Summary

Matt Forte was supposed to be an upgrade over Chris Ivory, but instead he ran for less yards (813 compared to Ivory's 1070), barely topped him in receiving yards (263 compared to 217) and played one less game. In fact, it was his worst year of production for his career in nearly every statistical category. So things, clearly didn't go the way the Jets or Forte had hoped they would. Will that change this year? It's hard to see room for improvement, as Bilal Powell looked good enough to take on a larger share of the lead role. Powell had a higher yards per carry average, ran for more yards, was targeted on more passes and had more receptions than Forte did, which was not expected. All this points to the fact that Forte's best days are clearly in the past, and that makes him unreliable on a week to week basis. He also hasn't played a complete season since 2014, which will only make it harder for him to produce consistently. (May 22)
