Week 3 vs. Miami Dolphins
The Jets are looking like a true running back by committee situation, but Matt Forte has seemed to take the lead back role. He has the most touches and has played 54% of the snaps compared to 42% for Bilal Powell.
Forte has rushed for only 69 yards, so his numbers are more a result of a poor Jets offense. He will face a Miami defense ranked third in aFPA to running backs.
Forte does carry some fantasy value for Week 3, as the Jets will try to rely on the running game and he should continue to get the most snaps. He rates as an RB3 or flex option against the Dolphins on Sunday.
