This backfield has remained a messy one throughout the season, but one that has had value in certain matchups. This isn't likely one of them. Forte has totaled 46 touches in his last three games, which is solid volume, while Powell has totaled 39 touches in those games. It's near a 50/50 timeshare, though Forte is the more valuable fantasy asset. Most will look at the Broncos last week and see what they allowed to Kenyan Drake, but they were missing three defensive starters in that game, and two of them were from the defensive line. We have to pay attention to the status of both Domata Peko and Derek Wolfe this week, but the Broncos have allowed under 3.5 yards per carry this season and just six rushing touchdowns.

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.
