus of the defense. He may lose some goaline carries to Khiry Robinson and some snaps to Bilal Powell, there’s no reason to think he can’t be a solid RB2 who will come at a cheaper price tag than many runners that have more perceived “upside” but will likely be less productive by season’s end.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Bilal Powell absent from practice Thursday
Brandon Marshall, Robby Anderson miss too
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Dec 29, 1:15 pm

New York Jets
Brandon Marshall, Bilal Powell, Robby Anderson, Matt Forte, Steve McLendon among today's DNPs. (Jets on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Powell's absence is said to be related to an illness meaning the only healthy RB is Brandon Burks. If Powell, doesn't play the running back position for the Jets will be one to avoid. This team is a mess with Ryan Fitzpatrick getting the call at quarterback against the Bills.


Injury Matt Forte doubtful, knee shoulder injuries
Bilal Powell, great play in Week 16
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Dec 23, 2:00 pm

New York Jets
New York Jets running back Matt Forte is doubtful to play against the New England Patriots on Saturday because of knee and shoulder injuries. (AP)

FFToday's Take: With Forte out, Bilal Powell becomes an easy RB1 even against the Patriots given the amount of volume he should see. Powell has racked up 61 touches in the last two weeks.


Injury Matt Forte is active
Knee injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Dec 17, 7:00 pm

New York Jets
For the #Jets, RB Matt Forte (knee) is officially active vs #Dolphins. Good news. He worked out pregame to be sure (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It doesn't make a lot of sense for Forte to be active given his knee injury last week and the Jets season circling the drain but nonetheless he's going to suit up against the Dolphins. It's hard to imagine Forte getting more snaps than Bilal Powell but this is certainly a ding to Powell's upside.


Injury Matt Forte to play Saturday night?
Limited in practice Thursday
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Dec 15, 2:15 pm

New York Jets
Six players didn't practice today for the Jets, including CB Buster Skrine, RT Brent Qvale, LB Lorenzo Mauldin and DT Steve McLendon, who has been ruled out for Saturday night. Qvale will be a game-time decision. RB Matt Forte (knee) was limited; the sense is he will play. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Forte is dealing with a torn meniscus but the team is labeling Forte as a gametime decision. Even if he plays, its hard to imagine Forte getting the lead share of carries with Bilal Powell fully capable of handling a heavy load. The Jets and Dolphins play Saturday night so we should get a clearer picture of his true status on Friday.


Jets sign C.J. Spiller
New York waives Knile Davis a day after claiming him off waivers
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Nov 2, 9:07 pm

New York Jets
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) -- The New York Jets hope C.J. Spiller can help boost their backfield with some speed and versatility. The veteran running back was officially signed Wednesday, and the Jets waived running back Knile Davis a day after claiming him off waivers. (AP Sports)

FFToday's Take: After being jettisoned by the Seahawks, C.J. Spiller will add some much needed depth behind Matt Forte and Bilal Powell. Meanwhile, Knile Davis's fantasy prospects are back on the decline after being let go by two teams in one week.
