News From The Past 90 Days
Forte to get "plenty of rest" in 2016
Expected to serve as lead back in three-man rotation
By: Doug Orth | Thu Jul 21, 7:35 pm

New York Jets
The Jets see Matt Forte as their lead back, replacing Chris Ivory, but he is going to get plenty of rest in a rotation that includes Bilal Powell and Khiry Robinson. The main question with Forte is how much tread he has left on the tire. Forte is now 30, which is seen by most as the point where running backs fall off the cliff. Forte is out to prove them wrong. Chan Gailey will come up with plenty of creative ways to get Forte the ball. Gailey loves to throw to running backs, and Forte is as good as it gets in that department. (New York Post)

FFToday's Take: Forte's ADP is at in the mid-to-late third round, so owners have already accounted for the likelihood Forte shows his age or shares too many touches. His ability to contribute in the passing game should allow him to remain very relevant, however, so owners should be able to expect RB2 numbers in PPR leagues barring injury. Powell should be considered Forte's handcuff and a player owners target in the middle-to-late rounds.


"Major touches" for Bilal Powell?
Jets went 1-4 without him last season
By: Doug Orth | Thu Jul 7, 6:15 pm

New York Jets
The Jets let Bilal Powell know how they felt about him by signing him to a three-year, $11.25 million contract in free agency. His ability to stick with the Jets through three general managers and four offensive coordinators shows how valued he is. It will be interesting to see how OC Chan Gailey divides up the carries between Powell and Matt Forte, as they have similar skill sets, so this could be a trickier division of labor for Gailey (than it was for a more physical runner like former teammate Chris Ivory). You can count on Powell getting major touches this season, though. Gailey will figure out a way. (New York Post)

FFToday's Take: Both backs signed for three years this offseason, with Forte inking a $12 M deal ($8 M guaranteed) and Powell signing for #11.25 M ($6 M), so the Jets appear to view the two players similarly at this point of their careers. Powell is unlikely to see "major touches" in the eyes of owners, but 100 is certainly a reasonable expectation. Between Powell stealing some catches and Khiry Robinson possibly taking the goal-line work, Forte owners might want to view him as a mid-RB2 at best.
