Jets RB Matt Forte has knee surgery, expected to be OK by spring

NJ.com - [Full Article]

Jets running back Matt Forte had arthroscopic knee surgery on Friday, coach Todd Bowles said. Doctors performed the scope to repair Forte's ailing right knee, which had a torn meniscus.

Forte said earlier this season he had been playing the majority of the year with the injury. Eventually, the pain became too much. The Jets put Forte on the season-ending injured reserve late last week.

Fantasy Impact:

Bowles indicated Forte should be healthy come spring, when the Jets begin their offseason conditioning program. The team doesn't have an official timetable yet, though.

Scouting Report

Week 14 vs San Francisco
Matt Forte is the lone fantasy bright spot on the New York Jets. He did struggle last week, but so did the whole team. In the end, he is the best offensive player on the team.

The matchup is very good for Forte this week, as San Francisco is ranked dead last in aFPA to running backs. Forte should get plenty of touches with Bryce Petty back in at quarterback. Start him as a low-end RB1 for Week 14.
