Forte is a great talent, but he is slowing down. He will likely share work with Bilal Powell, and at this point, I like Powell more.

Matt Forte, Bilal Powell to split carries in 2017?

New York Jets offensive coordinator John Morton told the media the team is planning on employing a "backfield by committee" approach to their ground game in 2017.

Fantasy Impact

Morton's remarks suggest that Bilal Powell and Matt Forte will split carries throughout the 2017 season. Although Forte opened the 2016 campaign as the starter, Powell garnered the bulk of the touches as the year progressed. I'd expect that trend to continue this year. Target Powell well ahead of Forte in fantasy football drafts, more so in the mid-rounds.
