Matt Forte to remain with Jets

New York Jets beat writer Rich Cimini believes the New York Jets will retain running back Matt Forte for the 2017 season. "Forte is staying," Cimini said via his personal Twitter account while responding to a fan's question.

Fantasy Impact

Forte, 31, will likely remain with the Jets next season, according to Cimini. The dual-threat running back played in 14 games in 2016 while totaling 1,076 yards and eight touchdowns. Despite his age, he is expected to retain the starting job in New York's backfield. However, he'll continue to cede touches to Bilal Powell as he did last season.

Matt Forte RULED OUT Week 17

New York Jets running back Matt Forte (knee) is officially ruled out for Week 17.

Fantasy Impact

Forte will not play in the season finale Sunday against the Bills due to a lingering knee injury. Bilal Powell, who is dealing with injuries of his own that include an illness and a knee, will attempt to play and garner the bulk of the workload in the starter's absence. However, it will likely be Brandon Wilds, a UDFA, who receives the majority of the touches at running back if Powell is unable to go.

Matt Forte INACTIVE Week 16

New York Jets running back Matt Forte (knee) is officially inactive for Week 16.

Fantasy Impact

As expected, Forte will not play Saturday versus New England as he is dealing with a knee injury. Bilal Powell will start in his absence. Powell is in the upper tiered RB2 conversation - especially in PPR formats - for Week 16.

Matt Forte doubtful for Week 16

New York Jets running back Matt Forte (knee) is listed as doubtful on the Week 16 injury report.

Fantasy Impact

With Forte headed for an inactive designation, Bilal Powell is in line to start Saturday versus New England. Despite a tough matchup, Powell remains in the mid-range RB2 conversation for Week 16 as he will garner the lion's share of the workload in Forte's absence.

Matt Forte is limited in loss

Matt Forte had four rushes for 21 yards and one reception for seven yards, totaling for 28 yards in a 34-13 loss

Fantasy Impact

To be able to even play this week was shocking and he had his limitations. Matt Forte should be able to see the starter roll against New England on Christmas Eve next week, but Bilal Powell could steal some snaps due to Forte's injury.
