Matt Forte - RBPosted 9/22/17 1:17pm ET
New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) was removed from the injury report after fully practicing Friday, Sept. 22.
Huddle Up: Forte saw an uptick in touches last week but remains part of what will be a weekly headache as a trident backfield -- one that figures to struggle more often than not, mind you. Avoid him in all situations where a clearer path to stable point production is available.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 9/21/17 11:16am ET
New York Jets RBs Bilal Powell, Matt Forte and Elijah McGuire will all receive playing time against the Miami Dolphins in Week 3, according to offensive coordinator John Morton.
Huddle Up: Powell entered the season as the starting running back, but Forte leads the team in rushing yards with 69 yards. Powell and Forte can still be flex options in point-per-reception leagues because of their pass-catching abilities. Owners can avoid McGuire for the time being.
Robby Anderson - WRPosted 9/21/17 11:26am ET
New York Jets WR Robby Anderson (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 21.
Huddle Up: Anderson appears to have a decent chance to play in Week 3 and will continue to see a solid amount of targets. He has caught six passes for 50 yards in the first two games of the season, but owners probably can find better options to use in their lineups.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 9/21/17 1:14pm ET
New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 21.
Huddle Up: Forte will be part of a committee at running back this week, but he did receive most of the touches among the backs in Week 2. He will be facing a solid Miami Dolphins defense but could be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues since he could have a role in the passing game.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 9/20/17 2:36pm ET
New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) participated fully in practice Wednesday, Sept. 20.
Huddle Up: Forte and the Jets' running attack have been nearly non-existent over the season's first two games. We anticipated the Jets falling behind and having to throw a lot this season, though. Forte should remain on fantasy benches for now even when he's healthy.
Robby Anderson - WRPosted 9/20/17 2:31pm ET
New York Jets WR Robby Anderson (knee) was not able to practice Wednesday, Sept. 20.
Huddle Up: Anderson has played second fiddle to Jermaine Kearse in New York's passing game through the first two games of the season. If Anderson can't play or is limited at all then Kearse would provide WR3 or flex appeal.
Austin Seferian-Jenkins - TEPosted 9/20/17 5:26pm ET
New York Jets TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins has served his two-game suspension, but head coach Todd Bowles said it is too early to say if Seferian-Jenkins will play in Week 3. Bowles said Seferian-Jenkins needs to get into a little better shape before he is ready to play.
Huddle Up: Seferian-Jenkins probably would have a limited role if he plays and probably can be avoided this week, but he has a chance to be at least a No. 2 tight end for owners later in the season.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 9/17/17 8:10pm ET
New York Jets RB Matt Forte finished with nine carries for 53 yards and four catches for 38 yards in a 45-20 loss to the Oakland Raiders in Week 2.
Huddle Up: Forte has remained involved as both a runner and receiver so far this year, and if he can stay healthy, he looks like a potential RB3.
Jermaine Kearse - WRPosted 9/17/17 8:02pm ET
New York Jets WR Jermaine Kearse finished with four catches for 64 yards and two touchdowns in a 45-20 loss to the New York Jets in Week 2.
Huddle Up: The Jets figure to be trailing a lot this year, and someone has to catch the ball. Kearse can a be a decent WR4.
Bilal Powell - RBPosted 9/17/17 8:17pm ET
New York Jets RB Bilal Powell finished with six carries for 13 yards and didn't record a catch in a 45-20 loss to the Oakland Raiders in Week 3.
Huddle Up: Powell is off to a slow start, and with Matt Forte earning touches and the offense struggling, you may want to sit Powell against the Dolphins in Week 3.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 9/15/17 2:45pm ET
New York Jets RB Matt Forte (abdomen, knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 15, and is not on the injury report for Week 2.
Huddle Up: Forte probably will see a similar workload this week but is facing a solid Oakland Raiders defense. Owners in all leagues should keep Forte on the bench.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 9/14/17 12:44pm ET
New York Jets RB Matt Forte (abdomen, knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 14.
