X-rays came back negative on Matt Forte's toe injury.

It doesn't mean he's out of the woods, but it does sound like a day-to-day injury. Forte never returned to Sunday's win over the Dolphins after rushing eight times for 25 yards. We'll have another update on him by Wednesday.
Sep 25 - 3:55 PM

Bilal Powell played 28-of-63 snaps Week 3 against the Dolphins.

Powell's snap share was helped by Matt Forte (23 snaps) leaving early with a toe injury, but it was still a step in the correct direction. Unfortunately, Elijah McGuire also played 12 snaps, and it does not look like Forte is dealing with a serious injury. Holding onto Powell as a bench stash is more palatable than it was at this time last week, but he is still not worth using in starting lineups.
Sep 25 - 9:17 AM

Josh McCown completed 18-of-23 passes for 249 yards and one touchdown during a 20-6 victory over the Dolphins in Week 3.

The Jets officially aren't going 0-16, and McCown has some high hopes the rest of the way. "We expect to win a lot of games," he said. McCown has done a decent job of getting the ball down the field and had a 69-yard strike to Robby Anderson. He's still not really going to be an option and will be a low-end QB2 against the Jaguars in Week 4.
Sep 24 - 5:01 PM

Bilal Powell rushed 15 times for 37 yards and one touchdown, and wasn't targeted against the Dolphins in Week 3.

He also broke another huge run, but the play was called back due to a bogus holding call. Powell was finally able to produce after a lowly 13-yard effort in Week 2, but the Jets did roll with a three-back rotation for the second week in a row. Matt Forte did suffer a toe injury, but early indications are he is going to be OK. Fantasy owners can't trust Powell right now and he should be benched in almost all formats, assuming Forte is able to play in Week 4 against the Jaguars.
Sep 24 - 4:58 PM

Matt Forte rushed eight times for 25 yards against the Dolphins in Week 3.

He did not return to this game due to a toe injury in the second half. Forte was on the sidelines and seemed to be in good spirits, so perhaps he would've returned had the game been closer. When asked about the three-back committee this week, Forte mentioned it could help him stay fresh this season. Regardless, he'll be a very unreliable player to start in fantasy in this committee approach.
Sep 24 - 4:55 PM

Elijah McGuire rushed seven times for 34 yards against the Dolphins in Week 3.

He fumbled the ball in the fourth quarter as Byron Maxwell punched the ball out. McGuire was getting work on early downs, but coughing the ball up today will likely hurt his chances at getting work near the goal line. Matt Forte suffered a toe injury in this game and did not return, but it doesn't sound serious. Just keep an eye on McGuire in deep leagues.
Sep 24 - 4:52 PM

Robby Anderson caught 3-of-6 targets for 95 yards and one touchdown against the Dolphins in Week 3.

He caught a very nice 69-yard touchdown on a deep ball from Josh McCown. Last week, Anderson was only targeted four times for his two catches and 28 yards against the Raiders, so this game was unexpected. The Temple product had been underwhelming since the beginning of the preseason and isn't really worth adding in most leagues.
Sep 24 - 4:47 PM

Jermaine Kearse caught 3-of-3 targets for 42 yards against the Dolphins in Week 3.

After a two-TD Week 2 for Kearse, it was Robby Anderson having the big day. Kearse has 6.0 targets per game and he is getting plenty of snaps with a fair share of red-zone looks. Still, he's not really a player fantasy owners can trust on a week-to-week basis. He will have a tougher matchup against the Jaguars in Week 4.
Sep 24 - 4:43 PM

Austin Seferian-Jenkins caught 5-of-6 targets for 31 yards against Dolphins in Week 3.

The Jets didn't limit him for his first game and he was out there to start the first series. Seferian-Jenkins wasn't a lock to be active for this game, so he surpassed most expectations in a win at home. Still, it'll be tough to use him in one-TE leagues and he'll get a tough matchup against the Jaguars in Week 4.
Sep 24 - 4:41 PM

Charone Peake (ankle) is doubtful to return to Week 3 against the Dolphins.

He suffered the injury in the fourth quarter and limped off the field. Peake won't be needed with this game basically over.
Sep 24 - 3:56 PM

Josh Martin (ankle) is questionable to return to Week 3 against the Dolphins.

The Jets linebackers are playing their best game of the season in this one, so maybe the loss of Martin can get the Dolphins going despite a horrendous first half.
Sep 24 - 3:22 PM

Matt Forte (toe) is questionable to return to Week 3 against the Dolphins.

The Jets are running away with this game, so chances are Forte won't be back out there. Forte checked out with eight rushes for 25 yards and wasn't targeted in the passing game. The Jets stuck to their plan with a three-back committee with Bilal Powell getting some of the goal-line work. Fantasy owners will have a tough time trusting Forte most weeks.
Sep 24 - 3:15 PM

The Jets declared QB Christian Hackenberg, OL Brian Winters, WR Chad Hansen, TE Eric Tomlinson, CB Derrick Jones, TE Jordan Leggett and S Rontez Miles inactive for Week 3 against the Dolphins.

Bryce Petty is ahead of Hackenberg for the No. 2 QB spot, and the Jets will likely stick with Josh McCown in the short term.
Sep 24 - 11:51 AM

Muhammad Wilkerson (shoulder) is active for Week 3 against the Dolphins.

He's missed some practice this week after an injury during Week 2. The Jets defense is likely going to be on the field a lot today, so we'll see how Wilkerson's shoulder holds up.
Sep 24 - 11:48 AM

Robby Anderson (knee) is active against the Dolphins for Week 3.

He was given a big opportunity to start the preseason, but Anderson just can't get open and he's seen Jermaine Kearse run away with the top receiver spot. The Jets offense isn't strong enough to have more than one reliable receiver in fantasy.
