The Jets running back situation is gross once again, as they simply do not want to give one of the running backs the majority of the workload, no matter who it is. Just twice have they given more than 11 carries to any running back and it was Bilal Powell in both situations, though one of them came when Matt Forte was out with his toe injury. There have also been just two situations where a running back has totaled more than 53 rushing yards and both of those performances came in one game against the Jaguars. Going against the Dolphins, you really don't want to trust any of them. The Dolphins have yet to allow more than 100 yards to an entire team on the ground, so trying to distribute that throughout three running backs, it gets ugly.

Matt Forte rushes for 22 yards, grabs eight catches in loss

Matt Forte was busy on Sunday during the Jets’ Week 6 home loss, as he had eight catches for 59 yards, including a long reception of 15 yards. Forte also rushed for 22 yards on nine carries, with a long run of seven yards.

Fantasy Impact

Forte looks to be healthy, as he kept busy and stayed on the field for most of the game with the Jets playing from behind. At this point, it’s musical chairs with this Jets backfield in any given week. Assuming all backs are healthy, the pecking order seems to be a 50/50 split between Forte and Bilal Powell, with Elijah McGuire spelling the two. So you’ll have to play the matchups and take a “wait and see” approach on a weekly basis. The Jets play a division game on the road against the Miami Dolphins in Week 7.
