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 | Lots of rest for Matt Forte (Thu Jul 21, 04:42 PM) - New York Jets RB Matt Forte should receive plenty of rest this season with RBs Bilal Powell and Khiry Robinson also in the mix.

Our View: Forte will see a lot of touches in 2016 but with Powell re-signed, he should also stay fresh throughout the season. We believe he will put up solid RB2 numbers this year.
