Matt Forte

New York Jets
Note from FantasyPros Staff
Thu, Sep 22nd 3:35am EDT
Forte is on pace for 472 and remains an RB1 based on workload. We recommend to start him against the Chiefs.

Matt Forte rushed 15 times for 65 yards and caught two of four targets for minus-one yard during Sunday's 24-3 loss to the Chiefs.

Fantasy Impact
The Jets offense struggled with turnovers in Week 3 against the Chiefs. The struggles limited Forte's ability to get touches and he was not able to get involved in the passing game. Forte should bounce back but maybe not in Week 4 as the Jets play a tough Seattle defense.

At some point they'll have to stop giving Forte so many rushing attempts if they want him to last the season, but so far it hasn't happened. KC's run defense has been middling so far due to injuries. I expect they will get better and Forte to have his workload lessened, but I don't think that will all happen this week.

Forte has an insane 52 rushing attempts and 7 rushing attempts in 3 games, I doubt he holds up for the season at that pace, but he is a RB1 with those massive touch numbers.