Huddle Up: Forte will remain the No. 2 running back as long as Bilal Powell is healthy. He should receive a handful of touches in Week 2 but can be avoided in all fantasy leagues.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 9/13/17 5:01pm ET
New York Jets RB Matt Forte (abdomen, knee) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 13.
Huddle Up: Forte should be ready to play in Week 2 unless he suffers a setback during the week. He was limited to 30 total yards on nine touches and probably will see a similar amount of work this week. Owners should be able to find better options to use in their lineups and can avoid Forte.
Jermaine Kearse - WRPosted 9/10/17 3:31pm ET
New York Jets WR Jermaine Kearse caught seven of his nine targeted passes for 59 yards in a 21-12 loss to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, Sept. 10.
Huddle Up: Kearse did a good job, but the fact the Jets' starting QB situation is so messy lowers Kearse's value as a starter a great deal. Like with Josh McCown, think of Kearse as a replacement during a bye week. Kearse was the target of trade talks in the offseason, so a change of scenery may have done him good.
Josh McCown - QBPosted 9/10/17 3:25pm ET
New York Jets QB Josh McCown threw three interceptions, one on a two-point conversion, and he finished 26-for-37 for 189 yards in a 21-12 loss to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, Sept. 10.
Huddle Up: Can you say mess? The Jets' QB situation is muddy at best, and this means avoid McCown like the plague. A previous tip suggested McCown would be best as a bye-week replacement, but games like Sunday make that even shaky.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 9/10/17 3:55pm ET
New York Jets RB Bilal Powell and RB Matt Forte combined for just 38 yards Sunday, Sept. 10, in a 21-12 loss to the Buffalo Bills.
Huddle Up: Buffalo was near the bottom with its run defense last year, averaging over 133 yards given up on the ground. The fact the Bills did this to New York is not a good sign for either back. Forte may still be a flex option for deeper leagues, but the Jets' QB issues means the running game may not get the respect.
Bilal Powell - RBPosted 9/7/17 12:54pm ET
New York Jets RB Bilal Powell (ribs) had his second straight day of full practice Thursday, Sept. 7.
Huddle Up: Powell is basically the only offensive hope for the Jets this season. Matt Forte seems to be wearing down and the passing game is a shell of itself compared to 2017. Powell is most valuable in PPR leagues after catching 58 passes a season ago. He's a solid RB2 this week versus a lackluster Buffalo Bills defense.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 9/7/17 1:00pm ET
New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) participated fully in practice Thursday, Sept. 7.
Huddle Up: It will be interesting to see how involved Forte is this week. Bilal Powell is New York's No. 1 running back now, but Forte still has some gas in the tank. There is hesitation in deeming him a flex starter for Week 1, but you can do worse.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 9/7/17 3:25pm ET
New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 7.
Huddle Up: Forte should be in uniform in Week 1 against the Buffalo Bills and will share work with Bilal Powell. Forte could be a decent flex option for owners in deeper leagues because he will see a decent amount of touches.
Bilal Powell - RBPosted 9/7/17 3:30pm ET
New York Jets RB Bilal Powell (ribs) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 7.
Huddle Up: Powell will be the starting running back for the Jets and should receive a majority of the touches at the position. He will also help in the passing game, which makes him valuable in point-per-reception leagues. Powell can be a solid No. 2 back in fantasy leagues.
Bilal Powell - RBPosted 9/6/17 2:36pm ET
New York Jets RB Bilal Powell (ribs) was listed as a full participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 6.
Huddle Up: Powell appears to be on track to face the Bills in Week 1, and he is expected to split the touches with Matt Forte in the New York backfield. Powell rolled for 122 rushing yards with one receiving score in the regular season finale against the Bills in 2016. He has a little more fantasy appeal in PPR formats, and he'll see enough targets to make him a viable RB2 in those formats.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 9/6/17 2:35pm ET
New York Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) was able to take part in a full practice session on Wednesday, Sept. 6.
Huddle Up: That's the good news. The bad news is that Bilal Powell (ribs) was also a full participant, and he is expected to be the bigger contributor in the Gang Green backfield. Forte has devolved into an RB3 or flex option in most fantasy formats after years being a first-round selection in Chicago.
