Summary

Forte says the Jets view him as an every-down running back, and we agree. Yes, he's 30 and yes, he missed time due to injury, but he continues to perform at a high level and his yards per carry was 4.1 last season, an uptick from the 3.9 he had in 2014. The Jets won't throw to him quite as much as he is used to but the Jets ran the ball 386 times last season (compared to 362 passes) so he's still getting plenty of work. Bilal Powell could creep into his targets and carries a little, but we see him as continuing his trend of being a borderline top-shelf fantasy back this year. (May 20)

Jets | Matt Forte not ready to slow down (Sun May 15, 11:44 PM) - New York Jets RB Matt Forte said he wants break the older running back stereotype, and his goal is to rush for 1,000 yards and catch as many passes as the offense allows.

Our View: The Jets offense is going to have questionable QB play--even if Ryan Fitzpatrick returns to the team. They should feature Forte as the centerpiece of the offense. Jets OC Chan Gailey should be able to find the best ways to use Forte as a runner and receiver. We see Forte as at least a low-end RB1 with his new team.
