Matt Forte gets busy workload in Week 2 road loss to Raiders

Matt Forte was a busy man on Sunday against the Oakland Raiders, but it wasn't enough, as the New York Jets lost on the road to the Raiders by the final score of 45-20. Forte rushed for 53 yards on nine carries, with his longest run of day going for 16 yards. He also caught four passes for 38 yards, including a 34-yard haul. Forte led all Jets running backs with a healthy 5.9 yards per carry in the loss.

Fantasy Impact

Forte had a nice fantasy showing in this game, as he out-snapped and outplayed Bilal Powell. This backfield will be hard to figure out as the season progresses, and the team will be playing from behind most weeks as the rebuilding efforts continue. For now, Forte is a RB3 or a flex player at best, with Powell lurking in the background.