Robby Anderson - WRPosted 9/6/17 11:47pm ET
New York Jets WR Robby Anderson, who is facing felony charges of resisting an officer with violence stemming from a May 8 arrest, had his trail hearing postponed until Dec. 26, after a continuance was granted. The original hearing was set for Monday, Sept. 11.
Huddle Up: This is good news for anyone that drafted Anderson as the Jets have just one game after the Dec. 26 hearing, and the NFL is unlikely to impose discipline before that takes place. Anderson might be the best option in a bad situation for the Jets, giving him some WR4 value with upside.
Austin Seferian-Jenkins - TEPosted 9/2/17 2:56pm ET
New York Jets TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins was placed on the Reserve/Suspended list Saturday, Sept. 2.
Huddle Up: Seferian-Jenkins will miss the first two games because of the suspension but should be the starting tight end when he returns. He should be one of the top targets in the Jets passing game, which makes him a decent No. 2 fantasy tight end.
Chandler Catanzaro - PKPosted 9/1/17 5:02pm ET
New York Jets PK Chandler Catanzaro will be the team's kicker this season after they decided to waive PK Ross Martin.
Huddle Up: Catanzaro probably can be avoided in most leagues since the Jets are not expected to be a high scoring team this season.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 8/31/17 2:44pm ET
New York Jets RB Matt Forte is believed to be on the final roster bubble, in the opinion of ESPNNewYork.com's Rich Cimini. Cimini cites Forte's age and the presence of RB Bilal Powell and rookie RB Elijah McGuire as the main reasons for Forte's potential departure.
Huddle Up: It was recently reported that Forte was being shopped, so the fact that he may be cut shouldn't come as a huge surprise. This is Powell's backfield and McGuire has already shown he can be a promising backup. For now, view Forte as no more than a flex. He could still be picked up by another team if released.
Josh McCown - QBPosted 8/31/17 7:23pm ET
New York Jets QB Josh McCown had to leave the game briefly in the final preseason game Thursday, August 31, against the Philadelphia Eagles when he was hit in the midsection by LB Joe Walker. Despite needing medical help on the field, McCown was able to walk off under his own power and returned one play later. Overall for the evening, he was 6-of-8 for 57 yards.
Huddle Up: McCown had himself a fine preseason, ultimately finishing 9-of-12 for 129 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions. It's no surprise that he'll be under center for the Jets in Week 1, but simply put, he shouldn't be under center for any fantasy teams whatsoever in the opening week. He's nothing more than a bye-week replacement, and even then, it's a stretch to deploy him considering the Jets' woeful lack of depth around him.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 8/31/17 7:51pm ET
New York Jets RB Matt Forte said general manager Mike Maccagnan has assured him that he will not be traded.
Huddle Up: Forte will share playing time with Bilal Powell if he stays with the Jets but should see a decent amount of touches each game. Owners could consider him a No. 3 running back or a flex option in most leagues.
Matt Forte - RBPosted 8/29/17 10:10am ET
The New York Jets have reportedly 'gauged' the trade market for RB Matt Forte, according to sources.
Huddle Up: It's not a surprise considering the fire sale the Jets have been running the better part of the offseason, and partially explains why he saw so much time ahead of Bilal Powell in the team's dress rehearsal game last weekend against the New York Giants. Moving him will be difficult considering is $4 million guaranteed salary, so it is more likely he'll be spending the season working in tandem with Powell. He's a low-end, low-upside RB4 at best at the moment.
Josh McCown - QBPosted 8/28/17 1:14pm ET
New York Jets QB Josh McCown has been named the Week 1 starting quarterback by head coach Todd Bowles.
Huddle Up: Not much of a surprise considering the play by Christian Hackenberg and Bryce Petty. It was McCown's job to lose and he has experience and leadership on his side. The Jets will have to pass plenty in 2017 in order to keep up with teams, but that doesn't mean McCown is a reliable starting fantasy quarterback. He's merely a bye-week replacement.
