It was one of those situations, where Forte lost his job while trying to deal with an injury last year. Some have said that Powell was playing because Forte was hurt, but that wasn't the case over the final two weeks. Considering what the Jets are paying Forte, he's going to have a role, but you can't expect too much out of a soon-to-be 32-year-old running back.

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.
