  • Jets' Matt Forte: Intends to play in 2018
    By RotoWire Staff

    Forte (knee) said Friday that he's hopeful to continue his playing career in 2018, Calvin Watkins of ESPN.com reports. If Forte is serious about keeping his career alive, he'll likely have to find a new home, as the Jets are expected to cut the 32-year-old during the offseason. Though he's still an effective pass catcher, Forte has been limited by chronic knee problems during his past two seasons in New York that have limited him to 3.7 yards per carry both in 2016 and 2017. As a result, it's unlikely that any team that picks Forte up this offseason would earmark the veteran for much more than a third-down role.

  • Jets' Matt Forte: Likely to be cut
    By RotoWire Staff

    Forte (knee) is likely to be cut this offseason, NorthJersey.com reports. Forte battled a number of injuries this season, and with Bilal Powell and Eliajah McGuire handling the workload in his absence, there appears little reason for the Jets to bring back the 32-year-old. Forte played only 13 games this year, rushing 103 times for 381 yards and two touchdowns while adding 37 receptions on 45 targets for 293 receiving yards and another score. He's still a usable running back when healthy, but his days of handling a full complement of touches seem over.

  • Jets' Matt Forte: Lands on IR
    By RotoWire Staff

    The Jets placed Forte (knee) on injured reserve Saturday. Forte will finish his season with a career low 381 yards rushing and just two touchdowns. He also provided 293 yards and one touchdown through the air on 37 receptions. The 32-year-old running back will now set his sights on the 2018 season, assuming he wants to return.. In his absence, Bilal Powell and Elija McGuire figure to see the majority of the work in the Jets' backfield.

  • Jets' Matt Forte: Listed as questionable for Week 17
    By RotoWire Staff

    Forte (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's season finale against the Patriots. Per Darrlyl Slater of NJ.com, Forte relayed Thursday that he's spent much of the season "playing on one leg" while battling with swelling in his right knee. Assuming Forte toughs it out in Sunday's 1:00 ET contest, he'd be in line to work in a time-share with Bilal Powell and Elijah McGuire, an arrangement that hasn't yielded robust production from Forte over his last three outings. He therefore profiles as a Week 17 fantasy dart, given his reduced volume of late.

  • Jets' Matt Forte: Says he's 'playing on one leg'
    By RotoWire Staff

    Forte, who sat out Thursday's practice, said he feels like he's spent most of the season "playing on one leg" due to swelling in his right knee, Darryl Slater of NJ.com reports. In recognition of the pain Forte continues to experience with the knee, the Jets have routinely given him days off practice throughout the season in an attempt to keep him fresh for game days. While he's been able to suit up for 12 of the Jets' 15 games -- including each of the last four -- Forte has seen his effectiveness wane as he's played through the injury and been stuck in a timeshare with Bilal Powell and Elijah McGuire. Forte stated that he won't require surgery on the knee and plans to return to the Jets in 2018 to honor the final year of his contract, but it wouldn't be a surprise if he was limited or held out entirely of the Week 17 contest against the Patriots.
