Analysis: Forte might not be a fantasy option from here on out as the Jets begin to look to the future.
Dec. 10, 2017 5:47 PM PT6:47 PM MT7:47 PM CT8:47 PM ET1:47 GMT9:47 6:47 PM MST8:47 PM EST7:47 PM CT5:47 UAE (+1)20:47 ETNaN:� - Matt Forte ran for 13 yards on six carries Sunday in the New York Jets' 23-0 loss to the Denver Broncos. He added two receptions for 21 yards.
Dec. 3, 2017 2:25 PM PT3:25 PM MT4:25 PM CT5:25 PM ET22:25 GMT6:25 3:25 PM MST5:25 PM EST4:25 PM CT2:25 UAE (+1)17:25 ETNaN:� - Matt Forte ran for 58 yards on 15 carries Sunday in the New York Jets' 38-31 win over the Kansas City Chiefs. He added three receptions for 33 yards and one touchdown.
Analysis: Forte had a solid performance after he managed just 26 yards on 10 carries and didn't record a catch last week against the Panthers.
Dec. 1, 2017 3:09 PM PT4:09 PM MT5:09 PM CT6:09 PM ET23:09 GMT7:09 4:09 PM MST6:09 PM EST5:09 PM CT3:09 UAE (+1)18:09 ETNaN:� - The Jets have listed Forte (knee) as active for Sunday's game against Kansas City.
Analysis: The veteran running back did return from a one-game absence last week against Carolina, but managed just 26 yards on 10 carries and didn't record a catch.
Nov. 26, 2017 1:17 PM PT2:17 PM MT3:17 PM CT4:17 PM ET21:17 GMT5:17 2:17 PM MST4:17 PM EST3:17 PM CT1:17 UAE (+1)16:17 ETNaN:� - Matt Forte ran for 26 yards on 10 carries Sunday in the New York Jets' 35-27 loss to the Carolina Panthers.
Analysis: It's a mystery why Forte keeps getting carries for a team that's going nowhere.
Nov. 22, 2017 2:19 PM PT3:19 PM MT4:19 PM CT5:19 PM ET22:19 GMT6:19 3:19 PM MST5:19 PM EST4:19 PM CT2:19 UAE (+1)17:19 ETNaN:� - Forte will play Sunday despite dealing with an ailing knee.
Analysis: Forte, who turns 32 on Dec. 10, missed the Jets' past couple of games with swelling in his surgically repaired right knee. He ran for a season-best 77 yards against Buffalo on Nov. 2, but recently said he has been dealing with swelling in the knee for "a while" and it worsened. Forte had arthroscopic surgery on the knee at the end of last season to repair a torn meniscus.
Nov. 9, 2017 7:39 AM PT8:39 AM MT9:39 AM CT10:39 AM ET15:39 GMT23:39 8:39 AM MST10:39 AM EST9:39 AM CT19:39 UAE10:39 ETNaN:� - Forte (knee) is out for Week 10.
Analysis: The aging Forte showed signs of life last weekend when he ran for season highs of 77 yards and two TDs against the Bills. He would have been a solid play this weekend against the Bucs.
Nov. 2, 2017 8:40 PM PT9:40 PM MT10:40 PM CT11:40 PM ET3:40 GMT11:40 8:40 PM MST10:40 PM EST9:40 PM CT7:40 UAE (+1)23:40 ETNaN:� - Matt Forte ran for 77 yards and two touchdowns on 14 carries Thursday in the New York Jets' 34-21 win over the Buffalo Bills. He added four receptions for 19 yards.
Analysis: This was the best game of the season for Forte, who had multiple touchdown runs for the first time in 2017. He rushed for his biggest output of the season with a juicy 5.5 average. Forte led the Jets in offensive touches and should be able to put up numbers again next week against Tampa Bay's struggling defense.
Oct. 29, 2017 2:17 PM PT3:17 PM MT4:17 PM CT5:17 PM ET21:17 GMT5:17 2:17 PM MST4:17 PM EST3:17 PM CT1:17 UAE (+1)17:17 ETNaN:� - Matt Forte ran for seven yards on four carries Sunday in the New York Jets' 25-20 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. He added six receptions for 45 yards.
Analysis: Forte has 19 catches for 145 yards in three games since returning from injury, so if you're desperate for a flex play, he's a reasonable option but only in PPR leagues.
Oct. 26, 2017 1:37 PM PT2:37 PM MT3:37 PM CT4:37 PM ET20:37 GMT4:37 1:37 PM MST3:37 PM EST3:37 PM CT0:37 UAE (+1)16:37 ETNaN:� - Forte was limited in Wednesday's practice but still appears likely to play Sunday against the Falcons.
Analysis: Forte really has no fantasy value having totaled just 157 yards on the season.
