Matt Forte underwhelms, rushes for just 13 yards in blowout loss

Matt Forte had a game to forget, rushing for just 13 yards on six carries with his longest run of the day going for five yards. Forte also had two catches for 21 yards, with his longest catch of the day going for 14 yards.

Fantasy Impact

Forte, along with the rest of the Jets, were ready for this game to end the moment it began. If you started any Jets players this week in either DFS lineups or in the fantasy playoffs, chances are you were not in good fortunes. Assuming you made it past this week though, Forte has little value other than a low-end flex play for Week 15 on the road against the New Orleans Saints.

Matt Forte rushes for 58 yards, catches touchdown in victory

Matt Forte was busy during Sunday's home win against the Kansas City Chiefs, rushing for a team-high 58 yards on 14 carries, with his longest run going for 14 yards. Forte also caught three passes for 33 yards and touchdown, with his longest catch of the game going for 21 yards.

Fantasy Impact

Forte has now played in two consecutive games since returning from injury and has looked good doing so. If you hung on to Forte in your season-long leagues, he would make for a good flex option heading into the fantasy playoffs in Week 14. Forte is also a sneaky-good DFS option going forward, as his price on most DFS websites is affordable and can fill up the stat sheet quickly.

Matt Forte active for Week 13

Matt Forte is active for the Jets' Week 13 game against the Chiefs.

Fantasy Impact

Forte has battled injuries but was able to suit up last week, and will do so again here. His active status is actually bad news for fantasy owners, as it essentially renders him, Bilal Powell, and Elijah McGuire as virtually unplayable, in light of how crowded the backfield is.

Matt Forte rushes for 26 yards, leads team in carries

Matt Forte rushed for 26 yards on a team-high 10 carries in Sunday's home loss to the Carolina Panthers, including a long run of six yards. He did not score in the contest.

Fantasy Impact

Forte got some action in this game, but none of the Jets running backs could do any damage. Keep him on your bench and out of your DFS lineups until further notice.

Matt Forte active for Week 12

Matt Forte (knee) is active for the Jets' Week 12 game against the Panthers.

Fantasy Impact

Forte practiced on Friday, which suggested he had a chance to play in this one, and he'll give it a go. His presence further muddies an already crowded backfield and, in a tough matchup against a good Carolina run defense, further dims the prospects of both Bilal Powell and Elijah McGuire.
