Week 3 at Kansas City
Matt Forte has been the early fantasy steal putting up monster numbers the first two games. He has 62 touches and 264 yards from scrimmage plus three touchdowns last week after not recording one in Week 1. He did miss practice on Wednesday, but probably just a day off for the veteran.
The former Bear is proving he has something left in the tank and the Jets are using him. It might not be as easy this week against a Chiefs defense that is excellent against the run ranking 2nd in aFPA to running backs. Still, if Forte continues to get 30 touches a game, his value will remain sky-high.
Start Forte as a solid RB1 for Week 3 even with a road game against a good defense.