Oct. 22, 2017 1:51 PM PT2:51 PM MT3:51 PM CT4:51 PM ET20:51 GMT4:51 1:51 PM MST3:51 PM EST3:51 PM CT0:51 UAE (+1)16:51 ETNaN:� - Matt Forte ran for 41 yards on seven carries Sunday in the New York Jets' 31-28 loss to the Miami Dolphins. He added five receptions for 41 yards.
Analysis: Forte simply isn't a fantasy option anymore, totaling just 157 yards on the season.
Oct. 15, 2017 1:34 PM PT2:34 PM MT3:34 PM CT4:34 PM ET20:34 GMT4:34 1:34 PM MST3:34 PM EST3:34 PM CT0:34 UAE (+1)16:34 ETNaN:� - Matt Forte ran for 22 yards on nine carries Sunday in the New York Jets' 24-17 loss to the New England Patriots. He added eight receptions for 59 yards.
Analysis: Forte looked like he was at least capable of adding some life to the Jets' offense in the passing game.
Oct. 11, 2017 12:10 PM PT1:10 PM MT2:10 PM CT3:10 PM ET19:10 GMT3:10 12:10 PM MST2:10 PM EST2:10 PM CT23:10 UAE15:10 ETNaN:� - Forte will play Sunday against the Patriots after sitting out the last two weeks with a toe injury.
Analysis: Forte should get a decent number of carries with Bilal Powell expected to sit out with a calf injury.
Oct. 5, 2017 7:49 AM PT8:49 AM MT9:49 AM CT10:49 AM ET14:49 GMT22:49 7:49 AM MST9:49 AM EST9:49 AM CT18:49 UAE10:49 ETNaN:� - Forte (toe) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Browns after being unable to practice this week.
Analysis: After how well Bilal Powell and rookie Elijah McGuire ran the ball last week, the Jets probably won't be rushing back Forte.
Sep. 27, 2017 10:13 AM PT11:13 AM MT12:13 PM CT1:13 PM ET17:13 GMT1:13 10:13 AM MST12:13 PM EST12:13 PM CT21:13 UAE13:13 ETNaN:� - As expected, Forte (toe) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Jaguars. He is reportedly considered week-to-week.
Analysis: X-rays were negative, but Forte could end up missing a few games. This would seemingly up the value of Bilal Powell, but he's been struggling and rooke sixth-round pick Elijah McGuire has been taking away some of his touches.
Sep. 24, 2017 12:52 PM PT1:52 PM MT2:52 PM CT3:52 PM ET19:52 GMT3:52 12:52 PM MST2:52 PM EST2:52 PM CT23:52 UAE15:52 ETNaN:� - Matt Forte ran for 25 yards on eight carries Sunday in the New York Jets' 20-6 win over the Miami Dolphins.
Analysis: There was a Matt Forte sighting in New Jersey, yet he still does not have any fantasy value at the moment.
Sep. 17, 2017 4:47 PM PT5:47 PM MT6:47 PM CT7:47 PM ET23:47 GMT7:47 4:47 PM MST6:47 PM EST6:47 PM CT3:47 UAE (+1)19:47 ETNaN:� - Matt Forte ran for 53 yards on nine carries Sunday in the New York Jets' 45-20 loss to the Oakland Raiders. He added four receptions for 38 yards.
Sep. 10, 2017 1:48 PM PT2:48 PM MT3:48 PM CT4:48 PM ET20:48 GMT4:48 1:48 PM MST3:48 PM EST3:48 PM CT0:48 UAE (+1)16:48 ETNaN:� - Matt Forte ran for 16 yards on six carries Sunday in the New York Jets' 21-12 loss to the Buffalo Bills. He added three receptions for 20 yards.
Analysis: A fantasy stud as recently as 2014, Sunday was a reminder that 2014 was three years ago.
Aug. 29, 2017 3:53 PM PT4:53 PM MT5:53 PM CT6:53 PM ET22:53 GMT6:53 3:53 PM MST5:53 PM EST5:53 PM CT2:53 UAE (+1)18:53 ETNaN:� - NFL Network reported Tuesday that the Jets are making Forte available for trade.
Analysis: Forte is due to make a guaranteed $4 million this season, which may be an impediment to a deal given his age (32 in December) and the mileage he's accumulated during a nine-season career. In addition to ranking third among active backs in carries (2,253), Forte was hampered last season by a knee injury and missed most of training camp with a hamstring ailment.
Aug. 1, 2017 4:34 PM PT5:34 PM MT6:34 PM CT7:34 PM ET23:34 GMT7:34 4:34 PM MST6:34 PM EST6:34 PM CT3:34 UAE (+1)19:34 ETNaN:� - Forte is day-to-day with a tweaked hamstring and coach Todd Bowles has no immediate timetable on when he might return to practice.
Analysis: Forte missed practice Tuesday after being hurt Monday, and the Jets might opt to take it slow with the veteran to be sure he's ready for the regular season. Bowles didn't seem to indicate that the injury is serious. Forte also dealt with a hamstring issue last summer, but was ready for the season opener.
