Jets' Matt Forte: Listed as questionable for Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forte (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints, Eric Allen of the Jets' official site reports.

Forte's situation is worth monitoring closely as Sunday's 1:00 ET kickoff approaches. If he's able to suit up Sunday, he'd be in line to share snaps out of the Jets backfield with Bilal Powell, and of late, Forte has been the team's favored third-down option. In the event that Forte is scratched, Powell would be in line to see added work in Week 15, thus boosting his fantasy upside. With Bryce Petty now at quarterback in the wake of Josh McCown's season-ending hand injury, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com relays that one "distinct tendency" displayed by Petty when he saw starting action last season, is that "he threw a lot of checkdowns" to Powell.

Jets' Matt Forte: Misses another practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forte (knee) didn't participate in Thursday's practice, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

Forte could get back on the practice field in some capacity Friday, but regardless of what he's able to do that day, it's expected that he'll carry a questionable designation into Sunday's game against the Saints. The Jets may not decide on Forte's fate until after evaluating him during pregame warmups, making him a shaky fantasy option in Week 15. Even if Forte suits up, he'll have to share snaps out of the backfield with Bilal Powell, thereby limiting his upside.

Jets' Matt Forte: Sits out Wednesday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forte (knee) wasn't present for practice Wednesday, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

With no reported setbacks during the Jets' loss to the Broncos in Week 14, Forte -- who logged 26 snaps in the contest -- should return to practice Thursday, as he did the past two weeks after sitting out Wednesday's session. The larger issue for those considering Forte in Week 15 lineups is that he's in a timeshare with Bilal Powell, which limited Forte to six carries for 13 yards and two catches for 21 yards against Denver. If both players are able to suit up Sunday against the Saints, neither will offer much fantasy upside.

Jets' Matt Forte: Totals eight touches in defeat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forte rushed eight times for 13 yards and caught two of three pass attempts for 21 yards in Sunday's 23-0 defeat in Denver.

The eight touches were his fewest since Week 3, and he didn't do much with them thanks to a stifling Denver defense. Even so, it continued an up-and-down pattern of between eight and 15 touches in alternating games over the last four weeks, making it difficult to trust the 32-year-old in the middle of the fantasy playoffs. The schedule doesn't help his case, either, as the Jets travel to New Orleans in Week 15.

Jets' Matt Forte: In uniform Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forte (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Broncos.

Forte, who was held out of Friday's practice, is out there if you need him Sunday. However, given that he's in line to share work in the Jets' Week 14 backfield with Bilal Powell -- as well as Elijah McGuire to a lesser degree -- Forte is a speculative play, especially considering that he's also been managing a knee issue.
