Injury Matt Forte ruled out
Knee injury
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 10, 11:45 am

New York Jets
After missing practice for the third straight day with knee swelling, New York Jets running back Matt Forte was declared out for Sunday's road game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Forte experienced some knee swelling this week which will keep him out of action against the Buccaneers. Expect Bilal Powell and Elijah McGuire to handle the running back duties. Powell makes for a solid RB2 option against a Bucs defense allowing the 4th most fantasy points to running backs.

Knee injury
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Nov 9, 11:45 am

New York Jets
Jets practice report (early version): RB Matt Forte (knee) wasn't spotted at practice, the second straight day he's sitting out. This is officially a concern. It also appears that CB Morris Claiborne (foot) and DE Mo Wilkerson (foot, shoulder) won't practice. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Forte's knee swelled up causing him to miss practice yesterday as well. We'll see how he does Friday but he's trending in the wrong direction for Sunday. If he sits, Bilal Powell and rookie Elijah McGuire would handle running back duties. Powell would be in the RB2 conversation against the Bucs.

Calf injury
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Oct 18, 1:45 pm

New York Jets
Did not practice: Wilkerson, Robby Anderson (ankle), Bilal Powell (calf) Limited: Ealy, Matt Forte #nyj (Brian Costello on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Powell missed Week 6 with a calf injury and is off to a bad start for Week 7. In his absence, Matt Forte handled 17 touches with Elijah McGuire accumulating 10. The Jets travel to Miami in Week 7.

By: Mike Krueger | Thu Oct 12, 12:45 pm

New York Jets
Jets injuries: Mo Wilkerson and Bilal Powell missed practice for the second straight day. Matt Forte was limited. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: It sounds like we're trending towards Powell being inactive and a shared backfield with Forte and rookie Elijah McGuire against the Patriots. McGuire would have some flex appeal in this scenario.


Injury Bilal Powell day-to-day
Calf strain

FFToday's Take: With the exception of his 190-total yard explosion in Week 4 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Powell has been a bitter disappointment for those owners who expected him to take over the Jets' backfield and benefit from excessive garbage time. Elijah McGuire may be forced to carry the load in Week 6 versus the New England Patriots should Powell and Matt Forte (toe) be unable to go.
