Jets RB Matt Forte (knee, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 10. With Forte out, Bilal Powell is a low-end RB1 (and chalk DFS) play. In the four games that Forte has missed over the last two seasons, Powell has averaged 18.3 touches for 108 yards and 0.50 touchdowns. Elijah McGuire is also worth a look as a RB3/flex who should see 8-12 touches as the change-of-pace back. Beat writer Rich Cimini intimated that this might be a multi-week absence for Forte.

Week 10 at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Matt Forte has 18 touches in Week 9 for 96 total yards. He also played 48% of the snaps as the Jets are utilizing three running backs at this time. Forte is definitely in the game plan, but we don't feel he will double Bilal Powell's touches every week as these should balance out. Another factor is Forte is nursing a sore knee and has not practiced all week.
If Forte does play, it's a great matchup for Jets RBs, as Tampa ranks 26th in aFPA to running backs. Because of the injury and Powell's presence, Forte only ranks as a high-end RB3 or flex play for Week 10. Keep an eye on his injury status leading up to kickoff.
