Jets' Matt Forte: Efficient in Oakland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forte gained 53 yards on nine carries and 38 yards on four receptions (four targets) in Sunday's 45-20 loss to the Raiders.

Forte was far more productive than Bilal Powell, who had six carries for 13 yards and zero catches on two targets. Elijah McGuire also got involved with six carries for 29 yards and a catch for seven yards, getting most of his work while Oakland was only leading by one or two scores. It was actually Forte who thrived in garbage time, with 52 of his 91 yards coming on one fourth-quarter drive. The Jets figure to stick with a three-man backfield committee Week 3 against Miami.

Jets' Matt Forte: Thirty-six total yards in opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forte rushed six times for 16 yards and added three catches for 20 yards on five targets in Sunday's 21-12 Week 1 loss to Buffalo.

Forte and Bilal Powell were similarly ineffective, as the former gained 36 yards on nine touches while the latter turned 12 touches into 39 yards. Both should continue to see plenty of looks given the lack of alternative weapons in this offense, but goal-line opportunities will likely be scarce. Until one running back emerges as a clearly superior option, both should continue to cut into each other's value.

Jets' Matt Forte: Doesn't expect to be traded
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forte said Thursday that Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan told him not to listen to trade rumors, Manish Mehta of the NY Daily News reports.

Forte isn't exactly an ideal fit with the rebuilding Jets, but the team does need someone besides Bilal Powell to handle touches, and the 31-year-old's $4 million guaranteed base salary would be a major obstacle in trade talks. While the possibility of a trade shouldn't entirely be ruled out, Forte likely will open the season in New York splitting backfield work with Powell. The Jets travel to Buffalo in Week 1.

Jets' Matt Forte: Set to sit Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forte is unlikely to play in Thursday's preseason game against the Eagles.

Forte's future with the Jets is clouded, but the coaching staff was never going to risk the health of the most-accomplished running back on the roster in the exhibition finale. Don't be surprised if 2017 sixth-round pick Elijah McGuire receives most of the work out of the backfield Thursday.

Jets' Matt Forte: Could be moved
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jets are reportedly open to dealing Forte, Conor Orr of NFL.com reports.

As the report notes, Forte's guaranteed $4 million salary could present an obstacle to that end, but with the Jets clearly in a rebuild, it makes sense that such a scenario is being explored by the team. In the event that Forte is dealt, the path would be cleared for Bilal Powell to see a higher-volume role, plus there'd be added opportunities for some of the team's younger backfield options, such as sixth-rounder Elijah McGuire.
