2016 Outlook: Bust (overvalued)

Last updated on Oct-07-2016 by Shawn Childs


Update (10/7): (DK – $6,200) – The great start by Forte after two games (264 combined yards with three TDs and seven catches) has been given away in the last two weeks (107 combined yards with four catches). On the year, Matt averages 23 touches per game (16.5 in the last two games). His value in the passing game has been lower than expected in the last two games with Bilal Powell gaining value (12 catches for 95 yards and eight rushes for 56 yards). Over the last two games, Forte was on the field for 75 plays compared to 65 by Bilal. The Steelers allow 4.0 yards per rush with three rushing TDs. RB have 24 catches for 318 yards and two TDs on 34 targets vs. Pittsburgh. The key for any Jets back in this game is the opportunity in the passing game. The trend points to Powell, so Forte is a fade for me in the daily games. Great player, but he needs to be on the field for all three downs to deliver winning value.

3.10 Scout Fantasy - Armando Marsal - Age is concerning, but was still a top 10 PPR running back last season despite missing twelve games. I’m expecting him to be involved in the Jets passing game.

4.02 Fantasy Insiders - Davis Mattek - As the primary pass catching back and projecting for around 200 carries, Forte feels like very easy value as the 2nd running back in a 12 team league.
